...my pursuit of a better me...

Wednesday, May 12, 2010


So, I took the day off from working out today (so sore); but you know what? I'm not UNBEARABLY sore, which surprises me. Don't get me wrong, I'm stiff, but not wobbly, which I appreciate.

Breakfast: 1/2c cottage cheese. I should've eaten something else too, but I ran out of time.
Snack: carrots.
Lunch: Salad w/cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, lite Caesar yogurt dressing; sandwhich - multi grain bread, deli chicken, tomato slices
Snack: 1/2c cottage cheese. Mmmmmm.... I love it.
Dinner: home-made enchiladas! 3 corn tortillas, cubed steak w/canned chiles, fat free sour cream, salsa verde, chopped tomatoes, chopped onions; skim milk.
Pre-bed snack: Cpt. C suggested I have one serving of Muscle Milk Lite before bed, so I just prepared it, and I'll be drinking it before I lay down.
H20 intake: 42oz. Ugh. Bad bad.

I'm pretty excited for tomorrow; my battle buddy comes back to work after an issue that happened a month ago with his orders. It'll be nice to have him back. Yay Murr! Hope he remembers his PTs, because I'm making him do a WOD with us. Mwuahahahaha!

So yesterday we were all emailing about what kind of bodies, abs, etc. we wish to have one day. For a while now, I've admire Jamie Eason's body (though, I'm a little disappointed to see some of the type of pictures she's done...). When I was deployed, I remember Bifulk telling me "Berge. You could totally look like her if you wanted. Look how athletic, broad shouldered, and short she is? And she's got an amazing body. You could do that." Well, it sticks out in my head. Cpt. C made a good point though, when I sent him a picture of her to show him what I wish for one day. He said she's probably that cut because all she eats is, like, "Coller 1" (for you Tosca Reno followers, you'll know what that is). Which really isn't healthy and she probably doesn't always look so cut; that's her "fitness competition" body. Anyway, I'd love it. Anyway, I'd really like to look similar though. Muscular, like her picture above.




  1. C's right. To prepare for competition they do all kinds of crazy things with their diets and workouts to get down to a very low body fat % and then right after competition it goes back up to their "off-season" body fat %. It's not healthy to have body fat as low as most chicks have for competition or photo shoots for a long period of time.
    And I am totally with you on Jamie Eason. I used to admire her (even though my body type is not anything like hers)until I saw all of her trashy hooker pics. Can't admire a trashy hooker! I wanted to tell you if you go to oxygenmag.com and click on Future of Fitness in the upper right menu it gives you a long list of other regular women who have made fitness a priority in their lives. It has their pictures and bio, etc. and I find them much more admirable that Jamie. And most of them are shorties, good for you, sad for me. Check it out :)

  2. Who you calling short?! :)

    Thanks for the advice. Xo.
