I hope everyone’s having a wonderful weekend! I’ve spent most of my day studying away for midterms next week, so I figured I’d complete this survey I found on meals and moves instead of boring you with information on randomized clinical trials…
A is for age: 23 but I’ll be 24 in April.
B is for breakfast today: Ian and I may start a new traditon, waffle stack Saturday’s
I had mine with peanut yogurt and bananas in the middle and then sunflower seed butter and warm blueberries on top.
Ian’s had marshmallow fluff and banana in the middle and then was topped with cookie butter and syrup.
C is for currently craving: Anything with nut butter + banana + chocolate! I’m hooked on this flavor combination right now.
D is for dinner tonight: I wasn’t in the mood to cook so I threw together an easy rice bowl.
I sauteed kale and onions and then stirred in some TJ’s kimchee rice. I topped it with a sunny-side up egg for protein and siracha [unpictured] for spice.
E is for favorite type of exercise: Running, no doubt about that.
F is for an irrational fear: I don’t like flying! Even though I’ve flown a lot of places (including to Asia twice), every time I get on a plane I panic a little.
G is for gross food: Fish balls. I still don’t know what these are but I remember trying one in Bangkok and almost puking in the middle of the mall. Yuck!
H is for hometown: West Bloomfield, Michigan
I is for something important: My flash drive, I swear I’d have a heart attack if I lost it!
J is for current favorite jam: I’m honestly not that into music and listen to old music over and over again (weird, right?) but I do like Foster the People’s “Pumped up Kicks”. I guess that’s newish…
K is for kids: One furbaby
L is for current location: Chicago
M is for the most recent way you spent money: I bought a way overpriced fancy flavored water at 7-11. It wasn’t worth it, I’m not sure what I was thinking.
N is for something you need: More time to get things done or maybe some sleep…
O is for occupation: Primarily student but I also work at a health policy research institute.
P is for pet peeve: Any type of slurping, sucking, or any other weird noises people make when the eat. Please just eat your food and be done with it not everyone in the room needs to hear you do it!
Q is for a quote: I have two and both are running-related (go figure):
“We may train or peak for a certain race, but running is a lifetime sport.” -Alberto Salazar
“The difference between the mile and the marathon is the difference between burning your fingers with a match and being slowly roasted over hot coals.” -Hal Higdon
R is for random fact about you: When I was really little I told my mom that I wanted to be a gas station attendant when I grew up because I thought pumping gas was soooo cool.
S is for favorite healthy snack: Veggies and hummus or fruit, pretty simple
T is for favorite treat: Ice cream, fro yo, or custard. What can I say, I <3 ice cream.
U is for something that makes you unique: My feet have actually shrunk as I’ve gotten older (and I have huuuge feet for my 5’3 frame), when I was in high school I would wear a 9.5/10 but now it’s more like an 8.5/9… I’m not making this up guys.
V is for favorite vegetable: Toughy, I love brussels sprouts and cauliflower. I also really like carrots but a certain person *cough* Ian *cough* doesn’t so I rarely but them.
W is for today’s workout: Since I can’t run, I ellipticaled at the gym for 30 minutes and then swam 1,200 yards. I had planned to do more but my arms were sore and there was a random couple making out and groping each other in the pool/ hot tub (switching back and forth). I was just too grossed out to hang around… I mean it’s a gym pool not a love nest.
X is for X-rays you’ve had: Too many to count… seriously. I’m also going in for x-rays in
three two weeks for my heel. Fun stuff.
Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Sushi and Scooter’s most definitely. I’m not the biggest fan of Friday’s because I’m usually so tired and the day just draaaags on.
Z is for your time zone: I’m in central, woohoo!
Now it’s your turn, fill out some of these, and tell me a little bit about yourself
