Happiness is finding balance. Living in the moment, but not forgetting the overall goal. The beauty of #iifym: all things in moderation🌻🍍
Today was my first time lifting weights in the 4 weeks since my injury!
High Protein Yogurt Oatcakes
I found this awesome low calorie high protein recipe for pancakes! Check it out and then try it for yourself. If you’re scared, do it with me - I just made them this morning and well, videotaped myself doing it. Great for breakfast and a eating about 2-3 hrs before you workout for energy. Check my “food bites” section for the cooking video. Here’s the youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CA7s3JyHaps
Makes four servings of three pancakes (3-4”)
- 1 cup instant, one-minute, old fashioned, or steel cut Quaker oats*
- 6 egg whites
- 1 cup fat-free Greek Style yogurt
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1T agave nectar, honey, maple syrup or sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- Put all the ingredients in a blender and puree.
- Coat a hot pancake griddle or frying pan with a little butter, oil or a non-stick spray.
- Pour approximate 1/4 cup of batter to make a 3-4” pancake. Flip over once the batter starts to bubble.
*Quaker Oats are the same nutritionally. They roll the oats thinner to make them faster cooking. So steel cut isn’t better than old fashioned or instant.

it’s funny because i used to hate tea. all types of tea. now i get excited about buying new ones & my big pretty mug💖💖
Yesterday made me 12 weeks away from my next show, BUT my hand is still very sore so I can’t lift weights. I pretty upset about it. All though competing is ‘me against me’ I’m still a very competitive girl & I want to place better than I did in May. The plan was to start training 12 weeks out, come back in October and dominate & right now things are not going my way. I’m a cranky grumpy little brat right now & I just wanna lift!
I’m working on editing the video of my competition experience. It only took forever. Don’t hate me guys! Lol
I officially WILL NOT be competing in August. The x-rays say it’s not broken though, so it’s still on for October 4. #ihateyouboxjumps #ijustwannaliftheavyshit #npc #npcbikini #gym #fitness #healthandfitness #abs #workout #shredded #igfit #fitspo #bodybuilding #ebonyfitness #lifting #physique #tranformation #eatclean #cleaneating #muscleandhealth #bikiniathlete #bikinimodel #bikinicompetitor #bikinicompetition #fitchick #trainlikeagirl #ironheartfitness #bikiniprep #girlswithmuscle #_fitness_bodies
I would just like to say fuck you to everyone who made me feel inadequate growing up and ruining my self esteem for years. You all suck and I’m glad I don’t talk to any of you any more.
It’s not really an off season since I’m ready to compete again, but I’m not working with my trainer till 8 weeks before this show so I’m making up my own workouts. This was today’s
-seated leg press wide
-seated leg press narrow
-weighted step ups w/kick back
-bosu ball squats
3x15 hip abductor triset
4x10 glute kickback machine
-20 high knees between sets
-laying hamstring curls
4x10 hack squat
50 standing calf raises
10 minutes hiit on bicycle
I’m so eager for my next show & it’s probably because of this lil baby that’s no where near finished yet. Any color guesses?? Lol
I literally just heard back from the last judge last night. It’s coming.
There is a freedom waiting for you
On the breezes of the sky
And you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh but my darling what if you fly?
