As for me...

I'm just excited that tomorrow is Friday!

Actually...

That it's...

#RECIPEFRIDAY!


Before I show you a video teaser as to what's coming for tomorrow's recipe...

Be sure to check out my guest post over at treadmill.com where I give my tips on...

Hitting The Weight Room! (And the importance of not sacrificing form for weight!)

SuperFit and Me :)

Now...

Since sharing my recipe for my Protein Packed Pesto using my new Kitchen Aid Food Processor...


Get ready for another recipe using this awesome new kitchen gadget of ours!


Without a doubt...

Both SuperFit and I have been having FUn with it....

Despite being complete newbies at putting something together! (Let's just say, the food processor enables us to experiment like mad scientists lol)

So, until tomorrow...

Enjoy this little teaser!


Okay friends...

I'm off to train now!

I've got to workout my Shoulders, Abs and do a little cardio too!


Bye for now!

WIAW: Mr. FUntastic Takes Over!

Good morning everyone and...

Happy What I Ate Wednesday to you!

Sup.

Today...

I have something special for you because...

My brother...


Mr. FUntastic...


Will be taking over this edition of Jenn's WIAW!


That's right...

My brother has given me all rights to share some of his eats that he's been having over the past little while! (Those of which he' been sharing with me in light of his new venture to healthy cooking and eating!)

By sending me his pictures (I'm slowly turning him into a Foodie lol)...

It's been holding him accountable to his goals....

Older picture

And...

Making his little sista very proud!

I shall treat him to a Robot dance upon his return home from one of his great geological adventures!

I mean...

He's been grocery shopping and filling his fridge with good, wholesome foods...


He's been cooking...


On top of...

Meal planning and prepping all at the same time! (Well, figuratively speaking of course lol)


I must admit...

Every time he calls me (or texts) me for meal ideas, recipes or to ask me questions about what to eat based on his goals...

I am totally, totally excited! (I mean, my big bro is coming to me for advice on cooking, let alone healthy eating and menu planning! The sister who never lifted a finger in the kitchen until just three years ago!)

Making Protein Cupcakes.

Needless to say...

I'm totally proud that my brother, Mr. FUntastic, has been taking it upon himself to...

Cook, eat well and enjoy it all at the same time!


All of that being said...

Here's a look into Mr. FUntastic's eats!

2 eggs with roasted flax seeds and...
Toast with his favourite toppings :)
Dijon Mustard Grain Chicken on the right :)
Recipe.
Oven baked Potato Chips.

And just when you thought the deliciousness ended...

Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes
Ingredients

  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 red and 1/4 orange peppers
  • 1 handful of broccoli
  • 1/2 zucchini
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 tablespoon of Omega Crunch garlic roasted flax seed (amazing stuff!)
  • Cilantro (to taste)
  • 1 chicken breast, diced
  • 1 cup cooked vermicelli noodles
  • Korean BBQ sauce (to taste) (President's Choice Brand <--- if you're into sauces, this is the best! I told my Bro he'd love it and he sure did!)

  2. Add the garlic, cook for a 20-30 seconds
  3. Add vegetables then diced chicken
  4. Add the Korean BBQ sauce once chicken is half cooked
  5. You may add the flax seed at this point or wait until the end
cooking the noodles
  1. In a separate pot, bring water to a boil and add vermicelli noodles (these cook incredibly fast). Be sure not to overcook, otherwise the noodles will disintegrate and turn into mush
  2. Once cooked, drain
Putting it together
  1. Once everything has cooked, add in the vermicelli noodles to your pan and mix it all together
  2. Slice your avocado into chunks and top
  3. Add cilantro to your liking
  4. Bowl and enjoy!
note
  • The most time consuming thing in all of this is the preparation. The rest is easy smeazy :)

Daydreams Fitness Wear Sponsored Athlete: Am I Daydreaming?!

Good morning everyone and...

Happy Tuesday to ya!

As you read this...
I'm probably looking a little like this ;)

Like I mentioned to you the other week...

I have some exciting news to share with you all!!!

Yes.
It's true, I do!

As you know...

I am currently in the midst of preparing myself for the OPA Ontario Championships coming up on June 1, 2013...


And...

I can't wait to step on stage!

Of course...

