Good morning! Hope everyone had a great weekend.
I just spend it working, so didn’t get to experience too many exciting things. I came home last night and just crashed right away. It was SUPER hot over here, I just love the sunshine! I also got far too many bug bites this past weekend, my legs are non stop itchy!! Not the best feeling ever.
We also had the fun experience of watching fellow Victorian, Ryan Cochrane receive his silver medal in the 1500 freestyle! It was such a good race and super exciting to watch!
Its really cool to watch him race, because we actually used to swim together! So, its pretty neat to see him out at the Olympics and actually medal!
Pretty darn amazing. Everyone is super happy for him, of course! What an incredible accomplishment for anyone!
Let’s get straight to it…
1. Strength training or cardio?
*one of my favourite workouts, incorporating some fun burpees!*
This is a tough one for my to choose between. I definitely am a spin junky, but I really love crossfit/GPP style workouts that include pushups, goblet squats, walking lunges, and all those fun strength training moves! I love them both equally, although right now my workouts aren’t as intense as I’d like them to be. Fitness is going to be there forever, my bone health, however is not if I don’t take care of it now. The most important thing to me, is being confident in my body and what it does for me daily!
2. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
Definitely breakfast. I think this is the clear winner for me. I’d be a happy chick if I could build all of my meals to look like breakfast Breakfast for breakfast, for lunch, and for dinner is a win in my books. Oh and snacks too. I’m basically a classy breakfast snob.
3. Dress up or workout clothes?
My favourite thing is to get all dolled up for the day or night. I like to put effort in my appearance, because it personally makes me feel better about myself and puts me in a more positive light looking my best. I just enjoy girly things. However, if you ever see my at home I’ll be totally decked out in my comfy sweatpants and a t-shirt.
4. Wine or beer?
*homemade vodka lemonades are just about my favourite thing to drink during the summer…fine and winter too.*
Well, since I despise beer, I’d have to go with wine. I definitely enjoy a nice glass of white wine every now and again. If I had the choice of any liquor though, I’d have to say a grey goose cocktail is definitely my favourite. A nice cocktail over the weekend with friends is something I am a-okay with!
5. Peanut butter or almond butter?
Can I choose cashew butter instead? Its so creamy and just yummy. For this one, I’d have to say I prefer almond butter on this one. I actually love peanut flour, but don’t care for the peanut butter taste. I think it’s a bit too savoury tasting? And I hate how sticky it is. Okay, I guess its a texture thing. I’m odd about the textures of foods. Give me almond, cashew, walnut, or coconut butter and I’ll use it all day, everyday!
6. Heels or flats?
*Some of my favourite sparkly heels, I just love these things. They are so pretty.*
I almost never go a day without wearing heels. I’m a little bit of a shorty, so I can definitely rock out the heels. For some reason, I just can’t get with the flats. I used to live in them, but over the past year or so I’ve grown to love my heels. Even at work, while standing for hours I still prefer the heels look, although my feet do hurt by the end of the night. There are some super cute flats out there of course, I just don’t think I pull them off as well.
7. The actual cake or the frosting?
*The cutest cupcakes ever! How adorable are these little bees and flowers! Can’t get enough of these designs. Seriously, I could never have that precision!*
FROSTING!! I never liked cake as a kid and always ate the frosting on my friends cake. I’d always pick the ice cream cake to have at my parties, since I was never a cake gal.
8. Spring, summer, fall, or winter?
*Hot chocolate; made with coconut milk, raw cacao powder, and stevia. Yummmm.*
Oh man, I swear whenever a new season turns over I say that one is my favourite. I love each season for different reasons.
Spring = flowers, light and cool weather, and colourful and fun clothes, Easter.
Fall = pumpkin, leaves blowing, cooler weather, crisp autumn scents, warm meals, my birthday!, Halloween, and Thanksgiving.
Winter = snow, holidays, hot cocoa, family time, cute sweaters, soups, boots, Christmas, and New Years.
Summer = fun dresses, bright colours, smoothies, and salads, and Canada Day.
9. Real animal or stuffed animal?
*My precious kitty, Miley. What a cutie cat is she?*
Real animals! I miss my little cats. (Crazy cat lady over here). I want to get a little kitten or puppy I can play with. I miss that bonding time with animals. And it’s a great excuse to get outdoors and move more!
10. Bright or light?
*Green cookie dough! I love this snack! Yes, its a little obnoxious looking. But, its delicious!*
Bright, bright baby. I live for the bright clothing and nails right now. Its a joy! And makes everything more visually pleasing, to me. I even like to get a little crazy and eat bright foods. Give me that green cookie dough.
Alright, I’m off for now.
Your turn! Answer on or all of the questions above, or do it yourself!
Hope you all have a super fantastic Monday!!
