7 Things About Me - I Got "The Very Inspiring Blogger" Award!

I love awards! And I'm not talking the ridiculous "certificate of participation" awards - are those ridic or what?...I'm talking the "I won, I won, I'm the winner!" type of awards!! :)

So last week when I saw that my fellow #SweatPink-er Esther nominated ME for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award I was giddy!  I am so happy that my little section of the blogosphere was noticed - thanks again Esther!!! We are kindred spirits since you're so into fitness, just like me...and chocolate is my world, too! 

The Rules:

  • Thank & link to the person who nominated you.
  • List the rules & display the award!
  • Share 7 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 other blogs that you enjoy, then let them know that you have nominated them!!


1. The only other countries I have visited outside of the US are Canada (a 1 day trip) and the Dominican Republic (my best friend's wedding).  As close as I could be while still being outside the borders lol.  I would love to day!

2. There was a time where I monitored how much water I was drinking each day!  While I was in "super Type-A, weight watcher" mode I not only counted my points, I made sure that I was drinking AT LEAST 64 oz (8 - 8oz cups) of water each day!  I was refilling my water bottle therefore in the bathroom every 5 minutes!  I'm surprised I didn't float away! 

3. I hate cleaning out my closet.  I'm not a hoarder and I like organization, but the thought of cleaning out my drawers or closet makes me grumble.  I may have stuff in there from college....10 years ago....just sayin'!
OMG....if only!
4. I am doing my first half marathon in November.  I committed, I blogged about it, so now it's real!  I'm anxious and nervous and excited because I've never done anything like this before. (I've run a Spartan Race, a Down & Dirty mud run, a 5-mile race and numerous 5ks....but never 13.1 miles!!!!!)

5. I LIVE for the pink "seafood" sauce at hibachi restaurants.  There's a specific restaurant by us that has the best sauce ever - but I can't convince the chef to give me the recipe! lol  I could literally drink it!  I totally judge a Japanese restaurant by how good their pink sauce at the hibachi table is - that's normal, right?

6. I climbed a (small in size but big in meaning!) rope this week!  It was really my first time trying it and I did it 3 or 4 times!  And I can't believe it!!

7. I played tennis when I was younger.  It was really the only sport that I ever formally played and I was on the varsity team for most of high school.  For years I took a private lesson every Saturday morning - and even though I really enjoyed it I always sort of hoped it would be raining so I could just stay in bed ;)

Because I find you so inspiring and awesome, I NOMINATE:
(1) Becky! (Olives'n Wine)
(2) Melissa! (The Eyes of a Boy)
(3) Michelle! (Modern Boca Mom)
(4) Tiff! (Love, Sweat, Beers)
(5) Kelsey! (The Primal Yogi)

Head over to my girls and show them some love!! :)
