Welcome to my blog! I’m excited to share with you Recipes, Fitness tips and Workouts. I started my Journey at the age of 6 running track and swimming. I have had my ups and downs in my fitness journey. I ran Track in college,but somehow managed to gain the freshman 15. My sophmore year I struggled with weight issues while still trying to compete at a college level. The summer after my sophmore year I decided to make a change. I started eating better and running 5k races. I came back as a junior in the best shape ever. After I graduated I gained 20lbs and struggled to get it off. As a fitness instructor I thought I could out train a bad diet. But 3 years later and after having my son I still wasnt able to lose the weight. I tried every diet and did tons of cardio to try and get my athlete body back. In the fall of 2011 I discovered Jamie Eason’s Livefit Trainer. In 3 months I lost 15lbs and 7% bodyfat. I was modivated and wanted to see more results. I signed up for a bikini fitness competition and trained for another 3 months. The program focused on building muscle while eating clean foods. In 6 months I had lost 20lbs and stepped on stage with 11% bodyfat. I took home a second place trophy, but more importantly the knowleged and determination to be an athlete again.
