'Skinny Legs' and Costco Runs

Hello my lovely followers! I've been a slacker and haven't been blogging as much as I have wanted to. My sister and I went to Boise this weekend to visit our Aunt Tracey, we had a blast!! I had today off of work so I decided to do a Costco run since we had no food at home due to my husband being home alone from Wednesday to Sunday.. you know how that goes. Anyways, I am a frequent Costco shopper, I find myself there at least once a week. As I am on my competition diet my choices are limited, but none the less they still have just about EVERYTHING that I need. Here are some of my staples (and until mid October, about the only things) that I get from Costco. 
1. Canned Green Beans
2. Celery
3. Asparagus
4. Organic Spinach
5. Eggs (5 dozen)
6. Raspberries
7. Blueberries
8. Chicken Breast
9. Avocados
10. Tilapia
11. C4 (Pre-workout)

      So I posted a picture on instagram earlier today and kept getting skinny leg comments,It must just be a really great angle because ironically my legs are probably the biggest and bulkiest they have been in a while! They are also the strongest they have ever been. I've gained a lot of lean muscle mass during this competition prep which is awesome! I just can't wait for them to shred a little more so you can actually see the muscles I've been working my butt off for! One of my friends asked me to post about how I got my 'skinny legs' so I'm going to share one of my leg workouts! I did this leg workout once a week for two weeks at the beginning of my prep and it really helped build a lot of muscle. Granted I also worked my glutes and hamstrings a lot as well but that's for another day! (Ps when an exercise says 'superset' that means you alternate between that one and the other one that says superset. If you don't know what some of these exercises are google them, they are super easy to find!)

Quads
  • Leg Extensions 3x15
  • Smith Machine Squats 4x20 (superset)
  • Body Weight Squats 4x20 (superset)
  • Step-ups 3x12
  • Single leg squats 3x12

Good Luck!!
