~ Nicole Murphy ~
As mother, model and jewelry designer the radiantly amazing Nicole Murphy dedicates some time to answering a few questions I’ve thrown her way. As a retired model, now business entrepreneur in the jewelry industry Nicole speaks health & fitness and concludes with some motivating advice you will want to write on post-its and stick around your vanity mirror!
By now you guys know I am a huge believer in leading by example and Ms. Murphy is no exception. Hustling a busy schedule between work, family and the miscellaneous haps that life deals us Nicole finds time to commit herself wholeheartedly to regular exercise and clean eating.
With a body like this why wouldn’t you listen and pay attention!
Let’s turn our attention to Nicole…
ONE. Describe yourself in 5 words…
TWO. It’s no secret you are a mother of 5. It is however hard to believe you carried five children! Please tell us your secret to obtaining and maintaining a flat, well defined stomach?
I workout at least 4 to 5 days a week and have made it a lifestyle so it fits into my routine even when traveling. I do at least 3 types of stomach/ab exercises during all my workouts.
THREE. What top 3 foods make your diet on a daily basis?
Chicken, Oatmeal and Salad
FOUR. What kind of workouts does your regime consist of?
Free weights, Sprints/Cardio, Kinesis Machine & Tae bo.
FIVE. Name your favorite exercise?
Lungs for my legs and butt!!
SIX. Any motivating words of advice for a couch potato needing motivation to jump start an active lifestyle?
I feel that there is no secret to a healthy and long life. Exercising gives you a better opportunity to live free of a lot of the pains and restrictions associated with inactivity. Doing a little everyday goes a long way to extending your life for yourself and your family and that’s hopefully all the motivation you need……plus who wouldn’t want to look nice in a pair of jeans?? LOL
