The key is that I control my life; my life doesn’t control me.
If you want to stay fit, surround yourself with a couple of chicks who are fired up, so that the one day you’re not, you can feed off their energy.
Sports provide girls with the opportunity to develop a better relationship with their bodies. They can be aggressive on the court, be strong and still be feminine.
My motivation has always been health – eating healthy and taking care of myself.
Volleyball anchored me at a time in my life when I needed it. It gave me a reason for being this big, big girl.
Have a short memory and a lot of forgiveness. Especially us girls who don’t forget a thing. Move on.
I think any time people behave in a way that’s truly them, then they’ll never fail. You get in trouble when you try to copy others.
You slam the bottom and either walk away or suck it up and get through it.
I always have a million things going on at once, but I try to put my energy into the most immediate need.
Funny, how moms can tell you what to do no matter how old or big you are.
I take the choice out of exercise. It’s not an option.
My body is a vehicle for the mechanics of my sport.
I didn’t get into this to pick up a new hobby. I don’t want to just be a golfer. I want to be the best.
Once I got past my anger toward my mother, I began to excel in volleyball and modeling.
Stay calm and aggressive.
We hear all around us to love ourselves, and one of the ways we can do that is to eat food that serves our body, but also for us to love the food we’re eating.
I can’t sing but I can understand wanting to keep a balance, trying to pursue dreams, while creating a stable environment for my children.
I want to play until the end.
That isn’t to say that Hawaii’s better. On the mainland, everyone seems to be trying to get somewhere. Kids are taught to shoot for the moon, to believe in their ability to do anything, to follow their passions. In Hawaii, you’re stuck in the middle of the Pacific, and it can be difficult to see how you’re going to follow your passion from there.
In Hawaii, if you’re invited to dinner, it’s assumed that the children are invited as well. On the islands, no one treats children like they’re not part of the conversation. People talk to children as people and include them in adventures and conversations.
I don’t have a life, I really don’t. I’m as close to a nun as you can be without the little hat. I’m a golf nun.
I won’t say my nutrition is perfect. If I’m at a restaurant and there’s fresh pasta on the menu, I’m going to order it. At home, though, I avoid grains and do a lot of the cooking to control what our family eats.
I really don’t have the time to spend much time online, I do have web tv, which I use when I need information.
I think sometimes when I go to make a move on something, people try to disqualify any talent that I have or any hard work that I’ve done.
Eating and food are a wonderful part of our life’s experience, and half of us are walking around dreading having to figure out what to put in our mouths.
