Since Tina has been on a Friday Survey kick for the past several weeks, I figured I’d do the same, only because it’s raining out and surveys are mandatory on Mondays and rain days. I went old school with one of her older surveys, called, This or That.
1. Run/workout in the heat and humidity or freezing temps and snow?
Run in the heat! I hate hate hate the cold and complain all winter, so I’d rather suffer and sweat 10x crazier than I already do. I love running tank-top tan lines, so that’s an added bonus to my favorite summer runs.
2. Have washboard abs or flat abs?
Flat abs with a little definition. I love following all the crazy, fit females on Instagram, but seeing that they have washboard abs is just something that I have no desire for them, even though those girls look absolutely beautiful!
3. Dr. Oz or The Doctors?
Dr. Oz!! He is such a freakin’ babe that I will follow any word that comes out of his mouth.
4. Cardio or strength?
I run every morning, but also enjoy a workout on my lunch hour, and 9 times out of 10, I prefer strength. Plugging away on a cardio machine is so boring when I can be lifting weights!
5. Cravings: Protein or carbs?
Protein… and fat. I always crave peanut butter or cashews. It’s so bad that when I’m home, my Mom bans me so that my Dad or brother can enjoy some too. Oopps.
6. Jillian Michaels or Bob Harper?
Toss up. Jillian Michaels for her 30 Day Shred Video, but Bob Harper because he is cute enough to stick in my back pocket, and a “sweeter” trainer.
7. Frozen Yogurt or Ice Cream?
Is this even a question? Lindsay and I try to get fro-yo every day. Well, lie. We would if we had the metabolism of Justin Bieber, but since we don’t, weekly or bi-weekly trips are necessary.
8. To train: Upper body or Lower body?
Lower body. My shoulders and back are my favorite body part, so I love showering them with a lot of attention. I secretly loved when my trainer gave me brutal shoulder workouts.
9. Protein powder or food with protein?
I love a good grilled chicken breast smothered in bbq sauce, but I am also addicted to protein bowls loaded with jimmies.
10. Lunges or squats?
I could squat all day, every day. I have an attention-grabbing booty (sorry Mom, it’s true though), and it’s actually what I’m known for, so I try to do squats in every single workout, whether it be only 30 or 100+. Squats are your friend!
11. Sweet or salty?
Sweet. My brother works for Hershey so this is how his house always looks.
I could eat M&M’s for breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, and dessert and not ever get annoyed. This is the only thing my brother hates, yes, hates about me. I switch to his competition for this candy treat.
12. Workout attire: cute or comfy?
Both! I have to workout in tanks, but I really don’t like skin-tight tanks, mainly because I might have had 500 M&M’s the previous night.
13. Body Pump or heavy lifting?
Body Pump! Jen Coworker and I try to go at least once a week, and we actually just went Wednesday night. I enjoyed lifting with my trainer, but now that I don’t use her services anymore, I rely on Body Pump to keep my ADD in check and to actually lift.
14. Yoga or Pilates?
Neither. I have ADD and can’t concentrate longer than 3 minutes in Yoga. Although I do like the poses where I can just lay there or be in pigeon pose for the entire class. If I had to choose though, I’d go Bikram all the way.
15. Nike or Adidas?
NIKE. I refuse to run in any brand besides Nike. I hoard Nike running shoes. I will walk down the aisle in Nike running shoes.
16. Running on the treadmill or outdoors?
Treadmill from late Fall until early Spring, and then it’s all road baby. I hate the snow and cold, so I refuse to run in either. Same with rain. My shoes are too pretty to get all wet and muddy.
17. Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s?
Trader Joe’s, even though the closest one is half an hour away. I got addicted to TJ’s when I lived in Los Angeles. They have brussels sprouts on a stick, so how can they not be my favorite?!
18. Summer or Winter Olympics?
Summer. Men’s beach volleyball. Enough said.
19. Exercises classes or exercise videos?
Classes. I have no one to tell me I’m a wuss if I stop a video halfway through.
20. Steamed veggies or roasted veggies?
Roasted, unless we’re talking carrots, then it’s steamed all the way.
- Running on a trail, road, or treadmill?
- Sweet or salty?
- Hershey’s or Mars? Your answer will determine if you’re on my brother’s good or wicked bad side.
