About Barbells ‘n Bites


I would like to tell you a little bit about myself and why I started a blog.

I am a 45 year old wife and mom to three teenage boys and living in Canada. I have had a passion for fitness and health for as long as I can remember. From the time I was 10 years old doing cartwheels around the backyard until now, I have been active and very interested in any health and fitness related reading material that I could get my hands on. I have tried many different workouts and training techniques, as well as a lot of different diets and eating styles! Although throughout the last 25 years my weight has fluctuated up and down somewhat, what has never changed is my desire to keep improving and challenging myself.

Three years ago, with the help of my trainer, I discovered a passion for competing on the stage. I have competed in three bikini competitions so far, and in May of 2014 I won 1st place in Masters Bikini at a small local show. This fuelled my fire for getting and staying in the best shape of my life, and I am now at the point where I want to share my love of health and wellness with the rest of the world.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you will follow along with me as I share all the ups and downs of my fitness journey!
