I don't think I have an obsession, however I do eat chocolate every day.

I love cheeseburgers and chocolate - milk, not dark, and hot chocolate with marshmallows in the winter!

Chocolate is what I love. I have it every day.

I hate going out for lunch during a workday because it slows down my pace and ruins my rhythm. I prefer to eat at my desk.

I remember I went through a period where I didn't embrace my 'chocolatiness.' I don't know if that's a word, but I didn't embrace my chocolate lifestyle. Just being a chocolate, lovely brown skin girl and being proud of that.

Most days, I have a slice of toast, then lie in a hot bath for an hour to get up a sweat. I have a sauna at the racecourse and then go and ride. On the way home, I might stop at a service station and have a bar of chocolate and a Diet Coke. And that's it, basically.
