Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Carolyn Fox and her voters for helping us donate to our injured United States military veterans!

What would you recommend to others who want to be fit and healthy?

Many people believe that fitness can only happen in a gym and that it's going to hurt. This is so far from the truth! You can always find an activity that you enjoy and incorporate it into your routine. You don't need to go overboard on trying to eat better, working out more, or altering your lifestyle overnight. Small steps will get you there and once you get there you will feel so good that you won't want to turn back!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Not only does it make me feel good, I appreciate my body because I know what it took to get it here. Aside from the physical benefits, I'm more motivated, disciplined, focused, organized, and knowledgeable. Fitness is a HUGE stress reliever for me, especially because my husband's career has him away more often than not. I love that I can just escape reality, have some 'me' time, and lift!! That, and I have to stay on my toes to keep up with our 3-year-old energizer bunny!!

If you were the next Ms Health and Fitness, what would you do with $20,000?

For me, making a donation to the CMHA in memory of my good friend who recently passed away was the first thing that came to mind. I would also jump on the opportunity to put some extra cash into our son's education fund. I 100% would treat myself to a StepMill and I've always secretly wanted to go on a cruise so would hope to treat our family to a fun adventure at sea! Fun Fact: I'm a crazy cat lady so would treat my cats to an insanely large indoor cat tree/house
