But I would never compromise my mental and physical health for a body I can’t healthily obtain or maintain long term.

Thanks for that. Whew. No strict diets. Love it.

Lais is from the massive Brazilian metropolis of Sao Paulo. article, wikimedia photo article, wikimedia photo

São Paulo is a municipality, metropolis and global city located in southeastern Brazil.

It is the most populous city in Brazil, South America, and the Southern Hemisphere. It is also the world’s twelfth largest city by population.

São Paulo is also the capital of the state of São Paulo, Brazil’s most populous and wealthiest state.

Let’s go to the beach. Lais would want us to have fun and do that. It contributes to good health. article, photo article, photo

There is also another good reason for that.

The informative site educates, “Sao Paulo is a city filled with beautiful people, especially beautiful women. With more women than men among the metropolitan area’s 20 million residents, there are plenty of women to choose from (with their permission, of course). In this Brazilian city, singlehood is an enviable way of life.

Sao Paulo is not the capital of Brazil, but it’s the center of most of its wealth. Money can’t buy you love, but it certainly helps.”

If some online sources are true São Paulo has 7.9 million women for 7.5 million men.

Another source even says the ratio of women to men is 20 to one.

So the beaches near Sao Paulo must be special, especially if the girls look anything like Lais.

One beach that stood out is Maresias. article, photo article, photo

Always a popular destination site, enlightens, “The popular but mistaken belief is that Brazil’s São Paulo state has no beaches. Though the city of São Paulo itself may not sprawl languidly along the ocean like certain other Brazilian cities or towns, São Paulo state boasts almost 400 miles of tropical Atlantic coastline, which beckons beachcombers from inside and outside Brazil for swimming, surfing and sunbathing.

Featuring one of the few beaches along the entire Brazilian coast that actually faces west — the better to snap mountain-framed sunset photos — Maresias holds court as the Litoral Norte’s oceanfront party capital.” article, photo article, photo

They add, “The sea at the beach is shaken with big waves and the current is also strong, being one of the most popular surf points in Brazil, serving as a point for some tournaments. The sand is yellowish and soft with 5 kilometers in length. The neighborhood beside the beach attracts many tourists for its variety of restaurants and shops, but especially young people, because of its night clubs.” article, photo article, photo

If you decide to go to look for Lais DeLeon’s relatives and models similar in looks, Maresias Beach Hotel is a fantastic place to stay. They express, “Our Hotel is the best accommodation option in Maresias beach. Just a few steps separate the guest rooms from the beach and the ocean can be seen from any of the hotel areas. Nothing would be more pleasant.”

Well maybe having a light workout that includes being taught by Lais while resting and dining might be an upgrade.

In our female wrestling industry, the Fem Competitors go to extra-ordinary efforts to stay in shape and provide exceptional customer service in regards to mixed wrestling sessions.

It’s great to meet Lais DeLeon from Brazil. She’s full of life, fantastic healthful tips, and unbridled energy and is an inspirational beauty. article, photo article, photo
