Fitness Friday with Lita Lewis
I'm loving Follow The Lita! Last year on Fitness Food And Style I featured Lita on my Monday Motivational post. She is one inspiring lady. Lita has officially launched her own website with amazing fitness programs, tips and tricks.
The gorgeous Lita takes 5 minutes with us today to share with us a little bit more about herself:
What fitness activity do you schedule into your daily routine to keep healthy? My training these days consists of a nice variety of different types of training. I'm currently incorporating a lot of track work, taking advantage of this New York summer weather I love to hit the track outdoors and do a lot of sprint intervals, drills and plyometric work. I'll also take Bikram yoga twice a week, Spin class once a week and also get my weight training sessions 4-5 times a week. So my fitness activity is very diverse at the moment and I prefer it that way, keeps me well rounded and I avoid boredom.
Describe your dream meal – what could we expect to find on your plate? I'm such a lover of food that it is always hard to choose just one dish! My favorite meal is breakfast, so I think if it's a cheat meal and I could have anything my taste buds desired I'd choose to have French Toast drenched in maple syrup, with a side of scramble eggs, smoked salmon, turkey bacon, a berries salad and a good cup of joe! Yup, dream meal!
Who’s your go to style icon – who have you always admired for their style, and why? My social life is so unhealthy, haha. I rarely have an excuse to get out of gym gear and look like a regular person, haha. However I love singer/dancer Ciara's style. She embodies a style that I love and can identify with; tomboy glam, comfortable yet contemporary. To me she comes across stylist, sexy with a rebellious nature but more importantly she always comes across confident, I love that about her style.
What’s a childhood habit or mannerism that has followed you into adulthood? Haha, good question! As the elder daughter of 2 siblings I definitely was a control freak and felt the need to lead and direct my younger sisters. Well, nowadays, nothing much has changed, haha. I still think it's my role to take control, plan, lead and direct others the way I see fit, because, you know, clearly I know what is best 100% of the time, ha!
Name three things you can’t leave the house without and why? 1. A change of clothes (chances are I'm headed to the gym and will need to change after a shower!) 2. My daily snacks; mixed nuts, protein bar, strawberries/blueberries, rice cakes. If I'll be running around all day I need for my snacks to be in arms reach, so pre packing my snacks with me is imperative! 3. My favorite Lip Balm, simply because I can't live without it. I hate having dry lips so I'm always applying a little lip conditioner on these pluckers to keep em' soft and plump!
Thank you so much Lita for joining us today, you are the best! I can't wait when we both catch up in person. In the meantime please come visit Lita on her website and social media pages:
