Today, I’m just over 6 weeks out from my first competition… OMG!! It’s already here…
I have been doing my workouts, as scheduled by my trainer and following the meal plans as much as possible. This isn’t acceptable anymore. I am now committed to being 100% “ON”.
Workouts are pretty easy for me to follow. I am a fitness junkie so going to the gym or working out at home, is a ‘done deal’ any day of the week!
However, my weaknesses lie in my eating. Although, I am following the meal plans laid out for me; I have been known to eat a few extra spoonfuls (or more?) or my “clean” peanut or almond butter. At times, I enjoyed an extra unplanned meal but for the most part; the nut butters are my nemesis.
I am newly committed to winning this battle! And to think I started on the most challenging day of all; my “NO” carb day. Today, I only get to enjoy mostly proteins, fats and vegetables. Granted, I’m allowed a protein shake twice today and a corn thin; once. Nothing else. It’s tough, I’m not gonna lie. But I did it today. I DID IT!!!!
I took notice of the difficulties in these typical days and how I can better handle them.
My breakfast is easy to do. I get my veggie and egg omelet with avocado and salsa; as well as my coffee. HAPPY!
Meal 2 is pretty easy to get in too; a protein shake and the 1 corn thin with some nut butter …although this can be dangerous when I’m not paying attention!!
Meal 3 is a BIG chicken salad and it’s enjoyable but I noticed that this is when I start to wonder; am I going to make it through today?
Meal 4 is a repeat of meal 3 and now I’m not as happy as I was in the morning….
This is the time I am vulnerable, if I’m not careful.
I noticed when I’m overwhelmed, stressed or tired; I’m more apt to grab the jar of nut butter and take a “few” tastes of the “edges”…
Let’s be real…the stupid “edges” aren’t going to do anything for this craving…so this is the time I could really go CRAZY!!!
Then reality hits and I’m onto my day.
Meal 5 is my salmon and veggie dinner and I really do enjoy this meal…
Meal 6 is the stupid protein shake with some nut butter…
Are you sensing my irritation? Enter the “nut butter” addition again and chaos can ensue~
Okay, I’m not overdoing it all the time on my NO carb days but when I’m not focusing on taking care of my needs (non-food related), all hell can break loose.
I’m now past all of that crap. Today I was 100%!! I didn’t wander anywhere near extra foods or ‘butters’ of any kind.
