11 things

Amber over at Gym Class Dropout tagged me in her post of 11 Things. I've known Amber since I started working at LLS on the Team in Training campaign. She is one of the many reasons I decided to get in to shape again so I guess I have her to thank for many things, not just participation in this fun game!

Here goes...

The Rules:
  1. Post these rules
  2. You must post 11 random things about yourself
  3. Answer the questions set for you in their post
  4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer
  5. Go to their blog and tell them you've tagged them
  6. No stuff in the tagging section about "you are tagged if you are reading this." You legitimately have to tag 11 people!
Eleven Random Things about me:

  1. I would have a sleeve of tattoos covering my left arm if I wasn't a professional. 
  2. I have severe road rage. Like, I imagine other cars getting in wrecks if they don't use their turn signals.
  3. I am obsessed with the AMC Family original series' Jane By Design and Pretty Little Liars.
  4. I hate when people call me Elaine. (P.S.-That is NOT my "real" name.)
  5. My parents thought I was a boy the whole time they were pregnant with me. My name was to be John. 
  6. I love the smell of gasoline.
  7. I've had to wear glasses/contacts since the 2nd grade.
  8. I loved high school and wish I could back.
  9. My biggest fear is not being able to have children.
  10. I was late to a meeting once because I was pinning. (No telling please!!)
  11. I wish I had a British accent.
Amber's Questions for Me:
  1. If you could have dinner with any one person (dead or alive), who would it be?Easy: Bethenny Frankel.
  2. What/who is your favorite band/musician? This is a hard one as I love many bands. Right now, my favorites include Adele and Florence + The Machine (girl power!)
  3. What is your favorite thing about being a "grown up?" The freedom of going anywhere at any time.
  4. What is your least favorite thing about being a "grown up?" ...everything. Just kidding. I hate the responsibility! I just wish someone would do something for me so I don't have to do it.
  5. Describe your best friend(s). My bestie, Katie, is the funniest, sweetest, most real person I know. She is very supportive and patient of me. She makes a great partner in crime :) I can't imagine not having her in my life.

  1. Early bird or night owl? Early bird for sure.
  2. Do you have a secret talent or just a talent that is unique? Ugh, I wish! Sadly, I have zero talents, except for being able to run long distances. Does that count?
  3. What is your favorite holiday? 4th of July. USA! USA!

  4. Have any tattoos? Yes: on my left wrist (symbol for strength), on my left rib cage, on my right hip (butterfly, first tattoo, got it with my bff Katie when we turned 18), and on my left foot (Latin, "in memory of mother.") I'm hoping to get another one soon...stay tuned.... :)
  5. Why did you start blogging? I started blogging to track my progress from flab to fab (cheesin') and to hold myself accountable so I don't gain the weight back. I also wanted to help other people who want to be healthier and show them that if I can do it, certainly you can too!
  6. What is your favorite meal? My favorite dream meal is Tommy's Pizza with pepperoni and banana peppers, cooked in the old oven, with a side of ranch and a side of Matt The Miller's pretzel bites. Beer to wash it all down.
My Questions:
  1. Do you prefer blondes or brunettes in your partner(s)?
  2. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
  3. How do you feel about the band Nickelback?
  4. What is your favorite "rainy day" activity?
  5. What is your dream job?
  6. What is your favorite season?
  7. What is your least favorite sound?
  8. Sweet or salty snacks?
  9. If you could go anywhere on vacation, where would you go?
  10. On a scale from 1 (not at all) to 10 (best of all time), how much do you like the band Nickelback?
  11. What is your favorite sport to play? To watch?

(sorry I don't know anyone else personally with a blog...if you have one and would like to be tagged, holla at me!)

  1. Yeay for making our journey from flab to fab! And being able to run long distances is absolutely a talent! Just think of how much you can accomplish before most people get out of bed. :)
