MY FITNESS GOALS
I got Covid-19 in August 2020 and was one of the unlucky ones to become a long hauler. I was in bed for a month and unable to work out for five months. I lost about 25 pounds. My goal is just to feel like myself again.
WHY SHAZAM IS MY FITNESS HERO
Zachary Levi is ripped, but not Mark Wahlberg ripped. He’s not waking up at 2:30 a.m. for a six-hour gym session.
I STAY MOTIVATED BY . . .
Talking to colleagues. We have a Peloton Slack channel. Everyone does rides together and encourages each other.
THE ONE FOOD I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT IS . . .
Unreal Deli meat. After Covid-19-related complications, I decided to go vegan. It’s made with chickpeas, tomatoes, and beets, not one of those texturized soy proteins.
MY PUMP-UP JAM IS . . .
“I Think We’re Alone Now” by Tiffany gets me going. That or anything by Justin Bieber or Carly Rae Jepsen.
WHAT MAKES ME FEEL STRONG IS . . .
Getting to the end.
