WIAW: Fitness Competition Eats - Second Edition!

Happy Wednesday Friends!

Happy it's Wednesday :)

As we're now halfway through the week...

It's time for me to share with you a glimpse into what I've been eating over the past few days with another edition of...

What I Ate Wednesday! (Thanks Jenn for this FUn way to share our eats!)


As you all know...

I'm getting ready for two fitness competitions taking place on the same day so...

What I'm putting into my tummy are all the things required to get stage ready!

I have to say...

The excitement is definitely there and I'm beyond pumped for the show date! (Only 10 more sleeps!)

I got my suit last night!
It's at home with me! :) :) :)
I FUreakin' love it!

And just so you know (as the days are winding down)...

We're tracking how my body is changing a little more closely to ensure everything is going as it should! (And tweaking certain things if and when necessary! Crunch time my friends! Crunch time! Yeeee!)

So are you ready for me to stop talking and get to sharing?

K. 

Yesterday...

I put up a recipe for my mini protein bites!

Love these!

They have been such a delight to eat on my carb days! (Honestly so fun to crunch and munch on! Especially when they are nice and warm right out of the oven!)

Mmmm Mmmmm.

Other things I've been eating (and drinking as per usual) are...

Egg Whites :)
and coffee of course lol
Honestly...
I love egg whites and will definitely continue eating them post-comp!
I sprinkled on some Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle spice blend.
Flax Seeds Bowls
Chicken and Veggies Bowls with some Mrs. Dash Garlic Herb goodness.
Chicken and Spinach

And something I made as of late...

Pan fried Dill Halibut!

Recipe Ingredients:


Instructions:
  1. Season your fish
  2. Gently place the Halibut in a Olive Oil PAM sprayed fry pan and cook over medium low heat
  3. Cook one side for about 2 minutes and the other for another 2 or 3 minutes (I like mine browned)

Squeeze some lemon over top and enjoy!

If you're wanting to know what SuperFit has been eating...

Here's a little something I made for him...

Chicken and Broccoli.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 Diced Chicken Breast
  • 1 cup Broccoli
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 handFUl of dried Cranberries
  • 1 T of Char Crust Seasoning (I used Roasted Garlic Peppercorn) 

Instructions:
  1. Over medium low heat, spray your pan with Olive Oil and add your Broccoli and water
  2. Once Broccoli has slightly softened, add your Chicken
  3. Sprinkle on your Chart Crust Seasoning
  4. Let cook (stirring around every so often)
  5. Add Cranberries
  6. As soon your Chicken  has thoroughly cooked...
  7. Serve and Enjoy!

Oh and one last thing before I leave you today...

Given that we celebrated Thanksgiving weekend just a few days ago...

I thought I've FUel fill you in on some of the goods that were served! (Not for my eating though lol)

Mr. FUntastic was given a new title of Master Turkey Cutter.

If you're wondering what I ate...

Here's my plate!

Turkey and Lettuce :)
It was yummy!

Now (I have to admit)...

Sometimes it's hard to be surrounded by a whole bunch of mouthwatering foods and...

To reFUse everything being passed in your direction but...

Not for one second did I feel like I was missing out on anything!

I have a goal to reach and no succulent dish of any kind is going to lead me astray or...

Get in the way of accomplishing what I set out to achieve! (Nuh unh!)

Not even my sister Kiki's birthday cake...

Kiki's birthday is on Thursday!
Compliments of Isobel's Cupcakes!
I hear it was just amazing!

All in all...

Competing in a Fitness Show is a goal I set out to achieve so....

If I were to cheat, I'd only be cheating myself! (So by keeping myself focused and on track, I know I will have given 110% of myself!)

To be honest...

I'm extremely thankFUl to have an amazing support system that allow me to reach my goals, always!

I'm definitely so very grateFUl and appreciative of that! (Because I know it can be difficult if the support isn't there!)

I must admit, talking about all of this has left me...

Hungrier than ever in reaching this goal I have set before me!

  5. Good for you, way to stick with your goal! Having a support group is great, even if they don't fully understand the whys of it all, knowing that someone believes in you is awesome. :)I love making chicken and broccoli (or whatever sturdy green thing we have in the fridge.) I'll have to try adding cranberries next time, it sounds good! I love using tamari or white miso w/ fresh lemon juice as a marinade & seasoning, better than just salt. Happy WIAW! :)

  7. Luckily, sometimes being vegetarian has its advantages at big feasts like that. My options are very very limited so it makes it incredibly easy to resist just going overboard. Kudos to you for sticking to your goals!!! Can't believe the comp is coming up so fast.
