Much better diet day! I started off with my green smoothie with brown rice protein. For lunch the fam had chick fil a but I had a hummus wrap with sunflower kernels. For my snack I ate celery with peanut butter and did not have dinner just had some chocolate banana superfood muffin my kids and I made. No oil and no eggs! I did 100 pushups and biked 9 miles. My calories were 1230. I didn't eat enough greens today. My cycle is in a few days and that is why I have been cheating on Teddy grahams and other junk. I may wait to take pics on Sunday bc I am retaining a lot of water. I am excited because I have noticed changes on my back and upper!

Rough weekend bc my kids are sick so my training and diet suffered. My kids come first and I can always get back on track. I am thinking about increasing my cals to go on a bulking dirt but I am afraid of gaining too much fat in the process. Not sure what to do. Back on track tomorrow!

Fitchick, your measurements sound good..I wouldn't focus on the weight LOSS but more so the LEAN MUSCLE GAIN. Eat more & more often otherwise you'll forego the expense of putting on Lean Body Mass which is what you want.


I just did my first figure comp, and depending on the federation you go into, they tend to love tall gals like yourself that have just enough definition, but still are very feminine in their figure. If you buckle down, train with heavy weights & start eating MORE...more as in more large green salads, add sprouts which are high in protein & nutrients, so that you're getting complete foods. Green smoothies are great, but add more greens no more "milks" just water, and back off on high sugar fruits. A more veggie based Green Smoothie is: spinach, red pepper, carrot, apple & a beetroot. Or do apple & parsley, spinach & banana, or watermelon & celery...adding to all of them Chia Seeds which are another protein source you can get at whole foods store.


Hope this helps

No workout today

Bought the tae Bo DVD yesterday to mix things up a bit. It was fun


I feel like my legs are getting bigger, I feel like it is fat but maybe muscle. It is hard to tell when I look in the mirror. Taking pics soon.

Thanks vegimator, I just tend to binge too much and I think it may be because I didn't eat good food for the past year on my old diet....I can't compete if I binge so I do need to get control before I undo all of my hard work..


Maybe eating gluten is doing this? I didn't eat it before

No more bingeing for me! I started off my day with a green smoothie with hemp protein. For lunch I had a baked potato with broccoli and a side salad without dressing, coffee,coke zero and water. I think I may have a gluten intolerance so I am staying away from it. I felt miserable yesterday but today I feel fabulous!


I am going to wait until the spring to compete. We have my daughter's bday next month, a trip planned after and then the holidays. I want to be able to enjoy these occasions and not be stressed right now eating for competition. It gives me more time to prepare and focus more. I will not give up bc I am continuing to see small changes. It will only get better!

I just got this book called the bikini competition guide in the mail yesterday and was looking over it today; it talks about doing a lot of drastic things close to competition, like seriously dehydrating right before competition, and taking water loss pills 24-48 hours before competition...were you planning on doing that? That stuff scares the crap out of me!

Do you think it's possible to compete without dehydrating? Or do you think if someone didn't they would stick out like a sore thumb? I wanted to compete to look awesome and be healthy; I don't think dehydrating yourself is the best way to get a healthy look! it's so silly!

I don't know but I want to be healthy too without putting my body through that. I think I would be miserable. One of my friends just competed in figure and she carb depleted for a week and then loaded before the show and had no water at all the day of the show and only a cup the day before....the next day she had eaten so many carbs her veins were popping and looked completely different than the day of the show!

This weekend went by so fast! I didn't work out bc I wanted to take a few days off. I measured my waist this morning and I was down 1/4 of an inch and I lost 1/2 inch on my biceps! All of my jeans are too big! I am taking progress pics this week so I guess I will see if I have made any changes.

I had oatmeal, hummus wrap, peanut butter, cinnamon cereal,2 boca patties and pineapple
