Mr.Olympia 2018

So excited that I was able to attend the 2018 Mr Olympia in Las Vegas! I had such an awesome time traveling out to Vegas and bonding with my Bikini Prep teammates. Seeing all the competitors and exhibitors made me even more excited to be on my own prep! What an experience seeing and meeting so many amazing people who share the same passion for health and fitness!

Bikini Competition – Tailored Physiques

I am excited to announce that I have joined the NPC BIKINI PREP ON TEAM Tailored Physiques. I NEVER thought that I would be saying in my life that I was prepping for a bikini competition but here I am. Looking back in 2013, my story almost ended when I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and since then my life has never been the same. I have taken my second chance and not only became a survivor but a life thriver by taking control of my health.

It has been less than a week since I officially started and I already knew this was going to be one of the most challenging things I have done. I was very hesitant before I begun on how much I was going to be sharing of this part of my life online due to my own personal protection because of all the criticism and judgment. But I am happy to say that I have had nothing but genuine support and love online and in person. I know it’s not always going to be like this but I am going to keep omg sinking whether you are a hater or supporting watching my journey. I am doing this for ME. I also am doing this in hopes of inspiring others as a cancer survivor I can not only “survive” but actually thrive in their own lives.

I have been vloging my journey on my YouTube channel as much as I can, thank you for your patience as I get my videos posted and again THANK YOU FOR ALL THE LOVE AND SUPPORT .

Tupperware Gang: Not just for the gym rats anymore

From leftovers to now calling it “meal prep” there has been a dramatic shift in the attitude towards eating out of tupperware and how it is viewed from society, but in a positive way. I remember the first time I ordered meal prep back in 2015 when I was staying with one of my coworkers at the time waiting for my apartment to be ready and I did not want to burden her with cooking in her kitchen since I was a guest. Cue On Season Meals, who had just recently opened their doors and was conveniently located on my commute to work

After a few weeks of ordering I had felt so spoiled that I didn’t have to lift a finger to prep anymore and around that time was when I started getting into health and fitness so I continued to order my meal prep. I honestly could not cook my food every single time I ate and just thinking about the amount of cleanup and dishes already makes me tired and stressed!

Meal Prep during my salon visit

Along my journey I have run into so many people who are embarrassed and uncomfortable to bust out to tupperware in public. Meanwhile I am sitting over here with a plastic fork and a container in my purse ready to eat, always! People always tease me about this but I don’t mind at all! You have to unapologetically take the steps to align yourself towards your own goals. Whether that goal is weight loss, eating healthy, or building muscle its going to take discipline and most of all stepping out of your comfort zone.
I eat my mealprep on the beach, in the movies, on the plane, and I even bring it while I’m getting my hair done at the salon. And guess what? Nobody cares or even asks me about it.

Beachin it

When you really think about it isn’t it silly to care so much about what other people think? But I completely understand and often find myself falling into that pattern.
If you eat out a lot and your goal this year is to start fueling your body whether or not you want to lose weigh explore ordering meal prep. I still need help getting my food prepped even though I am extremely efficient in making my own meals but it gives me time back in my already busy week. Meal prep can range anywhere from $7 to $16/ meal but you need to consider on average how much do you spend when you eat out even if it is fast food. Here are some things the consider when choosing a meal prep company:
1. Location – Is the meal prep company conveniently located or will they deliver?
2. Do they have any special membership pricing or perks?
3. Do they have a good variety and the ability to customize your order according to your goals?
4. Is it easy for you to order?
5. What meals do you need to order that fit your lifestyle? I currently order breakfast, lunch, dinner. In the past I also ordered five extra meals that had just protein and vegetables as well.
Onseason Meals just launched their new program called club OSM where they send you a weekly email for you to choose your meals so you don’t forget and you can have it delivered right to your door! Check it out here and first time issues can save 10% with my code KELSEYFITCHIC20
So whether you are a competitive athlete, a parent on the go, or someone trying to live a healthier lifestyle remember there is no shame shame in being a member of the Tupperware gang!
