Although Lori is never easy to figure out, we sometimes have been able to reduce her to black and white, when we can get her to sit stll. Here is a somewhat formal but beautiful photo shoot from the not to distant past. Enjoy.
There is a great interview with Noemi here where she talks about how she got started doing competitions.
“When I was a teenager I use to read a lot of fitness magazines and I would admire the physiques that were displayed in them. So I guess my main motivation came from wanting to look like these amazing athletes.”
She talks about her workout routine and supplementation.
“I prefer higher intensity interval type cardio, but occasionally I also do 40 minutes of cardio at a steady pace. Both do work although interval sprints are much more fun whereas normal cardio can get a little boring.”

I was left with an above knee amputation on my left side and severe damage to my right hamstring and gluteus maximus. My doctors told me I had to change my hobbies (sports) and my career goal (a Physical Education teacher).
