The End of Week 4: Chicken, Fish, Temptation and a Side of Gold!

**October 25-27**

BeFUre my great adventure in the underground...


I had to FUligh out FUrst!

As seen in my previous post ~click~
I had a good read to go along with some preventative measures.

As I had a connection beFUre reaching my FUnal destination (thankFUlly not like the movie!)...

I sipped on a *CaNdY FiT* Protein Shake à la Starbucks!

10oz. Water, 2 shots of Espresso,
3 scoops of Protein Powder (10g. per scoop),
Ice and Vanilla Stevia (I brought with me).
Sugar-FUree Vanilla/Caramel Syrup or sweetener.
I had this on my return FUlight as well :)

A FU hours later...

I arrived at my hotel and unpacked my FU'd! (Oh, and my clothes!)

It lasted me the week :)
My BreakFUst, Lunch and Dinner were taken care of !

As it will be of no surprise to you and me...

My week was filled with Tempation! (I'd be lying if I said it isn't hard at times to resist! Like, really hard!)


While I had my Egg Whites...

Hard-boiled Eggs.
I took the Yolk out.

I resisted the "goodies" calling out my name! (Not literally)

I didn't take any...
I've been controlling my purchasing and
taking of PB FU no good reason.
Reason being:
I can't have any.
Although that reason never stopped me beFUre!

Ah well...

There will be plenty of opportunities to treat myself to some goodies later on! (But not mid-week mind you!)

So FU now...

I've got a goal to reach and I don't plan on treating myself (unless of course I get a green light!)!

**Again, I weigh the importance of my goal vs. sweet temptation. The goal always wins. I don't want to cheat myself of my progress!**

I'll simply (sometimes easier said than done!) continue eating the FU'd prescribed to me in my prep toward my FUtoshoot! (~click~)

Nothing beats a pretty plate.
It makes your FU'd that much more enjoyable!
Lovin' the colorFUl salad.
I couldn't tell you how many times I had this dish while I was away.
Lean Bison...
I was up North...I had to give it a try!
It was pretty good.

Okay so enough about FU'd and stuff...

Let's get to the GOLD! (Chaaaaa Ching!)

BeFUre heading down 4500ft...

I had to dress the part! (FU safety precautions!)

After adding 15lbs of equipment (and I wasn't done yet!)...

I was almost ready to go!

I mistakenly took two right-handed gloves.
So my two thumbs up is actually a thumb and an index finger in this FUto.
Silly FU.

Once briefed about the darkness we were about to enter...

We were escorted to the elevator of dooooom! (Probably the FUreakiest part of it all! And it's not really called the elevator of doooooom lol)

We were 28 in total in one elevator.
The maximum was 50.
I was happy we weren't 50!

One quick elevator ride down...

The doors opened! (Dun, Dun, Dun...)

I have to say...

The lights on our safety hats came in reaaaallll handy as it was pure darkness past the FUrst 10 feet!

It had a very eery feel to say the least!

We walked 2200ft into the mine...

It was muddy and dark! (I was being extremely careFUl with my knee/calf injury as I didn't want to slip and fall!)

Mining FU.
It was a real eye opener!

After a once in a lifetime experience...

My brother (Mr. FUntastic) was thrilled to hear about it! (He's a Geologist!)

I have to say...

This is something I never would have imagined myself doing! (Or even think of wanting to do!)

All in all...

It was really neat to have gotten the opportunity to do so! (Although, I was looking FUward to getting out and breathing in some FUresh air and most importantly, seeing the light!)

If you are wondering...

I didn't leave with any gold!

This is what it looks like when it's not a piece of jewelry!

After washing myself clean (boy did I ever need it!) and...

To FUnish off my week away from home...

I did a tiny bit of cardio!

About 15 minutes worth.
I had to stop due to pain.
I will get there soon enough :)

Stay Tuned FU more on *CaNdY FiT*
