Powering Through!

Hey everyone and...

Happy What I Ate Wednesday to ya!

Mmmmmmm....Fooood. ;)

Can you believe I'm already...

17 sleeps away from competing at the OPA Ontario Championships?!!!


Like...

Holy FUreakin' moly!

Say whaaaaaaaa?
Yep...
17 sleeps!

Needless to say...

I'm super pumped about competing and...

I can't wait for all the FUn to be had during the Toronto weekend!

SuperFit and I in Toronto just a couple of weeks ago :)

In case some of you don't know...

Two of my FFA Teammates will also be competing at the Championships...

Sue!

And...

I can't wait for all the memories to be made as we embark on our journeys together! (This is one of the most special things to me about competing. The memories made and shared!)

Did I mention...

I have Family and Friends who will be coming out (and up) to cheer?! (I do and I was totally overwhelmed with happiness when they told me!)

Without a doubt...

I couldn't be and feel more grateFUl to be surrounded by such love and support! (And this applies to all those who have been and are cheering from afar and virtually! So, so grateFUL you don't even know! Your encouragement means so much to me!)

Gah...

I can't wait!

Okay so...

Seeing that it's Wednesday and all...

Today I get to share with you a peek into my eats as of late!

Thanks Jenn for this great link up!

As I mentioned to you last week...

Things are pretty plain and simple...

I love me my Burnbrae Farms Egg Whites!

So....

There's nothing toooooooooo exciting about what you're about to see!

Nope.
lol

Exciting or not...

It's what will generate the last few inches of progress we are reaching for...

Oatmeal and Eggs with Flax Seeds.
It doesn't look amazing but I love it.

So...

I'm doing what I have to do get to myself to where I want to go!

Plus...

What I'm cooking up doesn't taste bad at all which makes...

What I'm eating totally fine with me! (There's never a single bite left on my plate!)

Oven Baked Chicken.
Cumin and Chilli Flakes.
Rainbow Trout.
Cumin, Chilli Flakes and Fresh Rosemary
Steamed Chicken and Veggies.
I special ordered this dish on Sunday for Mother's Day dinner!

As my prep quickly passes by me...

You better believe...

I'm taking notice of all the changes my body is making while...

Appreciating every single little inch of progress as they come along! (Big or small!)

Needless to say...

I'm pumped, I'm excited and...

Reality has definitely set in!!! (17 sleeps friends, 17!!!)

Without a doubt...

I'm going to continue giving it my all and...

I'm going to continue powering through! (Knowing that I'm giving 110% of myself to my prep makes me proud of what I will be bringing to the competition stage. It's a goal I've set for myself and committed myself to so, I will be happy knowing that I have no regrets come the moment I step on stage! I am me and this is what I have to bring....FUFACE and all hehe)

  23. YOU ROCK! I know how hard it is to do this so mucho respect!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yay! You're going to rock the competition! I can't wait to read about it and see your photos from the competition!
    I'm working towards a half that's in about 11 days. Eek! It's going to be more challenging than I planned for, because of the hills and wind that are apparently brutal on the course. Oops. Oh well, I'll be happy to finish!
    I like structure with my food, but I've been ravenous lately, and eating a lot more than I usually do. I'm trying to gulp down more water to try to calm the eating-urge down, but I'm just hoping it's my body getting prepped for the 13.1 miles it has to endure.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm Fu-reakin jealous of the yummy food you get to eat.

    ReplyDelete
  26. oooh not long til your comp now! Good luck!! Im sure you'll do great though :D.
    All your eats still look really good, sometimes simple is best. I love structure to my meals; Im always pretty organised with what Im going to be having.
