I’ve been working like a mad woman in the gym lately, and it’s starting to catch up with me. I’m 7 weeks out from my competition now, and all bets are off on the occasional cheat if I’m going to get on a stage in a bikini and not humiliate myself.
The good news is that I’m sweating with the oldies at my new gym!
After my posing class with Jupinko, I decided to sign up for a membership at the little fitness center we met at as it was cute and one of the old people that was working out there told me I looked great.
If there are two things that make a girl feel great, it compliments and being the youngest person in the room by about 20 years.
Yes, my new gym could be mistaken for a retirement center, but I love it.
Oh, and this is my view from the treadmill.
So here are my eats as of late. They’re getting more and more snoozerish by the day….
Meal 1 – My beloved protein pancakes. Favorite meal of the day….
Meal 2 – soy yogurt, some strawberries and Vega protein powder.
Meal 3 – a honkin salad the size of a small donkey and tempeh fingers.
Meal 4 – On the run baby – just some Vega powder and water this time.
Meal 5 – carrot ginger soup and more of those tempeh fingers
There should have been a meal 6, but at some point, you just gotta say no to more food. My mouth just refused to open for anything that wasn’t wine or chocolate.
And I didn’t have access to either of those, so off to bed I went.
They should seriously make a movie out of my meal plans. Bound to be a hit, right?
