ADVENTURE TO LIVE BETTER ACCEPTS THE LIEBSTER AWARD!
First off thank you to Heart in the Home blogger Stephanie Fenn for the nomination. Heart in the Home is a blog all about bringing more light and love into the home and into your lifestyle. I have coordinated a few blog-projects with Stephanie that you will start to see soon!
So the first aspect of the Liebster Award is to answer 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you and second share 11 random things about you. Why 11? I don’t know, but that is my favorite number! (random fact #1)
Heart in the Home’s questions for Adventure to Live Better:
1. How did you decide on the title of your blog?
Actually “Adventure to Live Better” was a tagline that was brilliantly brought to the table during a brainstorming sesh with Stephanie Fenn! Originally the name for my blog was going to be “Coastline,” because I wanted to focus on active living on/near the coast. However the blog evolved and adventure became a working theme and eventually I decided to keep the tagline as the name of the blog.
2. What made you decide to start your blog?
I have wanted to do a blog for a while now. I LOVE learning about all things health and wellness and wanted a place to share my thoughts, experiences, and motivation. I launched the blog on January 1st 2015 with the New Year buzz and as apart of my commitment to lead a healthier, more active, and adventurous lifestyle.
3. What is your favorite food?
Italian food is my favorite and my worst enemy when it comes to weight loss. But! There are always healthy alternatives and ways to make it work for a clean diet!
4. Where is your favorite place to shop?
This question stumped me and makes me feel like I am less of a woman somehow, haha. I don’t actually shop that much these days, unless it is for groceries! I'm in a stage where I save and then buy something big. So while my wardrobe could definitely use an update, I am happy to have a brand new iMac sitting in my office now.
5. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be & why?
This is another tough question, because I love travel. I would be happy just about anywhere. One place I have been thinking about lately is London for New Year’s with just my husband. It would be very romantic and we would love exploring all the historical sites there. I have also always wanted to visit Australia, adventure awaits, which really needs to be a whole Summer vacation I think.
6. What’s your favorite pastime other than blogging?
Movies and Hiking.
7. What’s your favorite post you’ve written & why?
Most recently I enjoyed the post “Get Adventure Fit the Lori Martin Way.” My blog is meant to inspire other people to pursue their kind of adventure and interviewing Lori was a great way for me to share with my readers a new style of adventure, different from my own. I’m all about flying and hiking and weight loss right now. Lori is all about walking the boardwalk by the beach, hockey, and kayaking. I had fun learning about her style and I believe others did too.
8. A long lost relative gives you a large sum of money, what do you do with it?
A large sum of money? I don’t know, I’d probably put away and save for something big. Like, I could seriously use a car right now. Less practical, I’d put it into my flight training.
9. What is your all time favorite movie?
This is really an impossible question for me to answer. I love movies. I do like a lot of movies that are action adventure, disney/pixar, comedy, or fantasy.
10. Where do you see your blog going in the next year?
As the year progresses, so will the blog. You will see a lot more updates about my expedition training for Mt. Rainier. You will also see how much my health transforms over a year through adventure fitness. I would like to boost my readership this year and make it a place people want to “hangout” at. I hope to create a network or community of adventure-seeking, healthy living, active people who are able to share and learn from each other.
11. Where does your blog inspiration come from?
I of course get my inspiration from daily life. The majority of it comes from my own struggle to achieve the level of adventure fitness that I want. Some of it comes from the books or blogs I read. I am really inspired and motivated to work on posts for my blog because of some of the supporters I’ve had for my blog. Mt. Rainier, beautiful and constantly in view, is a big inspiration for the blog as well.
