10:00 a.m: Snacking on baby carrots.

1:30 p.m: Salad and frittata. I was going to get sushi but MK talked me out of it. This is why it's good to have healthy minded friends.
4:30 p.m: Assorted cheeses and chips at work. Too much cheese. Like I swear I had a whole block by the end of it. Horrible.

9:30 p.m: A small spinach salad at a pub with friends. Also had a few curry fries a friend got. One bite of some cake.

8:00 a.m: Banana

1:00 p.m: Salad.

4:00 p.m: Carrots

5:30 p.m: Some Cheetos and greasy Chinese food at work. Why don't people just order healthy food for take out? Like no one felt good after and regretted the whole thing. Everyone knew it would happen. Just get the good shit from the start!

Wednesday, November 28, 2012


Woke up with a sore throat. I'm blaming jury duty. Sitting in a room full of randoms filled with germs. Bound to happen.

The cops who do the security check before you walk in to the building all have mustaches. I know, it's Movember. They all look like they're from the 70's. They're all like 30. Kinda hot actually. That is all.

8:00 a.m: 2 rice cakes with almond butter and banana. Gotta stop eating this.

1:00 p.m: Food court. Had half a jugo juice protein shake after. Strawberry, banana, orange juice, protein powder. The orange juice was overwhelming. I couldn't finish it.

Exercise (6:30 p.m): 1 hr boxing.

9:00 p.m: Salad. Arugula, goat cheese, 1/2 avocado, fried mushroom and zucchini, S&P, lemon juice, olive oil.

Tuesday, November 27, 2012


Jury duty day two. Napping on a desk is hard. I also feel like I'm in prison. I can't stand listening to others talk but were in close quarters and I can't help it. It's ridiculous how much people can't just pay attention and take direction. Everyone is friggin annoying.

8:00 a.m: 2 rice cakes with almond butter and 1/2 a banana.

11:45 a.m: A cheese scone thing I bought. Not worth it.

1:15 p.m: Same lunch as yesterday. So good, so bad for my wallet.

Exercise (6:00 p.m): 30 min treadmill run

7:15 p.m: Big salad. Arugula, goat cheese, 1/2 avocado, green onion, S&P, olive oil, lemon juice, mushroom and cauliflower fried in coconut oil.

9:00 p.m: Apple with almond butter and honey

Monday, November 26, 2012


I started jury duty today. Booooooring. People are annoying.

7:00 a.m: 2 rice cakes with almond butter

1:15 p.m: Not in my usual hood but I'm in the hood for Karine's. yummmmm!
5:00 p.m: Veggie chips

Exercise (6:00 p.m): 30 min treadmill run

7:00 p.m: Stir fry of random veggies. Few spices. It was ok. Had a banana while it was cooking.

Sunday, November 25, 2012


Once Back to the Future is on, you just have to watch.

11:00 a.m: Pita bread, avocado, tomato, Swiss cheese... Toasted. Good.

2:00 p.m: Stir fry my mom made. Didn't love it.

Did some light boxing with a friend. Not as crazy as usual but hey, broke a sweat.

Too lazy to update. Had Thai later with friends. Really tasty but just felt guilty afterwards. What's it like to eat whatever you want and not think about it?

10:00 a.m: Apple

1:00 p.m: This vegan salad. It was pretty damn good.
5:00 p.m: Some pretzels

10:45 p.m: Late late dinner. Had some cottage cheese. Then fried kale and broccoli in coconut oil. Had egg white and goat cheese scrambled eggs.

Thursday, November 22, 2012


7:00 a.m: 2 rice cakes with almond butter

9-3 p.m: Yea, I was out. Work photo shoot. I never get to go to these things. I do all the work of setting them up but never actually go. It's time I went. There was amazing food there. I may have had a whole almond croissant. AMAZING. Like, there's almond croissants and then there's almond croissants. The italics should make you know how good they are. Fucking good. I had a lot of grapes and raspberries too. Lunch was tasty. Salad, asparagus, piece of toast and grilled squash and stuff. Loved it!
8:00 p.m: cottage cheese. Tabouli.

I can't stop thinking about the delicious croissant from earlier. So good.

Class Photo

I headed over to the Fight Network studios today to take a team photo. It was cool. I'm there, somewhere.

