In our weekly Friday Feature, we share a 5-question interview with one of the fantastic members of HealthyLivingBlogs.com. Take the time to get to know your co-members, pick up tips and tricks, blogging know-how, and recommendations from your fellow bloggers. If you’re an HLB member and haven’t gotten your interview email yet, don’t worry, you will in time! We’re working our way through a list of 2,000+ members’ blogs at random.
1. What’s your name, blog name, and how did you create your blog title?
I’m Libby Pfonner from Run Libby. My favorite movie of all time is Forrest Gump… and as you know there’s a famous line from that movie, “Run, Forrest! Run!” My blog title derived from that line since my blog is about the birth of a runner and my adventures along the way.
2. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
PIZZA! There’s so many different options for pizza. Dress it up, dress it down, or even make it non-Italian. I made a corn beef and cabbage pizza for St Patty’s day and it was amazing.
3. How would you describe your blogging style?
From the hip. I generally write how I talk, but I do try to make sure everything makes sense and has a flow.
4. What is something about you that would shock us?
I am a 29 year old woman that could never run more than one mile at a time. Last week I ran 10 miles straight with no breaks, something high school me would have never thought possible.
5. What is your tagline and why?
“I’m not on a diet, I’m changing my lifestyle.” I say this often in my blog. Diets don’t work. If you want to be healthy and stay healthy you have to do it for life. Diets also imply depriving yourself of certain foods, which I think sets you up for failure. You have to learn how to eat those foods. Eat less or change the recipe to make it healthier. There are so many options out there that allow you to eat what you love and still stay healthy.
6. Do you have days when you just don’t feel like eating healthy, cooking, or exercising?
All the time. This is where my “support” word comes in. Thankfully I have a husband that is on the same journey as me and we keep each other in check. I have found an exercise that I love, so I don’t really have days I don’t want to do that, but I do have days where I just want to eat everything in sight or I’m too lazy to cook and want to order out. On those days I try to choose something that’s some what healthy (Subway for example) and stick with portion control.
