I've been Liebstered ...

The lovely Liz for Last Chance Training nominated me for an award this week! I've not written my acceptance speech as this post will reveal lots!

Here’s what I have to do:
  1. Write 11 random facts about yourself.
  2. Answer the 11 interview questions you’ve been given by the person who nominated you.
  3. Create 11 new questions.
  4. Nominate 11 bloggers and mention them in your post.
  5. Go and tell the person who nominated you, along with the people you’ve nominated about your post.
So to begin .. 11 random facts about myself.

1.  My first car was a red Gemini SLX ... it was fast!

2.  I do not like bananas .. Banana cake if fine, toasted with butter if you don't mind ...

3.  I was a bank manager before studying to become a PT.   Please do not hold this against me ...

4.  I too, like Liz, love stationery.  One can never have too many pretty notebooks, or diaries, or pens ...

5.  I can cut up a roast chook like nobodies business courtesy of my teenage part time job at KFC ..

6.  I am obsessed with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills .. it could be the sparkles or the shoes
.. or both ...

7.  I keep all my shoes in their shoe boxes, except for the ones I have recently purchased in the US and had no room for the boxes.  But I bought other boxes for them ...

8.  I should make more time to read but then I spend all night awake reading and get no sleep.

9.  I may seem confident and outgoing but I am rather shy and quite happy finding quiet time to myself to recharge

10.  I would love to do an interior design course.  Mr Fit Mum has banned me from watching those shows on TV because he thinks I get too many ideas.

11.  I went to a short photography course over the last weekend and I loved it!  Note to self .. must spend more time taking photos to practice!

See, there's nothing that exciting there!

Next up, the answers to my 11 questions ...

1. If you had to go out for dinner with either Julia Gillard or Tony Abbott, who would you choose and why?
Hmmm, being into health and fitness as I am I'm rather curious to chat to Tony Abbott about his fitness regime and why he believes it is important.  I would also be interested to hear Julia Gillard's views on Australia's obesity crisis .. and her own health & fitness regime.

2.What’s the most adventurous sport you’ve ever tried?
I completed the Stampede in September and I guess one could all that a bit adventurous.  I also did the obligatory white water rafting trip down a river in a European country whilst on a Contiki tour! Photographic evidence is held for both!

3.What’s the best James Bond film you have ever seen?
I will admit I've not seen many James Bond films, however I'm rather partial to Daniel Craig ( *giggles and waves* ) ...

4.When was your last baking triumph?
Oh, even Mr Fit Mum agreed here!  I whipped up those yummy Cranberry and Coconut Muffins over the weekend.  Absolute winner!

5. And cooking disaster?
Mr Fit Mum wanted to know if I was allowed to mention the time/s that he may or may not have put out some fires in the kitchen.  Really there haven't been that many ...

6. Are you ruled by your heart or your head (as Pauline says, “please explain”)
I would love to say head but I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve a bit and have known to occasionally be not as rational as I should be ...

7. Do you have any regrets over your career choice?
Current career choice .. No, I love my job!  I love helping people and help them realise they can feel good about themselves.  Especially the changes that they go through.
Previous career choice .. No, but it's not for me now!

8. Do you like dogs?
Yes, love dogs.  My most reliable running companion is our Border Collie, Baxter .. he is just gorgeous!

9. Have you ever tried martial arts?
No .. not unless you count the Karate Kid ...

10. Have you taken any measures to improve your personal sustainability (eg recycle, use public transport)
We recycle what we can and watch our water consumption and electricity usage. 

11. What is your opinion of Global Warming?
In general I think that we all need to be a little more respectful and considerate of our surroundings and how our actions may or may not affect others.

Phew!! Here's my questions for my lucky nominees ...

1.  The sport I most love playing ( or watching ) and why?
2.  What is the strangest thing you have ever eaten?
3.  One bad habit I have is ...
4.  What item won't you leave the house without?
5.  When I was young I used to collect ...
6.  I'd be happy if I never had to [ .... ] again!
7.  One thing I have enjoyed today and why?
8.  One person that inspires me and why?
9.  What is your favourite guilty pleasure?
10.  What is the last thing that you do before your turn the light off at night?
11.  If you had one super power, what would it be and why?

And the lucky nominees are .. this does take a while to write so please feel free to ignore, however I would love to get you know some of you a bit more!

Miss Vicki

thank you for the kindness and the sharing.

Love the gemini - I think my husbands was a yellow one too.

and yes you know I can't go past any stationery.
it seems to collect with me - or is that haberdashery and craft….

Thanks again Vicki!
