To answer a couple of questions:
In the initial stages of competition prep I will bake my chicken. When it is closer to the date boiled chicken is the way to go.

As for training I will start getting a bit more detailed about my regime.

Also, thanks to everyone who shared their Thanksgiving memories and meals with me. I am glad my recipes come in handy.

Hi Tosca! It's my first time posting to your blog. I have been following your blog for quite some time now! I have all of your books. One question, why have you stopped taking bee pollen and now you are using salba? Thank you for all your inspiration!

Denise

P.S. Will you come in the Montreal reagion soon?

Tosca,

Thank you for sharing your Thanksgiving with all of us! Really enjoy seeing all of the photos! I have been following your eating routine as closely as possible to experience what it feels like to get ready for a competition. Next step will hopefully be to enter one.
Sis in Iron,

Hi there. I don't think I could eat boiled chicken. I like flavour. :) Spices etc. Not so much the meat. I certainly admire anyone who can eat like this daily. You must be extremely strong willed and focused. Great job! Thanks for keeping us up to date. You are truly inspiring.
