[ BodySpaceAdmin ] Where are you from, and how long have you been working out?
ivy78: I am from Norfolk, VA. I've been working out on and off for 6 years.
[ BSA ] 6 years, wow - have you been on Bodybuilding.com that long, too?
ivy78: No... I have been on BB.com since October 2006. All the attention I've received on
BodySpace has motivated me to work out more!
|BODYSPACE: STRENGTH IN NUMBERS|
[ BSA ] LOL, that's great - BodySpace is meant to be a motivational tool, after all!
ivy78: I have gotten some great advice and made some friends as well. I would have to say that I am addicted.
[ BSA ] According to your profile, you have a ton of mutual friends right now. 743!
ivy78: Yes, that is a lot!
[ BSA ] How did you first find out about BodySpace and Bodybuilding.com?
[ BSA ] Did you find our main site first or BodySpace first?
[ BSA ] Why do you like BodySpace so much? Is it the friends? The comments? The photo sharing? The ratings? The discussions? What exactly?
ivy78: I like BodySpace so much because I get to
chat with people who share the same kind of passion in fitness as I do, 'cause I don't have anyone in real life who is really into fitness. I must admit I love the
comments as well... And when people don't hate on you, I love the ratings too. I also like looking at the photos in both the
[ BSA ] That brings up the next question - do you work out at home or at a gym? (If no one around you is into fitness, do you have trouble finding a workout partner?)
ivy78: I work out in an all-women's gym. I like to work out by myself and do my own thing. Right now though I have been working out with my mom, though. She is recovering from
knee surgery and I am helping her out.
[ BSA ] Oh, that's nice of you. An all-women's gym, huh? How do I join? LOL
ivy78: LOL, I know. Most of the
women are not fit, but they are trying, and that is all that matters. If they ask me for help, I help them.
should do that! I think they may be too shy to post pics, but then again I wouldn't know 'cause I don't talk to them unless they ask me for help. Because when I am at the gym, I am in my zone.
[ BSA ] Yeah, especially if they get all those "1" ratings, huh? (Which we're still trying to clean up.)
ivy78: LOL, haters...! It has gotten a lot better, though. I feel a lot better about posting pics in the
gallery now - you guys are doing a great job.
[ BSA ] How many comments do you receive in any given day? You're the #3 rated on getting the most comments.
ivy78: I am not sure - I guess about 10-20... Yeah, I saw that - makes me think where I would have been if I wouldn't have deleted comments back in the day when I didn't know better, LOL. I respond to
every comment, too. There may have been only 3 or 4 that I didn't respond to.
[ BSA ] Actually, it looks like you only need 3 more comments to jump into the #2 spot. Hang on, I'll go leave you 3 comments. LOL
ivy78: Well, you
Jordyn is my girl. Not tryin' to bump her out of the #2 spot.
[ BSA ] Do you two know each other in real life?
ivy78: No, I just think she is cool. So is Miss
Chicken Tuna, she gave me advice when I asked her.
[ BSA ] So... Ummm... "The Pole Photo." Please explain. (You know everyone's wondering about it!)
ivy78: Are you serious? Boy, I have gotten this question a lot, actually... I should lie and say I am a stripper, but I am not. It's really a lamp pole, LOL. I guess you could say I got bored and wanted to have a little fun.

