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

Create a contract! Thats right, a contract to yourself. This is where self love comes into play too, so grab a pen and a notebook! Start by writing down your goal, or goals. Next, your WHY!! What makes you want this goal so badly?! Below that, your MOTIVATION!!! Think hard, what will you need to hold yourself accountable for. Will it be self motivation? A coach? A workout partner? What type of motivation do you need!! Now that your goals and strategies are documented, get to work.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I have discovered what ignites my passion through fitness, and I now know what my purpose is. Back In 2012 I was diagnosed with Endometriosis. So that is when lifting weights became a passion of mine. Fast forward a few years later, Mya was born. Now I get to lead by example, workout with my mini & show her that anything is possible. It has given me awareness on how good it feels to take care of our bodies. We eat better, sleep better, have more energy, and grow stronger.

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

Well, I would not be where I am at today without the love and support from my family and friends, especially my good friend and coach. This year his family found out some heartbreaking news that no family should ever have to hear. So I will be donating half of the winnings to his family to help out with any expenses that are needed throughout this process. And with the other half I would take my daughter to Disneyland, I hear it is the most magical place!!
