Why I Got Started
dot

When I was in high school I was active with sports. On top of that I had a membership at the YMCA that I used mostly for cardio and some weight training, but sporadically and I was ignorant when it came to weight training. I wanted to remain dedicated and transform my body, and I wanted to look ripped like the women I saw in the fitness magazines.

How I Did It

I never really knew proper form or even what exercises to do when it came to weight training throughout my teen years. It wasn't until I was 23 that I decided to get a membership at Goodlife and set up a personal training appointment. This gave me the motivation to get started and continue learning about the wonderful world of weightlifting/bodybuilding.

I Wanted To Remain Dedicated And Transform My Body.

I kept asking questions and working out with people that would give me tips. I managed to get enough courage up to start working out alone and continued to excel in the weight room. People now know that the gym is part of my daily life. I workout 5-6 times per week and that I won't skip a workout unless I am really ill. It can be difficult working as an RN, shift work, but I manage to get to gym no matter what. Learning proper nutrition has helped me as well.

Diet

I follow the Anabolic Diet, less than 30g carbs throughout week mon-fri and carb-up on weekends. I find this diet has worked for me and I do not have the ups and downs in energy like I did with a moderate carb diet.

Suggestions For Others

Stick with a plan. Re-evaluate your plan often. Have positive thinking and when you are losing your motivation, take step back to try and understand the reason why you are losing your motivation. Take time out for yourself, you deserve it when you are giving your all while in the gym. Bust your @ss, work now and play later!

I reward myself by taking time out to relax by getting a facial, massage, or just laying on the couch with my dogs and putting my feet up after a hard days work and killer workout.
