  • Keep on pushing to get to look the way you want it to be!!!

    I know it’s very challenging for everyone to balance workflow, family, stress, overall life, eating well, and exercise.

    What helped me get into healthy shape and maintain it consistently was the mindset that ALL OF THE ABOVE ARE ALL EQUALLY AS VALUABLE TO MY LIFE.

    I know that with the workout endorphin’s flowing everyday, I notice that i’m more creative, my energy is strong, and i’m overall more productive in my day. I don’t leave my nutrition to chance, my meals and snacks are always planned. My workout is done prior to or directly after going to work. Emergencies will happen, but I tend NOT to deviate from my game plan. If you have to miss a workout than you have to make it up later that day or week.

    No matter what, keep dusting yourself off to get to your new lifestyle goals!!!
