How did you get started?
I was a high risk pregnancy due to a kidney disease that I have had since the age of 4. After 9months of pregnancy, I had gained over 70lbs after giving birth-weighing over 200lbs. I needed to lose the weight and get back in pre baby clothes! I became determined with diet and training and loved being in control of my weight loss. After I had lost all the baby weight, I knew I needed a new goal and challenge – that’s when the thought of a fitness competition came to mind.
What your diet consists of & why?
Oatmeal with a cup of berries and 4 egg whites for breakfast. A MusclePharm protein shake immediately after my workout. And lean protein, non starch vegetables, and low glycemic carbohydrates throughout the day. I chose low glycemic carbohydrates because I want to avoid insulin spikes which contribute to storing fat.
Example of Diet?
- Meal 1: 1 Cup of Oatmeal, 1 cup of berries, 4-5 egg whites.
- Meal 2: Post workout Shake- MusclePharm Cookie Dough Protein shake.

- Meal 4: 4oz. of Chicken/bison with 1/2 Sweet potato and 3oz of Veggies.
