After having routine blood work done, I was told I had a high cholesterol count and may need medicine. So, I decided to do something about this, and I joined Studio Fitness Elite and started working out and trying to eat better. I started to lose a little weight on my own, then had my now trainer, Dave Yeates suggest I do a figure competition. I thought "why not" it would definitely put me in the right frame of mind, discipline and training I was looking for. I started training with him and contest prep eating the week after Christmas 2010 and had a goal to be fit, ready and willing to get on stage by May 2011. Needless to say, I did not place first in my first competition, by I did win. I won a whole new body, great frame of mind, discipline and a new way of eating that will last me a lifetime of health and happiness! People are asking me all the time if I would do another figure competition, and I feel I would just to experience the journey of training all over again.
