I became serious about my workouts In June of 2009 during my training for the Susan G. Colman 3 Day Breast Cancer Walk. Walking 20 miles a day for 3 straight days required lots of training walks. My inspiration kicker was the sweet, tears and stories, of the women and men who had lost a loved one to breast cancer. Women and Men even 3 times my age were out there beating the pavement and reaching their milestones. It was then that I decided to reach for my goals instead of just writing them down. I began to hit the weights and engage in the proper nutrition so that I may further my fitness career!
Monday- Core and Back
Tuesday- Arms and lower body
Wednesday- Core and Cardio
Thursday- Lower body and Back
Friday- Cardio and Arms
Saturday- Circuit Training
Sunday- Cardio (two sessions)
I engage in cardio at least three days per week, including one double session day. My cardio usually consist of plyometric hikes with a 12lbs vest, sprinting, and two mile runs.
I keep my fridge stocked with fresh fruits and vegetables, Greek yogurt, egg beaters, and ready-to-drink protein beverages. The freezer is always packed with frozen chicken breast, tilapia, blender fruits, and veggies.
Celery and carrots are my most favorite healthy foods.
My favorite cheat food would have to be my homemade buffalo chicken wings.
Jamie Eason is my role model!! She is the prime example of how big things can come from small packages! She is not only beautiful and amazingly fit, but she has a very approachable intellectual side to her. I love reading her columns and her website is full of wonderful information that aid in my success. I can’t wait to meet her!
My core is my favorite feature of my body because I can now see my incubating ab work
The chest…and if I may add, the forearms.
