A Weight Loss Journey Guide
So, here it is, August already. What have I been up to all summer? I have been gearing up for the IFPA Pro Galaxy Elite on August 17th in Troy, Alabama. I selected this show in hopes to qualify for the Yorton again this year. Along with an intense training program with Debbie Portell's Integrity Training Systems & competition diet plan with Roger Schemp out of Powerhouse Gym in St. Louis, I have been working part time as a registered nurse at Barnes Hospital in St. Louis and part time as a personal trainer at Complete Fitness in Lake St Louis, Mo. I've had the privilege of representing one of my sponsors, www.themusclesource.com, at a couple of shows in the midwest this year. It truly has been an honor to hand out trophies to so many well deserving athletes.
At times as a single parent, I have found it to be challenging to find time to meal prep, train, take care of my boys and keep the house clean. I'd have to say it's a delicate balance. I'm always finding creative ways to multitask and prioritize. I certainly am excited to step on stage again. I also have a few photo shoots lined up this fall.
Competing and fitness modeling at age 39, mother of two, just goes to show anything can be done if you put your mind to it. For so many, the mind limits the body. Don't let fear get in the way of your dreams.
