Bikini Show Prep Blog #3/ Disney Princess Half Marathon Prep

Posted on February 7, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

I’m calling this the half marathon prep blog because I didn’t do any training!!  I actually decided I should run on Tuesday on the dreadmill, and I got a mile in and did fine.  Then about 1.5 miles in I stopped to get a little water and the top fell off.. then my ipod fell out of my bra and onto the ground, and I almost fell off and it was just all bad so I just called it a day.

But I did buy my plane tickets to Florida and I can’t even tell you how excited I am!!!!  I get to stay with my old roomie and spend the day with her and her son and daughter who is turning one when I’m there!!!!!!!  I get to visit another girlfriend I was super close with who is a few months pregnant and engaged, and staying with one of my best girlfriends who is married.  Man.. things have seriously changed!  After a few days of that, and getting my ass handed to me by Chandler at Elite Strength & Conditioning, I’m going to head to Orlando for the race and more fun with girlies!!

Anyway, on to the Bikini show Prep…

Here was my fitness schedule:

Mon – Chest/ back HEAVY + HIIT Cardio at CATZ

Tues – Legs HEAVY/ abs + steady state cardio

Wed – CATZ

Thurs – Shoulders HEAVY + 90 min yoga

Fri – arms HEAVY/ core + CATZ

Sat – CATZ + 90 min yoga

Sun – rest

Nutrition:

Doing so perfect.  Here’s an idea of what my day looks like in terms of food:

4am – 4egg whites, 1 cup spinach, 1/4 cup oatmeal, 1 tsp natural pb, 1/2 banana

7am – 4 ounces chicken breast, 1 cup roasted veggies/ 1 tsp olive oil, 1/4 sweet potato, 1/4 cup berries

10am – 1/2 scoop protein powder, 1/4 cup oatmeal, 1 tsp natural pb, 1/4 cup berries

workout

1:30pm – 4 ounces tofu, 1 cup broccoli/ cauliflower, 1/4 cup sweet potatoes, 1/4 cup berries

4:30 – 2 egg whites, 1 cup spinach, 1 tbsn FF feta, 1 tspn natural pb

7:30 – coconut/ walnut encrusted chicken, 1 cup roasted veggies, 1 tbspn olive oil

then for a treat I’ll have a couple of small dark chocolate pieces (which HAVE to go very soon) or a liter of flavored seltzer water, which I’ll have to cut out after March I think.

Anyway, I’m hormonal right now, so it makes things worse for sure.  But one day I had a binge on peanut butter.  I used to have a habit of  of doing this.  I used to seriously eat two jars of pb a week.  So I had to stop buying the sugary kind that I liked so much, and switched the the natural kind, which doesn’t do much for me because I don’t love it.  But I guess my body was just craving some kind of sugar or fat or something, and I overloaded.  It was a few hours before CATZ, and I paid for it there because I felt so full and gross, like I was going to puke.  But what’s really bad is how much I beat myself up over it.  It would be one thing if I had these binges, recognized it was bad, and moved on and stopped myself the next time, but instead I give myself such a hard time over it.  I make myself feel terrible.. like I should not be entering this competition because I’m just ruining my chances at winning with these binges.  Then I think, well if I am only making myself feel bad because the competition, that is understandable, because it really is jeopardizing my chances.  But the thing is, contest or no contest, I would still get this upset with myself.

So my goal right now, just for today.  And tomorrow my goal for the day will be to get through the day binge-free.  And the same goes for the next day.  And I’ll let you guys know how it’s going.  I know a lot of women I talk to have this same exact problem.  I just hope we can all find a way to stop, not just binging, but beating ourselves up over it.  It isn’t healthy.  And it’s not healthy to just solve the problem by taking the food out of the house, because if isn’t one thing, I’ll find a way to make it another.

However, on a positive note, I didn’t drink this weekend.  It feels amazing.  Not just the feeling of not being hungover, but not having the feeling of bloatedness or feeling like I completely un-did everything I worked so hard for all week long!  I also think that it shows in the photos as well.  I can tell that circle in  the middle of my lower belly is already going away!  that’s the only difference I’m seeing, but that was the one part of my body that has I’ve been unhappy with for a while now!!

 

So go ahead.. be my first experience with the judges.. Do you see a difference yet?

I really appreciate your help via email on my weight loss efforts.

Now to be the judge: The pictures posted in kind of a random order so I can’t tell which goes first, but I can tell a difference in your quads, abs, & obliques. It is hard to tell if I see a difference in the back. That’s just my opinion.

Thanks for posting a sample of your workouts and dietary intake.

must be a browser issue. thanks for the input!

Yes it was because I was looking on my phone’s browser. Now that I am looking on my computer they are in order. Sorry 🙂

Wow — I took the pictures and didn’t see a differenc but when looking at all three, I clearly can! Great work!
