Answers to the Questions I was asked:

What does a ‘healthy lifestyle’ mean to you?
To me a healthy lifestyle means balance  Balancing work and play  Not going to extremes.  Also eating healthy, non-processed foods, exercising but not to extremes and really enjoying life
What does your ‘healthy lifestyle’ consist of? 
I’m still working at my healthy lifestyle  I am trying to find balance between work, home, exercise, fun, writing/blogging, and being social  I really need to organize my home more but I am trying to workout more so I have let some things go.  I also have been writing more and notice I am not cooking as much as I used to.
What are your current eating habits?
Well, since the new year I am trying to be better at eating “real” foods.  Less processed foods, less simple carbs, etc.  I try to buy organic when possible.  I find that BJ’s has some affordable products.  Also learning which foods you should really buy organic and which ones don’t need to be
What do you wish to achieve or learn more about being healthy?
I would really like to let go of all my issues and thoughts around weight and obsessing over the scale and food  I want to just focus on being healthy, feeling good in my own skin, being a healthy weight and feeling good about myself
Why do/don’t you want to be ‘healthy’? and what is are the constraints of being ‘healthy’?
I think being healthy is physical, mental and spiritual.  I need to be aware of what I am feeding not only my physical body but my mind and spirit as well.  It can be music, negative thoughts, trash tv, they can all affect a healthy person  I think being grateful on a daily basis, prayer and meditation are all a part of being healthy as well  Also, exercising can be good for mental health
Last cheeky question: What do you like or don’t like about my blog and what would you like to see more of, or improvement on? 
I really enjoy your blog.  I like how you have a combination of all different aspects of health.  I just started following so I’m not sure what else I would like to see, but I really enjoy it.


Given the recent passing of David Bowie and Glenn Frey (from the Eagles) I want to focus on music.  Also just because I love music.  I wasn’t a huge fan of either, not that I didn’t like them, I think my taste just differs a bit.  Anyways, here are my questions:

1.  What music/musician do you find most influential in your life and why? 
2.  Do you have a favorite song and why?
3.  If you could meet one artist (dead or alive) who would it be and why?
4.  What current song would describe your life today?
5  What is a song you would consider timeless?
6  Do you have a favorite workout song?  Or a song that motivates you in some way?

I may have to blog about these myself!  Thank you again for the nomination and I look forward to seeing everyone’s post!

  1. Thanks Ginger! You’re too sweet. Actually, I don’t participate in blogging awards. But if you give me one of your favorite quotes, I’ll post it and link back to your blog. Thanks again!


  2. I’m actually on vacation right now, trying to avoid a snow storm, so I’m going to do this in your comments, if you don’t mind!
    1. What music/musician do you find most influential in your life and why? Michael Jackson, because he’s one of the first musicians I can say I became a fan of, even as a child. His music is so diverse, and you can’t help but dance!
    2. Do you have a favorite song and why? I don’t know if its my favorite song, but “Sweet Baby James” is up there on my list, because my mother used to sing it to me as a child.
    3. If you could meet one artist (dead or alive) who would it be and why? Whitney Houston, because I’d love to have met her at the height of her talent, and maybe get to the heart of what was going on in her personal life.
    4. What current song would describe your life today? “Harder Better Faster Stronger,” By Daft Punk. Even the Kanye version might work. It’s just the idea, really.
    5 What is a song you would consider timeless? Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely” is completely timeless. It’ll always be a great song for a wedding reception.
    6 Do you have a favorite workout song? Or a song that motivates you in some way? I don’t have a fave workout song, but Shakira’s song from the South African world cup is one of my favorite songs to motivate me when working out. Otherwise, African music in general from my study abroad is always great to work out to.

      1. Are you kidding? I love learning about other cultures. I love that my son can understand Spanish fluently (even if he is part Cape Verdian and not doing so great in Honors Spanish 4) I try to learn a lot of the songs. I was on a mission for a bit to learn to sing all these songs in Spanish but that didn’t last. lol I’ve got one song down!
