Why I LOVE Costco

Why I LOVE Costco

No, I am not getting any kickbacks for this post. I am simply sharing how I shop, and why I shop, at Costco. I truly believe they stock their shelves with bodybuilders in mind. The boy and I are lucky enough to live around the corner from a Costco and shop there weekly. Yep, it’s … Continue reading

Taking Care of Business

Taking Care of Business

When I was working in Palau, Micronesia, I tore my shoulder. Long story short: I was on a skip boat and we were loading stuff onto the big boat. I was holding onto a rope off the side of the big boat to try to steady the boats in 5 metre high waves. Well, the … Continue reading

At home training circuit

At home training circuit

My little red rocket (yes, that's what I call my red Hyundai Accent) is ill. I think we fried his insides when we jumped started him with a cruiser. He couldn't take the power of a Crown Vic and short circuited. Which means I have not been able to drive him the last few days, … Continue reading

My battles with adult acne – an update

My battles with adult acne – an update

Many of you have contacted me personally to share your stories and advice regarding your battles with acne, and I thank you. As you know, since the end of competition season my immune system has been under attack, which resulted in a lovely break out of cystic acne on my forehead, jaw line, neck… you … Continue reading

Off Season Update

Off Season Update

I'm not a big New Year resolution-er, which is why I didn't post about resolutions and how to stick to them, blah blah blah. I used to make resolutions to drink more water, but then realized how stupid that actually is, and stopped. Now, I just drink water all year round. Duh! If you are … Continue reading

Muscle Art

Muscle Art

This is a different sort of post. It’s a plea for information. Nowadays, tattoos aren’t as taboo as they once were – it was pretty obvious judging by the amount of ink I saw at competitions this past season. But, while tatts are more accepted publicly, there is still some resistance among the competitive bodybuilding … Continue reading

VLOG #11 – Immune System Attack

VLOG #11 – Immune System Attack

Since competing in my last show I’ve been going through a lot of changes – additions to my meal phase, change in work schedule, change in training intensity, and a new tattoo (post on that coming soon!) All these changes have really given my immune system something to think about, which has made me susceptible … Continue reading

Toma-wha’?

Toma-wha’?

Okay, I’ll get this out of the way right off the top: I, Lisa Moskaluk, have never had a V8. It’s true, never. And, before you ask, no I do not walk lop-sided. Alright, I probably just aged myself there… Why do I share this information, I can hear you ask? Well, I was recently … Continue reading

D.O.M.S – A necessary evil?

D.O.M.S – A necessary evil?

Ahh, that “I worked out so frickin’ hard my muscles are screaming” post-workout feeling… It’s called “D.O.M.S.” and it’s a love-hate relationship. So, just what the heck is D.O.M.S.? And, is it a necessary evil to build muscle? The “What” D.O.M.S. stands for Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, which is basically that achy muscle feeling you … Continue reading
