a-z…get to know le

don’t you just hate icebreakers!? here we goooooooooooo:

a is for age: 30th b-day is in t – 5 days!

b is for breakfast today: the usual- i start craving my oatmeal and egg whites as soon as i wake up, seriously.

c is for currently craving: all things SUGAR!!!! which proves that sugar addiction is real.  i’m conducting a little experiment. i have dropped (not quite 100% but a GREAT deal) of all processed foods from my diet and i’m only getting sugar from natural sources (100% real fruit). 1 week down and i have tightened up all over my body; lost inches all over and especially in my waist, and i’m definitely more defined. my muscles are popping out and waving hello!

d is for dinner tonight: stuffed turkey bell peppers w/ brown rice.

e is for fav type of exercise: cardio and weights COMBINED. i teach a class called Total Conditioning- it’s a Lifetime Fitness signature format.  can you say calorie burning fest?!?! the first time i ever took the class i was extremely intimidated; didn’t think i’d ever get the hang of teaching it.  now i can’t get enough of it.

f is for irrational fear: big boats and open spaces. e.g. cruise ships and places like the grand canyon. yeah i don’t get it either.

i'll go someday...but i'm fine just looking at pics for now.

g is for gross food: most of the time i find that it’s a texture thing with people.  in this case it’s texture and smell for me- chitterlings. no thanks. ever.

even the 'prettiest' picture looked horrid... more power to yall.

h is for height: 5’10. my driver’s license proves it.

i is for ice cream: marble slab sweet cream mixed in with chocolate chips.  any other time, it’s self-serve fro-yo w/ random toppings.

j is for favorite jam: booooy when this particular song comes on in my gym class i get my second & third wind outta nowhere.  i could be a tired, sweaty mess and almost to the end of class but this song gives me a surge of energy to finish strong.  it’s ‘Nah Mean’ by Mannie Fresh- the edited version played at 140 bmp (super fast) though! pretty sure my members are sick of it by now:)

k is for kids: my unbelievably, awesome, blessing and precious gift from God. my 10 month old. for now.

l is for current location: @ work. blogging. shhhhhhhhhhhh

m is for the most recent way you spent money: i’m TRYING to spend money and find my bday dress!! been to look for it twice now with no luck.  still need shoes too. and a bag.  i’ll find something though. i always do!

n is for something you need: God and His word.  every single day. my husband.  i need some form of contact with this man on a daily basis (after we go our separate ways in the morning of course). whether it be by text, skype, facebook, email, it doesn’t matter.  with all this technology, a plain ol phone call was the last thing i thought of, smh.

o is for occupation: IT manager, group fitness instructor, fitness model, entrepreneur.

p is for pet peeve: at the moment, drivers who don’t turn right on red. ESPECIALLY downtown. who doesn’t know this!?

q is for quote: quoting from songs is cheesy but this one is so powerful to me.  helps me push during my workouts:

‘i’m a beast, i’m an animal, i’m that  monster in the mirror, the  headliner, finisher, i’m the closer, winner. best  when under pressure with seconds left i show up.

– usher  (give me more)

r is for random fact: i eat cool whip like it’s ice cream. i add sugar-free chocolate syrup and make a ‘mousse’.  i’ve thrown some chocolate PB2 up in there before as well.  i can’t be the only one doing this…

s is for fav healthy snack(s): 2% greek yogurt & toasted pistachios drizzled with honey.  fresh veggies & hummus. peanut butter & celery/apple. freeze dried fruit (especially bananas), banana protein smoothie, cottage cheese w/ fruit…

t is for favorite indulgent treat: key lime pie & grain-sweetened chocolate covered raisins from whole foods. chocolate chip paradise from chilis.  my brother is the only person i know that can eat one of these a day and not gain a pound.

u is for something that makes you unique: i prefer grocery shopping over the shopping mall, any day.  but you knew that already, right!

v is for fav vegetable: sweet potatoes. they are SO versatile. sweet, savory, fried, baked…

w is for today’s workout: 1 hour of total conditioning

x is for the # x rays you’ve had: besides being born and giving birth, i pretty much stay outta the hospital.

y is for yesterdays highlight: spending aaaaaaaall day with my little man. we attended a 1st birthday party at Gymboree Play&Music (twice in one weekend) and because my LO can’t walk yet, i had to help him ‘play’ for the most part. got my workout for sure.

z is for time zone: CST

welp, that’s a snippet of le. take 3 letters (or more, it’s all good) and tell me something about you!

    P.S. I was scared to admit that I was the only one eating cool whip like its ice cream!
