36 Days Out

Happy Friday! Wow, this week has flown by!  I have a lot of energy this morning and you know why?  Yesterday was an high carb day!  A much needed HIGH CARB DAY!  I love the energy these high carb days give me the following day.

Here’s a recap of my week so far:

And that brings us to yesterday.  I had a GREAT day!  I got my suit from my friend yesterday! Yippee!  It is beautiful! I love it!  Of course, the picture doesn’t allow all it’s beauty to shine through.  It is a vibrant shade of purple and the crystals sparkle like diamonds!

Here is a picture of my warm up jacket too. I forgot to have Justin take a picture of me IN it yesterday, so I snapped this one this morning on the hanger.  It turned out great.  I can’t wait to wear it!

Yesterday morning, I ran four miles instead of five because I had to pee so bad!  Evidently I am drinking too much coffee before I run because I went right before I left!  After eating a couple of meals, I headed downstairs and did biceps and triceps.  Justin and I ran some errands and then it was sweet potato time!  Man, I love making sweet potato chips!  My little mandolin is the best kitchen accessory I own when it comes down to sweet potatoes. They just turn out so light and crispy! No oil or anything just thinly sliced sweet potatoes, baked in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. I let them sit on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes and finish crisping up. Then YUMMY!

While I was running yesterday morning, I was already thinking about what I was going to do for my second round of cardio.  That hour seems to be the stinker these days.  I am getting bored with it.  Then I remembered the cardio class that is held every Tuesday and Thursday at my old karate school!  So I went, and it was so fun!!  She killed us last night and before I knew it the hour was over and my cardio was done for the day!  I purchased the 10-class pass which is perfect since I’ll be 5 weeks out from the competition tomorrow!  It was meant to be!

My meals were the usual yesterday:

  • Oats with protein
  • Oats with protein and one slice of gluten free toast
  • Egg Whites with two slices of gluten free toast
  • Ground turkey with mustard and sweet potato chips
  • Ground turkey with mustard and sweet potato chips
  • Ground turkey taco salad
