“I train five days a week, one body part a day,” says Sherlyn, who finds she can really focus in on the area she’s training this way. “I also incorporate some leg training circuits with the upper body, so that my legs get hit three times throughout the week. I finish my training session with 20 to 60 minutes of cardio.”

“My nutrition consists of seven small meals a day. I like to get all my nutrients from real food,” she says, adding that preparing and packing her meals is what keeps her on track when a tight schedule has the potential to derail her progress. “I only do protein bars or shakes on the rare occasion when I have no other option.”

“Incorporate fitness into your lifestyle and stay consistent in your training, especially in your nutrition,” says Sherlyn, who has cut processed food from her diet to keep with her clean-eating lifestyle. “Start slow and set yourself up for success. Too much, too soon can turn anyone off and it will make it harder to stick to.”

“Right now, pre-workout, I eat a chicken breast and egg-white scramble with salsa and some prunes,” says Sherlyn. “Post-workout, I have the same scramble with some oatmeal.” It’s perfect for replenishing glycogen stores – you need those carbs!
