With 25 pounds lost so far, her bucket list includes training to run 5Ks, maybe even a marathon.

Who do you connect with when it comes to living an active lifestyle?
“I’m always connecting with likeminded people online. Networking is huge in the space that I am in and so is staying active and being healthy. I find myself connecting with people at the gym, grocery store or even the mall sometimes, but most of the time I enjoy working out with my trainer, my husband, some friends, or my dog”
When did being active become so important to you?
“I always struggled a lot with my weight especially throughout middle school and high school. Living a healthy lifestyle really became important to me when I found myself in a very unhealthy and low place in my life. I started my fitness journey about five years ago and have lost 25 pounds so far.”
What is your go-to workout?
“I love doing HIIT workouts! Especially when I am pressed for time. You can really get an amazing workout in just a matter of 30 minutes if that’s all you have. But also, I love the StairMaster. It’s silent, but deadly.”
What is your daily step goal?
“Daily goal for me is 10,000. I can usually get it with a little extra help like going for a run, parking a little further out at the grocery store, taking the stairs, and staying active during my workouts. I love the challenge.”
Top 3 ideas to get your steps in:
- Take your dogs on long walks.
- Park as far away as possible.
- Always take the stairs.
