Personal Information

I’m a 40 year old mother of 2 children: Paige, 14 & Blake, 11. I’m proud to say I’ve been married to my husband, Greg, for almost 18 years! I am a Registered Nurse in Labor & Delivery and love my job!

Transformation Info/Accomplishments

Just under 6 months ago I was at 22% body fat & today I am at 11% & I’ve lost about 12 pounds! Most of my clothes are now way too big, which is such a good problem to have!

I think what has been most effective for me is planning ahead & food preparation. On Sundays, I look at my work schedule & the kids’ activities for the week and decide then which days will be weightlifting, cardio, & rest days. Once its on the calendar, I treat my workouts like any other important appointment. I also spend time once or twice a week preparing food in bulk: grilling chicken breasts, roasting veggies, steaming rice, chopping veggies for omelets, etc… Its so much easier to make a healthy choice when the good stuff is right there, ready to be eaten!

I’m thrilled to be featured right here on Julie Lohre’s site and as a cover model for the Fitbody News Magazine! Last fall, as I was contemplating contacting Julie Lohre, I read many of the other success stories and testimonials on her website. I had a hard time believing that I could ever look like any of these amazing women. It was so inspirational to see that many of them started out just like me! I’m so happy I took the leap & contacted Julie Lohre.

I’ve competed in 2 shows this Spring:

NANBF Northeast/Southwest Classic
1st place–Masters Bikini
3rd place–Open Bikini, Tall
3rd place–Novice Bikini, Tall

NPC Natural Indiana
7th place–Masters Bikini
10th place–Open Bikini, Class D

What do you love most about fitness?

I have grown to really enjoy weightlifting. I actually look forward to it! It feels so empowering to be a strong, confident, healthy woman! And the big muscle pump after lifting–I’ll never get tired of that!

Favorite Exercises?

I love Front Squats!

Best part of working with Julie Lohre

I love that Julie Lohre personalizes my exercise & nutrition plans so specifically just for me! I feel like she knows my body better than I do! She always asks me if I have enough to eat, if I have enough energy, etc… Her reassurance & encouragement that I was on the right track would boost me up every time I started to worry that I wouldn’t be stage-ready in time.

Worst part of working with Julie Lohre

That I do not get too see her everyday!

Favorite clean eating food or recipe.

Peanut butter & jelly with natural peanut butter, sugar-free jelly, & 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s 35 calorie whole wheat bread.
