If you now us, you know we love a good survey. So, when I saw this survey on Paige’s and Katie’s blogs, I swiftly dropped it in my favorites to remember to do it on just a lazy Sunday evening such as this one. Here we go!
1. Run/workout in the heat and humidity or freezing cold temps and snow?
Amy: Freezing cold for sure. My first half marathon was about 45 degrees and rainy. My second was mid 80s and full sun. While I bested my time the second time around, the first was very enjoyable…here is photographic proof. 🙂
Ashley: I would also have to vote freezing cold! I started running in the summer so really all I know is running in the heat and I’m not sure I can say I really LIKE it.
2. Washboard abs or flat abs?
Amy: Flat. I feel like washboard can look weird sometimes.
3. Dr. Oz or The Doctors?
Amy: Well, I’ve only ever seen Dr. Oz, so I guess he has to be the winner here.
Ashley: Is it bad that I have never seen either one?
4. Cardio or strength?
Amy: Well, I like to switch it up, so I enjoy both. I’ll probably go with cardio, though, just because the time flies by while I’m doing it.
Ashley: I’ve only been doing Cardio but talked to Amy this morning about the fact that maybe I have to start adding more than just running to my work out routines.
5. Cravings: Protein or carbs?
Amy: Carbs, carbs, and more carbs. If I wouldn’t feel horrendously guilty, I could make a meal out of bread.
Ashley: Carbs… I struggle to find a good source of Protein that I really like.
6. Jillian Michaels or Bob Harper?
Amy: Bob. I just love him. 🙂
Ashley: I don’t know who Bob Harper is… I better find out. Jillian Michaels is intimidating but she does her job well.
7. Frozen yogurt or ice cream?
Amy: Fro yo. For some reason I feel like ice cream is too sweet.
Ashley: Fro Yo!
8. To train: upper body or lower body?
Amy: Probably upper body. I’m a wuss and lower body workouts make me sore for days, haha.
Ashley: Lower body
9. Protein powder or food with protein?
Amy: Food with protein. I was on a protein powder kick or awhile, but I’m kind of in a stage right now where it grosses me out. Peanut butter is the better way to go. 🙂
Ashley: Food with protein…I feel weird adding powder things to my food or drinks.
10. Squats or lunges?
Amy: Squats. I especially love sumo squats. 🙂
11. Sweet or salty?
Amy: I have an insatiable sweet tooth.
12. Workout attire: cute or comfy?
Amy: A mix of both. I like to find cute things, but if they aren’t comfortable, I won’t wear them.
Ashley: comfy..there is usually NOTHING cute about my workout clothes.
13. Body Pump or heavy lifting?
Amy: Can’t really choose, as I’ve never done Body Pump, but it seems like something I might like.
Ashley: I don’t really know many details about either of those…
14. Yoga or Pilates?
Amy: Yoga. Although the only Pilates I’ve done is a rather lame video.
Ashley: I haven’t tried either one but i’d love to try yoga.
15. Nike or Adidas?
Amy: No preference here.
Ashley: I don’t prefer one to the other.
16. Running: On the treadmill or outside?
Amy: No question here: outside it is. I can’t stand the treadmill.
Ashley: Love outside.. I have yet to try running on a treadmil but i’m not a fan of walking on it.
17. Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s?
Amy: I’ve never been to Whole Foods, so I guess TJ’s wins this battle.
Ashley: I enjoy Trader Joe’s. I’ve never shopped at Whole Foods but I have tried food purchased from there and it was good too.
18. Summer or Winter Olympics!
Amy: Summer! Pretty sure I have never watched so much TV in my life as I have in the past two weeks. I even watched speed walking…
Ashley: Summer! I’m watching the closing ceremony right now and it is kind of sad to see it end.
19. Exercise classes or exercise videos?
Amy: I love working out with others, so classes it is. I just wish there was a more convenient option for my time, budget, and schedule.
Ashley: I’ve been a “loner” with my workouts lately so I might have to vote videos.
20. Steamed veggies or roasted veggies?
Amy: Well, I like them either way, as I am a bit of a rabbit and love me some veggies. Roasted would probably be my preference though.
Ashley: Steamed, yum!
We would love to hear from you! Pick one of the choices and answer in the comments!
