Competing at the OPA Ottawa Classic, #WIAW and Celebration Eats!

Hey everyone and...

Happy What I Ate Wednesday to you! (Feels like forever since I’ve done one of these! Well, maybe not lol)

Mom's Rice Krispies are the best.

As promised in one of my earlier posts

Today I will be sharing with you a glimpse into some of my of post-competition celebratory eats!

Mmmm...
LC's Healthy Bites!

But, before I do so…

I thought I should mention to those who may not know…

I competed again since the OPA Ontario Championships!

Yep…

I competed this past weekend at the OPA Ottawa Classic!

source

I have to say…

What made this event even more special was the fact that…

SuperFit competed too!!!! (He hadn’t competed in over two decades and just last Wednesday, decided to join me in his own competitive journey!)

Our competitor numbers!
His and Hers!
<3

Honestly…

It was so awesome to make a date day/night out of competing together! (I mean, never did I think we would ever compete together! No doubt, it was super cool and FUn to have him there not only as my Coach but, as a teammate too! It was totally surreal!)


And, in speaking about the event…

The whole day was a blast! (I met some fabulous people and was able to meet some blog followers too!)

No doubt…

I was totally happy we registered for it! (We registered just three sleeps before the actual competition took place lol)

Thanks to the organizers, staff and volunteers for everything
you did in making the event what it was!

Just to recap a little bit from the event…

Here are a few highlights from our date that made this day extra special!

First off…


My amazing Sponsor and Master Designer:
Joan MacDonald!

And…

Both my on-stage and off-stage experience was amazing! (Everyone was super nice and, the atmosphere was really chill!)


Also…

Switching up my role a little bit as both SuperFit and I prepared to step on stage was really neat too! (I packed up his meals and treats, helped him pump up and encouraged and supported him as he got ready to step on stage and rock his awesome package!)


Without a doubt…

From beginning to end…

The whole event was an experience I will never forget! (And, it’s one that we may be doing again real soon as we both qualified for the Provincials coming up in September!!! We haven't yet decided on our plans as we can wait until 2014 to compete at the Provincials. We shall see hehe)

I won 2nd Place in my Bikini Category
SuperFit won 3rd in his Physique Category
Yeeee!

All in all…

It was great FUn and…

I’m so grateful I got the chance to compete with my man by my side!


In short...

My experiences competing in fitness competitions has only strengthened me in my journey to the stage and through life (as it has pushed me beyond what I ever thought possible) and...

Not for one second do I not appreciate and value what each competition has taught me as I move forward!

If there's one thing that I've tried, tested and proven to be true it's that…

If you believe in yourself, anything is possible! (Trust the process and be patient with yourself!)

So…

Are you ready to see some of my celebratory eats now?

K, I thought so!

Thanks Jenn for this great link up!

**Note: Do keep in mind that I only ‘treat’ myself to what I want for just a couple of days post-show. After that, I switch back into my maintenance program (or a competition diet depending on my competitive plans). Also, do know that I don’t stuff myself silly until I can’t stuff myself any more. I savour and enjoy all the things I want without going nutzo. In other words, I don't give myself a tummy ache...I just satisfy my taste buds hehe**

Post OPA Ontario Championships:

Burger and Dessert for dinner from Milestone's.
Eggs and a Waffle for breakfast.
Matcha Green Latte with Soy Milk from Starbucks.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Quest Nutrition Bar.
(Compliments of Truly Jess who satisfied my Quest Bar cravings!)
Sushi for dinner.
I nibbled on a few other things too.

Post OPA Ottawa Classic Show:

LC's Healthy Bites (Coconut Peanut Butter Protein)
Cinnamon Roll Quest Nutrition Bar.
Burger, Fries and Onion Rings from The Works (I really enjoy a good burger)
Homemade Oatmeal Banana Protein Bites
Waffle with Strawberries from Cora's (I also had two eggs and toast)
(I ate 1/4 of the Waffle and all of the Strawberries)
Sushi for dinner.
Can you see a trend in the things I enjoy eating lol

That's it that's all folks (isn't that enough?! LOL)...

Have a tasty day friends!

I went out for my first ride of the season yesterday!
I felt good, strong and fast!

Oh and remember...

This Friday is #RECIPEFRIDAY so be sure to link up to a recipe you've been making and loving!

  9. MMM sushi. My husband doesn't participate with me, as his disability doesn't allow it. Plus it gives me a break from the stay-at-home mom gig, and gives him and B some dad/son bonding time while I am training. He is definitely a huge supporter though!
