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…

Blonde and Carb-Depleted: Peak Week!

Day 6 of Carb Depletion. …I’m alive. Three whole days of no carbs left. I dream about carbohydrates: cupcakes, a big bowl of oatmeal with natural peanut butter, rice cakes with peanut butter and jam. DROOL. I’d say I’m dying, but I’m drinking more water than most people drink in two weeks. Do you know…

10 Days Out: A Cake-Less, Booze-Less Birthday

TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY. So it only seemed appropriate that I write a post. It is also 10 (well, nine and a half now) days out from Fitness Star World Championships. And it is my second (out of seven) days of carb depletion. Now this is my second competition, so the end is not as…

Six Weeks Out: Fitness Star World Championships 2013

Did you guys miss me or what? I’ve been too busy to blog – gasp – and frankly, not feeling too inspired to do so! So as my super creative blog title says, I am now a little under six weeks out from the Fitness Star World Championships. This time around, training has been different…

A Good Kind of Addiction

So I met with my coach last night at her new training studio, Sweatshop Union. It is gorgeous and awesome – I love it! The owner and founder, Brian, holds ass-kicking classes, including some glute-busting kickboxing classes that I have to check out. (And fitness babe, Justine Munro trains there too sometimes. She is the…

Toronto Pro SuperShow: The Spark That Ignited The Fire…Again

So on Saturday, I went to the Toronto Pro Supershow to cheer on my coach Jill and my friend Stephan in the OPA Provincial Finals. For those of you who don’t know what the Supershow is, it’s a huge three- day multi-event for fitness fanatics. The IFBB and OPA Provincials were held in the lower…

Post-Competition Blues

You read all of these blogs talking about people and their journeys into bodybuilding and healthy living and those are fantastic! You get motivated and inspired and it’s a lovely sense of community in the bodybuilding and competition world. But once the competition is over, the blog posts stop completely or they change gears to…

CSI: Clean Snack Investigation

Hello again, beautiful minions. So my mom went to a breast cancer fundraiser (Ladies Out Laughing) on the weekend and brought back a huge goody bag of treats. In the bag there was a ‘healthy’ bar and I packed in my lunch today and decided to write about it, like I did for the Vega…

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…
