What is your motivation?
I started to seriously workout seven years ago after my
daughter was born. I had put on weight before and during the pregnancy.
Once I got to my pre-pregnancy weight I have strived to maintain it. I
have a horrible sweet tooth and when I exercise regularly I find it helps
with the cravings and I am more conscious of what I eat.
Who/What has influenced you and why?
I grew up the only girl with eight brothers and so I was
quite the tomboy. My brothers were always active in sporting events and
they influenced me to play sports as well. In addition my husband Brian
