10 Grapefruits

Yep, that’s what i’ve added to my body since my competition.  They say that’s the average.  I want to be anything but average.  I must say that all of those grapefruits are in my lower half…nothing up top LOL!  I feel great!  My workouts have been killer and my muscles are sore. 

Pre grapefruits

When I look at the picture above I think did I really look like that?  I never see that person in the mirror.  It only sparks the fire to get to 113 by Christmas!  I was 117.4 this morning.


My meal plans are awesome and give me a lot of variety.  I have added some things that I will not buy again once they are out of the kitchen.


This morning I was up at 3a and couldn’t go back to sleep.  Boomer and I laid on the couch and then I ended up dozing off.  I woke up and was sore all over.  I thought about going to sleep again but instead I got on the treadmill.  Not before I had a rice cake with PB and sugar free blueberry jam on it.  3 things that once they are gone I will no longer buy.  I was REALLY craving trail mix and got the rice cakes instead so I felt good at the time 🙂


Why 113?  115 is cool with me but that’s too close to 120.  Once i’m over 120 forget it…I miraculously inch up to 125 somehow.  I won’t lie, I know how.  That’s the good thing about what I have learned.  I KNOW how to eat.  Before Tony I had no clue and couldn’t figure it out.

If you were stranded on a dessert island what 5 foods would you want with you?  Oats, Cake Batter Whey, Blue Chips,  Peanut Butter(Naturally More), and coffee.


Check out this awesome giveaway!



  1. How much does a grapefruit weigh? All of my grapefruits are in my tummy region. Pretty — NOT! My pants are starting to fit once again, and I do not like it.

    Five things: Oikos (any flavor), Chocolate Infusion Amazing Grass SuperFood, chocolate (preferably Newman’s Own Organics Mocha Chocolate), Skippy Natural, Ezekiel bread

    I’m sure that if you were to ask me again in a month my list would change. LOL!

    • 1 grapefruit is equal to 1 lb of fat. You hide your grapefruit very well girly!

I am training for my very first competition which will be in May or June (it is not determined yet). I pray I can do it. The unknows is just scary. I haven’t been below 140 in the past 18 years and got up to over 200 in there somewhere. I am digging deep for my dedication and determination though.
