Answers to 11 Questions Lisa asked:

  1. What’s your favorite meal?
    I love salad w/ a million different types of veggies, cheddar cheese and grilled chicken. Gourmet pizza rocks my world too.
  2. Dogs or cats?
    Had a cat growing up and loved her. Now, I like dogs and cats as long as they are not mine. I have a hard enough time keeping my house clean right now without pets.
  3. If given one million dollars, how would you spend it?
    I would finish getting our gym up and running. I would save a good chunk of it. I would do a little work on my house. I would give some to my parents. And I would find a local charity that we could work with on a continual basis.
  4. Do you prefer biking or walking as a mode of transportation?
    Walking if it’s in a city. Biking if it’s in the woods. :)
  5. What’s the fitness goal you’ve accomplished that makes you most proud?
    Becoming a personal trainer (and HKC) after years of wanting to be one.

    Does a knife count? Or a blender? I use both of those daily!

    I just tried them for the first time and thought they were pretty good!
  9. Would you wake a sleeping baby?
  10. Can you recite the alphabet backwards?
    Not unless I had a LONG time to think about it, which I don’t.
  11. What’s your first memory?

  1. what kind of video monitor do you have? Would you recommend it?

  2. I have to set my alarm to an odd number too! Not necessarily 3 or 7 but it can’t be a 0 or a 5. I have no idea when or why I started this. Love the picture of you napping with your son! Those are definitely the best naps :-)

  3. Thanks for tagging me! And I’m with you on the pizza and salad, mmmm. Actually just on the pizza part but I usually get a sald just to make myself feel better about all of the slices I’m about to dominated haha.

  4. I want to do a pull-up. You look awesome. I have to work on this post before I have to answer 10 sets of questions. :)

  5. I’m exactly the same way with alarm clocks! :) Thanks for the tag!

  6. Damn! I just posted my “11 things” today! I wish I had seen this tag first – I love your randoms! Particularly the one about the red wine in a really big wine glass, SO SO TRUE!!

    I also eat some kind of nut butter daily, sometimes even twice a day. Yummmmm.

    • HA…I know I saw and thought it was pretty funny. :) Even if it’s just a little bit of wine, it tastes so much better in a giant glass!! I’m with you on the nut butter. One time is a given, but it’s usually more like 2 or 3.
