WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHEAT FOOD:
Licorice once I start I can't stop, so I usually just try to stay away from it.
WHO IS YOUR BIGGEST MOTIVATOR:
Myself by far. I am harder on myself than anyone ever could be on me. I have been a very independent person from early childhood and as far back as I can remember I've always motivated myself, not needing to rely on others has been very helpful but also can distance you from people without you realizing.
Actions speak louder than words
AMBITION IN LIFE:
To achieve success in more than one area of my life; I'd like to have a family and a successful career and not let either suffer. To surround myself with positive people and positive actions. To never stop learning something new in a different area - getting out of my comfort zone regularly. To challenge myself to grow.
To perform to the highest standard as I compete. (competitions). To promote health & fitness (lifestyle). To enjoy life and what it brings (personal).
To give myself 100% chance of meeting my goals through determination, hard work, persistance and personality.
Actions speak louder than words.

People put themselves above everyone else - after all we are all human, we all live and we all die.
Wasting time...... Life is too short - live every moment of it to its potential and NEVER compromise your true inner beliefs.
Do what is right for YOU and do it NOW.
Make yourself happy as your number one priority.
Don't waste a minute more procrastinating on what you Could do.
As Nike said "Just Do It".
