This lady has it going on! Check out her full interview below.
What type of activities do you do to stay fit?
Hike, move a lot, fire dancing, dancing around the house. Squats, crunches, lunges, home circuits
What do you think is the key to a healthy lifestyle?
Know what your body likes. You are what you eat so eat clean and healthy. Learn to cook if you don’t know how. You will love it and you will understand the importance of good nutrition. Laugh everyday! Spend time with people who love, admire, respect you. Loving yourself
What’s your favorite asset?
From my waist up! I have my flaws but I work on my bottom. I’ve been slacking lately so need to get back to it 😉
What is your LEAST favorite workout? But why do you still do it?
BOTTOM! It’s so hard to get my legs and butt in shape so it takes a lot of work. I don’t like exercising but I know I need it in order to look the way I want to look but also for my body to work properly. It’s hard work but oh so worth it.
If you had to choose any healthy meal or snack what would it be?
GUACOMOLE!!! homemade, I can eat it for DAYS!!!! YUMMY
We all have cheat days, what’s your poison?
sweet potato fries and regular french fries!!! I’m vegan and I eat so damn healthy sometimes I NEED TO BE BAD!!!! If I drank I’d have a beer, but I don’t so oh well
What inspires you to be healthy and active?
7 months ago I would of said, well I’m an actor and I still model so I have to. Now that I’ve become vegan because of health issues, it’s really that. I love feeling healthy, good, clear headed. When I work out I wake up happy, alert, full of energy. It’s hard to work out, but the after math and effects are amazing.
If you could give girls any advice about loving their bodies what would you say?
Love your body, admire your body, enjoy your body. There is only one of you, do you realize that? Your flaws, your quirks, your scars, birth marks. The good and what you may think is bad. It is yours, no one else has it like you do. You are fucking amazing and special. If you don’t like something and can change it than do it. BUT, only because YOU want to. No one will love and respect you if you don’t love and respect yourself. It’s a life journey, so enjoy the ride. Oh, and dance around in your underwear.. ❤ 😉
