My Workout Philosophy View My Full Workout Philosophy
If you ain't sweatin', you ain't sheddin'!
I train six days a week. I work out twice a day on most days. I am a firm believer in doing a lot of cardio and eating a clean diet. When I work out, I need to feel the burn. If I don't, then it doesn't count. I believe more in muscle conditioning than muscle strength. Sure, it's great to be strong, but what good are your muscles if they aren't in conditioning shape?
My Nutrition Philosophy View My Full Nutrition Philosophy
I have been a vegan since May 16, 2013 and this type of "diet" works for my body. All foods that I consume are plant-based. I'm not a die-hard vegan, which means that I do consume honey and all root vegetables. When it comes to my vitamins, I do take fish oil and vitamin B-12, which is made from Lactose. Other than that, I eat nothing but plant-based foods. No eggs or any milk products.

Protein Powder and Vitamins
Yes, I do consume protein powder, but it is vegan-based. I mainly purchase pea protein, which is one of the most highly concentrated forms of vegetable protein. I try to avoid soy powder, unless the ingredients come from fermented soy, which is more efficient for your body than the typical mass-produced soy powder that is sold.
I take a good multivitamin along with other essential vitamins that is good for my hair and skin.

I Motivate Myself
When it comes to motivation, I rely on myself. I stay away from negative people and negative energy. If I need that extra motivation, I bring my phone with me to the gym and look at my boyfriend's picture whenever I feel like I can't push any harder. He's one of my biggest cheerleaders in life and he wants to see me take my fitness level as far as possible, as long as I remain healthy. :-)
