AND GOD

“I have proven to myself that it is never too late to go for your dreams.” What is your training routine like? I typically work out 4-5 times per week. I have had those weeks where I only get in 3 workouts and it kills me, so I always make up for it by eating extra-extra clean, drinking lots of water, celery juice and coconut water. I love HIIT cardio, jump rope, resistance bands, free weights, running, kickboxing, and pilates. There are a few moves for my core that I generally stick to but most days my routines are spontaneous and I don’t assign certain workouts to certain days. I do make sure however, that I work my core at least 3 times per week, I do cardio twice per week and incorporate a mix between resistance and HIIT on other days. What’s your diet like? I am vegan…ish? I started eating fish 1 to 2 times per week starting in April after being vegan for about 10 years and being vegetarian for about 3 years prior to that. I don’t incorporate any other animal products or by-products in my life, clothing and personal care included. I eat very clean, almost exclusively whole foods (not the store lol!), mostly organic, I seldom eat oily or fried foods, I am also mostly gluten-free, no processed sugar, I avoid certain vegetables and fruits for digestive health, very low sodium, no concentrated juices…you get the idea…Basically Gwyneth Paltrow would love having me in her kitchen. What mistakes did you make when you first started as a model? Oh man, too many to count! I would say though, that the biggest ones that stick out was: 1) Not understanding that just because I liked modeling a certain way, didn’t mean it was the best 10 10 - FRESH MAGAZINE

type of modeling for me or the best to progress my career. I wasted so much time shooting things and putting myself out there in ways I thought would be progressive, when I really should have just been myself. 2) Stretching myself too thin financially, to shoot with photographers who promised to get me into PlayBoy (yes, don’t yell at me that I fell for this). 3) Listening to other’s too much about what direction is best for me when I first started getting involved with agencies. Professional feedback is welcome, as I said earlier: I love it; but when people try to douse who you are, or intend to change you into someone who you’re not or make you feel as if your worth is based on a small flaw, it’s time to move on and find the people who will love you as you are and uplift you to be a better version of that. Which part of your body do you like most? I love my abs! I’ve very proud of them and I should be because still having a 6-pack even after getting a food baby isn’t easy to get.! What’s your favorite cheat meal? My favourite cheat meal has changed frequently because I love so many different foods. Right now its between Yucca Fries with Guac (go look these up if you haven’t heard of them) and Vegan Pizza. Either is always finished off with some dark chocolate coconut-cream ice cream.
