Friend Makin' Mondays

Friend Makin’ Mondays: Giving the Boys a Chance

Did you know that I can only think of four guys who read my blog?  Oh, apart from Dad and the few who obsessively who read it and never comment, of course.  And one of those guys would have participated in FMM last week, but he sent me a tweet saying that my questions were “a bit girly” for him.  Can you believe that Josh didn’t know how to answer questions about his favorite brand of makeup?! 😉

So this week, Josh provided some of the questions, and I’m thrilled to give the boys an opportunity to jump in on the fun. 😉  

 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 a link at the bottom of this post so we can all see your post. 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.

FMM: Giving the Boys A Chance
1. Who is your pick for the Final Four? 
 I didn’t fill out a bracket this year.  I usually do, but in the last few years my love for college basketball has ceased to exist.  I still love college football.  Just saying.
2. What is your favorite workout/fitness activity? 
I love jogging.  This is a pretty new love, but it’s an intense one that I expect to grow over time.  Just give me a track and my iPod and let me go.
3. Do you have a favorite healthy snack? Something that REALLY hits the
spot? 
I love cucumbers, navel oranges and grilled chicken though I rarely eat chicken as a snack. I’d like some now please…yum..
4. What is your dream car? 
My dream is to, once again, not need a car because I take the subway where I need to go.  😉
5. Have you set any goals for yourself this month? What are they? 
My monthly goal is to do at least 1,000 minutes of cardio.  I succeeded in January and February so I plan on reaching the goal for March then making a more challenging goal for April. 
When you’re done posting, take a few minutes to say hi to Josh at http://youhaveablog.blogspot.com and leave him some love. 

*****Linking up in my comments section seemed to work pretty well last week so let’s try it again this week!  Now it’s time to share your answers!*****

    Hi, Kenz! I'm a new-ish reader.

    1. Who is your pick for the Final Four?
    The King's Speech, Toy Story 3, True Grit, and The Social Network. (And Easy A, if it were nominated.) That was what you meant by Final Four, right?

    2. What is your favorite workout/fitness activity?
    On my own, it's swimming. In a group, it's the class I take with Richard Simmons three times a week. Exercise was never fun for me, outside of a pool… until I met Richard.

    3. Do you have a favorite healthy snack? Something that REALLY hits the
    spot?
    Yes, I love Trader Joe's fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt with a handful of berries. It always feels decadent.

    4. What is your dream car?
    I'm not much for cars. I live in Los Angeles, and we get stuck in them far more often than anyone would wish. So I guess that my dream car has my favorite people in it, and low mpg.

    5. Have you set any goals for yourself this month? What are they?
    I don't have month-specific goals, per se… just the ongoing ones I've set for myself. Aiming for 1400 calories a day, aiming for 60 to 90 minute workouts 6 days a week, aiming for 3 hours of writing per day (outside of blogging.)

    And I kind of thought I was a tomboy, but apparently not.

    Hahahahaa!! Is it wrong that when I read the first question, my first thought was "Survivor or Amazing RAce?". Then I read your answer. Whoops.
