Day 22: Abs are made in the Kitchen

February 09, 2014 3 min read

As I said in my last post, I sadly have tonsillitis so have had to take a week off from doing the 30 day challenge workouts, but am putting all of my excitement for the challenge into preparing the healthiest meals I possibly can. It feels so rubbish not being able to do the workouts at the moment, especially when my email pops up with the itinerary for the workout, but I am determined that although I can't exercise right now I'm not going to let all of my hard work so far in the challenge go to waste. After all abs are made in the kitchen. I could follow the 30 day challenge workouts all the way through, but unless I am eating right my body isn't going to improve in the way that I want it to. Those of you who have been following my 30 day challenge posts will have noticed from my food habits that I am very much someone who likes to follow a similar routine with my food every day. I've always been pretty fussy. Luckily as I have grown older I have started to try more foods, but as a child basically all I would eat was chicken and pasta, and a hint of that fussiness has stuck with me. Although I'm much happier to try new things these days, there is still a part of me that is perfectly comfortable with eating the same thing day in and day out. But I realised that it's not the best thing for me to be doing because, although I eat pretty healthily, eating as I always have done is not going to get me the results I want to see. if-you-eat-what-youve-always-eaten-youll-weigh-what-you-always-weighed I do though very rarely ever break away from having porridge for breakfast so that will pretty much be a constant throughout my posts. Today I ate fantastically well: Breakfast: Porridge (unsurprisingly) Lunch: Flourless protein pancakes from the Catching Fire guide Dinner: Mediterranean baked salmon from the Catching Fire guide I was amazed by both of the Catching Fire guide recipes I tried today! Ciara Foy has without a doubt produced some delicious recipes in this guide. Before I made them I was particularly sceptical about the flourless protein pancakes because any foods I have ever tried to make using protein powder have gone terribly wrong and have had a disgusting texture as well as taste. These pancakes were delicious though! I was going to take a picture, but I had to use chocolate protein powder instead of vanilla (because chocolate is the only one I have) and because of this the pancakes looked burnt because of the brown colour. They weren't though, they were amazing! I've already written them down on my meal plan to have again tomorrow. Healthy pancakes that don't taste like rubber. Perfect! After tasting the pancakes I was quite excited about making the Mediterranean baked salmon for my dinner, and I wasn't disappointed. I have to admit I'm not a big fan of fish (unless it's battered), but this tasted delicious. I didn't have any fresh oregano as the recipe calls for so I laid the salmon on a bed of kale on my plate so that I could get my dose of 'greens'. It looked beautiful and tasted fantastic! Yet another gorgeous recipe from the Catching Fire guide! salmon I can't think of a day in my life that I have ever eaten quite as well as today and I'm already excited to get started on my food prep for tomorrow. Focussing on my meals is taking my mind off missing the workouts. If you are interested in any of the meals I have mentioned today from the Catching Fire guide, click here to buy it now! It's reduced for the 30 day challenge.

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.
