Find out how she answers about her upcoming plans at NASCAR, Christmas Abbott's Diet plan and shows the love for her dog 'Fran' in the interview below.
Interviewer 1: So people want to know about the Christmas Abbott Diet, what does Christmas eat and maintain her figure with so much energy as always?
Abbott: A firm believe in so, I do Paleo Diet as often as I can which is just primal meets and I try & stay away from the process of fluids but during competition season I am trained so much that I need more calorie intake, so it’s important for me that I have a balance between Proteins, Carbohydrates and Fats and I love FATS!!!.. Ha Ha ... So don't take that away from me.. and I do make sure that once or twice a week I getaway on a cheat just for my mental ability and to make sure that I don't deprive myself from the things that I emotionally want.

Interviewer 2: So am going to ask a question, if you are going to say.. Like hi - here I first.. (Give me a go)... Yeah... Go.
Abbott: Hi, I am Christmas Abbott here at the Reebok CrossFit Games.
Interviewer 2: So, I have a question about your background into being fit and healthy and you weren't always healthy as I read in your biography. So how did you change your life and get into CrossFit and being active ?
Abbott: Yeah, So I have a pretty bad lifestyle before my mid-twenties and to be honest it just started with making a decision that I wanted something better for myself, and that was the decision I made and from there I decided to quit smoking and then almost a year later I decided that I was going to start working out, and a year after that I started working out when I discovered "CrossFit" - I decided to change my eating habits. So, it was a long process for me but it just started with a decision to want something better for me.
Interviewer 2: And what do you tell someone who thinks it’s too late for them to change ?
Abbott: It’s never too late!!! It’s never too late ... My mother was in her Fifties when she quit smoking and she has not smoke from about Thirty years and she is a true inspiration for me, and she just started CrossFitting about two years ago, so it’s never.. Never too late. I think she is a true testimate to where you can be anywhere in your life and make a decision of making a better life for you.
Interviewer 2: Absolutely, Thanks!
Abbott: Thanks.. I wish she was here
Interviewer 3: Alright, My question is how you got into all this NASCAR stuff in changing tyres and the whole gig. How did transition from CrossFit to NASCAR happen?
Abbott: Actually, I got into NASCAR via CrossFits... So, a couple of my friends that are CrossFitter’s were going upto Charlotte for a weekend to be able to potentially able to sponsor races as they are head of companies, and I got invited for a pit-crew challenge and I whooped their butt in hitting lug nuts. And from there it was just something... it was such a great experience that much like my First CrossFit Workout where I didn't knew what happened but I knew that I wanted to that again to this where I didn't understand the hitting lug nuts but I knew that I wanted to do them more about it and that opened the door. Just going on a Whim!!!
Interviewer 4: So, I just wanted to know about the New BOX that you are opening up ? Intel's about that like when you are opening and what your favorite Ward is as well.
Abbott: Oh Man!, So am not sure when the new box is going to open as some things are in the process right now and I am very Hands-On owner and Hands-On person and I have not been able to be there as much as I wanted to so it’s taking a little bit longer, so it’s yet to be determined for the opening date. Favorite Ward, that is like asking you your favorite desert... So am a big fan of Classic Girls and you can never go wrong with FRAN – that’s my dog name, actually I named my dog after their workouts. I really love Helen and Diane, those are the TOP THREE and I kind of keep them rotating around depending on how am feeling that day... Thanks
