~This or That~

Paige at Your Trainer Paige posted a great post on Friday titled This or That Health and Fitness Edition. I have to say it was a super awesome post... so I decided to join in! If you have a blog you should post a THIS OR THAT as well. Don't forget to mention Paige in your blog and leave me a comment below... I'd love to stop by your blog and see how we compare! =)
Here goes...
1. Run/workout in the heat and humidity or freezing temps and snow?
I would much rather have the heat. We don't have snow where we are (nearby) so I really can't give an honest answer on this one! =) Sunny is really all I know.
2. Have washboard abs or flat abs?
Flat abs!
3. Dr. Oz or The Doctors?
The Doctors. I like their segments a lot better.
4. Cardio or strength?
Strength. I HATE cardio...
5. Cravings: Protein or carbs?
Proteins... I love my shakes, Greek yogurt, and eggs!
6. Jillian Michaels or Bob Harper?
Bob Harper! I am not a fan of Jillian's approach! ;-)
7. Frozen Yogurt or Ice Cream?
Ice cream. Ice cream really is my favorite food!!
8. To train: Upper body or Lower body?
I used to be a lower body junkie, but recently I have seen great results training my upper body. I have to say this one is a tie.
9. Protein powder or food with protein?
Powder! I love something quick and nutritious!
10. Lunges or squats?
Squats!! Although... I had a trainer once tell me the butt I wanted would be found with both lunges and squats! Keep it classic =)
11. Sweet or salty?
sweet tooth all the way!!
12. Workout attire: cute or comfy?
CUTE! I love my tees with quotes (if you haven't noticed) and rhinestones on my gloves!
13. Body Pump or Heavy lifting?
Heavy lifting. I have always been small so I have to lift heavy to see results.
14. Yoga or Pilates?
Both. I love yoga to unwind and for a good stretch BUT I love a great Pilates class.
15. Nike or Adidas?
If we were going for looks... NIKE! BUT I have to say I have had the best of luck with Reebok Real Flex and my Asics 2170s.
16. Running on the treadmill or outdoors?
awwwwwh! do I have to run? ;-) TREADMILL!
17. Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s?
If I had a Whole Foods near me I bet I would say Whole Foods. I love Sprouts Farmers Market and from what I understand they are similar.
18. Summer or Winter Olympics? 
19. Exercises classes or Exercise videos?
Classes, Classes, Classes!! I love building relationships. I love spin class, Pilates, and Yoga at the gym. I do have a few DVDs, but I find that I do better if there is a set time to attend a class. Besides.. you wouldn't want to be late and have to take the broken bike up in the front ;-)
20. Steamed veggies or roasted veggies? 
Roasted! Nick is a grill master and I love when he grills veggies on our BBQ!

What do you prefer?
Don't forget to let me know if you joined in!!


  1. Definitely do both squats & lunges for a nice butt!! =) They target different parts of the glutes.

    1. Perfect combo.
      My relationship with my leg workout is a love-hate =)

  2. Definitely did this one a few days back! Love surveys, they remind of those email one's everyone used to send around.
