{the answers: round 3}

January 19, 2010 in about me,BF,starbucks,Syracuse,workout

Here is the final installment of my questions & answers! Let me just tell you how much I apprecaited all of your questions! I am still amazed that you had so many questions for me. It took a long time for me to reflect on the answers. So thank you so very much. Hope you’ve enjoyed reading the answers as much as I enjoyed writing them!

Molly asked “You workout alot. Do you have/or have you met your goal? Or are you one that works out as a way of life?”

I don’t have a specific goal. I work out as a way of life. I have for years. It makes me feel good. At this point, I wouldn’t mind firming up in a few places, but I haven’t weighed myself in quite a few years, so I don’t have a specific goal to hit. I just want to feel good.

Molly also asked “Do you and BF have marriage plans? If you are to move in together, would it be NY, OH, or somewhere else?”

Well I was living with him in Ohio. So the plan is that he will continue to look for a job in NY to move here. We don’t have marriage plans set in stone (read: no ring) but it is in the plan. We have been talking about it for months now. (yay!)

MonoloChooLou asked “What are your favorite things to do on the weekends when you and your BF are apart?”

My favorite thing to do on those weekends = nothing! I relax and sleep a lot. The other weekends are so busy from travelling back and forth to Ohio, so the weekends where it’s just me, I try to spend as much time at home as possible. Other than that, I just work out. That’s about it.

Gwen asked “If you could buy any handbag (money is no object) what would you buy and why?”

I know this is going to break your heart Gwen, but I’m not sure I would buy one. I just got my first “real” bag (and by ‘real’ I mean my first one that cost over a hundred dollars), and I love it, but it was completely out of character for me. I don’t usually want for much. Maybe a bigger Coach bag. That’s all.

The Analyst asked “Coffee of choice? What kind and from where?”

Well I know this may not be popular with everyone, but I love, love, love, love Starbucks. Love their coffee. For whatever reason it’s really the only coffee I do like. And I can drink an Iced Coffee with skim milk every day. Even through these Syracuse winters!

Cristin asked “What is your favorite book of all time and why?”

A Million Little Pieces, by James Frey. I love the book. and the writer.

Lil Woman asked “what’s your favorite song and why?”

This one is tough! Favorite song of all time would probably be “Walking in Memphis” by marc cohn. But there are many many others that come in as close seconds!

Little Miss Dreamer asked “You a phenomenal motivator for someone trying to keep up with a workout plan. Any advice to us lazy ones who wish they were as dedicated as you? (basically, what keeps you working out, day after day?)”

My motivation comes from knowing that if I drag myself to the gym to work out, I will feel good. If it doesn’t make me feel good, it will definitely make me feel better than I’m already feeling. It seriously makes me feel so so so much better. So to all who need motivated, I highly suggest to get moving in the morning. Makes your day spectacular. True story.

Little Miss Dreamer also asked “You are blog about the fun activities you do: running, Junior League Syracuse, book club, trying new foods. I wonder, what is your absolute favorite thing to do?”

I know I run around a LOT and keep myself pretty busy, but I’m really just a homebody. I would much rather just stay in and watch movies than do anything else. Relaxing and doing yoga are my two favorite activities, by far compared to the others!

Chelle asked “What is the best thing that BF brings out in you and visa-versa?”

Well we definitely bring out the best in each other. He brings out the girly-ness in me. Before dating BF, my girlfriends would say that I was pretty much the anti-girly girl. Now it’s a whole other story! I blame him for my girly moments, even though I secretly love them.

At the same time, I’m pretty sure we both bring out the best of our true selves in each other. And I know he would agree. πŸ™‚

I am so glad to see someone else admit they love A Million Little Pieces and James Frey. I adore him- I loved that book. I loved My Friend Leonard too. Did you read that? It was like the sequel to AMLP. πŸ™‚

Walking in Memphis is one of my favorite songs! I seriously could listen to it all day!

I enjoyed these questions/answers. I think about doing it on my own blog but always worry that no one will ask me anything πŸ™

OMG!!!! I loved A Million Little Pieces. I bought this book for my dad because he had a drug problem and he unfortunately never got to read it before he passed away so I got it back and read it and it really hit home for me. Great book!

You are so right about the working out. It was really hard for me to get motivated last night, but I did and felt much better about myself.

Wow I never would've thought you were non-girly! Not that you're super girly (like some people… ahem ME), but ya know, still girly. πŸ˜€

Love your Q&A! It is so inspiring that you haven't weighed yourself in a while, and you just consistantly take care of your body.

So excited for the day when you are wearing some bling on your finger! πŸ™‚
