This is a long overdue review because a couple of weeks ago @tissssshh sent me a couple @doughbardoughnuts Crispy Bars to try and (no exaggeration) these are SO. GOOD. One bar is 250 calories. 15P 29C 9F and 9 fiber.
Somewhat “higher in calories” than I typically would have for a bar (I like the 180-220 range) but in my opinion it’s “worth” the calories. The bar is a perfect combination of light, crispy, and chewy textures with the sweet, not overpowering, taste of vanilla. In my opinion these blow the Enlighted brand version out of the water. The 9g of fiber helps keep you full and satisfied.
I am hoping to try the chocolate chip flavor (my husband ate that one) soon and wish they sold these in stores!

Meal prep can appear time consuming, tedious or boring but it doesn’t have to be! I have been “prepping” my meals for years now and it has only gotten easier as time goes on. Here are my top 5 tips…
1.) Cook and prepare in bulk! I cannot stress this enough. Cooking your lean proteins, carbs and veggies in large quantities saves time and makes it easier to put together meals. My favorite way to cook chicken is in a crock pot. It’s so easy and all you have to do is plug it in and turn it on. My favorite way to cook rice is in a rice cooker. Once again, plug it in and turn it on. Veggies can be washed, chopped and eaten raw or you can season them then bake or sauté them in large quantities.
2.) Start simple! Honestly, most of my meals are very simple when it comes to “ingredients” and methods of preparation. Of course you can follow more complicated recipes with multiple ingredients and more “steps” in preparation but if you’re just starting out and weary of “everything” involved don’t over complicate things and stick to simple, fool proof preparations.
3.) Prep meals and foods you ENJOY and that you will EAT! You can meal prep your heart out but unless you actually cook foods you LIKE and you will LOOK FORWARD to eating your efforts will be wasted. Don’t like fish, then don’t cook it! Don’t like kale, don’t bother! LOVE sweet and sour chicken, awesome, make it! Think about what you might order at a restaurant and find ways to re-create that food at home but in a portion, calorie controlled manner.
4.) Have fun with spices, sauces and seasonings and get creative! My favorite way to make “boring” foods less bland is to try different ways to flavor things. Some of my favorite ways to season are with garlic, rosemary, Italian, onion powder, cumin, and sea salt. A little bit of soy sauce, olive oil, low sugar barbeque sauce, or low sugar teriyaki go a long way.

I had such high hopes for this flavor... While the flavor itself wasn’t bad it just... lacked. It seriously had so much potential to. The base seemed like a basic vanilla and the graham cracker “pieces” were lacking. I was HOPING for more buttery, graham cracker mix-ins but I could barely taste what little pieces were swirled in and I would have loved more actual, sizeable chunks. I also got ZERO taste of marshmallow. Not sure if the base was supposed to taste like marshmallow or not?
Overall a 6/10.
If you’re looking at the 320 flavors I would hands down pick peanut butter cup or salted caramel over s’mores.

Last night I tried the @cocoabarinajar peanut butter cup spread and wow, this might be a new favorite. I can best describe it as nut butter meets fudge meets semi-melted chocolate bar in terms of texture. Taste wise it’s rich and chocolatey with just a tiny hint of peanut butter.
I tried it melted on top of my oatmeal but I am already thinking of other ways to use it… toast, rice cakes, pancakes, straight outta the jar (wait what?). But seriously, this stuff is good and the ingredient list is super simple (Peanuts, Coconut Butter, Turbinado Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Powder, Carob Powder, Stevia, and Sea Salt). Also, if you’re into tracking macros (or not) it’s more “macro friendly” than regular peanut butter at 6.8g F 12g C and 5.2g P.

I am not affiliated with this company but my soul sister @tissssshh has a discount code “TISSSSSHH” that will save you some money if you order J
Happy Friday!

