Q/A with Grace
What are some of your favorite things to do?
Spend time with family – exploring the forest with my spouse, cuddling my kids and kittens, and watching live sports games (of both the professional and little league variety).
Solve puzzles – jigsaw, Rubik’s cube, sudoku, word scramble, logic puzzles, and things like that.
Drink beer with friends. But it’s called “market research” if you work in the beer industry.
Where is your favorite place to eat?
Hae Nam Kalbi and Calamari House. I’m half Korean, but never really learned to cook any Korean dishes, so this is where I go to get my fix.
When did you start training at TFL and why?
I started one year ago. I had heard several of my friends recommend TFL, and they convinced me to give it a shot – thanks Steph, Rebecca, and Beth! What I love about TFL and what keeps me coming back is the community. Not only do the coaches know all of our names, but we all know each other’s names in the class and enjoy each other’s company. There are such good people at TFL!
What are some health and fitness goals you have achieved since joining TFL?
I love exercising! I never, never would have thought of myself as a 6am workout person, but I’m addicted. I’m so proud of myself for sticking with it for over a year. I can feel the difference it has made in terms of my strength, energy, and happiness.
TFL has helped me develop some other healthier habits, like drinking water and food planning. When I started at TFL I was eating out for lunch nearly every day, but with some encouragement I’ve cut way back and feel better for it.
What is a favorite quote that you live by?
“The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.”
– Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
