I have to say it becoming more difficult to come up with fun facts and questions. If anyone has question suggestions for next week please feel free to share. Now on to today’s questions:
1. What is your favorite form of exercise if you could only pick one form? This changes for me with time. Recently my favorite has been strength training. I suppose this has become more important as I get older since “they” say we lose a pound of muscle mass every year after 40. Comforting thought no? I believe strength training keeps that from happening. Not to mention strength training makes me feel strong and more able to do everyday things.
2. Would you ever consider plastic surgery and if so do you know what you would have done? This is one that I have gone back and forth on. I used to dye my hair (to cover the grey) but gave that up about a year and half ago because of the toxic nature of dye. However when I was coloring my hair I thought maybe a face lift would be in my future. Now that I have a few “distinguished” strands of grey I think I am more likely to just age gracefully. Fortunately my face has not “gone south” yet. When it does the vanity may just kick in and cause me to run to the plastic surgeon. I hope I can resist the urge but I don’t know that I am that centered, LOL.
3. Where do you want to be and what do you want to be doing in 10 years? I hope that Dan will be retired in 10 years and we will be able to enjoy being together 24/7. If that is the case we may be living part time somewhere in Italy. In my perfect world we would go between our current home and Italy (most likely Tuscany). The universe has a way of throwing curve balls though so we will see what it brings between now and then. But that is the plan at the moment.
Okay how about you? What do you think, I would love to know. ;-)
Lunch at Teavolve:
Dan Sr. met Dan Jr. for lunch today on the way back from a meeting in Rockville (around DC for those that aren’t local). They ended up meeting in Canton (an old but now trendy neighborhood in Baltimore on the water). This is the second time they have met at Teavolve for lunch. It is an acceptable place for a vegan and omnivore to get together. For those of you that haven’t been to Teavolve here is the menu.
Dan (my hubby) chose the Asian salad with tofu, edamame, and carrot (pictured above). While there weren’t an abundance of vegan selections tofu and edamame always works. Dan does such a great job of staying reasonably healthy even when I am not there. ;-) Dan is a tougher critic than I am and he enjoyed his salad.
FYI I have reorganized the links on the left side of the blog. The original list has been split into three smaller lists as follows: health and nutrition, food and other “stuff”. Some of you were more difficult to categorize than others. Those blogs that are heavy on exercise are in the health category. However I can imagine exercise needing its own category at some point soon. If you are looking for any blogs and can’t find them let me know and I will tell you where I have categorized them.
Since it is Friday I spent my day doing my usual errands. It was a busy day and thankfully a bit cooler than it has been though the humidity was up.
I have been feeling the lure of the weights today much more than normal. I think the new dumbbells are going to be great for my workouts. They seemed to have sparked a renewed love of strength training. Sometimes it seems all I need it a new piece of exercise equipment to get my blood pumping again. Now hopefully I can get Dan interested too. Wish me luck; this may be a harder sell. ;-)
I need to check with Dan but he may not have to work this weekend. That is my guess based on his hours this week. If I am right and the weather holds up I may try to convince him to have a little fun this weekend. Do you have anything fun planned for the weekend?
Talk to you later when I come back with a dinner update. Happy Friday! I hope everyone has a great weekend.
