Get Real

Get Real

      For the record, the above image is definitely not in any way, shape or form, a fitness ideal.  While it may be ideal for being on a stage competing for a figure title, it is not ideal for the everyday, mainstream woman looking to get in shape.  I…

Life After Competition

Life After Competition

If you have ever competed in the sport of bikini, figure or fitness, you may have personally experienced the dreaded post-show blues that can come with the territory.  I know firsthand, because it happened to me.  The same is true for any sport or goal you set, if you…

Am I Corrupting My Daughters?

Am I Corrupting My Daughters?

    The fitness industry can be  extraordinarily vain.  I’m not staking claim to anything new here, it is what it is.  When so much of it revolves around your physical appearance, how can it not?  The good news is, I have come across some of the most down to…

Quiet Your Mind: The Art of Meditation

Quiet Your Mind: The Art of Meditation

Hi, I’m Tiffany and I like to meditate. I feel like a new age hippie saying that!  Perhaps it’s not so much that I like to sit still for any period of time, but I’ve learned it is necessary for my own sanity. I’ve recently taken up meditation and it has helped me…

Jalapeño Mashed Cauliflower

Jalapeño Mashed Cauliflower

  So I was bored….that’s the way most of my trouble begins.  Not this time, I was behaving, but decided to play around with a new recipe for giggles.  Happened to have a head of cauliflower lying around, because, well, doesn’t everyone?  I also had this cheese…

Never Too Late

Never Too Late

A woman recently asked me how long I’ve been weight training and my response was, “for about 20 years.”  Saying it out loud was a bit shocking to me!  She told me that she had only begun her journey a little over a year ago and is now in her early 40’s.   Having…

Butternut Squash & Apple Casserole

Butternut Squash & Apple Casserole

*Here’s an oldie, but goodie to try for as an Easter side dish!  This was a huge hit in my home and I know it will be in yours too!     After a much needed vacation with some very amazing people, I’m back, rejuvenated and STUFFED.  It was nice to be able to tune…

My Advice

My Advice

  I was asked recently, by a girl interested in getting into bikini competition, about any advice I could offer her specific to the sport, etc.  My response came to me promptly and I suddenly felt like it was the advice I personally needed at the time, flowing…

Thigh Gap

Thigh Gap

    Notice anything wacky about the above image?  The poor girl has been digitally hacked up!  This ad was promptly removed after many observed the unnatural editing that appears to have been in an effort to create more of a gap between the young models…

Letting Go

Coming from a background of anorexia, body dysmorphia and figure competition, it’s fair to say that traveling while not on a meal plan can cause me a bit of upset in the mental department.  Truth be told, as far away as I can get from the 12-year-old me that once…

Say What You Mean

Say What You Mean

A recent email led me to this post today.  I will preface this with that fact that I am more than happy, willing and moderately able to help anyone that comes to me for advice when and if possible.  I don’t have all the answers and will never claim to, but if I can…

When the Little Things Mean the Most

When the Little Things Mean the Most

I want to share a story that has really touched and inspired me.  It goes beyond anything I ever thought I would experience (in a gym of all places) and taught me so much about myself.  Like many of you, I attend the gym roughly the same time each day and see lots of…

Time Flies…

Time Flies…

What an exciting weekend!  Not sure where to start, but the most incredible accomplishment, is that my husband and I spent the past several days in Paso Robles celebrating our 14 year wedding anniversary.  It is still really hard for me to believe we’ve been married…
