Wedneday Words for Weight Loss

It is time for Wednesday Words for Weight Loss.
I look forward every week to see what kind of questions
Patrice will come up with. It is always a nice surprise and
makes me think of things I haven't thought of in years.

1. I've heard it said that there are two body types when weight is gained? Some are like an apple with a big gain in the middle and others are like a pear with a larger lower region. What kind of fruit are you? :)

Until I reached 40 I wouldn't have said either, but now in my 50s I have to say
I am more like a pear. What kind of fruit am I? How about a nut, maybe a walnut. :)

2. Have you ever joined an exercise studio or gym?

When I first saw this question, I thought no I never have and then I remembered
after I had our first baby and Jazzersise was all the rage, I got a cute little outfit
and went one time, the only time. I have never been so sore in my life and I really couldn't move. So that was it, a gym flunky.

3. What was your favorite vacation ever?

Well there are two, my husband's company that he worked for had a office in Grant Michigan. He was having to work there so we only had three kids then, we flew to Grand Rapids, and the kids and I stayed in a hotel and he would go to work and then when he would get home in the evening we explored Grand Rapids.
After that week was up we rented a car and went all over Michigan. We even made it up to the upper peninsula and went to Mackinac Island. We went to the
Grand Hotel and I just loved it.
My other favorite vacation, was we took our travel trailer and went from here to Oklahoma and my husband had did a trip planner so we saw something every 100 miles. We saw the most amazing things. My husband had never seen the Grand Canyon and I love watching the shock on his face when he first saw it.
We had to stay there 2 days because he was just so mesmerized by it.

4. Is there a famous person you'd like to be like?

Hands down, Harper Lee. She wrote the best book I have ever read and when
I read To Kill a Mockingbird, I just sit in awe at her writing style. I love the way
she uses her syntax and when you read you are Scout. No matter how many times I get so caught up in the story and forget to pay attention to the writing.
Well, also J.K. Rowling just because she is an invisible writer and I want to be
that kind of writer.

5. What's your favorite way to have coffee? If you don't drink coffee, then tell me about another beverage you like.

I like coffee hot or cold and I like tea. But only herbal tea. I love, love herbal tea
and I love growing my own things to make my own tea. I am a social drinker,
and eater, whatever you are eating or drinking I am good with it.

Thanks again to Patrice for taking the time to put together these questions and stop by and visit Everyday Rurality.

  7. I'm pretty much a 'gym flunky' too! That was too cute! Loved your answers!

  8. I am a far anyway! I used to be a gym rat...2 hours a day, yikes! But now, a flunky. I want to commit to yoga! I love Bar Harbor, Maine and want to go back very badly. I would like to be Madeleine L'Engle...she's an awesome writer and woman. I love Cafe au Lait. I'm a Starbucks girl 'cuz my son works there and I get great coffee through him!

    I love these post and learning more about you!

  9. You know, I think those are my two favorite vacations, too. :-)

  10. Since my last doctor's visit...a year ago, I have lost fourteen pounds...must have been my boots!

  11. Well, hello there! I am always on a diet, and am always blowing my diet with all the great things I bake!! Lol. But I try to eat lots and lots of fruits and veggies. Right now I am starving...I had a banana and 2 clementines for breakfast. Next I'm going to have an apple. I also have 2 more clementines, another apple, and another banana here at my desk as backup, should I need them. That's my diet secret - keep fruit handy!!! Lol. And try not to even look at the junk food!!!


Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
Think of this as coming onto my porch and having
