Fall. Spring is incredibly wet here. Fall is nice, just after the tourists go home. :-)

And iPhone. I like my sparkpeople food tracker app, and my fitbit app. But, I must admit, I've never used any other smart phone. And I've gotten so spoiled by the ability to stay in touch (texting, photos, etc) with family that several states away I don't think I could give up my iPhone willingly.

Spring.
When I lived in NH-loved the fall for the crispness of the air & the colors in the trees. But in FL, fall is hurricane season. SO Now I prefer Spring.

Androd or IPhone or Blackberry OR no Smart Phone

Another hard one--
Most times for me, it's car. We have a Ford Fusion that can pull our Jet Ski trailer refitted to hold 2 to 3 kayaks on it. It also has a wooden box that holds all our gear. Pulling the trailer we still get about 25 mpg.

Sunrise or Sunset?.

It's spring and time for kayaking again, so:
A day on the water

Truck or Car
(I still have my old Buick - comfortable, good gas mileage, and lots of trunk space - also can haul 3 kayaks on top!)

Lake as it's more likely to be rough...fun stuff!

(Edited to add...the above was an answer to lake or river paddling)

This would be a tough decision for me!!!
A day on the water or a day on the couch with a great book?

I'd rather they left the time alone as long as it would be in favor of later sunsets. I always hate it in the Fall when sunset comes earlier.

Sit-on or Sit-in kayaks. I live in Florida where either works.

I love to paddle rivers. I don't do the extreme rivers - I know my limit. When I take people out in a kayak for the first time, I make sure to take them on a lake first before going down a river.

In favor of Daylight Saving Time or Leave the Time Alone

(I look forward to DST coming in the spring and going in the fall - it fits me to a tee)

Can I choose Spring? As hot as it gets in Florida, I'll still choose Summer. Cold (& snow) are four letter words.

Lake or river paddles?

I rarely eat sweet potatoes, but I should. I like them and I know they have better vitamins. I eat baked potatoes from Wendy's a lot, but they aren't red. My mother-in-law grows red potatoes in her garden. They are really good FRESH!!!!

Winter or Summer (It's snowing, blowing, and just down right COLD :-(

LOL, I'm with you the commercials are usually the only thing I watch! Not a big fan of televised sports (with the possible exception of the Cubs...)

Red potatoes or sweet potatoes?
I'm a big fan of the sweet potatoes. I'll eat red potatoes occasionally, but they just don't satisfy like a sweet potato! emoticon

I usually use my laptop or cell phone clock (I've usually got at least one of them with me), and even when I wear a watch it's mostly for decoration rather than time-telling!

Butter or margarine?

Personally, I'm a fan of paper but I get most of my news via electronic sources. I still miss the feel of paper, the act of opening and folding a paper, doing a crossword puzzle by hand...it's just not convenient in my life right now!!

Favorite healthy drink: Fruit smoothie or herbal tea? (or other...)

I just got a GPS and now I have to work with it before I really NEED it. I also got the lifetime updates so maybe I'll get better directions in our very rural area.

Walking - I don't have a bike yet.

I like weights, but my gym report shows I do more cardio time than weight.

the gym or home? (I do most of my exercise at the gym if it's not on the water)

We differ here - I go for the Onion (but I'm right there with you on the Honey Crisp)

Apples! Honey Crisp are my favorites with Empire a close second!

Garlic or Onions?

Summer!!!

Chocolate or peanut butter?

I love both but if I could only have one, I'd take peanut butter.

Haha, it's both for me! I love herbal teas at night, but in the morning I need strong black coffee too!

Fruits or vegetables?

Neither. Love the smell of coffee but don't like the taste. Tea doesn't do it for me either.

Coffee - no cream or sugar - need to taste that coffee flavor.
And rivers for sure - they are my favorite - the Jordan River and the White River are my favorites.

My personal favorite is river kayaking, but I realize now I left out ocean kayaking! I've never kayaked on the ocean, but it's on my list of things I still need to try!

Let's try another easier one. This or That: coffee or tea? (If you can think of one, post your own this-or-that after your answer!)

I would say kayaking on a lake, just because I can go by myself and easily get back to my starting point! I don't know many people who kayak and who want to get out at a moments notice, so I often go by myself. I do enjoy the rivers but do not have a lot of experience on them.

LOL Either is fine but it's even better if the wind is up and the paddling is a challenge.

In one of my other Sparkteams, we have a This-or-That game that is a great way to get to know teammates, and learn more about healthy living options!

Let's try one here. Feel free to ask about anything: this-or-that food, exercise, healthy tips, goals, etc. I'll start with an easy one: kayaking on a lake or kayaking on a river?
