don't you just hate icebreakers!? here we goooooooooooo:
a is for age: 30th b-day is in t - 5 days!
b is for breakfast today: the usual- i start craving my oatmeal and egg whites as soon as i wake up, seriously.
c is for currently craving: all things SUGAR!!!! which proves that sugar addiction is real. i'm conducting a little experiment. i have dropped (not quite 100% but a GREAT deal) of all processed foods from my diet and i'm only getting sugar from natural sources (100% real fruit). 1 week down and i have tightened up all over my body; lost inches all over and especially in my waist, and i'm definitely more defined. my muscles are popping out and waving hello!
d is for dinner tonight: stuffed turkey bell peppers w/ brown rice.
e is for fav type of exercise: cardio and weights COMBINED. i teach a class called Total Conditioning- it's a Lifetime Fitness signature format. can you say calorie burning fest?!?! the first time i ever took the class i was extremely intimidated; didn't think i'd ever get the hang of teaching it. now i can't get enough of it.
f is for irrational fear: big boats and open spaces. e.g. cruise ships and places like the grand canyon. yeah i don't get it either.
g is for gross food: most of the time i find that it's a texture thing with people. in this case it's texture and smell for me- chitterlings. no thanks. ever.
h is for height: 5'10. my driver's license proves it.
i is for ice cream: marble slab sweet cream mixed in with chocolate chips. any other time, it's self-serve fro-yo w/ random toppings.
j is for favorite jam: booooy when this particular song comes on in my gym class i get my second & third wind outta nowhere. i could be a tired, sweaty mess and almost to the end of class but this song gives me a surge of energy to finish strong. it's 'Nah Mean' by Mannie Fresh- the edited version played at 140 bmp (super fast) though! pretty sure my members are sick of it by now:)
k is for kids: my unbelievably, awesome, blessing and precious gift from God. my 10 month old. for now.
l is for current location: @ work. blogging. shhhhhhhhhhhh
m is for the most recent way you spent money: i'm TRYING to spend money and find my bday dress!! been to look for it twice now with no luck. still need shoes too. and a bag. i'll find something though. i always do!
n is for something you need: God and His word. every single day. my husband. i need some form of contact with this man on a daily basis (after we go our separate ways in the morning of course). whether it be by text, skype, facebook, email, it doesn't matter. with all this technology, a plain ol phone call was the last thing i thought of, smh.
o is for occupation: IT manager, group fitness instructor, fitness model, entrepreneur.
p is for pet peeve: at the moment, drivers who don't turn right on red. ESPECIALLY downtown. who doesn't know this!?
q is for quote: quoting from songs is cheesy but this one is so powerful to me. helps me push during my workouts:
'i'm a beast, i'm an animal, i'm that monster in the mirror, the headliner, finisher, i'm the closer, winner. best when under pressure with seconds left i show up.
- usher (give me more)
r is for random fact: i eat cool whip like it's ice cream. i add sugar-free chocolate syrup and make a 'mousse'. i've thrown some chocolate PB2 up in there before as well. i can't be the only one doing this...
s is for fav healthy snack(s): 2% greek yogurt & toasted pistachios drizzled with honey. fresh veggies & hummus. peanut butter & celery/apple. freeze dried fruit (especially bananas), banana protein smoothie, cottage cheese w/ fruit...
t is for favorite indulgent treat: key lime pie & grain-sweetened chocolate covered raisins from whole foods. chocolate chip paradise from chilis. my brother is the only person i know that can eat one of these a day and not gain a pound.
u is for something that makes you unique: i prefer grocery shopping over the shopping mall, any day. but you knew that already, right!
v is for fav vegetable: sweet potatoes. they are SO versatile. sweet, savory, fried, baked...
w is for today's workout: 1 hour of total conditioning
x is for the # x rays you've had: besides being born and giving birth, i pretty much stay outta the hospital.
y is for yesterdays highlight: spending aaaaaaaall day with my little man. we attended a 1st birthday party at Gymboree Play&Music (twice in one weekend) and because my LO can't walk yet, i had to help him 'play' for the most part. got my workout for sure.
z is for time zone: CST
welp, that's a snippet of le. take 3 letters (or more, it's all good) and tell me something about you!
