“What does a day of healthy meals look like for you?”
I eat whole foods such as fruit, vegetables, lean protein and filling carbs. We try to cook at home 95% off the time and treat ourselves when we eat out. My protein smoothie is a staple for breakfast. I’ll have two additional meals and a couple of snacks, like greek yogurt, fresh fruit, chopped veggies and hummus, or a favorite protein bar throughout the day. I keep my HydroFlask by my side 24/7!
“What is your workout routine like in Raleigh?”
I’ve been athletic since I was a child, so staying active as an adult is important for me to feel whole and happy. I’ve tested and tried practically everything in the last 5-6 years (heavy weightlifting, crossfit, pilates, swimming, running, power walking, boxing, Pure Barre, P. Volve, Barry’s Bootcamp, cycling) and have ultimately come to realize that, just like nutrition, exercise is not one-size-fits-all.
I find myself always returning to running as my main source of cardio, with power walking and machine cardio (elliptical, etc.) peppered in. I’m also much more fond of lighter- and body-weight workouts because they feel so great on the body.
