A is for ABOVE and BEYOND...Does competition give you an extra push?
Most of the time is does. I try to excel at everything I do, so the competition is not against another person as much as against myself to not fail.
B is for BLC rounds... Newbie?(first BLC round) Oldie?(1-3 rounds) Goldie?(long time BLCer)? Former BLC team(s)?
This is my second time as a Tiger. Hard to believe but I actually won this the last time.

I'm a early bird
F is for FURRY have?
I have a cat, a dog, and a rabbit. Will be getting chickens soon
G is for GROCERIES...what do you fill your cart with?
I love to cook and to try new recipes so I spend most of my time while grocery shopping in the fresh produce section. I love finding new things I've never tried. So that is what you'll find the most of in my cart, fresh veggies and fruit.
H is for HOME...where do you call home?
Small town of about 2500 people in Ohio.
I is for INSPIRE...who or what is your roll model/inspiration?
My parents are, without them I would never have become the person I am today.

I'm a paint support associate for the Whirpool Corporation. I work at the Kitchenaid division. Yes we build the kitchenaid mixer.

When short on time I try for a high impact workout like Jillians 30 day shred or a kettlebell workout

Not sure of the exact ounce amount I just know it is alot. I'll have to measure my water cup at home and at work to see
P is for PRODUCE...How many fruits and veggies do you consume daily?
Fruits are usually 2 - 3 a day. Veggies are probably in the 5 - 7 range. The more veggies I can work in the happier I am.
Q is for QUOTE...what's your favorite?
Never tell a person how to do a job, rather tell them what needs to be done and their ingenuity will amaze you.
R is for ROUTINE...Average number of days and minutes you exercise weekly?
I try to get 6 days of exercise in, but I love to walk and walk everyday.

Strangely enough I would go to Montana. I have wanted to go there for a while just to see the open expanse of land and go fly fishing.
W is for WEIGHT WORKOUT...Do you follow a consistent ST program?
I like to change my workouts around. I do everything at my home so I like to add variety to keep from getting bored with one routine
X is for "X" MARKS THE SPOT...What do you want to see happen these 12 weeks, other than the scale move?
The biggest thing is not the weight loss as much as to continue to develop a new way of life. A healthy life and everyday is a new day to learn just a little bit more to achieve that goal.
Y is for YESTERDAY...Do you dwell on poor choices or allow them to push you forward?
I don't dwell on bad choices. I can't go back in time and change it, but I can learn from it and try not to do it again.
Z is for one weight loss tool you couldn't live without?
Sparkpeople is the one tool I don't think I could live without. There is a world of knowledge here and so many great people encouraging and supporting one another to achieve the same goal. A Happy Healthy Life!

    Ooh, chickens! Please post about them when they arrive. We may get some next year, but might start bee keeping first.

You sound like a great boss.
