I got nothin...

Happy Friday! 

I have nothing for you today. It's what would be day 11 of my juice reboot, but life got a little busy these last couple of days and I just didn't have the time to juice, the time to go out and get more food to juice, or the energy to stay up extra late and spend an extra 20 minutes cleaning the juicer. So, day 9, 10 and 11 are a complete wash. You can expect days 12, 13, and 14 to be washes too.

So here's a little A-Z about me for you.

Age: 28, but I have to stop and think about it whenever someone asks. I still feel 23.

Bed size: Double. Need to upgrade!

Chore you hate:  Cleaning the kitchen

Dogs: Miley the Yorkie, and the family dog, Trixie the Cairn Terrier, they're best buds! 

Essential start to your day: 10 more minutes of sleep. Ha!

Favorite color: Blue. And starting to really like gold.

Gold or Silver: Always used to be a silver person, but I might have an affair with gold every once and a while!

Height: 5'7 3/4

Instruments you play: I grew up playing the piano and still dabble when I'm at my parents. I played the oboe for two years in Jr. High. 

Job Title: Executive Assistant / Event Coordinator

Kids: Just my little fur ball Miley!

Live: As if no one is watching!

Married: to myself.  

Nicknames: Ali, Al, Bubb, Bubba

Overnight hospital stays: Knock on wood, never!

Pet peeve: People who don't walk on the right side. It's like driving, stay on your side. 

Quote: "The greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just to love and be loved in return"

Righty or Lefty: Righty

Siblings: Two sisters and a bro-in-law. I'm the middle.

Time you wake up: 6:00-6:30 AM depending on how many times I hit snooze

University attended:  I dabbled, Winona State, MCTC (Minneapolis Community & Tech College) and STI (Southeast Tech Institute)

Vegetables you dislike: Red pepper

What makes you run late: Straightening my hair 

X-rays you've had: I had my foot x-rayed last year, turned out to just be a sprain. Had my knee x-rayed when I was 10 to see what this lump was in my knee. Turned out to be loose cartilage from growing too fast. 

Yummy food: Anything cheesy, Chinese food, and Fettucini Alfredo

Zoo animal favorite: Monkey's/Gorillas. They are always one to put on a show.

I took an amazing class at LA Fitness last night called Step Sculpt. The first 35 minutes was all step and kicks, and a great workout, the final 25 minutes was sculpt, using weights, and doing lots of planks and squats. I felt super foolish at the beginning of the class, but once I got the routine and the hang of it, I loved it and can't wait to go back to another class!

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I have heard that cleaning a juicer is a timely chore in itself! I haven't ventured down that route yet...Good luck if you continue!

  2. Juicing is great and it's fun to put all the veggies and fruit in the juicer, but yes, the clean-up is a pain with the blade and strainer.
