Be Your Own Olympian

I read an interesting article today in the Health & Fitness section of, offering average people tips on how to train like an Olympian.

  • Set a goal and break it down
  • Cross train
  • Work out with others
  • Utilize people who can help you (a trainer, nutritionist, physical therapist, etc.)

I wish I had a nutritionist, or better yet, a personal chef, to “utilize.”  Ryan and I ask each other “would you rather” questions all the time, and one of my past favorites is, “Would you rather have a personal trainer or a personal chef?”

This was an easy one for both of us… Personal chef! I would love to have someone make nutritious and delicious meals for me. How sweet would that be!? I think I would miss cooking and baking a bit though…

Now it’s your turn:

Would you rather have a personal trainer or a personal chef?

Aren’t “would you rather” questions fun? 😀

Mid Morning Snack

My breakfast sandwich was tasty, but not too filling. I dug into my mid morning snack a bit early today.

Peanutty Yogurt

I ate a small handful of peanuts before sprinkling a few on top of a cup of Fage Greek yogurt.

I think Fage is my favorite brand of Greek yogurt. It tastes the thickest to me, which is my main criteria for good tastin’ yogurt.

When I made pasta for lunch yesterday, I made extra to pack in my lunch today.

Pasta Bowl

This particular pasta bowl had lots of veggies mixed in, plus several shakes of Parmesan cheese.

Is pasta even pasta without Parmesan cheese???

  1. Thank you for the coup link- I love Fage and how thick and creamy it is too. And for teh would you rather… I think I would go with personal chef, but maybe with a day or two off per week so I can get my cooking fix 😀

  2. Probably a personal trainer, b/c I can’t seem to get my butt on the treadmill. I would love a personal chef as well, but would really miss doing the cooking/baking:)

  3. Thanks so much for the coupon, I’ve been looking at Fage the past few times I’ve been at the store and I have yet to buy it. Now I have a reason to!!
    And I agree with Ally, a person chef would be awesome but I would miss cooking for myself, I love it!

  4. My husband and I play the Would you Rather game on long car rides…it gets a little bizarre sometimes 🙂

    I would rather have a trainer! I would miss cooking if I had a chef!

  5. Personal chef!!!! By far! I like to think I know how to challenge myself enough in the gym…but in the kitchen. I know I’m not all that. I need the help. And food always tastes better when you don’t have to make it 🙂

  6. Personal Chef please 🙂

    Love the dress you wore to dinner, gorgeous!

    congrats on the new place!

  7. I would rather have a trainer or a coach. I would love to have a running coach who would design my workouts and push me!

  8. I´d rather have a personal chef. I think they´re SO much cooler then personal trainers – you´d see your personal chef much more often, haha 😉
    Yummy eats!
    And congrats on that new place! It´s amazing that you get to start moving so early – it really makes the whole experience less stressful!
    Brazilian XOXO´s,

  9. I think I would actually rather have a personal trainer – someone to keep me accountable. I love to cook, I don’t think I could ever give that up!!

  10. I would rather have a trainer. I enjoy training with somebody as it usually pushes me much further plus it’s fun as well. And I can not go as heavy with my weights when I’m training on my own.
    Chef would be handy too though… can I have BOTH? 😉

  11. I would rather have a trainer. I suffer from lack of motivation at times, but I always like to cook!

  12. […] Plain Greek Yogurt (thanks again PB fingers for the coupon!), some raspberry strawberry granola, and crushed […]
