A Little Fun

by tinareale on November 8, 2012

Thank you all so much for the earlier encouragement of my special celebration! It means a lot. I more so hope anyone out there still struggling can have the same sort of successful change.

Well, after such a serious morning post, I thought I would lighten things up a bit. I’ve seen this Last Chance Survey going around blogs and knew I would want to play along. I do love a good survey…and having the chance to share a more personal side of blogging too. Thanks to Janetha who I originally found the survey from.

Last Chance Survey

Last food you ate…

At the time this publishes, the last food I will have eaten will likely be one of these:

Gosh, I just love Kind bars. So stinking good.

Last beverage you drank…

Water. I pretty much only drink water besides my cup (or two) of coffee. Well, and that one beer on the weekend.

Last workout…

An upper body workout using those ladder sets again (love them!) and a spin class. Or should I say RPM class? I tried out a new gym today since I’m considering a switch and have to say that I loved the RPM!

Last thing you pinned…


A recipe for a vegetarian Tamale Shepherd’s Pie that Heather shared on her blog and I had to check out. The recipe sounds soooooo good.

Last text message you sent…

…was actually a message to Courtney. A week ago. I so do not text.

Last blog you visited…


Monica’s blog was the last one that came up in my reader. Hiiii, Monica! I’m your creepy stalker.

Last tweet you sent…

While some may say I aim to make muscles cry, I more aim to show the fun, exciting, empowering side of fitness. Always good to hear people get that with Best Body Bootcamp.

Last place you visited…

The library with the kiddos. I  lead an exciting life, no? Although it does bring me great joy, so it’s all good.

Last time you did ab work…

Today actually! I can be really bad about doing ab work, besides trying to do planks a few times per week. I had time to kill before spin class today, though, and filled it with some abdominal work.

Last show you watched…

Modern Family! Not this week’s episode, though. I had to catch up on previous weeks with a little Modern Family marathon. It makes me laugh so hard.

Last thing you baked…

3 ingredient pumpkin cookies! They were super quick and easy to toss together for a friend who just had a baby. Just a box of spice cake mix, a can of pumpkin, and some white chocolate chips all mixed together and baked at 350 for about 10-15 minutes.

Last thing you instagrammed…

Just trying to keep things positive. Winking smile


Last item on your to-do list today…

Folding laundry. Katie posted this picture about folding laundry and I couldn’t agree more.

Doing laundry in 2012

Seriously? When will that come out? Probably about the time my kids are old enough for me to make them do the laundry as their chore. Wouldn’t that just be the case?

Your Turn! Last place you went? Last item on your to do list? Last food you ate? Or if you have already done this super fun survey, feel free to link it up!

Hey Tina, I love this…. we have so many similarities. I <3 those Coconut Kind Bars and I pretty much only drink coffee/espresso and water. I did this survey today on my blog, and actually gave a shout out to what I know is one of your favorite sayings…ABS ARE MADE IN THE KITCHEN ;-) Have a great night!

Girl, I’m stoked you tried and loved RPM. Do you know I teach it and I’m sorta obsessed. :) Next time you come to visit me (because it will happen one of these days) you’ll have to come to my class. Such a great great workout! :)

3 Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance November 8, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Haha SOO true! You’d think the dryer would iron, steam, press AND fold by now. I’m staying hopeful ;)

4 janetha November 8, 2012 at 5:13 pm

Love your answers! I am such a sucker for surveys, reading and filling out. Maybe because I am nosy, haha. I forgot about those easy peasy pumpkin cookies! Love them!

Hello!!!! I kinda feel like I should do this last chance survey now :)

6 Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries November 8, 2012 at 6:09 pm

Ohhh my, I love that ecard! Folding laundry is my LEAST favorite chore of all time…

7 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats November 8, 2012 at 7:12 pm

hahahaha omg you really don’t text!!! Haha I’ve probably sent 50 texts today!

8 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table November 8, 2012 at 7:29 pm

Reading this makes me want to send you a text message.

I need a fold button too. That would be worth paying extra for!

I totally think there needs to be a folding button! and a putting away button…

11 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More November 8, 2012 at 9:51 pm

HA! YES – I think someone needs to make a dryer that folds your laundry. And I’m pretty sure the fact that I have two baskets that have been waiting to get folded for a few days, is proof that it’s in demand. ;)

12 Heather @ Better With Veggies November 8, 2012 at 10:33 pm

You’re gonna love that Tamale Shephard’s Pie – just finished the last serving for lunch today and it was yummy!

13 Khushboo November 9, 2012 at 1:11 am

Haha loved your answers, Tina! That e-card is so spot on….doing laundry is fine, but it’s the folding/ironing bit which drives me loco! Last food I ate would be breakfast: a yogurt bowl with raw oats, applesauce, peanut butter, and almonds. I love that combo but it tasted even better after a run :) !

Love this survey! Just saw it on Lee’s too and realized it was on yours first hehe. I used to be so bad at doing ab work but the best way for me now to get it in is teaching! And now I am addicted! love it – is that weird? ;-) I just made a similar recipe with TJ’s pumpkin bread mix and pumpkin, so so good!

LOVE this survey–I want to do it soon.

And I’ve made those cookies before (only with choc chips). YUMM!

YAY for RPM. It’s a tooouuggghh class.

16 Joanna @ Running Places November 9, 2012 at 9:52 pm

Fun survey :)

And I think we all creepily stalk Monica @ Run Eat Repeat. I know I do! haha
