How do you fit working out into your day?

Like many other people, I schedule it.  I know in my head when I have time to work out.  It takes a little bit of time to make it a habit, but once it is, it will be second nature to have your sneakers waiting for you at the front door.

Do you count calories?

I know approximately how many calories I need and approximately how many are in the foods I consume regularly.  While calorie counting is a great tool for weight loss and weight maintenance, I don’t regularly count calories.  I listen to my hunger pains, I allow myself to indulge every so often, and I listen to my body’s signals when it has had too much or too little.

What are some things on your bucket list?

I think I’ve been doing a good job of crossing off my bucket list lately, so here’s an ever evolving list with things that I’ve done:

  • Run a marathon before I’m 30 – CHECK!  Ran the Pittsburgh Marathon in May 2011
  • Run a half marathon in under 2 hours – CHECK!  1:58 at the Philly Love Run 2015
  • Start my own business and have it be successful
  • Start a family
  • Travel out west – CHECK! Went to Colorado this past summer (2012) still want to do a grand canyon trip though
  • Travel to Italy – CHECK!  Studied abroad in Rome learning about the Mediterranean diet and international nutrition
  • Go back to Italy ;)
  • Get a dog
  • Race a triathlon
  • Visit Napa Valley

Do you prefer breakfast, lunch, or dinner?

BREAKFAST!  Hands down.  I love pancakes and anything with peanut butter!

What’s your favorite workout?

Running and yoga.  I really can’t choose, because it depends on my mood.  But each help me to decompress.
