About Me

My Photo
I am a teacher, fitness/yoga instructor, runner, celebrity stalker, chocolate lover, embarrassing dancer, wine guzzler, can't-live-without-my-girlfriends kind of girl. I also have a collection of high heels that strongly outweighs my collection of runners. My goal is to find balance in my life through health and exercise- and when I say balance, I mean kicking ass in the gym and enjoying food, wine, family, friends, and basking in celebrity news. Let's eat clean and do some craaahaaayzy workouts together... followed by a glass of wine.

Butterfly Blogger Award- I apologize in advance.

Pin It
Yay- a blogger award from the lovely Christina at The Athletarian! This woman rocks my socks off- I'm pretty sure the only reason I have followers is because she gives me shout outs on her blog so I probably don't have to tell any of you to follow her, because you probably already do! She is gorgeous, cute as a button, and just a liiiiiiiiiiitle bit crazy- the girl works out like, all the time. I try to pressure her into drinking martinis and wearing high heels and she tries to pressure me into eating better and working out. It's a fair trade, I'd say. 

Hahahahah we are creeps. 

So here goes: Christina tagged me in the Butterfly Blogger Award! 
Is this grammatically correct? God, I'm a loser. 
So lucky for you folks I get to answer really random questions about myself! I know what you're thinking: Could this Tuesday get ANY better? The answer is no. 

Name your favourite colour: Blue, I think. I find this question annoying. I like lots of colours. And black. My favourite colour is ROYGBIV. Take that. 

I don't discriminate.
Name your favourite song: My favourite song(s) at the moment are Bruno Mars- Marry You, anything by Adele, and David Guetta- Titanium. But my favourite song of ALL TIME would have to be from Billy Ocean's Greatest Hits album. 

Don't pretend you've never heard his fierce beats. 

Name your favourite dessert: Why are these questions making me irrationally angry? As if someone could pick ONE favourite dessert. Oh... so people actually COULD? And I'm just a cow? Great. Then I'll say a nice cup of fruit or one square of dark chocolate. I couldn't possibly eat more. 

Oh, I'd love to have a piece of cake! I didn't even know there was any. 

What wizzes you off:  When people use "wizz" instead of "piss". I have terrible road rage. I thought being a Yoga Teacher would chill me out a bit, but people are so freaking slow sometimes. DRIVE YOUR CAR. USE THE PEDAL. PUT YOUR SIGNAL ON. CHECK YOUR BLIND SPOT. 

Truth: I have road rage because 99% of the time I'm the one that's late. There, I said it. But still... people can't drive.


 When you're upset you: can't answer this question either. It really depends. I may curl up into a ball and not leave my couch, I might go for a long run, I might kick the crap out of the heavy bag, I might spend a ridiculous amount of money in a record amount of time, or I might eat my body weight in chocolate ice cream. All healthy options, I'd say. 

See? If it's on a magnet, it must be healthy.

This needed to make the blog, for obvious reasons.

Your favourite pet:  I LOVE dogs and cats. I grew up with both- German Shepherds are my favourite dogs and I would DIE to have a cat. Too bad my husband is conveniently "deathly allergic" to them. 

This cat is plotting my death.

Black or white:  Black: purse, shoes, jacket, pants, coffee, ice cream topping, hair colour when roots coming in. White: shirt, socks, ice cream, snow, flowers.

Black shirt, massive wine glass. Only thing wrong with this photo is the fact that my glass is empty.

Your biggest fear:  #1: Not getting to 100 followers by the end of September. #2: Dying. #3: Those stupid millipedes that invade my house and likely go through my closet. 


Best feature:  Definitely my face. 

For real though, I don't mind my gams. Yes, gams. 

Just a regular night out with my gals and my gams. 

Everyday attitude:  Sarcastic. Sometimes bitchy. Annoyingly excited when teaching fitness. 

Do your push ups or this face will haunt your dreams.

What is perfection:  Complete happiness with oneself. (That's what Christina wrote, and I felt guilty erasing it to put my answer. Well done, Christina. My answer involves a beach, Wickerhead chocolate, US Weekly, and personal shoppers. Pretty similar to yours, I'd say.)

Per. Fection. 

Guilty pleasure:  Shit. I guess I can't answer with beach, Wickerhead chocolate, US Weekly, and personal shoppers, can I? Chocolate, celebrities, wine, and shopping are definite. 

As is my love for Celine Dion. Girl is my idol. Check out the bod to go along with that angelic voice. 

Now if we could just get rid of her creepy husband. 

So here's how it works: I need to tag 7 other people to share the same fun facts for the Butterfly Award! It's on you, ladies!

Kristine @ Running On Hungry

  16. YAY! I'm so excited to do this!

    What pisses me off: DRIVERS IN SAN FRANCISCO. It's like this is their first time EVER on the road. Good Lord, it's not that difficult! Not joking when I say that I start yelling every swear word in the book about 2 seconds after I get into the car, and then start attacking their personal character.

    PS- I LOVE Celine. Meet me in Vegas with your sparkliest heels and we'll go see her!!
