Forest ABCs of Me (Round 21)

Friday, January 11, 2013

A is for ABOVE and BEYOND...Does competition push you? Competition does push me to try harder. I find competing to better myself the most motivating.

B is for BLC rounds... Newbie?(first BLC round) Oldie?(1-3 rounds) Goldie?(long time BLCer)? Former BLC team(s)? Definately a Goldie (thank goodness they don't have a Moldie catagory). All but one of my rounds was as a Pixie.

C is for CHILDREN...you have? I have 2 girls who are soon to turn 9 and 11.

D is for DOWNFALL...what's you're biggest temptation? unhealthy snacking. My meals are almost always healthy, but it is snacks that can get me in trouble at times.

E is for EARLY Bird or Night Owl? Definately and early bird. I rarely sleep past 5:30am.

F is for FURRY FRIENDS...you have? I have a german shepard dog and 2 cats

G is for GROCERIES...what do you fill your cart with? Lots of freggies and I always have greek yogurt in the fridge.

H is for HOME...where do you call home? Born, raised and still live in MA. I can't picture not being a New Englander.

I is for INSPIRE...who or what is your roll model/inspiration? Right now my inspiration is to make my 40s my healthiest decade and to pass my healthy habits on to my kids (and maybe even inspire my husband).

J is for JOB...What do you do for a living? I am a supervisor at a facility for developmentally disabled adults.

K is for KEEP IT SIMPLE...What's your healthy focus when short on time? Honestly it's planning. When I know I am short on time, if I have not planned food and fitness ahead, I won't make the best choices.

L is for LOG...Do you use the Nutrition and Fitness trackers? I have been using them faithfully for the last 2 weeks and plan to continue.

M is for MARRIED, Single, Involved? I have been happily married for 13 years.

N is for NAME...What's the meaning behind your sparkname? My spark name means that I am, and will always be a work in progress. Even when I reach goal, the journey is not over.

O is for OUNCES...How many ounces of water do you consume on a daily basis? Lately, it has been 48 ounces. I need to get it back up to 64 ounces.

P is for PRODUCE...How many fruits and veggies do you consume daily? I do pretty good with this one. I usually have 3 fruits and 2 veggies a day. I incorporate one or the other with every meal and snack.

Q is for QUOTE...what's your favorite? I may not be the strongest, and I may not be the fastest, but I will be darned if I'm not trying my hardest!

R is for ROUTINE...Average number of days and minutes you exercise weekly? I'm exercising 7 days a week right now. I have 2 days that are only 10 - 15 minutes, but the other 5 I am averaging 40 - 45 miutes.

S is for STATURE...How tall are you? I am 5'4" (alas I used to be 5" 4.5", but I have started to shrink)

T is for TIME...What time zone are you in? Eastern

U is for UNWIND...What is your favorite pass time or hobby? I love to read and there are a couple of TV shows I love to watch.

V is for VACATION...If you could travel anywhere, what destination would you choose? I would love to see Hawaii someday.

W is for WEIGHT WORKOUT...Do you follow a consistent ST program? Yes, I am doing the January Jumpstart which uses Coach Nicole videos for ST.

X is for "X" MARKS THE SPOT...What do you want to see happen these 12 weeks, other than the scale move? I want to get toned and improve my 5K time.

Y is for YESTERDAY...Do you dwell on poor choices or allow them to push you forward? I definately let them push me forward!

Z is for ZERO...name one weight loss tool you couldn't live without?
My attitude - when it's in the right place, I can acomplish anything!

    Should I just say "attitude" when you start to drop away from now on?
