E-Book Preview

Hi Gang!

Well I’m sick as a dog… errr… sick. Phoebe gets offended when I say that 😉

Unfortunately I couldn’t spend my Mother’s Day with my mom. Of course I feel like an awful daughter, but I don’t want my mom catching this! My voice sounds like a drug addict it’s all coarse and breathy.

So I spent my morning at the keyboard. Working super hard on my e-book and listening to Pandora. I’ve been a little out of sync with the “top hits” it seems. I didn’t know half of them. I’ve always just listened to my own playlists at the gym, but these past 2 weeks I’ve really been into Beastie Boys Pandora radio. That channel is amazing! I love listening to it while doing my cardio. Nothing like pounding on the step mill to Brass Monkey. What’s your favorite Pandora station? 

Anyway, I thought I would share some of my e-book pictures. These are just a few I’ve been playing with so far.


Protein Zucchini Bread


Skinny Minnie Protein Fluff 


Coconut Power Truffles 


Strawberry Salsa *I love this and cannot stop eating it*


Proat Bars (Protein Oat Bars)


Sweet Potato Donuts 

I’ve also considered adding this little gem.


Have you guys heard about the “sexpresso” ? Basically it is an espresso drink that the “fitfam” on Instagram has been requesting at Starbucks. It’s espresso, water, ice, sugar free syrups, all double blended to a frothy low calorie frappe. I have two major issues with this drink. 

  1. Chemical Warfare- it’s just artificial ingredients in a cup. NOT healthy. Just because something is lower in calories doesn’t mean it’s good for you.
  2. The name. One of my biggest pet peeves is when people call espresso, EXPRESSO. I get it that it’s “sex” presso, but it just reinforces the fact that people say it wrong. I’m so Type A, I know.

So I made my own version at home without chemicals, and while it does have more calories (I think 58?), it fills about 2 of these 16 oz mason jars.


No that’s not chocolate on my mouth, I split my lip… 🙁

Hoping to have my E-book done at the end of this month. I had a blast working on it yesterday and see more in my future!

And for those wondering how I’m dealing post-competition. I’ve been struggling. I thought it would be easier to go back to normal life, but I’m having trouble finding purpose in my workouts and food choices. I find this extremely odd since I never had this problem before prep. It was just eat healthy, workout, be healthy! Hoping this is just post-competition blues.

I’m a little over 2 weeks from my last competition and my weight was an issue. From the cheats I was super bloated at all times, and dehydrated too. I was shocked to see I was up 5 lbs, but when I stepped on the scale yesterday morning I was 2 lbs up from my peak week weight. Relief set in because basically it was just water I’ve been holding onto. I know the stage weight is NOT realistic. So being within 2 pounds makes me feel a sense of accomplishment! As long as I stay healthy I’m happy 🙂

    I can not wait to see the Ebook!!! I’ve never bought anyone’s ebook before, bu I’m actually considering buying yours! And I hope your workouts get better!! Never competed, but there are weeks that I have that problem with my workouts. Sometimes I’m just going through the motions, and honestly I’m okay with that. I think those are the weeks where I need a lighter workout (because that’s what ends up happening), but by the next week, I’m going full force at it again! You’ll get there girl, it just may take time, and don’t forget why you do it!