There's also more video that's surfaced of my sparring. I can't watch it sometimes. It looks like catty girls fighting. Uggggh.


7:30 a.m: 2 rice cakes with almond hazelnut butter and a banana

1:30 p.m: Sushi. Sweet potato and avocado rolls with miso soup. MK gave me a bite of her homemade carrot muffin.

I've had a few Hershey's kisses.

I don't want to talk about dinner. I didn't exercise and I had sushi, again. I fell asleep at 9:30.

Monday, November 19, 2012


Busy week ahead.

7:30 a.m: Banana

10:00 a.m: A homemade paleo carrot muffin that mishkebob made. Yum! Also conveniently snacking on baby carrots...

2:30 p.m: 2 rice cakes with almond, hazelnut butter

Weird eating habits today. I swear I'm not starving myself. Believe me, I want food. I'm just in a shitty mood and don't want to go get it. I may as well wait until I am home and eat something healthy.

5:00 p.m: Apple

7:00 p.m: Parsley, 1/2 avocado, sweet potato, tomato, green onion, garlic, lime juice, olive oil, S&P. Pretty damn good.
8:00 p.m: 2 rice cakes with goat cheese and pear. Dessert. I have maxed my rice cake allowance for the day by two.

Sunday, November 18, 2012


 My nose hurts today... I'm assuming it's from getting hit in the face. Fun.

12:00 p.m: Handful of almonds

2:00 p.m: Was at the grocery store. Had a wheatberry and an egg salad. I forgot how good egg salad is. I found a good recipe that involves no mayo - gotta try it.
Exercise (3:30 p.m): 6 km run. Yup... 6! Decided to up the notch finally. Running outside in the cold wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be. I guess today is a good day though.

5:00 p.m: Protein powder and water

5:30 p.m: This turned out well. The following was all in a pan with coconut oil -- sweet potato, zucchini, mushroom, quinoa, kale, chopped spinach, salt and pepper.
8:00 p.m: Banana, some cottage cheese

Can't. Stop. Eating.

Saturday, November 17, 2012


10:00 a.m: Bit of cottage cheese

11:00 a.m: Handful of almonds

Gonna need to hunt for some food today. No groceries.

12:00 p.m: protein bar

Exercise (1:00 p.m): 2.5 hrs boxing. Took some good hits and got a hip bruise. It was a good one though.

4:00 p.m: Protein powder and water

9:00 p.m: Out with friends, again. I had a great nachos to start (my God were they good..), a delicious salad that was greens, pear, goat cheese and pecans with balsamic dressing and well, an amazing dessert.

Friday, November 16, 2012


This time I'm serious. I can barely walk. Every step brings on muscle pain. Tonight's workout is going to hurt, big time.

9:30 a.m: English muffin with fried egg and cheese.

11:00 a.m: Half a homemade pancake MK made. She made it so I trust it had healthy ingredients.

1:00 p.m: A brussels sprouts salad and 2 quinoa cake things. Bought.
I didn't mean for it to look like a face, I swear.
3:30 p.m: Bit of Cheetos. I'm done now and were they that good, really? I would've rather had chocolate.

Exercise (7:30 p.m): 1 hr of boxing. This was a good class. What I learned is the importance of doing it right vs. just hitting hard. You can go into a fight and try to just hurt someone, but none of it will matter if you're not scoring any points. Points are given with proper technique. Anyways, for once I wasn't the weak one in the class. I may not be little miss strong and fit but I listen and do it right. In the end, the skinny chick may be throwing strong blows but the smart one is stealing all the points.

10:00 p.m: Extreme late dinner. Hate that it was that late. You try working out an hour away, getting home and tying to find food. I went out for sushi with friends. It was delicious.

The leg soreness is still not gone.

Thursday, November 15, 2012


Took some snapshots of a fight I was in last Saturday. Can't wait til this Saturday to do it all over again!
Me getting punched in the face.
Me punching back in the face.
Come at me!


I don't even seem to care if it's the weekend anymore because everyday just revolves around boxing and exercise. I'm over it.

I'm snacking on a few crackers that were left over from an event at work last night. Pretty good. When all you eat is mostly vegetables, carbs are amazing.

12:15 p.m: Salad and a falafel thingy. Made with healhtyish ingredients.
3:30 p.m: Half a vanilla, almond ball thing. Size of a timbit.

