How did your eating habits change?

As far as my eating habits, I substituted the foods I loved for healthier options. For instance, instead of eating mashed potatoes, I eat mashed cauliflower or instead of eating restaurant pizza, I’d make cauliflower pizza.
My diet consist of high protein, low fat and moderate carbs.

For breakfast, I’d have a Premier Protein Shake, boiled egg and turkey sausage patty.
For a snack, I’d have a Quest Hero Protein Bar. For lunch, I’d have Chef Salad.

For a snack, I’d have a P3 and vitamin water. For dinner, I’d have avocado stuffed salmon and green beans.

What is your favorite fitness activity?

My favorite fitness activity is is unequivocally and undoubtedly KICKBOXING. 

What do you do now to maintain your physique?

I maintain my physique by continuing to eat clean, changing up my fitness routines, defining new goals, taking my measurements and journaling my progress. 

How did you develop and sustain the willpower to avoid the bad stuff (i.e. junk food, bad drinks, lack of activity, etc.)?

Although there’s days when avoiding is more difficult than others, I develop and sustain by thinking about how far I’ve come within my journey, and how much healthier I feel. 

What advice do you have for someone looking to get started with their fitness journey but not sure where to begin?

Within this journey, I’ve learned that it comes down to ONE thing: how BAD do you want it? Your body ACHIEVES what the mind BELIEVES.
Someone once said, “when you want to succeed as bad as you wanna breathe then you will be successful”.  At this point, the advice I’d offer is, ” this fitness journey is absolutely stressful AND exhausting, however, I realize that NO ONE can do this for YOU…you have to do it for YOURSELF.
Just believe that you can do it and know that weight loss doesn’t happen overnight. I have to tell myself that everytime I don’t feel like I’m getting not much results. We have to wake up with DETERMINATION and go to bed with SATISFACTION.

What do you think is the biggest misconception about this journey?

I believe one of the biggest misconceptions about this journey is that people actually believe women that lift heavy will become ripped like men. Lol, not true. 

Do you have any fitness inspirations?  Who are they?

My fitness inspiration is @vickinosecrets, @200poundsgone, @msdollfacedolly, and plenty others.
