Sooo….I’ve been nominated for like 3 awards and haven’t filled out any of them. Bad, bad blogger! But, I’m finally making up for missing them. Here’s the most recent one that Alysha at She’s On The Run nominated me for .

The Liebster Blog award is meant to be given to a blog that is a favorite of yours, and one that is up-and-coming…typically with about 200 followers or less. Rules include 11 random facts, Answer questions tagged in, Create 11 new questions, and 11 nominations.

Since there are millions of blogs out there, it’s nice to highlight one that not as many people know about (and to show your readers an authentic and good blog you enjoy reading).

Here are your guidelines:
1. Link back to the person who gave it to you…they deserve the love!
2. Post the award on your blog for all to see!
3. Give the award to 11 of your favorite bloggers … ideally with approximately 200 followers or less.
4. Leave a comment on your chosen {11} blogs to let them know that they have been given the Liebster award.

Here are her questions to me:

  1. What does your exercise routine look like? I’m all about variety. I love Body Pump, Body Combat, RPM as well as Pilates (haven’t taken a class in forever!), Yoga and Zumba. Body Pump is definitely my all time favorite for now though.
  2. What’s your biggest fitness goal? Hmm. I would really like to like running. Haha…that probably sounds lame but it’s such an “easy” workout to take with you anywhere you go. I did my first 5K a couple of months ago but haven’t stuck with running. Maybe sometime in the future I’d like to do a half marathon but I’m no where close to doing that now.
        3. What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given? Everything will be okay. It seems simple, but I tend to get worked up about a lot of the small things in life that don’t really matter. Everyone goes through hard times but in the end everything will be okay.
       4. What’s your dream job? Owning a doggie day camp. Play with puppies all day as my job? Yes please!
       5. Describe your perfect meal. Hmm…this is a tough one! I guess it depends on if I’m making it or if it’s at a restaurant. I’m always a big fan of salmon and of course my beloved kale chips!
       6. What is your favorite quality/trait about yourself? My eyes. They turn realllly blue when I’m outside and it’s sunny.
       7. If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be? The thickness of my hair. Without fail, every hair stylist I go to says “Omg your hair is so thick! It’s the thickest I’ve ever seen!” At least I know I’ll probably never go bald!
      8. Are there any words you just hate? Belly. Like, seriously. I say tummy button instead of belly button. It just grosses me out.
     9. Is there a piece of clothing/accessory you can’t live without? Flip flops. I know they are terrible for your feet but they are just so easy to slip on.
     10. What’s your biggest pet peeve? Inconsiderate people.
   11. When was the last time your cried? Ha, um…last weekend? It was something wedding related, of course :)
Random 11 Facts About Me:
1. I hate hot dogs. I’ve tried them every way possible (grilled, boiled, fried) and they still taste disgusting to me.
2. I’m a savory person over a sweets person. 9 times out of 10 I will pick a savory dish over a sweet dish. Maybe that’s why I’ve never had any cavities!
3. I’m an only child. I hope you haven’t been able to tell that :) .
4. I’ve lived (at least for a certain period of time) in New York, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, Wisconsin (obviously) and Colorado.
5. In high school, I was in the color guard. Ya know, the people that spin the flags with the marching band? Yeah. All four years of high school I did fall & winter guard so it pretty much took up my life. Then I went to college and drinking took up my life.
6. I lived in a sorority type house during college. I say “sorority type” because it technically wasn’t a sorority but very similar. At Purdue (Boiler Up!), they have housing called Cooperative Housing, which operate very similarly to Greek housing, we just aren’t nationally affiliated. We also did all of our cooking and cleaning, which made living there a lot cheaper. Actually, the cheapest way to live on campus ($350 a month!). I loved living there but at times I wonder how I managed to survive living with 40 other people.
7. At some point in our lives, Ryan and I want to move to Colorado. We definitely won’t start having kids until we get there (which is a long, long time from now).
8. Our wedding will be our 15th wedding we have been to together. I had been to one wedding prior to dating Ryan.
9. When I first started college, I wanted to be an Interior Designer. Ha. That lasted a semester. What was I thinking?! I have absolutely zero creative ability when it comes to art.
10. I broke my leg when I was less than a year old. I was trying to bounce one of those small, squishy basketballs and I fell and broke it. This leads me to believe that this incident is the reason why I suck at sports.
11. When I go check out books at the library, I cannot leave with just one book. I have to get at least 3. Every time, I know I can’t read all of them before I have to return them so I’m not sure why I do this. I like variety, I guess?
 Here are my questions:
1. What is your favorite type of food ever? (Calories don’t count!)
2. What is your favorite form of exercise?
3. Dogs or cats?
4. If you could give any piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be?
5. What’s your favorite season?
6. What’s your go-to healthy meal?
7. What is a recent favorite blog you have found?
8. What do you do for a living?
9. Why do you like blogging?
10. Grocery shopping: Yay or Nay?
11. Tell me something random about today!
And here’s who I tag!
3. Carol @ Lucky Zucca
4.  Nicole @ More Beets, Please!
7. Claire @ Fitting It All In
8. Stefanie @ The New Healthy
….I ran out of bloggers! :) Also I realize some of these blogs (maybe all!) have more than 200 readers but I just wanted to share the love
