7:00pm Meal 5
 Dinner plate:

  • 1/3 cup brown rice
  • large salad with tons of veggies
Dessert....Peppermint tea; 1/4 of a large apple-protein pancake (apple, oatmeal, egg whites)  I made for tomorrow's breakfast! I added apple butter (calorie-free) and cinnamon. Yummy, so good! I needed to have stopped at dinner, but making yummy food makes me give in and eat it! No! That is the struggle that I need to overcome...

I feel I have a long way to go to really know how to diet and train for a contest. Although I am happy with the results I am seeing, I feel my tummy, especially my sides need work. By sides, I don't mean my obliques -- those are good -- those pop :) but I carry excess fat on my sides which makes my waist wide :(

I have 52 days left for my competition. I will worry about the details in May. Again, I am doing this to challenge myself, my mind, my body and because I love being fit and healthy! I have a feeling though, that after my first competition I will get in touch with my competitive side ;-P Most importantly though, I will have learned so much along the way. It is not the destination, it is the journey!
