5 Things Survey Fun

My site was up and down yesterday so if you miss my Long Island Half Marathon training recap, click here to catch up!

I am finally getting around to this 5 Things Survey which has been floating around the internet. After seeing Alyssa share her 5 Things last week, I decided it was time I tackled it too.

I changed up some of the 5 Things categories though and added some of my own as well 🙂

5 Foods I Eat Every Day:

It’s weird to not include peanut butter in this list but I haven’t been eating it every day like usual. After having a stomach virus a few weeks ago, peanut butter lost its appeal. I don’t even understand this myself but I am just going with what I am in the mood to eat for now.

  1. Oatmeal
  2. Apples
  3. Sweet Potatoes
  4. Chocolate
  5. Avocado

I had the best baked oatmeal at the Premiere Diner over the weekend!

Hi! I'm Meredith. Join me while I run and cook my way through single motherhood. It is always an adventure trying to teach my 12 year old son the benefits of an active lifestyle combined with healthy eating while of course, still leaving room for dessert.

  1. Fun survey! I would definitely wear leggings and sweatshirts all the time if I worked from home. I am the same with small spoons and forks! We have bigger ones that I avoid, and I will actually take the little ones out of the dishwasher and hand wash them if we run out! And I definitely prefer to use a spoon whenever I can as well.

  2. I love these surveys! My weekend was boring so I’ll try to come up with a few things…
    1. long walks with selma and Dan
    2. garage sale craziness at REI
    3. long run in the rain
    4. meal prepping for the week
    5. cancelled my gym membership since we’re MOVING!

    Yes, my life is boring lately!

  3. I only use little spoons–I mean often times little espresso spoons lol. I always eat with a spoon. I put one at my place setting at every meal and always request one in a restaurant when there is not one. my daughter likes to eat her breakfast and desert with her little silverware from when she was kid and believe me she is well beyond that. Love your taste on lulu. Have a great week.

  4. Such a fun survey! I wear sweatshirts or a non-running tech layer (I have some I like too much to sweat in) almost everyday plus the PrAna Kara jean which is so comfy. And Lancome mascara and earrings are also part of my uniform. Working from home definitely has its perks!

  5. So jealous that you were from work. That would be awesome! How cool you were neighbors with Jerry Seinfeld’s sis. I would love to eat avocados everyday but they are so darn expensive. I made some guacamole last night as a little treat last night. …so good!

  6. Oats and chocolate are on my list too, and then bananas, almond butter, and dates. And I’ve been stalking Lulu’s page for a few weeks now and they have SO many cute things. I think I’m gonna have to finally head in there… and probably walk out with half the store 😆

  7. SO COOL about Jerry Seinfeld’s sister. That’s amazing! 5 things I did this weekend:
    1) Watched Kylah’s soccer game
    2) Went for a run
    3) Got our kitty spayed
    4) Vacuumed and mopped floors (right before Callum went ballistic with a box of fishy crackers)
    5) Went out for appies and wine last night with Andrew (and our cute little tagalong)

    1. so so so worth it! even if it’s more expensive, lulu stuff is worth it because of the fit and how durable it is. not to mention, always looks good! I don’t even need anything new right now because everything I have bought lasts for so long.

  8. Love your top 5 running songs! I love running to Fall Out Boy but can rarely listen to it otherwise because it seems kind of aggressive. Aka perfect for running! I’m a lefty too but do lots of things right-handed since the right-handers basically overtake everything in this world.

  9. I would definitely have Teeghan from Half-Baked Harvest come and cook for me, great choice! I’m a spoon and small cutlery person too – I think it’s because I like to really enjoy every bit of food!
