WIAW: BirthDAY Edition!

First off...

Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes yesterday!

I am so, so overwhelmed by all your love and kindness...

Thank you! (Did I say that already?!) ;)

Check out this cool laptop I got!
Thanks Little M!


Alright so...

Today is Wednesday, which means...

It's time for another edition of What I Ate Wednesday thanks to Jenn over at Peas and Crayons!

Like my new apron?!
Thanks Nikk!

As I'm now a little less than 4 weeks away from competing in both Serious About Fitness and Physique Canada shows...

My little birthday indulgences and pre-ordered birthday cake (thanks Mom!) will have to wait until post-competition! (Which I'm totally fine with! It just means I get to celebrate my birthday again in a few weeks! lol) 

As I have celebrated my birthday twice already (once right after my half-marathon and yesterday...(my birthday typically lasts 7 days lol))...

I figured I'd share with you some of the eats I had on my actual birthday and save the race after-party and other stuff for later! (Cool? Cool!)

Let's remember...

I am following a competition regime, meaning...

I have little wiggle room when it comes to getting ultra-creative with the food I eat! (But I do try my best nonetheless!)

Okay so...

Enough blabbering, let's get to the goods!

Like every morning...

My day starts off with a coffee! (I think I enjoy the thought of coffee more than the taste itself! It's that one thing that starts my day! I love that first sip. Aaaaahhh)

So good.

For my special birthday breakfast...

I decided to add a little Mrs. Dash heat to jump start my day!


I did so by sprinkling on some of this goodness onto my Egg Whites! (Mmm Mmm!)

I really enjoy my @burnbraefarms Egg Whites.
I am not tired of them at all.

Although I will admit...

I do really enjoy my Protein Oatmeal Muffins in the morning too! (I FUelled up on these for my race this past weekend!)


Like last week....

My bowl of Ground Flax Seeds didn't disappoint! (I'm still enjoying my serving of seeds like Oatmeal lol)

Hello Fake Oatmeal!

Fast forwarding to dinner (because I failed at taking pics of my snacks and lunch!)...

SuperFit and I enjoyed supper at one of our favorite restaurants!

Don't worry...

I special ordered my meal to make it Competitor Friendly!

To no surprise...

Caffé Mio didn't disappoint!

Steamed Veggies and Chicken!

SuperFit also enjoyed his salad!

Look at all that goodness!

To finish...

I had dessert!

Sure did!

Nothing like a little after dinner delight ;)

Oh, and...

I also enjoyed a bountiFUl of fruit too!

Dans un  Jardins Guava Exfoliant and Moisturizer!
(It's important to exfoliate and moisturise your skin weeks before the competition as your tanning cream will better absorb into your skin without blotching!)
Thanks G!

Alrighty well...

That's all the food talk I have for you today!

I hope you all have a fabulous and tasty Wednesday!

Oh wait...

Teddy was pretty good this week, so I don't have anything to show for what he could have possibly gotten his nose into!

Good boy.

    After all this, I hope your birthday cake is super sugary ;-).
