Healthy Living Survey

by forloveofcarrots on February 28, 2013

Hey there! Hope your day is off to a good start! I am enjoying my favorite time of day which happens to be the moment I sit down at my desk to enjoy my coffee and type up this blog post.

Today I have a fun little survey that I saw on Tina’s blog last week and new I wanted to get in on it as well. So without further ado

1.) What did you have for breakfast?

Plain greek yogurt with 1 scoop protein powder some Cascadian farms granola, blueberries, banana and chia seeds. Looks something like this

2.) How much water do you drink a day?
Sooooo freaking much water. I really couldn’t tell you the exact amount but sometimes I think I drink too much water.

3.) What is your current favorite workout?
Best Body Bootcamp, however tomorrow is the last day and I am already freaking out about what I am going to do for the next month until the next round of bootcamp begins! Any suggestions??

4.) How many calories do you eat each day?
I do not count calories, I have no idea. I eat when I am hungry and stop when I am full. I typically eat breakfast lunch and dinner with a snack between breakfast and lunch and a snack between lunch and dinner.

5.) What are you favorite healthy snacks?
My go to’s are usually fruit, veggies and hummus or greek yogurt. I am a fan on my protein bites, but haven’t made them in a while.

6.) What do you usually eat for lunch?
A giant salad with as much in it as possible.
With a piece of fruit or greek yogurt and usually something crunchy along side. I always crave something crunchy at lunch time like pretzels or crackers.

7.) What is your favorite body part to train?
I would have to say my arms, I can see the most change/ definition in them.

8.) What is your least favorite body part to train?

My legs! I don’t know why I just hate it, squats and lunges are the death of me. I would prefer just to run but in an effort to challenge myself I suck it up and train my legs.

9.) What are you bad food cravings?
I don’t like this question. No such thing as bad food cravings, everything in moderation. I guess the fact that I want to eat 16 handles everyday could be seen as bad..

10.) Do you take vitamins or supplements?
Yessss I am a huge advocate for vitamins!!! I take D-3, omega 3s and a probiotic.

11.) How often do you eat out?
Like once or twice a week, we do the majority of our eating out on the weekends.

12.) Do you eat fast food?

Nope, I have never been someone who eats fast food. I wasn’t brought up to eat it so the times I have had it I ALWAYS feel sick after. I have Subway on occasion but I don’t really consider that fast food.

13.) Who is your biggest supporter?

This is a hard question because I actually think I have a lot of amazing supporters in my life. I would have to say my parents and Jeff. My friends are also wonderful supports to me!

14.) Do you have a gym membership?
Yes, to the Edge. I love it.

15.) How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
Usually 7-8 hours of sleep. If I could go to bed at 7pm some nights I totally would. But I also want to be able to spend time with Jeff so I don’t.

16.) Do you have a “cheat” day?
No, I eat what I want when I want. I used to do this cheat day mumbo jumbo and it ended up being a gorge yourself day.

17.) Do you drink alcohol?

Yes, I enjoy my wine!

18.) Do you have a workout buddy?
Nope and I am just fine with that. I am a get in and get out type of person when it comes to working out so I like to keep to myself get my workout done and go.

19.) What is the best thing that has changed about your life since committing to a healthy lifestyle?

I have found a confidence in myself that I never knew I had. Maybe that just comes with age and feeling like I am growing into my own skin but I guess it has taught me how to take pride in the person that I am.

20.) What is the last healthy thing you did?
Got my workout in the morning and ate a healthy breakfast.

Your turn! Answer any of the questions in the comments section.

What is the best thing that has changed about your life since committing to a healthy lifestyle?

I saw the question too about bad food cravings and thought it was extremely oddly worded.

Whoops, cut me off. Anyways since adopting a more healthy lifestyle (from binge drinking early in college) I’ve since be able to start running and actually being able to enjoy running LOL.

You are an amazing runner and I hope to be able to run as fast as you or run with you some day!

It should have read what foods do you think are bad, in which I would have responded most white condiments especially sour cream and cream cheese and mushrooms lol


Alex @ therunwithin February 28, 2013 at 3:51 pm

haha I know it took you a while to come around but I am sooo glad you did and that you liked it! I would have felt bad if you didn’t enjoy it as much as I do.

I drink a ton of water too. It’s seriously a problem. Maybe we should form a society: binge water drinkers anonymous?

counting calories are no fun!! I can’t believe how much I used to be obsessed with reading labels, now its an after thought!


cori @olivetorun February 28, 2013 at 9:32 pm

Best thing I’ve done since deciding to live a healthy lifestyle: I was able to get to the point where I no longer use my inhaler :) I run marathons now instead.
