Be Inspired by Megan!!

A former personal trainer, crazy busy nursing student & fitness fanatic 26 year old Megan is Movin’ Her A** while hiking in Mammoth!!!

A day in the life…

Megan’s day begins at 5am to ensure she gets in her workout and ends at 6:30 or 7.

“My workouts aren’t what they used to be but i still go almost every day to keep my sanity and get out my stress from school. I usually have to get up at 5 to get my workout in for the day. I start with a warm up then I usually do either a CrossFit inspired workout (gymnastics and powerlifting combo rocks!) when I am short on time or if I have a slow week with school I’ll break up my workouts by major muscle groups. I try to lift to max and not waste time chit chatting. I have fallen in love with my jump rope because it is so portable and a great cardio challenge for me. My only day off is Tuesdays because I work a 12 hour shift at the hospital and after being on my feet all day I’m exhausted. I have found that if I take my notes or a textbook to the gym, after I do my lifting I am able to stay a little longer for cardio because I’m getting work done at the same time. Haha talk about multitasking!”

Because Megan lives out of her car most days of the week her ice chest, duffel bag & PLANNING ahead completely saves her from chaos.  Megan takes one day to cook all of her food for the week, puts the meals in Tupperware & makes sure they are ready to grab.  If she misses her prep day her diet is really hard to follow.  She eats mostly a Paleo style diet described here:

“I eat mostly eggs, chicken, fish, turkey, some fruits, nuts and TONS of veggies.  I don’t eat dairy, wheat, corn, or really anything that has more than a few ingredients. My schedule right now is so hectic that sometimes I only have 15 minutes to make lunch, so if it is already made all I have to do is heat it up.  This totally saves me from having to get some nasty sandwich or something. There are so many options out there for healthy foods, it just takes a little more time to prepare, but for me its worth feeling clear headed and full of energy. I went gluten free at the beginning of the year because I was having some major problems with inflammation and it seems to help a lot. I eat pretty much what everyone else eats (pizza, pancakes etc) but I use almond flour or coconut flour, no cheese, and I make everything from scratch. I torture my poor boyfriend with all my crazy recipes but he is a really good sport!!”

All in all I LOVE my nursing program but It’s crazy, no I do not have free time but I MAKE time for exercise and I make the time to eat right because it’s worth it to me.”
