I had plans to get up early this morning to workout before the day, but then my alarm clock went off and I laughed because the time seemed silly in that moment. I’ll take the extra hour, thank you very much.
Originally, I was going to recap the rest of the Healthy Living Summit, oops. Clearly I’m not so I’ll save that last recap for a rainy day.
* Overnight pumpkin oat bran *
Fall is definitely coming, there was a slight breeze in the air today and it made me sad the nice weather will soon be leaving. Although, I love fall, so I’m pretty excited for all that’s to come then! While the flowers are still here I had to take some pretty pictures. Bye colourful flowers, hello creepy leaf-less trees.
Let’s get to it.
Do you love almond butter or coconut butter more?
Let’s just state the obvious. I’m a coconut butter lover.
It tastes oh so sinful. Or maybe that’s just the price tag talking.
I love it by itself, on protein muffins, oats, protein pudding, roasted squash, so just about anything.
Do you love low intensity or high intensity workouts more?
Since I’m still trying to get my hormone issues figured out, I’ve being doing lots of lower intensity workouts.
However, I definitely prefer high intensity workouts. They are so fun and I am missing them big time. I just know that putting off these workouts is the best thing for me right now.
Fitness will always be an option in the future, but my health and bone strength will be put at risk if I don’t take care of these issues now. Treating my body better is a great enough feeling for me, besides relying on the intense workouts for the endorphins.
Do you love summer or fall more?
I love each season for different reasons and don’t really have a preference.
I love summer time for the fresh foods, copious amounts of fresh and local vegetables and fruits, and of course the warm weather.
But, I enjoy fall because my BIRTHDAY is in the fall, pumpkins, cinnamon, hot beverages, and everything that comes along with that season.
Do you love waffles or pancakes more?
Pancakes are the definite winner for me!
I don’t think I ever find myself craving waffles much, and enjoy how easy pancakes are to make.
Versatile and delicious to top it all off!
Do you love being lazy or being productive?
There are times when I love to just be lazy and unproductive, but those aren’t regular occurrences. I’m trying to slow myself down and enjoy spending every minute in the moment, without pursuing distractions.
Sometimes its good to be along with your thoughts and gain perspective into what is happening in your life. I could use more of those moments where I really allow myself to be along with my thoughts.
It’s important to be still and accept where I am in life. I don’t find that to be lazy, but to just gain insite.
However, there’s a time to be productive to when you want your dreams to become your reality.
Do you love apples or oranges more?
Apples for sure.
Except when Christmas time comes around and I will definitely reach for the mandarin oranges. (or Christmas oranges as well call them over here!)
Oh my, this just made me super duper excited for Christmas time! Okay, its only September I should get ahold of myself.
Do you love seafood or meat more?
I always wish I loved seafood, well I can’t say I don’t since I’ve technically never tried it (don’t yell at me).
Its just never been appealing to me. So, with that I’d have to say meat.
Do you love being off the market or being single more?
I may be in the total minority, but I’m the girl that has never dreamed of having a “fairytale wedding” or finding my “prince charming”. I actually don’t ever want to get married, I don’t have anything against it of course, just feel its not for me.
And I actually enjoy being single. Sometimes I wish I wasn’t, but then I always think that I’d have to give up so much for another person (yikes, that sounds super selfish ha ha).
I’m also not in the healthiest place to consider a relationship anyways. Ask me again in 5 years and maybe I’ll have changed my mind.
Plus, now I don’t have to share my single protein muffins this way;)
Off to enjoy the day! Do this survey too, its a fun one!
Do you like pancakes or waffles more?
Or answer any of the questions!
Love to all of you. Happy Thursday!
