Random random survey

Hi friends! Hope you’re having an amazing week. We’re off on some adventures with Kyle and Meg, so today I have a little blog survey.

These surveys remind me of the Myspace days haha. It’s always fun to read these on other blogs, and I’d love if you answered some of these questions in the comments section. I love getting to know more about all of you, especially since we can’t drink coffee together in person.

Here we goooooooo 🙂

Random blog survey

Guilty pleasure: Chocolate chips out of the bag. I’m also notorious for pouring chocolate chips into the peanut butter jar and “digging” them out with a spoon. It’s like a sport. 

Fave show to watch: I love the show Botched. Like, I’m obsessed with it. I think the doctors are amazing and hilarious (and genuinely care about helping people) and that the patients are all fascinating. I joke that Tuesdays are hard for me because Botched and Fixer Upper (my other fave) are on all day. 

Favorite healthy eats: a giant salad beast. I could have one every day for lunch, so I’ve been trying to spend some time chopping veggies and making protein for the week so it’s more realistic to enjoy one on a consistent basis. 

Favorite treat: this is a tough one. It’s probably a tie between salty, hot tortilla chips with fresh guacamole, or a gooey brownie cake-like creation.

What supplements do you take: the list goes on. I’m working with my naturopath to balance my hormone levels after P’s birth, and right now I’m on a mix of herbal supplements (including chaste tree, chamomile, ashwaganda and rehmannia), collagen (this is the one I’ve been taking for a few months now and love it), and a prenatal. I want to add back in a DHA supplement, too.

Workout love: I’m all over the place. My very favorites are Orangetheory, dance cardio, yoga, Spinning, BODYPUMP,  barre, and strength training. Basically I love it all.

Celebrity crush: Michael Buble and Ryan Reynolds. Yas.

Fave thing in your makeup drawer: I feel like I always have a new fave! This week it’s the charcoal mask from Beautycounter. My skin is really sensitive so I have to be careful about the types of masks I use, and this one didn’t burn, and left my skin feeling super soft + smooth. I’m excited to add it into the weekly rotation. 

Health or fitness tip you’d share: Aim for a grand scheme of things approach. I used to feel like if I had an “off” day, the rest of the week was ruined. I say this in my book, but just because you have a flat tire doesn’t mean you slash the rest. You change the tire and move on. I believe that everything balances out, and as long as you make a conscious effort to move in a way that’s enjoyable and challenging, while nourishing yourself with healthy whole foods, the work will pay off. 

Where do you buy your workout clothes: I love trying out different spots but the majority of my closet is Lorna Jane, lululemon and Fabletics

Ideal date night: Sleeping? Maybe some wine? I party hard. haha

Nail color: Lilacism by Essie

Wearing: destroyed jeans and a white tank top

Favorite cocktail: either a margarita or Moscow mule.

Favorite workout jam: right now, it’s “Move Your Body” by Sia. Steady on the verses, sprint like crazy on the choruses. It’s perfect. 

Bachelor or Bachelorette: I haven’t been into either lately, but if I had to pick, The Bachelor. (The last few have been giant goobers, though.)

Hidden talent: I’m really good at picking things up with my toes. I wish I could say this talent emerged when I had a giant pregnant belly, but no, it existed long before then. I just refined this talent when I was pregnant.

If you could vacation anywhere, where would you go? Back to Italy, or to NYC to stand in the Hamilton line for days. 

So tell me friends:

What are you wearing? Celebrity crush? #1 treat food? If you could be anywhere right now, where would it be?

    Love these! I’m such a sucker for blogger surveys – I might have to answer these myself. ‘Cuz, ya’ know… why not right? Ha!

    Wearing: Still in my pj’s because it’s before 8am here… but cute ones. We just had our wedding/I had my bachelorette party and was gifted a ton of cute pj sets because I’m known for my fondness of comfy clothes, ha.
    Celebrity Crush: I guess Gerard Butler (it’s the accent)… though the last time I think I said I had a celebrity crush, I think it was Devon Sawa circa “Casper.” No idea what he looks like now, so I’m debating about sticking with that one.
    #1 Treat Food: Right now, it’s an Oreo Brownie Ice Box Cake. And I strangely enough have the recipe on the blog today. Ermahgah… it’s too good!

