Part 2 ~ 7 Weeks Out: Kicking Temptation in the FU'in Butt!

**continued**

After an eventFUl and temptatious day, I decided to go for a FU'in long walk...

As SuperFit would say...
"That's my Girl"

Since I was in Niagara FUlls, I had to see them...

Being a Tourist is FU'in awesome ;)

Up close and personal....

But not Dangerously close ;)

My good FUriend and Colleague, SD, enjoyed being a Tourist just as much as I did...

It doesn't get more romantic than this ;)

Enjoying the Greenery.

The pretty flowers :)

And the colorFUl rainbow.

It wasn't long until we parted ways...

So we captured our last moment together
on this beautiFUl day :)

After saying our goodbyes, I continued on with my 2 hour long trek through the city...

I went that-a-way! ;)

There was a lot of FU'in...

Walking up hills...
And walking down hills.

At least I could stop off at a Starbucks to hydrate myself as well as sugar load with an ice cream cone from DQ in the middle of my climb...


I didn't stop for either!

Once I reached the top...There was a mall. Yipee!!!

Mall/Casino/Hotel
It looks far more appealing at night :)

I did a quick run through to see if they had anything difFUrent than in Ottawa...

Of course, the FUrst thing I'd be faced with would be....

*CaNdY*
I didn't go in.

Window shopping at its best ;)

Even the Soda Machines were trying to tempt me!
lol

But nothing is more tempting than doing a little power shopping....

And this is something I deFUnitely gave into...
Summer is just around the corner right?! ;)

Once I FUnished touring around, I made my way back to my room and had dinner...

I'm sure you could have predicted this by now lol
Chicken up close and personal has never looked so
unnappealing!

I also made myself a coffee...

Not quite the same as the coffee shop itself...

SuperFit was kind enough to send me what he was having for dinner...

I'd rather have chicken ;)

The FUllowing morning, I'd be having the same breakfast as the day before (and it would remain as such throughout my trip)...

I really do like egg whites so I looked
FUward to them :)

Although, I wouldn't be having...

PEANUT BUTTER and JAM!!!!
Don't worry, I didn't take any...
This time ;)

Nor...

The Pastries and Apples!
FUnny enough, I had just been talking to SuperFit
about how much I'd Love an Apple :(

Really?!
They must have tapped my cell phone!
lol

As lunch quickly approached, I ran up to my room and grabbed....

Tuna!

And a bag of...

It's a Yummy Herbal Tea :)

Once I got what I needed, I went back downstairs and splurged on...

Veggies!

Of course, I wouldn't have the pleasure to savor...

I was told they were the best desserts
many have had in a long time!
For those who knew about my competition...
Well they said the desserts were repulsive ;)

If that wasn't enough temptation to control...

Haagen Dazs  Ice Cream Bars were ofFUred.

And so were Cookies.

And Milk.

I had...

Loads of Coffee

And...
A big Ol' Piece of Chicken...
While watching Oprah mind you :)

Oh well, July 17 is right around the corner! :)

After enjoying my afternoon Chicken, I vegged for 20 minutes before heading to the gym...

Tired Baby Fu

Was I ever glad I got my FU'in butt out of bed because no words can describe the view I had while doing my cardio...

**I FUnished my weight training before heading to Niagara FUlls, so all I had left was cardio**

It really doesn't get better than this!!!!

I did a FU arm exercises to keep the Pump going :)

Before you knew it, it was time for me to get ready FU dinner...

I made a point of wearing heels...

Baby Heels ;)

The FUnal package

**I should point out I fell right on my face during this trip as a result of wearing heels. I tripped over my own feet and face planted. I bruised my knee. Practice makes perFUct!**

During this trip, I made two special orders:

1. Hard-boiled eggs for breakfast; and
2. One plated dinner.

On this particular evening, my 'special' meal included...

Cucumber wrapped salad no dressing.

A big piece of meat...
Not!

A plate FUll of Carbs...
Double Not...

Steamed Fish and Veggies.
Ding Ding Ding!!! :)

I ate it all.

After eating this well all week, I decided to treat myself...

I WISH!!!!
I couldn't believe it had marshmallows :(

In reality, I ended my meal with...

Some tea :)

Needless to say...

I was faced with another week filled with the most difFUcult of temptations! And...

I passed...successFUlly!!!

I must say...

FUghting the urge to cheat has only empowered me in my trek towards the stage!!!

As it came time to head home...

 I FIT in one last cardio session at the gym...

It wasn't the biggest gym, but it had everything I needed.

UnFUrtunately, I didn't get the same view as the day before :(

One hour later, I gobbled down breakfast before checking out...

Surprised? ;)

I also grabbed some mixed nuts and dried fruit for SD for the car ride to the airport (I was up much earlier than her lol)...

It smelled so sweet and so nutty :)

I had two pieces of chicken left...

1. One for my morning snack; and
2. One for lunch.

 I couldn't find my FUrk in the car.

As we got to the airport, I was once again questioned by Security ~ 
I am no longer surprised by this.

My inFUmous bag was searched again....

They found scissors!!!
I didn't even know I had scissors lol
Apparently, I could have kept them if they were
1 inch smaller.
Odd don't you think?

I didn't put up a fight and was happy to give them away ;)

Moving on...

As our FUlight wouldn't be taking off for a little while, I helped myself to...

A Loooooooong Espresso.
I was pooped!

BeFUre long, we made our way to our gate.

We were notified our FUlight was delayed due to fog (as seen in my gym photo above!)...

I ended up shopping around and bought SuperFit...

A Fedora...
It ended up being too big for his small head.
Ah well, I get to add it my collection!
Point to note: Do not buy one size FITS all.

An hour later, we boarded our plane and SD handed me my fav drink...

So refreshing!

It was also time for my lunch...

The Fumous Chicken Breast.
This was my last piece!
Oh, and I ended up finding my FUrk!
As a result of stabbing myself with it while searching through my bag.
Perhaps the FUrk was more dangerous than the Scissors ;)

After a FU days away, I was happy to be home.

I patted myself on the back for a job well done and for not having succumb to any temptations!

All I have to say is...

I feel stronger than ever and I couldn't be more excited for my competition!!!

So...

Bring It On! Cuz Imma Kung FU Temptation right in the FU'in butt!

Because I'm going to fit into my posing suit damnit! ;)
