a quick peek

..into female body image (or maybe just mine??) & our I-N-S-A-N-E journey from Tuesday –> Wednesday Tuesday: *lemonading like a mutha* — at the gym, at work, at the grocery store, on the train, walking the doggo — then Wednesday comes along and you’re like: hello i am the spud spawn of mr and mrs…

3 Things

Guess who’s back? [Why wouldn’t she be?] …Name that song and you will have my respect forever! Instead of livestreaming my thoughts in 140 characters on Twitter, I’m going to ease back into blogging, because I truly enjoy writing (thank you Sheldon for the inspiration!) and there is way too much ‘bad’ writing on the…

I Miss Blogging: The Anti-Saga

Wow. I have not blogged in probably a year and a bit. I remember the days I would blog WEEKLY (and sometimes even multiple times a week!) Which leads me to wonder what content I was posting, lol. Quick recap of my life over the past ~year: I’ve been busy. Last time I blogged I…

I REALLY Suck At Blogging: An Epic

I knoooooooow it’s been a while. To be honest, life has been cray. Reasons why I haven’t been blogging: Got a new job at Target Canada (aw ya) which I absolutely love. I’ve become one of those people who enjoys going to work and talking about it after work. (Now to just work around that…

3 Month Countdown: UFE Showdown

So I have an app on my phone that counts down to my competition (as I mentioned in my last post) and today it alerted me that it’s… 3 MONTHS UNTIL UFE SHOWDOWN. Holy hell, right? Most people would start their “cut” at the 12-weeks-out mark but my sexy coaches gave me a 14-week bikini…

Hey Guys, Learn Your MANners

So it’s 10 days into 2014 and I’m already feeling the need for another Festivus so I can air my grievances. (That’s a good sign for the year to come, right?!) Anyways. Remember when I expressed my feelings (vented, ranted, bitched…whatever) about dating as a fitness competitor? Via some R&D (Research and Development, to my…

The Year Ahead: My Jay-Cutler-Size To Do List (No 22-Inch Arms Though)

Happy New Year everyone! I can’t believe it’s already 2014..I remember drawing pictures of what I thought the year 2000  was going to be like and here we are in two thousand and freaking FOURTEEN. (I see none of my predicted hovercrafts and metallic clothing.  The closest we have is Lady Gaga’s attire and the…

Happy Festivus!

If you know me, you know I am the self-proclaimed female George Costanza. I also am trying to post QUALITY posts over QUANTITY posts (shoutout to my main heezy, Casey Palmer, for that sweet blog advice.) Anyways. TODAY IS FESTIVUS. HAPPY FESTIVUS TO ALL!  Now – for the main event: the Airing of [my] Grievances….

All I Want For Christmas Is Upper Body Gains

…Buuuut you guys can’t give those to me so here’s a list of things I actually do want for Christmas. (This post is mainly for my Mom since she asked me for a list this morning. #multitasking) I will be expecting these things in my mailbox/inbox/under my Christmas tree/couriered to my work/gym. I will also…

Dating Diary Of A Fitness Competitor

…Okay, so it won’t be a diary, but I guess I could share a few…anecdotes. So I’m essentially 10 months into this fitness adventure and I have learned that dating as a (committed? Insane? Dedicated?) fitness competitor is different than when I was a “normal” person. Yeah you still have your jerks, players, boring guys,…

Double Whammy: Liebster Award

I’ve been nominated not once, not twice, but THRICE for the ever-so-prestigious WordPress Liebster Award. You all know how much I love to talk about myself (“Damn confident women!”, all you men and women haters are saying. ) You can read my First Liebster Award post here. Alrighty – blah zay blah – you know…

No, I Don’t Want A Fat-Bottomed Female For My Birthday

…Thanks, but no thanks. But I will tell you what I do need for my birthday! (My shopping has become out of control, so I will call upon the interwebs to hopefully answer my prayers!) Resistance Cables (Medium & Heavy). My Therabands are too easy and I need these for backstage competition prep!  Need. Pull-Up/Chin-Up Bar. I need to practice…
