Fitness Survey

It has been a month of Sundays since I wrote a fitness post (which probably explains why I've put on about 4 pounds). Kris and I are really hitting the health and fitness lifestyle hard this week because we are tired of the yo-yoing. When I saw this fitness survey on Nikki's blog I knew I had to take it and share with you.

1. What did you eat for breakfast? Mixed nuts and a banana.

2. How much water do you drink a day? About 60 ounces. A lot more now that I gave up soft drinks.

3. What is your current favorite workout? I love yoga and walking. Those are my all time faves.

4. How many calories do you eat a day? 1200 is my goal, but I don’t get too mad at myself if I reach 1400. I’m doing better this week than I have in a long time.

5. What are your favorite healthy snacks? Apples. I love apples!

6. What do you usually eat for lunch? I usually pack my lunch or grab the lite nutty mixed up salad at Jason’s Deli.

7. What is your favorite body part to strength train? Arms.

8. What is your least favorite body part to strength train? Thighs, which are what needs it the most.

9. What are your “bad” food cravings? Sweets. I’m like a sugar-aholic

10. Do you take vitamins or supplements? No. I know I should, but I just don’t.

11. How often do you eat out? Once or twice a week. More often lunch than anything.

12. Do you eat fast food? Sometimes, but not often. It makes me feel gross.

13. Who is your biggest supporter? My husband.

14. Do you have a gym membership? Yes, well a yoga studio membership.

15. How many hours of sleep do you get a night? 6-8 hours

16. Do you have a “cheat” day? No, I try not to. I find that if I let myself cheat I have a harder time not cheating the next day. It’s easier for me to just stick to it. Cheat days have been my downfall every single time I’ve tried to diet.

17. Do you drink alcohol? Yes, I’m a wino. Which I don't consider a vice.

18. Do you have a workout buddy? Not really. I walk with my husband sometimes, but mostly I go it alone.

19. What is the best thing that has changed about your life since committing to a healthy lifestyle? How I feel about myself. One healthy choice leads to another and I love how healthy choices make me feel.

20. What was the last healthy thing you did? Got up at 6am to workout!



  1. Good for you getting up early to workout! I need my motivation back to do that. I've only been about once every two weeks to do it. And help me give up diet coke...I shudder when I say that because I don't really want to, but I know I need to.

  2. I am seriously in a fitness rut right now. I need to find some motivation to get to the gym more. 2x a week just isn't getting me to my goal, lol wonder why!
    Anyway, loving your blog! I'm following!
    I'm back to blogging again, but with a different name. Check it out if you get a chance.

  3. Hi from a fellow sweet tooth! Love this survey and think you're doing amazing. I may have to post my answers on my blog, too (with credit of course.) :) Nice to "meet" you.

  4. Hi great post,as a health expert want to say a little,"Save time at the gym with this 10-minute cardioid/sculpt session: Hop on a treadmill holding a three- to five-pound dumbbell in each hand, and set the speed to a brisk walk. Do a one-minute set each of shoulder presses, biceps curls, triceps extensions, side laterals, front laterals and standing triceps kickbacks one after another as you walk. I's an amazing upper-body challenge that also gets your heart pumping. Do this series two or three times each week. As you improve, work up to doing four-minute sets." Thanks.
