I love Caribou coffee. I make it a habit every day to go there and have some alone time and read. When I’m not cutting weight, I love trying new exotic foods. I’m a tomboy and girlie girl all in one. I love being in the outdoors and fishing and camping, but I also love getting my mani/pedi and facial.
I’ve been intrigued by fitness since I was in 6th grade. I grew up watching my dad be a health nut. He was always into martial arts and bodybuilding. I realized after picking up a dumbbell a few times that I grew muscles pretty quick. I was addicted to the results and have dedicated my life to health and fitness ever since.
Oh boy, lots and lots of variety. I take it back to old school Motown like The Platters and The Box Tops to 80s rock like Motley Crue, AC/DC, Poison and all the new artists like Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Kings of Leon. I just love music. It makes me happy. With music I can do anything.
