Why I Got Started

I have always been an active person my activities included mostly running events. I have run 5k's thru marathons. I was having trouble with my knees so I took some time off and kept eating like I was working out.

Before I knew it I was 167 pounds. I am a nurse so I know how important healthy habits are so I decided to have a goal.

I thought that I would try to get into shape and do a figure competition. The goal was to get out on stage in 5-inch heels (which I never have worn before) and a bathing suit in front of an audience.

My reward would be the final result. Being in shape. So, in September I started working out with a friend in her garage every morning at 4:30.

We then attended Jen Hendershott's Phat Camp in Atlanta - that's where we really got pumped up. In May the real dieting started for the competition.


Diet

My diet included for the first 4 weeks: (starting the end of May)

    Meal #1: Train and do cardio immediately after having a protein shake with ice and water
    Meal #2: 1/2 cup of oats with coffee and added chocolate protein to the oatmeal (1 scoop)
    Meal #3: 10 a.m. protein bar of choice
    Meal#4: veggie burger and 1/2 cup of veggies
    Meal #5: small salad with grilled chicken (3 oz) on it
    Meal #6: yogurt and handful of nuts
    Meal #7: 6 oz of chicken with 1/2 cup of rice and 1/2 cup of asparagus

Water- 1 gallon

5 weeks out from the competition.

1 1/4 scoop of whey protein (hydrolyzed) banana with 6 oz of ABB Carbo Force lemon lime drink with ice (great combination)
1.2 oz of oatmeal with 3.2 oz of egg whites

2.4 oz of turkey breast with 3.4 oz of white rice
1 1/4 scoop of whey protein (hydrolyzed) with 6 oz of ABB carb drink with ice
2.4 oz of turkey breast with 3.4 oz of white rice
1 1/2 to 2 gallons of water


Supplements

Vitamins included: multivitamin, Vit. D, calcium, copper and Vit. E, zinc, magnesium and potassium.

Supplements included: MuscleTech Thermoshred. For excess water used Xpel (but only for the last week).


Workout

The work out wasn't a set workout from September until May.

Tri/Bi - Monday and Thursday
Legs - Tuesday and Friday
Chest/Back/Shoulders - Wednesday and Sunday

In June the workout consisted of:

Chest/Triceps

Legs

Back/Biceps

Shoulders/Traps

Cardio 4 days per week for 30 minutes

My husband of 21 years, children (son 20 and daughter 18), family and friends were a tremendous support system and their enthusiasm is what kept me going.

It's amazing that when you do things that are healthy people watch. I have friends at work wanting to walk the stairs, drinking out of 1/2 gallon mini jugs. They are my inspiration.

My success was primarily based on my determination to be the best I could. What I got out of it was an example for others to want to live a healthy lifestyle and be active.


Advice To Others

My suggestion for others is to set many small goals that will take you to the ultimate goal. Reward yourself after you meet the small goal.

Surround yourself with others with the same type of goals and you will be successful. But most of all do it for yourself.

Thank you for the opportunity to share my experience with you. I hope that this includes all the information you needed.
