Vibes & Vinyasa company co-founder, professional model and wellness advocate
Ronnie Howard is a champion for health and a fitness enthusiast who is defying traditional beauty standards—and looking good while doing so. Through her modeling work, she’s been featured on BET’s Rip the Runway, in Health and Ebony magazines and Ashley Stewart and Kohls campaigns, and on air at QVC Networks. But the model life has not always been easy, especially because her weight has fluctuated. Now at a healthy and stable size 14, the Philadelphia native doesn’t care what others think about her weight.
She’s getting better at time management too. “It involves creating boundaries,” Howard says. “I work such a busy schedule, I have to make time for the things that make me feel good inside and out. I do yoga a few times a week, meditate, eat well and take care of my hair, skin and nails. I also indulge in a luxurious bath every now and then. Little things make all the difference when it comes to self-care.”
Her favorite healthy snack: I’m obsessed with homemade acai bowls. Target has pure unsweetened acai in the frozen food section, and you can make 2 to 4 bowls, experimenting with different fruits and toppings.
