    I love working out <3 especially

    since my little one was born, I want to be a good role model for him. You can tell him to stay active and eat healthy when you aren't even doing the same thing!

    My Mantra

    "I AM AN ATHLETE!" is my mantra at the gym. When I feel tired or don't want to do anymore although I'm only 1/2 way through. I will just start saying "I'm an athlete! I'm an athlete! I'm an athlete!" and now the trainers at the gym will say it when they pass...