    Have a great time with your friends!
    XO, Jessica

    I’m at work & it’s hotter than you-know-what today so I’m wearing dressy capris w/ a sleeveless flowy top & heels. My celebrity crush is Chris Hemsworth (have you seen Ghostbusters??? … wiping drool off of keyboard). I have a very hard time walking away from cupcakes. I def have a sweet tooth. Bonus answer: We are huge Bachelor fans over here, & I think we prefer the Bachelor over the Bachelorette ‘cuz more crazy comes out. 😛
    Have a fabulous visit w/ Kyle & Meg!!!

  3. Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! on July 21, 2016 at 7:52 am

  5. Kelli @ Hungry Hobby on July 21, 2016 at 8:23 am

    The oldest workout cloths I have ripped shirt and faded shorts.(got to save the expensive stuff for the gym today I’m working out at home ha) celebrity crush? Terrible keeping up with anything pop culture I know I fail – is Nsync still a thing? I wish I could either be back in bed, in Hawaii, or sipping wine watching the monsoons!

  6. Alexis caldwell on July 21, 2016 at 8:35 am

    Picking up things with my toes is my hidden talent too! Ive done it my whole life. It became very useful while being pregnant while my husband was deployed. I got sick of bending over. Lol It continues to be my prefered way of picking things off the floor even though my husband thinks it’s gross. I’ve noticed my four year old doing it too. Which makes me insanely happy. 🙂

    • Fitnessista on July 21, 2016 at 10:36 pm

      that is so awesome. i will be so proud the day liv picks something up with her toes haha

  7. Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious on July 21, 2016 at 8:37 am

    My perfect date night is on the couch with pizza and wine watching a movie. Going out is fun but my couch is more relaxing!

  8. Stacie Smith on July 21, 2016 at 9:20 am

    I’m currently wearing a workout tank and shorts (my standard uniform when school is out for the summer and I don’t have to teach), my favorite treat is peanut butter M&Ms or hot homemade bread with peanut butter on top. My celebrity crush is Hugh Jackman! He can do action, drama, and he can sing! If I could be anywhere right now, I would be hiking in the mountains.

    • Fitnessista on July 21, 2016 at 10:36 pm

      oh i love hugh jackman, too 🙂

  9. Erin @ Her Heartland Soul on July 21, 2016 at 9:45 am

    I can pick things up with my toes too! haha It’s so weird but has come in handy quite a bit. Also, Botched is awesome!

  10. Debbi on July 21, 2016 at 10:24 am

    Hi Guna,

    • Fitnessista on July 21, 2016 at 10:36 pm

      i’ve been using the great lakes collagen but recently picked up some vital proteins to try, too

  11. Sarah Gottfried on July 21, 2016 at 11:11 am

    What are you wearing– black skinny jeans (the only thing I want to wear these days), and a tied chambre button up over a t-shirt sporting my Cleveland pride

    Celebrity crush– someone once asked me to describe my perfect man in 3 words: “Joseph Gordon Levitt”

    #1 treat food– creme brûlée flavored donut

    If you could be anywhere right now, where would it be– Iceland, I think the most beautiful place I’ve visited

    • Lisa on July 21, 2016 at 11:38 am


    • Fitnessista on July 21, 2016 at 10:35 pm

  12. Kelsey on July 21, 2016 at 11:15 am

    What are you wearing? I am wearing grey slacks and a flowing top #officelife . my Celebrity crush is definitely Matthee Mcconaughey (alright, alright,alright!) and my #1 treat food is definitely Reece’s peanut butter cups! If I could be anywhere right now, I would def choose to be on a nice beach just relaxing with a pinacolada in hand! 🙂

  13. Meagan @ My Life as Mrs on July 21, 2016 at 11:23 am

    Hah! I think we’d get along well! I LOVE Fixer Upper. Chip and Joanna are the best ever. I’m amazing at picking things up with my toes, I’m basically a monkey. Annnd Michael Buble is my fave. We basically play all Michael Buble and Frank Sinatra at our reception.

