Do you think about your health?
I would be lying if I said that I have always thought about my health in the past but now I think about it all the time. From what I consume to the exercise that I put in as well.
How do you feel about the way that you eat?
I personally feel that I eat pretty “clean” some may say that I’m a bit obsessive with my food but I’ve gotten use to my own meal plan and I’m perfectly fine with it. I’m okay not eating out at fast food restaurants but I also am not obsessive over being healthy that I won’t ever have a “cheat” meal.
How active were you when you were younger and what activities did you do for exercise? Did you have P.E.?
When I was younger I was always very active. I was brought up in a very athletic family so I was always involved in sports starting from a very young age. I had P.E. the summer before my freshman year of high school and then I played basketball pretty much year round between high school ball and AAU. I never had to really worry about doing anything extra because I was so well conditioned at the time. I didn’t realize how active I really was until after I chose to stop playing basketball once I went to college.
What is your dream in life? Are you working towards that dream?
After basically transforming my ENTIRE outlook on life as far as health and fitness and just bettering myself, I wholeheartedly want to become a personal trainer. It sounds kind of surreal but I believe this is truly my calling. I want to be able to help others achieve their goals, get healthy and really just be proud of the body that they’re in. I am currently working each day towards this dream.
How stressful is your life right now?
My life isn’t too stressful, I mean just as stressful as any other recent college graduate.
How do you cope with your stress?
As cliché as it sounds, I like to workout when I’m stressed. I like to lift heavy and sweat out any pent-up stress I may have.
Do you know how to exercise properly?
Seeing as how I’m studying to become a personal trainer, I would hope to know how to exercise properly! Lol.
Do you know how to eat healthy?
Yes, even though it did take me some time. I had my experiences with the shakes and the fad diets, you know, the quick schemes. I had to reteach myself how to eat basically; I’m so glad I did.
What changes do you want to see in the health industry?
The crash diets! People need to learn that the things that advertise quick weight loss or anything of the sort usually aren’t very healthy. Yes, you may see some pounds drop off the scale but you can quickly gain all of that back once you start eating normally once again. Like I stated, people need to retrain themselves on how to eat healthy.
Do you think being healthy will ever be at the forefront in society?
As scary as it may sound, I’m not really sure. With the fad diets and get fit quick schemes, surgery…who knows? We are in an era where it’s easier to set up a consultation to look the part but people don’t even realize that you can be lean and look a certain way but still be unhealthy as ever. I would love if people would take their health into consideration the way they do other things but to be at the forefront in society…that’s a reach for now.
