PumpUp member and NPC Bikini Competitor @sandylieu is making major waves with her goals for 2015. She shares about her exciting new job and her best advice for healthy living. Check out her blog here.
Even though January just started, I can’t help but feel that I need to DO MORE. The start of the month has been nothing but amazing and I’m ecstatic to announce that I’m now working with Nutrex Research, Inc.
Best of all, I’m doing what I LOVE. I love teaching/educating. Believe it or not, I used to be a 3rd grade teacher.
What do I actually do for Nutrex? Simple: I run the West Coast (no big deal, right?). I educate business owners, consumers and make sure supplement stores, gyms, etc. are stocked with Nutrex products. I also make sure supplement users understand what they are putting into their bodies. Everyone is different and just like food, one ingredient may work for you but may not work for the other. In order to determine that, I like to find out what your goals are first and from there I will find the right supplements for YOU. But of course, before I even recommend supplements, whole foods are ALWAYS always the way to go. You cannot lose weight by taking supplements. You lose weight by proper exercise and nutrition (whole foods).
Supplements add further nutritional value to (supplement) the diet.
When I first started my fitness journey back in 2010, I had no clue what I was doing. But how did I learn?
Internet essentially provides access to free education. Given that there are so many different articles and sources of information on the web, however, it’s hard to separate truth from fact. Here are my favourite blogs that have personally helped me throughout my journey:
I love PumpUp’s blog because every blogger on this page is just like US. Normal human beings with a goal and a vision… a vision to be better.
My goal this year is to help you guys grow as a person and to be happy with the body you were given. With so many coaches/teams out there nowadays, and the competitive world growing, it gets overwhelming. I know. I’ve been there. I’ve made mistakes. But the key is to not let that drag you down.
Leanne is the sweetest person ever and comes up with the most amazing recipes! She’s been through it all and has a recipe for any type of food sensitivity.
A lifestyle blog. Pure FUN! Lauryn is so gorgeous and her writing style is unique. She makes you want to keep reading. You’ll see…
Appreciate every experience because this is how we grow. Find what makes you happy. If you want to eat that donut, do it. Just make sure you burn it off. How? Just…
Find out what you physically like to do. I love aerial fitness, running, spinning, and throwing heavy weights around in the gym ;). You don’t have to be inside a gym to accomplish your goals. Hiking is amazing too! If you have a hard time looking for new activities use Yelp. I think I use yelp as much as I use Google.
My top 5 goals for 2015 are:
- Build my CutieBootyFit brand
- Start Vlogging
- Takeover the West Coast with Nutrex
- Turn IFBB Pro
- Travel Internationally
What are your goals?
