Avocado Egg Salad

Avocado Egg Salad

Now that I’m in my off-season I can expand my palate a little, which is why I bring you this recipe. Of course it’s still healthy – off-season isn’t a reason to just eat anything and everything carte blanche. I still eat clean and I ensure my meals are balanced. With 13 grams of protein per serving, … Continue reading

Tilapia Tacos

Tilapia Tacos

I figure it’s about time I start posting some recipes. You spoke, and I listened… I can’t count the number of times people have requested more recipes – well, here goes! I decided to call these “Tilapia Tacos” instead of fish tacos. Saying “fish taco” always makes me giggle. Yes, I know, immature. When I was in Edmonton … Continue reading

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

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

VLOG #11 – Immune System Attack

VLOG #11 – Immune System Attack

All these changes have really given my immune system something to think about, which has made me susceptible … Continue reading

Need motivation?

Need motivation?

Figure911 isn’t a transformation blog, there are plenty of those out there. I chose to do this post as a little tribute to some lovely ladies I met over the last couple of months. They are MY motivation. I don’t have a transformation story. I’ve never been “over weight”, I just harboured a muffin top … Continue reading

Remain “on” in your off-season

Remain “on” in your off-season

Just because the competition season is over, doesn’t mean it’s time to throw on the “stretchy pants” and slack off. Being fit and healthy should be your lifestyle, not a part-time job. For many competitors the end of competition season can go one of two ways: Totally off the rails by eating everything you’ve been … Continue reading

PB & Choc Chip Dough Bites

PB & Choc Chip Dough Bites

Are you sitting down? I’m about to change your life… Okay, that’s probably a little extreme. But, seriously, sit down for this… What’s better than PB and chocolate? How about PB, chocolate, honey, and… chickpeas! No, I’m serious. Hey, if we can make black bean brownies, then damnit, we’re using chickpeas! And, get this, NO … Continue reading
