Healthy Living Survey
|January 15th, 2013||Diary, Food|
1. What did you eat for breakfast?
Today I had one of these Special K Pastry Crisps packs. I woke up feeling kind of sluggish and nauseous because of the pizza I ate last night for dinner, so I’ll be having a spinach smoothie later!
2. How much water do you drink each day?
I need to drink more water, but you all know that from the 240983 posts I do about it.
3. What is your current favorite workout?
Today I’m going to do my 2 mi HIIT run. It’s a fast way to get cardio in for the day.
4. How many calories do you eat each day?
I don’t count calories. I like to eat small meals throughout the day instead of 3 large meals. My stomach tends to digest food easier that way.
5. What are your favorite healthy snacks?
- Greek yogurt and a banana
- Small bowl of cereal
- Fruit salads
- Baby carrots and salsa
6. What do you usually eat for lunch?
It completely depends on how much time I have in the mornings to pack my lunch. When I was working at my old job, I ate out at least 3 times a week. I never eat out at my current job – which is good, because I’m eating better and saving money at the same time! Lately, I’ve been loving my Trader Joes Butternut Squash Ravioli. I love eating them right from the refrigerator.
7. What is your favorite body part to train?
Hmm… I love training my legs. Lunges, squats and leg press are my favorite exercises on the Live Fit Trainer plan. Whenever I see a leg day, I get excited!
8. What is your least favorite body part to train?
Triceps! They are super difficult to train. No matter how much I do, I never see an improvement. Any tips?!
9. What are your “bad” food cravings?
I think everything is OK in moderation. But I’m a totally sucker for frozen yogurt and anything with bread in it.
10. Do you take vitamins or supplements?
11. How often do you eat out?
We don’t really eat out that frequently. Every once in a while we will if we just don’t feel like cooking but don’t want cereal. Recently we’ve been eating out more than usual, but that usually just means we need to go food shopping!
12. Do you eat fast food?
I don’t eat meat, so there’s not many options for meat-less fast food. I’m OK with that.
13. Who is your biggest supporter?
Bry of course! He’s always at my races and pushing me to get off my butt and get over to the gym with him. We enjoy going to the gym together because it allows us to do something together after work that isn’t just watching TV.
14. Do you have a gym membership?
Nope. Luckily, we have a clubhouse gym in our apartment complex so I use that. I think eventually I’ll get a gym membership so I can take some group classes. I do miss those! Otherwise, I’m OK with saving money and just using what I have available at my disposal.
15. How many hours of sleep do you get each night?
I try to get as much as I can. Some nights I’m in bed by 9PM (like last night) and some nights I don’t fall asleep until midnight. It’s a toss up. I was telling Bryan this morning that we actually have to start getting into the habit of going to bed around the same time every night so we won’t be exhausted every day. The nights when we go to bed early just compensate for the crappy sleeps we had earlier in the week.
16. Do you have a “cheat” day?
Not really. I eat what I want in moderation, so there’s never many days when I go all out crazy. Of course, I’m human and I have bad days, but I try my best to make healthy choices 90% of the time. My stomach likes me better that way. I’ve found that with some of my past digestive issues, eating well most of the time can fix some of them.
17. Do you drink alcohol?
I don’t drink all that often. I do love wine, but I don’t go all out that often. Sometimes if it’s a special occasion, I’ll have more than normal. I definitely don’t drink as much as when I was in college!
18. Do you have a workout buddy?
Nope. Sometimes Bryan goes to the gym with me, but besides him I don’t.
19. What is the best thing that has changed about your life since committing to a healthy lifestyle?
Being more comfortable in my skin by making healthy choices instead of crash dieting.
20. What was the last healthy thing you did?
Developing creative ways to get my live fit trainer workouts in!
