I�m an original member since the gym opened 2 � years ago.

I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas.

I�m single and I have one child

I wake put at 6:00 a.m. and get to work about 8:00 a.m. When I get to work there is not time to waste. I�m on an adrenaline rush until I clock out for the end of the day; yet I am not really ever off. I work out at the Femmefit class at 6:00 p.m. I make it a point to WOD at least five days a week.

My biggest accomplishment was just being able to WOD and finishing a WOD. When I walked into the box, I was morbidly obese and unsure if I could do it. I remember being so scared, but willing to try because I was tired of just going through the motions. Since being a BULL, I have been able to accomplish things I never thought I could ever do. I�ve snorkeled, kayaked, zip-lined, played basketball�Most importantly I, now, enjoy life. I�m no longer a spectator but an active participant.

It�s hard to just pick one favorite WOD or movement. I love almost all of them. I guess if I had to pick something it would be rowing. Least favorite, that�s easy. I hate burpees.

My goal is to lose 70 more pounds and, hopefully, one day compete at Boxtoberfest. A girl can dream, can�t she? LOL.

I make it a priority. It is an investment in myself. I make sure that I get my work done on time so I can get to the Box on time. Cross Fit is part of who I am now and not being in the BOX with my peeps just doesn�t feel right.

I have so many great memories here. I love the coaches. I love the difficult WODs. I love the friends I�ve made here. If I had to pick up�the first time I competed at a Labor Day event. It was when I first started. It was so difficult, but I don�t know the meaning of the work quit. I remember throwing up in my mouth and swallowing it, because quitting was never an option. I also remember Coach Jessa. She was one of my first coaches. I remember having a biggest loser moment with her and her encouraging words as she left me cry my little heart out. Sometimes, I still hear her encouraging me. She was amazing!

You can do anything you set your mind to. Your greatest obstacle is your own mind. If you can get out of your mind, you can accomplish anything.
