Thoughts on Being a Lobster

Liebster Award

Wait, no…a LIEBSTER!!!

Umm yeah, that’s what I meant! 😉

So I know Thursday’s have been of a more serious nature lately what with me sharing my thoughts on my Intuitive Eating journey, but you know what? I don’t really feel talking about cravings or food guilt or hunger cues. I don’t really feel like trying to decipher the thoughts and feelings hidden behind the jar of pickles, bowl of leftover squash, and crackerfuls of nut butter that I just felt COMPELLED to shove in my face last night.

Nope, today I’m going to pretend that all my days are exactly like last Saturday. No thinking, just living. No guilt, just eating.

So instead I’m going to leave the thinking to someone else, while I answer some questions created by two very lovely ladies back in AUGUST when I was
FIRST nominated for the Liebster Award!

From Sam @ Better with Sprinkles:

1. Treadmill or outdoor running?
Outdoors! And ha, I only WISH I could run right now!

2. Would you rather watch a movie or a (commercial-less) tv show?
I LOVE watching movies with other people, but I don’t know what it is, when I’m alone, my ADD kicks in and I just can’t stay focussed! Give me a show that’s 30 minutes or less and I’m good, otherwise I will have found eleventy million other things to occupy my mind!

3. PJs, yoga pants or housecoat for lounge around the house sort of days?

Bed HeadDefinitely my big fluffy robe…unless I’m booty flaunting in front of the man-friend, then I have to go with the yoga pants, obviously! 😉

4. Regular or egg white omelet? Or no omelets at all?
I could really go either way…as long as there’s CHEESE!!!

5. Favourite chip flavour?
Smartfood Select’s Feta Herb Hummus Popped Chips…one word: ahhhmazing!

6. What’s the best way for you to relax?
Give me a park, a woody trail, or an abandoned railroad…as long as I’m outside, soaking up the sun, and listening to the stillness around me, I’m happy. There is just something about being submerged in nature that truly relaxes me. And bonus points if I have my camera!


A collage, Roz would certainly approve of! 😀

7. Favourite chocolate bar in existence?
Hmmm, I don’t think they’ve come out with it just yet. It’s called a PeanutbutterpretzelBACONcookiedoughdieandgotoheaven Bar 😉

8. Shorts, full length pants or capris to work out in?
Thanks to my long and gangly legs, shorts AND pants tend to be too short on me. Thank God for capris!

9. Red or white wine?
I’m a white girl through and through…I’ve even got dance moves to prove it! 😉

10.Favourite colour to paint your toenails?
Depends on the season, but lately I’ve been rocking the pink for spring!

11. Sweet or savoury breakfast?
Sweet…and maybe a bit strange? 😉

Cranberry Goat Cheese Breakfast WrapRecipe coming tomorrow!

From Kristin @ My Mission Impossible:

1. What is your dream job?
Cookbook author/Food Photographer? Hey, a girl can dream, right?

2. Favorite form of cardio and how often do you do it?
I REALLY like circuit training…strength training AND cardio in one!

3. How long have you been blogging?
2 years, 4 months, and 4 weeks…TODAY!

4. What is your favorite fitness class and why?
I don’t go to classes often because I kinda like to just wing it and do my own thing, but I like jumping into a Body Pump or yoga class from time to time.

5. How do you relax?
See #6 above.

6. What do you listen to while working out, if anything.
I usually set my phone to either my workout playlist or my latest favorite station on Pandora….as long as I have something upbeat that makes me wanna shake my white girl booty! Lol

7. What website do you spend the most time on?
Damn, you caught me…

Lobster Me

8. Do you work out at home or in a gym?
Mostly at the gym, but I’m loving that the weather is FINALLY starting to warm up so that I can take my physical therapy outdoors!

9. What is #1 on your bucket list?
Travel (and EAT) my way through Europe…bring on the carbs!
Crepes…hot toasty Italian loaves…pitas…mmmm!

10. Favorite food and least favorite food?
Favorite: BREAKFAST…don’t make me choose just ONE!

Breakfast Least favorite: Raw Squid

11. Do you have any morning rituals?
Every morning afternoon when I wake up, I check my phone for texts and Twitter/Instagram updates and then end up scrolling through my IG feed for a few minutes before starting breakfast.

What’s the best way for YOU to relax?
