Because cats are the best.

HaPpY mOnDaY!!

Only one week until September break. I can make it.

I. Can. Make it.

So guuueeess what? I was nominated by the totally amazingly awesome Miranda for the Sunshine Award!

1. Include award logo in a post on your blog.
2. Link to the person who nominated you.
3. Answer 10 questions about yourself.
4. Nominate 10 bloggers for the award.

Kids, it made my day to be nominated! Thank you so much, Miranda! And I do love surveys. I mean, what girl doesn't like to talk about herself (ya'll know what I mean ;)).

Without further ado, here is my questionnaire:

1. Who is your healthy living inspiration?

Why are the first questions always hard?! A lot of my healthy living inspiration came first and foremost from my nutritionist from when I was inpatient. She taught me so much about myself, the relationship between food, mind, and body, and was closer to my heart than anyone on my team. The past few years it's been pretty much the entire healthy living blog community, but it really started when I found Kath's blog.

2. If you could succeed at one thing, what would it be?

Hmm...singing and dancing. I've always wanted a beautiful singing voice, and ballerinas and dancers really captivate me - it's such a beautiful art. I was always too tomboy-ish/clumsy to get into that though.

3. Would you rather always be believed or always be right?

Always be right. But wouldn't we all? ;)

4. Do you like wearing matching clothes to workout, or do you just throw on whatever?

It really depends. At practice, I do like for my shirt and shorts to at least work together, but I do have a couple of tanks and shorts that need to match. On the weekends/long runs I really don't pay attention to what I have on except that it's comfy.

5. What's your go-to fitness routine? 

Running and weights all the way, baby (have you read my sidebar? ;)). I specifically like sprint intervals and long runs, and I love doing quick 10-minute arms/abs routines.

6. Would you rather get everything free from Reebok or Lululemon?

I've never really gotten anything from either, but after I did some online browsing, I'd say Reebok. It's more my style, and a little comfier looking. Guess I'll have to try to find out!

I really like this one! Source

7. What's your dream job?

I've mentioned it a few times before, but it's still a toss up between Registered Nurse and Registered Dietitian. I've been leaning more towards nursing, but lately I've gotten back into wanting to be in the field of nutrition! If I were an RN, I'd work in a hospital or general practitioner office, and if I were an RD, I would definitely work out of a private practice (a community RD).

8. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Spain. I love the Spanish language, culture, food, architecture - everything.

Barcelona, Spain. source

9. What's the biggest healthy living tip you could give to someone?

Try new things and trust yourself. Whether it's joining a new sport, trying a new food, or even changing your hair color, it's always okay to take leaps of faith! That's where the trusting yourself comes in. :)

10. What's a random fact about you?

I'm really afraid of dogs. Big dogs, small dogs, nice dogs, fluffy dogs - they just scare me. I refused to go on a long run the other day before I looked up "canine body language" (I can't believe I just publicly announced that) because I have no way of distinguishing whether a dog is happy to see me or about to charge. #catladyprobs

Explains my title!

Whew. That was fun! Part of the rules is nominating 10 other bloggers for the award, and giving them 10 questions to answer! I nominaaattteee....*drumroll*

Sunnie (see what I did there?), EmilyShannonAmandaEllieAmyBrittanyLauraRobyn, and Alison!! Yay guys!

I want ya'll to answer the questions that Miranda gave me because 1.) They're really good! and 2.) I'm really bad at coming up with questions. Have fun ladies, and thanks again Miranda!
