Mini Review – Quest White Chocolate Raspberry

20160818_145910

Can you tell that I’m still in vacation bliss over here? Best part about getting away is you have more time and willingness to try new things so right before we left, I picked up couple of more bars that I have not tried yet. Quest Nutrition is one of the most popular brands out there and with so many different flavors of protein bars, everyone is always obsessing about them. My experience with Quest hasn’t been that great just because I don’t see what the big deal is. But I decided to pick up White Chocolate Raspberry bar and […]

White Pass, WA – Summer 2016

20160821_095711

How is it almost September?? I feel like just the other day I was trying to plan out my summer but with training and preparing for my first competition, the time completely flew by. My boyfriend’s family has a cabin over at White Pass, WA so we usually head over there for 4th of July weekend but with all the promos that I recently have and training schedule, we had to postpone it until August. And it finally arrived! I love White Pass. It is about 3 and half hours away from where we live so every time we drive […]

REVIEW – CytoSport Muscle Milk Light Snack Vanilla Toffee Crunch

20160722_161443

  You know that feeling you get when you find something at grocery store and you want to eat it right then and there and then just end up dropping everything on the floor and totally doing just that? No? Oh maybe it’s just me. Kidding. But seriously, this is what I though with this bar – CytoSport Muscle Milk Light Snack Vanilla Toffee Crunch is advertised to be the “lighter” version with less calories than their standard bar with amazing taste for just a snack to keep your hunger at bay. Maybe they just didn’t plan on dealing with someone who’s hunger […]

Off Season – Mental F*Ups and Going on Vacation

off

When I first started my off season, or reverse dieting, I was determined to keep my macros accurate and post every week about my numbers to keep myself accountable. But I have never expected to F the whole thing up like I did. Just as I wrote before, I expected this to be hard, to have some mental battles.. I have done my research, I though I was ready for what was to come. But oh how I was wrong. The days have become a torture. Overeating and having inconsistent macros by eating tons of peanut butter, cereal and chocolate […]

REVIEW – Arctic Zero Chocolate Peanut Butter

7

Guys, I gave in. After snooping around Instagram for months on #contestprep, I have finally bought my own pint of Arctic Zero. Unfortunately, they are a little pricey just like the rest of the protein and “fit” products but I decided to splurge in hopes that it will satisfy my sweet tooth and put a stop to some binges that I’ve been having. The store that I was in didn’t really have a lot of flavors so I decided to go with Chocolate Peanut Butter, the “creamy” edition. I got myself some 1 carb whipped cream earlier so was pretty […]

Off Season – Week 2

off

One thing that I was definitely proud of was that I did enough research to know that after competitions, it is extremely hard for competitors to transition into reverse dieting and off season. Oh how naive I was to think that I was strong enough to do that as well. Week 2 has been absolutely tough and it was 99% mental. It is not that I didn’t have a system and protocol that I was supposed to follow but it was more of a lost feeling where my cravings took over me. So I binged. It was the “mindless munching” where […]

REVIEW – Cold Stone Mud Pie Mojo

6

Let’s talk ice cream for a second. Do you eat it for breakfast, as a dessert, for fun, on weddings, on funerals? Can really eat it anytime. I actually discovered my new love for ice cream as a pre-workout (not as extreme as having it at funerals but I think that’s the way I want to go). Totally got some Cold Stone and had awesome energy for some serious gains. Because SUGAR. Hell yes. Cold Stone introduced their Signature Creations awhile back for us, uncreative folks. When I walk into the store, I want everything and I am the one […]

Off Season – Week 1

off

After being on competition prep for 5 months, I knew that I had to go into my off season with a plan and make sure that I don’t blow up. There are so many stories out there about competitors who suffered from metabolic damage, depression and put on 20-30 pounds within few weeks of their show because they were all done. With me being someone who needs a goal, I knew that I had to have a plan. I am so glad to have a coach who I trust and is able to provide me with knowledge that I need […]

QUICK REVIEW – P28 Foods Caramel Turtle Cashew Spread

2

Caramel Turtles… Mmmm… That just makes my mouth water but when you’re into fitness, you gotta find some ways to make that at least A LITTLE BIT healthy. Just a little hehe Therefore – CARAMEL TURTLE CASHEW SPREAD by P28 Foods. Yup. Total orgasm.

Victory Natural Northwest Results

ere

This past weekend I have competed in my second bikini competition which was the 2016 NANBF Victory Natural Northwest show. Since my first one was a month ago, I decided to do this one few months ago to gain more experience on one prep. My expectations for this show were to get more lean than the previous show and come in a lot more tighter. With only 4 weeks, I was able to do just that but I think the biggest change was the prep itself since I switched to flexible dieting during my peak week for my first show. So […]
