I have been tagged by Banana Buzzbomb - catchy blog post title today huh? I bet it made you wonder "what the...?" I bet you are also wondering "banana buzzbomb? what is that?" I am not going to spoil the fun for you so if you don't know, go ahead and read about it here .
Anyway, being tagged means I am to share a bit about myself so here goes some random. Thank you Banana Buzzbomb for thinking of me and tagging me!!
I am going to follow BB's rules and give you 21 random bits about me and I will tag 10 other bloggers that I want to learn more about!!
1-I have no rhythm and I a horrible dancer-think Elaine Benis from Seinfeld bad. It's an ongoing joke at work how I can't do an 8 for step classes and such, thus I stick with Boot Camp, Tabata, HIIT, etc. for my class format. I tried Zumba once and had to leave I was laughing so hard. However, I would totally try one of those stripper pole fitness classes!!
2-I was vegetarian (actually pescatarian) for quite a while. Then on a dare, I took a bite of the most glorious, rare filet from The Palm. I was quickly "converted" and I have not looked back. Now my favorite meal is a big, juicy, grilled steak with a giant salad.
3-Speaking of salad, I eat salad almost every day. I am obsessed with Olivia's Organic baby lettuce mix and I go through spells with arugula and MUST have it.
4-I love to play board games like Monopoly, Scrabble, Clue and Life. I can't wait till Lola can play too!
5-I have very strange and vivid dreams; has been since childhood. I even used to have this recurring nightmare for years but it has been a long time since THAT happened.
6-My dream job? To work with dolphins and study tropical reef ecology. I could totally live on a boat in the tropics and get totally geeked out on marine biology and science every day.
7-I never wanted to get married or have children. I pictured myself as single and free for my entire life. Glad I changed my mind on the children part-Lola has brought more joy into my life in her 3 years than I have ever known.
8-I don't have a lot of "normal" clothes. 95% of my closet is sport attire-Since losing all this weight, I never "restocked" my wardrobe. I literally have ONE nice outfit to wear. The rest is spandex or summer dresses for the beach. AND I AM FINE WITH THAT. The last time I put on a pair of heels was for my Grampa Joe's memorial service last summer.
9-I cry easily. Happy or sad tears-doesn't matter. This is a new thing. I wonder if it is because I am finally comfortable with who I am ??
10- I am hoping I win Powerball so I can buy the two houses and giant parcel of land for sale next to my parents. I would build a massive triathlon training center with an indoor full size track, a CrossFit box, full regular gym and a ginormous indoor cycling room with a huge projection screen for Sufferfest workouts.
11-I want to help other people who are overweight and want help to change their life. I have a couple things I am working on in regards to this desire. And if #10 happens, they would have free access to the facility and I would hire my friend, Stephanie to train them. I would also pay Stephanie enough so she would only work to work for me and have the rest of the time with her family.
12-Nine times out of ten I know within seconds of meeting someone, I know if I "jive" with that person or not. I have been wrong a couple times so it just goes to show don't always trust those "first impressions". Yes, this has gone both ways (good/bad)
13-I hated the name Jennifer growing up-I thought it was so boring and common. I think there were close to 15 girls named Jennifer in my class. I wanted to change my name to Morgan (my grandfathers last name and nickname).
14-My first bike was a white bike with a giant yellow banana seat called "Cactus Flower". My Dad saved it and still has it.
THE Cactus Flower
15-I freak out if the toilet paper goes on the roll the "wrong way". Yes...there is a wrong way. It must roll over the top. After 11 years my husband still has not figured this out. I believe he puts it on "wrong" just to annoy me.
16-I sweat like a pig. A big, giant, wet, stinky, pig :)
17-I have not read a book cover to cover since Lola was born (training books excluded). I was a voracious reader all my life and I can now read on the TM. I am reading my first book in a long time: TWILIGHT!
18-I love vampires and would totally be one if I could!! How cool would that be?
19-I have several "girl crushes"-Angelina Jolie, Lolo Jones and Jackie Warner. I would absolutely kiss any of those girls without hesitation but I am purely heterosexual. Make sense?
20-I am obsessed with logging each and every single workout. Since I started 3 years ago I have not missed recording a single one-I used to carry around a 5 subject notebook and wrote down EVERYTHING. Now I use Dailymile and Training Peaks.
21-I don't watch LIVE TV-there is really not much I care to see anyway. I DVR what we want to see and watch when we can. I probably only see about an hour or so of television per week.