Like with every competition I've ever participated in...

My suits will be custom made by Joan MacDonald from Daydreams Fitness Wear!

The Master Designer at work!
This was before her studio renos.

Honestly...

I can't believe it's been two years since we've met! (Time sure flies by!)


I mean...

I remember my very first visit when I went to pick out the material and colour for my very first suit and...

Having to try it on too! (I was so nervous, I giggled throughout the entire fitting!)

I had started off with this colour  first but...
I ended up with this one instead for my first competition!
007 and me!
Competition Day.
Suits by Joan.

Now, entering in my third competition season...

I'll be finding myself in yet other amazing creations made by Joan!

And...
I can't wait to pick out some new materials!

I mean...

These will be creations that will be designed to...

Custom FIT me and my body! (Like with every suit she makes for her clients!)

2011 Figure Suit.
IDFA Ottawa-Gatineau Classics
OPA Ottawa Championships
2012 Bikini and Figure Suit.
We called this one the Houdini ;)

And, without a doubt...

I know that whatever it is she will create for me will...

 FIT me just right!

Theme Wear 2012.
I was Pocahontas :)
2012 Serious About Fitness

Having shared all of this with you...

I'm super excited to tell you that...

I am now, officially...

A Daydreams Fitness Wear Sponsored Athlete!!!

Yahooooooooooooo!

Meaning....

I will be wearing one of kind creations made by Joan throughout the year! (The first being at the OPA GNC Live Well Ontario Championships!)

#FUFACES for all!!!

Needless to say...

I am super grateFUl for this amazing opportunity and partnership and...

I can't wait to see what we come up with for my first suit of the season!!!

Don't worry...

I'll keep you all posted with how things go after my first design session! (Coming up on March 26!)

You better believe though...

I'll be Daydreaming about what's to come in the very near FUture!


Until then...

Getting Away!

Good morning everyone and...

Happy Little Things Monday to you!

In keeping with Monday tradition...

Today I get to share with you all the little things I am grateFUl for!

In this week's edition...

I'm going to talk about my most recent getaway with my man!

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram...

You'll know that I spent this past weekend in Montreal with SuperFit!


A few weeks ago...

We decided to go on a mini roadtrip for the night...

Le St. Sulpice!
We got a complimentary upgrade which was totally awesome!
No doubt, we were grateFUl for that!

And...

Enjoy ourselves at the Motorcycle Show! (SuperFit loves motorcycles, more specifically, his own lol)

I want one.

Of course...

It would also give us a chance to...

Enjoy some good food (I brought 3/4 of my meals with me to keep in line with my competition diet! Everything was planned accordingly!)...

Sushi Palace was just minutes away from our hotel!
SuperFit was hesitant to go in at first because the restaurant looked sketchy from the outside but...
I told him he'd have nothing to worry about!
I will admit though, it did look dodgy! 
(This picture is from the inside)
As you can see...
He ended up having some of the best sushi of his life!
This reinforces not judging a book by its cover ;)
Tuna and Salmon Maki Rolls and a Rainbow Roll.
A way into my heart ;)

Enjoy some FUn entertainment...

Montréal en  lumières.

And of course...

Enjoy each other in another city!

I look scared but I swear I'm not lol

I must say...

The time we got to spend together was simply amazing and for that...

I am grateFUl!

Sometimes...

It's nice just to getaway...

Even if only a couple of hours away from home!

Having a Nespresso Machine in our room was awesome!
It didn't make us miss our home espresso whatsoever!

Without a doubt...

Getting away felt great!

Why? Because...

It gave us a chance to step away from our daily routine and...

It gave us a chance to breathe, relax and...

Simply enjoy everything around us! (We've been meaning to get away since we had to cancel our trip to Québec City this past NYE!)

Needless to say...

It was a nice little break!

So, I think it goes without saying that...

For all the things we got to explore and share together...

I am filled with nothing but gratitude!

I love me my SuperFit!

Questions FU You...

What are you grateFUl for today?
When's the last time you went on a roadtrip or getaway?
What did you get up to this weekend?

Oh and just before I go...

I want to send out a special Happy Birthday shout out to my Mama!

Bonne fête Momé!
xoxxo
No...I did not have cake lol

Have a great day friends!
