Sharmaine Diaz  🏆WINNER 2016 Bodybuilding.com 250kChallenge 🥗Fit Food Recipes 💪🏾Motivation & Inspiration 👙NPC Bikini Athlete 👬🏾Mom of 2

Slow change is still change. Over time...it all adds up. @theninanam asked me to post my 1st, 2nd and 12 week pics from my @bodybuildingcom #250kchallenge. So here they are! *

(Now. Let's address the elephant in the room shall we...) I have been MIA!!! I decided to take (and am still taking) a LONG social media vacation. I've allowed myself to be "strong enough" to selfishly focus on myself. I find that my mind is more clear that way. My journey is still a work in progress. It will always be. Currently, I'm learning so much more about myself and I'm allowing myself to be honest about what I want (without influences or anything else). I know I'll get more in to it with you guys later but for now...I just wanted to say hi to all the new challengers and my old IG crew!!! I'M ALIVE AND WELL!!! Hope you all rock this challenge! 🤗

O M G!!!! THIS HONEY GARLIC SHRIMP IS SOOOOOOOO GOOD Y'ALL! *
*
You gotta try this recipe (from TipHero). It fits all my lazy girl requirements of course! Cheap, Fast & Healthy! I'm a garlic whore so I doubled up on what the recipe calls for. And the next batch I make will be without the crushed red peppers (too hot for hubbys taste). Add rice, noodles, pasta or just veggies to complete this meal. Double up on the marinade if you're feelin SAUCY!!! ENJOY! *

Honey Garlic Shrimp *
*

Whisk honey, soy sauce, chili flakes (if using), ginger, and garlic, together in a medium bowl. Set aside. In another medium bowl, add shrimp and olive oil. Season the shrimp with salt and ground pepper and toss to coat. Heat a pan over medium-high heat. Place the shrimp into the pan in an even layer. Cook the shrimp on one side until nicely seared, about 1-2 minutes. Flip the shrimp over and cook for another minute or until they’re just cooked but still a little translucent in the center. Pour in the honey garlic marinade and cook until the shrimp is cooked through, about 1 minute more. If desired, remove the shrimp from pan so they don’t overcook, and reduce the sauce a little to thicken it (keep an eye on the sauce while reducing, the honey makes the sauce easy to burn if you forget about it on the stove). Serve the shrimp with the reduced sauce over brown rice and veggies. Garnish with green onion, if desired.

For the women I love. I walk for you.

Anything is possible.

My aunt had cans of crab meat that she didn't know what to do with. Oh I can take care of that!!!! I whipped up these easy peasy crab cakes and believe me... they're freakin delicious! Add mixed greens to it (like I did) to make a salad or add a bun, with lettuce & tomatoes (like I really wanted to) to make a burger. It's a win either way! Enjoy!
Side Note: I'm not on any strict diet right now. So I'm perfectly fine with keeping some full fats in my meals. This recipe includes regular mayo and I pan fried the cakes in a about a tablespoon or two of olive oil. I'm perfectly fine with that. But there are tons of alternatives online if you want to cut down on some of your calories and fat. You can use a light mayo or Greek yogurt. You can bake your cakes in the oven. There are even cool vegan/vegetarian alternatives. Find what's right for you and share!!! *

Fold your ingredients in to a bowl with the crab meat. Refrigerate for 1 to 3 hours. Use about a 1/2 cup of your crab mixture to make about 4-6 patties. Heat pan on med-high heat with about 1-2 tbsp of oil. Add patties to pan. Fry on each side for about 4 min on each side until they are a nice, crispy golden brown. Serve immediately.

Fall in love with taking care of yourself. Mind, body & spirit.

Don't use these upcoming colder month's as an excuse for you to hibernate and lose sight of your goals! Get to work now so that as soon as spring arrives, there will be a pleasant surprise under that cute chunky sweater! 😉 TAG A FRIEND and get movin'!

Crispy chicken and potato chips! That can never be healthy right?! Wrong!!! This stress-free Sunday dinner is easy. It's toddler friendly (they're so freakin' picky) and oil-free! I also love that it all goes in the oven and cooks at the same time. Done! Add a small salad or veggies to it for a well rounded meal! Enjoy! *

Preheat oven to 400.

Season your chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Set up your "assembly line". 1. Plate of chicken 2. Plate of flour mixed with a little salt & pepper 3. Plate of Eggs & Mustard mixed with a little parsley 4. Bread Crumbs mixed with rest of the parsley 5. Baking Pan sprayed with cooking spray.
Dip your chicken in the flour. Next, dip it in the egg mixture. Next, dip it in the breadcrumbs. Add it to the baking pan. Repeat until all the chicken is coated.
Evenly line potatoes on a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Season with sea salt. Spray top of potatoes with cooking spray.
Add chicken and potatoes to the oven and cook for about 30 min, turning halfway at 15 min.

This protein shake is my JAM right now! It's such a yummy quick option for a meal replacement or snack! Simply dump all it in your blender with 4 or 5 ounces of water. Enjoy!

I almost didn't post last week's progress pics. I thought I'd be looked at as someone who "failed" and "let themselves go" after my competition prep. Thank goodness I got over that! This is me! No flexing. No holding in my stomach to show off flexed abs. Just me. I'm so proud of where I am! Mentally, I'm still a work in progress for sure! I have my moments of doubt and negativity, but I'm getting closer and closer to self love! I am learning to be unashamed of showing my skin so that hopefully more people will love theirs. So many people (including myself) get caught up in the hype of (other people's) "picture perfect progress". In order to help others be comfortable and confident in their process and fitness journey, I look forward to showing you all of me. Some of it will be "IG ready" and some of it will be uncut and raw (y'all no how it goes down on my IG stories 🤣)! It's so important to embrace every part of the journey. Love the skin you're in!
