Bread and Peanut Butter

It's about 11 PM here and I have now been up since 4:45 AM, worked 12 hours, had a leg workout in the AM and a cardio workout after 915. I've also managed to roast some asparagus, broccoli and make my eggs for tomorrow because its going to be a mission to get out of bed tomorrow for arms and hamstrings haha! 

But I promised myself I would blog every day for the next 9 days for my sanity and to get out some of my last minute emotions and frustrations.

First! a happy moment! look what I found? high protein bread people! Bread. O. M. G. how amazing is this? Apparently they make BAGELS too! so Naturally, I bought a loaf, gave a few slices to my trainer, and the rest is sitting in my freezer for post competition. 


Second: uhmm HELLO HEAVEN.
yes friends that's DARK CHOCOLATE peanut butter with a bit of whey infused in so two tbsp is 10 G of Protein! Alas it too has to wait because of the sugar content in it but can I get a YUM?

Other then That Today has been pretty difficult. Tomorrow is supposed to be carb load up day, but I am holding off until Sunday after that its fish and chicken until Thursday and Friday will be another carb up day...

SOOOOO close but right now it feels so distant. I wish I had one more week to train, but at the same time I want it to be here to morrow so I can just eat my shredded Wheat with Almond milk already Geez lol.

Ok its time for me to finish the Rest of my packing for tomorrow. HOpe you all had a great Thursday! TGIF tommr baby!

  1. I've got to get myself some high-protein bread!  I've tried Dark Chocolate PB before, but a different brand.  There is no whey in it, but it is super delicious.  The brand is called Peanut Butter and Co. and they sell it at Whole Foods.  They also have a White Chocolate Dreams flavour and Cinnamon Swirl.  To DIE for!

  5. Hang in there!  At this point, I think I took things hour by hour.  Keeping myself busy and distracted was a huge help.  Also, if you haven't already, cutting artificial sweeteners may help.  I cut all gum, except Trident because it's made with xylitol which is a natural sweetener, crystal light, sugar free sauces and felt so much better several weeks out from my comp.

    It's all mental!  You are doing amazing!

  6. Oh my goodness, we are SO much alike! I just found the Vermont Peanut Butter too! I got the Monkey Business flavor (banana pb with raisins). It's not too bad in terms of sugar--3g per 2tbsp (and 10g protein!!), but I've tried to stay away from all PB during prep. That being said, I just got 2 jars of PB2 in the mail...so I have included those in my prep :)

  11. Interesting, I didn't really grow up eating much peanut butter at all,  it's not a favourite for me maybe I will try it , especially since I  love bagels.  Have a lovely weekend.

    I love how you're finding joy in little things throughout this process. It's a good attitude to have. I bet Brad would be all over that high-protein bread! - Kat
