I’m not talking about having the right variable winds, sun angle, and water to build a sand castle. The issue here is much more serious…
As you may or may not know, I have been prepping for the last two month’s for a figure competition. I would like the chance to compete by late summer-early fall, so building that body must begin now because the next wave of Kardashian endorsed weight loss supps are BULL. (as you should all know!) And really, in essence, you are what you eat!
Without further adieu, I present my latest eats:
My favorite protein options for when I’m running low on time have been Quest bars and protein pancakes. Along with these Oskri bars which are an old favorite of mine!
Here are my lunch faves: (Can you tell I heart quinoa?)
My dinners have been somewhat textbook body building with a lean protein (usually beans/avocado/greens since I’m veg):
A sidenote to the above picture: About two weeks before my rageful periods, I’ve been noticing my craving and necessity for extra protein has been skyrocketing. (Well duh, being vegetarian will do that to you!) Grass fed meat is one of the only options I can consume in terms of protein due to it’s agreement with my stomach. And boy did it taste so good!
Onto some snackage:
Well, I rest my sand castle. I have begun to “build the body” and am noticing small improvements. (Specifically small cuts and curve in my upper abs!) My chest usually is the first place to notice weight loss but for some reason it’s not functioning as usual. I am not complaining but if I’m lopsided on stage I would turn incredibly red. Oh the curse of curves! (sometimes)
What are your eats looking like this week? Have you ever participated in a bodybuilding competition? I feel like I’m in over my head, but without risk comes no reward! 😉
Peace, love, and build that body!
