D is for dinner tonight: Bonefish Grill with family. 

E is for favorite type of exercise: Running fo’ sho. Zumba has definitely been fun lately but running is a true passion.

Silly Little Survey

Hey remember those surveys everyone used to post on MySpace? Well….I stumbled across one on Teri’s blog, A Foodie Stays Fit and after the day I’ve had, this is the extent of creativity (or lack thereof) that’s left. Also, I like to read random stuff by random people, so have a gander:

A is for age: 23 22, I keep forgetting my birthday is not for another couple of weeks, and already feel more 23ish

B is for breakfast today: 2 cups o’ coffee, packet of instant oatmeal (my work breakfasts are ever so sad and depressing, I need to do something about this)

C is for currently craving: anything sweet.

D is for dinner tonight: Kids burger from a BBQ place Ryan wanted ribs from.

E is for favorite type of exercise: run run run

F is for an irrational fear: stepping on grates in the sidewalk and falling in (hence why I avoid them, makes for interesting running during races, let me tell ya) Also: eels. Their little faces are so scary to me.

G is for gross food: Mayonnaise
