- Three Adjectives: Determined, true optimist, loyal
- Advice: Be adaptable…. change is part of life so learn to embrace & welcome change of any kind, into your life.
- Weekend: Family time, recovery time & movie time!
- Favorite Exercise: SO many… Legs – Canadian Deadlift because I love the stretch & the burn. Upper body – Pullovers – great stretch and hits SO many muscles (core, arms, chest, upper back)
- Favorite Bombshell Recipe: Several but currently – Mug cake – eggwhites, protein powder, coconut oil, Such a treat!!
- Who Inspires me: Shannon Dey, other coaches, my clients…. i am drawn to and respect anyone with a DRIVE, hard work-ethic, that never say die attitude!!
- How do I push through: I am constantly listening to, reading, watching positive, motivational information. There is SO much negative “junk” around us and I intentionally put “good” in to offset the negativity coming at me. I like to listen to Podcasts (Shannon has some really great ones, Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyers, Andy Andrews ) Search YouTube to find hundreds!
- Motivation: I do work good under pressure SO I create deadlines for myself. I still compete so that is a deadline or other times I will sign up for a run or schedule a vacation… anything to create the timeline which works for my brain/personality
- Guilty Pleasure: Red wine and Chocolate!!
- Favorite Quote: If it’s worth your time, It’s worth doing right. Norbert Kruse, my Dad
- Favorite workout song: I don’t have one… I need different music for different workouts and depends on the day. When I’m moving slow I put on a fast driving beat because I tend to stay on the beat. I love FitRadio for this because you can select the Genre, select the Beats per minute or chose by activity. I highly recommend this App!!
- I come from a BIG family of 7 brothers & sisters, 24 nieces and nephew and FAMILY is everything to me!! Bombshell is my extended family!!
