This or That?

13 Oct

Helloooo from New York City!

Okay, so I’m not really blogging on my girls weekend in NYC.  I set this up to pop up while away.  I’m so high tech 😉

This survey has been floating around blogs for some time now and I couldn’t wait to get my fingers typing away at it.  I love surveys!  Take a look and feel free to play along in the comments below.

This or That?

  • Run or Work Out in the Heat and Humidity or the Freezing Cold?

If I have to choose, I guess I choose freezing cold.  I don’t like the idea of running and feeling like I’m breathing in a furnace.  The idea of running in “freezing cold” though makes my toes and nose shiver in fear.  The cold is coming…

  • Have Washboard Abs or Flat Abs?

Flat abs.

  • Dr. Oz or The Doctors?

Dr. Oz because I never saw The Doctors before.  It’s my default answer.  I really don’t think I care for watching either.

  • Cardio or Strength Workouts?

Cardio.  I like to move around a lot.  Strength is perfect for my lunch workouts though.

  • Cravings: Protein or Carbs?

Carbs.  Honestly, no contest.

Who can’t indulge in something like this at least once a week?

  • Jillian Michaels or Bob Harper?

Jillian.  I would respond better and get better results from her hard core yelling.  I feel like I could always find an out with Bob.  Although I do like him a lot too!

  • Frozen Yogurt or Ice Cream?

Frozen Yogurt.  It’s so refreshing and with all the new fro yo places popping up everywhere, the possibilities are endless!

  • Strength Training Upper Body or Lower Body?

Upper.  I prefer the upper body burn from the lower body.

  • Protein Powder or Food with Protein?

Food with protein, but protein smoothies are a close second!

  • Lunges or Squats?

Squats.  Lunges just suck.

  • Sweet or Salty?

Salty.  Too much sweet makes me feel sick instantly.  I’ll never pass on a little chocolate though.

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel. Love it.

  • Workout Attire: Cute or Comfy?

Both.  As long as it’s fitting and stays where it’s supposed to.  I can’t workout in baggy t-shirts.  They make me feel sluggish.

  • Body Pump or Heavy Lifting?

Body Pump!  I miss it so much.

  • Yoga or Pilates?

Pilates since I have only taken one real yoga class in my whole life.  I took pilates in college and loved it!

  • Favorite Fitness Brand?

I don’t have one since I shop the clearance rack for my workout attire.  As long as it meets the requirements for staying put on my body, I’m up for anything.

  • Running: Treadmill or Outdoors?

Outside for distance.  Treadmill for speed and high intensity work.  I can’t motivate myself enough outside to get my speed work out without the treadmill threatening me.

  • Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s?

Trader Joe’s by default.  I don’t typically shop at either, but Whole Foods is too far from where we live.

  • Summer or Winter Olympics?

Summer.  I love watching the swimming and diving.  Brings me back to many swim meets from years past.

  • Exercises Classes or Exercise Videos?

Classes.  I love the energy of being around other people with the loud music and pushing instructors.  I will do videos with my co-workers though.  Those can be just hysterical.

  • Steamed veggies or roasted veggies?

Steamed veggies.  Just cause it’s faster.

    I agree with most of your choices. 🙂 Hmm, the ones I disagree with…I would choose Bob over Jillian because I wouldn’t need that kind of motivation she gives and I love Bob! Sorry, ice cream beats frozen yogurt most days for me. 😉 Yoga would win over pilates, and I love exercise videos (but I’ve never taken a class, so I might love that too!!) 🙂

    I’m with you on froyo–it’s so, so good! Hope you and your friends are having fun in NYC! 🙂

      Thanks! I love FroYo, but if you are ever near Bryant Park, try Smush! It’s a build your own “deli” style ice-cream sandwich store. It was amazing. I was in heaven. Pictures will be up soon 😉

        OMG! That’s isn’t too far from me either! 🙂
