Hey everyone! This month has been pretty hectic for me! With the spring comes the commencement of the bodybuilding competitive season. Team 1st Phorm just wrapped up a big promotional shoot! I had the opportunity to work with the amazing Alex Ardenti, a leading photographer in the fitness industry. You will see all kinds of new and exciting things on the website from this shoot. On top of that, I have been working as an assistant to my own nutrition coach, Kit Kitson of In Shape Nutrition. He has asked me to work as a posing coach and mentor for his figure and bikini competitors. It has been a blast and it has been rewarding to help other girls take the stage with confidence for their first time and walk away champions! I also recently got back from a quick trip up north to my native land, Canada. I had a great time visiting with friends and family. Next week, Brett and I are headed to Mexico for a nice 6 day getaway right before we begin our prep for the 2010 IFBB North American Championships September 3rd. It will be nice to lounge in the sun for a week right before contest prep begins. It will be a long prep this year for both of us, as we take advantage of a full 15 weeks of dieting and training for the show. We both want to improve our physiques from last year and we feel like devoting the time and hard work to preparing for this competition will give us the results we desire!
Obviously, I do not expect to continue to diet during my Mexico trip- even I need a break from fish and rice. Generally speaking though, I do continue to follow a very strict clean eating plan when I travel. On my recent trip to Canada, I carried clean food onto the plane with me and ate a meal in between changing planes. It is really quite simple to eat clean wherever you go; you just have to be prepared. Here are some secrets that I use in order to eat clean when I travel:
Here are some super portable clean snacks that you can carry in your bag anywhere you go for a clean meal anytime!
