Feel Good Friday

Despite my week of unobliterated happiness, I felt I needed a little motivational pick-me-up today (and I know some people out there who need one too.) I do not wish women to have power over men; but over themselves. Mary Wollstonecraft All the reasonings of men are not worth one sentiment of women. Voltaire Be intentional about…

The Most Surreal Experience

Let me warn you, this will be a long blog post. So stop reading now if you don’t feel like creeping on my life any further. (But, I mean, you’ve made it this far anyways, so you might as well.) If you’ve been reading my blog posts for the past four months, you’ll know that…

Team Bunny!

Hello everyone! Yesterday was my competition and guess what? I place third place in my division (Novice Fitness Model – Short). I AM THE HAPPIEST GIRL IN THE WHOLE WORLD. I’ll post about my competition when I’m less wiped out – waking up for work was kind of a challenge this morning after being off…

2 More Sleeps

Sorry I’ve been MIA – crazy past few days! I’ve been off work since Tuesday and it’s been a nice vacation – I’d prefer the beach, but hey. On Wednesday, I did my upper body circuit at the gym with my 60 minutes of morning cardio, followed by my last minute grocery shopping and meal…

Six Days

This is my 100th post! Unfortunately, I’m feeling very, very, very under the weather right now. I tried my just egg whites experiment this morning for breakfast and experienced little-to-no stomach pains. Yay! But. When I ate my 1PM meal of 6 egg whites + 1 whole egg…blegh. It took about 40 minutes to set…

Seven Days

I can’t even believe it! I am one week away from my competition! Exactly one week from now, I will have completed my first competition ever and be enjoying a much-needed celebratory Keg dinner with my parents and little sister. I CAN HARDLY WAIT! These past five days have been an experience. I’ve been carb-less…

Food Pornography: My Toronto To Do List

So there’s this (paraphrased) list of restaurants that I’d like to try in this vast metropolis of Toronto. As soon as April 22 hits, you’ll find me spending money I should be saving on food that someone else has prepared with love and passion (instead of the utter disdain I currently share for my egg…

My Lots-of-Cardio-And-No-Carbs Playlist

So I’m about as musically fickle as Kim Kardashian is with professional athletes, so I like to change my playlist (favourites) at the gym fairly often. An insight into my 2-hours-of-cardio-a-day-on-zero-carbs life at the gym. (WARNING: VERY VERY NSFW. LOVE ME SOME INNUENDO AND CURSING.) TEN DAYS. 1. Seek Bromance (Avicii Vocals) – Tim Berg …

For Women Who Are Difficult To Love

How far have you walked for men who’ve never held your feet in their laps? How often have you bartered with bone, only to sell yourself short? Why do you find the unavailable so alluring? Where did it begin? What went wrong? And who made you feel so worthless? If they wanted you, wouldn’t they…

Everyone Loves a Quickie

…don’t you? Quick update! I get two more days of carbs! Hurray! All of you fitness competitors out there truly understand and know the joy that comes from this underappreciated blessing of the sweet potato and the oat. Why do I get two more days of carbs? Well, dearest plum of a reader, my coach…

Dialing In: 2 Weeks!

THIS IS IT. My competition is three weeks away. I cannot even believe it. It seems like my six week mark was just yesterday! Some updates: Booked my hair coloring appointment for the Thursday before. (These roots ain’t stage cute!) Booked my two spray tan sessions at Gold Tan for Thursday and Friday. (I am so…
