I believe in losing weight or losing yourself. That’s so basic to me. It’s not like the weight room and the cardio machine and cardio and cardio and cardio. It’s just walking, stretching, being active.
How much do you weigh and what does a regular person weigh?
I wear a belt around my waist. I weigh about 215. I’ve always been a very active person, never been a slouch around the house. So a belt is definitely a big part of who I am.
It’s so important. It’s not about looking good, it’s about how I feel and it’s about not having no body.
I grew up in a fairly small house and we didn’t even own a lot. I was about five-foot-four and you know how when you go to the store and you buy a shoe they ask you when you bought it?
They didn’t ask my parents. I was growing up really poor and not having any money. I would go to the store, buy $10 sneakers, they put them on my feet and I’d be happy. I had to buy a bigger size so my feet wouldn’t hurt. I used to be the one making all these clothes for my sisters and brothers and they were all like, I need your new pants, no, I can’t afford new pants.
But I loved those old clothes and I loved that old shoes and jeans. They made me feel like I was really an independent person. My mom even gave me those shirts and that pants. She was like, we’re not going to let you wear those anymore, we’re going to let you wear these.
A friend of mine introduced me to the yoga and cardio class. I was trying to figure out who I would be, how did that fit? My dad was like, you’re going do all this now? That’s cool. That fits for how we grew, we all kind of got into it. The girls got into it as well and my mom started a yoga instructor course.
Do you really have a workout on a daily basis?
I’m really lazy, so I do a daily routine that consists of stretching and eating something, like if I’m on the treadmill I will do a push for like a minute and then do some stretches and do some walking. But I take a day off to relax and have some people to talk to. So I do everything I can do on the off-time
