About

Hi! My name is Megan, I am a 32 year old female from New Jersey. I have always had a passion for health striving to be a doctor from a very early age. As an young adult I chose to pursue a career in the eyecare industry as an optical manager. As a teenager I was stick thin, with a diet consisting of whole medium pizzas and no exercise. As I got older this lifestyle no longer kept me lean and with a high obesity rate in my family as well as diabetes I knew I had to make a change.

In May 2014 I began my journey to a healthier lifestyle when I stumbled across a free trial kickboxing class at Tiger Schulmann’s that had classes that worked with my long retail hours. Shortly after I started cleaning up my diet with an introduction to the advocare 24 day challenge, which is the first time in my life I paid attention to portion sizes. I also joined the local gym and got a personal trainer and started learning how to truly workout. This sparked a passion in me that I never realized was there. By May of 2016 I got myself in my top physical condition with the help of my first TSMMA 90 day challenge. At this point I have become very comfortable with clean eating and mastered the art of meal prepping for the week.

In June of 2016 while feeling the healthiest I have in my life I received the shock of my life when I experienced what would be my first documented Multiple Sclerosis flare up leading to diagnosis in late August. It slowed my progress for a few months as I had to recover from the flare up and start treatment. Today I am challenging myself to new physical levels despite my disease, I am currently training to compete in my first kickboxing tournament and working on obtaining my personal trainer certification. I will be documenting my navigation through training at a level needed to compete and overcoming the challenges my body will face during the experience.

I look forward to sharing my journey with you all and I can inspire strength and motivation for others working through their own hardships to overcome them. Thank you for following my journey!
