I will say that as soon as read their responses (and mopped up my tea as I had spewed it out from laughing so effing hard) I knew I had to partake. I mean who doesn't LOVE bloggy awards that involve questionnaires and surveys in which one is invited to #humblebraggyshare.
On to my responses to the
invasive questions errrrm I mean MilfyAward
1) What is my current health-related goal?
Hmmm. Be even more Fabulous. I think BMI is bullshit. Maybe
cause BMI tells me I am ginormous and obsese. I generally don't need any help
in the 'feel bad about my arse' department.... scuse me while I reach for a
biccie to go with my tea...I may not really get too crazy on this goal. I want
to be stronger, smarter, eat better...and yes. Lose at least 10, maybe 20
pounds. I said this goal OUT LOUD to my doc and she didn't like that number.
She tells me I am healthy and am "too worried" aobut my weight.
Considering I like food, wine, and bread there might not be any
"hydroxycut" type losses coming anytime soon. So my doc hasnothing to
Oh though I have given up "sugar" - that white
processed stuff. And have not had any in a month! I still have honey or agave
syrup sometimes in my tea.
2) What is my biggest irrational fear?
Being eaten by a snake (I live in a place that only has garter snakes).
Being mauled by a grizzly (I do trail run and we do have bear sightings - this might not be as irrational.
Oh what the hell. I might as well admit this...i sometimes jump into bed...if i get to close something may reach out and grab me. (I have done this since childhood.)
3) Do I enjoy wrapping presents?
I prefer unwrapping pressies. However, I really do love wrapping presents. I strive to wrap as beautifully as my mum or grandma. They have perfect technique. But, I do a pretty good job. When i get my shit together and get the deed done.
4) What is my favorite cross training activity?
What is cross training? I should research this further.
If you want a really REALLY good laugh...go to this link and scroll down to the cross training question HERE.
5) If you came to visit me, what would we do?
Sip tea, gulp wine, laugh and tell wholly inappropriate jokes and stories. And. Swear. A Lot!
6) I have two weeks off work and two round trip plane
tickets to anywhere. Where would I go and who would I take?
I'd go to England. Leeds, Manchester and London. and do a lot of #5 with Cath, Jane and Kirsty.
7) What’s the most embarrassing thing to happen to me during
a run or a race?
hmmm. Would taking a poop less than a kilometre before the finish line count? Would telling you that it was raining/sleeting and the tissues I had in my pocket were drenched ...so I used leaves make it sound even more mortifying? Or should I add that it was in a spot that there was about two trees. And, I am pretty sure the entire finish line area may have seen me. I hate that I sometimes have gut issues.
I did have a personal best that day ...just sayin.
8) Three best days of my life? Or at least the top three
that come to mind.
I am not really sure. Wow.
A couple years ago I could have answered this. Now. Not so much.
The best three days...
Getting lost in London and finding parts of myself I thought I had
Stumbling an advert for a flatmate in Canberra.
The day my nephews and niece called my name for the first time.
9) Okay, so I HAVE to eat a fast food meal. Which restaurant
would I choose and what do I order?
Mucho Burrito. Tastes AWESOME and is fresh tasty and has visible veggies.
IF I was in America...I might really like to try In N Out, I have eaten there once. I thought it was a good burger.
10) Have I ever met a celebrity?
I have met (in passing or bumped into litterally) Dave Navarro, Robert Duvall. Sat next to David Wenham at a movie premier then saw him a few times at my local coffee shop when I loved in Melbourne. I have spoke to Prime Ministers and former PMs due to my work in public relations. I have seend and been in the room with hundreds of elite athletes (olympic or otherwise) which was kind of cool. Volunteering at the official media centre for the olympics is a neat job. Guess it depends on how you define celebrity. I tend to think society is obsessed with fame and celebrity. And really...because you make movies or on the telly you should be fanned over?
11) Share a pic of yourself in non-workout clothes
Here is three. One is at a running event. One is with a running medal and some nuun. I seriously need to get a life. I had to look hard for these pics.
12) If I could choose to have a “do over” and switch
careers, what would I choose and why?
I think that maybe all those years ago when my mom's boss told me not to go to law school, i might have ignored him and went.
I am curretly looking for a job. Any of you tweeps got some leads? I would like a job that might get me some dough rather quickly, but would ot require me to .... um ... get my hands dirty.
13) If I won an Olympic Gold Medal, how do I think I would
I recall practically puking when done some figure skating programs. But I do have a habit of having a HughJass smile on my face after any physical exersion. Am also know for tearing up when emotional So bawling, with my big smile immediately post-event I'd no doubt be snivelling and grinning. And looking for my mum. Which upon seeing her would make me cry harder. Oh. And trying not to say Holy F*ck on live telly!
14) What did I want for Christmas?
A new car. A new job. However, I did get some lovely lippie,socks, bath salts and wine cups and a beautiful handmade scarf.
15) What skills do I lack?
A civil tongue.
I am thinking I was born without an ability to mute the 'inside voice'.
