First & foremost:¬† Happy Birthday to my girl Nique ūüôā¬† Love you sister ūüôā Muah.

I’ve changed the theme of this website to reflect a simpler journal format.¬† I let go of many clean eating habits and workout practices and I need the change as a way to re-motivate myself to get back on a fitness path.¬† This format seems to an easier way to log my progress (or lack of).¬† Halloween is a few days away which means cheap, cheap junk food and easy, easy access to liquor.¬† How harmful is one handful of popcorn?¬† Or a few bites of banana bread?¬† Those were the questions I asked myself today as I enjoyed every popcorn bite and let the banana bread piece melt in my mouth.

Then I watched today’s episode of Workout… Greg & Erika did a photo shoot (both of them were ripped and¬†body smokin’ hot!) and then famous fitness model Jamie Eason also made a presence in the Sky Sport Gym in Los Angeles to train with Brian.¬† By the end of the show, the guilt of eating that junk settled in the bottom of my stomach.¬†

I have a photo shoot on Saturday.¬† Yeah, this Saturday.¬† I get to spend the day with some of my favorite BC girls for the FitnessLicious Halloween Photo Shoot.¬† That means¬†3 days to step it up a notch and get my body photo ready.¬† Working out, going to yoga, getting my ab sessions in was a challenge this week but nevertheless accomplished.¬† But it’s my eating habits that take the best of me and shoves it in my belly.¬† (Check out my write up on bodybuilding.com on “Things we do everyday, unconsciously, that hinders our fitness progress“)¬†¬†¬† And in order for me to look the best I can be, that means the next 2 days have to be productive.¬† Eating clean, carb depletion, water restriction and cardio/yoga.¬† And just the thought makes me feel anxious…¬† but I know it needs to be done…

WorkIN, FlabOUT!

WorkIN, FlabOUT!

It’s not going to be easy.¬† This¬†pic is a reflection of how hard it is for me right now to push myself to workout never mind¬†eat clean.¬† My strategy?¬† High protein intake (isolate, chicken, fish and soy), and make with lots¬†and lots of natural flavoring with no salt; ¬†only fibrous carbs such as spinach, greens, red/yellow peppers, carrots and broccolli;¬†restrict fluid intake to 1.5 litres or less to improve tone and cardio/yoga to have more definition.¬† Wish me luck.¬† Cuz I definitely know I need it.
