    Personal Information

    I am a 29 year old Trauma RN.  Currently attending graduate school getting my CRNA, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist.  I am single, and no kids.  I am a very energetic, optimistic, outgoing person and I never leave home without my smile ☺

    Things I love:  GOD, my amazing family and friends, working out, bodybuilding, fitness, life, positive people, meeting new friends, traveling, learning new things, reading, movies, being in love, giving free smiles and hugs to people, being happy, food, taking pictures, foreign languages, very wide variety of MUSIC, beautiful beaches, the art of Medicine, anything with “POLSKA” on it 🙂

    What are your greatest fitness accomplishments so far?

    Losing 25 lbs and feeling absolutely fabulous (see before and after photos).   Few more pounds left to go, but with Julie’s help and motivation I know I will be able to meet my goals.

    What do you enjoy most about fitness?

    The way it makes me feel….strong, sexy, energetic, fit, and happy – I JUST LOVE IT!  Working out is the only thing that keeps me sane during my crazy busy and demanding school schedule and work.

    What are your fitness goals?

    I would like to enter in my first figure competition in March 2009.  I would like to get into fitness modeling and be an inspiration to others.

    I think it takes a lot of determination and dedication to challenge yourself to compete and actually go through with the whole process. Regardless how you place, you are a champion if you actually set this goal and succeed.

    What motivates you to maintain a healthy lifestyle?

    They way I look, the way my body feels, the overall happiness and confidence it gives me.  Being able to inspire and motivate other women out there and proving to them that if I could do it, they could too. You are all beautiful, and you deserve to feel good about yourself.  “A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step” so take that step today!  YOU can do whatever you put your mind into.

    What is the best part about working with Julie?

    She is such a sweet and loving person.  Her personality and her positive energy are so contagious.  She has a vast amount of knowledge about diet, fitness, competing, working out, etc.  She is always available and she is truly there for you.  She wants her girls to succeed.  Her accomplishments are my motivation.

    What is the worst part about working with Julie?

    Not living closer to Cincinnati and not being able to work with Julie in person every day!

    Favorite 'diet' food:

    Protein pancakes.  1 scoop ultra size vanilla protein, 4 egg whites, 1 whole egg, 1/3 cup of dry oatmeal, 1 tbs of ground flaxseed.  Topped with little bit of sugar free syrup, molly MCbutter, cinnamon, and butter spray.  I eat them everyday for breakfast, they are so delicious.  I crave them all the time!

    Any other comments or anything else you would like to share

    Often people come up to you and tell you, “oh, you are so lucky, you have good genetics, and you look good without having to have to diet!”  They think it is so easy!

    Every woman out there that has lost weight, trained for competition, or just tried to stay fit can tell you that it is NOT EASY.  It requires a lot of hard work and dedication, but it is so worth is.  Being fit, working out, and eating right is the way of life!

    “This is MY body. And I can do whatever I want to it. I can push it. Study it. Tweak it. Listen to it. Everybody wants to know what I’m on.  What am I on?  I’m on my bike busting my ass 3 hrs a day.
    What are YOU on?”
