Liebster Award #2


Last week Shashi @ Runnin Srilankan nominated me for a Liebster Award!  Although, I’ve been nominated for this award before, I always like a good survey and answering the questions is always SO fun!  Thanks Shashi for the nomination!  Be sure and check out her blog…it’s SO awesome and you can find some wonderful recipes!

LiebsterAwardIf you don’t already know, the Liebster Award is a fun survey to get to know and acknowledge some of the blogs with few followers. Once you’ve been nominated, you pass this lovely award on to other blogs. Here’s how it works:

After receiving the nomination, the blogger must:

1. Acknowledge the nominating blogger;
2. Share 11 random facts about yourself;
3. Answer 11 questions the nominating blogger has created for you;
4. List 11 bloggers who have less than 200 followers (as best as you can tell based on the info provided!). They should be bloggers that you believe deserve some recognition and a little blogging love!
5. Post 11 questions for the bloggers that you nominated to answer; and
6. Let all of the bloggers know that they’ve been nominated.  You cannot nominate the blogger that nominated you.

11 Questions from Shashi

1. What is an interesting book you have read so far? Wild: From Lost to Found by Cheryl Strayed.  It’s a non-fiction book about the author’s personal journey and experiences hiking the Pacific Coast Trail.


2. If you woke up with a sore throat and runny/stuffy nose – would you run/workout in an attempt to “sweat the bug out” ?  Yes, but I’d do a lower intensity workout, so I don’t wear myself down too much. 

3. Why do you blog? I have a passion for all things health and fitness related, and I want to share my knowledge/experiences with everyone.  Also, I have a stressful and sometimes, emotionally draining job, so blogging has become a great outlet for me.  

4. What is an interesting movie you have seen so far? Pacific Rim!  It was awesome!

Pacific Rim Locandina

5. Ping pong or badminton?  I’m bad at both of these games, but I guess I’d have to say ping pong. 

6. Would you rather run a mile with a blister or a cramp? That’s a tough one…I guess I would have to say a cramp because at least they’ll go away fairly quickly.  With a blister, you’re stuck with it until it heals.  

7. You have one meal a year to eat whatever you want without gaining an ounce – what would this meal consist of (you only have 30 minutes)?  Love this question!  Hmmmm…lets see…homemade lasagna, pizza, ribs, M&Ms, chocolate chip cookies and a big bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream. ;-)

8. What is a blog you read everyday?  I’d rather not pinpoint just one blog because I read SO many everyday, but you can click HERE to take a look at my Blogroll (this is just a small list of the MANY blogs I read a day). 

9. If you won the lottery what is the first thing you would buy? A car — specifically some sort of small SUV type vehicle.  

10. Cats or Dogs? Cats for sure!

11. When you are stuck in traffic and all the other lanes are moving -but yours; would you change lanes or wait it out? Oh how I hate traffic!  I would definitely change lanes!
