Hello Eating Clean!

Having your food prepped is the best thing ever. Hit the gym in the morning, eat a quick breakfast, hop in the shower, get ready for work, and then instead of having to think about what you are going to prepare for your meals that day you just grab those perfectly prepackaged meals in your fancy tupperware and hit the road! However, it is amazing how much food a figure competitor really eats....egg whites, chicken, turkey, veggies! No wonder I have seen so many praises about Costco on other competitor's blogs. I did my first shopping trip at Costco since really buckling down and bought myself egg whites, celery, and chicken in bulk! I am sure I will be making SEVERAL more trips as I get further into prep!

Tomorrow I have a killer workout planned. Jen told me to bring my tunes because I am going to be LOTS of reps...most of the exercises are aiming for 3 sets of 25-30 reps with no more than 45 seconds in between. I recruited a friend to do the workout with me, so I am hoping we can just bust it out back and forth within the allotted 45 seconds. If I didn't love the girl so much, I might end up turning into a drill sergeant yelling at her to push it harder and move faster so we can keep our rest periods down! :) But, she was kind enough to do cardio with me today and I don't want to scare her away. I will let you know how I feel after the workout, hopefully I don't look like this....
Ok, I highly doubt I will look like this, but I will probably be just as exhausted as this poor guy!


  1. If these magazines that claim their abdominal exercise workout is the best, was indeed the best core workout than I would not be receiving as many emails as I am asking to explain the age old quest of eliminating belly fat.

  2. Montanna, "abs are made in the kitchen." We can never out train our diets! However, sometimes I wish we could ;)

  3. I have no idea why I didn't start shopping at Costco sooner!! It's amazing how easy it makes food shopping & prep!
