I wanted to switch things up and do a fun survey for today. If you have a health & fitness blog, join in and write up your own post! I love learning more about other bloggers
1: What is your favorite snack? Healthy: apples or a banana with PB Unhealthy: Cookies and milk, or Honey Bunches Of Oats cereal
2: Favorite work out move, and what does it target? Squats. Although it mainly targets your glutes, it’s definitely a full-body workout and will get your heart rate up!
3: Least favorite workout? Any sort of cross-training. It is so boring to me.
4: When do you feel your best? After a particularly hard workout or run, when I’m drenched in sweat and out of breath, but can say, “Wow, I finished that workout and I feel awesome!”
5: Describe your “perfect” breakfast? My favorite is oatmeal with PB stirred in, sliced banana, and a drizzle of honey. Along with 2 hardboiled eggs.
6: Favorite splurge meal? Meal: Cheeseburger and fries, Snack: Half Baked Ben & Jerry’s
7: Best advice for a beginner? Be patient. You won’t see results immediately, but just keep at it. Even when you’re so sore in the beginning, it goes away and the next time you workout you will feel stronger.
8: Favorite one liner for motivation? It never gets easier, you just get better.
9: Best place to by workout clothes? Modell’s, Macy’s sale rack, TJ Maxx, and if I want to splurge-lululemon.
10: Favorite workout/running shoes? Currently, Saucony Mirage. I used to be a Mizuno girl and ran in the Wave Inspires.
11: What is your ratio of clean vs indulgence? Probably 70% clean, 30% indulge. I could be better but right now I don’t really feel the need to be really strict. I want to lower my body fat and all that, but I’m also at a place where I have accepted my body. I love working out, and eat healthy for the most part, so if the results come, they come..and of course I’ll be happy!
12: Best way to feel confident? In the gym: getting a PR (same in a race) and knowing how hard you worked to build up to that. Other: buying a top or pants that makes you feel good!
13: Number 1 tip for beating cravings? Find healthy alternatives. If I want a sweet treat, recently, I’ve been having these protein bites instead. I also like Larabars. If you like more salty, try making kale chips!
14: Describe your “dream” day of fitness? I’d love to go on some sort of fitness cruise or vacation. Where you can explore the terrain but in active ways (trail runs, hikes). But also relaxing on the beach would be necessary
15: What is your “power” song, the song that keeps you going? Hm…there are so many! Probably “One” by Swedish House Mafia. I have powered up hills many times listening to that song.
16: Favorite fitblogger? I definitely can’t pick one, but I will list a few of the bloggers I love reading: Cori-Olive To Run, Theodora-Losing Weight In The City, Alyssa-See This Girl Run, Gia-RunGiaRun, Sarah-Sweet Miles, Sarah-SarahFit…and really so many more. I think you can see who I follow if you go to my BlogLovin?
17: What do you wear to workout? In the gym: shorts (spandex or normal), or capris, and a tight fitting top. Running: spandex shorts, capris or pants. Always a dri-fit top.
18: What is your biggest accomplishment? Running a 33 minute PR in the 2013 NYC Marathon with my mom
19: What is your fitness goal? In the gym: Upping the amount I can squat, and doing 10 unassisted pullups. Running: One day qualifying for Boston, but first I’ll take a sub-2 hour half marathon.
20: What is your next fitness challenge? Right now I’m just working on getting stronger, but my next goal will be a sub-2 hour half marathon. I’m looking into spring races.
