And We're Off...

Today is November 10th/08.

There are 11 days until the prejudging.

Miss Bikini America – November 21, 22

Prejudging on November 21 at 9:00 am


Finals on November 22 at 9:00 am


Fly out to Vegas on November 19th

Number of meals until prejudging:
About 67 mostly with fish and vegetables

Number of workouts until prejudging:

I train about 3 times per day and rest day every two days. Weight training will be done quite regularly - probably every day focusing particularly on problem areas as we assess the body each day but there is little training as of the Wednesday before contest – helps to prevent edema (swelling in the skin).

16 more cardio sessions

At least 10 more weight training sessions

By the way... There will be several TV stations covering the Miss Bikini America contest so watch for it!

COUNTDOWN WITH ME AS I PREP!! AND ENJOY THE PICS!!

P.S. About Bananas: since the competition training diet is so strict bananas are not allowed. They are quite high in natural sugar and do not fall within an acceptable range for competition purposes. I eat them all the time when I am not training for competition. I get potassium from plenty of other sources, including brown rice, tomatoes, broccoli, garlic, and meat sources.

P.P.S. About Wheat Grass: Everyone is interested in the wheat grass. I use a local flash frozen kind that is delivered right to my door. It comes from Stoufville, Ontario, a little town not more than 30 minutes away. However it can be ordered on line at www.dynamicgreens.com. The name of the brand I use is Dynamic Greens Wheatgrass. I just remove however many little frozen wheat grass cubes I need and then put them in a glass of water. Let them melt and drink them down. Please note, I am NOT endorsed to use this product. I just found it online and started using it after I watched the show, Crazy Sexy Cancer. I don’t want cancer and many, many people use wheat grass as a powerful nutritional supplement to ward against disease.

P.P.S. Update on TV Show Airing in the US: As for the show airing in New Jersey we are hopeful that the W network can sell the concept to our friends south of the border. In fact banking on that hope, the show has been shot in High Definition – this is the truest indicator that the network feels the show may work well stateside. So cross your fingers and call your friends – watch the show and email W to get it in America.

Tosca,
I just noticed the Eat Clean Diet for Men- yeah!!!!!! I've been trying (subtly) to get my husband into this lifestyle (as I've embraced it myself since April 2008 with fantastic results)- this will help me to give him the push, er.. I mean direction and tools to set him on this healthy path. Looking forward to it!!! TO

You look AMAZING!!! Tosca,Why do you take so many fish oil tablets. And do you just take MSN or does it also have Glucosamine and/or Chondrotan in it? Also is it bad to put 1/4 cup nonfat,unsweetened soy milk in my morning coffee? Thanks(:

Tosca, my prayers are with you although I don't think you need them! When you are not in competition mode, how many cardio sessions a week do you do? It seems you always run. Is there a reason you don't do other forms as much? If I do leg day 2x a week is it o.k. to train glutes on the day in between if I do not isolate glute exercises in my leg routine? One more if I may. Why do you often take CAL/MAG supplements?
