So the days seem to be just passing by. I feel like every decision has to be well thought out now. I have the basics.. I hope.. Just picked up the sponges and eye lashes. Planning out the food (most likely all from Whole Foods) to bring along. Need to book nail apt and book hotel for a night, so the whole tanning process won’t get hectic..(I need two-three coats.. one on Friday and one Saturday morning buck fuck early)..ย  and I need to be in Chicago by 8am for a mandatory meeting that obviously everyone rushes too and they just make you sit… whatever lol. I also need to figure out when I am getting my hair cut but I will see Taylor on Thursday to make everything set in stone. Other then that, Ive been looking at myself.. (honestly really trying hard not too because I PICK MYSELF APART).. anywho.. I need to keep the cardio up and really focus on intensity of the workouts now.. Also need to start my detox tea, and a week after that my distilled water. Well see how that all works out.. lol. Not much going on.. just trying to keep myself sane. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you for everyone who leaves such pleasant comments.. I promise I’ll return the favor and keep up with all of you.. I try toย  but I get so cluster fucked I just read them and don’t comment like I should! MORE SO BECAUSE my iphone likes to suck and make itย  difficult to leave a comment from it.. so I say I’ll wait till I get to a computer but never do. ADD.. to the tee.

Day 78 in Pictures..

Today was just another day. Not feeling too good. Looked at myself and I do NOT look like how I should for my contest. Not going to give up thought, I have been training for months and I lost a lot of weight and I look TEN times better then how I looked before I started all this. I may not look how I want now, but I will. This is my lifestyle now, just sucks I put pressure on myself to lose the weight in a timely manner. Ugh.ย  I have to stay positive.ย  Sorry this blog was so short. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Day 70 Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen.

Fuck 70 days already…

and I only think I binged once, and had 3 cheat meals the entire time ๐Ÿ™‚ Such an improvement. I am a little nervous as to what happens after the show, but ever since I got into this whole/ natural cooking (thanks to sweetlyvegan, chocolatecoveredkatie and another blog I am forgetting to mention), you come to realize that you can eat GOOD with a little or no preparation. I will cross that bridge when I get to it, but I have this incredible positive energy that came over me a while ago since dieting/training and I think my life has made great changes and will continue to live that way. I like looking healthy. I like feeling good in clothes. The only time I hate getting up (besides ass crack in the morning), is when I feel fat, or am depressed and that usually ALWAYS occurs when I eat like shit and don’t take care of myself.

Anywho.. sorrry. Ha.

The Food Log

10am Protein Pancake w/ a TBS Agave with 1/4c Muscle Egg (it tastes JUST like chocolate milk).

2pm Lean Ground Turkey, a small piece of chicken, asparagus, and broccoli.

6pm More chicken and asparagus. Don’t judge me. lol (I have actually started to love my chicken with yellow mustard. I am in heaven).

8pm More chicken and veggies. Broccoli this time. So. I’m not THAT boring.

Only 4 meals today??????????? I think I ate some almonds in between meals ๐Ÿ™‚

*Guy interrupted me for a LONG time. No joke this black guy (no it doesn’t matter he was black lol) was STARRING and like awkwardly starring. Like in awe. But I kept avoiding eye contact. He finally came over, and started a huge conversation. He then left, and no joke my next set came back. Then I left after this to go to plyo work and then found me on the stair master to say goodbye. lol.

Day 70 in Pictures..

  1. Protein Pancake in the morning ๐Ÿ™‚ (1/3c oats, 1/3c Muscle egg, 1/3c cottage cheese).
  2. Chicken Asparagus and Broccoli w/ a tad bit more Parmesan then id like lol
  3. Studying for class… please read Principals of Good Eating.
  4. Meal Prep for the week. Only 2 meals for 5 days, other meals are usually liquid.
  5. Marley doing what she does best.
  6. Not healthy. Commercials make products like this seem healthy. It’s not. Look at how many ingredients there are, and see if you can name them. More so pronounce them. Now.. do you know what they are? Exactly. You’re eating shit.

