Lana Z.

I am a competitive powerlifter based in the tiny town of Philipsburg, Montana. I lift in my basement, by myself, and it totally rocks.  I love hiking, skiing, ice-skating, getting outside, and using my strength outside of the gym as much as I can. I’m interested in the way food affects my performance, mood, and body composition and I use this blog to keep track of my progress, goals, and healthy recipes.

Personality wise, I am known for my thick skin, strong character, and brutally honest statements. Additionally I may be known for my sarcasm, wit, and well managed narcissism. (Appearance wise, I am known for my adorable freckles and her bright red hair). Outside of the kitchen/gym, I am an Architect, working at Front Inc.
