Late Night Snacking; The Right Way

Late Night Snacking; The Right Way

It took me 5 years of University, 7 years of late night bartending and 10 pounds of extra weight to realize I had been making some serious food faux-pas. Late night cram sessions, club hopping and other evening antics can all induce the midnight munchies. It’s bound to happen every now and again, but when [...]

The Chronicles of a Wannabe Fitness Model: What Bed Rest Taught Me

The Chronicles of a Wannabe Fitness Model: What Bed Rest Taught Me

Not too long ago I underwent surgery. I’m bummed that it prevented me from competing in my first fitness competition, but I learned a lot about my body. Having never really sustained any serious injury I have never had to rely on other body parts to make up for the ones that weren’t in full [...]

The Chronicles of a Wannabe Fitness Model: Dealing with Road Blocks

Have you ever worked your butt off (literally) for something, then find yourself slamming on the breaks? Sadly, this moment is upon me. After months of hard work, I now find myself in a situation where the doctor is ordering me to bed rest. All my sweat, pain and growth are being interrupted thanks to [...]

The Chronicles of a Wannabe Fitness Model: My Workout Routine

How do you start your week? That’s a pretty vague question, but everyone has a routine whether they realize it or not. Me? I think it’s important to start my work week off relaxed, but my workouts hardcore! Creating a plan keeps you on track. Staying on track gets you results. See where I’m going with this? Last post I [...]

The Chronicles of a Wannabe Fitness Model – Step Two: Personal Training

The Chronicles of a Wannabe Fitness Model – Step Two: Personal Training

I went into my fitness competition training with a pretty open mind and some serious determination. Perhaps my mind was a little too open though. Call me crazy, but there’s a fine line between open-minded and gullible. Sadly, I think I blurred that line. When I began my training I knew I would need a [...]

If You Booze You Lose; Why Drinking and Exercise Do Not Mix!

If You Booze You Lose; Why Drinking and Exercise Do Not Mix!

Yes, I know cracking a beer at the end of a long day or sipping that vintage vino with your dinner sounds like an incredible idea, but is it ruining your workout? Simply put; it sure is. The consumption of alcohol is a prevalent part of North American and European cultures. Whether it’s introduced to [...]

A Risky Sip: The Truth Behind Soft Drinks

A Risky Sip: The Truth Behind Soft Drinks

Mmm…you take a sip of your soft drink and enjoy the childish feeling of bubbles on your tongue. You swallow and follow it up with a blissful lip-smacking “ahhh.” Another sip, another swallow, another can bites the dust. Ten minutes later 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system spiking your blood sugar and insulin levels. [...]

5 Health and Fitness Essentials for 2013

5 Health and Fitness Essentials for 2013

With a New Year come new resolutions. After years of vowing to lose 10 pounds before every spring break, or swearing I wouldn’t drink alcohol for a month (a goal I have yet to achieve) I realized I wasn’t being realistic. By setting a goal like “lose 10 pounds,” what I was really committing to was an entire shift [...]

Surviving as a Meat-free Athlete; How We Veg-heads Get Our Protein

Surviving as a Meat-free Athlete; How We Veg-heads Get Our Protein

I like to refer to myself as a fair-weather vegetarian. Ninety nine percent of the time I have no interest in eating meat but when that one percent kicks up a craving, I don’t feel the need to ignore it. I don’t eat meat as a way of proving a point; my father is a [...]

Pilates or Yoga: What’s best for you?

Hello. My name is Sabrina, and I am a Pilates addict. For the better part of two years I have enjoyed my weekly Pilates sessions with the Reformer and fit-ball. My yogi friends have never understood the appeal it holds for me, nor I for their love of Yoga. So what is it that makes [...]
