Friend Making Monday!

Before I chime in with my results for week 4, I'm taking a moment to answer some questions that were posed over at All The Weigh as part of Friend Making Monday!

FMM: Giving the Boys A Chance

1. Who is your pick for the Final Four? 
Oh dear, my first hurdle! I'm from the UK, so had to turn to Google to even find out what the Final Four meant! I never really used to watch sport at all (not even UK ones), but that has been changing recently, and I can't even begin to explain why. Perhaps its part of me focussing more on fitness and exercise, who knows! I watched the SuperBowl when that one a few months ago, and that was the first time I'd actually watched any US sports.
But, as the question needs an answer...are there teams from the West Coast of the US? I've only visited once, and only saw California, Oregon and Washington, so anyone from there gets my vote!

2. What is your favorite workout/fitness activity? 
Even though I can't/don't do it at the moment, rowing would have to be my answer. My step-dad used to have a rowing machine when I lived at home, and I would spend 45 minutes on there, singing along to a CD, loving every minute of it. Whenever I can afford a gym membership or move into a larger place, maybe I'll take it up again!

3. Do you have a favorite healthy snack? Something that REALLY hits the
I'm not snacking at the moment, or trying not to at least! I guess the closest I have to healthy snack would be these small sugar-free jellies I found in a local supermarket. They're not healthy per se, but they don't pack any calories and they taste sweet, so I use them to trick my brain into thinking I've had a naughty treat!

4. What is your dream car? 
I've never been a car fanatic, and as I live in London on a student budget I don't need and can't afford one right now anyway! But if money were no'd have to be a Bentley. A lovely old-fashioned one. Or maybe an Aston Martin!

5. Have you set any goals for yourself this month? What are they? 
If I'm to stay on track for my target weight by my target date, I need to try and lose about 12lbs a month, so I guess that's my general target. But I went for my first run on Friday, and I'm kind of itching for another one, so perhaps something running related - lets say to run at least twice a week for the next month (keeping it realistic), and to try and up my distance to three miles a session by the end!
So there we go! Week 4 results coming very soon...


  1. Hi from Canada! I followed over here from *YOU* have a blog?! Lots your answers for today's FMM!

  2. Thank you, from the UK! FMM is such a great idea, and I've found so many great blogs to follow because of it - much easier than trawling through Google trying to find ones that are still alive! How you manage to write 5 I'll never know, but well done!
