1. What is a typical weekday like for you?
I’m off work on Mondays, so I usually do my weekly long run Monday morning, then I’ll run any errands I need to run, do some laundry and some cleaning (wiping down counters/sinks/tub/toilet, swiffering the faux wood floors, dusting), maybe some cooking for the week if I didn’t do it on Sunday. I work Tuesday thru Saturday from 2-10pm, so in the mornings the rest of the week, I do my workouts (gym, cycling on the trak stand, running), then if there’s any errands left over I need to do between my workout and getting ready for work, I do that, then I get ready for work and that’s it for the rest of the day.
2. Name one song that never fails to make you happy and one song that you always listen to when you’re sad.
There are so many songs that make me happy right now so I can’t really pick one. Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke, Applause by Lady Gaga, Lift Me Up by Five Finger Death Punch, Acapella by Karmin, Wake Me Up by Avicii, That’s What I Like by Kelsey Luck, Dance With Me Tonight by Olly Murs, Bom Bom by Sam and the Womp, Damn You To Hell by Texas Hippie Coalition, 365 Days by ZZ Ward…just to name a few.
As far as songs I listen to when I’m sad…I don’t really get sad anymore. I mean, I was grief-stricken when Scott attempted suicide, but not really sad. And I didn’t want to listen to music and wallow in my grief, I just didn’t want to do anything. So, I have nothing for this part of the question.
3. Did you watch the VMA’s last night?
No, I actually didn’t even know it was on…I probably would have watched if I had known, tho. I saw some highlights from it on Good Morning America this morning and it looked like it was very entertaining. And I just watched Mylie Cyrus' performance on youtube and OMG, I'm disgusted.
4. Share at least two qualities that you possess.
I’m a pretty good cook…I always get compliments when I cook for others, except for that one time I completely subbed whole wheat flour for all the flour in a zucchini bread recipe…bad idea.
A second one would be I’m a pretty good friend. I’ll always listen to what you have to say and give you the best advice I can based on my experiences.
5. Share one thing that you wish you had the confidence to do.
Start an Etsy business selling these fairy skirts I’ve made for myself.
6. Tell us about one insecurity that people might be surprised that you have.
It used to be talking in front of people and being assertive, however, now that I’ve lost a bunch of weight I no longer fear these things. In fact, I never wanted to be a training officer at my job, but now I’m thinking about putting in for the position the next time there’s an opening for one. I’ve been thinking about what insecurities I may have for like 10 minutes now and I can’t think of even one. I’m not saying I don’t have any, I’m just saying that nothing stands out to me at this time.
7. If you could be the CEO of any company, which one would you choose to lead?
Probably 24 hour fitness, if we’re talking an already established business…if we’re talking about a business I created myself, I’d want to be CEO of a fitness and nutrition consulting firm
8. List at least three hobbies that make you happy.
*Cleaning (yea, I’m weird)
9. Is there someone in your life that you wish you could say “I love you” to?
Other than my family and some close friends, no…nor do I want that.
10. Share one cool thing that happened over the weekend.
I sold my old bicycle…I sold it for $20 less than I had wanted to sell it for, but it is no longer in my apartment, taking up space and being an eye sore, and that is what matters to me.
