Spark Coach Quiz!

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

This is one of the feature articles I thought I'd answer it myself because I always like these things, and seeing others' responses too!

In my fridge you'll always find:
water, freggies and yogurt

My favorite go-to exercise:
fitness dvds, walking/hiking

When I usually work out:
right after work

My biggest temptation/obstacle:
sweets, and salty things. I don't buy unhealthy so I won't be tempted. Other obstacles are feeling too tired or giving in with my boyfriend to indulge (he'll say to me, but dear, we haven't had pizza in forever! its okay...)

Favorite trick for staying motivated:
knowing I'll regret it if I don't work out! knowing its good for me. knowing it will pay off. because I'm testing myself to see how fit I really can be.

In my home gym you'll find:
lots of fitness dvds, weights, resistance bands, yoga mat

In the grocery store, I usually head for ___ first:
well the way grocery stores are usually set up is produce first. So I usually stock up on all freggies and then get whatever else I need specifically from my list.

My personal motto is:
If you don't like something, do something about it. I can't stress this enough. I have a pet peeve with people who make excuses all the time or blame things beyond themselves, when they really do have some control over a situation. I know you can't control everything, but if there's something you can do, do it, and don't complain about why you're unhappy. This applies pretty much everywhere in life; if you don't like your job, do something about it, if you aren't happy with your relationships, try to fix them, if you don't like your body, work on it. emoticon

    I feel like everyone gets a certain amount of rant time, but after that, if they're not doing something about the thing about which they're complaining, they lose my ear. Hate your job? Are you trying to better your relationship with your boss? Are you trying to find a new one? Or are you going in, day in, day out, not doing anything to fix it, but whining? No love. Same with weight loss. If you think you're fat, but don't want to fix it, then I have a limit to how long I'll listen before I start telling you to suck it up!

Great quiz!

    I completely agree with your motto. I don't feel bad for anyone who won't help themselves. I cannot stand it when people whine about things that they are perfectly able to change. Like you said, some things are out of our control, but things like jobs, significant others, or weight, if you don't like it, do something about it.
