Blog: Boobs, Barbells, and Broccoli
Motto/Inspirational Quote? My favorite poem is Invictus by William Ernest Henley. I particularly love the following lines of the poem “In the fell clutch of circumstance, I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance, my head is bloody, but unbowed.
What is your favorite way to workout/exercise MOVE! I absolutely love love love lifting weights. There’s something about walking into the gym and picking up dumbbells, barbells, plates, etc that just makes me happy!
What is your #1 indulgence? Aside from the occasional treat, how do you substitute it? My number one indulgence is marshmallows. I don’t know what it is but I just can’t get enough of them. Peeps, chocolate covered marshmallows, plain marshmallows, gimme gimme gimme! Since this is a treat that is ridiculously high in sugar, I have it once in awhile and limit the amount I consume.
What’s your go-to snack? I don’t really snack but my favorite go-to meal is tuna, 1/4 cup of brown rice, 1/4 cup of lentils, and 2 T of olive oil all mixed together with a couple of dashes of cajun seasoning – yum!
What advice do you have for those starting on a fitness journey? It’s all about baby steps. Small changes when added up make a huge difference so keep that in mind when you’re not seeing results as fast as you would like.
Bucket list destination/race/to-do? I would love to compete in Figure at the Arnold Amateur one day!
Favorite inspirational fitness personality/trainer/idol? Erin Stern, IFBB Figure Pro
What workout apparel is your MUST have? I love my X2X Clothing tank tops (they’re cut perfectly for girls with wider backs)
What do you wish you knew years ago that you know now? I wish I had known how much fun it is to push yourself in the weight room – that iron can be a girl’s best friend 🙂
