1. What did you eat for breakfast?
I was running late, so I bought an egg and sausage sandwich from
the coffee shop near where I work and ate it without the bread. Also, coffee (does that even need to be said?).
2. How much water do you drink a day?
I'm not really sure, but at least 40 oz. I've been making more of
an effort to drink water lately since I drink so much coffee.
3. What is your current favorite workout?
Weight lifting and going out and about with my dog.
4. How many calories do you eat a day?
I don't really count calories. If I feel like I am am getting off
track with my eating habits, then I will hop on the MyFitnessPal app.
and count for a few days, just so I have a better idea of what I am
5. What are your favorite healthy snacks?
Rice cakes and peanut butter, apples and peanut butter, green
smoothies or juices. Also, peanut butter.

90% of the time it is leftovers from dinner the night before. The
other 10% is probably a salad or sandwich.
7. What is your favorite body part to strength train?
Legs, because it's the part of my body that needs the most work.
8. What is your least favorite body part to strength
9. What are your “bad” food cravings?
I don't really believe that food is “good” or “bad.” Food
can be nutritious, or lacking nutrition, really. Speaking of foods
that are not very nutritious, I usually crave french fries and froyo.
10. Do you take vitamins or supplements?
No, but I really should!
11. How often do you eat out?
Hmm, I would say in general, Chris (my Husband) and I usually eat
out on Fridays and Saturdays. Thank God Chris loves to cook, so we
usually have awesome breakfasts before work in the morning, and even
more amazing dinners.
12. Do you eat fast food?
It all depends on what you would consider fast food. I don't eat
at McDonalds and the like, but I will eat at Chipotle, Panera, and
13. Who is your biggest supporter?
Chris! He is always encouraging to be my best, and is there to
pick me up when I am down. Case in point- I really want to go back to
fencing and keep talking about it- Chris keeps reminding me about it
so hopefully I start back in the next week or so.
14. Do you have a gym membership?
Yes, I belong to Gold's Gym. We got lucky and a brand new one
opened up less than five minutes from our house.
15. How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
Ugh, never enough! I am well aware that getting enough sleep is
part of a healthy lifestyle. However, I am a night owl which causes
me to say up way past my bed time. Then it is impossible to get up in
the morning. The struggle is real.
16. Do you have a “cheat” day?
Not really. I usually eat well during the week, and then let
myself have a bit more leeway on the weekend.
17. Do you drink alcohol?
Yes! (gasp!) I don't drink all that often, but I do love me some
beer, wine, and dark rum.
18. Do you have a workout buddy?
I have two. Chris and my dog Ripley.
19. What is the best thing that has changed about your
life since committing to a healthy lifestyle?
Of course the physical improvements cannot be denied. Less
sluggish, better skin, less bloating. But the empowerment from
becoming physically stronger is equally as uplifting.
In addition to all of that, I think that the passion for other
helping other people on their paths to becoming healthier has greatly
impacted the course of my life. So much so that I am back in school
pursuing a degree in Nutrition and eventually hope to become a Health
and Wellness coach.
(Not to mention a little company called Geeked Out Fitness).
20. What was the last healthy thing you did?
Took my dog Ripley on a long walk in our neighborhood. <3 p="">
