Tag I’m it!

22 Feb

Melissa from Lift.Teach.Run nominated me for this “Liebster Award”. The whole things is like a chain letter that 1- helps you get more followers and 2- helps you learn a bit about your favorite newbie bloggers! (or so it seems from the research I’ve done!) Fingers crossed that I can get some more followers because I loooove talking to ya people!

Rules: If you’re tagged, you must post 11 random things about you, then answer the 11 questions I posted! THEN tag 11 more bloggers and do the same!! Have fun!


First- 11 random things about me

6. If I could make one food paleo/healthy it would be cinnamon toast crunch
7. I wear purple more than any other color.
8. If I could choose a new career, I would pick an animal rescuer (is that a real job?) or a CrossFit trainer/box owner/personal trainer. or I would focus solely on fighting childhood obesity.

      Katie hogan my fave crossfitter uses musclepharm brand so I checked it out and it sounded like a quality company with good research backing….turns out its delicious too! I bought blue raspberry and it was ok, but raspberry lemonade came as a sample and its awesome! Tastes like crystal light kinda? I add a little more water to make it less sweet. I definitely noticed more energy during my 6am WOD today!
