Today marks the day I begin my competition prep for the fall! I have a few local shows in mind as well as one in the Boston area. I’m looking at the following:
- October 12th INBF – Tarrytown, NY (maybe to get my feet wet and ready for FAP)
- October 26th FAP – Queens, NY
- November 2nd INBF – Massachusetts
- November 16th NPC – Long Island, NY
My prep will be about 12 weeks and I promise to keep it real with all of you. Believe it or not I am human and there will be days where I need some encouragement so any positive words of wisdom are much appreciated. The past two shows I have been about 70% ready for stage but this time around I refuse to get on stage unless I’m at what I feel is my 100%.
Here is a look at whats on the menu for this week:
Last night I bought grapefruits, spinach, snap peas, avocados, quinoa, almond and skim milks, eggs for egg whites/hard boiled eggs, non-fat Greek yogurt, hummus, apples, zucchini and chicken. Also, not pictured since I already had it, I have asparagus, tilapia and kale.
Tonight I will prep my food through Thursday. Normally I prep on Sundays and Wednesdays but I worked til five on Sunday and had an engagement party that night so I was exhaustedddd… (But NO EXCUSES!) I will not let myself or excuses get in the way since I am in competition mode and will give it my all these next 12 weeks!!
So since I am laying it all out there and planning like a champ, I had to figure out how to tackle this weekends out of state Beer-B-Q with my friends from college. Luckily, my college friends are some of the most amazing people in the world and don’t judge me. I already asked to bring my own food (embarrassing, I know, but you get used to it when you want something bad enough) I will be bringing chicken, asparagus, zucchini and turkey burgers since I will be there all day long and eat every 2-3 hours. Sadly, I will have to resist the urge to drink but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a good time. Just being around my friends is good enough for me. I will make sure to keep you posted and will share pictures once I get back!!
