Two lovely ladies created #AskAwayFriday…the wonderful Penny from The Real Housewife of Caroline County and Amber from Bold Fab Mom!!
1. With Valentines day right around the corner…what kind of date night would you like to plan with the hubby?
2. What is something that you look forward to doing with your kids when they are older, like tween/teen age?
Playing sports ~ running the football, diving for volleyballs, hitting the tennis balls, even racing, I can’t wait until they’re older. I’m not a believer that kids should win for their self-esteem. Yet, it still sucks to win because you’re four times their age. I want true competition. I want them to beat me because they are just plain better!
3. Who is someone in your life that has influenced you into becoming the woman that you are and why?
There’s no specific person. I would say all of the women in my life have made me the woman I am in one way or another. I will say my fourth grade teacher really inspired my desire to learn and study like no other. Otherwise, there were many woman who shaped me, whether through positive or negative influence.
4. Do you have a favorite recipe from your childhood, that you now make for your family?
Nope. I don’t remember any recipe before my mother remarried and my stepfather refused to share any recipes with me. He did share one of the recipes with my sister before he passed away, which I don’t know.
Nope. We read anything and everything. I don’t remember a particular tale from my childhood that I read.
6. Do you have a favorite book that you will read over and over?
Nope. I’m not sure why, but I rarely reread books, even if it were the only book I had. I honestly can’t remember one book I’ve read from cover to cover twice.
7. Do you have a dream that you have yet to accomplish? What is it?
Passing the bar. When I got pregnant with my eldest, I was in law school. I took the bar and missed passing by 18 points (passing score was 1430). Not passing was the first thing that I put my mind to that I have NOT accomplished! It’s burned into my mind and I have yet to pass. I guess I have to take it again to get there.
8. What kind of tunes do you have rockin your playlist now?
Goodness, it keeps on coming. I feel like I’m disappointing you since I can’t be affirmative with my answers. I don’t have a playlist really. On Pandora, I’ve been listening to the Beyonce station because I like the Drunk in Love song. I like a wide variety of music, but I rarely listen to music radio. I’m more of a talk/political radio type of gal.
9. Do you prefer working out in a gym or at home?
I prefer a gym with a friend or at home alone. I get bored quickly working out in the gym alone. Occasionally, if I go play basketball or take a class, I’ll stay engaged, but if I don’t have a friend by my side, I don’t push myself. I think about how much I’d rather not be in front of all these people and be home instead. Plus, I love my DVDs, which I watch in accompaniment to my favorite shows.
10. What made you decide to become a coach with Beachbody? What would you say to someone interested in making an income from it?
I had major success with P90x and Insanity, losing 40 pounds in 4 months with very little dietary changes. Then someone told me that I could be a rep and make money from just talking about my success. And it worked. I love the programs and the supplements which makes things very easy to gush about.
If you wanted to make an income from it, I would say be honest and stay on your workout game. You don’t need to use a bunch of Beachbody products, you just need one that has helped YOU and you can talk about realistically. It’s super easy and it really helps me with my spending cash. Others do MUCH more with it. The sky is the limit with free trips, bonuses and meeting all of the personalities (Shaun T is my absolute favorite!)
