Questions And Answers
You guys took my question request very seriously!! Love it!
I got lots of questions and well, here are the answers!
I had a bit too much fun answering these…
A. My dream job is to open a little breakfast cafe! Serve oatmeal, muffins, pancakes, eggs, omelets and smoothies; have a oatmeal topping bar; serve specialty oatmeal and make homemade nut butters in-house. That would be amazing and fun, it’s what I do all day anyway! Haha, the sad thing is, it will probably never happen. 😦
Q. If you could have one super power, what would it be? –Sophia
A. I’m going to keep it real here, I wish I could turn invisible. Oh yeahh.
Q. What country do you wish you could visit? –Gill
A. I have always had a special place in my heart for England. I am actually (distantly) related to Princess Diana and some of my ancestors were the ones that came on the Mayflower to America from England.
I’ve never been out of the U.S, so really I’d love to visit any country! I love traveling.
Q. Have you ever been/wanted to go to public school? What do you think you’ll want to study in college? –Alexandra
A. I went to public school from 1st-8th grade. A few months into 8th grade, I became homeschooled, along with my two brothers. Florida offers free online high school courses, so I signed up for some of those and have been doing them ever since!
I really like being homeschooled. I have a ton of freedom, I can go at my own pace and I can take as long as I need to learn math, which is my worst subject!
In college, I really want to study Nutrition. But I’m thinking that career-wise, I’m going to be a Physician Assistant, so I’ll probably end up taking Nutrition classes for fun!
Q. How is your mom loving the working out and eating plan? –Katie
A. Good question! I think she likes it so far, mostly I thinks she just likes how I’m cooking all her meals for her! 😉
Q. Do you like horses? –Alexandra
A. Yes! I love all animals. But I bet you’re wondering if I have ever done any riding. Not really. Although, my friend had horses and I got to ride them a few times, it was fun!
Q. What’s your favorite workout? –Sami
A. I like doing workout videos! Haha, I’ve been doing TurboJam and once I master all those workouts I want to get TurboFire! But to be more specific, I love doing squats. Oh, and I did Jillian Michael’s Yoga Meltdown today, it was so fun, I loved it!
Q. All-time favorite movie? –Rach
A. There are too many! I really love all Disney movies, the most recent one being Tangled! I also just watched Titanic and It’s A Wonderful Life and LOVED both of them – I love the classics!
Q. What is your earliest memory? –Christin
A. Interesting question. Hmm…when I was little (like 3) my mom was a teacher aid at a special education school. A lot of the kids had Down syndrome and other disabilities. I remember my mom took me with her to her class one day and let all the kids hold me and play with me. I remember one girl in particular, she was in a wheelchair, she loved playing with me!
A. Haha, good question! 😉 Is this the one you’re referring to?
We’ve had it for a while, I don’t know where we got it! We usually only use it at Thanksgiving but I thought it would be perfect for the pumpkin oatmeal.
Q. What are your 5 desert island essentials? You pick 5 things that you can have when you are stranded on a desert island. What are they? –Emma
A. I don’t like this question because I can’t think of anything all that exciting! But here ya go! 🙂
1) My laptop, 2) some books/cookbooks to entertain myself, 3) my dog, 4) our Vitamix, and 5) a journal
Q. How are you liking Sugar Free Week so far? I’m thinking of doing a month! –Alyssa
A. I’m really liking it! It’s a LOT easier to eliminate sugar than you would think! My face is really clearing up and no more food baby! (I’ve never used the term “food baby” but I’m guessing it’s that bulge in your stomach that you get after eating too much, am I right?) You should definitely try doing a month, but I’ll stick to a week 😉
Q. What is your favorite nut? Fruit? Veggie? –Kathleen
A. I love all nuts, but my favorites to eat by themselves are roasted almonds, peanuts and cashews. I am the person who always picks the cashews out of the trail mix!
Favorite fruit is bananas or grapefruit! Favorite veggie is sweet potato (is that a veggie?) or broccoli.
Q. What do you do to make yourself happy when you are sad? –Kat
A. I was (still am…) a person who gets depressed easily. Over the last few months I can’t even count how many times I’ve cried myself to sleep and felt bad about myself.
But the last few days I’ve been feeling a TON better. I think about the things I can control to make myself happier. And the things I CAN’T control, well I just try to forget about them. We have one life here, and I don’t want to waste it being sad about something I can’t control, so I think about all the happy things and all my blessings to help me feel better.
Q. Where do you hope to see yourself in 5 years? –Alaina
Q. When did you become so interested in healthy eating and who was your inspiration? –Heather
A. I took a Personal Fitness class online and learned a lot about calories and nutrition information.
I forget how, but I found Courtney and Whitney’s blog, Eat N Groove, and wanted to be just like them! I started writing down everything they ate and started making it myself. Haha, weird I know, but that’s what I did! Then I found more food blogs and kept learning about being healthy.
Q. What is your favorite thing to do on a day off? –Cait
A. Bake, read fantasy novels, photography.
Well, I had fun answering all your questions! Phew.
What can I say? I love experimenting with different food lifestyles and I’ve always wondered if I could survive without greek yogurt, so this will be my perfect opportunity to do so with lots of other bloggers!
