Hello and welcome! I''m a fitness enthusiast, wife, and mom of one toddler. I have some pretty ambitious goals to: Compete in the NPC Achieve my personal training certifications Start training clients and return to teaching group fitness Right now I''m working on my own in bodybuilding and would love some support! Immediate physique goals are to finish off this cut cycle. I have about 5 lbs to go! Be my friend and help me along the way?? Thank you!!

Member Since: 4/25/2009

Fitness Minutes: 61,453

My Goals:
-Return to my pre-pregnancy weight, or within 5 lbs of it, by October 2013
Reward: NYC trip!

My Program:

-Cardio 4-6xs/week, for 40-60 minutes for a total of at least 160 minutes

-ST 2xs/week for 30-60 minutes

-Eat at least 2 servings of fruits/veg/day
-Enjoy 1800-2200 cals/day (need plenty for breastfeeding!)

-Just a note on progress: I only weigh and measure myself about every 10 days. The rest of the time I measure progress by how well I meet my mini goals, stay on track, and how I am feeling :) Keeps me more energized!

Personal Information:
I'm a twenty something married to the love of my life and the proud momma of a bouncing baby boy (literally- he LOVES bouncing on our exercise ball while I hold him!).

I love to dance, run and do pilates- and to walk the streets of strange new places. I also love reading, anything and everything. Im a popcorn JUNKIE and prefer my water sparkling and eating my grapes and peas frozen.

I was born in Costa Rica and have done 4 transatlantic moves already in my life- and Im working towards a 5th.

I hope to one day get my MDiv- and who knows?! A Dmin? PhD? The world is full of possibility.
