Healthy Living Survey

What did you eat for breakfast?

Quaker Oats Weight Control-Cinnamon flavor made with unsweetened almond milk and a scoop of Cinnamon raisin swirl PB!
Also chopped up half a banana to put in the oatmeal and half to eat by itself.

How much water do you drink a day?
Not as much as I should.  I’m awful.  I never actually FEEL thirsty but I know that’s no excuse!

What is your favorite current workout?
BodyPump! I love the strength training but it’s so fast paced it feels like a bit of cardio too.

How many calories do you eat a day?
No idea now.  I used to obsessively use myfitnesspal to count my calories but now I have achieved my weight goal and stopped.  Honestly, it was unhealthy to be so obsessive over numbers.  I try now to eat when I’m hungry and what my body wants.

What are your favorite healthy snacks?
Apple slices with PB, hummus and veggies, popcorn!

What do you eat for lunch?
A lot of times it depends on what the dining hall is offering.  Most of the time it is either a huge salad, chicken breast with veggies and fruit on the side or a wrap/sandwich along with veggies and fruit

What is your favorite body part to strength train?
Triceps! I’ve actually noticed a difference and love the burn.

What is your least favorite body part to strength train?
Back.  The moves can be awkward, the machines seem to hurt.. yeah..

What are your “bad” food cravings?
No such thing as a bad food craving.  But unhealthy?  Anything sweet.  Biggest sweet tooth EVER!  I also tend to crave greasy pizza after drinking certain beverages.. 😉

Do you take vitamins or supplements?
I take a centrum everyday along with fiber supplements.  If I’m eating a dairy product I also take Lactaid.

How often do you eat out?
During school? Rarely. I’m too busy!  On average though maybe once or twice a week.  Nothing extreme.

Do you eat fast food?
Depends on what you mean by fast food.  I don’t ever eat at McDonald’s, Wendy’s etc. because their food literally makes me ill now.  However I do love Subway, Chipotle and Panera!

Who is your biggest supporter?
Family and friends!

Do you have a gym membership?
No. It’s free at my school and we have a brand new fitness center and indoor track! Win.

How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
7-9.  Usually more like 8-9 but schoolwork can get in the way of that…

Do you have a “cheat” day?
No.I eat what I want, within moderation.  That I believe is the key to success.

Do you have a workout buddy?
Not everyday! About half of my workouts I do on my own.  The other half, especially long runs, my suitemate Anna tags along and I love it! She keeps me motivated to workout on days I don’t want to.

What is the best thing that has changed about your life since committing to a healthy lifestyle?
I’ve lost weight, toned up, feel better, less digestive woes!

What was the last healthy thing you did?
P90x Shoulders and arms workout!
