Tuesday - quick update

It's Tuesday... just a few more days of prep and then The Show!

Did you catch my recipe post this morning? My awesome sponsor, Champion Nutrition USA, sent me protein powder that smells waaaay too good to be true! Super chocolaty! The hubby had it as a shake and gave it the thumbs up, then I made the protein pancake stack and that, too, got a big thumbs up. And didn't he do awesome on the photos?? My hubby is a genius! :-D   I couldn't get over what a difference the light box made!

No lifting this morning. Cardio 1 is complete - 40 minutes on the stairs. I know I've said it before, but man... LL Cool J's Time for War is rocking my cardio sessions. I love it! I've got another 40 minutes tonight after work. The doubles must be done. It's long, monotonous, but necessary. So far the knees are holding up. I swap over to the elliptical if my knee is bothering me (less impact), but so far so good! Not bad for having knee surgery 8 months ago! :-)  They said I'd never run again... nobody said anything about flying!

Breakfast done, snack is an hour away (boo), and I'm pluggin' away at my To-Do list. It's going to be one of those days, but I'm gonna roll with it.

Quick shout out to Norma Bilbo of Bilbo Baggs - My suit is stunning, and I'm thrilled with it. Thanks, Norma!!

  1. The picture did look great! That light box was a pretty smart idea (not surprising).

    So excited for you and the competition!!! Wish I could be there!

  2. Hey Chelle...the pic looks great! I may try that protein powder you mentioned. Do they offer any discount coupons online that you know of? :)

    Good luck with the upcoming competition. Can you post a pic of your suit or is that something you'll reveal after?
