|Transformation Tuesday with Fitness Food and Style|
How old are you and please can you share your health and fitness journey to date?I am 26 years old. My Transformation is quite unique. I have struggled with my weight my whole life. I have always had a love for fitness but never could get anywhere. I would lose a few pounds then gain them all back.
I then hit another challenge in my life. In 2003 I was a passenger in a terrible vehicle accident that left me in ICU. The vehicle rolled over 9 times going 90mph. It left me with a broken pelvis, fractured hip, broken tailbone, elacerated liver and a placenta abruption. I was 6months pregnant with my first child. They had to take him Via Emergency C-section because i was dying from internal damage. He was 3 months early and weighed only 3lbs 9oz. Now he is 9 years old and is PERFECT!! ;)
Doctors told me that the chances of my body fully recovering was slim to none. It took me almost 2 years of Physical Therapy 3 times a week and pain Management therapy but I began healing..
I have always been physically and mentally strong but I still struggled with my weight very bad. It wasn't until a year and a half ago (18) months) after I had my **2nd Child**
I finally learned the importance of eating clean and it has completely transformed me entirely. I have now dropped more than 60lbs (30kgs). I workout 7 days a week. I now love to lift. I know the importance of building muscle and Training Hard!
I have been faced with many challenges but they've made me who I am today ;)
I grew up in the country so we are lots of Healthy foods but we also are lots of processed foods as well.
What types of foods did you used to eat as a kid and young adult? What's changed since then?
Now I eat clean.. I try and stay away from heavy processed foods.. I try to eat foods that are all natural. My body is thanking me for it.
I don't watch any sports really. I love playing volleyball, basketball, lifting weights, working out and staying active. Being outside running around with my kiddos.
Do you play any sports or what sports do you like watching?
I absolutely LOVE health and nutrition!! I want to help motivate and inspire others. My "Littles "(children) make me smile as well as my wonderful Husband.
What are your interests, passion and what makes you smile?
I was so sick and tired of being Sick and Tired.
What was the catalyst that sparked your lifestyle change?
To inspire and help motivate as many people as I possibly can! To show others that it's possible!
What are some of your dreams/goals you hope to achieve over the next 12 months?
I never restrict myself of anything ENTIRELY! If I want it. I'll eat it. BUT I have to earn it first!
What tips would you like to share with my readers about your transformation?
