I took this survey from Christina and decided to fill it out, even though I wasn’t tagged by anyone.
1. Run/workout in the heat and humidity or freezing cold temps and snow?
I’ve never ran in the cold winter time. I’m a fair weather runner and have ran in 35ºC temperatures. I can’t stand the lung burn when you get while exercising outside in the chilly weather.
2. Washboard abs or flat abs?
On females, I’d rather flat abs, or a semi-defined stomach. I find that washboard abs look a little funky on girls.
3. Dr. Oz or The Doctors?
I don’t have cable. No idea.
4. Cardio or strength?
Both! I don’t say “today is a strength day” or “today is a cardio day” or anything like that. I just go to yoga when I feel like it, go on runs when I’m craving it, and go to CrossFit and not know what the heck is going to be up on the board that day.
5. Cravings: Protein or carbs?
I’m stealing Christina’s answer: I rarely crave protein – hopefully because I get enough. Who doesn’t crave carbs? I could sit around and eat pita chips, crackers, and bread for hours. Pasta bores me though.
6. Jillian Michaels or Bob Harper?
My boyfriend and I don’t have cable TV anymore, so I never really got into their television shows. Can I just say neither?
8. To train: Upper body or Lower body?
No preference. Though, my CrossFit coaches have been getting me to work my shoulder strength more. Which is sooo difficult.
9. Protein powder or food with protein?
Food with protein, for sure. Gimmie dat chicken breast!
10. Lunges or squats?
Squats are easier on my right knee. When I do lunges I sometimes bow my right knee inwards, which causes a bit of pain on my knee cap. Something “flicks” and it can be painful! I hate wall balls (at CrossFit) and have been known to skip classes if they’re on the website for the WOD (workout of the day)!
11. Sweet or salty?
Sweet. They don’t call me candy’ girl for nothin.
12. Workout attire: cute or comfy?
I don’t think anyone intends to buy ugly or uncomfortable workout clothes. I wear anything from Lululemon, Nike, to Old Navy.
13. Body Pump or Heavy lifting?
I went to a Muscle Pump class at the local YMCA and the instructor was huffing and puffing her way through movements, and allowing us breaks, so I kept on goin’. I really didn’t enjoy it at all. I’d rather stick to something more extreme like CrossFit. TRACTOR FLIPS! Who does that? Oh. Me.
We also like doing Frog jump at CrossFit too, lol.
14. Yoga or Pilates?
Yoga is good, only if I have an amazing instructor. I haven’t tried Pilates yet. I don’t even know what that entails. Is it just a fancier name for Yoga?
15. Nike or Adidas?
NIKE! Look at my hot pink Nike Free’s I got last year.
16. Running on the treadmill or outdoors?
I can run on the treadmill, longer than I can by myself outdoors. I like the outdoors though too, and have been doing a lot of that this summer with my co-worker L!
17. Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s?
I’ve never been to either of them! Anyone want to go with me?
18. Summer or Winter Olympics?
I like the summer olympics, gymnastics is amazing, trampoline is so silly, and diving. Diving is neat. Why wouldn’t there be diving in the winter olympics? It’s indoors….anyway, doesn’t really matter to me lol.
I’m part gymnast, didn’t you know? My strong point: the leg flail jump. That or I’m channeling Molly Shannon, from Saturday Night Live.
19. Exercise classes or Exercise videos?
Classes. I haven’t really given exercise videos a chance. I like classes because if I’m doing something wrong I can be corrected by the instructor.
20. Steamed veggies or roasted veggies?
Steamed asparagus, roasted potatoes. Ha. Got you on that one, didn’t I.