    • Fitnessista on July 21, 2016 at 10:35 pm

      a girl after my own heart 😉

  14. Lisa on July 21, 2016 at 11:34 am

    Wearing: an old dress from Old Navy that could benefit from some pockets and better quality material!

    Celebrity Crush: Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys…I can’t believe I’m admitting this in public…

    #1 Treat Food: donuts for sure, particularly the cake donuts

    Where would I be: on the beach, in the sun, reading a book or maybe taking a nap 🙂

  15. Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine on July 21, 2016 at 12:59 pm

    Haha your chocolate chip habit reminds me of when I was in like kindergarten and I would have playdates at this one friend’s house. her mom always had a huge bag of chocolate chips in the pantry and we would always go in and sneak the bag up to her room and eat the entire thing (and get in trouble!) Haha!

  16. Justine Mckenzie on July 21, 2016 at 1:56 pm

    If I could be anywhere right now it be New Zealand. I travelled there for 6months about 7 years ago with my college roommate but now I wanna go back with the hub’s and the baby and show them all my fav spots.

    • Fitnessista on July 21, 2016 at 10:34 pm

      i’d love to visit new zealand!

  17. Jessie R on July 21, 2016 at 2:17 pm

    Oh girl, chocolate chips straight out of the freezer, put them in a bowl with a big spoonful of peanut butter. Microwave that up for 30ish -45 seconds and mix it together… Drool.

    I’m craving all the chocolate and peanut butter today. I’m wearing a pink t-shirt dress from J Crew with a distressed vest over it. It’s crazy hot here in KC, so no pants all week long for me! Have a great visit with Kyle and Meg, yay that they live closer to you now!!

    • Fitnessista on July 21, 2016 at 10:34 pm

      that is definitely happening
      thank you! so happy they’re close by again

  18. queenoffitness on July 21, 2016 at 9:22 pm

    I wanna play!!

    Wearing…pajamas (it’s 12:30 AM), a zippered cardigan and a blanket. I got the AC cranked to 66. It is hot in PA and I like to be cold to sleep. I feel better when I can burrow under the blankets.

    Celeb Crush…hmmm…well I have fancied Usher and Prince William since 1997, Buster Posey (the catcher for the Giants) and old school Bob Harper, before he started dressing kind of bizarre, I find very sexy (Yes I am well aware he is not attracted to women, but damn his legs are fine).

    #1 treat food…anything within arm’s reach. Tonight it was a Coney Island Hard Root Beer because I didn’t have anything else worthy of the label “treat.”

    • Fitnessista on July 21, 2016 at 10:33 pm

      gahhhh i love usher 🙂 and your comment about bob harper made me laugh. i’ve always thought he was attractive

  19. Sheila on July 22, 2016 at 8:08 am

    Hi – can you provide more information on the benefits on taking collagen and why do you still take prenatal vitamins? I have been thinking of taking them (I am 48 and in no way having another child) because my hair was in much better shape so curious to get your thoughts. Thanks!

    • Fitnessista on July 22, 2016 at 10:35 am

      sure! i’ve been using it for healing from my surgeries, and an extra way to get protein. my hair and nails are growing like crazy and feel much stronger. i will probably always take a prenatal from now on and my doc said she believes women should keep taking them even after babies

      • Sheila on July 22, 2016 at 10:44 am

        Thank you!

  20. Stacey on July 22, 2016 at 8:11 am

    OMG I love eating the dark chocolate chips out of the bag too! obv their great on their own, but I like to pair them with a few pieces of the Australian licorice from Trader Joes, for some reason the combination is amazing. I also like the sweet and spicy pecans (from trader joes) and having chocolate chips with them too!

  21. Juliana on July 22, 2016 at 11:44 am

    I’d love to be drinking champagne on a yacht in the Mediterranean right about now. How do I get that job?

  22. Jennifer on July 22, 2016 at 1:04 pm

    I have long slender toes, so picking things up with them is really easy! My husband jokes I have triangle feet (my big toe is slightly smaller than the “pointer” toe, making a triangular shape) or that I have monkey feet. But hey, it’s handy!

  23. Trista Slowik on July 28, 2016 at 2:53 pm

    Try adding a pinch of sea salt to your PB and chocolate chips. LIFE CHANGING! ha
