At age 10, I’d a 15-year plan: play basketball every single day, enroll in a college team and make the WNBA. But annually into undergrad, I was still just a walk-on, and that i realized that my WNBA dreams were unrealistic (and my engineering degree would earn me more money). So I quit to focus on my studies. Simultaneously, I had been doing what most college kids do?partying?and lost the motivation to work out. I graduated in December 2011 weighing 185 pounds.
Just add color
I buy workout clothes in crazy colors?they give me energy.
Switch up your push-ups
Create diamond jewelry shape with your forefingers and thumbs to actually target your triceps.
Find instant motivation
I started listening to motivational speeches online during workouts. My personal favorite: “I Am a Champion” by Coach Flowers.
DIY protein bars
I make my very own protein bars by mixing oats with nuts or dried fruit?whatever sounds good?then adding a bit of heated unsweetened almond milk to bind the dough before pressing it right into a sheet pan (no baking needed).
