Return of Q&A Time

So it’s been a long time since I did a Q&A time… like, forever ago. Let’s get this party started!

QUESTIONThat Pink Girl asks…

What is your favorite running bra? I need new ones – they don’t make my fave anymore!


Some of my favorites are C9 Sports Bra by Champion, sold at Target

and I also like the Nike Pro Women’s Bra..

I try to find all my sports bra’s either on sale or I check out Marshall’s or TJMaxx. They can be super pricey… but of course worth it to protect the goods. ;)


QUESTION: Carolina asks…

“How many calories do you eat in a day?”

ANSWER: I’ll preference this by saying, everyone is different, height, weight, metabolism, etc. So be sure to consult your doctor or nutritionist to know what your daily recommended calorie intake should be. For me, I roughly take in anywhere form 1400 to 1600 calories a day. Depending on my physical activity.


QUESTION: Jessica from Dairy Free Betty asks…

I’m curious to know what you ended up getting!!” {related to the Fashion Swap Party}

ANSWER: Here’s what I got…

Top and Pants from J.Crew, Tops from Ann Taylor, Gap. Also not pictured, I grabbed a cute blue purse, black knee-high boots and couple of belts. That grey/yellow dress is cute, but I want to find a tailor who can turn it into a top for me. I had 35 + items I gave to swap, and I could have replaced those items, but I was having too much fun playing hostess. ;)


QUESTION: Amanda at Click. The Good  News asks…

That glass is adorable- where did you get it? I’m trying to transition away from reusing my bottles to cups with straws. Thanks!” {related to this post)

ANSWER: I got this beauty as a gift at the end of the school year from one of my preschool kids. I LOVE it. It’s about the size of a grande drink at Starbucks. (Yes, I measure everything according to Starbucks) This cup came from Pier One I’ve been informed. I’d love to get me more. Its hand wash only, so if you pick up one, don’t put it in the dish washer!! You wouldn’t want it to lose it’s pretty colors.


QUESTION: Tammie askes…

How old is your dog?


This little firecracker is about 2 years old. We got her from a (kill) shelter who knew nothing about her. Once we took Taxi to the vet, the doc said she was rough 6 months to 1 year old. We went with the 1 year old age, and have had her for 1 year this last April. We of course celebrated her “Gotcha Day“. Taxi is such a fun little pup. She has so much personality its unreal. She also makes for a great running partner and is up for a trip to the park anytime…

QUESTION: Whitney from Slimming Down for the Gown (Hop over to Whitney’s blog and send her some congrats, she’s getting married June 25, 2011) asks…

Did your goal weight line up with your expectations about what your body would look like? Or did you adjust your goal as you got closer?” {in reference to this post}


ANSWER: I love this question.

For those of you who are losing weight or have lost weight, you know that you started with a number in your head… whether it be a pants size or a weight number, you had a number in your head… For the longest time, I wanted to be a size 10. That was my goal for years. It didn’t matter so much to me how much I weighed, to me it was all about how I would feel in my clothes and I just knew that if I was a size 10, I’d be my healthiest weight possible, and that’s the only size I’d ever be able to be, without of course being “too thin” (I’m 5’10″). The funny thing is, I didn’t really know what a healthy weight was for me, and I surely didn’t know what “size” that would put me in. So as I set the goal weight that I needed to be, and started to lose weight, track my weight loss on a scale, my body started to look and feel better than what I expected. I passed my goal of wearing a size 10 and still had weight to lose (to be in a healthy weight/height range) and above all, I was feeling good in my own skin. Now that I’ve reached my goal weight, I’m happy with the way my body looks. Sure, there’s areas I definitely want to tone up (no flabby arms, please), but I know that will take time. Just like it took time for me to lose the weight. Nothing happens over night, its a journey, its a process. Once you submit yourself to that process, nothing but good can come out of it. :)

Thanks for all your questions. If you ever have a question you want me to answer… send it my way! :)
