Nom, Nom, Nom

I thought that I'd share my expenses with everyone just to give an example of how much this Lifestyle, because being a figure competitor is much more than a sport, can cost. Now, this is just what I do. I'll tell you right now, I love food. I make my money as a mixologist/bartender and I work in two high end restaurants and I loooove food. So before I get yelled at for having certain tastes just know up front that I have certain tastes. Besides there is no reason for competition food not to be delicious if it meets your requirements. :)

Anyways, here we go:

3 Large Avocados $5.00
(Savings card saved me $1.26 so total $3.74
Crumbled Feta $5.99
2 Calise Bakery 100% Whole Wheat Deli Slims @ $3.39 $6.78
3 1lb Bison ground meat @ $7.99 $23.97
3lb Fresh Salmon Filet $30.52
Skim milk $1.89
Natty PB $3.59
10 bags of frozen broccoli @1.50ea $15.00
Sharp Cheddar $3.00
Colby Jack $3.00

Total $101.17

This is about a weeks worth of food for me at this "off-season" stage. :)

Trying this Again

Hey there!
I've finally fixed my computer (yay!) and now I can get back to blogging. I have finished my 2010 figure season and it went OK. I am focused now on my shows for next year. I am deciding between the Fitness Atlantic in April or Jr. Nationals in June as my first show of 2011. I have work to do on my lower body and I also want to make sure that I keep a level head and a balanced life. I can become very myopic when focusing on a goal and boy, does it burn me out. It seems as though I have a solid plan in place and I should be able to reach the goals that I have set to satisfy myself because in the long run that is what matters the most. Anyways I hope to stay on top of this. :)
