I have mentioned a million times...macronutrients !!! But I can also add : whole clean natural foods along with a side of treat sometimes....
This journey for a stage bikini body has and is causing me a lot of conflicting emotions -
- do I want this?
- can I do this?
- why am I doing this?
- is this for me?
- will I do this again?
BUT the number one thing is - can I do this and still have balance in my life???
I think the answer is yes....
Yesterday we went to a museum...I snacked on my allotted food and while everyone else ate at the cafe I went to the car and used my portable oven and heated up my ground turkey and asparagus and I was happy....I was fine sticking to the plan I was okay being the one to sit by myself....
I am a control freak...I love controlling my diet - but what that means is I get to have that grilled chicken instead of ground turkey...that means every once in a while I get that free sample at See's candy...
But can I do this and wear a bikini on stage???
Yes...yes I can...now I need to move forward and keep pumping iron and showing myself, my kids, my family that a balanced bikini is doable!!!
I am me.
I am a women.
I am a mom with a mom belly.
I am a mom that is getting on that stage in 55 days and I am rockin it all the way!!!!!
Because my kids see me as a
And you know what...I am! Because I keep trying..I keep moving forward....
