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.

Creative Writing:

So I got all of this for my first @vitacost purchase and I’ve already blown off all my evening tasks to look up recipes on Pinterest. I mean come on, who wouldn’t be hooked after discovering a #paleo coconut flour flatbread recipe?! And yes, I got more nut butter even though I have 7 jars to get through. 😖 I just like having a variety of tastes okay?! #ilovefood #vitacost #adventuresinthekitchen #rippedrecipes #bodybuilding #figureprep #compprep #competitorintraining #aspiringfigurecompetitor #nutbutter #mealprep #yaygroceries

And if your daughter came to you, crying with hunger, would you tell her no? Would you tell her she is too fat, she wants to much, she must shrink into society? No.
Then why would you tell yourself the exact same thing? You are somebody’s daughter.

I ❤️ food too much to be wasting time consuming calories in beverage form. Sodas, high fructose corn syrup/high surgery fruit juices, alcohol (yes, alcohol!) …ehh, not worth it mate! I’ll stick to my water, coffee and teas so I can enjoy an extra cheat meal. 😉

I CHALLENGE YOU 👉 Cut out all beverages you currently consume and replace them with WATER, BLACK COFFEE & HERBAL TEAS for 14 DAYS. Pay attention to your waste line and body fat. Chances are you’ll see AND feel a difference. Personally I cut 5lbs in 14 days when I gave up ginger ale, sweetened lemonade and iced teas. I stopped adding cream to my coffee and started cooking my morning oatmeal with water (occasionally I’ll use almond/coconut milk if I’m feeling devilish lol) … WHO’S UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?!!! (at )

Yuuuuuuup. I stopped drinking in November of ‘13 and I have to say I have never looked back! This decision worked immensely for me (always figure out what works for you!)

Just because you want to be healthy, doesn’t mean you can’t eat out or socialize! I had a meeting for work where we were taken to Umami Burger, so my strategy? Check the menu beforehand and decide what I’d order. Opted for an ahi tuna burger, just avocado (no other works) on a lettuce wrap and a “boring” salad no dressing. Banging! 😁 #diningout #eatingout #healthyeating #umamiburger #bodybuilding #lifestylechanges #fitadvice #fitnation #nutrition #cleaneating #competitionprep #competitorintraining #figureprep #aspiringfigurecompetitor #ahituna #pescatarian

She’s so beautiful!

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… 💭😔

At the X/Y #tribecafilmfestival premiere. 😄

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). 😂 It’s not always 100%! Still tasty though! #proteinrecipes #kitchenblunders #mealprep #figureprep #aspiringfigurecompetitor #competitionprep #compprep #competitorintraining #proteinbites #bodybuilding #nutrition
