SAMPLE DIET ! ---- NO DAIRY & NO ALCOHOL. PERIOD.



I've received a bunch of messages in regards to my diet and workout routine. I'm here to share my knowledge guys! so here you go...sorry it took me so damn long! Please keep in mind that this is a competition diet so modify as you see fit. :)  ---> I'm loving the way I feel so far! 2 months & 18 days since i started dieting and weight training. :)


 5-6 meals a day & eat every 2-3  hours - burn , burn! your body will feel like a furnace :D

moderate carb day:

breakfast

-5 egg whites (scrambled or boiled) egg beaters, or All Whites
1/2 cup of Oatmeal

Snack:

1 TBSP of Peanut Butter ( Skippy - Natural - No stir ) is the best out there.

Whey Protein

Lunch

6 oz. of Lean red meat, chicken, fish,turkey ...alwys use PAM butter spray.
1 cup of green vegetables,
1/2 cup of Brown Rice or a Small sweet potato

Snack:

hand full of Almonds...( love the salt & vinegar flavored! <3) or TBSP of Peanut butter.

Protein shake or 4 slices of turkey deli meat or any other lean meat etc.

Dinner:

4 oz of lean meat,
1 cup of greens..

6th meal (optional)

Whey protein OR 

can of tuna w/ mustard & dill relish....hehe i know it sounds gross but its not bad! & you can have as many pickles as you want!  I LOVE PICKLES!!

use non - dairy creamer for your coffee

I LIVE FOR CONDIMENTS! for example: Heinz reduced sugar ketchup, mustard, BRAGG Liquid Aminos... its a protein spray ! taste like soy sauce (i seriously couldn't live without this), fake butter spray, spices, worchestire sauce, sugar free raspberry preserves, sugar free syrup, splenda, RAGU - no sugar added - light- sauce,...you've got to be creative.

*Don't touch my food...it has been perfectly weighed and it's the only thing i get to eat! ...it has to be the best or i get reallly pissy! man... back off. :)

A GALLON OF water a day!

MUST READ: Muscle & Fitness - HERS!! awesome magazine! tons of pictures, recipes, inspiring!!! pro bikini girls...fun fun!

**OFF LIMITS*** dairy,alcohol,bread,mayo :(,olive oils,canola, fruit...but you don't have to go all hardcore like me. I know, i know...no fruit ..no diary?! THIS IS A COMPETITION DIET...i'm trying to lose fat here people. My mother isn't too happy w/ my diet hahahha! anyways... I lift weights 5 days a week and cardio 90mins/6 days...if you want to workout that hard - go for it!!   Did you know that a shot of vodka is 100 cals????

BUNLESS BURGERS!! MMmmmmmm

I have another delicious recipe! Omgosh...it's the best din din I've ever had! (on this diet anyway). Ya'll should definitely try this baby!  OK, now break out a pencil & paper and jot this down for your next trip to Wallys:

1. Extra - Lean Meat
2. Montreal Seasoning (by McCormicks, Low Sodium)
3. Worcestershire sauce
4. Purple Onion - ( so sweet & amazing)
5. Minced Garlic  (this too)
6. Head of lettuce or ROMAINE (much more nutrients)

Preheat 2 nonstick skillets over medium high to high heat. 

Place the meat in a bowl and score it into 4 equal sections and form the meat into patties.Season each patty with grill seasoning. Pour a few tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce ( i use lots of it!) into a small dish and using a pastry brush, lightly baste the burgers with sauce. Sautee the garlic and onions for 5 minutes until  tender. Stick your burger in between 2 leafs of romaine lol and there you have it! BUNLESS burgers...I've had people try this who aren't on my diet and they love it.   ENJOY ...props to Bree for the delicious recipe. RawwWWrzz

FIGHTING THE STAIRMASTER...

The STAIRMASTER....I have issues with this piece of machinery. Out of all the cardio machines at the gym...this is the one that has me sweating like a fucking pig. It's like an outer body experience almost...its so brutal that it takes so much out of me. I start to pant after 5 minutes of my climb...my trainer likes that.  I have to be totally prepared before i hit the quick start. I need Pandora turned on with kick ass music, water bottle, low carb monster energy drink, towel, hair secure and tank lifted up over my chest. I like to turn around and watch the sweat drip down my back..lol. i love those mirrors!...have you tried climbing at level 9? didn't think so ! try it. The stairmaster is   the master (duh) at toning the legs, getting rid of the cottage cheese in the thighs & it firms up the booty.  i'm going to love the stairmaster one day. i promise...i'm very close.

The first time I laid eyes on Breean  I thought she was the cutest thing!(she's 5'0) well to be honest my eyes went straight to her tush! WOW....it's amazing! POP!..anyways...she is such a beautiful person inside and out! I really wish ya'll could meet her. She is a hard working lady! &  an amazing cook. I met Bree when i scheduled a training session for my mom (Sept.'09) and Bree asked  if i wanted to join in on the session. She was really patient with my  mom and well I was impressed by her so I signed up for training sessions  & here we are 6 months later...training for a competition.

She emailed me this today:   ( thanks girl!)  Love ya B!

Progress...!

OK, here you go...my first before and after picture! (not really AFTER but my progress so far). Hrmmm so working out 6 days a week & strict dieting does this ehh???  AWESOME.  My abs are looking soo much better!!! Wheee!! those oblique workouts really work. I was kind of shy to post this but fuck it. I'm going to have strut my stuff in a bikini very soon. I've had a lot of random people come up to me lately.... at the gym saying "wow! you look great,, keep it up!", "Your trainer is doing a good job", "I remember when you first walked in here....you look amazing!". I didn't realize how many people had their eyeball on me. It means the world to me...because this is sooooo hard! <3

Low Carb weeks = Whiny Ass

I've been on a low carb diet for a couple of weeks now...meaning i only get a 1/2 cup of oatmeal, 1/2 cup of rice OR  a small sweet potato a day. I've become a whiny ass lately, so i apologize if i annoyed any of you ..shit i annoy myself. This becomes extremely difficult when i have to lift weights so I try to get my 1/2 cup of something  1-2 hrs before my workout. I've become a slight scatter brain at work & thats no good.   I still have fat to lose so that's why we're trying this.  WOW..... I do regret those late night muchos nachos at Taco Bueno years ago. They just want to hold on to my inner thighs... I caught a fever for a few days last week. That face is a combination of low carbs & fever eating my brains.  <3

(last months) CHEAT MEAL @ Gloria's!!!!





Soooo after 5 weeks of strict dieting I was granted a CHEAT MEAL (last month)! I immediately phoned my friends for the big event. I decided on Gloria's Mexican food...omg...instant carb camatose! ;)  I ordered  fajitas w/ refried beans, spanish rice, plantains and a sour cream enchilada. The chips and black bean dip are to die for. Hrmmm...I think i broke out into a sweat!! For dessert we hit up La Duni for a couple of bites of Venezuelen cake & a cup of Cuban Espresso. Cheat meals are necessary to not only emotionally calm your cravings, but to jump start your metabolism and provide extra energy! RawwWrrrr <3
