Curing #NOtivation - Fitness Survey

Mal had this great idea to participate in this fabulous fitness survey from Peanut Butter Fingers. Talk about curing NOtiviation! I should be ashamed of myself with these answers! I am definitely not the poster child for a healthy lifestyle these days, but that's what this is all about right? Helping each other, even in the valleys. Hallie, Mal, and I would love for you to answer the questions, post them this week, and link up with us to help cure NOtivation (a lack of motivation). It doesn't matter if you're just starting out or already a fitness freak, these questions help you reflect on your current lifestyle and inspire others to make healthy choices!

1. What did you eat for breakfast? Peanut Butter & Choc Chip Granola Bar
2. How much water do you drink a day? I try for at least 72 oz, but I've been getting MUCH less recently.
3. What is your current favorite workout? HIIT (Like Insanity workouts) or Zumba, I've been lazy so I don't want to think about organizing my workout I want someone to tell me what to do.
4. How many calories do you eat a day? 1200 is my goal, but again I haven't kept track much these days
5. What are your favorite healthy snacks? Fruit!
6. What do you usually eat for lunch? I used to pack my lunch everyday, but again with the laziness I've gotten away from that. I try to still keep it healthier with a salad or sandwich, but I'm not always successful.
7. What is your favorite body part to strength train? Shoulders & Butt
8. What is your least favorite body part to strength train? Biceps
9. What are your “bad” food cravings? DIET DRINKS, Sweets & Alcohol - Which I give into these cravings ALL THE TIME!
10. Do you take vitamins or supplements? I take Vitamin D & Biotin everyday, I only take supplements when I'm consistently working out
11. How often do you eat out? Lately it's been more than normal, but I much prefer to stay home and cook. Cooking for 1 is very difficult though, requires lots of meal planning.
12. Do you eat fast food? Yes :(
13. Who is your biggest supporter? Probably you girls!
14. Do you have a gym membership? Yes, I actually have two
15. How many hours of sleep do you get a night? I try to shoot for 7, but my sleep schedule is all out of whack right now. 3 hours one night then 9 the next.
16. Do you have a “cheat” day? I prefer cheat meals over full days
17. Do you drink alcohol? yes, too much!!
18. Do you have a workout buddy? I have a couple, but no consistent ones
19. What is the best thing that has changed about your life since committing to a healthy lifestyle? When I am fully committed to a healthy lifestyle, I love the way I feel about my body and the confidence boost I get.
20. What was the last healthy thing you did?

Come link up your surveys with us until next Monday July 15th!

72 ounces of water!! GIRL I am envious and PROUD...I think I drink MAYBE 30...(I know, I know, awful hahah) I always just forget which is TERRIBLE!!!

cheat meals over cheat days...speak to my heart! SO true.

I want to come be your workout buddy! I have no one to go with haha but feel like it would help motivate me so much!


Pamela said...

Love this!! I have been stuck lately! My weight isn't going down & I feel like my body isn't changing. I guess if I worked harder at it like I did I would see more of a difference!

Jackie said...

I've been trying to get back into working out and let me tell you, I have no patience for more than HIIT-like workouts...because I would rather do 30 minutes of intense working out than 2 hours of lameness haha I was thinking of trying Insanity...except I don't know if I'd be consistent enough

Kelly said...

I also hate planning my workouts and that is a major demotivating factor for me! I've been doing the Jamie Eason LiveFit Trainer series for the past three weeks and I LOVE it! It has every single workout planned out for you, it's great.

Erin @ Sugar Magnolia said...

Love this! I'm trying to eat much healthier this week- so far so good!

Jordan said...

I love the confidence I get when I'm committed to a healthy lifestyle! Nothing like it. I really need to chill with the cheating! Especially after this fourth of July holiday - oops!

Shannon @ Bungalow960 said...

Girl. Give me some of your motivation. I am sucking it up big time right now. As I sit here with my coffee and muffin with cream cheese frosting.

Amanda aka Manda said...

I wish I could be there to be your constant work out buddy! I need to get back on track!

Helene in Between said...

Kathryn said...

Sounds like you're doing good! I can stick with good meal planning for a few weeks but then I get tired of all the extra time and effort it takes.

Kerry @ Till Then Smile Often said...

I am with you girl! After this long weekend i have no motivation to go to the gym but I am going to try and go running tonight!

I've been failing with MFP lately, but I'm back on board today. Holiday weekends really mess me up.
