Freakin Awesome Friday!!

The day I have been waiting for is finally here. I started my day by waking up at 6:35, very anxious to get things in motion. First thing I did was take my supplements and get ingredients together for the Sweet Potato Muffins. Have a peak.

Ingredients: 8 0z. mashed sweet potato, 2 cups oats, 6 egg whites (1 cup), 1/2 cup splenda, 1 tbsp. vanilla, 1 tbsp. cinnamon, 1 tbsp. pumpkin spice. Gosh, they smell good and I'm sure they taste good too. Can't wait!

I washed up the dishes and started breakfast: 3 egg whites, 4 oz chicken, 1/2 grapefruit while watching some television news. I have packed a few things but still have to pick out clothing, shoes, get a shower so I can pack toiletries, etc. I ran out to grab stuff for my sugar body scurb I'll need before getting my spray tan tonight. The company sells the product but I thought it would be cheaper to make it myself. I found some recipes and made my own Citrus Brown Sugar Scrub. I'll use it twice today to exfoliate and then a baking soda paste to pH balance my skin. This will help the tanner absorb better and quicker.

Ingredients: 1 cup light brown sugar, 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/2 tsp. vitamin E oil, 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice.

Lunch today is a turkey patty with zucchini squash, later I'll have a protein shake and for dinner I'll be carbing down by cutting my normal carb load meal in half. I also am slowing sipping on the half gallon of water today to be finished by 6 o'clock. Should be no problem at all.

It's 3:31 nearly finished packing and fixing my carb meal to take with me on the road. I'll heat it up and eat it later this evening. Not much water left, have to save the last 12oz for my protein shake, which I'll probably drink while traveling.

Now 4:00, wrapping things up. I'll be leaving real soon! Wish me luck and all the best. Thanks to everyone who has followed my progress, encouraging me when I was having a bad day, and helped keep me motivated. I am focused and ready! It's crunch time.
