Almost 4 Weeks Out: Who said 'dieting' ain't FUn?!

**June 16-17**

On the last day away from home...

I would once again, not have the opportunity to get a FUll taste of this amazing local sandwich place I'd often hear about!

It looked sooooo delicious!


Last year...

I could only have their salad as I was FUllowing a weightloss 'diet' (it was amazing nonetheless!!!)

Sandwich or No Sandwich...

I made sure to get SuperFit one of his FUvorite treats before leaving this FUntastic Town I was in...

The FUmous Date Square!

As it came time to make my way back home...

I had just enough FU'd to last me the car ride...

Not surprising I'm sure ;)

The drive wasn't too long minus the urgent need to pee!

UnFUrtunately for me...

I was stuck in traffic for an hour!

I seriously debated parking my car on the side of the road and running into a bush to do my business (it was that bad!)...

But I FUgured...

It would look pretty PEE-ti-FUl.

When I FUnally arrived to a service station...

I ran to the restroom! (and I don't run for anything - I'm a terrible runner ~ so I'm told!)

I took this FUto after the fact! lol

In the end it would all prove to be in good timing as...

It was time to eat! (Although I really do not wish this scenario upon anyone - ever!)

I took a FU extra minutes to prepare my afternoon snack (and to calm my nerves)...

I come equipped! ;)

While I was cutting up my pepper, I kept on thinking:

"Omg that was close!"

Needless to say...

I made a point to drink very little for the remainder of the ride home...

The power of Eska!

When I eventually pulled up to our driveway...

I was happy to be home and...

Happy to see dinner was not made ;)

Well, mine wasn't at least!
(SuperFit hates cooking! He didn't want to guess what I had probably decided on making myself FU dinner anyway!)

Good call I say! 

During my 6 hour long drive...

I thought up of a number of recipes I wanted to try out (seeing I'd soon have the opportunity to include a FU more FU'd options to my 'diet' ~ FU a limited time only)

That night...

I made myself Spinach Protein Pancakes



It's like Xmas on my plate!

Ingredients:

1 HandFUl of Spinach
8 Egg Whites
2 Espresso Shots of Oatmeal (1/2 cup)
1 tsp of Chat Masala (optional)

This was my FUrst attempt at this new creation of mine and it proved to be delicious! (although I would make them bigger the next time around)

I should mention that on this particular evening...

My body was telling me it was FU'in tired....

We all have our moments and I won't pretend like I don't!
Not being able to pee really took a toll on me LOL

SuperFit was quick to say:

"Are you having a 007 'Bathtub Moment'?"
(Her FUrst year competing she had a 'moment', much like mine!)

Sometimes during pre-contest prep, you and your body simply get exhausted.

That said...

You just have to keep your head up high because as SuperFit said in the past...

"No one ever said it was going to be easy!"

And there is absolutely no way...

I'm going to let a little bump in the road steer me off track!

I'm going to continue giving it 100%!
And no matter what, I will have given it my best! :)

Plus...

I had one more day until I could test out more of my recipes (which were stored in my brain ready to come out and be eaten!)

Such as...

This particular dish... (a little twist to my recipe above)

Inspired by Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham (I used Tuna!)
Yummy!

Ingredients:

 4 Egg Whites
1 Small Can of Tuna
2 tbsp of Ground Flax Seeds
1 BIG HandFUl of Spinach

Optional Ingredients:

Chat Masala
A Touch of Garlic Salt
Pepper to taste

Blend and Cook in a FUry Pan over medium-low heat.

To be completely honest...

Finding new ways of making 'dieting' exciting has both...

Inspired and motivated me to do more with what I have!

I'm learning to be creative with the FU'd I make...

No carb Chicken FUJITA
I will post my recipe in my next blog!

Because...

'Dieting' should be FUn! 

Look at how excited I am! ;)
