Healthy Living Survey

Tina Reale’s Best Body Bootcamp is coming to an end this week, and she put out a little Healthy Living Survey that I wanted to participate in.

  1. What did you eat for breakfast? I’m getting over an illness, so my eats have not been “standard” this week. Today I had two slices of whole grain toast smeared with Kerrygold butter and two poached eggs. I also had two glasses of orange juice to up my vitamin C intake!
  2. How much water do you drink in a day? I have a big 20 oz. cup that I keep at my desk and I fill it up at least 3 times during the work day. I also usually have at least 1 cup of herbal tea and some water in the morning. I’d say my daily intake is about 60-80 oz. on a week day. I struggle to get water on the weekend, and I need to make more of an effort. On a weekend I bet my intake is closer to 40 oz.
  3. What is your current favorite workout? I’m a little bit burned out on spinning and weight lifting, to be honest. I am LOVING interval runs on the treadmill and yoga.
  4. How many calories do you eat each day? I do not track my calories, and my daily eats are not steady whatsoever. I definitely eat more than 2,000 per day.
  5. What are your favorite healthy snacks? I love fruit and nuts! In fact, I really need to cut back on my nut intake.
  6. What do you usually eat for lunch? A big salad with lots of veggies (cucumbers, peppers, carrots) and chicken breast.
  7. What is your favorite body part to train? Arms!
  8. What is your least favorite body part to train? Legs because I have sensitive knees.
  9. What are your bad food cravings? Anything sugary. Especially chocolate! And ice cream.
  10. Do you take vitamins or supplements? I take a daily vitamin D supplement (4000 IU total).
  11. How often do you eat out? Once or twice a week. Keith and I used to go so much more often but we have been really good about cutting back.
  12. Do you eat fast food? Not normally, but I have been known to stop for a McDonalds Shamrock Shake during the months of February and March!
  13. Who is your biggest supporter? Keith is amazing. He tells me I’m beautiful every day, supports all of my weird diet phases, and is extremely supportive of my gym habit.
  14. Do you have a gym membership? Yes, I belong to a local gym and it costs $19/month. I signed a two year contract and got a great deal! This gym has seven locations, tons of classes, and great equipment. Recently I also buy additional passes for spinning (maybe $30/month) and yoga ($99/month – OUCH!).
  15. How many hours of sleep do you get at night? I go to bed around 10pm every night, and get up anywhere between 5am and 7am (depending on my days schedule), so anywhere between 7-10 hours a night.
  16. Do you have a “cheat” day? I don’t schedule it, but I “cheat” a lot, and lately, way too often!
  17. Do you drink alcohol? Yes, but my consumption has decreased a lot over the past year or two. I used to drink heavily Friday and Saturday night every weekend. Now, I will have a few drinks on Friday OR Saturday (not both) and some weekends I don’t drink at all. I feel much better this way.
  18. Do you have a workout buddy? No, I prefer to work out alone. Sometimes Keith and I will hit the gym together on a Saturday or Sunday, but I consider working out my “me” time.
  19. What is the best thing that has changed about your life since committing to a healthy lifestyle? My confidence has skyrocketed, working out is part of my daily lifestyle and it is a source of stress relief and something I look forward to (rather than feeling like I have to do it). Also, I have learned that I’m stronger than I think I am!
  20. What is the last healthy thing you did? Like I mentioned above, I have been sick so my days have been very ice cream laden. But I signed up to go to a yoga event tonight and I’m really looking forward to it!
