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

What I would recommend to others who want to be fit and healthy are consistency and to not be discouraged when results don't happen right away. Building takes time. We all want results quickly, but the most important thing is to concentrate on being healthy. The results will come.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has positively influenced my life in so many ways. I'm more confident. I've matured and learned to be strong, not just physically but mentally. I've learned discipline and self-control. It has helped me set the example for my daughter of what happens when you work hard, it pays off. It has also influenced my daughter's life, and it gives her something to be proud of. She tells everyone at her school that her mom is a bodybuilder. I'm happy that I do something that makes her proud.

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

If I were the next Ms Health and Fitness and won the $20,000, I would use $10,000 to start a College Savings Plan for my daughter and the other $10,000 as a down payment on a home for my daughter and I. Family first ❤.
