Liebster Award



Back to working out, is one of the most amazing things in the world.    Getting nominated by a fellow blogger and best friend for the Liebster Award comes in a close second for sure!!!

Amelia, is my best friend from high school.   And she is the most fashion savvy and creative person that I know.  Her blog is truly awesome with all the things that can save you money and make EVERYTHING look amazing.  Check it out you won’t be disappointed at all!!

If you are a little unfamiliar with the Liebster award it is an award that is passed from blogger to blogger. It’s a good way to get to know new bloggers and spread the love…because as we all know networking is key to almost anything! Part of the Liebster award is answering a few questions, so here goes. (yes I stole this part from Amelia, love you girl!)

1) Thank and link the person that nominated you
2) Answer the 11 questions asked by the person that nominated you
3) Nominate 5-11 blogs with under 200 followers and link them ( Some are close to 200 and I love your blog so I chose you)
4) Create 11 new questions for the people you nominate to answer
5) Notify your nominees via social media

My 11 Questions:

1.) what is your blog about?

My blog is about my fight to beat a disease I have.   I was diagnosed with lupus and RA, some time ago.   Both of these diseases are auto immune diseases, so basically my immune system is broken and attacks me instead of illnesses.   I am fighting this with exercise and food.  Back to the basics!!
2.) What made you start a blog?

The biggest thing that made me start this blog, was the idea that my story was actually helping and inspiring others.   So instead of being ashamed and embarrassed about what was happening to me, I decided to share and not only has it helped me but others as well.  That’s the best part!!
3.) What is your favorite color?

Purple.  Irony of my favorite color, is that purple represents lupus awareness.   Purple has been my favorite color for as long as I remember, but the irony that it represents the awareness of the disease I have is amazing!
4.) If you could splurge on one thing without any guilt or worry of the cost what would it be?

hehehe……racing or race gear…..or work out clothes (you can never have enough of them!)
5.)Morning or Night person?

Both, I love my morning workouts and love my night time workouts 🙂 can’t pick just one
6.) What is the most listened to song on your playlist?

Korn- Narcissitic Cannibal (love running to this song)

7.)Name one thing that makes you unique you?

My don’t give attitude and fearless need to beat the disease I have.
8.)What is your dream job?

Working on that ironically.   I have two dream jobs:  1)patent attorney, in school now so that one is a work in progress 2) sponsored athlete, it would be amazing to be able to do the one thing I love for a living, racing.
9.) What is your favorite day in your life so far?

I can’t pick just one.  But every day that I don’t let lupus win is big for me.   Not returning to the lifestyle of not moving and being depressed about is something I never want to experience.   Any day I beat this disease is the best.
10.) Where is your favorite place to vacation?

Well Montana is gorgeous.  But will making my first trip to Jamaica here in May for my little brother’s wedding, and pretty sure that is going to rank up on the list of places.
11.) Who is someone you look up to (real or fictional)?

My mom, she is an amazing individual who is fighting the same disease as me.  She doesn’t let the fact that she has it get her down, and has more fight in her than anyone I know.  She will fight for what she loves and do anything for the people she loves.
