If you haven’t grilled pizza, are you even alive?! This perfect-for-summer recipe uses al fresco chicken bacon, chicken, peppers, mozzrella, hummus and sriracha on a grilled flatbread!
Sometimes we just push though prep because our pride says “don’t be a quitter.” It can be a mental battle. How do you know what you should do? This is what my thought process was and I am at peace with my decision.
Before entering, grab a napkin… #DROOLWORTHY My friend Christine I met in Cleveland while we were both competing. We started talking while waiting backstage and quickly realized we have a lot in common. As busy moms, we both like to eat healthy and find yummy food that fits our goals. Christine came up with a […]
As you all know, I just competed at my first National NPC show in Chicago! Junior Nationals was a blast and honestly, the most smooth and comfortable show I have been in to date. It was definitely run by the pros in the industry which makes it enjoyable for us to compete at. No stress. […]
Just whey isolate and egg whites can create some epic mini muscle muffins! Add in other items to fit your macros. Try them gooey on the inside for extra YUM!
What up my fitties?! I have a new obsession for breakfast and I can’t keep this hoarded to myself because the goodness is just too much. Say hello to my little frenh. Cauliproats! originally saw cauliproats floating around on the inter-web-nets and my fellow competitor Christi Lynn Fit shared a quick video of her version. P.S. […]
Whaddup my little fitties?! Today, I wanted to share my experience since I follow a strict bro diet and why I prefer that method for prep vs IIFYM. Before we get to the good stuff, you probably want to check out my last post with guests Brit Brinkman and Tara Balduf. They shared their story of using […]
For part 2: Team Bro, Yo click here. I have to be honest and say that I don’t think competition prep nutrition is “one size fits all.” I want you to understand that what works for someone else, isn’t necessarily what is going to be the best fit for you. You need to work with […]
In honor of my competition training starting again, let’s talk about starting prep! #ohmyquad I’m so ready to destroy this prep and my two shows Keith and I picked: Northcoast Championships and Jr Nats! Currently sitting at 132, no clue what my body fat is and I won’t even check either of those stats again […]
“Don’t you get sick of eating salad for every meal?” “You’re so skinny, you need a burger.” “Girls with muscles are gross.” I’m not kidding. People actually say this shit to me. As I started to change my lifestyle and get more serious about fitness and competing, I also started to be “attacked.” Some of […]
Toddler mom. Police wife. Bikini Competitor. Social Media Manager. Personal Trainer. Blog Author. I think it’s safe to say I wear a lot of hats. Even though I am busy AF, I love it and wouldn’t trade it for the world. It keeps me on my toes, inspired, challenged and fulfilled. If any one of […]
I get soooo many questions about what foods I am eating and how many calories I eat per day to prep for my shows. My trainer, Keith plans all of my nutrition and adjusts accordingly, but I can tell you that over the past year, he has taught me one big lesson: macros > calories. You’ve […]
I recently became aware that people sometimes ask what my husband’s thoughts are about my job as a bikini competitor. “Isn’t it weird for him to see her in front of people in such a small bikini?” I never hear the questions directly but rather trickling down from someone close to me, so I was instantly […]
Say what?! Yes. I compared myself to a drug dealer. Not because I am constantly carrying around baggies of powdered substances and pills, although that is pretty funny, too. There’s a much bigger picture here and I feel like many competitors get blind sided by it. I knew that some competitors develop eating disorders […]
I have been sharing a lot of behind the scenes binging that has been going on in my world now that I am off-season. I like to keep it real. I asked Ryanne, a fellow friend and bikini competitor, to share her story today about how emotionally challenging it can be during the transition to […]
