Chris Wolfe - Bikini Competitor. A Mom of 5!

I was always an athletic girl in high school. After high school, I settled down and started my now BIG family. After about 9 years and a divorce, I found myself pregnant with my 5th baby and almost 230lbs. I had high blood pressure and was wearing a size 18 jeans. I would just say "oh your pregnant so you are suppose to be big." In all reality I was big even when I wasn't pregnant. The day I gave birth to my 5th baby is when something snapped with me. It was supposed to be one of the happiest days of my life giving birth to my son, but I was unhappy with how out of shape I was and how I had let myself go over the years.

I immediately started to diet and just tried to be more active. I set a goal to get down to 180lbs (my pre pregnancy weight). I reached that goal fairly quickly. On the day of my oldest sons 8th birthday party I sat at Chuck E Cheese feeling pretty good about myself since I had just met my goal weight. I was talking to a family member about how I should enter a bikini competition. I will never forget their response of "Oh honey your days of looking like that are well over with". Little did they know this just fueled my fire.

About 5-6 months later I had lost a total of 100lbs. It's been 4 years since I started this journey. I have lost a total of over 120lbs. I always tell everyone this is just the beginning for me. I can't tell you how hard it was and how many times I wanted to give up. I wanted to do this for my kids. I wanted them to look up to me and think of me as a strong, independent woman. I want them to know that anything is possible and it doesn't matter what people say about you. If you set your mind to it you can achieve great things.

Diet: I am a very big CLEAN eater. I very rarely have non clean meals or eat fast food. I crave the fast food but I know that my body will "freak out" if I eat it lol. I always tell everyone "that when I'm done with prep I am going to binge eat Reece's candies," but it never happens. hahaha!!! My normal everyday diet is 100% clean no matter if I am prepping for a show or if I am in off season. I do love variety with my diet. I will eat different things just as long as it's clean and it's approved by my nutritionist. When I am in prep I will eat anywhere from 1500-2000 calories a day... depending on how far out I am. When I am trying to build muscle I will eat between 2000-2200 calories a day.

I love to eat and my body loves carbs. But the one thing diet wise that didn't work for me was having protein shakes as my mini meals through out the day. When I did this I found that I dropped way to much weight and I got to skinny. My body does a lot better with 6 big meals a day and no mini meals.

Training: 5-6 days a week I wake up at 4:30 am and do 30-40mins of HIIT fasted cardio. After my cardio I will make breakfast for my kids and drop them off at school. I run home real quick eat my breakfast and them I'm off to go lift at the gym. I will lift 6 days a week. I always will do a glute circuit at the end of my work out. After I get the kids from school I will head back up to the gym and practice posing. We want our gym time to be family time also. So while I am practicing posing our kids are in Brazilian Jiu jitsu classes at the gym with me.

Building self-confidence: I still struggle with this. As a mom to 5 I find that I am constantly judge by other moms, but right before I step on stage I always tell myself "that I am doing this to inspire other moms and to show them that anything is possible. I want other moms to fill comfortable with their body and be proud of it."

I find that the last two weeks of prep are probably the easiest for me. I do not really cut a lot of my carbs out so I am not really carb deprived. I am more anxious then anything. I am an extreme planner and very OCD with having everything packed, hotels booked, hair/ nails appointment's made. This definitely helps a lot. On the day of my show I am the happiest person. Of course we all want to win. But I already feel like a winner just being able to compete. I had so many people tell me that I could never do this or that I would never be skinny enough. It is very rewarding for me knowing that all my hard work has paid off and I can do it.

When I come home from my competitions I always let my youngest daughter play dress up with my competition jewelry, heels and medals from the show. She tells me "that she wants to be just like me." I lost all of my weight and started competing to inspire other moms and to show my kids that anything is possible. When my daughter tells me this I know that I am on the right track. Being my daughters role model is one of the best feelings a mother can have.

Future plans: I offer online training to help people reach their fitness goals. I love to see my clients reach their goals and how happy they are when they have gained self confidence. Not only do they get stronger physically but mentally. My future plans are to continue modeling and competing. I would love to get my pro card one day.
