My fitness journey started in: September 2010

It was time for me to begin a fitness program when: I looked in the mirror one morning and wasn’t happy with what I saw. For me it wasn’t as much as a weight loss program I wanted more of a program to build muscle and become fit.

My personal trainer: is my hero. Leah plays a vital role in my life, she is supportive, non judgmental and a great listener. Leah has become someone very special to me, I would not be able to do this without her help and knowledge. After 4 knee surgeries I’m very limited to what exercises I can do, Leah had taken that into consideration and helped me almost reach my goals.

Things I have learned: stay positive and not to be to hard on yourself.

Favorite food: Thai chicken wrap and yam fries.

Cheat food: Chocolate and pasta.

Most challenging exercise: squats, lunges

Favorite exercise: crunches

Health tip: Water, water and more water.

Weekly plan: 45 minute walk 5 days a week. Personal Trainer 1hour per week, Pilates with Leah twice a week. 2 days a week cardio. Sundays are me days.

Daily eating plan: This one is hard for me, I’ve just started eating breakfast and I feel so much better (Leah was right) I’m trying to eat smaller meals more times per day and nothing at bedtime.

When I reach my goal weight and get some muscles: Ill wear shorts and a tank top out of the house.
