The Power May Be Out But The Muscle Is ON!

Happy Sunday Afternoon Clean Eaters one and all.

Countdown: 5 days!!

The Happenings: Ontario was struck with some nasty weather and we are experiencing a power outage at my house. BUT, as you can imagine Sisters in Iron, that's not stopping me.

Where We Left Off:
So I have a few days of eating and training to catch you up on. I also have included more fun pics since you all enjoyed the last ones so much.

Friday - Don’t I look amazing without! My skin is glowing thanks to best friend Franca who did a facial and a body scrub, pedi and mani! Gotta look my best on stage!!

4 oz. Wild salmon
½ sweet potato
1 cup steamed broccoli
8 spears steamed asparagus

How cute is Franca's pup, Flex the Spa Dog. Flex is lean and muscular too – a very gentle Doberman. Flex helps us eat our eggs. We eat the whites and she eats the yolks, hence the beautiful coat!!

Shoulders: 5 sets shoulder presses for 15 reps each set up to 25 pounds
Shoulders: 4 sets lateral raise, 15 to 20 reps each set up to 15 pounds
Back: 5 sets lat pulldowns, 15 reps each set up to 90 pounds; 2 sets pulldowns behind neck, 15 reps and 50 pounds

Cardio session#2: 30 minutes intervals

Before Bed: No food but 500 ml water with Cal/Mag and MSM supplement mixture!!!


250 ml hot water with lemon (liver cleanse)

½ c cooked hot cereal (oatmeal, wheat germ, flax and salba)
3 egg whites
250 ml water with wheat grass, fish oil caps, multivitamins

My daughter, Kelsey-Lynn, had her first Nutcracker performance last night so we drove to Belleville to see her. She was beautiful and I will include some pics as soon as I can. I had to take my cooler with me so I could stick to my training diet. Here's what was inside:

3 hard-boiled egg whites

2 c salad greens
5 oz salmon
250 ml water

Mid Afternoon:
About 5 oz chicken
250 ml water

1.5 c steamed green beans
5 oz. sole



Pre Breakfast: I was at the hotel so no go on my usual lemon water etc.

Breakfast: 10:30 am
3 egg-white omelet
½ c. cooked cereal (same as above)
sliced tomatoe
250 ml water

Lunch: 12:30 pm
5 oz chicken
1 c steamed broccoli

Mid Afternoon: 3:30 pm
5 oz salmon
½ c. steamed broccoli
Started on distilled water to cut sodium

The treadmill is out of commission because of the power outage due to the snowfall. I will jogging up the driveway this afternoon. Good thing weights don't require any electricity... just pure muscular energy!

What's On Tap:
Thank goodness I had already prepped my cooler yesterday for the overnighter in Belleville so now I can just eat out of that. I’m not sure what my family will be eating tonight. Hopefully the power comes back on soon.

Things are going to get boring now with food. Stay with me folks.

I’m going to go put a candle on and do some reading now. It’s like the dark ages… minus my internet connection.


  1. Ahh, so sorry about the power outage!! But hooray for spa days :-)

    Flex is too cute!!

    I'm praying that your power returns soon!!!

  2. I love the pic of the dog. That's hillarious.
    Sorry to hear your power is out. You sound a little tired in your post. Just a few more days and then you will be centre stage. Hang in there, you are almost there. I can't wait.


  3. Hang in there Tosca, you're doing great! You CAN DO it. I am 28 years old and you're my inspiration! Love the photo of Flex- what a cutie!

  4. Tosca,
    I love all you pics, even with the one where you have the mask on! You must had a great relaxing time, but no massage?
    also sorry about your power out,hope the situation change soon...
    Ohhh and btw...I tried the hip thrust you were doing on glute training day, but I just could not fit a 45 pound plate on my stomach... it was two big! I did put two 25 together then used those, but my hip bone was hurting when doing so, since the plates were touching them.. soo my question would be how do you do it? any special way I should know about?
    Keep up your great work! You are almost in Vegas! Yay!!!! Sending you positive energy as usual
