WWI#50 and Random Facts About Me

It's Friday. Time to weigh-in. Looky there, I'm exactly the same weight as I was last week! I did NOT have a good weekend (I bought donuts on Saturday ... why do I do that? Then I eat donuts!). Saturday was very high on the intake. I did pretty good the rest of the week and managed a weekly deficit of 2534. Still, my average intake was 2429. That's high, even with my activity, which averaged out to a 3098 daily burn. I do really enjoy my activity.  Zumba every day. Elliptical every day. Some strength training to keep/gain muscle. A jog here and there (ok, THAT is only "exercise" ... I don't enjoy jogging). Getting some reading in while on the stationary bike.  It's not that I'm trying to out cardio my calories, I really NEED to stay active and moving and ... ok, I am trying to out cardio my calories. If you want more details on the day to day ... (Day to Day Doings) *Ü*

I'm linking up with  Fitness Friday with Jill and Aubrey  
and a late Weigh-In Wednesday.  

Onto the Friday Five ...

The DC Bloggers (Courtney, Mar and Cynthia) had a fun topic this week: Five Facts about You. I remember some years ago, there was a "25 Random Facts" thing going around Facebook. I filled it out then, and looked up mine. Most were still applicable. I had one ... "I don't know if I can live without Caller ID, Tivo and Blockbuster Online" which isn't really true anymore. I HAVE given up Tivo (PlayOn/PlayLater has taken over) and Blockbuster went out of business, so I really didn't have a choice there. I DO still need CallerId!). Anyway, I trimmed my list by five ... still leaving 20. I didn't know which five to focus on *Ü*

  1. I wear a pedometer and record my steps every single day.
  2. I always watch DVDs/Streaming with the subtitles on.
  3. I’ve been para-sailing, swimming with dolphins, snorkeling and gone for a ride in a hot air balloon.  
  4. I am a total homebody.  
  5. I was the lead in my high school musical.  
  6. I prefer Word Perfect to Microsoft Word.  
  7. I have a scar on my chin from falling on the edge of our family fireplace when I was two  years old. It isn’t very noticeable, but when it was showcased how Harrison Ford’s  character got a scar on his chin (the 3rd Indiana Jones film) everyone suddenly noticed  mine too.  
  8. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from BYU.  
  9. I didn’t get my ears pierced until I was out of high school.  
  10. I like to use ellipses ...
  11. I’m afraid of dogs.
  12. I ate a peanut butter and honey sandwich every single day for lunch until Jr. High ... and  I’ve never had once since. Same story with Cheetos (well, I didn’t have them every day,  but I loved them. Then I bought a big bag with my own money, ate half, and have never  had another).  
  13. I’ve got an entire room full of unused scrapbooking supplies.  
  14. I think the test for gestational diabetes (having to drink that horrid drink) is the worst part of a pregnancy.  
  15. I was never able to potty train one child before the next one came along ... I went for 15+ years changing diapers with NO break.
  16. I subscribe to ALL the fitness magazines (Shape, Self, Women’s Health, Fitness, Health,  Prevention). Used to be the scrapbooking magazines ...
  17. I am nervous behind the wheel of a car ... I hate driving on freeways or places I haven’t  been to before. My parents had to FORCE me to get my driver’s license.
  18. I had a cancer scare when I was a junior in high school. For about 36 hours, I thought I  was going to die. (Misdiagnosis of a lumpy lymph-node ... turned out to be nothing).  
  19. I love to eat kids cereal for breakfast ... or dinner ... (mmmm .... Cocoa Puffs, Apple  Jacks, Capn. Crunch, Fruity Pebbles, Cookie Crisp).
  20. I’ll never say never again.


  1. Great list, I don't think I have ever watched a movie with the subtitles on:)
    But I am like you in the eating kids cereals, I always have my Capn Crunch Berries, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch on hand:)

  2. I like ellipses as well...

    Good job getting workouts in every day!!

  3. It was nice getting to know a little more about you.

    I think I over use ellipses......

  4. Found your blog through Jill's Blog Hop, HELLO :)
    FUn fact posts are always so FUN to read :)
    My roommate loves subtitltes on movies, I hate it! ahaha they distract me from the movie!
    I got my ears pierced after I graduated highschool!
    I hate driving as well....
    AND I am a homebody too, sometimes :) content with being in my pjs by 9 every single night alone... :)

  5. I also use subtitles/closed captioning all the time. My husband hates it, but I have issues with my hearing and honestly it helps me so much!
