Hey everyone! I’ve been wanting to blog for a while now and it’s just been so hard because work is so busy! Anyway, I’m now 15 weeks out and am trying to having fun with my contest prep, so I made what I call my “All-in-One” protein muffins. They contain just the right amount of protein, carbs and healthy fats and are pretty tasting for a healthy snack. They are intended for my meal #4 with my protein shake. Here’s the recipe:
8 egg whites
½ cup of oatmeal
5 tbsp of Reduced Fat Organic Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
1 medium sweet potato (baked)
3 packets of Stevia
Cinnamon and Nutmeg to taste
¼ cup of ground roasted pumpkin seeds
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Mix everything but the pumpkin seeds into bowl. Place into muffin pan (makes 6 muffins 2 x 1.25in) and bake at 325 degrees for 20 min. Then take them out, sprinkle the roasted pumpkin seeds on the top and bake for another 10 minutes. The result is a most nutritionally packed snack that makes you feel like you’re eating like a “normal person,” but you’re not. Lol.
Assuming all ingredients are distributed evenly within each muffin, the macro-nutrient breakdown for EACH is as follows:
I’m hoping to drop some more recipes for you all as the weeks go by. I really want to enjoy this contest prep as much as I can because last time I was absolutely miserable!
GAME PLAN FOR MY LEGS:
My legs used to be one of my strong points. But now I noticed that they shrink rather easily—especially if I try to sprint on the treadmill. I think sprinting outside is definitely different in that you are dealing with different planes and you are using more muscle to drive you forward (whereas the treadmill does it for you). So I’m going keep a careful eye on what I do for cardio. I also want to spend more time breaking the muscle groups down so that it might take me more than one day to work the entire leg. For example, I might work my inner thighs and glutes one day and then the medial and outer part of my quads the next…and then hamstrings on back day…something like that. I really want these bad boys to be as large as possible with little fat.
And that’s it for now. I mentioned in my fit status that I did 2 vlogs and didn’t upload them. One was bad lighting and the other isn’t really relevant anymore. I will try again hopefully soon. Anything you want me to talk about or show you in the next video?
Have a great day folks!
