SIX WEEKS OUT: UFE Halloween Mayhem

I was bullied into writing a new post by Casey and Justin – SO HERE IT IS. I also figured I should keep with tradition and write a pre-competition post. Blah-zay-blah, I’m six weeks out from my next competition and let’s just say I am feeling fan-freaking-tastic. I have some pretty sick, two-weeks-out type of…

How Could You Be So Shameless?

Get ready folks – it’s Shameless Promotion Day! I’m trying to score some partnerships and gain exposure in the fitness industry – as I have mentioned a hundred times before – so I created a Facebook page for myself and you should go on ‘head with your bad self and LIKE it! LIKE IT. NOW….

Fitness Star World Championships 2013

It’s 5:30AM at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and the sun hasn’t begun to peek over the buildings, but it’s time to get our dehydrated booties up. Daniella and I have been waking up every hour on the hour, worrying about streaking our fresh spray tan. It’s show day, baby! Hair, tan, make-up –  the final steps which…

Fitness Star World Championships: 4 Weeks Out!

Hello sweet peaches! It’s been two weeks since my last post – I don’t want you guys to get bored of my journey since I’ll be posting about my next ones as well! This dial in has been way easier than my last one – what are no carb days? Easy as pie, baby cakes!…

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…

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 …

If You’re A Gym Person

  …I have a question for you. Last night was leg day at the gym. (Thrilling, amirite?!) Normally I work out in the ladies section because I felt more comfortable up there at the beginning of my training. But last night, I thought to myself, “I used to love working out with all the boys!…

Progress is…

Being able to destroy five egg whites and two whole eggs in one sitting and be totally fine with it. (I used to struggle to eat my six egg white – 1/2 cup oats breakfast.)  Now it’s kid stuff! Ramped up my cardio AGAIN – two-45-mins-a-days. YAY. 5 weeks to go. Yikes! I have my…

Wordless Wednesday!

Here are a bunch of progress pictures from the very beginning of my journey (Summer 2011 – the summer I started to weight train in the gym until now!)   Transformation is possible! Patience is key. You can do it! Look how far I’ve come in a mere 4 weeks or so! xx