Well since I’m stuck in the re-booking line going on hour two at the Amsterdam airport (yay for cancelled flights) I thought I’d review the @buffbake protein sandwich cookies. 💪🏼 I choose the snickerdoodle flavor and bought this item with my own dollars.
One packet has four sandwich cookies each with a crunchy, almost wafer-like cookie base and then with a smear of buff bake almond butter spread between the cookies.

Texture wise the cookie is very crunchy and dry. I’m not the biggest fan of crunchier cookies so I wasn’t wowed by the cookie. The inside is meh with a thin spread of almond butter.
I did enjoy the taste though! Flavor wise the cookie itself reminds me of the biscoff cookies you get on airplanes, it’s pretty and I get a strong cinnamon, sugar taste out of it.
Overall, this was a 7/10 for me.

Saturday night we planned to go see Wonder (eipc fail, it was sold out) and for a movie snack (turned regular snack cause no movie) I tried a new flavor (new to me) of 💪🏼🍿 @iconmeals protein popcorn. This one is their Freedom Popcorn which is a combination of blueberry, vanilla and strawberry 🇺🇸. One serving (a generous 60g) is 151 calories 10P 21.5C 3F.
To be honest, this flavor was good but it’s not as good as their dark chocolate sea salt. I am not the biggest “fruit” dessert person so I should have seen this coming. However, the vanilla was a nice change between the blueberry and strawberry and mixed well. It kind of had a “fruit pie” taste as opposed to a more “fruity pebble” taste.
Maybe the maple flavor will be next…

Throwback to when I did my first (and only) professional fitness photo shoot 🤷🏼‍♀️ I’m not a fitness model... I’m actually far from it and I don’t desire to be a fitness model. I like being me, the nearly 30 avid gym goer working a 9-5 who prioritizes sleep over a long beauty routine. Don’t get me wrong, I like getting dolled up but on the daily I’m lucky if I even remember to use my concealer.
I did this shoot to get some quality content for my website and I was super out of my element. I’m very critical of how I look in photos and tend to be quick to notice and point out my flaws rather than appreciate the quality of the photo.
But stepping out of your element in order to gain experience, learn new things, meet new people and better yourself is such a rewarding experience in life. Challenge yourself to do so.
Thanks @davestudio616 for such a fun experience! 💪🏼⚾️ #naturalbikini #naturalbikinicompetitor #bikinicompetitor #bikiniprep #girlswholift #ifpabikini #ifpabikinipro #ngabikini #ngabikinipro #npcbikini #onlinecoach #competitionprep #bikiniprepcoach #jcdSTRONG

Continuing my resolution to #eatmorecookies this morning is the peanut butter flavored @questnutrition protein cookie 🍪💪🍪Out of all three flavors this one was my least favorite, but only because it’s lack of chocolate (fair enough) and I am also not the biggest peanut butter cookie person… However I know it was one of @junkbanter favorite though! It’s got a solid peanut butter flavored base with tiny little peanut bits (too small to be called chunks) throughout. The top almost has a slightly sugary “grit” to it, but not enough to be overwhelming. Out of all three flavors though I will say this one has the best texture, very dense and rich.
This one is a 8/10 for me.

Waving 👋🏼 to the last two stage looks thinking 🧐😍 hello to whats about to come for this year!

I have big changes planned in regards to not only my physique (gainz) but also my stage presence in it's entirety for my fall season. I am thinking new suit color (different than these two!), new jewlery, nails, hair, posing... the whole shabang! One thing that is NOT changing will be wearing another @angelcompetitionbikinis on stage. The quality of their suits and their amazing customer service will have me coming back again for my third season in a row. Who can guess what color I am thinking 💙💜? Picking the RIGHT suit for YOUR body (color, stone layout, connnectors, bottom cut, ect.) is so, so important in the bikini division so if you're someone who is looking to buy their first suit and would like some guidance or suggestions please DM me! I love helping and giving advice.

