My favorite workout is CINDY!

I could eat eggs (over easy) and spinach all day, every day.
What has CFV helped you do, achieve?
CrossFit has helped me boost my confidence level and makes working out fun and challenging for me.
If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be and why?
I would love to have dinner with my mom again, because she was the best cook and was funny even when she wasn’t trying to be. My son would also be there because he was and is my heart.
Top three favorite movies.
Steele Magnolias
Wakanda Forever

What makes you the happiest?
Waking up with my health and sanity intact. I also love sharing this wonderful life with my husband, family, and friends.
