Hello! So yesterday I had a team meeting at a nearby gym I’ve been coaching (group fit and nutrition) at. Prior to the meeting the owner had our little team do personality quizzes so that we could get to know each other better. Before giving us our results he read off the different profiles and then asked us to state which profile we thought we scored highest and lowest on.
- Strength – Problem solver, independent, thinks work is play
- Road Blocks/Barriers – Lacks connection and warmth, gets tripped up looking for too many facts/knowledge
- Strength – Creative and a lot of fun to be around
- Road Blocks/Barriers– lacks focus and not strong with numbers
- Strength – building relationships
- Road Blocks/Barriers- emotions
- Strength – very technical , instructions, commitment, work before play
- Road Blocks/Barriers – lacks personality/people skills
I guessed I was green for the highest and gold for the lowest.
I was right about the gold, but apparently, I scored highest in orange, closely followed by green. I’m actually kind of relieved, it’s good to be able to build connections!
Do I think I lack focus and strength with numbers?
At first, I was like, uh no I’m extremely focused! I got a 4.0 in grad school, you don’t do that if you aren’t focused! On second thought, I thought about how quick I am to try a new project or take on multiple projects at once. You know what I LOVE about running my own business? No two days are ever really ever the same. One day I could be working with one on one with Hungry Hobby RD clients, developing recipes, photography, teaching, coaching, freelance writing, developing meal plans, and/or blogging. Usually some combination of all of those and usually never in the same order. It keeps me entertained, excited, and to me, it feels focused. Mr. Hungry thinks it sounds like a nightmare. He keeps playing that Kevin Gates I Don’t Get Tired Song for me saying it’s my theme song. (I added it below but beware it is a rap song.)

I think the real problem for me is that I’ve got things going in a million different directions and I stick them out way too long, even when I know that they aren’t right for me. So recently I’ve tried to assess what I’m involved in to see if it is lucrative (is it worth it?) and if I enjoy it? If the answer is no to both those questions I’ve had to learn to get out and stop forcing something that doesn’t feel right.
Week 28: Add Veggies to Breakfast
Yikes! Every week I say to myself, I can’t believe we are already at week X, you think the novelty of time passing will ever wear off?
Last week our goal = more veggies for snacks! How did you do? I did okay, I came up with an epic peanut butter yogurt dip to help me get in more veggies, it will be on HH soon! This week I’m challenging you to get in veggies at an even more difficult time of the day: breakFAST. Most of us want a quick and dirty filling breakfast that tastes great with minimal fuss.
Veggies aren’t exactly on the top of the list for most of us! Luckily with a little creativity and focus, you can start your day off right!
- Smoothies! Add a handful of spinach to any smoothie with peanut butter or banana. I swear those flavors make it so you can’t taste it! I also love shredded carrots with tropical fruit smoothies, the orange seems to go right along with those tropical fruits like mango.
- Sautee them (anything from green leafy veggies to zucchini to whatever you have) and top it (or scramble) with an egg. Done!
- Meal prep – I find egg quiches, muffins, and casseroles to be the easiest way to get veggies in the morning. Reheat and you are good to go!
- Swap grains for root vegetables. Do you usually go for toast and peanut butter? Try a nut butter topped sweet potato or make protein pancakes (make these on the weekend to eat all week!)
- Eat last night’s leftovers. We typically save dinner leftovers for lunch or the next night’s dinner. If you can get past the not eggs or oatmeal thing, try it, you might love it!
