My passion for health and fitness began in 2006 when I was eating a huge Mexican dinner for my 23rd birthday… At 5 ft tall and 135 lbs, I felt disgusted with myself after polishing off a large restaurant meal (that was realistically enough food for at least 2 people!). After leaving the restaurant, I turned to my boyfriend (who is now my husband) and told him that I knew I needed to make a change. From that day forward, I was determined to eat better and exercise.
Fast forward to 2007…after a year of healthy food choices and regular exercise, I was 30 lbs lighter and had become a certified Spinning instructor.
I currently live in Massachusetts and work for a healthy food company. And, I became a mommy in March 2009! But, unfortunately, I no longer have the time to spend at the gym. However, that hasn’t stopped me from being active and continuing to make healthy choices when it comes to my meals. I make use of small dumbells, exercise videos, outdoor walks/runs, and my Spinning bike. I am striving to stay fit and healthy not only for my well-being, but also to set a good example for my daughter as she grows up.
