I grew up on a farm, in a small town. I'm a country girl at heart, thrown into the big city of Atlanta thanks to my husband's job in the Army.
I hate traffic, but I'm dealing with it.
I love to spend time outside, enjoying mother nature, in comfortable clothes with no make up on.
Though I do on occasion put make up on and do my hair.
I absolutely love animals (dogs especially), but only have one of my own, and plan to keep it that way.
I spend a lot of time by myself, and I like prefer it that way. I've always been kind of a loner (instert, I'm shy!) My husband tells me my independence is what attracted him to me, knowing that I can take care of myself and keep myself busy. It's also an incredibly handy character trait to have if you want to be happy as a Mil spouse, we're moving so often, relocating and uprooting our lives ... I've always been one to have many acquaintances, but to keep just a few close friends.
My favorite breakfast is oatmeal. I used to hate it as a kid, but now it's always a treat. I opt for gluten-free oats from Trader Joes, and mix in an egg or two and make protein custard oats. Yum!
I'd rather run than row anyday. ;) If you CrossFit, you know what I'm talking about, and you have a preference. The big guys like to row because rowing is built for heavier people. The smaller people will like to run, because running is easier on lighter people. Because I know I'd rather run and because CrossFit is about embracing the suck, I choose to row most of the time.
Eggs are my favorite! I could eat them (and do) for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They're awesome because they can be made savory or sweet.
My socks never match. Like ever.
I wonder if it could be because this guy is always stealing them?
My favorite pair of shoes are my lifting shoes.
Getting under the bar, especially around maximal loads, still scares me.
I love spin class. And I own a road bike. I hope to actually ride it on the road one day.
I'm toying around with the idea of training for a power lifting meet this spring. I am definitely trying top figure out a new strength training program to get stronger in the big lifts. I'm looking at Wendler and Starting Strength.
I choose peanut butter over almond butter.
I believe running is the least effective way to really get in shape. But I still love races. ;)
I can't wait to see these girls over New Years!
1. Almond Butter or Peanut Butter?
2. Do you stay in or go out on New Years?
