This weekend we celebrated my Dad’s birthday, my baby sister baby her wedding dress, my nephew got his first hair cut, I got together with friends I haven’t seen in years and stayed up too late and I… Continue reading Meal Prep December 4th 2016

Meal Prep August 21st 2016

We had a Serious About Fitness Camp today so this meal prep was done in high speed mode this morning. I did it all in the oven at the same time to save time. I made one of my fav ‘winter’ meals.

Meal Prep Oct 18th 2015

Well that was a fun weekend! The SAF fall championship show was great. Smaller than the spring show but so fun just the same. I also judged the Physique Canada show for the first time which is more bodybuilding less pageantry. I’ve been judging Saf for a year now and being on the judging panel… Continue reading Meal Prep Oct 18th 2015

When I first started competing I was prescribed a very strict meal plan even during my off season. It wasn’t that I didn’t like the plan itself it was just that I didn’t like to be so restricted.

What I Made Sunday July 20th {Meal Prep}
