Breakfast in bed. I was able to muster up the energy to go to the kitchen and make a fried egg with Vermont white cheddar cheese on a toasted bagel and slice a peach. Heading out to see my friend’s baby in a few!
And Nikhita tagged me in some questions, so here they are. Happy weekend, folks.
1//Coffee, tea, or chocolate?
ALL OF THEM! I could never choose.
2//Why did you start blogging and when?
Years ago. Mainly for marathon training motivation. Oh, how times have changed.
3//What is your favorite workout?
Walking. Just taking a walk.
4//If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I’m big on traveling, so this is a tough question. I could live in lots of places, and there are so many places I haven’t seen yet.
Favorites from places I’ve already been: Yellow Springs, OH; Taos, NM; Edinburgh; Amsterdam; and London. I’ve always wanted to see Sweden though. I feel this weird draw to Sweden despite never having been there, having no ancestry to it whatsoever, and not knowing the language. Maybe I’m just fascinated by it?
5//What is your favorite dessert?
Cookies. Always cookies.
6//Name a book or movie that changed your life.
I read Wild by Cheryl Strayed last year and that was illuminating in so many ways. Everything from cherishing family to facing our deepest fears.
7//Name a mantra that you live by.
Oh, geez. This is corny, but I over-think things, so I always have to tell myself: just do it.
8//Describe your perfect day.
Friends and family. Good food. Warm weather. Doing something active.
9//Do you eat to live or live to eat?
Live to eat.
10//What is one trait you wish you had?
I wish I could sing. Karaoke was painful in Japan.
11//Name one thing you’re grateful for today.
The ability to have a leisurely morning.
