The Little Dominican Runs

About the Little Dominican:
The little Dominican grew up amidst the bright lights of Times Square and McDonald's malls. After gaining the Freshman 15--TWICE!--the little Dominican began a love affair with all things Fitness, Health & Nutrition. Since then she has lost 50 lbs, and regained her life. She is currently training to hit the stage for her very first Fitness competition. When not on the track or hauling butt in kickboxing she enjoys writing new adventures, watching movies, testing out new workouts, seeing new corners of the world, acquiring stylish new digs, and working at a specialty running store.

She’s so beautiful!

(via nothing-but-fitness-girls)

When I was younger, I dreamt of becoming a model (Really, I wanted to be a VS Angel!) but thought I was too heavy/not pretty enough. A girl still dreams sometimes… πŸ’­πŸ˜”

At the X/Y #tribecafilmfestival premiere. πŸ˜„

Forget the jay’s on your feet, I got #Mizunos on mine! 😝 Playing hooky to take these babies out to play! It’s just so beautiful out, my runner’s heart can’t resist! #runnyc #waverider17 #competitorintraining #fitnation #figureprep

I was trying to make protein bites (right) but I accidentally poured too much water into my first batch and made protein oatmeal (left). πŸ˜‚ It’s not always 100%! Still tasty though! #proteinrecipes #kitchenblunders #mealprep #figureprep #aspiringfigurecompetitor #competitionprep #compprep #competitorintraining #proteinbites #bodybuilding #nutrition

Craving something #sweet but don’t want to break your #progress? Take #3ingredients and whip up some seriously delicious #icecream! This is one of my go to’s! You control the sugar and fat content! I threw some frozen berries, 1 scoop protein powder and approximately 1/4c coconut milk into a blender and 2 minutes later topped it with some fresh blueberries. So many options! You can drop in peanut butter or a handful of nuts, use bananas or any frozen fruit instead of berries, throw some coconut flakes on top or chop in some chocolate squares! The possibilities are endless! #proteinicecream #bodybuilding #healthy #nutrition #absaremadeinthekitchen #competitorintraining #eatforthebodyyouwant #proteinrecipes #ilovefood #foodporn

Ladies and gents, I can now be found on Facebook! Look for me as “Dro Fit” or using my e-mail: thelittledominicannyc@gmail.com

Hope to be friends with you all on the dark side! =}

"But my rose, all her own, is more important than all of you together, since she’s the one I’ve watered. Since she’s the one I put under glass. Since she’s the one I sheltered behind a screen. Since she’s the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except the two or three for butterflies). Since she’s the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she’s my rose." - Le Petit Prince 😳😭

Looking through some old photos today made me cry (good tears! Tears of amazement! It happens often these days πŸ˜‚) Top left is 2008, at my heaviest: 192lbs. I had come home from my first semester at college and I remember @viva_la_perri’s mother commenting that I had gained more than just the “Freshman 15.” 😳 My parents later told me that my weight gain made their heart break because it made them worry about what I was eating (it was also my first time away from home). In 2010, I started running (top right). Bottom two is now: 138lbs, about 19-20% body fat and still on my way to leaning out! Sometimes I forget how far I’ve come! Nearly 4-7 years and I am just now getting closer! I know what it’s like to try and try and try again so let me tell you just because you’ve failed before or have been on a winding road for what seems like forever does not mean you’re down and out! You’re down and out when you stop trying. I’m still on my journey. So come with me y’all, I enjoy company.😘 #bodybuilding #transformation #competitorintraining #fitnation #progress #aspiringfigurecompetitor #samesmile #lotsoflovinfrommyperri
