I am a University of Texas Graduate and have been a business owner since graduation. I am also now a certified Personal Trainer with an NASM certificate! I never really knew what my one “thing” was that i wanted to do for the rest of my life. I have always been interested in Fitness and health but never really took the time to dedicate myself to learning and actually doing something about it.
I remeber what really made me say that I wanted to change. I was out at a bar with a friend, and realized I had downed a whole ramikan of ranch with fried pickles! My friend who doesnt eat cheese or ranch for no other reason other than it’s fattening, said “that’s why I don’t eat that stuff.” And that sparked this thing inside me that made me realize being fit is a lifestyle! You don’t say, ‘Sorry, I’m on a diet.” It should be “I don’t eat that. EVER!”
In September of 2011, I decided that I wanted to get fit and stop just clocking in gym time. My problem in the past was that I was just like evryone else… I worked out regularly but didn’t pay any attention to all the junk I was eating and therefore never saw real results. I decided to do my research and took the plunge! I put together a meal and workout plan and said, “no excuses. I’m doing this!” I saw results so quickly once I started to eat clean, and it just motivated me to push harder.
As I was doing my research and leaning down, I kept noticing these fitness and bikini competitions that people were competing in. I did a little research and got hooked! I was determined to do it and do it on my own with no coaching. I have enjoyed competing and will continue it for the time being… Anyway, what i want to accomplish with this blog and with my lifestyle is to just motivate and inspire people! I want everyone to know that it can be done and anybody can do it!! I did it by myself and continue to push forward! EAT. TRAIN. LIFT. Its a lifestyle!
