2. Do you use mostly pen or pencil to write?

Do the elliptical. I did a cardio class this morning and we did an entire song of squats. I couldn't believe how easy they were--I'm guessing b/c of my regular time on the elliptical. As a bonus, I've got those indentations in my glutes b/c of the miles I've logged on that machine. I had lunch w/the BFF this afternoon and when I said something about it, she pointed out that I'm in far better shape than I was when we met 18 years ago. I've always been thin, but now I'm buff instead of just thin.

1.  What are one or two of your weird idiosyncracies? Little things like not being able to sleep with socks on, etc. 

I dress up for school. Last night one of my classmates asked if I had a fancy job b/c I was always dressed so nice. 

2. Pen or pencil?

PEN

3. What's your latest food obsession/favorite?

Had a shrimp taco for lunch and am making fish tacos for dinner...

4. What's your most favorite form of exercise? Least?

cardio is my fav. strength training--I HATE.

5. How often do you have a garage/tag sale? Is your purpose to declutter or to make money?

Declutter. We're having one this year b/c I have truckloads of toys & the subdivision holds one annually so my workload putting it on consists of setting up tables and putting stickers on the stuff. Easy peasy.

I love these little quizzes!!!

1.  What are one or two of your weird idiosyncracies? Little things like not being able to sleep with socks on, etc. (

Hmmmm, I don't know if this is weird but I can't go to bed without moisturizing my feet!! Dry feet make me crazy! And at work when I finish a project I have to completely clear my desk before I start the new one. Some say I'm just really organized. I think I may be a little OCD!!

2. Do you use mostly pen or pencil to write?

Mostly pen. Even for crossword puzzles.

3. What's your latest food obsession/favorite?

Chopped salads

4. What's your most favorite form of exercise? Least?

Swimming is my favorite and I agree with Savcal about burpees. They are the work of the devil, I tells ya. I actually did start that Facebook squat challenge and am halfway through it!! I am feeling the burn!! I think the key to get through it is to find some really good music and crank it up

5. How often do you have a garage/tag sale? Is your purpose to declutter or to make money?

My church does a flea market one Saturday a month, and I try to do that a couple times a year. We all know each other because it's in the neighborhood. I make most of my money before 7am from the locals!! But I also buy their stuff. I never think of it as a way to make money, it is part declutter and part community fun. The kids play in the playground out back and we have a hot dog truck that parks in the lot and coffee is served inside.

I do the M&M thing, too.  And I save a bite or several of my favorite thing to eat last as well.  It's how DH knows how much I liked whatever he fixed for dinner.

I think I'd enjoy it, but all the kickboxing classes at my gyms are during the day when I can't go ... :(

That stinks. You would probably really like them. Our classes are right after work in our building. Hoping they will continue the entire summer Laughing

1.  What are one or two of your weird idiosyncracies? Little things like not being able to sleep with socks on, etc. Can't share tableware with others.

2. Do you use mostly pen or pencil to write? I detest writing by hand, but when I must, I use a ballpoint pen.

3. What's your latest food obsession/favorite? Barley rusks from Crete.

4. What's your most favorite form of exercise? Least? Walking. Anything involving music and other people.

5. How often do you have a garage/tag sale? Is your purpose to declutter or to make money? Never had one. I just throw stuff out and let people take it from there.

I *do* love squats.   I might stop loving them after 100 in a row or something, but I do love them.   And squats within a ZUMBA song? heaven!
