Mommy to Machine

I came across an interesting story this evening while waiting for my Video Blog to upload. Coincidentally it really suits the tone of my posts since i have been discussing transformation stories.  She goes by the name of Siliana Gaspard she is a mother of one, 25 years old and a sponsored athlete with one of the worlds leading nutrition brands Optimum Nutrition, But she didn't always look as amazing as she does below. Listen to her story with its really motivating.

'' After the birth of my son I decided that I wanted to get into shape. I had gained a relatively normal amount of weight during pregnancy – about 40lbs) but it was still bothersome for me to be considered “skinny fat.” So I decided to take things more seriously and hire a Personal Trainer. Naturally he had me lifting heavier weights and once I saw the results I was hooked. I decided in May 2011 that I wanted to compete in my first NPC show, the Branch Warren Classic, which was in July 2011! Needless to say, I kicked my butt into high gear and placed 2nd in my class. After that I loved the high I got from competing. I then entered the Dallas Europa 2011 and won Overall Bikini, then went to North American Championships in Cleveland where I placed 3rd. Returning home, I again took Overall at the Texas State, crowning me Miss Texas Bikini 2011. My 2nd pro card attempt was at Team Universe where I placed 4th. I entered the Texas State again to defend my title, and did so by winning the Overall, defending my title and being crowned Miss Texas Bikini 2012 ''

                                                          Before and After

I really enjoyed Reading her Interview with she included her most effective workout plan, Check it out and see what you think. Below she discusses what works best for her.

The workout routine of “listen to your body.” If its Leg day but your legs are still sore – then don’t train them! I listen to my body and evaluate myself on a daily basis to see what needs improvement, what needs mass and so far it’s been working. Every now and then I switch it up constantly so that my body never stays stagnant and I am always progressing.
