I been tagged! And other workout stuff

I really haven't been in to blogging lately as it just seemed to me this week I was saying the same old crud. About doing well on the diet and exercise and then not doing so well with it. Was going to write about the zen of weight lifting and how I'm getting into it. I will do a post soon about positive or negative motivation thing/pictures I've had up for some time on my pantry door. One is a fat picture that I hate when we went to Hawaii a few years ago and we had this luau pic done of everyone and I just couldn't believe how fat I was. The other is of me on my honeymoon at a normal weight. I have them up side by side for years on the inside of the pantry door but I rarely look at them. The other day I saw them and was wondering, 'did this ever do me any good as far as motivation?' I'll try to scan them or something to show you or get them on disc so I can post them. My workout has been good, I've been doing long workouts a few days this week and doing about 1 and 1/2 hours and some days and feeling pretty good though I need to pick up some new running shoes....hopefully tomorrow!
I've been tagged by Amanda at 'What about your hips' (sorry can't figure out how to do a hyperlink right now). I enjoy reading her blog as she is one of the most honest and real bloggers out there. Here's the tag:
A- Available or single? Available or single? Isn't that the same thing? I am married :)
B- Best Friend? Her name is Dawn and she lives far away and we really don’t see each other but once a year but I still count her as my best friend though I have others as we can talk about anything and just really have a good time together.
C- Cake or Pie? Chocolate pie or boston cream pie.
D- Drink of Choice? Diet coke but drinking more of the flavored waters.
E- Essential Item? Lately, workout clothes and running shoes.
F- Favorite Color? I like any kind of blue, especially Caribbean blue but like the dark sapphire shade too.
G- Gummi Bears or Worms? Gummi Bears!
H- Hometown? Oak Harbor, Washington, usa.
I- Indulgence? Chocolate yogurt but lately ww ice creams.
J- January or February? February... valentines day and my birthday month!
K- Kids and names? Yes, Chase.
L- Life is incomplete without? Family, friends, and my health.
M- Marriage Date? August 1991. Man, we’re old married farts.
N- Number of Siblings? 2 sisters Shawn and Denise... both older than me.
O- Oranges or apples? Like them both! But if I had to choose, we love our applies out here in Washington, usually like the red delicious or the braeburn.
P- Phobias/Fears? Snakes, spiders, mice.
Q- Favorite Quote? "Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right.” Or “It's not whether you get knocked down; it's whether you get up.”
R- Reason to Smile? When my son or hubby says ‘I Love you’ for no reason.
S- Season? Summer... love the sunshine and warm days.
T- Tag three people! Christie, Sarah (living to feel good), and Fat bitch (if you are reading this) and Spider63! Ok, that was 4 people, oh well.
U- Unknown fact about me? Can’t think of anything too unusual, maybe that I was a scuba dive instructor for years and lived in far way places like Hawaii and Cayman Islands. Seems so long ago now.
V- Vegetable you hate? Brussel sprouts, or cooked spinach. Yech.
W- Worst habit? Nail biter sometimes.
X- X-rays you’ve had? Chest xray for physical, seems to live in the Caymans it is a requirement also that you have an hiv test that is negative…seems like they don’t want anyone working there that is sick. Funny because if they are so paranoid then what about the millions of visitors that can fratanize with those workers? Ha ha. I’ve also recently had a back xray due to a fall I had last spring and also an xray of my finger when I broke it.
Y- Your favorite food? Love pizza or most kinds of pasta but really limiting these types of food lately as they are trigger foods for me.
Z - Zodiac? I’m a pisces and that seems to fit me. I love the ocean and sealife and live in a dreamworld (just kidding) and can be wishy washy and change my mind a lot or have trouble deciding on something and I think I have quite a bit of intuition about people sometimes.
More that you wanted to know I’m sure!! Have a great day!

I just had to google Boston Cream Pie. I've never heard of it. The recipe I saw looks very yummy. I can see why you like it, and why we should also stay away from it! hehe. Don't know how the weather is over here but it was 40 degrees here today (that's 104 degrees fahrenheit!!)
Hope you're having a great week.

Hi Angelfish, thanks for filling in the questions... I forgot to leave you a message that I tagged you, but you already came along to my blog and read that you were tagged :) Scuba diving is a fear of mine, I couldn't imagine going underwater... I am scared of fish touching me... how weird is that?!?! Can't believe you have to have a HIV test to live in the Caymans... wow. Hope your weekend is going well. Take care :) Amanda.

My daughter is a Pisces. I think your being a scuba dive instructor is pretty cool. Maybe you can post some of your favorite stories?
