Why I Got Started

After a break-up (September 2006), I realized that I had gained an enormous amount of weight and I didn’t want to be thirty-something and be fat and in poor health. There were two roads I could have traveled down, to either continue down the path I was on to further gain weight or I could take control of my diet and begin to exercise again. I knew that I had the potential to look absolutely fabulous. I just needed to set my plan into action and just do it!

How I Did It

I started off slowly by jogging two miles a day. Eventually the two miles progressed to three and then four. Two months into my exercise program I went back to the gym and began to weight train and use the cardio equipment there.

Supplements

* L-glutamine

* L-arginine

Sample Week Of My Diet

My diet is very consistent. I aim to get my nutrition and protein from whole food sources and avoid processed foods. I stick to a daily diet of approx. 1500-1700 calories a day, 4-5 meals daily:

Meal 1 (post-workout 7:30 am)

5 eggs (2 whole)

1 slice of cheese

Meal 2 (10:30 am)

1 cup 2% cottage cheese

Meal 3 (1:30pm)

4 oz. chicken breast

non-starchy vegetables

Meal 4 (4:30pm)

handful of almonds or

2 tbsp. peanut butter

Suggestions For Others

My suggestion for others is to find the drive and motivation that’s inside you and feed off it. The drive that I have comes from a time that I wasn’t feeling too good about myself and my appearance. Not only do I now have a feeling of empowerment and accomplishment, but I know I can never go back to what I had looked like a year ago. I’ve set a long term goal of eventually competing and I can’t let myself down!
