What do you eat in a typical day to stay in shape?
I am Pescatarian. Seafood is all I eat. My typical snacks usually have about under 150 calories. Such ass Apples & Almond Butter or Skinny POP Popcorn (Gluten Free). I don’t drink or eat any type of dairy, so I have meat dairy free Gluten free yogurt. I have some fruits. I snack a lot. So I make sure I eat LOTS of snacks. A typical lunch for me, I try to eat big for Lunch. So salmon or shrimp brown rice some Always ALWAYS add green into my meals. Dinner I’ll always do something light, I don’t like to eat heavy for dinner.
I used to believe in putting yourself on a diet but to be honest a diet lifestyle isn’t the way to go. A few things I had to let go in order to feel and look a certain way. I just make sure that I portion my foods and try to eliminate less or replace food that I shouldn’t eat.
How do you maintain your hair while working out?
So about a year ago I cut my hair around lower ear length, I had to cut some of the old damage burnt hair that I had. So I made a promise to myself that I would not put heat on my hair as much as I used to so if I do straighten my hair it only has to be one time. But usually my hair is either curly, low bun or high and braids.
