How old are you and please can you share your health and fitness journey to date?
I started my journey as a freshmen in college. I had a rough breakup and I went to the gym one day to get
out of my apt and clear my head. I felt invigorated and alive for the first time in a long time. That
developed my love for exercise. I got certified as a fitness instructor shortly afterwards.Then after tearing
my ACL playing lacrosse I realized I needed to eat better so I started my healthy food journey. I enjoyed
learning so much about health that I changed my major to Public health education! 6 years later my
husband and I had to do fertility and the doctors told me to stop exercising and to eat more junk. It was so
hard to feel not in control but I had faith if I followed my instructions I would conceive. A year and a half
later after 3 inseminations I became pregnant through invetro with baby girl twins. I was still restricted for
the first half of my pregnancy but I always did all I could no matter what. Once I was ok'd I continued to
exercise up until labor day. My determination helped me recover fast as well. So now I am back on my
journey free to push myself to my limits and experimenting in the kitchen again. Its sooo exciting!
What types of foods did you used to eat as a kid and young adult? What's changed since then?
I use to eat cup of noodles everyday after school in highschool and when I went to collage I would eat a
PB&J sandwich and then go crawl in bed. I use to make pans of brownies all the time and eat diorites and
hamburger helper alot as well.
Do you play any sports or what sports do you like watching?
I played sports all through high school and collage and club lacrosse for BYU. Thats when I tore my knee
and my healthy food journey started. I also enjoy watching football with my hubby!
What are your interests, passion and what makes you smile?
I love my hubby and two baby girls. They bring a smile to my face everyday and remind me any sacrifice
was worth having them. I love traveling and enjoying trying new places to eat at. I am totally a foodie!
What was the catalyst that sparked your lifestyle change?
The breakup started my fitness journey and my torn ACL started my health food journey
What are some of your dreams/goals you hope to achieve over the next 12 months?
I hope to inspire other people that getting fit after pregnancy is TOTALLY possible. I to help people know
they are not alone and if they have questions they can ask. I have an instagram account where I post
healthy recipes and workouts and have started a blog to assist with anyones fitness journey.
What tips would you like to share with my readers about your transformation?
It takes work. I didn't use being pregnancy with twins to be an excuse. I tried my best every day before
they were born and after to get my fitness on and it was so hard some days. But i kept trying! Its easy to
find excuses but its hard to find solution. (my transformation photo is 7 weeks after labor)
