What’s your primary workout?
My primary workout is running right now. I love doing bootcamps but I have my first half marathon in 2 weeks so I’m running every chance I get.

How long have you been working out?
This is my new years resolution. I was tired of being tired so I decided to get my butt in gear. I had no idea that fitness would become such an important part of my life!

How often do you work out?
I try to get a workout in 5x a week. Realistically it doesn’t always happen. I’m a single mom of an active 9 yr old. I’ve been spotted planking andmindy2 running at my son’s football practices. Sometimes we have to be creative right? I figure if I don’t get a workout, the most important thing I can do is forgive myself and move forward.

What’s your favorite outfit to Sweat Pink in?
My capris and a tank but I’m thinking it may be time to get brave and get a running skirt!

What’s your favorite healthy snack and meal?
My favorite healthy snack is celery with a little cream cheese on it. My favorite healthy meal is a filet mignon if it’s my red meat day. I also love chicken with portabella mushrooms.

If you could have one cheat day where nothing counted against you, what would you eat and do?
I would definitely get cheese fries and a Burger with bacon from Outback! Yum! And I would probably go to a fair and have some yummy fried dough… yep I’m definitely not cured of the bad eating lol!

What is your biggest motivation to staying fit?
My son is so proud of my hard work. That’s the neatest thing! Hearing him tell his friends at school that his mom is a runner was the best!!!

Any advice for the beginners out there?
You can do it! Stick with it!!! Its addictive! Give it six weeks and you’ll see!

What’s your favorite thing about blogging?
I blog when something is on my mind. My favorite thing is when someone connects to something I have written.

How do you hope to inspire people?
I am just honest. I’m not perfect. I’m not a trainer or a fitness professional. mindy1 I’m just a girl who decided she wanted to get fit 😉 I’m just like you…and if I can do it, why can’t you?
