BBD-1474 Name Fleur de Lethal
Age 29

Weight 135 lbs
Weight before derby 155 lbs

Key Position Defensive Blocker
Practice time per week 8 to 9 hours
Other Workout I do high intensity interval training (HIIT) stuff like tabata, some cardio, lift weights, circuit training and go to kickboxing classes periodically. My favorite is a class I just recently started going to. It's an hour long kickboxing class that incorporates circuit training in the workout. It involves more aggression and intensity than the other workouts I do, which I hope will eventually translate onto the track.
Diet

I don't follow this strictly or perfectly, but I try to eat mostly whole, natural foods and complex carbs and stay away from refined sugars and processed foods. My largest meals are in the morning, and get smaller throughout the day. I also don't drink sodas. Only water, almond milk, and fresh fruit juice.
It's been difficult, because the way I grew up eating was so different. I'm from Lake Charles, LA, in the southwestern part of the state. Corn and rice were considered vegetables and meals commonly consisted of things like seafood stuffed into meat which might be stuffed into another meat, fried and served over rice with some type of sauce or gravy. Being in the derby community around so many fit, athletic women has really inspired me to be more careful about what I put in my body.

Laps in 5 minutes 31 laps in 5 minutes

They are hour long classes with cardio, rowing, and an assortment of weight goodies. TRX straps, bosu, dumbells, medicine balls, etc. Its interval heart rate training and I attribute the majority of my strength to this philosophy!!
Diet

I try and keep it "Clean and Lean"... most of the time. I try and eat as much protein and veggies as possible!! The less processed the better!!! I never, ever skip breakfast its the most important meal of the day, although it is usually in the form of a protein (30g) shake with spinach + a boiled egg. That gets the metabolism going, and I eat healthy snacks just about every two hours. I usually have an actual meal for dinner chicken, tuna, veggies, and quinoa is a good example of a typical dinner at home. I must admit I am a foodie, so I definitely indulge out here and there... so its even more important to keep up with my fitness regime!!!

Other Workout I do Crossfit 3x a week - it has helped my game tremendously and made me a lot stronger. I love it! I also love to run and try to fit that in at least once a week when I can.
Diet I am mostly vegetarian (technically a pescetarian, I guess). I try to keep the prepackaged foods to a minimum and focus on protein, whole grains, fruits and veggies. Fortunately, eating well has always come pretty naturally to me (thanks, Mom and Dad!). However, I have a wicked sweet tooth. I try to keep it in check by allowing myself a little bit of chocolate every day. ALSO I LOVE PIZZA. ALL THE PIZZA WITH LOTS OF VEGGIES.

Previous Athletic Experience I played soccer for most of my life. I ran cross-country in high school and continue to love long-distance running. I've also dabbled in martial arts (karate, jiu jitsu).