Comment On This Photo Here.
[ BSA ] Maybe now you won't get asked that so much. Good times.
ivy78: Maybe. I guess I asked for it by posting the pic. Sometimes I get carried away, but I do know how to be good!
[ BSA ] What's your forum signature refer to? "This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this. I am not your Queen." Song lyrics?
ivy78: It comes from the film "
300" - great movie! A lot of people kept saying how they loved my sig and the flick. Sometimes I use song lyrics, too, however. Go see the movie!
[ BSA ] Your profile states that one of your goals is to compete at some point in the future. How far away do you feel that is?
ivy78: My lord, I don't have any idea, honestly. I am extremly hard on myself. No matter how many times others say I look great and I should compete soon, I still see lots of flaws when I look at my body. When I feel not so flawed, then I will compete - but I'm not so sure how long that will be. I want perfection! (But perhaps I will settle for
close to perfection.)
[ BSA ] What do you feel are the areas you need to work on?
ivy78: I would like to improve everywhere, but I think my
legs need the most improvement. Me being a ectomorph body type, it is hard for me to put on muscle.
| What Does Ectomorph Mean?
Ectomorph is a human body type. Ectomorphs have short upper bodies, long arms/legs, long/narrow feet and hands, very little fat, narrow chest and shoulders, and long thin muscles. Ectomorphs mostly consider themselves hard gainers.
[ BSA ] What do your leg day workouts consist of?
ivy78: I just changed it up a bit. I had it posted on
my profile but I took it down. Now I train legs once a week and I keep things in the 12-15
rep range. I have gained size in my legs already and would now like them to look more cut. I do the
leg extensions, and squats. One week I will do
regular squats, the next week
front squats, and then the next week
[ BSA ] What about supplements? According to your profile, you use CytoSport Muscle Milk. What are your favorite flavors?
ivy78: Vanilla Creme. I have only tried Vanilla. I like to stick to vanilla, that way I can add extra stuff to eat without worrying about it tasting funny.
[ BSA ] In reviewing some of your profile comments, I can't help wondering if you ever get tired of all the compliments? (Serious question, does it get old?)
ivy78: Oh, I gotta be careful with this one, LOL. I love the compliments! I think some forget that BB.com is not actually a dating site, however, but I am a bit of a flirt though, so it's all good. It's all in fun and is very harmless.
[ BSA ] Your progress pics are great (except for the blurry ones - LOL). You seem to have mastered the art of self-photography. What kind of camera/phone is it?
ivy78: I just recently started using a digital camera that belongs to my boyfriend. I also started to use the timer 'cause of my shaky hand (too much
caffeine). All the old pics are from a camera phone (not sure what kind 'cause its my boyfriend's, too).
[ BSA ] So, you like Whoppers, huh? The chocolate malt candies, or the Burger King variety?
ivy78: LOL, I love them both! Diet is a big weakness of mine. I have not had the chocolate ones in a long time though. :(
[ BSA ] What's something fun about you that people on BodySpace don't know about? And is your boyfriend on BodySpace?
ivy78: Well, some don't know that I like to write
poems and have had some published in poetry books. It was mostly sad, or dark/gothic... I don't write much anymore though. That's not so fun though, LOL. No, my boyfriend is not on BodySpace... He does not like the attention I get from the
male BodySpace members either. He has leaned to deal with it, though, and soon he will get over it - LOL! Oh, and I have a
sugar glider - I guess that's fun...

[ BSA ] What's a sugar glider??
ivy78: It's like a flying squirel. They like to eat sweet stuff and they have these things they glide in the air with... that's why they call them sugar gliders. I have a chihuahua too, her name is Paris.
[ BSA ] As in Hilton?
ivy78: Yep, Hilton. When I first got her she was so small that she couldn't get on my lap so she would whine all the time. One day she was whining real bad so I said, "You are a whinny little beyotch, just like Paris Hilton!" I love her, but she
is spoiled rotten!
[ BSA ] ROFL! Speaking of celebs, who are your favorite fitness celebrities (male or female), and have you met them in person?
Maggie Diubaldo and
Jelena (Djordjevic) Abbou. They are both extremly hot and have flawless bodies - just perfect! No, I haven't met them in person, but I would like to one day.
[ BSA ] On your blog, you and some friends are discussing Nutrex Lipo 6. What's it do for you and why are you taking it?
ivy78: I was using it to get rid of all this
fat, J/K. No, I was taking it for to help give me an energy boost before
workouts. I am no longer taking it, however, as I am taking a break from using caffeine right now. I must admit I was using way too much
caffeine! I am a
caffeine junkie all the way - I guess you could say I have an addictive personality, LOL.
[ BSA ] If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only have one supplement, which would it be?
ivy78: Caffeine! No, Whoppers...
[ BSA ] Oh, and before I forget, why doesn't your boyfriend take your BodySpace photos for you?
ivy78: He did take one of the pics in
my gallery. He really does not like to take them, though. I don't blame him being that I take so many, LOL. If he took them all the time he would have gone crazy by now.
I drive myself crazy sometimes! I really don't know how he puts up with me... So, I am gonna be looking for volunteers to take my photos, LOL.

[ BSA ] There's the correct answer - the one, true answer that all the guys reading this want to hear! Anything else you'd like to share with people, any final comments? (Any advice on getting popular enough to be on the BodySpace main page 24/7?)
ivy78: Nope, I think everything got covered. Thanks for interviewing me! It was fun and not scary, like I thought it would be, LOL. Advice for being on the BodySpace main page all the time? Good question, when I find the answer to that, I will let you know!
