  1. Complete the following sentence – “When I look in the mirror I see…

    uncensored answer: A fat tub of lard that I have trouble looking at and dealing with.

    answer because I’m really trying to work on my negative self-talk: A smart woman struggling to make the person she sees be the person she always feels like inside.

  2. What exercise do you take? What’s your current level of fitness?
    I bike on weekends spring, summer and fall. I used to DDR until I messed up my knee, but almost ready to try again. Got into shredding with the sisterhood, so try to keep up with that 3 times a week (though that will be set aside for this challenge – I can’t do both in the same day!).
  3. How do you relax?
    Scrapbooking, watching bad TV, going to movies, playing video games.
  4. Do you watch your weight?
    Trying…
  5. What’s your favorite body part?
    I have trouble liking anything about my body…but if I had to choose something, I’d have to say eyes.
  6. What’s your least favorite body part?
    My gut.
  7. What’s your favorite way to workout?
    DDR was my favorite, with biking a close second.
  8. Its time to work out, we’re most likely to find you decked out in?
    Sweat- or workout-shorts and a workout top from Junonia
  9. You’re due to workout, but it’s pouring rain. What do you do?
    No prob, except biking, I usually workout in my basement.
  10. What’s the one item you wouldn’t be without when working out?
    Water
  11. What do you hope to get from the 30 Day Challenge?
    Weight loss, more muscle.
  12. What are you apprehensive about going in?
    Daily workouts are a challenge for me – I start to feel oppressed by the prospect of *having* to workout every day, so then I resist and quit.
  13. How will you reward yourself after the challenge?
    Success is it’s own reward for this one. I’ll just let me feel proud of myself (I don’t do that frequently enough).
  14. Complete the following sentence – “I’m Active for …”
    myself and making myself more healthy.
