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

For me, running helps me mentally decompress from life’s stresses. But I love how strong I feel after lifting weights and strength training! And eating foods that are healthy and enjoyable is how I keep my nutrition on the right path while feeling satisfied. What can I say an avocado a day keeps the doctor away! Find what makes you love living the healthy life! If it’s enjoyable then it’s sustainable.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Consistent exercise and healthy nutrition really helps with the stresses I experience as a single mom and a mom of TRIPLETS! Life can be crazy but making sure I find the time to workout keeps me sane and happy knowing I did something good for me. Plus my kids benefit from that reduction in my stress levels.

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

If I were to win Ms Health I would definitely want to help the Triple Trouble college fund - a major stress reliever in and of itself! And of course we are going to Disney so a little to add to the fun of the vacation!
