What if my child cries? Or doesn't listen to the teacher? What if she won't participate? 

You know what? If any of the above happen it would be totally normal! Including seeing your sweet little one attempt to roll across the floor and lick the mirror. Seriously. It's normal.

So how can you prepare your child for a fun and fruitful class experience?

1. Arrive early! Come into the studio 10-15 minu...

Show Day!

Posted by Lindsay Huitt on May 25, 2014 at 11:10 AM Comments comments (0)

The Oregon Ironman brought so many new experiences my way. Some of which I loved and others I can just check off my list! My first time in a Casino, my first shellac manicure, my first time intentionally dehydrating myself, my first Brazilian wax, my first professional spray tan (actually my first spray tan of any kind), first time whitening ...

3 Days Out

Posted by Lindsay Huitt on May 14, 2014 at 1:15 AM Comments comments (0)

We have only 3 days left until SHOW DAY!! I can see a big difference in my muscle definition between these pics and the ones in the green suit from 2 weeks ago. My coach says I am ready at my current body fat of 7.1%.  

Over the next 3 days I will be working on dehydrating. Which sounds miserable. I am not looking forward to the process, but the results will be interesting. No more salt or artificial sweeteners are allowed.  My Belly will thank me for this. I felt a littl...

I heart high carb days!

Posted by Lindsay Huitt on May 5, 2014 at 12:25 AM Comments comments (0)

Over the last week I have been carb cycling. I won't go into depth now, but it is a way of tricking your body to burn stored fat for energy but manipulating your carb intake. For 3 days I eat only 70ish grams of carbs per day. Then I get one day of up to 200 grams of carbs before going back down again. (This is not advised unless your body is very lean, otherwise it will not lead to positive results). Today was my secon...

2 1/2 weeks out

The count down has begun! There are just 17 days left until the Oregon Ironman. I have booked our hotel, purchased my suit and heels, begun tanning as often as possible and whitening my teeth. The preparation seems to get more intense each day. I am continuing my weight lifting workouts and cardio with rest on Sunday (aside from dance practice).

I began carb cycling th...

Set backs and steps forward

Posted by Lindsay Huitt on March 8, 2014 at 1:05 AM Comments comments (0)

February was kinda rough. The month started with one of my boy's birthdays (read this as a week of cake in the house) and ended with the other boy's birthday (a few days worth of cupcakes in the house and oreos... and Easter candy). In between all the junk food I had the stomach flu which resulted in not eating, and then eating only carbohydrates as I recovered and m...

Turkey Meatloaf "Muffin" Recipe

Posted by Lindsay Huitt on February 17, 2014 at 12:45 PM Comments comments (0)


I have been enjoying these little meatloaves as they make an easy snack that is much more interesting than plain turkey or chicken. The original recipe says to put them in a muffin pan but I prefer to use a 1/3 measuring cup to scoop them into large meatballs.

Nutrition Info:

Calories: 80 per muffin/meatball

Bikini Prep Sample Meal Plan

Posted by Lindsay Huitt on February 7, 2014 at 5:30 PM Comments comments (0)

At my current stage of training the purpose of my diet is to facilitate muscle growth and keep body fat low.  Plus of course giving me adequate energy for my daily tasks of teaching and keeping up with my kids. Here is a sample of a typical day:

Drink 1 gallon of water. Plus some coffee (I like 1/2 cup of 1% in my coffee but later that will have to stop). I sometimes add a packet of Emergen-C to 16oz of water and a little Raw Apple Cider Vinegar. ...
