Food, Fitness and Fun Survey

Seeing as I’ve just joined a new gym, I thought it was fitting to do this survey. I saw it on Chrissy’s blog which is one of my faves for when I need fitspiration!

1. What did you eat for breakfast?

I tend not to eat breakfast as I can never fully stomach food first thing. I tend to have a yoghurt when I wake up and then have a couple of slices of toast mid-morning. If I’m at work, I have dinner at around 11.

2. How much water do you drink a day?

During the week, I don’t drink anywhere near enough! On weekends at work, I drink about three litres. During the week, I try to aim for two.

3. What is your current favourite workout?

At the moment whilst I get back into fitness, I’m aiming for 20-30 minutes cardio in the gym and then 15 minutes stretching. I’m hoping when I’m comfortable with this, that I can add in more targeted exercises either at the gym or when I get home. I’m also looking into the classes at the gym and seeing which ones will fit into my schedule,

4. How many calories do you eat a day?

For me, I try not to count calories. I eat when I’m hungry and am trying to eat several small meals a day rather than snacking on chocolate and crisps constantly. It’s really helping to keep myself busy so I don’t think about food.

5. What are your favourite healthy snacks?

I’ve just tried frozen yoghurt for the first time and love it! I also eat a lot of chicken so buy chicken skewers and warm them up in the microwave for a snack.

6. What do you usually eat for lunch?

Chicken sandwiches are my go-to. I love bread so would never cut that out of my diet.

7. What’s your favourite body part to strength train?

Like Chrissy, I love doing upper body moves as well as abs.

8. What’s your least favourite body part to strength train?

Lower body for sure. I have dodgy knees so struggle to do lunges and squats for long periods of time.

9. Do you take vitamins or supplements?

I take lots of vitamins. In a morning, I take a chewy multivitamin, Vitamin D and an allergy tablet. Then with tea, I take an iron tablet and a vitamin B complex tablet. Before I go to bed, I take a zinc tablet too.

10. Who is your biggest supporter?

My boyfriend om is the person who pushes me the most to be a better version of myself.

11. Do you have a gym membership?

I do now, I’m at JD Gyms.

12. How many hours of sleep do you get a night? 

I aim for eight hours a night. If not, I must have at least 6 or I’m super grumpy in the morning!

13. What has been the best thing that has changed since you committed to the healthy lifestyle?

Well I’m only on day three so I can’t really comment as of yet!

14. What was the last healthy thing you did?

I did a few stretches when I woke up.

15. What is one of your fitness goals this year?

I want to try different ways of getting fit such as classes but my main goal is to stick with it. I need to schedule in my workouts around the rest of my life.

I’m such a fussy eater that my diet will always be a work in progress but I’m determined just to cut back on junk food and exercise regularly. I’m aiming to lose a bit of weight but for me it’s about getting healthy and feeling good!
