good old days + PTC love

Happy Saturday friends!

While Michelle is in Chicago working with Raw Threads at the Chicago marathon, I am home getting work done around here. Working on more posts for our purely fit members and getting things done around the house. Of course getting to spend time with Gary and Jax :)

We received the Sunshine Award from our dear friend Teri. Just like what Teri and Janetha said these awards and blog posts bring back the good old days :)

We agree with them. We remember when we first started blogging how awards and questions style posts were happening all the time. Oh the good old days. We enjoy getting to know the bloggers behind the blog.  We know sometimes these posts get over looked, like guest posts do, but we do enjoy reading them and we hope you enjoy reading our answers.

Time to bring back some of those good old blogging days feelings, shall we begin.


1. Include award logo in a post or on your blog.
2. Link to the person who nominated you.
3. Answer 10 questions about yourself.
4. Nominate 10 bloggers to receive the award and ask them 10 questions.

Below are the questions Teri asked us.

1. What’s your favorite holiday and why? 

This is a tough one as we both adore Thanksgiving and Christmas. We love the change in weather. The chance to spend more time with our family and friends. The happiness that’s in the air as everyone around you just seems to be in a better mood.

2. If you could go any place in the world, where would it be? 

Australia is on our list of a place in the world we would love to go to. Maybe one day :)

3. Are you an introvert or extrovert? What’s an trait you have that obviously proves it?

Mostly introverts, though when we are around family and friends we can be extroverts. But by nature we are normally shy and quiet girls most of the time, unless we are talking about a subject that we have a lot to say about.

4. What was the first-ever blog you read that wasn’t a close friend or family member?

Jenna from eat live run was our first blog that we read before we really understood what blogging was. We loved reading what she was up to, etc. From there we started to understand what blogging was and started following more blogs, and eventually started our own.

5. Why do you keep blogging?

We keep blogging because we really do like it. We like having a place to share and connect with so many people from all over. We like the accountability that comes with blogging. It helps keep us focused and organized in a way. We also just love sharing our passions and struggles to inspire and help others.

6. What are you looking forward to during the rest of 2013?

Continue to grow our Purely Fit community. Continue to help others get fit and feel great. Continue to grow as individuals. Continue to make yummy recipes. And really to just be with family for the holidays.

7. What is a goal you are working on right now?

Working on another cookbook. And planning out some new education we want to do in the new year like health coaches.  Trying to continue to grow our youtube presence.

8. Do you believe in fate?

Yes. We do believe things happen for a reason. Though that reason might not be clear cut, you might have to dig or think a little more about it.  We believe certain people come into your life for a specific purpose. Might not always be good, but it’s always a life lesson.

9. If you had unlimited money, how would you fill your time? 

Traveling. Helping out causes that we believe in. Start up an after school program for kids to learn about exercise and healthy eating.

10. What’s your favorite TV show? 

Friends and Lost. Two of our all-time favorites.

    You ladies are too cute:) And I ‘m loving your answer to #9! Especially since the last part is a big reason I’m studying to become a dietitian!! I want to show families and children, especially those in low income areas, about healthy living and why nutrition (on a budget?!) is so important! If I ever start a program like that, I’m going to call in you knowledgeable girls as guest speakers:)
