Getting Phat with JH

Hey Everyone,

So today is actually Saturday... I think I was confused when I updated on Thursday because I said it was Wednesday when it wasn't. Hmmm.... should I be taking a vacation soon?

So my big news for the day, aside from my food and training, is:

I attended Jenny Hendershott's PHAT camp last night in Toronto! Woohoo!

It was Boot Camp Jen Hendershott Style!
I worked out with her Phat Campers sweating to her every command – Burpees, mountain climbers, bear crawl mountain climbers, dynamic planks on hands then on elbows, running, crunches – whatever she wanted us to do we did it!!


5 hardboiled eggs + 1 yolk
250 ml water with wheat grass
250 ml water with lemon juice
5 fish oil capsules
1/4 c. wheat germ
1/4 c. oatmeal (cooked in water)
2 tbsp. flaxseed
2 tbsp. bee pollen

Mid AM:
5 oz. tuna
2 stalks celery
250 ml water
chamomile tea

Lunch: I had to eat at my desk because I was busily working away... I'm sure a lot of you can relate to this
Grilled chicken breast
Roasted sweet potato

Mid PM: I ate this in the car on my way to Belleville to attend my daughter's academic awards ceremony
1 sm. apple
1/2 liter water
4 sm pieces of melba toast
1 chicken breast

Poached salmon
Grilled veggies
2 sm. potatoes
Black coffee

I went to bed very hungry on Thursday night.... oh the joys of competition!

Since I was in Belleville with Kelsey for her academic award night I did not end up training, BUT I doubled up on workouts on Friday.


Breakfast with Kelsey in Belleville:
500 ml water
Black coffee
Hot oatmeal
Egg white omelet

Mid Morning:
1 small apple
2 tablespoons almond butter

Grilled chicken
½ multi grain wrap
½ sweet potato

Mid Afternoon:
Grilled chicken
10 cucumber slices

Dinner eaten in the car on the way to the Phat Camp:
Grilled chicken with alfalfa sprouts in ½ wrap

At Phat Camp:
Grilled chicken
Cucumber and tomato salad (no dressing)
½ apple

Training before Phat Camp started:
Back: 5 sets heavy pulldowns, 4 sets heavy rows
Chest: 5 sets heavy seated chest press, 4 sets heavy seated flyes

Thanks for sharing Phat Camp with us Tosca. The pictures are great.
I am wondering, with the amount of heavy training you are doing, if you are sore on a daily basis. If so, how do you ease the pain, do you take something, do you stretch more?

Thanks for the great post! I was curious, tuna is the only thing I have a hard time eating ( not because I don't like it ) but because it's dry without mayo - what do you put on it, to help it go down with the celery? Thank you. Sherri

Hi Tosca,
Wed, Thurs, Fri...Sat...sometimes I don't know if I'm coming or going either...a busy schedule and doing the iron thing can do it to you...keep up the good work, stay 'focused', tomorrow is Suuuundaaaaay look amazing - never forget that you inspire people when you reach out to them through written word - so it doesn't really matter what day it is!

Why do you drink water with the juice of one lemon every morning?
