#WIAW- Bodybuilding Eats


To build something requires tactful skill in most cases. It requires patience, time, and energy. You must anticipate that there will be “bumps in the (proverbial) road” before you commit yourself whole heardtedly.

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…

My serious face. Also known as my "pretend I have high cheek bones by looking like Nemo" face.

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!

Planning a post on these bad boys within the next week! Stay tuned!

My dinners have been somewhat textbook body building with a lean protein (usually beans/avocado/greens since I’m veg):

Spaghetti Squash bowl. HEAVEN.

I spy with my vegetarian eye: yes, a grass fed meat burger! :O

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:

Nothing sweet here. Isn't that kind of disappointing? The spices on the cucumber curbed my sweet tooth!

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!

  1. Such great food choices! They’re all ones that I would certainly pick. I love how you weaved strawberries into that meal too.

    I have never participated in a BB comp! Best of luck to you. 🙂
