At the Nike Store downtown Toronto

Progress :) 

It’s been a few months since i was completely off activity from my second stress fracture. I’ve been doing Moksha hot yoga 3-4 times a week to stay injury-free and I’ve found it’s supported my training very well and kept my legs healthy :) 

Just a few weeks till Tough Mudder!! 



3 rounds 

50 seconds on 10 seconds off of the following: 

1) 5 Squats + 10 High-Knees

2) Plyo-Pushups (I did it from my knees) 

3) 5 Squat lunge + 5 around the world with weight

No-Bake Protein Bars from sara.zanatto on


  • 1 cup of almond milk (original; unsweetened)
  • 3 scoops of whey protein powder (chocolate or vanilla)
  • 3 cups of rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup of natural peanut (or almond) butter
  • 1/2 cup of dark-chocolate chips or dried cranberries


Mix all ingredients together in large bowl. You can use a spoon or your hands until it’s well mixed.

You can make two variations with this recipe (I’m sure there’s more, but I haven’t experimented yet). First, use chocolate protein powder and dark-chocolate chips. Or second, use vanilla protein powder and dried cranberries. I’m sure you could substitute raisins or even nuts too.

Spread / flatten into bottom of casserole dish and place in the fridge.

When you’re ready to eat, cut into bar-sized pieces.

Warning: they are a little gooey!



I’m on the right track and it’s getting easier to stick to healthy habits the more results I see. Please feel free to ask/comment/rant about anything box.

What’s your favourite body part to train? 

I LOVE MY BACK. when I’m losing motivation or falling back into negativity, I try not to think about what I don’t like about my body and what “could be better”. I think about what I LOVE and the things I have accomplished. 

E.g. - My back looks hawt in a training suit, I can bench 90lbs.
