Day 33 Roasted and Toasted Garbanzos

Here is a recipe I am going to do this weekend. Sorry, everything deleted again and it will not save unless I post it so.. I hope you guys have a good night and I will hopefully be up and running tomorrow..

Stolen from pinterest.. a man and his grill or something.. I dont know but I’m pissed so goodbye.

“ROASTED & Toasted Garbanzos”

INGREDIENTS:
-3 Cups Garbanzo Beans (rinsed)
-2 Tbspns Olive Oil
-1/2 Tspn Garlic Powder
-1/2 Tspn Ground Cumin
-1/3 Tspn Smoked Paprika
-1/3 Tspn Chili Powder
-1/4 Tspn Sugar
-Salt / Cracked Black Pepper to Taste

METHOD to the MADNESS:
-Pre-Heat Oven to 400 Degrees.
-After rinsing Garbanzo Beans, place on Serving Plate covered by Paper Towel.
-Allow to DRY for at least 30 minutes over Paper Towel.
-Place Beans, Olive Oil, & ALL Spices into sealable Plastic Bag… And, SHAKE!!!
-Once Ingredients mixed THOROUGHLY, open Bag & spread Beans across Cookie Baking Sheet.

GET FIST DEEP into that DELICIOUSNESS & Enjoy the CRUNCH of A Bachelor & His Grill’s ORIGINAL, “ROASTED & Toasted Garbanzo”!!!

NOTE: I used ORGANIC Canned Garbanzo Beans. If you live in the Midwest, Meijer Organics or Full Circle Farms Organic Canned Garbanzo Beans BOTH meet the Recipe need & are relatively INEXPENSIVE @ ~$1.25/15oz.  Living outside the Midwest US, I’m sure there are PLENTY of Grocery Alternatives to Meijer or Full Circle Farms. 🙂

Day 23 idk wtf is going on.

 

I woke up at 6am. Wide awake because Marley wouldn’t stop licking me. but I was wide awake. So I got up. checked emails and shizznit. Then I did my daily get up.
730am finished my protein shake. this time i added the super blend food (hemp cacao and maca) and the pb2 ice and water) It was actually pretty good 🙂

oh and I snacked on the last 1/4 of the lemon bar. I also grabbed 2 cuties to snack on..  (they have seeds and they suck).

I’ve been snacking on fruit and  bc of the natural sugars, I don’t really crave anything.
1. don’t eat fruit past 11am  UNLESS u work out like i do at night, and this is because fruits do have alot of sugar, regardless if its natural or not. It still affects the body. So use up those carbs!
2. check on which fruits are the best to eat, bananas are great after a workout!**

952am Feeling good, super excited about doing Legs today. Focusing more on squats, lunges of course! Cant forget the calve raises either. :/ Snacking on some Black tea, and a cutie orange 🙂 Have to head to whole foods again lol I FINALLY GOT PAIIIIDDDDD!!!!! haha and have to get chicken again. Seriously can I please get a discount or something?

1pm I left to go to Whole Foods and I stopped at the salad bar and I got SUPER excited. I decided I wanted potatoes, carbs starches ohhhh yeah LEG DAY BABYYY! Then I had fajita chicken (had cheese, yes I’m well aware I need to relax with this cheese kick here)…. and a LIL corn.. here is to prove it. And then I also got 2 pieces of blackened chicken. I only need one, but they looked SOOOOo good today! I was gonna get a almond butter, but even though Ill be burning a shit ton of calories later, I knew that my portion was a little bigger then I’m use too, so it’ll even it out with the snacking.

Mood: FUCKING AWESOME! I could use a power nap, obviously not possible but I could def use one. That or a massage. O M G. I cannot wait to get my taxes finished so I can have $$$ agaain! lol. I am very very excited about training today. Like I said early I’m focusing on squats today, I think I might want to try to go 3 plates on the leg press 🙂 that and lunges, leg exts and calf raises.

I do feel like I am getting skinnier, I JUST took a progress pic today, and it was before I had to pee and I really had to pee lol. regardless I still have a while, but I can only imagine what Im going to look like. I AM S T O K E D!.
I do feel/see that I’m holding water on my thigh under my ass cheek (cellulite), but that should disappear in a couple weeks.. Nothing to get upset about. I also know I looked skinnier when I’m tan and right now I’m pale as FUCK.  :(:( I also feel sexier when Im tan.. :/

Anywho Im bikini shopping today. Just looking around. I found a suit I want for actual summer,and then im checking out ones for the show. Jennifer got back to me and said the white one would be for sale but not the coral which Im super upset about. So ill just have to find something similar.

I love the chain, this is the look I’m going for.  Not to mention gold looks awesome on tanned skin 🙂

For some reason Im digging this. I think it would really “pop”.. But I wouldnt do the strings on the sides, id do a black chain. I listed a picture of all the connectors I can choose from.  L-61c is nice

Obviously have to add a pink one in for good measure lol. I actually really like her connectors, that or I can do smaller diamonds.

See this and a silver chain? Sc-22 Down below \/ Love the zebra And the pink.

So I got home last night at around 530pm

I took Marley out and ate (kind of more then I should have but I was hungry.)

I had 2 LARA BARS (wtf) and some nut butter. Idk what the fuck is wrong with me and the worst part about it?? I went to lay down so I could wait for my mom to get here to watch Marley, we’ll I felt SUPER tired, not normal. Well guess what? I JUST WOKE UP NOW AND ITS 7am! I missed my fucking workout. and i don’t get to workout today because I have class. How fucking shitty. THAT or I go to Xsport the 24/7 gym OR I see what time LA fitness closes at. regardless I’m pissed. and now hungry again.

Sorry guys.

A bikini diet is not a “normal” “diet”, it is very hard to make the eating part a lifestyle because it is so strict. You keep your body fat at such a low % most people can’t handle it.

 

Yes I obviously didn’t write this but these are for people who need help TRANSFORMING their eating habits/ way of life. Yes you will BARELY see any of this (besides the fruit and vegetables), in my diet at all. A bikini comp diet is a little stressful and the closer I get to  my show the more things I have to take out (last 2 weeks NO carbs, no red meat, no pop ext), and last week no salt. Not to mention I gave up all processed foods, so I don’t eat anything that isn’t “whole”.

This is just to be helpful and for you to KNOW that you CAN eat, its just ALL IN MODERATION!!!!
