A key change I made towards getting the body I have was choosing to supplement with creatine. Get over the fear with this Q&A about women & creatine!Published on: Dec 11, 2007
I've gone through and am still going through the same struggles every mother experiences!
I am no different than you:
My Mission: In 2004 I founded BuffMother! to give every mother the power to believe that they can be Buff after having children!
How BuffMother! Began:
In just 4 short years I became the mother to 4 children! As you can imagine, I spent every moment of my days selflessly caring for my family and finding time for myself was impossible. I was a physical and mental mess. I was too busy to eat right and the thought of exercise was frustrating and seemingly pointless. It was then that I hit rock bottom. One day I stood toe to toe looking at my battle scarred body in the mirror: My round face, blood shot eyes, dull lifeless hair, flabby arms, fat stretched out stomach, flat butt and shapeless legs were just a shell of the "looker" I was just 6 years earlier. Who was this person in the mirror? Was I a mere slave to the needs of my family? How was I going to get the true Michelle back? It was then that I decided to prove to myself and everyone else that I could regain control of my body and my life.
With the frustration of my recent fitness failures fresh in my mind, I threw out the popular fitness routines and diets. I then designed a unique program that addressed my body's loss of shape, my malnutrition, my hormones and the time constrains now affecting me as a mother. I also learned to treat my workout as my "sanctuary time"; I found an escape from the chaos of my life and took time to focus on just me. After several months of intense workouts and fierce determination, my plan worked. I became happier, healthier, more confident, and was terribly excited about having the best figure of my life. I was now living proof that it is possible to have a beautiful figure after having children!
Invigorated by my new found life, my mission became to share hope with every mother that they too can regain their figures, enjoy their lives and leave a legacy of fitness to their children. Using my testimony as inspiration in conjunction with the methods of my unique fitness program, I founded my company BuffMother in 2004! BuffMother! now impacts thousands of mothers from all 50 states, Canada and 16 countries around the world! My mission is to help every mother by being a role model, teacher, motivator, advocate and friend.
A Word On Supplements:
In regards to my success in a figure competition world, that is filled with the use of illegal supplements: I do not use anything illegal to enhance my physique or increase my performance capabilities, I am natural! I do take some sports supplements that have been proven safe and effective for anyone to consume. Some of those include: l-glutamine, l-lysine, l-tyrosine, creatine, NO2 products, CLA, flax seed oil, St. John's Wart, caffeine, whey protein, sugar free Red Bull, Lubriflex, etc. Exactly what I take depends on how I feel and what I am trying to accomplish. There is a lot of money wasted on sports supplements that are ineffective, so do your research before purchasing anything.
A Special Note of Thanks:
I am so thankful to Jesus Christ who is my Savior and Lord. He has filled me with a love for helping others. I lean on him daily for my strength and I know that aspiring to be a light in the darkness is His calling on my life! "For nothing is impossible with God" -Luke 1:3
