this whole week we will be answering a question from reader abby mcintier who asked: "any tips on how to lose a bit of weight while nursing?" and we are soooo lucky because we have a fantastic personal trainer (and hot mama of super cutie cohen) to help not only abby but all of us get healthier and i am certian crazy motivated! alanna is only 22 and is busy, busy! she is working on her physical education degree so she can teach high school gym, and she competes in figure competitions --where she just won her pro card so now she can win $$!-- i honestly did not understand the difference between alanna and a bodybuilder, but thanks to wikipedia we will end any confusion: "The competitors are judged solely on symmetry and muscle tone, with much less emphasis on muscle size than in bodybuilding. Figure competition is a good option for women who want to compete, but without building the extreme muscle needed for bodybuilding." so, she is beautiful (and a fitness model) and not at all scary-looking! alanna's dad was a competitive weight lifter, so she has actually been doing this her whole life! i am excited, and i know you are excited, so let's do this!
