A few days ago, I came across a fun post from my good pal Lindsey over at the blog Cardio Pizza.
Her post went through a bunch of light-hearted questions related to her personal fitness preferences and goals. I immediately thought “I want to play!”.
Since Friday means fun and light-hearted around here, why not break it out today? I can’t wait to hear some of your answers in the comments! Or read them on your own blog.
FUN FITNESS SURVEY
Five Fitness Things I Can’t Live Without:
- running shoes
- Bosu or stability ball – love the extra challenge from them!
- someone to watch the kids – yes it’s a fitness thing because it often makes the difference between a workout or not
- Cathe or Turbo Jam/Kick/Fire DVDs – I need the extra variety
- dumbbells – most versatile piece of strength equipment
Favorite Pre-Workout Snack or Meal:
I usually have to grab something as I’m rushing to get the kids ready in the morning. This means I need something quick, easy to eat one-handed, and that digests quickly so I don’t feel sick while working out. My favorite options are:
- a larabar
- a banana
- a few handfuls of cereal/granola (Love Grown!!!)
Then, I always eat a big ole breakfast post workout. Oats for the win!
On My Fitness Bucket List:
Hmmm…you know. I don’t really have anything on a bucket list. I guess my biggest thing is to continue having fun with fitness and working on challenging myself in fun, new ways. That changes all the time, so I can’t definitively say what I would put on my fitness bucket list.
Must-Have Tech Tools:
- Garmin – mainly so I don’t have to pre-plan my running path!!
- iPhone – for music
Top Exercise Gear:
I love working out in a good sports bra, a tee (preferably wicking material), and either running shorts or capris. I’m still fully in love with all my Champion gear.
“The finish is worth it” is probably the biggest mantra I use. However, nothing gets me going like my crazy Hammer flash-mob mental game.
Next Big Exercise Goal:
Crossing the finish line of my first half-marathon. Rest assured – I will cry.
Favorite Cardio Exercise:
I never thought this day would come, but running has truly become my favorite form of cardio. I love that I can either push myself for a workout that makes me feel amazed at what my body can handle or simply keep it low and have it recharge me mentally and physically. It’s so versatile and I love that! Cycle classes will always be up there too as a close second.
Favorite Strength Move:
I would have to say the push-up. They never get easier!!! And they work.
