Never Have I Ever…Food and Fitness Edition!!

maxresdefault

Remember the game “Never Have I Ever?”

It brings me back to my tween days and birthday parties…

Never have I ever kissed a boy on the lips! Never have I ever held hands during a movie!

Well, those days are long gone, but this game is still a fun one to bring back around!

Since we are all about the wicked healthiness over here, let’s make it less about holding hands and kissing and more about WORKING OUT AND EATING!

Please play along in the comments, people! Don’t be shy. 😉

Never Have I Ever…

Run a marathon.

I really like training for something (and running, which is important) and this is something that’s on my radar. I’m a little scared, though. Well, more than a little. I have my doubts about whether or not I can do it and whether or not I want to devote just about every exercise second to running. I would really try and stick to my strength training too, but do I have the time? Marathoners out there, help me out.

Done a fitness competition

Guys, I almost signed up for one in April. The only thing holding me back was cost. Those things sure can get expensive! The tan, the bling, the shoes…not typically my thing but hey, I could play it up! I love weight training and I actually enjoy planning out my meals and nutrition – even if it means being strict with what I eat and when. I kinda view it as a science experiment to see how my body responds? Weird, I know. This is definitely on my bucket list – I think it would be a great challenge and fun experience!

Taken a cooking class

Taking a cooking class seems like so much fun. I’d love to do this as a date night. Even though Dan’s cooking pretty much starts and ends with mac and cheese and eggs, I think he’d be up for it! The whole thing just sounds playful and silly. Well, I guess playful wouldn’t necessarily be a good thing if knives and fingers are involved. Maybe I should take it a bit more seriously.

Hired a trainer

I would like to, and am definitely considering doing so in the months before my wedding!

Done a juice cleanse

I see a lot of juice cleanse buzz around the blog world…but no. I may be missing out on something great here, but still no. Plus, I am too considerate of other people to expect them to deal with me when I haven’t chewed anything all day. I do have a juicer, though. I really should use that puppy.

Participated in a fun run

Color run, foam run, mud run – haven’t done any of these. Am I missing out?

Hosted a dinner party

I love to cook for people, and sure, I’ve had friends over for dinner, but not in an official “this is a dinner party” way where I show that I can make things match and have nice finishing touches and make an evening out of a meal and all that. I’m up to the task!

Eaten a smoothie for a meal

See “juice cleanse” above. Smoothie = snack.

Bought workout clothes at full price

I purchased a pair of running leggings at Target once. They weren’t on sale. I returned them the next day out of the sheer guilt and horror and hit up TJ Maxx to buy less expensive ones. I’m a little crazy like that. I just can’t wrap my head around paying full price!

Left a restaurant with leftovers

All right, maybe I have once or twice – maybe – but if I have, I can’t remember. I always eat everything on my plate. My appetite is ridiculous. I get portioning out leftovers if you’re making food at home, or leaving some Chinese take out for the next day, but in a restaurant? I’m not saving any for later…No food left behind!

I’ll stop there, even though I’m having tons of fun…I know you all have lives to lead and things to do! Sigh.

Hope you enjoyed this fun little game, friends! Do you think I’m wacko? I’ll take both as a compliment.

Thanks again to Amanda for the opportunity to think out loud today!

 

Wicked Healthy Wonderings:

Play along! Never have I ever….

Also, tell me if I’m missing out on any of the above. I’m open.

PS. Can I run a marathon?

    Love this!! I have only run 2 races and they were both fun races so I don’t know if you can actually call them races…:) Never have I ever had pb and jelly together. Never have I ever used the stairmaster. I feel you on those leftovers! 😉

    This is a really nifty blog post idea! Never have I ever eaten/drank a smoothie for a meal either and I’m SO glad you agree that those are snacks. Not meals. Seriously.

    I want to host dinner parties as well. Especially after I finally move in with my fiance this Summer.

    This was so cute! I can never imagine running a marathon. I’m still trying to figure out how to run a mile!

    Love this idea to make a game out of it! Fun runs are so…FUN! Juicing eh not so much fun haha. I’m actually training for my first fitness competition in August. So much hard work but I feel so strong and proud of myself. You should definitely give it a try! Love the post!

    Fun runs are great! You should do one!
    I have a crazy appetite as well!

    Teehee. Right there with you, except I have run a marathon, left a resto with left overs (but very rarely), and I have hired a trainger (cough). But otherwise? Who the balls can have a smoothie for a meal? I’ve never understood that.

    Ruthieee you need to take a cooking class!! If Dan doesn’t want to, I’ll do it with you! Hehe. They’re fun, especially if you get to eat your creations afterwards :). I’ve never run a marathon, either…but I don’t love running as much as I want to…a 4-mile run just about gets me!

    Girl we are such twins! I have a post going up this week about how sometimes goals have a time and place lol

    How fun! I’m with you on the smoothie as a snack thing. No way. You can definitely run a marathon and do a fitness competition, but definitely not within the same time frame. As a strength and conditioning coach, I can tell you running a marathon is a complete contraindication of fitness comp training. I’d say do your fitness comp first, then take a year to train for a marathon (while still strength training for endurance and power 2-3 times per week 🙂

    Definitely no to marathons and juice cleanses. I’m still in the baby stages of running and I couldn’t imagine running that far, and while I think that juices are great to ADD to your diet, I don’t think they should replace real food. I have done the smoothie for a meal thing, though, and it’s fantastic. It all depends on what you pack in there. Sometimes I find them more filling than food, food.

    Hehe, this was a fun post! Good on you for considering the bikini competition thing…I just can’t be too restrictive with my diet; I guess I feel like I’d be missing out on too much!

    You can definitely run a marathon! I haven’t. But don’t let that stop you 🙂

    Ooh I love this-I might fill it out. You could totally run a marathon. You probably wouldn’t do as much strength training though. You could try to balance it but when I train running has to come first above all other activities, especially as it gets closer to the race and my mileage is high and I’m sore/don’t want to get hurt!

    I did a juice cleanse once (3 days) you are not missing out! You pretty much can’t workout (unless it’s super light) without eating some extra food either! Also kudos for not buying full price workout gear.
