A welcome, a workout and a survey


First and foremost- welcome to Planks and Planes. At this point I should say hi to my only two readers at this point- my husband and best friend! I am really looking forward to documenting all of my workouts, trips and races on the blog for everyone to enjoy.


Here is Monday night’s bootcamp workout. Complete 25 reps of each exercise. Completing the workout will give you an all over body workout!

4 X 4

Fitness Survey 

  • What did you eat for breakfast?

A banana with peanut butter and a skinny latte.

  • How much water do you drink a day?

I try to drink at least 96 oz/day. When I work out I drink at least 128 oz/day.

  • What is your current favorite workout?

Running! Just cannot beat the way I feel after a good run whether 3 or 13 miles!

  • How many calories do you eat a day?

I have no idea as I do not count calories.

  • What are your favorite healthy snacks?

Banana and peanut butter, an apple and string cheese, popcorn, veggies and hummus, hard boiled eggs.

  • What do you usually eat for lunch?

Since I go out pretty regularly for lunch with my company I usually eat salads or fish. When I am doing lunch solo, I tend to eat whole wheat chicken or turkey sandwiches.

  • What is your favorite body part to strength train?

Absolutely Abs!!!

  • What is your least favorite body part to strength train?


  • What are your “bad” food cravings?

My favorite way to indulge a little (especially after a long run) will always be ice cream.

  • Do you take vitamins or supplements?

Yes! I take both.

  • How often do you eat out?

It varies in regards to my lunch meeting schedule. Sometimes I can eat out 5x in one week while other times I can go almost two weeks without eating out.

  • Do you eat fast food?

I rarely eat at fast food chains unless it is to get a diet coke. If you count Chipotle and Subway though then yes quite often because those are two of my favorites.

  • Who is your biggest supporter?

My husband.

  • Do you have a gym membership?

Yes but since I teach at the gym, my membership is free which is a great perk.

  • How many hours of sleep do you get a night?

I aim to get at least 7 but since I often wake up very tired, I can’t wait to see how many hours I am actually seeing when I start using the fitbit.

  • Do you have a “cheat” day?

Nope. After any race I do allow myself to anything my heart desires. Otherwise I try to make healthy decisions as much as possible. Plus I feel much better about eating a cupcake if I ate healthy the rest of the day.. it’s all about moderation.

  • Do you drink alcohol?

Yes. I rarely drink hard liquor but I definitely enjoy a glass or two of wine on the weekends!

  • Do you have a workout buddy?

My husband and I work out 90% of the time together.

  • What is the best thing that has changed about your life since committing to a healthy lifestyle?

Definitely my mindset. My confidence has grown significantly; I have become much more aware and appreciative of my body. I am much more willing to push myself to do and try new things whereas my fear used to hold me back.

  • What was the last healthy thing you did?

Finished the Ragnar Relay.