 

Today has been pretty good. I honestly relaxed all day. Between blogging, hw, working out, prepping meals, and finding out information about tanning and how I want my hair and makeup, today has been rather long. On a more positive note, I have seemed to have kept my ass intact as of now. I am going to be extra careful with the many hours of cardio to come ๐Ÿ™‚ Wish me luck โค

Day 41 The more a man knows, the more he forgives.

Happy St. Patty’s Day from Chicago!

1017am Woke up a little bit ago, took Marley to go potty. Waiting for home boy to wake up so we can take the children to the park.. lol.. (our dogs).. Haven;t eaten yet.. Maybe make eggs with ground turkey… I kind of want a carb, but maybe just a fruit..

1pm Took Marley to the park with Duece. They had a great time but it was SUPER fucking hot out.. and I was a little uncomfortable in my jeans.. but whatever..

3pm Lara Bar/ Flaxseed Raw cookies 1 scoop Tuna and ground turkey with some lite sour cream

ย Since it is the weekend I thought Id share about cheat meals and how to go about them.. You know how everyone eats really shitty and then praises themselves when they eat something healthy… like a piece of fruit? Well its like the opposite lol..

Cheat Meals:

To everyone who is dieting, making a lifestyle change, getting healthy:

Have a cheat meal. Meal, not a cheat day. A cheat meal could set you back a day or two at the gym (if blown a little out of proportion), a cheat day will set you back a week. When you think of it like that it usually doesn’t make the food that appealing to me, especially when you kill it in the gym and visualize it not even counting because you ate so much it would take you a whole nother work out to burn it off.. yeah…. no thanks.. I’ll just take an extra scoop of PB please…..

What do I mean by cheat?

A meal once a week (POSSIBLY 2 meals per week if you actually are TRYING to lose weight because that means you are working hard. As long as your moving and burning calories (calories in vs calories out) you’ll see results). I tell my clients to have whatever they want once or twice a week to throw off their bodies. Changes up metabolism, confuses the body makes it work harder to burn it off.. ext. But more importantly we live in a world where all we see is mcdonalds or BK on every damn corner, where when we go out we want to EAT and not constantly worry about what we are putting in our mouths. We want to enjoy food and all of its preparations.. It’s life.. and not all of us can be perfect and eat clean and whole or even want to for that matter.. I would rather my client be 75% healthy and 25% what they pleased (fast food, alcohol, life), then hunching over from cardiac arrest.

What can you have on a cheat meal?

Whatever your little heart desires. Try to keep it under 2000-1500 calories.

*I have gotten extremely sick from eating super clean and then eating something processed or with high amounts of sugar. Please be careful.

Do you need a cheat meal?

No you don’t. But a cheat meal doesn’t have to be something bad. I am not trying to condone mass quanities of donuts to be scarfed down or thinking its okay to waste calories carbs and sugars on an 8oz of Coke… all I am saying is have a meal where you sit down and think “not broccoli and chicken? Ill take it”.. lol

“Because excess is encouraged during cheat meals, they cannot be overused, or you’d never be in a caloric deficit, and thus defeat the purpose of the diet. If you’re one of those incredibly rare human beings with absolutely no desire to cheat, more power to you. But others should incorporate them to provide relief in three ways: psychological, physical and social.”

What are my cheat meals?

My “cheat meals” is actually just a lighter version of my day to day diet.. I may have fruit whenever I want it.. An extra black bean brownie..

Another Tablespoon of Peanut Butter or extra scoop of cashews..

Condiments (Lite sourcream, ketchup, bbq ext)

Guidelines or helpful hints- cheat meal

A MEAL. Carbs fats, desserts, fast food whatever you want.

Try to keep the calorie content down to about 1500.

Try to fill up on protein first.

Drink water.

Know that you will be bloated in the morning.

Know that you MAY become ill after the cheat meal (depending how hard you are dieting or changing your life.. I know that if I ate something high BAD fat or high BAD sugar Id be on the toilet for the rest of the day lol )

Try to work out before hand.

Enjoy yourself (but not too much).

