It’s the last week of Best Body Bootcamp! I’ll have a full recap of my progress next Wednesday. Until then, here’s a little survey I snagged this from Tina Reale’s blog.
1. What did you eat for breakfast?
I actually haven’t had breakfast yet! But yesterday I had an egg frittata. Yum.
2. How much water do you drink each day?
I’m not sure. I usually drink a big glass of water (about 20 oz) with my meals, but sometimes a little less at breakfast and lunch. And then whatever I end up going through while working out, which is usually a water bottle’s worth. So maybe 40-50 oz. a day?
3. What is your current favorite workout?
I really like running right now. Zoom zoom. (Not really. But you know.)
4. How many calories do you eat each day?
I don’t count calories, but I did for a few days in January when I was curious about how many calories I was consuming on the Paleo diet. It was roughly between 1400 and 1600 calories. I feel like if you’re eating healthy, with lots of protein and veggies, you don’t have to spend as much time counting calories. If you’re not eating a bunch of junk food that keeps you going back for more, then it’s a lot easier not to overdo it.
5. What are you favorite healthy snacks?
Almond butter and applies! I eat those all the time after working out. I also really like Larabars. But in general I don’t eat a lot of snacks because my meals tend to keep me pretty full.
6. What do you usually eat for lunch?
Usually leftovers from dinner the night before! Or I’ll toss something together like a sweet potato with some salad and a piece of fruit.
7. What is your favorite body part to train?
I’m not sure if I really have a favorite body part to train. I tend to like full body moves that train several things at once. It makes me feel like I’m getting more of a workout.
8. What is your least favorite body part to train?
I’m the weakest in my arms, but that doesn’t really make it my least favorite to train. More like it’s my least favorite in general!
9. What are your “bad” food cravings?
Cupcakes. Especially Magnolia cupcakes. My favorite is their peanut butter and jelly cupcake.
10. Do you take vitamins or supplements?
I used to take a multivitamin but I don’t right now.
11. How often do you eat out?
I eat out probably twice a week, usually on the weekends. It’s a lot easier to avoid eating out now because of our Paleo diet. It’s hard to stick to it at a restaurant and so it’s more motivation to just stay in and eat something we actually like, versus having to eat a salad or go off-plan and feel yucky.
12. Do you eat fast food?
No, now that we’re on Paleo, but I used to. Infrequently though, and typically only when I traveled. I kind of used that as my excuse to indulge in fatty fried foods!
13. Who is your biggest supporter?
My husband, of course!
14. Do you have a gym membership?
Yep! We are members at a new LA Fitness that opened up near us. It’s a nice place.
15. How many hours of sleep do you get each night?
I would say between 8-9 hours. I could definitely sleep more, but I can’t sleep less or I am a zombie!
16. Do you have a “cheat” day?
Right now I’m trying to stick to a very Paleo diet, but I do allow myself a couple of cheat meals during the week. But they aren’t cheat days. Just two meals, on two different days.
17. Do you drink alcohol?
Very rarely. We might have some wine with a nice meal or if we go out, but it’s not something that I consume everyday or even every other day.
18. Do you have a workout buddy?
I go to the gym with Erik but we rarely work out together because we do different things and our cardio / strength days always seem to be off from each other. But it’s nice to go with him and then talk about what we did when we’re finished. He definitely helps me get my butt there!
19. What is the best thing that has changed about your life since committing to a healthy lifestyle?
I think the best thing has just been feeling better about myself and being proud of the changes and progress I’ve made.
20. What is the last healthy thing you did?
I took a pilates class last night with my local Junior League. It was hard! I’m not really sure it’s my thing, either. Laying on the floor really hurt my lower back!
