Liebster Award!

Kristin over at My Mission Impossible nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award! This basically means that I have to list 11 random facts about myself, and then answer 11 questions that Kristin provided. THEN, I make 11 of my own questions and nominate some more bloggers to do the same!  This is perfect for today since I just got home from my sister’s long-weekend bachelorette par-tay and I am pooped. Uploading photos is not at the top of my list of things to do. I have 4 days of Olympics to catch up on here!

11 Random Facts

  1. I have three sisters– the two younger ones are twins!
  2. I used to be a competitive Irish dancer. You know…that Riverdance business. hah.
  3. I am EXTREMELY non-athletic, running is easy because I can do it alone and coordination is minimal. Sometimes I even mess that up and fall down anyway…
  4. I can never have all my clothes clean at once because they won’t fit in my closet/two dressers…
  5. I am half Moroccan.
  6. I am half Jewish (if that’s a thing…), so we kinda get both holidays!
  7. I don’t know how to drive. (So embarrassing, hah)
  8. I hate tomatoes.
  9. I know how to sew/make clothes.
  10. I hate flip-flops.
  11. People wiping chalk off a board with their hands makes me cringe with heebie-jeebies.

Now on to Kristin’s questions!

1.  What is your dream job?

I don’t know yet, but my goal in life is to live without counting down until Friday. I want to love Mondays like Saturdays!

2.  Favorite form of cardio and how often do you do it?

Running! At least 4x per week right now.

3.  How long have you been blogging?

This is only my 6th month!

4.  What is your favorite fitness class and why?

I don’t really do fitness classes anymore, but I have been meaning to pop into a TRX class to try!

5.  How do you relax?

By hanging out with Josh and Lemon! At the park, on the couch, on a walk– any which way!

6.  What do you listen to while working out, if anything.

I use Fit Radio– it’s an iPhone app that streams music at an RPM specifically for working out!

7.  What website do you spend the most time on?

Dare I say… Facebook.

8.  Do you work out at home or in a gym?

Usually at the gym or outside, occasionally at home too.

9.  What is #1 on your bucket list?

It would be nice to get super fast and run the Boston Marathon…but I probably need some new genes and legs that exceed 27″ in length…

10. Favorite food and least favourite food? 

I’m sorry but healthy or not, pizza has to be the most delicious thing on this planet. I hate hot dogs, tomatoes and seafood.

11. Do you have any morning rituals?

I check all my social media in bed before I get up– Facebook, Instagram, and e-mail. It’s a way to get me from super sleepy to ready to go


Now! My questions are:

  1. Are you a cat person or a dog person?
  2. What sport do you wish you excelled in?
  3. What is your current favourite recipe?
  4. What is your favourite holiday?
  5. What brand of running/training shoes do you wear?
  6. What is your favourite bedtime snack?
  7. What was your first concert?
  8. What was the name of your first pet?
  9. What is your favourite healthy food to make for others?
  10. What is your biggest pet peeve?
  11. What celebrity have other people said you look like?
