Super Sisters Bikini Bootcamp!

IMG_0728This January my acupuncturist told me to build lean muscle in my body as diligently as possible to combat my Crohns and PCOS, so I started on a new journey; one of strength building and pushing my body to new limits, rather than the previous 28 years of just trying to remain lean and under 140 pounds [ I’m 5’10 5’9.5 like Cindy Crawford 😉 and no, coffee did not stunt my growth]. I was so happy to get the news last night that I was selected as this year’s Bikini Bootcamp (Part 2) winner by Super Sister Fitness, LLC , a pair of sister trainer/nutritionists that I recommend to anyone pursuing optimum health. They have taught me so much about business & fitness and the importance of being persistent, consistent, positive, and resilient in both endeavors. I haven’t weighed myself in 12 weeks, and I have finally realized what a poor marker that really is for health and fitness.

You can check out my story and recent fitness journey on their blog. I’m excited to share my thoughts on the Rise Protein Bars and Health Warrior Chia Bars they are sending me as a prize! Additionally, I have free access to their Super System for Fat Burning Metabolism Program, and I will keep you updated on how you can participate along with me! Please comment below if you want to stay in the loop on my future programs with SSF.

I’m feeling the best I ever have and a huge part of that is my paleo diet and fitness regime. I still have a long journey ahead of me, but I’m excited for it and excited to build my life around it. I am so grateful to have my results and hard work recognized at this early point in my journey. In the last 2 years, I’ve been diagnosed with both Crohns and PCOS which have both had an impact on my self-esteem and body-image (along with the late twenties metabolism slow down). This program has truly empowered me, as a woman and as an athlete. We are not pretty things to be admired and held to unrealistic standards! We are strong mothers, sisters, daughters, and partners who can do ANYTHING we set our minds to.
