I was all ready for the weekend and then just got stressed out! Not only is it snowing, but I guess I’ve accumulated a little more than I thought over the past two years of being in one spot…so packing it all up is taking a bit longer and more difficult than possible. So in order to take a break and help myself destress a little I thought I’d do Janetha’s A-Z survey that everyone is doing…I know, I know, I just did a survey like this not too long ago…but hey, it’s fun to learn about each other, right?!
A is for age: 26, but sometimes I feel like I’m 30, and people are starting to say I look it…sad times?
B is for breakfast today: A simple bowl of oatmeal made with water, cinnamon an apple and some unsalted PB. Just what I needed with that snow falling outside.
C is for currently craving: Just food. Starting Insanity has driven my appetite through the roof! I know I’m not eating enough because I keep getting night sweats at night. No fun!
D is for dinner tonight: Still unknown…I just finished eating a bunch of dried apples and granola so who knows if a real dinner will even happen at this point!
E is for favorite type of exercise: You guys all know how much I love running, but these bootcamps I’ve started to do, plus Insanity, are starting to grown on me! Definitely makes me feel like I’m running and sweating just as much!
F is for an irrational fear: Of drowning from a bridge falling out from under me while I’m driving. This started a few years ago when I was traveling across all the bridges going over Louisiana and Alabama…ahhh.
G is for gross food: I don’t really think anything is gross, well, other than liver, but do think that certain foods FEEL gross to touch, including: avocado, banana, raw butternut squash and soggy bread. haha!
H is for hometown: Anaheim, Ca. Welcome to Disneyland! If you go, give me a call; I don’t live far away!
I is for something important: Dinners with the family. And time with the boy. Nothing more important than that!
J is for current favorite jam: I actually don’t like jam. The only thing I use similar to that is TJ’s Cranberry Apple Spread…I can eat that on anything!
K is for kids: None for now…or for a while. Just me and my fur-baby!
L is for current location: Uh…I’m currently in transit, and will be for about 6 months. But I’m starting out new Palm Springs, CA and working my way towards the beach!
M is for the most recent way you spent money: Just two weeks ago I forked out a pretty sweet amount of money to get my Insanity Challenge pack, which not only included the Insanity DVDs but also 30 packs of Shakeology which I must say, are pretty tasty! Otherwise, money has only been spent on packing materials…
N is for something you need: I need a new stomach to agree with me, a drug to help keep me from stressing out and my kitty to be able to travel and stay with me at all the hotels I have to live in for the next six months! And I need lots of clean eating food pre made for me to help me get through this Insanity Challenge…because I’m not doing too well. haha!
O is for occupation: I’m an Avian Field Biologist. How many people do you know with that title? LOL. And I love it!
P is for pet peeve: People that talk with their mouths open, or speak the lines of movies while they’re watching the movie. Drives me crazy!
Q is for a quote: I don’t really have a favorite quote, but there are certainly a few that I really like!
“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” ~Native American Proverb
“We could have saved the Earth but we were too damned cheap.” ~Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
R is for random fact about you: My pinkies crack every time I bend them. No matter what, and I don’t know why.
S is for favorite healthy snack: PB and oranges. There is just something about the salty/sweet/tart combo that I love!
T is for favorite treat: Chocolate covered strawberries. I love it when they have crushed graham crackers sprinkled on it too.
U is for something that makes you unique: I’m young and I’m a birder for one, then do it for work. There simply just aren’t that many people that do that.
V is for favorite vegetable: Roasted butternut squash hands down. I love it with lots of spices though, not sweet with honey or butter. Bleck!
W is for today’s workout: I was supposed to do an Insanity workout but I’m so tired I resorted to a short walk with Whit and…a nap.
X is for X-rays you’ve had: Um…both of my hands, my ankle, my middle toe on my left foot…I’m sure the list could go on. I’ve had lots of broken bones.
Y is for yesterday’s highlight: I finished my second to last day of work with my current company and had just a great night hanging out with my boy. He also got to finally show me his new car that he bought earlier in the week!
Z is for your time zone: Pacific, thank goodness! I don’t know what I would do without being on this coast! I love it!!! We have the best sunsets!!!! (and sunrises of course)
