Contest Prep 101 - Round 2







Hi Ladies!



I am back! And here we go with some good old contest eating. I have been super busy trying to dig out from underneath the "Back From Holland" work pile so I have grouped my first few days of eating together. Actually Day 1 was off the rails because I had no food in the house thanks to the trip to Holland but here it is regardless.



Oh, that's me in Delft, Holland standing on a bridge in this 600 year old town. Delft is my mother's home town, where she was born and raised. It is also the town where they make Delft Blue Pottery for the royal family.

I just have to say what a true inspiration you are to the women over 40 (me) :) You are my new hero and inspire me each time I read your blog. I love that you post pictures because you can actually see the person writing and the body they have is from so much hard work. It's not just words. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Tosca,

I read that you added 2 tablespoons of Salba in your oatmeal.
Can you please inform us if you take the whole or ground seed?
I see that the gel oil pill formula is also available.

Thanks and keep on inspiring us all
