Soon after I started my blog, I filled out this Fitness Survey. It was fun to go back and read my answers from almost three years ago. I decided I would fill out the survey again because a lot of my answers have changed!
What do you eat for breakfast?
Shredded wheat or Raisin Bran. Sometimes, dippy eggs.
How much water do you drink a day?
Not as much as I should. I was doing well for awhile but then I got lax about it. I do make sure to carry my water bottle around with me so that water is available. If I choose not to drink it, that's on me.
What is your current favorite workout?
All I do these days is run and lift. I enjoy both, but lately running has been making me very happy... up until the FUNK I just got in!
How many calories do you eat a day?
I do not count my calories and I am soooooo happy, proud, content, and OVERJOYED that I have gotten to the point where I do not have to count calories to feel like I am in control. I never thought I'd just be able to freaking EAT like a normal person, but I can.
The best I can do is guess how many calories I eat per day. It's more than 2,000 but probably not more than 3,000 unless I do a super hard workout like a long race pace run or something like that. Then I'm not going to lie... it could be 3000+.
I don't weight myself, so I am not sure if my weight fluctuates. I do know my clothes have been fitting me for the past several years. The only things that get tight are my tank tops at the back and shoulders but that is from lifting, and I won't complain about that! :)
What are your favorite healthy snacks?
When I snack, it is usually not healthy... unless I am at work, because I am better at controlling what I have on hand to snack on in my classroom. I always have apples and peanut butter filled pretzels.
What do you usually eat for lunch?
Chicken, broccoli, and sweet taters. That is what I pack for lunch 95% of the time. I did a VLOG about healthy lunches you can watch here. Or, you can imagine me, dressed in pajamas, dumping broccoli, sweet taters, and chicken into 5 different Tupperware containers and save yourself some time!
What is your favorite body part to strength train?
Back. Always and forever. My back.
What is your least favorite body part to strength train?
Anything isolated like tricep dips or bicep curls. It's boring.
What are your "bad" food cravings?
Oh man, well lately it has been french fried onions straight from the can! Why do I have those in my house you ask? I was supposed to make a green bean casserole for Thanksgiving, but then I ended up not having to make it. Don't worry, the onions are almost all gone.
Do you take vitamins or supplements?
I do the occasional scoop of protein powder.
Do you eat fast food?
Who is you biggest supporter?
How often do you eat out?
Sadly, we eat at Wendy's like once every two weeks! It was up to once a week a couple months ago... BUT we haven't been to DQ in months so that is good.
Do you have a gym membership?
Yes, Planet Fitness, but I haven't been there since July 3rd.
How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
Anywhere between 7-9. For me, the more the better.
Do you have a cheat day?
I "cheat" every day.
Do you drink alcohol?
What is the best thing that has changed in your life since adapting to a healthy lifestyle?
What is the last healthy thing you did?
My pee was clear.
