1. Tell us about yourself and your fitness lifestyle and journey.
I am full-time cosmetology student. I decided to make the transition into a “healthy lifestyle” right before I started school.
2. What are your goals and how are you working towards them?
My original goal was to loose an X amount of weight but over the summer I decided that I wanted to be in the area of 127-137. Since January of 2012 I’ve lost 40-45lbs. Its been a long journey of watching what I eat and hitting the gym hard. I’m still need about 11lbs. Then Id really like to focus on toning, building muscle and feel comfortable with my body.
3. Do you “eat clean”?
I have a routine..I HAVE to eat breakfast. That is an ABSOLUTE must for me. I can not even explain how whacked out my day gets if I don’t eat breakfast within an hour of waking up. During the week I’m up at 6am so I eat breakfast pretty early followed by a snack around 10am and lunch at 12:30-1:30 then I have a snack around 4:30pm followed by dinner around 7pm. Oatmeal/brown sugar, yogurt/fruit or egg whites is my breakfast choice. Lunch often varies but usually some kind of meat with veggies. Dinner sometimes consists of tuna with a hard boiled egg or just tuna. Dinner sometimes isn’t very healthy but I try and keep it as clean as possible.
4. In what ways do you stay active?
I hit the gym 4-5 days a week. Monday I do a 30min ab class followed by 45 min of advanced step followed by a weight lifting class. Tues and Thursday I have boot camp from 6-7pm and yoga from 7-8pm. Wednesday/Sunday are cardio.
5. What inspires you to live this lifestyle?
I became inspired the day I started seeing results and fitting into clothes I thought I never could. I truly feel great at the end of the day.
