You know you're low on blogging material when ....

I'm still plugging away.  Nothing too interesting to report.  Well, maybe one thing.  I dropped in on a Weight Watchers meeting and picked up the new material the other day.  3 days in, feeling pretty good, and definitely eating better.  

Saw this list on Lynsey's blog and, partly due to lack of anything interesting to post, felt like doing it myself.  (Thanks Lynsey!)

1. What is your favorite "diet" food?
Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches.  I don't like most bars or "diet" products.

2. What is your favorite movie?
I don't have a single fav, but certainly a group that I watch over and over.  Christmas Vacation is probably my most frequently watched movie over the years.  But then there is Dirty Dancing, pretty much anything with Adam Sandler (Waterboy, Mr Deeds, Big Daddy, 50 First Dates, Just Go With It).  I also really like the movie "A Walk to Remember" with Mandy Moore and have watched that a lot.

3. Where do you WANT to live? 
For the most part I quite like where I live, other than the copious amounts of rain we tend to get.  I haven't seen a whole lot of the world, but I rather enjoy the Oregon Coast.  It's probably much worse for rain than here though.  I've only ever been there in the summer.  

4. Do you have kids, want kids?  
I have two teens (girl almost 16, boy 17).  Do not want any more.  Will wait for grandchildren in another 5 yrs or so.  

5. What was the last book you read? 
Not a clue.  I haven't had much time to read for quite a while.

6. When at a picnic do you eat hotdogs or hamburgers?
A picnic, what is that???  Given the choice of the two I probably choose hot dog more often.  I especially love Turkey Dogs!

7. Do you have a strong faith?
I believe in God, I do NOT believe in church.  

8. Can you touch your toes (without bending your knees)
Most definitely!  I can reach underneath my feet actually.  Though I'm sure that has more to do with my upper body being longer in proportion than my lower body - heeheee.

9. Have your ever swam in the ocean?
I have.  On the west coast it is miserably cold though.  In Cuba it was heaven!!

10. What is your favorite topping on pizza?
We have a strong Indo-Canadian presence where I live and they make a vegetarian pizza with special spice (you can request mild, meduim, or hot - which the latter will nearly burn the skin in your mouth)  that is A-MAZ-ING!  My fav is the medium spice.

1 - What do you want done with your body after you die?
Cremated.  Don't waste money on me.

2 - Would you rather receive a practical gift you need or something silly that means something special?
That's a tough one.  I love meaningful gifts, although my family tends to suck at that kind of thing.  But I really enjoy receiving practical things because then I don't have to go out and buy them.

3 - How many pets do you have and what kinds?
Technically I have one dog, a Dacshund named Tia.  But my in-laws outside dog now resides outside our front door so I kind of call her ours. :D  We also have a cat named George that hangs out.

4 - If money weren't an issue, what would you buy?
At least one vacation home, if not more!

5 - What is one thing you plan on doing before 2012 is over?
Dropping the fat I gained in 2011

6 - How did you spend your last birthday?
Doing S.F.A!  And not so happy about it.  Wasn't much of an exciting day.

7 - What are you hoping your next NSV will be? (Non Scale Victory)
Completing one of my fitness classes without having to modify any moves and doing them all at the highest intensity.

8 - What is your favorite healthy snack?
Diced cucumbers and tomatoes with seasoning.

9 - Do you like crunchy or creamy peanut butter?
Crunchy, but everyone else likes cream and I rarely ever eat it anyway.

10 - Do you wear your shoes inside your house?
No!  I live on acreage.  Any shoes coming in to my house would carry way too much dirt.  Besides, shoes are meant for outside.  You should be comfy inside and comfy = no shoes!

11 - What kind of car do you drive?
Chrysler 300M (would like to have either a Dodge Ram 4X4 shortbox, or a Dodge Dakota 4x4 extended cab)

Love your list! I also like skinny cow ice cream but haven't had it in forever. Glad you are back at it. I miss ya girl!

Well exciting material or not, I liked this post. I always find it interesting to read random things about people. :o)

Fran said...

I love this post, great to know more about you.

About that fitness class doing it without modifications and at the highest intensity. Strange enough that's what I thought about this morning after my workout. My upper body strength is miserable, I use low weights and at the aerobic exercises I use the modifications. Decided this morning I'm going to work harder on this.

I don't wear my shoes in my house either. I don't like to wear them inside. In Winter I wear socks, in Summer barefoot or flipflops.
