In order to stay healthy and also to maintain my figure. Being a Panther Ice Dancer, sometimes you have a calendar photo shoot, and for games we wear a short top and a really short skirt…
What's your workout routine?
We audition in August and after auditions begin practices immediately …
Ice Dance practice is very rigorous. We start at 7 p.m. and end at 10, after working a full-time job or [being] a student for some girls.
We practice Tuesday through Thursday and sometimes Mondays. We start with sit-ups and stretching and some toning like push-ups and squats. Maybe 15 or 20 minutes. Then we start with dancing. We try to go through maybe 50 dances, each a minute. I would say it's 50 percent memorizing and 50 percent pushing yourself as hard as you can. When you perform the one-minute dance, it's like sprinting for one minute straight, kicking legs as high and with as much force as you can to get it up to your face. We have a lot of dances with kick lines.
What's your typical daily diet?
I know it's really bad, but I'm not a breakfast person, although sometimes I'll snack on almonds or have scrambled eggs or boiled eggs.
For lunch, I love chicken salad. I love anything with chicken in it. And sushi. I love veggie and broccoli soups and all that. I love steak. It's not that healthy, but I like it.
Dinner is the same as lunch: mainly veggies and chicken. I love Subway sandwiches. And once in a while, I'll indulge in their raspberry cheesecake cookie.
I love popcorn …

Is preventing another bypass operation a factor [for keeping fit]? What happened?
Yeah. If you look at my old pictures, now I'm a different person. Most of my life I was always heavy.
I went to the doctor for a stress test and the doctor said, "I'll go in, probably put a camera and stent in there." When I woke up, he said I had three major clogged arteries, including one called a widow-maker. He said, "You might go to sleep one night and not wake up, like your father and aunt."
