*LATE POST*

Well this is it…I am on my way to the competition prep and posing clinic workshop in Seattle with Physiques Northwest. Excited to see how things go, what I learn about myself and my potential in my sport over the course of the weekend as well as try to catch up with an old friend and take in some of the sights and sounds of beautiful Seattle while I’m in the area!

Hope you enjoy my highlights and thoughts from the weekend! Feel free to leave a comment below:

This last video features my personal thoughts and outcomes from my trip to Seattle for the Physiques Northwest Competition prep workshop. I received some interesting feedback to take with me for the rest of the 2017 season. No definitive competition plans, but I do know what categories to work towards.

Why I ❤ Lentils!

Original Content: September 18, 2013 at 7:25pm, Revised and Updated

Why I  ❤ Lentils! Check the Nutrition Facts!*Don’t be fooled by the “calories”they carry!* Those calories are ENERGY from the Powerful Plant-based PROTEINS & the important Complex Carb called FIBER that they PACK in every bite! That’s what I call “SuperFood!” #powerfood#fuelyourworkouts #fuelyourlife

Planning to cook some today along with some Salmon. Below are some nutrition facts about Lentils! You gotta ❤ these little guys! If you are looking for alternatives to additional protein in your diet, this is it, along with my other favorite little grainy super food, Quinoa seeds! You can find my rant about them in an older post in this blog!

Lentil Plant:
The lentil is an edible pulse. It is a bushy annual plant of the legume family, grown for its lens-shaped seeds. It is about 40 centimetres tall and the seeds grow in pods, usually with two seeds in each. ~ Wikipedia

Nutrition

My nutrition this week, consisted of low carb (not no carb), high protein meals. Tons of water and natural fat burners, such as caffeine (black coffee), and a treat I put together called Cayenne-Citrus water. Also, fiber-rich foods were incorporated as well as they keep you feeling full and regular 😉 which helps keep your abdomen from bloating.I also continue to take a multi-vitamin as supplementation for any nutrients I may not receive from my diet. The following are pictures of the types of food I ate:
