My life before fitness was very fast paced and hectic. Everything I ever did revolved around work and school. I was a full-time student in my second year of Business Administration and worked pretty much full-time hours at TD Canada Trust.
It didn’t help that both of those were on opposite ends of the GTA. I also made sure to attend every event and to stay in contact with my friends and family. I was always on the go. I seriously never had time for anything but I also never thought to fit the gym in because I was already quite athletic and skinny.
Throughout high school, I was always that fun and energetic girl that loved and played sports as much as possible. I played for our high school lacrosse team from the ages of 16 to 18, and I loved it. Also, in my spare time, if I had any I used to go for runs too, but it wasn’t at all consistent.
What triggered my healthy lifestyle was a car accident I was the victim of when I was 20.
I had some really bad injuries, but the main ones were that I fractured a lot, had a severe traumatic brain injury and lost my short-term memory.
