We Want to Know... Wednesday?

Okay, okay so technically it is Thursday, but you see I just got a new book Arbitrate by Megan Thomason, part of the DayNight series, it doesn't actually come out for a few more days but I have an advanced copy and oh my gosh I can't put it down!  Hence why this post is a day late, better late than never.  So today I am linking up with Kenzie and Scriptor.

Were you athletic as a child?
  Sort of?  I was always a fast runner and in junior high no one could stop me in flag football.  I also did play t-ball and softball.  One year I played third base and would run and dive to catch foul balls, ending up with bloody scratched up knees. I could also make the throw from 3rd to 1st and rarely if ever stuck out.  I even made the all-star team my last year of softball but that was my last year as I chickened out about going to fast-pitch.  Other than softball  I wasn't really allowed encouraged to play too many sports.  I had open heart surgery when I was five and my pediatrician was worried that school coaches might push me too hard.  My heart doctor wasn't as worried though, but I think I used that as a crutch at times.

Did you play organized sports?
  Yep, one year of t-ball and 3 or 4 years of softball (see above) but nothing really after that.

Me the year I played t-ball
What do you do for exercise now?
  Ummmm..... yeah um... nothing.  Chase Ryder around?  Ask me this last year and I would tell you I was working out 3 times a week, hour long boot camp style workout, and running at least 3 miles every Saturday.   Then summer hit and I didn't feel like dragging all my kids to work out.  Then school started again and yea I just never got back to it.  Need to recommit!

Would you rather exercise or diet?
  Exercise for sure!  I love food too much.  Plus I have the hardest time wanting to work out but I never regret doing it and feel so good after the fact.

If you didn't have to worry about calories or fat, what one food would you eat ad nauseam?
  Cheese- any kind of cheese on just about everything and by itself.

Did you play any sports as a kid?

  2. I have been terrible at getting into an exercise routine since we got here. It's like once you get out of it, it is twice as hard to get back in...probably because you're more aware of how much time it takes up! :o) I need more motivation.

  3. Mmmm, cheese. So many varieties and so little time. I am also having a hard time finding time to exercise. With it dark in the mornings, I just want to sleep. and evenings a given over to family stuff, like dinner, homework, something resembling quality family togetherness. Need to carve some time for myself somewhere to exercise.

  4. I know what you mean about getting caught up in a book! I was up until past 1 a.m. the other night because I couldn't put Gone Girl down until I finished it. So many crazy plot twists!
    I didn't know you had open heart surgery! Good for you still being so active though, that's great! My knees kill me when I exercise too much, and I use that as a huge excuse to get out of things. I really need to stop though ha ha.
    Cheese is delicious!!
    Thanks for linking up with us :D

  5. My treadmill has saved me when it comes to exercising with little kids! Though now I much prefer yoga and practice usually 6 times a week! It's good to find some form of exercise you like, and even then it's hard to do sometimes! I really like cheese too. And BREAD in all it's varieties. And every baked good treat in the universe!

  6. I ran xc and track in high school and college. I still run. They didn't have a lot of sports options for girls when I was growing up. I remember volleyball and basketball in high school but I am short (and uncoordinated, haha) so I ran. I'd much rather exercise than diet. I like food way too much!! Just liked your photography site on Facebook too...I didn't realize you had two sites before!

  7. I played softball for one season, I think? but I was horrible at it so I played soccer for several years instead. My Dad coached too so that was fun. :) Love the pic of you! And if I did not have to worry about calories I would eat cheeseCAKE. ;p

    1. Lol- yes sadly, I am not the biggest cheese cake fan, which is odd as I LOVE cream cheese.

  8. Like I said, I played church softball for 3 years in a row. I never played for the community or at school. I totally could have. Chocolate, bread, steak....do I have to choose just ONE! :( hahaha.

    1. Yes chocolate could have easily been on my list too.

  9. It's so hard to find the time to work out. I'm sure it gets harder as kids get older and busy with their own activities. I love cheese so much. That reminds me of that Friends episode where Monica says she'd live in a house made of cheese. :-)

    1. Lol! Yes, I don't think a house made of cheese would work for me as I would soon not have a house :)

  10. Yey food! I like food too! And Matt Bomer (White Collar) was on Rachael Ray yesterday and he said he chases his 3 kids around for exercise so I totally think chasing Ryder around counts :)

    1. Yes! Once I am in the habit I do great, starting is just so hard.
