51 Days Out

I get a lot of questions about what I eat. I decided to put up a picture of post leg day breakfast. It's important to note that the way I eat is specific to the point of prep that I'm in and this will change as I get closer to my show. Anyways, breakfast after smashing legs was 1/3 cup oatmeal (I dont like mushy oatmeal so I only add enough water to cook it in, hence why it's on the plate and not in a bowl), an egg white scrambled, a slice of Ezekiel bread 4:9 low sodium, and a protein shake which is 1 scoop of myofusion cinnamon roll mixed with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk. I added mrs dash fiesta lime seasoning to the eggs and cinnamon to the oatmeal. Total calories was 410 with 39 grams of protein and 47 carbs

Hiatus Return

I apologize that I haven't been on my blog lately, competing for shows is extremely time consuming (not that they aren't worth it). Anyways, I placed 4th in my last show in Ft Wayne called the Midwestern State Championships. Pictures from the weekend are below. One more show this season in Columbus on September 14th!
