Monday Motivator: Meet Alicia

What does #RevLife mean to you?
#RevLife means health and fitness to me.  Before Revolution I thought that I’d have to learn to live with my ‘post breast cancer’ body.  Working with Mandy (my personal trainer) has changed that!  It’s not just that I’m stronger now, my body is literally correcting/adjusting itself.  I can’t thank Mandy enough for her patience and guidance.  
We all get in the zone in different ways.
Where does your head go during a workout?

Honestly, when I’m at Rev I’m thinking:  Drop your shoulders, press your belly button in towards your spine, straighten and lower your hips….

What’s your favorite meal/snack to eat after a tough workout?

 My favorite is the “Mandy” from Healthy Scratch   

If you have friends visiting from out of town how do you show the the perfect Buffalo day?
The perfect Buffalo day includes any combination of Albright Knox, the Buffalo Philharmonic, a Bills or Sabres game, hanging out on Elmwood or at Canalside.  

What’s your favorite place to brunch in Buffalo?

I’m not really a brunch person but I love the pancakes at the Lake Effect Diner.

Early bird or night owl?
Early Bid

What’s your ideal rest day look like?

Lately, my ideal rest day starts with a walk, and coffee.  I get the newspaper and sit on my porch and do the puzzles in the afternoon and go out for an early dinner and drinks.  

What’s your Favorite guilty pleasure song? 

Anyway you want it’ by Journey.  Several years ago, I dreamed I was the lead singer for Journey…..it was the BEST dream I ever had.  Everyone loved and adored me, and I was singing that song.  

If you were shipwrecked on a deserted island which 2 luxury items would you want to have?
 I’d like to have Brad Pitt and a male cook/handyman who can sing.

Cats or Dogs?

Both.  I have a cat, and I love dogs.

If you were to win $100 million today what’s the first you do?
If I won $100 million I’m not sure what I’d do.
