Unit: ADOS 42d MDG
Time in service: One Year, Nine Months

Q: Tell us about your background in fitness.

A: I have always enjoyed working out, but to do it and to think how I can make a difference in someone's life one day really turned up the motivation.

Q: What was your previous fitness assessment score?

A: 100

Q: What did you do to prepare?

A: I do CrossFit along with running.

Q: What did that involve?

A: Running to build my endurance, as well as various CrossFit exercises.

Q: Did you do as well as you hoped?

A: My run time was not as fast as I would have liked.

Q: What was your nutrition like during this time?

A: I usually eat healthy foods with lots of protein.

Q: In your opinion, how would you describe a balanced diet?

A: Lean meat, fruit and vegetables, Greek yogurt and parts of the paleo (hunter-gatherer) diet.

Q: What are the challenges of shift work when it comes to staying healthy?

A: Waking up at 0430 to work out before heading to the office was difficult at first. My co-workers do not like the smell of the egg whites I eat for snacks, either.

Q: What other factors do you feel were important to your success?

A: Having people inspire and encourage me. My husband is my biggest supporter.

Q: Any last words of advice?

A: Find someone to hold you accountable. Also, make it fun, not a chore.
