Hey everyone! Happy weekend to you! This weekend is actually a pretty busy one for me…bright and early this morning, I was up and at ‘em in order to get myself ready for a fun weekend away in Burlington, VT!
This weekend is my friend Kathryn’s bachelorette party, and we’ll all be celebrating out on the beach today, followed by a fun evening out in the Burlington area. Needless to say, it’s gonna be a blast!
Before leaving the house, I made myself a quick breakfast to hold me over for the ride ahead…
We had one egg left in the house, so I scrambled that up with about 1/3 cup egg whites and topped it with some ketchup.
I also had a delicious banana cinnamon chip muffin, which I actually made yesterday afternoon.
To make ‘em, I simply used my regular banana muffin recipe (but without any healthified substitutions) and added in about 1 cup of cinnamon chips. Deeeeeelish.
So I thought today would be a great opportunity for some survey fun…
Thanks to Paige, then Ashley, then Khushboo, I found myself another little survey to play with (you guys know I love me some surveys). This one seemed too good to pass up on…especially since we’re talkin’ shop now, so here we go!
This or That? – Health & Fitness Style!
1. Run/workout in the heat and humidity or freezing temps and snow?
Well, considering most of my workouts take place indoors, I’d have to say that this question really doesn’t affect my workouts all that much. BUT, if I had to choose, I guess I’d say I’d take the heat…working out with numb fingers and toes is NOT fun.
2. Have washboard abs or flat abs?
Currently, I’m working towards neither. But if I was, I’m going to cheat and say I’d want a mix of both. I don’t really think I have the body type that was blessed with having a tightly toned tummy, but a little definition is always welcomed.
I do love me some washboard abs on Ryan Reynolds though…
3. Dr. Oz or The Doctors?
The Doctors. I swear, anytime I turn that show on, they’re always talking about a topic where I’m like, “Oh my gosh, I neeeed to know about this!”
4. Cardio or strength?
Always love strength training…there’s so many different options out there! My current favorite is yoga – it does a whole lot more than people realize.
5. Cravings: Protein or carbs?
I have been a carb queen all my life. I love them both, but I almost always reach for the carbs first.
6. Jillian Michaels or Bob Harper?
As a person or as a trainer? I’ll have to assume trainer, and since I’ve only been “trained” by Jillian by way of DVD’s in my living room, I’ll have to choose her. She can be pretty intense, but I don’t mind it…I yell right back at her.
7. Frozen Yogurt or Ice Cream?
Whaaaat?!? This is like asking a mom to try and choose her favorite child! (although, it’s okay mom…we know who your favorite is )
For me, it totally depends on the day…or how much money I want to spend.
‘Cuz this gal’s fro yo cups are not cheap.
8. To train: Upper body or Lower body?
9. Protein powder or food with protein?
Overall, I’m mostly a fan of food with protein. Nut butter, beans, and tuna fish would have to be some of my favorites. I do enjoy a good smoothie now and then with protein powder, but rarely will I just drink a plain ‘ol protein shake.
10. Lunges or squats?
Squats. Actually, no, lunges. Errr…how ‘bout squats AND lunges?
11. Sweet or salty?
I think we all know the answer to this one…
12. Workout attire: cute or comfy?
I feel like I’m really stinkin’ it up with this survey. I vote cute AND comfy! It’s totally possible.
Maybe just don’t layer the way I do.
13. Body Pump or Heavy lifting?
Love me some Body Pump! I miss it so, so much.
14. Yoga or Pilates?
I’ve been loving it lately. So many great options and varieties out there!
15. Nike or Adidas?
I already loved the RealFlex Transitions, but these have quickly become my new favorite sneaker.
16. Running on the treadmill or outdoors?
I’m a treadmiller…probably one of the few out there on the planet. But hey, if you’ve got a fun treadmill routine, then you’re good to go, right?
17. Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s?
Trader Joe’s!! Now that it’s in town, I’m a little scared for my wallet.
18. Summer or Winter Olympics?
Summer. I’ve been loving watching the gymnastics lately…which has also been the culprit of a later-than-usual bedtime on more than one occasion. Oops.
20. Steamed veggies or roasted veggies?
Roasted, no doubt about it!
Now let’s hear some of your answers!
Feel free to share any that stand out for you
