NPC Pittsburgh | 6 Weeks Out

NPC Pittsburgh | 6 Weeks Out

    This week began a bit rocky. My latest meal plan is designed to fill me out and it’s definitely working.  I was struggling as I watched my weight climb little by little over these past 4 weeks.   Not that any woman likes to gain weight, but I believe my…

Training Outside the Box

Training Outside the Box

Mixing up your training once in awhile can really breath new life into your workouts and your mojo.  If you are sick of the same old thing, it’s likely causing you to  go through the motions rather than getting the most out of your workouts.  How about trying a new…

Finding Your Happiness

Finding Your Happiness

  If you were to strip everything away in your life as you know it, where do you find yourself?  Are you satisfied with the life you are currently living?  Are you passionate about something to the point of doing it for free?  Can you honestly say you are happy?…

What Are You Really Eating?

What Are You Really Eating?

Perhaps you’d enjoy a nice side of antibiotics with your chicken, milk or beef.  Doesn’t sound too tasty does it?   I first heard the term “grass-fed” while watching the film, Food Inc. years ago.  This interesting, yet fear inducing movie gave me an education much…

Game Face On | Full Speed Ahead

Game Face On | Full Speed Ahead

Back from a long weekend of training camp at the Bombshell Headquarters in Florida.  I should say I’ve “recovered” since I truly have not been that sore in a long time.  I thought I pushed myself hard when I trained, but having the coaches take me through several…

Paleo Sautéed Halibut with Caper Relish

Paleo Sautéed Halibut with Caper Relish

I’m baaack!  I’ve been chomping at the bit to try a new recipe and bring you some more food porn.  I’m chickened out for a minute and I’ve eaten more red meat than I care to for awhile.  I’m also pretty tired from being up a lot with the new puppy last night.  Still,…

You’re Nucking Futs!

You’re Nucking Futs!

Finding the right Paleo snack can be rough unless you plan ahead.  Just like I always have hard boiled eggs on hand to grab in a bind, I always have a home made trail mix. I vary it up from time to time.  As it gets low, I throw in whatever new dried fruit or nuts…

Light My Fire

Light My Fire

Someone once said to me, regarding my writing, “I don’t know why anyone would care about anything you have to say.”  A friend or foe, I began to wonder and was completely dumbfounded.  Time stood still as I attempted to process these cruel words.  After all, why would…

Extreme Chocolate Protein Cookies

Yes, I did it again.. caught playing in the tub of protein.  I tried out another recipe over the weekend to try and satiate my wicked sweet tooth.  I came up with these little healthy treats.  Not bad and they pack the chocolately punch that I was looking for….

A Better Way

A Better Way

I constantly babble about Paleo this and Paleo that.  It’s my way of life and its what I believe in when it comes to the foods I consume.  I speak of living a lifestyle free of grain and dairy and how great I feel.  Not that I felt badly before, but I feel amazing…

The Benefits of Green Tea

The Benefits of Green Tea

If you’re like me and you drink a gallon or more of water every day, you know it can get boring, very boring.  Did you know that tea is the second most popular drink in the world?  I thought it was wine, so imagine my surprise.  The simple addition of a few servings…

Paleo Tikka Masala

Paleo Tikka Masala

Found this recipe on Mark’s Daily Apple the other day.  Love Indian dishes and this was no exception.  Let me first say this… yes, you should totally try this out sometime if you are a fan of Indian spices and dishes, but only when you are really in a certain mood….

Making Time for Priorities

Making Time for Priorities

I’ve been considering where I’m headed this year with regards to competition and it appears I’ve made a clear decision for my 2013 path.  I’m a natural born planner and I really need to see things laid out for me so I can visualize what will need to happen to get me…

Paleo Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp over Cauliflower

Paleo Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp over Cauliflower

I made this recipe for the first time and like many I’ve tried, it was good, but no rush to repeat.  Not because we didn’t enjoy it, simply because I HATE peeling shrimp. It totally grosses me out.  Not unlike the act of peeling eggs or potatoes (before going…

Blinded by Inspiration

Blinded by Inspiration

Forcing inspiration is unnatural and can feel a bit like running up an icy slope.  That or banging your head against a wall, in which case will only leave you with a headache and not likely much inspiration in the end.  I often come across many people that I admire…

  As I anxiously prepare mentally for what 2013 will be like for me, I am ever aware of the importance of writing down my goals.  No matter how big or small, I am better able to hold myself accountable when I see in writing exactly the mental path I’m on.  To live…
