I have always been competitive my whole life so fitness and the fact that you can always push harder is just something I enjoy doing. It first started with marathons in 2009 and then as a result of an injury to my ankle, I needed to still fulfill my desire to push… so I took it to the weight room ladies!
My motivation comes from my own desire to know that I can always work harder to do better to look and feel fantastic! There are no limits, only plateaus, never settle!
I used to be quite a cardio junkie, however my main concentration now is on H.I.T Training (High Intensity Training). This provides you a cardio/weight/all around dominating workout!
In terms of favourite healthy recipes, I live a healthy lifestyle so all my recipes are healthy and can be found on my website beingfatiseasy.com
I’m gluten sensitive and lactose intolerant, which helps with eating clean, but I don’t believe in diets, eating clean is your lifestyle not a fad!
Cravings… for junk food, don’t have them, I am sweet tooth at heart! For my sweet tooth I have mastered my own sweet treat recipes that are 100% clean that can be found on my website as well. As for salty things, I stay away from salt because of heart disease on both sides of my family.
Favorite 3 exercises… Twenty fours, My empire 48’s, and 185lbs barbell squats for reps of 6!
My routine consists of four days weight training and one day of cardio. Weekends off. I call the gym “my office”. I am there to do work! I always do a minimum of four sets per exercise. Every set is not a number count of reps… it’s to failure. 20 reps of an exercise doesn’t mean you’re exhausting yourself, having your body trying to shut down does! So I push.
My long-term goal set for myself is to win the Olympia Bikini Title!
These days I am most proud of the fact that I am able to inspire others to work and train harder for themselves. It pleases me to see the looks on some of the boy’s faces in the gym when I am squatting more than they are! But it also is most rewarding to see more and more girls feeling confident to hammer out weights!
I have yet to have had any obstacles or setbacks to prohibit me from continuing to strive for my own personal perfection. I think this is due to the fact that I “everyday it”. I work hard 365 days a year, not just 16 weeks out when it’s supposed to matter.
My progress will be measured by the amount of trophies to come! Haha!
I am competitive with myself and can always judge where I can do better based on my appearance.
Supplements I live by, USANA Vitamin Supplements that can be purchased through my website, as well as 1MR by BPI, hands down the best pre-workout ever! And IsoFlex whey protein. The combination of these supplements keep me killin’ it day in and day out!
A few last words and tips for you ladies out there… stop wearing make up to the gym, you’re there to sweat and work hard! Step out of your comfort zone (the women’s only section) and take it to the weight room floor, and for the love of god ladies… start hammering weights! They’re not gonna get you huge, they’re gonna get you sexy! Lift eat and destroy!
