Why did you enter the SSS contest by BuffMother?
I entered the SSS contest to attempt to get into the best shape of my life. I have done that and more as far as I am concerned. For years, I had sabotaged my body with anorexia and bulimia. I have been healthy for 7 years now. I always thought that I had messed up my metabolism for good because I could not see any difference in the saddlebags below my butt. Since I have joined the SSSS contest, I kept up with the weekly mini challenges and actually carried them all the way through until the end. I am now squatting and lunging with 50 lbs of free-weights and have seen a major difference in the saddlebags. I don’t think I ever stuck anything out until the end like I did with this contest. I loved every minute of it!

What tactics did you use to stay focused and engaged for the entire 70 days?
I made sure I had all of my protein servings planned out each day and kept track of what I ate. I made sure I ate 5-6 times per day so I would not feel hungry. Any time I wanted to cheat I would think of how great I would feel and look at the end of this contest if I didn’t cheat. It was impossible not to cheat for the full 70 days. I do have to say, this contest kept me in check. In 70 days, I only missed 3 days of workouts and cheated a few of times. I have never done that before. I have amazed myself.

How do you feel about your success?
I feel great about the way I look now and I am going to keep striving to make more improvements. My goal is to be doing 200 lunges 4-5 times per week with 50 lbs of free weights within the next month.

What obstacles did you have to overcome in order to attain your goals?
Lack of sleep. I work nights and don’t get home until after 12:30 AM most nights and the kids are up by 6. I do have to say, fatigue was my biggest obstacle, but once I got my workout done, I felt great and felt like I accomplished something. Another obstacle was my two little guys always wanting to come and workout with me in the basement. It was tough at first, but I then decided to invite them to workout with me. They have fun doing it and it makes me laugh.

  1. I have followed many of the success stories, but yours really hit home because I too have struggled with the saddlebags. I am going to focus on lunges & squats with heavier weights! Thank you for the inspiration, especially knowing you’ve done it with such a crazy schedule. Way to go!!!
