Time for Round 15 of Ask Me Anything questions selected from the anonymous questions you guys have submitted.
Do you exercise on an empty stomach or with a little something in your belly? I know you are not an expert and even experts vary in their opinions, I was just wondering your take and because I personally wake up hungry!
It depends on the day. Most weekday mornings, I do not eat before I workout because I get cramps if I eat within an hour of exercising and I’m not about to wake up in the 4 a.m. hour just to eat. Also, I think my body is used to this, because if I wake up before 7 a.m., I’m not hungry. On the weekend when I wake up after 7 a.m., I am hungry and will typically eat a small meal about and hour or two before hitting the gym.
How did you decide to get a vizsla? Where did you find Sadie?
Please see this post for answers to these questions and other FAQs about Sadie.
How do you give Sadie a bath and how often?
Ummm… we don’t. Okay, that’s a lie, but we rarely need to bathe her. Fortunately vizslas are wonderful in that they don’t have the “dog smell” that other dogs do. We wash Sadie after romps at the dog park or after a day on the boat. Anytime she gets into lake or ocean water, we make sure to wash her because she has very sensitive skin. We’ve found that filling a bucket with water, soaping her up and and pouring the water over her little by little works best. She is not a fan of the bathtub or the hose.
Before creating your own PBF Facebook page, did you share your blog on your own Facebook account? Do your coworkers know about your blog?
It took me several months of blogging to feel comfortable with sharing my blog on my personal Facebook page. Eventually I started to fall in love with blogging and really wanted to share my blog with more people because I was pouring so much time, energy and love into it! I’m not going to lie, I was terrified to share my blog with people I knew other than my family and Ryan. A good handful of my coworkers know about my blog, but not all of them. It’s not something I broadcast around the office because I do try to keep my professional life separate from my personal life and my blog covers a lot of my personal life.
I love the cute little pack you take hiking. Is it Vera Bradley? Also, what do you put in it?
Yes, it is Vera Bradley! I take it with me to the dog park and hiking and I love it! Ryan and I typically keep water, my camera, his phone, keys, chap stick and snacks (like granola bars or an apple) in it when we go hiking.
Do you read all of your comments or do you scroll through the ones on the latest post only and then move onto your latest post?
I read every single comment that is posted on my blog, whether it is posted on a new post or an old post. I love hearing from you guys! For me, it’s one of the very best parts about blogging.
Do people ask you embarrassing or personal things on this anonymous question thing? What’s the funniest or most embarrassing thing you get asked?
I’ve received several questions about sexy time and prefer to keep the lovin’ talk off the blog. My parents read it and the one comment I made about consummation resulted in a text from my mom saying to “have fun consummating” on our honeymoon! I think I passed out.
How do you motivate yourself to go to the gym in the morning?

I love the flavors of protein powder you use. What brand are they and where do you get them?
All of my protein powders are made by All the Whey and I purchased them on Nutraplanet.com. I bought big 5 lb. tubs of them more than a year ago and still have a bunch leftover. Unfortunately many of the flavors I use seem to sell out quickly and have been out of stock on the site for a while now.
What beauty products do you recommend? Perfumes, lotions, facial care, etc.?
You may see the makeup products I use daily here. As for other products I really enjoy, I am in love with Marc Anthony Instantly Thick shampoo and conditioner. I have the thinnest hair in the world and it’s the only brand that’s ever made my hair look and feel even slightly thicker. My absolute favorite lotion is Dove Energy Glow because it does a great job of giving my body a subtle tan color without looking orange. Unfortunately it’s impossible to find and I haven’t been able to find it for several months now. As for perfume, I like Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue for work, J’adore Dior for fun nights out and Britney Spears Fantasy for date nights (it smells like vanilla). But, truth be told, I almost always forget to wear perfume.
All done! If your question was not answered, chances are I’ve addressed it before and didn’t want to bore the pants off people who have previously read my response.
