Hmmm ... I usually tell people that I'm 26 but I'm actually 33, lol!
I've lost 85 pounds

When and why did you decide to start your transformation journey?
My journey started when I went to try on bridesmaid dresses for my sister's wedding and I had to look at myself over and over again in the mirror ( probably like 30 times, lol ) and I didn't like what I saw...I couldn't believe it was me anymore. I had two beautiful little girls but I had never lost all of the "baby weight" and I thought I never would.

What keeps you motivated along your journey?
Being there for my daughters and setting a good example for them and just helping others on their own journey keeps me motivated every day!

What are your fitness goals?
For my fitness goals, I just want to steadily push myself harder and harder. I've had two kids, so I know I probably won't have six-pack abs or anything like that ( although it would be nice! ) but I would love to improve my overall tone, work on strength training, and improve my cardio to maintain a nice, healthy heart!

What does your weekly exercise schedule look like?
I work out for 30 min a day, 5 days a week. I prefer Beachbody programs because they have a calendar to go off and each program has a bunch of DVD's with it so that you don't get bored at all and that's really important to me! Right now, I'm doing Shaun T's Insanity Max:30 and then after that I'm going to start Autumn Calabrese's program the 21 Day Fix Extreme...time to get shredded baby!

What nutritional goals do you strive for?
for nutrition, I'm a fan of tracking, so I stay within the healthy limits for my height and weight but I'm always trying to integrate more "power" foods!

What “tips and / or tricks” do you have for others?
for tips and tricks, I just say that it's so important for you to educate yourself...I'm an area supervisor for McDonald's and I eat there for free while I work so I get 10 free meals a week there and ain't no way I was gonna pass that up! So I use all of the tools and resources available to me so that I can still eat McDonald's 10 times a week and still lose weight and it has obviously worked for me!

How has your life changed since the start of your transformation journey?
oh wow, my life is soooo much better now! I have more energy, I don't feel as stressed, and I just enjoy life more! I never thought this would be possible again!

What are some of your favorite motivational thoughts and / or quotes that inspire you?
My favorite quote is actually something that I use as my "anchor" every day to snap me right back on track if I'm struggling...
"Without struggle, there is no progress." - Frederick Douglass
