Starting at about 6:15 this evening, my weekend (including Friday) will be consumed by FitBloggin’, a conference “for bloggers interested in fitness, wellness, good food and a healthy lifestyle. Two days of education, networking, friendship and fun.” I am SO. STINKIN. EXCITED! Nathan and my parents got me my ticket for my birthday and I couldn’t have asked for a better gift.
I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to learn about how to improve my blogging and get in some fantastic workouts with everyone, including yoga, crossfit, trampoline BOUNCEcamp, and more! I’m also excited to finally meet so many bloggers that I’ve been chatting with over the interwebs and others whose blogs I’ve been following, like Brittany @ Eating Bird Food, Julie @ PBFingers, Gina @ Skinnytaste, and so many more!

And in the spirit of FitBloggin’ and a healthy living blog, Brittany shared a “This or That” survey that peaked my interest and seems oh so appropriate for the upcoming weekend!
1. Run/workout in the heat & humidity or freezing temps and snow?
I’d have to say heat, maybe not humidity. I mean, I do hot yoga because the stretches are so much deeper and it just feels good get a good sweat!
2. Have washboard or flat abs?
Flat abs. In reality though, I’d take either. No arguments here!
3. Dr. Oz or the Doctors?
It’s been a while since I’ve seen Dr. Oz and I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Doctors. Soooo Dr. Oz by default?
4. Cardio or strength?
5. Cravings: Protein or carbs?
Carbs. Carbs. Carbs! Growing up, I practically ate pasta everyday. These days, I crave oatmeal for breakfast like no one’s business!
Check out my delicious oatmeal recipes!
Chocolate Protein Oats
Cinnamon Raisin Overnight Protein Oats & Quinoa
Pumpkin Spice Latte Proatmeal
6. Jillian Michaels or Bob Harper?
Tone It Up! 😉
Honestly though, I haven’t done either of their workouts but I think I’d have to say Team Bob.
7. Frozen Yogurt or Ice cream?
Froyo all the way!
8. To train: upper body or lower body?
Lower body. There’s just nothing like waddling around like a penguin the day after an awesome workout!
9. Protein powder or food with protein?
Food with protein. While I like using protein powder in shakes and pancakes, I definitely prefer a more natural option on a regular basis.
10. Lunges or squats?
Squats. Lunges are quite possibly up there with burpees.
11. Sweet or salty?
Sweet! My sweet tooth shows no mercy!
12. Workout attire: cute or comfy?
At this point, comfy. Though, I find myself looking online recently for some cuter options.
13. Body Pump or heavy lifting?
Heavy lifting with some Body Pump thrown in every now and then for good measure.
14. Yoga or pilates?
Yoga. Hot, hot yoga!
15. Nike or Adidas?
16. Running on treadmill or outdoors?
Outdoors as long as it’s not too humid or too cold!
17. Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s?
Both! I have a Whole Foods so close to me that I usually opt for that, but I do love Trader Joe’s when I can make it out of the city. (Especially when I can get to Virginia!)
18. Summer or Winter Olympics?
Summer. I love the swimming!
19. Exercise classes or videos?
These days it’s videos since I don’t belong to a gym, but when I did, I’d go for the classes!
20. Steamed or roasted veggies?
Roasted, for sure! There’s just nothing like a perfectly roasted squash or brussel sprouts! Or maybe a roasted squash soup? 😉
Do you have an opinion about any of the survey questions? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
