What’s Your Diet and Workouts Like?
I’m all about balance, most of the time my macros equal out to 40% protein and 30% of each carbs and veg. I like to hold the carbs back for beach season though. I don’t do diets per say and although I do monitor my calories, If I go over them I’m not gonna cry about it either.
After 10 years, of restrictive dieting for competition, I refuse to seriously limit myself for anything. Abs are way overrated and take way too much effort and enjoyment out of my life, especially after age 35! Been there done that, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want you to have them!
I’m huge advocate for eating fresh, healthy and wholesome foods. I eat an abundance of plants, but also love my proteins too – no I’m not a flexitarian. I eat organic when possible and avoid food nasties like preservatives and sugar! That’s not to say I don’t enjoy my treats – cause I do! Kale in one hand, Martini in the other.
As for my workouts, I certainly don’t lift iron like I use to. Nor do I have any desire to either. I train for function and health these days. I lift weights to keep my curves tight and my body fit.
I also like a good challenge, so I took up Muay Thai and boxing three years ago, and although I’ll never be a fighter, I certainly feel a lot more like Wonder Woman, what a confidence booster! Not bad for over 40!
