I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m a sucker for surveys. Back in the early 2000s, when email was still super popular, I would go crazy sending out surveys to all of my friends. The medium has changed, but I sure haven’t! So when I saw this one on Tina’s site yesterday, I just had to do it for Fitness Friday.
1. What did you eat for breakfast?
Same ol’ same ol’: Greek yogurt with granola and fruit. Yum!
2. How much water do you drink a day?
Oh gosh, I don’t even know. Since I got my 22 oz. Life Factory bottle, I have been drinking so much water. On a typical day, I go through at least four of those, plus whatever I have during my workout. I find that the more I drink water, the more I crave it – not a bad situation to be in!
3. What is your current favorite workout?
I love running the best, but I’ve really been enjoying the TurboKick classes I’ve been going to recently! They kick my butt and I get really sweaty afterward – my definition of a good workout!
4. How many calories do you eat a day?
Ummmm way more than I should. If I were to reign in the constant snacking, I would probably be around 1700 or so.
5. What are your favorite healthy snacks?
I love grabbing a Chobani cup because they’re flavorful, “real”, full of protein, and the perfect snack size.
I also love hummus and veggies. I could snack on that combo all day!
6. What do you usually eat for lunch?
It really depends. Unlike my breakfasts, my lunches are a wide variety of foods. Sometimes I’ll do a sandwich, sometimes a salad or leftovers, and other times a simple snack plate sounds just right.
7. What is your favorite body part to strength train?
I loooooove strengthening my legs. In the past year or so I’ve been noticing muscle in my quads, and it makes me giddy every time notice them. Unfortunately, I have a body type that doesn’t show muscle definition no matter how hard I try (in my arms, for example, it just looks bulky…no long, toned, muscle-y arms for me). That was one gene I would have been ok not inheriting.
8. What is your least favorite body part to strength train?
I really don’t have a least favorite. I guess I don’t work on my calves too much, because as it is, over the past three or so years since I’ve begun working out, they’ve grown to the point that it’s hard to find jeans that fit!
9. What are your “bad” food cravings?
Oh lord. What don’t I crave?? Crackers and tortilla chips are by far my worst, but I crave chocolate very often, too.
10. Do you take vitamins or supplements?
Yep, daily. I take fiber, multivitamins, and calcium every morning. Sometimes, if I’ve been feeling “off”, I’ll take some probiotics.
11. How often do you eat out?
Not very often. We used to go out weekly, but that gets expensive and unhealthy, so it’s best to eat at home.
12. Do you eat fast food?
If you define fast food as McDonalds, Burger King, and Chik-fil-A, then heck no. But I know some people consider Subway and Panera to be fast food, and I eat at those places often.
13. Who is your biggest supporter?
My family and Dan. Pretty much every family member is always so supportive and encouraging, especially my parents, and Dan is the same way. I’m very blessed.
14. Do you have a gym membership?
Yep! Well, through August I do. And I’m loving it.
15. How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
Anywhere from 6-8. Six hours is dangerously close to “don’t-go-near-Olivia-because-she’ll-rip-your-head-off” zone. (Read: I get cranky with little sleep.)
16. Do you have a “cheat”day?
Every day is a “cheat day” for me. I allow myself to have dessert or chocolate to maintain my sanity and because, let’s face it, I can’t live without those foods!
17. Do you drink alcohol?
Not really. I’ll have a glass of wine or a hard cider here and there, but that’s once, maybe twice a week.
18. Do you have a workout buddy?
I’m definitely more of what they call a “cat runner”. I use my workouts as alone time, time for me to think, so I rarely exercise with a buddy. But when I do, it’s always a lot of fun!
19. What is the best thing that has changed about your life since committing to a healthy lifestyle?
I love this question. Everything has changed. My outlook, my mentality, my positivity, my physical, mental, and emotional strength, and last but definitely not least, my body/body image. Adapting and committing to a healthy lifestyle has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
20. What was the last healthy thing you did?
I took the morning off from working out. I need my rest days! 🙂
