So it finally happened. I stopped losing weight and inches. Which translates to “bye carbs” because I am still waiting on abs to appear in time for my first NPC Bikini Competition.
I could tell you it’s totally fine and I’m totally fine and it’s awesome and I’m handling it like a champ. But that would be a LIE.
It sucks. I didn’t even realize how beneficial the very small, very pure, amount of carbs I was eating was…until they were gone.
It’s not so much that I feel hungry. I just feel empty. And weak. And like I need to eat at least my body weight in cheezits. Or goldfish. Or white cheddar cheese puffs. Or Doritos (are you sensing a trend here, people?).
Forget 24 days to go.
96 more meals to go.
48 portions of fish to go.
72 servings of spinach to go.
144 more eggs to go…but only the whites.
And then I’m indulging in a cheese-flavored-chip-and-cracker buffet. I want a bowl of each. And not like a cereal sized bowl. A popcorn sized bowl. OF EACH.
I can’t wait (except I can and I will because I am not going to blow all this effort with only 24 days to go).
This week sucks. I’m tired. I’m hungry. But I’m following my meal plan and cutting calories because I REALLY wanna lose 3 pounds. Not a Mean Girls reference. More like a “I bought a Halloween costume that’s awesome AF but I can’t wear it unless my stomach looks like Maria Menounos from E news (because that’s what I’m watching)”. Which, BY THE WAY, they’re featuring super fit women over 40. LIKE SERIOUSLY?! I am already suuuuper irritated and then I have to see how great Halle Barry looks at 50. HINT BETTER THAN ME AT 29!
And to be honest, even if I do lose 3 pounds my stomach is NOT going to look like Maria’s by Halloween…but it’s not a competition, right? It’s about being a better you, and competing against the person in the mirror and blah blah blah; all true but I don’t wanna hear it right now.
So I’ll just be over here watching Rob & Chyna (spoiler alert: it is ghetto and lameeeee), sitting on my heating pad because my glutes are on FIRE and feeling sorry for myself.
Daily Meal Plan
Oh and in case you want to be as miserable as me, you can start by following my meal plan for this week, instead of eating goldfish and poptarts (to be honest though, I would highly recommend the poptarts):
Natural Whey chocolate protein shake (with 1 c. Water and 1 c. Almond milk)
2 hard boiled eggs (but only eat 1 yolk)
Chobani nonfat plain Greek yoghurt
1 tablespoon vanilla whey powder
1/3 c. strawberries
2 grilled chicken tenderloins
1/2 c. Brown rice (made with salt free chicken broth)
