me too

So all of this dialogue around the Hollywood producer (I don’t even want to say his name as he is already getting way too much pUbLiCitY in the media) and the subset of ‘Men are trash’ tweets have me inspired to write a something I’ve wanted to post for a while now. For all the…

Breaking Bad [Habits on Vacation]

So I just came back from an amazing 9ish days in sunny, perpetually sunny California. I always feel like [coastal SoCal] is a more palm-tree-y version of Canada – everyone is super friendly and pretty health conscious (as opposed to when you’re accosted by trucker hats, 9,000 Waffle Houses and AYCE pizza in south Florida.)…

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…

Do You Even Bikini Prep/I Suck At Blogging: 8 WEEKS OUT

….I have left you like a jar of peanut butter with half a tablespoon left in the bottom that is too little to scoop out with a spoon (anything less than 6 tablespoons is just pointless to consume!) I’m sorry, my lovely followers. I have been insanely busy at work (Excuse #1), attempting a social…

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…

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…

A Little Dose of Positivity

  Sometimes we have down days and we need to dig extra deep to find that positive thinking that will help to lift us up out of our gloomy thoughts. I’ve made a list of things that help me feel better on those Mopey Mondays (FYI: Mopey Mondays can also happen on Tuesday, Wednesday, etc.) …

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…

Did You Miss Me?

Ah, post-competition life. Super depressing, I’ll tell you that much! I wish I could afford to do more competitions but my work life and bank account could not manage any longer. Plus, I’m trying to move out of the old home nest, if you know what I mean! Anyways, my fave Aussie Skye recently wrote…
