30 Day Challenge | Pamela: Day 19 - Let's Talk Food For a Minute

February 06, 2014 2 min read

Since yesterday was the Superbowl I decided to swap my workout and rest days, so even though it is technically day 19 of the challenge, I did the day 18 workout. The other day when one of my daily logs for the 30 day challenge went live, there were several people who took exception to what I was eating, stating that my food log was too sparse, that I wasn’t eating enough, that I was a bad example, and that somehow I wasn’t a real person based on what I ate for the day. The not a real person was my favorite comment by far… I feel pretty real, but who knows, I could be a total fake. I'll discuss this more in the food section, so stay tuned.

The workout

Um... can I just say that I love Rita's workouts? I really really do. They're the perfect blend of HIIT and traditional strength training. Find the workout video along with a workout breakdown and warm-up/cool down videos for day 18 here.


Today I didn't make any modifications for my back injury :) I love being able to say this. I feel like my back is getting stronger and stronger every day. Day 18

Food log

If you pay close attention to my food log you'll notice that I don't put any measurements or calories. There's a reason for this.... I don't measure my food or count my calories. I eat until I am full. So, when you see that I ate a kale salad for lunch, that salad was as big as my head and included a ton of raisins, Parmesan cheese, and pecans... when I'm done, I'm literally stuffed! Some of the commentators on my food intake, that I mentioned above, were  especially outraged that I don't eat breakfast. Opinions regarding what food, how much a person should eat, and when they should eat it are a dime a dozen. Not even certified nutritionists completely agree on proper nutrition. My approach to nutrition is to simply listen to my body. If I'm not hungry, then I'm not going to eat. I'm not a believer in stuffing food into your mouth just because it's "time" to eat. So, here's the point of all this. Your body knows best. Listen to it. Don't let others tell you that you need to eat more or less, or a certain number of meals or calories. Do what feels right for you. As long as you stick to real foods, and avoid the foods you know aren't good for you, you'll be just fine. Eat right, workout, and make these two things a daily habit. Whew! Off my soapbox now and on to my food log!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
