Tanya Mityushina is hot. So hot, that the 23-year-old Russian model was named one of Sports Illustrated‘s 2016 Rookies, and appeared in the magazine’s Swimsuit Issue this year. Naturally, the beauty—who’s also done work with Victoria’s Secret and dabbled in acting— is also an Instagram hit, with 70,000 followers, thanks to a feed that’s as aspirational as it is sexy.

Needless to say, it’s part of Mityushina’s job to look amazing pretty much at all times, so—with the hopes of stealing some of her diet and exercise tricks—we asked her to fill out the latest edition of our Food and Fitness Diary.

Today I had for dinner: Three-bean chili and a quiche. And an espresso ice cream over hot chocolate. It was Friday, after all.

The three Instagram accounts I’m obsessed with: @trotsko_masha: She’s so beautiful. @si_swimsuit for inspiration every day, and @bulletproofcoffee to keep me in check.

My go-to healthy restaurant: I don’t really go to those…

If I need to shape up before a big event, I: Cut [down] on liquids. 

Today I snacked on: A juice and an apple 

My go-to activewear pieces are: Anything from Nike—they know what’s up.

The best part of my job is: Meeting different creative people from all over the world, who I might never see again. Every day someone shares something new with me, and that helps me keep my mind open.
