I recently cut out whey and eggs from my diet in attempt to clear up an outbreak of acne, (embarrassing). But hey, you can’t have it all. So today my main source of protein comes from ground turkey, chicken, lean red meat, and I also like to add tofu and a plant based protein powder to my oatmeal.
My favorite carb other than my rolled oats is by far sweet potato. My other carbs consist of brown rice, quinoa and black bean pasta which is also another great source of protein.
I am always munching on whole almonds for fats. I also enjoy a big serving of salmon the night before a good leg day.
I do know roughly what my calorie intake is and should be during different phases of the training season. During competition prep my calorie intake is around 1,300 at its lowest, though right now during off-season and with goals of gains, Lots-O-Gains, my intake is well over 2,000.
“To me, each muscle group is just as important as the next. I try to put 100% into every exercise.”
The relationship I have with squats is love/hate, though they are one of my favorite exercises. Recently reaching my goal of 45s on the squat rack was a milestone for me. Other than legs, I love me some great shoulder and bicep work. Though truthfully I couldn’t pin point an all-time favorite exercise. To me, each muscle group is just as important as the next. I try to put 100% into every exercise.
I feel my most impressive body part might be my shoulders. This paired with a tiny waist will do great for future Figure divisions. Second to that might be the booty though during my last competition prep, I lost most of it. This is something I am improving on by hitting those 45s on the squat rack.
THE CLOSE-UP COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING SENTENCES…
Dinner and a movie … is a perfect night. Honestly, anything involving food sounds like a blast to me.
Tattoos… are an art form and a beautiful form of self-expression when tastefully done.
One thing on my bucket list… is an extended stay at a monastery with monks in Thailand.
Something most people don’t know about me…I was quite shy growing up though I always had dreams of becoming some type of model. At 17 I was in a horrible car accident which after reconstructive surgery left me with many metal plates and screws in the left side of my face. It took years for the swelling and scar tissue to subside. I thought for sure this would put an absolute end to any dreams of modeling or even being in the spotlight. This was my biggest insecurity. Most people would never know this considering how comfortable I am, not only on stage, but in front of the camera as well. Learning to accept and love yourself for who you are allows you to overcome fears that have kept you idle for years.
“The next time I will be seen on stage will be in a Figure division.”
What is next for you? As I mentioned, I have goals of gaining a good amount of muscle mass. The next time I will be seen on stage will be in a Figure division. Along with continuing my competition career, I hope to land more modeling gigs in the fitness industry and become a person of motivation and inspiration.
