HOW Mackenzie STAYS FIT
Q. What does staying fit mean to you?
A. Feeling strong mentally and physically
Q. What ways do you enjoy staying fit, and why do you feel they work best for you!
A. Morning mom and baby Pilates classes (pre lockdown), at home workouts while my daughter has her morning nap with the help from various YouTube videos, but my favourite of all is any activity outside i.e long walks and workouts by the sea- those are the best for the mind in my opinion
Q. Does food play a role in how you stay fit?
A. It does, eating plant based makes me feel the best. My favourite plant based recipe is a Spicy Mexican Oaxacan Bowl.
