“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.” Gandhi “Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.” Og Mandino "The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them"
How I Eat
I weigh and measure my food
Right now I'm pregnant with twins and work with a nutritionist to make sure I'm getting the proper nutrients and whole foods in for the babies and for me. I continue to follow a strict food and nutrition regiment and will continue after the babies are born.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I am taking a year off of competing to start our family - however, I continue to wod at CFNA at least five to six days a week and modify when appropriate to keep the babies safe. I'm lucky to train with an awesome team and coaches at CrossFit New Albany. Each coach has specific training elements which add to our success including conditioning, skill, and strength.
My Athletic Background
I have no athletic background besides CrossFit
CrossFit has allowed me to find the athlete within.
