Thanks to the lovely Janetha and her foresight, I have a fun little survey today! Something fun and light – just perfect for your Friday attention span.
A is for age: Oh gosh. I’m old. 29. That means on August 3rd, I cross over into the next skincare line. From acne to wrinkles. (although I’ve been worried about wrinkles since I was 18. Which probably just gave me more wrinkles.)
B is for breakfast today: 0% Plain Chobani + one scoop of the new ON Performance Whey (giveaway coming soon!!) + ground flax + a crumbled Chia Brownie Bite from Twin Cakes Bakery (giveaway coming Monday!) + Kashi GoLean + sunflower butter.
C is for currently craving: A long, deep tissue massage. And a facial. And a million dollars. I crave these things.
D is for dinner tonight: Leftovers!! Homemade pizza = TJ’s whole wheat pizza dough + marinara + green peppers + mushrooms + brussel sprouts + diced tofu! Travis’ version has all of that, MINUS all of that, and add chicken.
E is for favorite type of exercise: I’d normally answer running…but with this 1/2 marathon training, I’m kind of over it! My legs are tired and I’m ready to direct my focus to weightlifting. Luckily, I’m enrolled in Tina’s Bootcamp, so she’s planned out my workouts for the next 7 weeks! So far, it’s been AMAZING and really fun to be trained by someone else!
F is for an irrational fear: I have many! I fear that Henry’s going to fall into a river again. That we’ll never sell our house in Chattanooga. That after the next child, I won’t be able to get the baby weight off. Actually, I guess those are all RATIONAL fears. I’m trying not to worry anymore.
G is for gross food: Olives, lima beans, fatty meats, kombucha. Bleck!
H is for hometown: Franklin, NC. A little mountain town west of Asheville. Born and raised here.
I is for something important: My relationship with God. It effects how every single other thing in my life is going. When I’m near, I feel balanced. When I stray, I feel unsettled. The thing is …HE doesn’t move. I do.
J is for current favorite jam: Jam, as in food, or jam, as in music? I’ll answer both. Food jam = my daddy’s homemade blackberry jam!! Music jam = Bethel Churchs’ “Be Lifted High” has been in the #1 slot for a while.
K is for kids: 2 toddlers, Henry Cole and Clara Kathleen. God willing, there will be another one in the oven after BLEND.
L is for current location: My couch. Laptop propped on my legs. Where I do all of my blogging, from the hours of 2-4pm.
M is for the most recent way you spent money: So NOT “healthy living blogger-ish”, but we went through the McDonald’s drivethru yesterday and got an Oreo McFlurry, then drove to Travis’ work and surprised him. Best surprise ever, he said. He got maybe 1/10th of it.
N is for something you need: I’m not sure if this qualifies as a NEED, per say, but I WANT this steam vacuum from Hoover!
After some blood tests on Clara (that was fun!), we found out that she’s HIGHLY allergic to dust mites and dog dander!! Aside from changing her HEPA filter and buying a new hypoallergenic mattress pad, I want to deep clean our rugs! Anyone have suggestions as to the best one??
O is for occupation: This one is so hard to answer, because I wear many hats. But the job I get PAID money to do = NASM-certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor. I teach Step Aerobics, Bootcamp, and Aqua Power (and sub for whatever!). But that’s not really my job. My job is being a stay-at-home mom. No pay. In fact, on Monday, I got puked on.
P is for pet peeve: When people don’t pick up after themselves. Oh, and when people puke on you.
Q is for a quote: I’m not really a “quote person”, but I like this one I saw on FB the other day and it really hit home.
R is for random fact about you: I know all the lyrics to “Ice Ice Baby”. There might also be a video of a *poorly* choreographed dance to said song. Might be.
S is for favorite healthy snack: Probably just a spoonful of almond butter.
T is for favorite treat: Easy. Under-baked brownies with some sort of chocolate chips or Reese-chips in them. A little cookies and cream ice cream wouldn’t hurt either.
U is for something that makes you unique: I’m married to a man who has 16 brothers and sisters! 4 “natural borns” and the rest adopted!! (I should do a post on the Wrights sometime – any interest?) I’m not sure if that makes ME unique, but I’m going with that one.
(Old picture..they just adopted two more boys from China!)
V is for favorite vegetable: A tie between broccoli and my newly discovered favorite, brussel sprouts! (who knew?)
W is for today’s workout: Bootcamp and Core Conditioning. Then a complete REST day tomorrow before Sunday’s race!
X is for X-rays you’ve had: None? I honestly don’t remember having one. I DID have a mammogram and needle biopsy a few years back (lump in breast – benign). But no X-Rays.
Y is for yesterday’s highlight: What day was yesterday? What day is today?
Z is for your time zone: Eastern Standard Time. I miss living in Colorado, because all of the important awards shows and games came on early enough for this old lady to actually watch them!
Phew..that was long, but fun!
QUESTION: Choose a letter and answer for yourself!!
