To start off, if you know me in person or have taken a look at my modeling page you know that I am thin. Sizes XS and 0 sums it up. Body fat at 12.9% at the height of 5'7" and averaging between the weight of 110-115 lbs. I do not have any health problems of any sort. No eating disorders. Perfectly healthy 21 year old women. With a body like mine, what's the point of working out some might think. Wrong. My life has always been dedicated to keeping active and in shape. As a little girl my mother told me to always keep my stomach firm. So I did, and I have never had a belly that sticks out. It is highly unflattering to yourself and others.

Did you know that belly fat is one of the worst areas for your body to store fat? I mean it is one of the risky spots that can cause health issues, that may lead to even worse problems. I will not state anyone in my family except the women in my family have always seemed to struggle with body fat. I fear for my future to end up in that way. I care for myself and others around me. I have seen and experienced what it is like to be around family members whom are over weight. It is hurtful mentally because I had no idea what was going to happen to them. It wasn't until they grew to their current size that I have the knowledge to know how to prevent that from happening. Never occurred to me anyone would be at any health risk. Growing up I had Disney animations that taught me everything works out in the end. It causes me pain when I can not do anything to help because my help is shot down by ignorance, stubbornness. Can't stand it.

Recently I have joined LA Fitness. Never thought I would ever join a gym. I have a large room and backyard. The mountains behind me, and many hills to ride & bike. Dumbbells of 2, 3, & 5 lbs., yoga mat, resistance cords, ab roller, jump rope. What more is there to ask when I have it all in the comfort of my home? But that is the thing... comfort. I am way too comfy here and having the occasional parent or dog come in to bother you does not help. Besides, I don't have a pool or sauna.

There will always be fitness in my life, and I want to dedicate the rest of this to those whom need a boost to get moving. One of my inspirations is Zuzana from BodyRock.Tv

She is so beautiful and such a delight. She motivates me to keep pushing hard to have a trim toned healthy body with a fit lifestyle. Although she is ripped in the midsection and I do not see myself ever becoming that defined, I do strive to have a more defined body structure. Fitness modeling is one of my goals. All it takes is focus & determination.

This is ideal to what my goal is:

One of the best all body workouts alongside swimming:

Keep on going, and the chances are that you will stumble on something,
perhaps when you are least expecting it.
I never heard of anyone ever stumbling on something sitting down.

feathers & lace.

One of the most elegant uplighting feminine materials that is of popular demand in fashion is lace or anything in utter relation to lace. Such as crochet. And with our human obsession over angels... such as the Victoria's Secret Angels, feathers are all the rage. I myself surround my life with feathers. Grew up with wild peacocks at my dads. They were once owned then set free into the wild. There is a photo on his fridge of myself holding a baby peacock, I cherish that memory. Annoying birds but magnificent with their beauty.

Angels have no philosophy but love.
