Happy Monday! Today is a tough one because it’s the first day back after a week off. To top it off, I have my full day, 3 different preps, which means I switch gears from English honors to yearbook to AVID. And then after school I have my mid-year evaluation. To top it off, I’ve got a really bad sinus headache. But, I’ll get through it, and it will be Tuesday before you know it.
This week, and for the next month, FMM is moving locations. Sarah over at Losing Weight and Having Fun is hosting FMM for the time being, and I’m excited to discover her blog and meet a bunch of new bloggers.
If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section at: Losing Weight and Having Fun so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!
1. Introduce yourself in under 10 words.
I’ve lost 125 lbs, teacher, live in the Bay Area.
2. How did you find Friend Makin Mondays?
I first discovered Kenlie’s blog in July 2011, and have been participating in FMM as often as I can since. A lot of the time I don’t write my FMM posts until later in the day/evening on Mondays, or sometimes I even sneak them in on Tuesdays.
3. Have you ever met any of your blog readers?
A couple of years ago I met one of my readers, which was really fun. Many of my readers and I communicate all the time off of this blog, but because we live so far apart, we haven’t met in person (yet!).
4. How many states have you visited?
Traveling throughout the U.S. is one thing that I really need to do more of. My list of states isn’t that extensive, unfortunately:
Oregon (Portland), Washington (Seattle), Nevada (Las Vegas and Reno), Hawaii (Oahu), Florida (Miami and Orlando), Connecticut, Massachusetts, Michigan (Niles), Indiana (South Bend), Illinois (Chicago). I’m visiting Hawaii again in April, and I CANNOT wait!
5. What did you have for lunch yesterday?
I had the best lunch yesterday! Shrimp, asparagus, a bit of guacamole, on a bed of spinach. I love the combo of guac and shrimp!
6. How many different places have you lived in?
Not many. I was born and raised in San Jose, CA which is where I still live. I did move to San Francisco (about an hour north), and lived there for a little over 3 years.
7. What’s your favorite color?
8. Do you have any pets?
I have the best dog in the world – Sofi, who has a blog, btw. She’ a Shichon (Shi Tzu/Bichon mix), and she adds joy to my life every single day!
9. What would your ideal job be?
Although I still love teaching, more and more I’m drawn to something in the health/fitness world. I’m exploring options around personal training/nutrition coach/wellness coach/health educator.
10. Do you have any tattoos?
Yes, I have three of them, one of which I’d really like to get removed someday.
Now it’s your turn to answer the questions! And also be sure to go back to Sarah’s blog and leave a link to your FMM post in the comments! I really encourage you to comment on as many people’s posts as you can – I’ve met some fantastic people through FMM. You never know who you’ll meet today.
