I’ve been listening to some of Rachel Hollis’s ORIGINAL podcasts – I’m talking like 2016 – pre Girl Wash Your Face – to pick up some biz tips for the new project I’m launching soon (you’re going to want to join my Facebook group to find out more! Here is that link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/322758231438613)
If Rachel interviews any guest on her podcast, she always ends the podcast with 5 questions for the guest and I thought it would make a fun blog post if I answered them!
- What is your go to coffee drink?
I would say right now it is a Starbucks double shot on ice – this is my go to if I really need to be awake or maybe I didn’t sleep well before night shift. I also buy Starbucks iced coffee at like Fareway or Walmart. I love adding Sweet and Low – it’s my favorite sweetener. I’ve tried to switch to all natural sweeteners and I just can’t taste it like I can with Sweet n’ Low – Splenda tastes too fake for me – needless to say I’m pretty picky about my sugars that go in my coffee. I also love a good splash of vanilla almond milk in my hot coffee if I’m at home for the day.
- What time do you wake up in the mornings?
I’m a night shifter – actually, I signed a “contract” at work that instead of working 6 weeks days/6 weeks nights – I’m strictly night shift now! So when do I wake up in the mornings? On my days off the boys are usually awake by 6 am crawling into bed and asking for TV or YouTube or snacks – and I usually lay in bed for another hour and up by 7. I wish I was the kind of person who gets up early but I give myself a pass because I work such weird hours.
- What is your morning routine?
Again, night shifter. I don’t have a morning routine. Every day, every week is different and I’d rather have that than a set every day routine. There are certain things I like to get done in a day – usually the dishes, usually cooking, usually a nap (if I’m working that night or worked the night before). That’s about as consistent as my days are!
- What is your favorite form of exercise?
ROLLER SKATING – but mountain biking is a close second! I used to work out every week with a personal trainer but to be honest, I’m still not back to where I was before COVID. I’ve tried working out a few times but I’ve blacked out and had to stop. I’ve loved roller skating and biking every since I was little – for some reason when I got older I thought those things were too “childish” for me but once I got over that, I really truly enjoy biking and skating.
- What is something that is always in your travel bag?
Well, I have braces so that’s easy – TOOTHPICKS! and I always need a pony tail holder. I don’t go anywhere without my phone or my Apple Air Pods. I ALWAYS need something to drink too!
