ABOUT ME

For anyone to take control and become stronger and healthier, despite what obstacles you think are in your way. Let’s drop all the excuses and start NOW!

about-me

When I was growing up, I was very active: Participated in sports, martial arts, and anything else that was competitive. The difference between then and now, was my eating. I mean, I would smother everything in mayo and ketchup. Ate junk food and drank soda all the time. It didn’t matter to me because I was skinny (at that time). Not everyone in my family was like that, in fact, I was pretty much the only one not being affected by that “diet”. I wasn’t strong though. I was just “skinny fat”. That went on all the way through high school which is where I thought I was good enough to join the military.

 

Initially my dream was to become a forensic scientist, then a police officer when I went through the high school police academy course in my junior year. It was there that I was told to actually going the Marine Corps in order to be chosen above all other military branches. It was there in bootcamp that I had a total and complete lifestyle change. For the first time in my life, I was told what I was going to eat (healthy), drink what seemed like 10 gallons of water a day, and going through a physical challenge for 13 weeks all day everyday.

MY TRANSFORMATION

I was skinny-fat/athletic (Always active in sports, but ate horribly) growing up, then got really over-weight after having my daughter (60lbs+), now I’m fit and healthy. Most of my life, however, when I wasn’t over-weight, I was called a “Skinny B*tch!” to my face from both thin and heavier people. And not like there’s a nice way to say it, but it was told to me with rolled eyes and aggressive tones. Like those people were mad at me. And I am not the type of person to put anyone down for how they choose to live their lives (when it comes to their health at least). I was told I was “lucky” or it’s my “genetics” and they had every reason to be upset at me for it. I remember one particular instance when a girl got mad at me for “being skinny” because I was eating a salad loaded with veggies for lunch, and she was eating fried chicken….Really?! You’re mad at me for CHOOSING to be HEALTHY? Not once did I say anything to her, or even smirk at what she was eating. I see a lot of women (and men do this too), quickly put down a fitness enthusiast for looking the way they WANT to look like, but feel … I want to say, threatened. Correct me if I’m wrong, or let me know what it is that you’re feeling. Putting someone else down isn’t going to change your situation, and it’s only going to temporarily make you feel better, or temporarily distract you from your real issues.

Now, I can only speak for myself here, because only I know my heart and thoughts, and I never post or say anything that intentionally puts people down who aren’t at the health level they want to be. I worked so hard and changed everything I knew growing up about eating. So it isn’t genetics, or the way I was raised, or luck. It was a CHOICE. I decided I WANTED to change, so I did. It’s POSSIBLE. YOU CAN start NOW. No matter how old or young, what background you have, or what level of fitness you are at now. It’s possible to live the life YOU want ❤

I’m working on my own programs at the moment (finally ????. Lol) But check out Frank Medrano body weight workouts on his site if you’re wanting to make a change for yourself and don’t know where to start. I have the privilege of seeing some amazing transformations that it has done and it has inspired me to create my own to help anyone
