WIAW: Post-Fitness Competition Goodies!

Good morning everyone and...

Happy Wednesday!

First off...

I can't believe how quickly my fitness competition has come and gone! (Thanks for all the congratulatory messages!!!)

I felt like a million bucks in my personally designed
Daydreams Fitness Wear Bikini!
Thanks Joan'z'!

I mean..

Is it already over?!

Has it already been four days since the show?!

Well...

Perhaps it's not over, over as I do have a little something to share with you all real soon! (But I'll save that for later as I have to fine tune some details first!)

So without leaving you hanging...

Let's move along into the weekly tradition of What I Ate Wednesday thanks to Jenn over at Peas and Crayons...


And trust me my friends...

I have loads goodies to share with you all today!

Yep....

Team FFA knows how to celebrate with our favourite foods!

I'd been wanting Cheesies for the longest time!
Prior to this prep, I never once thought of cheesies lol

What's FUn about these celebratory potlucks is...

It gives us a chance to spend more time with each other (which is a treat in itself)...

Our first potluck was at Jenny's right after the competition ended.
Then at Nikki's the following afternoon!

And...

It gives us the opportunity to...

Share our competition experiences with one another!

Looking at pictures from the competition!

It also gives us time to...

Talk about the 'what now' factor of it all (life plans, goals, keeping FIT and healthy etc...!)...

Remembering that we were and are beautiFUl before we started working towards the stage!

All while we...

Enjoy some of our favourite eats we bought or made...

SuperFit knows what's up ;)
Chicken, salads, pastas, salmon, quiche.
My plate :
Quinoa Salad, Egg thing, Lasagna and Quinoa Salad.
I also went up for some Salmon after finishing this up :)

Which does...

Include yummy desserts!

Balls.
The famous Peanut Butter Pie to the left.
I brought cakepops from Isobel's Cupcakes!
My plate:
PB Balls and a piece of PB Pie I shared with SuperFit.
I also had a cakepop and a few little *CaNdIeS*

Now...

After having had our FILL of different foods and flavours...


And keeping with the 'popping the champagne bottle' tradition...

There was non-alcoholic champagne :)

Many (if not all of us) were excited to get back to the gym and continue on with our healthy eating! (Which includes more variation and balance than in our strict competition regimes of course!)

**I should mention that for some, another prep would start on the Monday for something coming up soon... hint hint!)**

All in all...

We definitely enjoyed our post-competition eats but...

I think what we loved first and foremost was...

Being with each other!


And....

I think that's sweet :)

Questions FU You....

What's your favourite dish to bring to a potluck?
Do you celebrate with your family, friends, teammates after an event?
