Voluptuous Eva likes to hike and spend time in the gym. She’s an outdoors type who likes to stay in close contact with the outside world. She says she likes to hike in order to feel connected to nature and to find and center herself.
“I don’t think most people even understand what it means to find their centers,” she explains. “You need to get deep down into yourself, to that place where you feel calm and in control. When you’re under a lot of stress, that center is hard to reach. Stress is a terrible thing. Over time, your body gets used to it, so you start thinking of stress as the normal state. But that new normal is still doing a lot of damage to your body and your mind. Taking time out, centering yourself, and getting out of the hustle and bustle of normal, stressful life, can help clear out the debilitating effects of stress. When you let anxiety and stress become the day to day for you, then you’re going to suffer. You’re going to let that become how you live your life and for you it will seem like anything might be better. That stress is eating away at you, destroying your health and your mental well-being. It can sneak up on you if you let it. So you’ve got to take the time to ground yourself, to center yourself, so that you can face the world with a clear mind.”
Eva likes to go out into nature in order to get reconnected with Mother Earth. “I love anything green and growing,” she says. “Whether it’s a window box garden or a field of freshly cut grass. I don’t care what it is as long as it’s natural, as long as I can smell it and feel it and maybe put my fingers in the dirt. I love anything that’s fresh and growing and full of life. The living world, it’s an amazing thing. That life force all around us is something very special.”
Eva combines her love of fitness with her love of the outdoors by running outside. “I love to push myself to go farther and go faster each time I run,” she admits. “My body is this amazing machine. Sometimes I like to just wander around my place naked, touching myself, running my hands along my body and feeling every special curve. I could lose myself for hours in my mirror. It’s not vanity. It’s amazement that I’ve been granted this amazing mechanism that I can hone and shape with working out and with practice.”
“I love to turn heads when I’m working out,” she says. “When I’m working, and sweating, and all eyes are on me, that’s when I know I’m really pushing past my limits. I love being able to do that. I love being able to share who I am with those around me, and know I’m impressing them… even making them feel more than that. It’s very refreshing.”
