How Low Can You Go

You Fancy Huh?

>> Sunday, January 16, 2011

I got a blog award! The "Stylish Blog Award" was given to me by Tim over at Fat.Boy.Thin.  Tim is from across the pond (England), he has a great sense of humor and is doing a great job on his weight loss journey.  He challenges himself to eat healthier as well as cooks up healthy meals to maintain his new lifestyle, sometimes he has fantastic results, other times.....let's just say he takes us along for the ride and knows when to laugh at himself, a quality that we can all use.

The rules of this award:

  • Post and link back to the person who awarded you this award     Done!
  • Share 7 things about yourself
  1. I used to hate my name, Haneefa means "true believer" in Arabic and for a few years in Elementary school, I hated that my name was not common like everyone elses (I have yet to meet another Haneefa personally), people would pronounce my name wrong and look at me funny when I introduced myself (sometimes that still happens). I even wrote, "Elizabeth" on a test once in Grade 4 because I was fed up. Now, I have learned to love my name, it is unique and really a part of me.  People are always saying, "What can I call you for short?". My answer, "Haneefa". I would not change it for the world.
  2. I am outgoing and have no fears of public speaking, I am that person that will be the first one on the dance floor or volunteer first to present.  I love getting the party started.
  3. I have a pretty good sense of humour, I love jokes and sarcasm.  I have learned over the years that you have to be able to take it as well as dish it out.
  4. I am a huge procrastinator.  If procrastination was a country I would be the President.  I always leave things to the last minute, I just work better that way.  I used to say that I should be a newspaper journalist because I would work better under pressure with the deadlines.
  5. In University I won an "Orgasm Faking" contest at a local bar.  Hahaha, too funny, I haven't thought about that in years .
  6. I love Horror movies and Thrillers, movies like the Friday the 13th series, as well as Jason are up on my list.
  7. I will try anything once, food and activity wise. I live by the motto what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

  • Award 5 bloggers who have "Stylish" blogs.  I will just say that a few people I would have nominated have already received an award.  Check out the following blogs.

Side Note: Today's run was fantastic yet so cold -12 C (about 10 F), it was a winter wonderland, since we got about 10 cms of snow last night.  that didn't stop us from doing 6.5K!  Running club had a great turnout of about 30 people, I guess the weather did not detour anyone. 

I have been journaling for 2 days and it is going well, here is a sample of the day so far:

P.S. Target is coming to Canada, WOOO HOOOO!  They are taking over 80% of the Zellers' stores in Canada.  I am so excited
Have a great week!
