My Breakfast + Training

July 13, 2014

Who doesn’t love breakfast?! Growing up… I never ate eggs, sausage, ham, pancakes, etc. Crazy right?! My parents were born into a family of farmers in Vietnam, so when they migrated to the states, they grew their own crops. We typically had a traditional Asian cuisine for breakfast that consisted of white jasmine rice, some type of protein (normally chicken or fish), and lots of fresh picked vegetables for breakfast. So what do I eat now?!

EGGS

I cannot imagine my breakfasts without eggs now. I eat at least 5 eggs a day (4 egg whites and 1 whole egg). That’s at least 3 dozen a week o_o. I love pairing it with rice cakes ^_^. Kind of reminds me of bagels and lox without the cheese and bread lol. I eat this up until 3 days out from my fitness competition only because eggs contain sodium and I want to make sure I don’t bloat. Speaking of fitness competition… time to do my cardio!!! I am about 2 weeks out from my next national show (USAs) and to stay lean, I do about 45 minutes of cardio 6x a week, followed by weight training. I love doing 15.0 incline walking at 3.0-3.6 speed for about 25 minutes, then immediately jump on the stairmaster for the remaining 20 minutes. Gets me sweating like crazy! Happy training!

I finally did it!!! I started my blog!!! I’ve been wanting to start this blog for quite sometime now but just didn’t know where to start. This blog/website stuff is no joke. If you guys are new to this like I am, well the first step is to purchase a domain name. Hosting comes next and then the fun stuff… choosing a theme (dressing your site). The theme I have now is temporary until THE ONE comes to me. But just a quick intro, health and fitness is my absolute PASSION. If any of you know me, I can go on and on about health and fitness hehe ^_^ The GOOD NEWS is… I want to share with the world! Stay tuned… lots of exciting information coming your way! Stay focused and never give up! Happy training ^_^
