Hallo hallo! It’s my official “off season” and I am BUILDING! I have been eating lotsa cals, lotsa carbs, lifting heavy, and feeling STRONG!

I am really motivated to use true STRENGTH as the foundation of my hypertrophy. I want to LIFT heavier and BE STRONGER. Yes, the most important thing is the aesthetics, but I am very interested ...Continue Reading →
About one cup NOW Pea Protein
splash of egg whites
tiny bit of balsamic vinegar
generous drizzling of olive oil
Here is what I did:
Squish all ingredients together with a spoon, fork, or hands. Knead together for a few minutes. Wrap dough in plastic and allow to sit for at least 30 minutes at room temp. Tear up (or cut up) pieces. There were many pieces that woudn’t stick to each other, so there were ...Continue Reading →
I have been doing a lot of thinking about post competition and reading different things about it. It’s a really big deal. Competitors change their whole life focus for contest prep and take on this new form of dieting and training and LIVING, for this short moment onstage, then once it’s over and it’s traumatic and anti-climactic because it’s like…now what? It’s all over and life is back to “normal”…and what does “normal” mean anymore? How am I supposed to ...Continue Reading →
Wow, I can’t believe the competition is coming so fast! It seems like it has totally taken over my life- seems like I don’t have time for anything anymore! I am enjoying the process, but dang! Still skeptical I can achieve the desired physique in such a short amount of time, but my coach reassures me I’m fine, so I persist.
Notables of today: did my workout, kicked my own butt, WOO! …I did NOT go to jiu jitsu, which is ...Continue Reading →
Hello peeps! The latest update is…I’m still on track! Just staying consistent with nutrition, cardio, resistance training, supplements, etc. I have NEVER eaten this cleanly in ALL MY LIFE! It’s pretty amazing. In one month I have not touched a piece of bread, candy, treat- NOTHING! And, I have adapted well so actually I am not really hungry, feel healthy, and could sustain this for a long time. I have also stayed consistent with the exercise and have not missed ...Continue Reading →
Hey peeps! I want to let you know at least weekly how my figure prep is going. So it’s time! This past week I didn’t lose any weight, which was somewhat concerning to me, as I only have (as of today) 9 weeks and 2 days left until my show! I have stayed consistently clean in my diet and following my trainer’s workout n supplement specifications…but my body seemed pretty much the same. Yesterday I checked in with her though, ...Continue Reading →
PowerBar was kind enough to send me some samples of their new “Protein Drink Mix.” LOL. Basically, protein powder. I guess this is more marketed for folks unfamiliar or intimidated by protein powder? In any case, they sent me vanilla and chocolate varieties. Each scoop contains 20 g protein, 7 g carbs, 2 g fats, and 130 calories. The chocolate one tastes really good, but the vanilla one tastes not-so-hot. Altogether, a fine product.
Here’s some info from their ...
