11 Questions that Charlie asked me

  1. How did you come up with the name of your blog?

    I had seen it on a website (probably Pinterest or Tumblr) and fell in love with it! Eating clean and training dirty is truely the best way to lose weight. Screw all those fad diets.
  2. How much time do you dedicate to your blog per week?

    Honestly, it all depends. I aim to update it at least once a week with a weigh-in, but I usually end up writing a blog post about two or three times each week.

  3. What is your favorite color and thing that you own of that color?

    I love the color blue! All shades are gorgeous. And my favorite thing that is blue? This baby...

  4. Do you perfer high heels, flats, or shoes you exercise in? Flats... no competition.
  5. What did you eat for dinner last night?

    My housemate made Chicken Enchiladas and they were delish!
  6. Who are your three best friends?

    Ugh, I hate this question because I feel like I always have to leave someone out. I have so many fabulous friends, but if I had to narrow it down to only three, I would go with Jessica (my sister), Emily (my old roommate) and Brielle (my current roommate).
  7. What brand of shampoo and conditioner do you use?

    (Disclaimer: I am a broke college student) Suave.
  8. Did you go to prom and if so, what did you wear?

    Sadly, I did not go to prom. I was homeschooled. :(
  9. Who is your style icon?

    Hmm, I don't really have one. Can a store count as a style icon? If it can, then it would definitely be Maurice's. Everything they have is so cute!
  10. If you were at Starbucks, what would you order?

    A grande peppermint mocha!
  11. Where is your number one pick of vacation (if money was not a factor)?

    Paris! The day that I get to see the Eiffel Tower will be one of the most exciting days of my life!!
