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

Surround yourself with people who motivate you, encourage your goals, start out slow, find your why, set reasonable short term and long term exercise goals, be consistent with diet changes and exercise. Hire a personal trainer to get started. Keep a food log, learn to food prep, carry healthy snack options, drink plenty of water and try to get 8 hours of sleep per night.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Being physically fit boost self esteem and helps build self confidence. When we feel more confident about ourselves we’re able to be positive role models, helps decrease stress, enhances quality of life and overall we live healthy and longer.

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

If I was to win Ms. Health I would use the money for a family vacation and college fund for my children.
