The weekend in pictures, plus today's food & workout...

Lots to catch up on! Here are the pics I promised..

From Ariel's 19th Birthday...

Me and Shiloh, then Me & Bethany

Me and Joey... as you can see, my son is astonished that my phone can take "self portraits" with a simple mode-change

The Cupcakes... (thanks to Elana Amsterdam's new Cupcake book! I LOVE!)

Ariel's dessert - Mint chocolate chip ice cream and cupcakes... she couldn't finish! LOL!
But she tried!!

This is my dinner, while everyone was gnoshing on bbq chicken and cupcakes...

Friday night, Bill and I ran some errands, then hit up Chipotle for dinner. Here's the pic I promised...
Figure Competition Diet - Chipotle Salad

Saturday night, Bill and I attended a Scandalesque show. It was fun to dress up and get out of the house. Then Sunday was my usual Food Prep and Counter of Chaos. And Chaos it was! With Graduation on Tuesday, and the party on Wednesday, there was a ton of extra food & stuff that came home with me... and I have to go back on Wednesday for more! Yikes!

I am absolutely loving the protein ice cream recipe! I've tweaked and messed with it, and no matter how I do it, it's awesome! :-) Here's the recipe for my current favorite.

Here's the menu for the week...

Sunday - Chicken sandwiches on Bagel-thins for the family, grilled salmon & steamed veggies for me. FYI, I think that was the last salmon I'm every going to eat. Blek. There's just not enough mustard in the world. I'll stick with cod.
Monday: Grilled chicken salad
Tuesday - Graduation! Kids are every which way with visiting family members, so no "family dinner". I'll be having my usual grilled chicken & steamed veggies. I'll be taking a protein shake with me to the grad, too. It starts at 8 and goes and goes and goes.
Wednesday - Graduation Party! Friends, family, and us :-)  Everyone else will enjoy dips, chips, veggies, burgers, hot dogs, etc... usual picnic foods. I'll have my grilled chicken and raw veggies.
Thursday - My Siblings will be here! :-) They'll all enjoy the Chicken Enchilasagna (see recipe page), while I have my grilled chicken and veggies :-)
Friday - BBQ with the kids & my Sibs! :-) . My food... huge surprise!!! Chicken and veggies! LOL!
Saturday - Leftovers. Chicken & veggies for me.

My workout this morning was a KILLER. It was Chest, Triceps, Shoulders. I am already feeling tight and sore! Wooohooo! I have an option of either doing my cardio or attending Tab's Total Body Conditioning class... I'm kinda thinking cardio. Lol. We'll see how I feel in a bit. Speaking of cardio... I am now officially at 45 minute cardio sessions (was doing 30 min). And I am 14 weeks out from show.

Happy Monday!!

  1. Eating a salad every day gives many health benefits. It is one of the simplest and healthiest food habits that anyone can commit to. Try bbq salads that are easy to make and they bring us a few steps closer to our recommended daily serving of fruit and vegetables.
