So, to let everyone know how I was inspired to start working out, I owe it all to this magazine and much of it to the lovely lady on the cover. A couple of years ago I was at the store and saw this magazine. I stopped because I was shocked to see my childhood gymnastics and cheerleading coach on the cover! Of course, I had to buy it, and from there I was hooked.
When I met with a trainer for the first time at the gym, he asked me to come with a list of goals. I showed up with this and said, "I want to look like these girls".
After working out for a couple of months people at the gym started telling me I should compete in a figure show. So here I am totally obsessed and training for my first show in March. I will be posting updates to my progress along the way.
If your interested, Julie has a fitness blog and a team she trains. Check her out here, she is quite inspiring. Since this issue I started subscribing to Oxygen and I have to say, it is a really great magazine. I read it cover to cover every month! They have a good on-line site as well with recipes, workouts and all kinds of tools for the fitness junkie like me!
