I’m now 10 weeks out from my figure/physique* competition (*the jury’s still out on which category I’ll be competing in). The diet is tightening up (and so am I), and it’s all good.
What you eat during contest prep takes some thought and planning if you want to succeed. Thankfully, I am married to a patient and understanding man who used to train as a bodybuilder and fully supports what I am doing. He’s sporty himself, although he’s an endurance athlete (read his training partner’s blog for a peek into their world) so he’s all about the carbs. As his training partner Richard once said, we’re a little like Jack Spratt and his wife in that sense (although the opposite way round).
Today is Easter Sunday, traditionally a day of chocolate. Chocolate eggs, mini eggs, easter egg hunts, chocolate eggs with extra chocolates inside, chocolate eggs with fondant inside. None of which are on my radar. That’s fine by me – I haven’t eaten chocolate or sweets in a while now and I honestly don’t miss it (I never was a sweet chocolate person; very dark bitter chocolate is more my thing).
So what did my husband present me with after I’d hidden a few little eggs around the house for him and then given him his chocolate egg?
The perfect Easter present for any figure competitor in training.
Actual eggs. The real deal. Full of protein and all-round complete meal-in-a-shell wonder. I thought you might like to see.
(If you can’t read it, it says “Easter bunny…honest!”) It should be pointed out my husband is a scientist, not a creative.
Thank you, husband ❤ xxx
And here are the pretty eggs back in the kitchen with their cousins: more eggs, some hardboiled eggs, and some cartons of egg whites. PROTEIN FTW 😉
Are you following a diet or nutrition plan? What did your friends, family or significant other get you for Easter?
Aaaand…what’s your favourite way to eat EGGS? 😀
