Husband, Josh Ambuehl, and two daughters, Aubrey 3 1/2 years old, and Layla 3 months
FAV WAY TO WORKOUT
HIIT workouts and lifting
FITNESS GOALS FOR THE YEAR
To work off that baby weight and tone up!
BIGGEST NUTRITION MYTH
My motto is moderation, not deprivation! Having a strict diet for five days and then having a huge cheat day to fulfill all you deprived yourself of is not the key!
I workout out at Orangetheory! The best part is that the workouts are designed and I don’t have to think of one to do! I always enjoy running outside!
IF I COULD ONLY HAVE ONE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT
I love dumbbells and TRX straps!
ALWAYS IN MY GYM BAG
A sweat towel!
MY FITNESS IDOL
My fellow coaches at OTF Lakeland.
MY DREAM WORKOUT PARTNER
My husband is someone I really enjoy working out with since it doesn’t happen that often with our girls.
MY GO-TO SNACK
Anything salty – chips!
I have celiac disease so I have to eat gluten-free. I try and stay low carb, but I’m currently breastfeeding and not watching what I eat. A few years ago I did the keto diet and lost weight but that is not a diet to sustain.
ONE FOOD I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT
WHAT KEEPS YOU MOTIVATED
My girls! I want to live a long, healthy life for them. I want to help inspire other moms – we NEED some time to ourselves and deserve it! I’m also a huge believer in working out and staying active during pregnancy if cleared by the doctor.
I struggle with anxiety, so being able to go workout for just an hour makes the biggest difference in my mood! My life is busy and we are on the go a lot with our girls and family, so I don’t always have a set time of when I can workout. Learning to continue to be flexible and fitting in any workout is a good workout