** this has also started binges for me, especially when I was dieting for a bikini competition, so if you are STRONG ENOUGH to discipline yourself to just one meal please go ahead and enjoy yourself.. but if you are having trouble take each day as they come. But when I would go weeks without any carbs and something looked really look at a weak part of time (also known as a trigger) I would eat myself through THOUSANDS OF CALORIES PEOPLE. THOUSANDS!! My mom can’t believe how I am not 200lbs.. Honestly.. I was probably close.. 160.. 165.. probably even heavier. Which is disgusting. And more so disgusting because it was ruining my life..

But this is why I choose my cheat meals to still be organic/ still healthy for me.. I was addicted to sugar and those binges were so bad I couldnt/didnt stop ( AGAIN, remember I have suffered years of eating disorders NOT everyone has..) But for all of my clients I tell them to have a meal once or twice.. and if they didn’t want one that was cool too more power to them.. but usually something comes up (like a sudden dinner, or someone baked you a cupcake IDK W/E), its life.. lol.. but don’t be meticulous about it.. if you have more then you thought you would have..big deal.. start again tomorrow. ๐Ÿ™‚

5pm LA Fitnessย Bi’s and Tri’s

Started with BB Bicep Curls supersetted with Hammer Curls till Fail

40lbs x 12 reps / 15lbs (each hand) x till fail
40lbs x 10reps / 15lbs x till fail

Moved to another cable curl (this time it was lower not a higher bicep curl) with a tricep pushdown.. Forgot the reps on this too, but know that the tricep pushdown I can go REAL heavy with.. Yet my arms are my weakest point.. hmmm

Any who, then did 5 Minutes of Planks

and ended with 30 min on 10-14 (incline). ๐Ÿ™‚

7pm Went to Jewel to get dinner.

730-8pm Made and ate dinner. Steak Corn and Asparagus. See that corn was technically a cheat for me ๐Ÿ™‚ I may also go have some pineapple in a bit ๐Ÿ™‚ Im glad my mom cut it for me because I hate cutting pineapple.

So its about 9pm now.. Laying in bed gathering pictures and updating blogs and sending out emails.. I need to finish and call H&R block tomorrow so I can finally get my taxes done.

I did munch on flaxseed raw cookies (the chocolate flavor bc the ginger ones suck dick) and I think its messing with my stomach… Its ALL fucked up.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ and Ive been getting the heart burn/acid reflux a lot lately.. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I wonder what that means.. I only eat so many things I wonder if I could figure this all out..

Well everyone enjoy your st patricks day!! I am going to relax a bit and get some rest.. pretty tired lately but super excited with how everything is coming along… I don’t think Ill be impatient anymore, give me 2 weeks I will probably completely have my abs in which will be SICK :):)

Just took home first in mens physique. Congrats ๐Ÿ™‚

&& doesn’t she look great???? True inspiration.

Sorry for posting 2 in a day…..I don’t know what is happening.. Even the post said it was posted yesterday and people even commented on it but I still have to publish it again… my apologies :/

Day 38 Avere fiducia, and that I will…

730am Woke up to drama. and BAD hunger pains.

Made a protein shake. Strawberry Banana.

8-830am Sipped the shake while drove to work.

9am Got to work.

905am Found out my “best friend” told the guys I work with, who I hooked up with last summer.

Wouldn’t of been that big of a deal, but you don’t know the guys I work with. Prior to this, I am currently being made fun of for a “relationship” which is just a friendship with another co worker. So this just takes the cake.

Funny part is, I would of never of known my “bff” was talking shit if Mike (who actually thought I was mad at him) texted me with “I tried to get nikki to stop” LMFAO…. didn’t even know what he was talking about.

now I do.

So last night they were all out drinking and I got brought up about how I went with Greg to a party last year.. well. nikki mentioned something about how I hooked up with Greg but we didn’t have sex.. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.. okay well eric goes and texts greg and says what happened with you and marissa, we already have confirmed data so just tell us. Here is the convo below..

So then greg tries and get ahold of me but cant because I was passed out..

So this morning when greg woke up he tried explaining what happened and I already blew up at nikki bc like I said SHE WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO KNEW ANYTHING!!!!!…. so yeah.. well..I go up to eric and I said was it greg or nikki who told you.. he gave me some BULLSHIT story and I just said forget it and walked away…

Well.. matt confirmed that I was brought up nikki mentioned my hook up eric texted greg greg texted me mike was there and tried stopping nikki from being a backstabbingtwofacedbitch. then proceeded to say how I give pics to everyone blahblahblah.. and goes and tries to deny it through text.. I have a screen shot of that as well.. lmfao.. here you go..