I haven’t reviewed @halotopcreamery in quite a while so here’s my two cents on the gingerbread house flava... I actually was pretty underwhelmed on this flavor. I’m pretty indifferent to gingerbread in general and I thought this was subpar compared to the other seasonal Pumpkin Pie flavor. The base seemed a little “watered” down and the consistency was icier than normal. I didn’t get an overwhelming feel of ginger. Not sure if there was some product quality sacrificed during shipping but something was off. The cookie “chunks” were also more like tiny crumbs and I would have loved more actual, sizeable pieces. Overall a 7/10.
Of the higher calorie line of @halotopcreamery Cookie Dough, Red Velvet and Cinnamon Roll are still my top 3.

Continuing my resolution to #eatmorecookies dis here is my review on the chocolate chip flavored @questnutrition protein cookie 🍪💪🏼 Out of all three flavors this one is my favorite by far. It’s got a nice combination of vanilla and butter with a hint of the classic brown sugar dough base. One thing that Quest always nails is their chunks (chips) and this cookie did not disappoint.
Although you can taste a little bit of artificial sweetener (it’s a protein cookie what do you expect?) the artificial taste isn’t strong enough for me to dislike it. If you’re comparing it to a Subway cookie (the OG) or Nestle Tollhouse it won’t stack up but if you’re looking for something sweet that won’t spike your blood sugar this is a great option.
This one is a 9/10 for me.

Life’s too short not to #eatmorecookies . But seriously, @questnutrition is launching a new product this year and I was fortunate enough to be sent all three flavors (peanut butter, chocolate chip and double chocolate chip) of their #proteincookie .
Guys, these are GOOD . Like, really good . Each cookie is 240-250 calories, so they’re less calories than some of the current popular brands like Lenny & Larrys, Buff Bake and MyCookie by ProSupps . Although they’re higher in fat than what I have seen out there (16-17g) they’re lower in carbs (19-20g). I’ve had all three flavors and I’ll be reviewing all three flavors separately. First up, double chocolate ! This cookie is very, very chocolaty (duh), but not too sweet and overwhelmingly sugary and it has more of a dark chocolate, rich base as opposed to a milk chocolate base. There are also plenty of chunks of chocolate. It’s very soft but not dense or chewy. It reminds me of a hybrid brownie/cookie . The higher fat content actually helped me keep full between meals as opposed to the higher carb, “lower” fat options you see in some of the other protein cookies . Def. a solid 8.5/10 !

Let me know if you try these !

Okay. This stuff is good, like really good. Dare I say it’s right up there with muddy buddies and chocolate covered pretzels? 🍿🍫 @iconmeals protein popcorn! One serving (a generous 60g) is 151 calories 10P 21.5C 3F.
There’s a ton of other flavors (I’m wanting to try maple next) but for the sake of my $$$ I kept it to one bag, which is on sale for $8.99 at @vitaminshoppe !

Whose had? Do I need the other flavors?

In honor of hump day... Summer 2015 vs. Fall 2016. In between these photos I went from 111lbs to 127lbs in 11 months where I ate A LOT and trained HARD. Lunges, hip thrusts, squats, deadlifts. Absolutely no cardio. Those 11 months of growth, focus and training showed when I dieted back down to 106lbs in the photo on the right. While it isn’t “about that number in the scale” you can clearly see I had more muscle and much better conditioning.

Ladies, I cannot stress to you enough, IF YOU WANT TO COMPETE AND MAKE NOTICEABLE CHANGES IN MUSCLE MASS TAKE A GOOD, LONG OFF SEASON. Enjoy the extra food, embrace the “fluff” and train heavy.
This time around I’ll have taken about an 18 month off season and I’m so excited to see the changes come next fall. Until prep starts in the spring it’s more 💪🏼 and 🍴. #jcdSTRONG #naturalbikini #naturalbikinicompetitor #bikinicompetitor #bikiniprep #girlswholift #ifpabikini #ifpaworlds #ifpaproelite #ifpabikinipro #npcbikini #onlinecoach #competitionprep #bikiniprepcoach #ngabikini #ngabikinipro #legprogress #glutes #glutesthatsalute
