Hi, my name is Annette. I live in Northern California and have a very active lifestyle. I work full-time and participate in many hobbies that put a strain on my non-work hours. However, I continue to push hard to reach my goals and encourage others to be more active and eat better. I am 41 years old and I began my fitness journey in October 2015. Since then I have lost 14.8% body fat, approx. 4″ in my waist, and gained a significant appreciation for going that extra mile. I not only love how I feel, but I love sharing my journey with others. I meal prep weekly and make an extra effort on weekends. My weekend hobbies include drag racing & photography, which means I am not close to a kitchen or otherwise “healthy eating” options 99% of the time. I have to make the extra effort (because its important to me), to meal prep for these days and stay focused and dedicated to my fitness goals. I will participate in my first fitness competition this year and I’m so excited!
