Good morning! I hope your Tuesday is moving along well.
I saw these 50 questions on Katie’s blog last week week, and I thought it would be a fun way to share some random facts with you. I love a good survey with fun questions! So here we go…
What are you wearing? Workout capris, an Under Armour t-shirt and a gray hoodie. I worked out this afternoon, and never changed. I am such a cliche.
Ever been in love? Yes…
Ever had a terrible breakup? Yes…
How tall are you? 5’5″
How much do you weigh? I think I am around 115lbs. I have not weighed myself in over a year. I found I was weighing myself way too much. I am comfortable with my weight, and I do not feel it is necessary right now.
Any tattoos? Not my thing – way too permanent.
Any piercings? One in both ears. I debated a belly button ring in college, but never got around to it.
OTP (one true pair, favorite fictional couple)? Very original question…Favorite TRUE couple: Barack & Michelle Obama…FICTIONAL couple: Scarlett O’Hara & Rhett Butler.
Favorite show? Nashville reigns supreme these days for me.
Favorite bands? Mumford & Sons, Florida Georgia Line and One Republic. I am sure there are many more, but those come to mind immediately! I was also reminded of how much I loved Pearl Jam when they closed out the night when we went to the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
Something you miss? Mom, Lesley and my Nana.
Favorite song? My current favorite is “Shake it Off” which is Taylor Swift’s latest.
Zodiac sign? Libra
Quality you look for in a partner? Humor, strength, passion, shared values and intelligence.
Favorite Quote? So hard, because I happen to love many quotes, but here is a particular favorite of mine that I saw on Popsugar today:
Favorite actor? I think Ryan Gosling is such a cutie. Lucky Eva…
Loud music or soft? Usually soft, but louder for workouts or to get my juices flowing. Loud vs. soft is very relative.
Where do you go when you’re sad? Outside for a long walk.
How long does it take you to shower? I try to keep it to 10 minutes max!
How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? Usually about a half hour depending on how gussied up I want to be.
Ever been in a physical fight? Yes, shameful…
Turn on? Someone I am comfortable with enough to be 100% myself.
Turn off? Being narrow minded or cheap.
The reason I started blogging? I started a blog a few years ago when I was working as a marketing manager at a large corporation and wanted a way to start something creative. My interest in nutrition and training has grown exponentially since then and I value blogging was a way to not only share information, but to build a community of likeminded people.
Fear? Escalators and being trapped in a drowning car.
Last thing that made you cry? When we brought Pen home last weekend, and he devoured food and water because he had literally been outside starving for days. It broke my heart.
Last time you said you loved someone? I just texted it to my mom. On that note, I also love that she has embraced texting and using Instagram. It really touches me that she learns these new things not out of personal interest, but to stay more connected with us. She was checking up on her Instagram account during a recent dinner out with my sister. It makes me smile.
Meaning behind the name of your blog? Scott and I were brainstorming ideas for a blog and I believe he gets cdit for this one. I wanted a brand that symbolize looking/being your best (the bikini) and also embraced the journey behind truly living and embracing a healthy lifestyle (the experiment). In my opinion, it is a true balancing act.
Last book you read? I just finished “Purple Cow” by Seth Godin via Audible. I have become a huge fan of books while driving in the car or while out on a walk.
The book you’re currently reading? “Girl Boss” is next on the list.
Last show you watched? Orange is the New Black
Last person you talked to? Scott
The relationship between you and the person you last texted? My sister who was checking in on Pen.
Favorite food? Almond Butter
Places you want to visit? Hawaii, Italy, Greece, Niagara Falls and Wine Country in California.
Last place you were? Nashville during our road trip down to Austin.
Do you have a crush? Yes, on these two guys of course…
Last time you kissed someone? I kissed Scott goodbye this afternoon when he left for work.
Last time you were insulted? A few weeks ago.
Favorite flavor of sweet? Coffee or chocolate.
What instruments do you play? I grew up playing the piano and there was a brief dalliance with the flute.
Favorite piece of jewelry? My diamond earrings. I love them, and would be devastated if anything happened to them. In fact I was in a sheer panic recently because I could not find them, and I was convinced we had been robbed. I am a joy to live with…
Last sport you played? Surfing.
Last song you sang? “Boys Chase Girls” by Ingrid Michaelson.
Favorite chat up line? “Come here often?”…it totally works for everything.
Have you ever used it? I like to say it to Scott for fun, but no I have not really ever used it.
Last time you hung out with anyone? I have not really made a lot of new friends yet since I am so new to Austin so Scott and now Pen are my two hang out buddies.
Who should answer these questions next? You, hopefully!