5:00 p.m: Handful of Doritos. Grilled veggie sandwich with couscous from work.
7:45 p.m: Bit of cottage cheese. Sauteed bok choy and kale in coconut oil with garlic. Amazing. Needed the greens.

Legs are the most sore I've had them in a lonnnnng time. Yesterday's exercises killed me.

9:00 p.m: Protein shake. Coconut milk, frozen banana and strawberries, powder

Wednesday, November 14, 2012


This was on my dresser like ten years ago. Oh man.


I am in no mood to work out tonight. Going to force myself to go.

10:00 a.m: A bagel. It was great and overpriced but, great. Whole wheat bagel, spinach, egg, cheese and I'm sure a lot of butter. 500 calories?
12:15 p.m: What a crazy fatty lunch. Today has been a cheat day for sure. Can we blame the fact that I'm on my period? Please? So I had a side salad and a rice ball. The rice ball was filled with cheesy goodness. Oh man. Won't be getting that again for a long time.
3:15 p.m: Apple, almond butter, honey

5:45 p.m: 2 plain rice cakes

Exercise (6:30 p.m): 45 min exercise. It was tough. We partnered up and at one point had to carry each other on our backs. That was embarrassing. I had like 30 pounds on my partner. Felt bad for her.

9:00 p.m: Arugula and 1/2 avocado with leftover of the stuffing from the dinner last night.

Tuesday, November 13, 2012


7:30 a.m: 2 rice cakes with banana and almond butter

9:30 a.m: Baby carrots

12:15 p.m: Boringest salad of life but whatever, I guess it was healthy. Arugula, boiled brussells sprouts, mushroom. sweet potato. Olive oil/lemon dressing. S&P.

4:00 p.m: Apple

6:45 p.m: The usual dinner. I did have a little bit of cottage cheese while this was being prepared. Red pepper stuffed with black beans, zucchini, corn, mushroom, spinach, tomato... all pan fried in coconut oil. 1/2 an avocado.
9:00 p.m: I made myself what I call dessert. The following went into a food processor... dates, almonds, coconut flakes, cocoa powder, vanilla extract. Amazing. I died. It would've tasted amazing on ice cream but ya, that's not going to happen. I don't even remember the last time I actually bought ice cream at the grocery store. Like over a year, for sure.

Monday, November 12, 2012


8:30 a.m: Small bag of baby carrots

12:00 p.m: At a work related outing  no control over the food. I had a sandwich (heavy on bread) with slice of cheese, tomato and mushrooms. It was ok. Also had a salad made of tomato, bocconcini and I assume olive oil dressing. Now that was good.

2:00 p.m: I had more of the tomato salad.

I'm gonna be starving before the gym tonight. Booooo.

5:00 p.m: 12 grain bagel with cream cheese. Ugh. Bad choices today but little options where I was!

6:00 p.m: A few rice chips :(


... and of course we get weighed today unexpecdetly at the training. Ugh. I was a few pounds more than I expected. I also got my period. F you!

Exercise (7:30 p.m): 1 hr boot camp. Not so bad this time. The other team in boxing is really cocky and it's friggin annoying. Stay humble and Modest. I will forever live by those rules.  

9:00 p.m: Protein bar

10:45 p.m: Protein + Calcium powder and water.

I don't think I had enough protein today.

Sunday, November 11, 2012


In so much pain today I'm calling it a rest day. No working out. No matter what. I may be pushing myself too hard and the last thing I need is an injury.

9:00 a.m: 2 rice cakes with hazelnut butter and banana

2:15 p.m: Protein bar, Toast with 1/2 avocado, slice of Swiss cheese, tomato
3:00 p.m: Potato salad, tabouli, 2 veggie patties.
 5:00 p.m: Quite a hefty bowl of hazelnut gelato. This has been the biggest cheat I've had in a while! It went down nice.

First relaxed day in a while. I feel.... weird.

8:00 p.m: Kale toasted with olive oil and salt. Yum. Bit of cottage cheese.

Saturday, November 10, 2012


Another day. No rest. Back pain.

10:00 a.m: 2 rice cakes with hazelnut butter. Love these butters.

