Award Winning + Thankful Thursday


Yahhhh! I won a blogger award :) Award winning talent, I tell you. haha. I just write about what I love and the fun workouts and eats I enjoy-it is fun for me, and I’m so glad you all stop by!

And thanks to the lovely KATIE for sharing the award with me! Thanks girlfriend :)

7 Things about ME:

1. I love to workout FIRST thing in the morning. I get all nice and schhhweaaaty, then hit the shower and breakfast. It works for me people. I love that wake-up burst of energy. Like a lot.

2. I married my husband on April 30, 2010, only after meeting him on September 20, 2009! That is only like 7 months! But when it is truly right, sometimes you just KNOW. And fast. :) Best decision I ever made was to marry my sweetheart!

3. I gave up all desserts and sugar for an entire year. It actually wasn’t very hard (the first 2 weeks were KILLER). You get used to it. However, now I enjoy desserts in moderation. If I want to cut back, I eat less sugary foods. Simple as that!

4. I am very, very, very terrible at MarioKart. I lose every time. Not even joking here.

5. I got into a bike accident while training for a triathlon. A kid was coming down the mountain I was riding up (on my bike), and crashed into me head first. He was going too fast, swerved to avoid some other people and crashed right into me. I had a huge black eye and was quite sore :(

6. I am obsessed with Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Michelle Kwan. What can I say, I have a wide variety of interests 😉

7. I am a swimmer, dancer, & runner, but I don’t love cycling. Maybe it is the uncomfortable seats? Or maybe it is b/c me and my sister would hit up the 545 am class at the gym….and I dreaded it every time we went? Whatever it is, I need to get over it! My husband is an amazing mountain biker and I want to compete in many more triathlons….so this is a pRoBlEm people!!

Some awesome BLOGS to check out—and I give this award to…..

Thanks again Katie!!
