By Paula Rath

Profession: Working toward a medical assistant or nursing degree at Remington College
Height: 5 feet, 10 inches
Weight: 160. Target weight: 185-195, 5 percent body fat
Workout habits: Martial arts six days a week, bodyboarding when the surf's up, weightlifting three to five times a week, paddling with Lokahi Canoe Club two to three times a week
My good foods/bad foods: Good foods are only fruits like apples, oranges and bananas. Everything else is pretty much bad because it's all meat items ... I don't like vegetables.
My biggest motivator: Just staying strong. I don't want to be weak, especially when I get older.
What I wear to work out: Dobok the uniform for martial arts. Board shorts for bodyboarding and paddling, some junk shorts for lifting weights
What saves my sanity: Lifting weights and martial arts. They relieve stress and you can fight somebody in a good way with martial arts. Tae kwon do has a lot of cardio, flexibility and self-defense. Hapkido is great for joint manipulations, takedowns, kicks and punches, but it's not aggressive.
My next challenge: Getting my black belt in tae kwon do and hapkido
Advice for those in the same boat: Don't let yourself get out of shape.
