What is your proudest fitness accomplishment?: My proudest fitness accomplishment personally is having the confidence and will power to compete. I love being on stage and love training for each show. You just never know who is at each competition and it’s such a rush not knowing. I train to “win”, it’s not all about winning it’s just about having that mind set.
What motivates you?: My motivation is how others look at me as there motivation. There’s nothing better than that proud feeling you get when someone comes up to me saying “you look great or train me or I wish I had your motivation!” Also looking at past competition pictures and always challenging myself to see how I can improve.
Best local eats: I’m italian so my dad would kill me if I didn’t say an italian restaurant. I would have to say Tratoria Romana in Lincoln or Sienna either of the locations.
Famous person you would like to have dinner with: Marc Whalburg! He’s the man, he’s not only good looking, but he’s a well rounded down to earth guy.
What’s on your nightstand?: My “R.E.M. Sleeping powder” promotes better night sleep and nourishes your muscles. My alarm clock set for 5 and 515 and sometimes 530 for those awful “I don’t want to move” mornings.
Favorite cheat meal/snack: My weakness is dessert ;)! Any kind of chocolate overload anything!
What do you like to do in your down time?: When I have time I love spending time with my family,boyfriend and pitbull puppy. My family is my everything and would put them before anything in my life. I’m lucky to have such an amazing loving and supportive family.
Best thing about living in RI: I don’t mind living in the “smallest state”. The beaches are enjoyable and summer events are always fun. It’s nice not having to drive far anywhere you go.
One thing people don’t know about you: I was on a reality tv show back in 2008 for abc family. It was called “Americas Next Prom Queen” although it only aired for one season it was quite the experience.
Favorite quote: Oh there’s a few quotes I love, but to name a few. “Don’t let people judge you. You are who you are, and if you work hard, you’ll create an even better you.” People are so critical towards one anthor and I wish that wasn’t always the case.
Fitness tip for RI Fit Readers: SET GOALS!! If you don’t have a reachable goal for yourself then you’ll just give up. I’m always setting goals to motivate me in the gym and in the kitchen!! Remember 70% diet 30% gym ????
