Hey there! Nineteen years old but I don’t play the part. I’m a full-time student and work two part time jobs. One as a cashier and the other babysitting two adorable munchkins. Health and fitness is my life, and it always will be. I constantly push myself to break my own limits. The gym is my second home. I’m addicted to coffee, almond butter and sweet potatoes. I love getting a new piercing and I want my second tattoo. I’m stubborn but I’ll always listen to the other side.
I grew up competing with Extreme Air, a nationally competitive jump rope team. I stopped at age 12 and missed it terribly for years but yet never got back into it. After dealing with self-doubt for many years I developed two eating disorders that have been a part of my life since middle school. It’s been a long road and I’ve still ground to cover but I try to focus on the good and keep things positive. Each day I am finding more and more out about myself, I’m breaking into my true core values. I think it’s important to consistently work on becoming a better person.
I don’t partake in “typical teenage activities” and I hate most social realms. I enjoy coffee dates, social media, going for a nice walk, hiking, reading (a real book, no Nook/Kindle for this girl), long drives, writing, and spending quality time with friends/family!
I’ve played around with adventure racing for the past year, doing the Spartan races (Beast, Sprint and Death Race). I ran in the Peak Ultra marathon, only completing 37/50 miles, I now have a goal to complete all 50 in the year(s) to come. My training includes functional movements, body weight exercises, gymnastics, yoga, and a shitton of mobility work. I have many goals as far as my future in the fitness realm goes, and thinking about them just pumps me up. I love this stuff.
I do what I do because it’s who I am but I also love seeing the direct motivational output towards others. This lifestyle continues to teach me new things each day. I enjoy pushing my body physically and mentally. I still have my struggles, some worse than others, but one thing I have learned is that thriving feels amazing and a main goal I have is to continue thriving with my life.
I think that people need to start believing in themselves more because at the end of the day were all we’ve got. Also, helping others when nobody is looking is something everyone should do. It makes you better.
