20 Questions

Time for 20 questions – blogger style! I found a list of questions I wanted to answer, and then have you all answer them if you’d like! I’ve done surveys here before and a few other bloggers joined in as well. I always love learning more about you! I’ll re-post the questions at the end so you can copy and paste into your own blog :)

  • 1. First thing you wash in the shower? I always shampoo first. 
  • 2. Are you more of a coffee or alcohol drinker? Definitely coffee. Minimum one cup per day, but usually two. I only really drink when I go out with friends or to happy hour.
  • 3. Do you plan outfits? Not really. I’m lucky that my job gave me some polo shirts so on my lazy days I just throw those on with pants. The days that I have to be up early to pack lunch and stuff I mentally plan my outfit the night before.
  • 4. Tell me about the last dream you remember having? I had a really vivid dream last night but don’t remember it! The last one I remember was my scheduling tweets for clients and being stressed about it lol. I’m dreaming about work – cool.:)
  • 5. What are you craving right now? I’d love to go buy a nice, hot panini for lunch, but I brought my lunch. Just a boring salad.
  • 6. Do you bite into your ice cream or just lick it? I just lick it. I like to savor it as much as possible!
  • 7. Have you ever met a celebrity? Does meeting elite runners count? I’ve met Kara Goucher and Jenny Simpson and both were so nice! I was definitely star struck.

  • 8. How many countries have you visited? Canada, Bahamas, Paraguay & Brazil. My next goal vacation is somewhere in Europe! Ideally, France :)
  • 9. Are your parents strict? They were when I was growing up. Since they were born and raised in Paraguay, their culture was totally different than my friends’ parents, which was really frustrating at times. For example, they didn’t understand sleepovers, so I rarely was allowed to go to sleepovers!
  • 10. Would you go sky diving? I don’t think so. I don’t think I’d be able to jump out of a plane. And what if your back up doesn’t open!?
  • 11. Whats your zodiac sign? Leo! And my friends can attest that I really am “such a leo.” 
  • 12. Brown or white eggs? I didn’t know it mattered? Do they taste different?
  • 13. If you were paid 1 million dollars to spend the night in a supposed haunted house, would you do it? I think I could do it but only if I had company! I’d need someone there to be scared with me lol. 
  • 14. As your walking down the street you find a suitcase full of money sitting next to a parked car, would you take it? No because I’d be scared someone would see me and confront me about it. I hate confrontation! Also, even if no one saw me, I’d still feel guilty about it or paranoid forever that a cop or the government would find me.
  • 15. In front of you are 10 pistols, 5 of which are loaded. If you survive you’d receive 100 million dollars. Would you be willing to place 1 to your head and pull the trigger? No way!! Would you be able to do this??
  • 16. Do you believe in ghosts, werewolves or vampires? I believe in ghosts and aliens. Not sure about werewolves or vampires though. But aliens DEFINITELY exist! My brother and Dan don’t believe in aliens. I don’t get how you can’t!
  • 17. If you could live forever, would you want to? I think I would but only if I could stay in a young-ish body. It’d be cool to see how the world changes throughout time. And you’d have forever to do everything you want to do. Though I guess it’d be sad when all of your loved ones pass away and you’re left alone. I guess you’d make new friends?
  • 18. If you could go back in time, which time period would you visit? I’d love to re-live my life starting from high school. I was looking through my brother’s high school yearbook the other day and was so jealous of all those students. They don’t have a care in the world other than getting into college! I’d love to go back and go to all the fun dances and school spirit events. Such a fun time in life.
  • 19. If they were to televise a live execution, would you watch it? Ehhh…I don’t know about this one. I mean, on the one hand, I think people like the Boston bombers 100000% deserve to be executed. But could I watch it? I’m not sure. 
  • 20. Would you rather live longer or be wealthy? I would like to be comfortably wealthy. I want enough money to travel and buy things I have always wanted and just be comfortable in life. I’d rather that than live a long life but be poor or and not able to enjoy life.

I’d love to hear your answers to these questions! Please copy and paste into your own blog, or answer some in the comments…can’t wait to read your answers :)

Fun Fitblogger Survey!

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 ;)

I wouldn’t mind working out in this gym.

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.
