RULES: Each Nominee Must:
Here are the questions given to me:
1. Why did you start blogging?
In college I was overweight and miserable within my own skin. I was the type of girl that thought the less I ate, the skinnier I would get… and boy, I was wrong because it did the exact opposite! I ended up not only gaining weight but feeling stuck in a rut that I didn’t know how to get out of. I constantly tried to “not eat enough” to only binge on foods that I knew weren’t exactly healthy later on in the day. I also had very low self-esteem and self-worth because of it too leading me to my heaviest weight my junior year of college at 210 pounds. I decided to take a nutrition class for the heck of it and ended up LOVING it! …Once I was learning about how food actually works with your body (when you eat a balanced diet with proper nutrition) I decided .. heck I’ve tried every other “diet” out there why not just try going back to the basics. I started this blog when a number of friends started asking me for help and advice on how they could lose weight too. With my blog, I’ve gotten creative with clean eating, workouts, and ultimately helping others achieve their goals. I love helping others and seeing their progress throughout their own journeys. I love inspiring people to shoot for dreams and go at it full force. I’m a firm believer in anything is possible if you put in the work, and you can accomplish anything you want in life. Now currently, I’m training for my first fitness competition and planning on going back to school to become a Personal Trainer and Registered Dietitian.
2. What is your favorite type of food?
BLACK OLIVES! yummm haha. I literately get like 6 cans of black olives for Christmas … no joke. … And since I cant really pick 1 food either… shrimp, pretty much any fruit (kiwis, banana, cuties and berries are some favs), pistachios and cashews too! haha.
3. What would you do with a million dollars?
What wouldn’t I do is more of the question! HAHA. Well besides the usual, pay of debt and buy and house kinda stuff… definitely go on vacation! Maybe Hawaii or Paris would be cool…. help the people close to me and just live peacefully and comfortably … I would also go back to school and maybe open up my own gym or start my own practice. =)
4. What kind of music do you listen too?
Oh gosh! I listen to pretty much everything. Rock, Country, Pop, Hip-Hop, Alternative… you name it! … Love me some 90’s too!!!
5. Are you a cat person or a dog person?
Dog person all the way. Don’t get me wrong you cat lovers out there, I’ve had cats too but something about dogs, they can be your best friends sometimes =)