Exercise (11:45 a.m): 15 min shadow boxing in the squash courts alone (fun!), 30 min treadmill run

1:30 p.m: Mixed veggies fried in a pan with coconut oil, garlic and quinoa. Did the trick I suppose. Need groceries.
 Exercise (4:00 p.m): Went sparring in the ring. Loving Saturdays. I had two 3 minute rounds in the ring. I felt good. Something just clicked in me today and I went for it. It was the first time I wasn't getting criticized for what I was doing. The coach was proud of me. More... I want more! Someone fight me! There really is no other sport like boxing. I've had a trainer, I've done boot camps, I've done my own (you've seen it all if you've read this blog since day one!) but nothing compares! It's a  different type of exercise.

6:00 p.m: Protein powder and water

8:00 p.m: This actually turned out delicious. Gotta be the kale. Fried the kale and mushrooms in coconut oil. Boiled 2 eggs and sweet potato. Salt and pepper. Simple balance of veggies, protein, good carb.

Friday, November 9, 2012


I'm tired. There are no rest days in sight. Exercise every friggin day.

7:30 a.m: 1 rice cake with almond butter

1:00 p.m: Salad with a veggie burger patty (no bread). So good.
4:30 p.m: Chips. It's Friday at work.

Exercise (6:30 p.m): 1 hr boxing training (officially) and then almost another hour at the gym boxing with a few fellow teammates/friends. My problem with boxing has become not being able to let go. I'm naturally a very stiff person. I don't dance and move. Hah. Boxing is like F-ing dancing. Anyways, I think I'm getting better. I think I can hit real hard though! That's gotta count for something, no?

9:00 p.m: Protein drink

Passed out the moment I got home. I may have barely eaten today. I mean the calories in the chips I had were probably what my dinner should've been. Ugh.

Thursday, November 8, 2012


7:30 a.m: 2 rice cakes with almond butter

9:30 a.m: A piece of homemade banana bread a co-worker brought. Good.

12:00 p.m: Yep, exact same lunch as yesterday (and the day before...). I'm done now. No more left.

3:30 p.m: Today's cheat is brought to you by chips. Yum. I also had a bunch of baby carrots. Balance?

Exercise (6:30 p.m): 30 min run on treadmill.

Friends came over so I'm glad I managed to get something in.

7:30 p.m: This is what I cook in a rush. Bok choy pan fried in coconut oil with garlic, boiled brussels sprouts and sweet potato.
Oh how appetizing to those of you who actually cook!
9:00 p.m: Grapes

Monday, November 5, 2012

12:15 p.m: Salad with balsamic dressing, goat cheese and veggie frittata, piece of bread.

Missed boot camp. :( Sad about that.

Sunday, November 4, 2012


9:30 a.m: 1 hard boiled egg. Broccoli and sweet potato fried in coconut oil.

Exercise (1:30 p.m): 2 hours at the gym. Did cardio but mostly boxing with the heavy bags. It was amazing. A friend/past co-worker/fellow boxer in training was there with me. She filmed some of it. Uh oh! I'm sure that'll appear somewhere.

3:30 p.m: Protein powder and water.

4:30 p.m: Small bag of those crisy mini rice cake things.

5:30 p.m: Homemade tabouli. Tomato, garlic, wheatberry, green onion, salt and pepper, olive oil, lemon juice

I think I've overdone it with rice cakes today.

Saturday, November 3, 2012

Thursday, November 1, 2012


8:00 a.m: Banana

9:30 a.m: 2 rice cakes with hazelnut butter, 3 of the goat cheese grapes from last night.

We're going old school rollerskating today with work. I failed and didn't dress up. I feel like an idiot but whatever, everything I was trying on looked stupid and I didn't want to feel uggo. You know how it is. There will be temptation unhealthy foods today and not many healthy options. It will be an interesting day. The plan is to work out later and technically, rollerskating is exercise soooooo yea. Take that fat.

10:30 p.m: A small Halloween chocolate Hersheys.

12:30 p.m: Chocolate Vega energizing shake. Protein, fibre, veggies.. what's left!

2:00 p.m onwards: Roller skating is fun. I like it. I also feel like I got exercise so is it ok that I came home and passed out? I was supposed to work out but man, I was tired. Anyways, in terms of food here are the wonderful non healthy options. These were my only options so I couldn't even pick anything else.

3 slices of cheese pizza, 3 cupcakes.

Wow, I barely ate. I guess the calories alone in the lunch made up for that?

I'm also obsessed with this picture I took yesterday.