 

 

Dude seriously.. wtf. I am done. I don’t need this drama or this extra stress.. its CHILDISH and after everything weve been through together.. After people giving her shit for “sleeping with eric,” or being a “home wrecker” lmfao.. did I go and blurt shit out?????? and to think she was the ONLY one who knew….wow…. but everything happens for a reason and I am glad it happened so I can lose her as a friend. I knew that people thought she was two faced but I never thought she would do it to me.. OLWEEELLLLLLLLLLLLL…I don’t need people like that in my life. I’d forgive her but I don’t need that negativity in my life.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I have enough of my own..

So thatsthat. Deleted all my co workers from facebook.. actually blocked them all.. Not hanging out with anyone from work or actually anyone for that matter.. DONE.

I like my life without D R A M A. well.. as much unnecessary drama as possible. lol..

1249pm TIME IS JUST DRAGGGGINGGG.. I have class tonight and then I think I am going to work out because I didn’t work out yesterday and I binged like I said prior.. I do want to discuss this though..

I have to care that I binged because I am doing a contest.. but for my OWN sake I can’t care (confused?).. Nothing I did was wrong besides not going to the gym (instead I will go today). But for the sole reason of me doing a contest prep anything can be dangerous… Not so much because I am still a little over 2 months away.. but even these healthy spurts of carb cravings I need to be careful.. Besides it was one slip up (only 2 so far in the 38 days SUPER PROUD AGAIN!) and I am also super happy that my cheat meals aren’t really cheat meals.. that they are healthy alternatives. So in a contest prep world I cheated, but for sanity I only overate. Time to move on and live TODAY not what I did last night ๐Ÿ™‚

So I ate my chicken breast, with some BBQ sauce (MAYBE a tablespoon), munching on edamame with detox tea ๐Ÿ™‚

Will eat again around class time.

Have to go to the financial aid office though to turn in another form but so far I think I’m doing good! Should be reimbursed soon for school. They are about to take out another payment on the 20th.. not happy.. I am dipping into my savings for this shit.. that and MY TAXES STILL WONT GET FIXED!!!! ughhhhhh maybe I will call them right now. oh and as I was blocking people from texting me I realized my cell phone was past due 2 days….. alrighty then there goes another $100 ontop of the $250 on my cell phone and the $100 I went randomly shopping with PRIOR to all this happening.. OH yeah and I owe Hertz Rental car $250 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ not happy. Sorry a bit of ranting for the day….

So left work at 430pmย 

5pm got to school, went to financial aids office.
Looks like everything is all verified. I got an email saying they are taking another payment out on the 20th and looks like everything will be finalized on the 21st lol. She said Id get reimbursed and then get remaining money? I don’t know.. Well see.. but I could DEF use that money right now..

Had Steak and broccoli before, and had a chicken breast at around 730pm.

 

930 Went to the gym after getting home and walking Marley.

930-1030 Stairmaster. Holy shit.

1045 1 cup chili with 1 cup ground turkey. a pinch or two low fat mozzarella and 2/3 banana.. (was going to be 1/2 banana but for some reason I am started to get addicted to bananas lol)…. hmmmmm…..

Btw if you ever wanted to know what it looks like to microwave with a non microwavable container.. this is what happens..

‘But that’s it for today… in class we are learning about personality disorders and eating disorders.. its weird hearing about binge eating and so forth.. btw.. it kept coming up that the side effects of bulimia is ruined teeth enamel.. and I actually think that’s true in my case.. they literally bleed ALL the time.. I HATE going to the dentist because I can taste the blood in my mouth ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Idk….. I’m flossing though hopefully it helps :/

Feel good, stomach is still looking pretty ugly to me.. Cant wait to go tanning so I feel a little more confident.. It’s been so nice out lately, makes you wonder what summer is gonna feel like lol.. this is obviously global warming how else is it like 80 everywhere in the world?? haha..

 

Goodnight โค
