Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Dana Chaney 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?

Set small goals for yourself. Challenging your mind, body influences how you live your life. Lay your clothes out the night before, set an alarm and wake up telling yourself you have an appointment with yourself you can’t miss. Buddy up if you need extra motivation and encourage each other. Be honest with yourself about the food you consume. Keep a journal and see what goes on with your eating patterns for a week. Make adjustments as needed. Meal prep and plan to take your lunch to work.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Working out makes me feel confident and happy. It’s a mood booster and time I get to spend on myself. I can’t take care of others unless I take care of myself first.

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

I would save some, invest in myself and make sure all of my fitness certifications are renewed, take a fitness related vacation and build my dream home gym.
