Recently Courtney shared a fun post with a “This or That” type of fitness survey. I don’t know about you, but after having a sick kid since last Friday, I could go for some fun today and this fits perfectly. So, I’ll share my answers and then hopefully you’ll share your answers in the comments below!
1. Run/workout in the heat and humidity or freezing temps and snow?
FREEZING TEMPS! I find it much easier to layer up for running than to cool down. Then again, I live in the South so snow is never really an issue. That could very well change my opinion between the two.
2. Have washboard abs or flat abs?
Flat abs because it’s much more realistic…and healthy is better in my opinion anyways I have previously made my thoughts on washboard ab goals well known.
3. Dr. Oz or The Doctors?
Definitely The Doctors! They always have such interesting topics with useful, reputable information.
4. Cardio or strength?
This is like having to choose between my first and second child. Strength training and I go way back and it is my first fitness love…but running is cardio and it gives me a workout endorphin rush like no other. I guess I will have to go with the running. Or I always like a good mix of both, you know.
5. Cravings: Protein or carbs?
I enjoy both…but carbs. Hands down. Give me my oatmeal!
6. Jillian Michaels or Bob Harper?
I’ve only done Jillian’s workouts and I really enjoy them, so I will say her. I also always preferred her tough love style over Bob’s on The Biggest Loser.
7. Frozen Yogurt or Ice Cream?
Frozen Yogurt if we’re talking a self serve option. I like getting to choose a mix of flavors and toppings. Oh, buddy, do I! No shame that I go for the chocolate over the fruit toppings.
8. To train: Upper body or Lower body?
Full Body. I really prefer full body workouts. Between upper and lower though, I guess I would have to say I like lower body moves more. That shocks me since I have always thought I hated leg day at the gym!
9. Protein powder or food with protein?
FOOD! While I do use protein powder (about 1/2 scoop in my smoothies), I would much rather eat a natural option for my protein consumption. Eggs, beans, yogurt = my favorites! Want to know more about protein? Check out my Why Protein Matters post!
10. Lunges or squats?
Lunges because there are so many variations – front, side, curtsy, reverse, walking, backward walking! Oh, the list could go on and on!
11. Sweet or salty?
Do you know me at all? SWEET! I was blessed with my mama’s sweet tooth. And have apparently passed the gene on to my kiddos in full force.
12. Workout attire: cute or comfy?
Comfy. My workout attire is typically a pair of running shorts or plain capris plus a wicking tee. No lululemon here, friends. I like to think I at least look a little cute, though.
13. Body Pump or Heavy lifting?
Heavy lifting. I actually can’t stand Body Pump. Mainly because you can do so much more in the gym when not limited to mostly the same series of exercises class after class after class.
14. Yoga or Pilates?
Yoga because it involves many areas that perfectly complement running.
15. Nike or Adidas?
I have quite a bit of Nike stuff, so I have to go with Nike. And I’m anxiously awaiting my new Nike LunarGlides that I got to custom design!
16. Running on the treadmill or outdoors?
I would rather risk running in a storm than on that dang hamster wheel.
17. Whole Foods or Trader Joes?
Otherwise, Trader Joes, since I’m too cheap for Whole Foods and it’s too far away.
18. Summer or Winter Olympics?
I hate to admit that I rarely pay much attention to Winter Olympic games, but can’t get away from the Summer games. I just love the gymnastics, swimming, running, volleyball, diving…
19. Wine or beer?
I used to be way more of a wine girl, then I started running longer distances. I don’t quite know why…but when I run I crave beer something fierce. Now, I’m a big beer fan – especially a good craft beer on draft!
20. Steamed or roasted veggies?
Depends on the season, actually. I’m all about steamed during summer and roasted during the fall/winter.
