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…

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….

Catching Fire: Bellwoods Brewery & OddSeoul Toronto

Everyone loves a pop culture reference, amirite?! You’ll get the reference after I begin my tale into the hipster depths of Toronto’s food scene. So it’s off-season which means I get meals of choice/desired meals/”cheat” meals (I don’t like the negative connotation of this word, but now you know what I’m talking about!) My lion-maned…

Once Upon A UFE Workshop

So there were these two blonde girls. One was short and one was tall. They were like, “Yo, let’s go to this UFE Workshop, because I hear you can learn a ton of cool stuff there!” So these two girls went and these two girls DID learn a ton! I had heard good things about…

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,…

I’m-5-Weeks-Out-From-IDFA-Holy-Sh^t

I know I’ve always been talking about my UFE debut these past few posts, but I can’t forget that my main show is coming up too: IDFA World Championships and Pro Universe. I met up with Colleen last weekend and ordered my custom Crystal suit and I. COULD. NOT. BE. MORE. EXCITED. I pick it up…

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….

No Wolverines in Sight: Origin Toronto

What’s cookin’ good-lookin’? Yeah, you. I’m always posting about fitness and my competition journey and experiences but I went to a really cool restaurant yesterday for the first time in forever: Origin Toronto. For the record – not to totally copycat Casey’s food blog series – but: I AM NOT A FOODIE.  Man, hit me…

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…

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…
