10 Day You Challenge

1. Kyle

holiday party kyle me

My first (and last) boyfriend. The guy who lets me be dorky, silly, crazy, cranky, and all of the above. He grounds me, makes me happy, and I don’t feel whole without him. Seriously, I get grumpy when I don’t see him. Ask my family. He’s my lobster.

2. My family

I have the best family. Of course I thought my parents were idiots and my sister was the most annoying thing in the world when I was an obnoxious teenager. But as I grew up and out of my “idiot phase” I’ve realized how lucky I am. Thanks for putting up with the most annoying person (aka teenager) in the world during those years, family.

3. My pets:Β Snickers, Sienna, Skyler


Snickers (aka sick kitty) has been my buddy since elementary school. She keeps me company when I’m sick, or basically any time I’m laying down. We played fetch together (yep), I cleaned up after she weavedΒ an entire ball of yarn through the whole house, we showered together (her choice), and now that she’s sick I heat up her food when I feed her because she prefers it.

Sienna is my big, clumsy, expressive, lovable buddy. She talks to me when she’s hungry, she goes with me on walks and some runs, we cuddle after my workouts, she lays in the bathroom when I shower, she eats garbage and lets me pick up the mess, and she’s always willing to help me clean the kitty litter boxes by eating some of the “snacks” in there…


Skyler is my baby that I adopted in high school. She’s not the sharpest tool in the shed, but she’s adorable in every way. She attacks her tail, gets locked into rooms when the door isn’t actually shut, pounces on top of me when I’m sleeping, jumps and puts her front paws on me when she wants to be pet, and tries to open a new bag of cat or dog food as soon as we bring it home from the store.

4. My friends.

I don’t have too many close friends, but the ones I do have are the best. IΒ much prefer quality over quantity. And this is depressing because I don’t have many (group) photos with myΒ friends. This needs to change cause photos with 2 friends is not enough.

5. Baking

It’s how I relieve stress, show someone I care, and have fun.


6. Travelling

And let me clarify- I hate the actual travel part (driving, planes, etc.). I like the exploring the destination part.

7. Running

Never thought I would say that. Running the mile in PE was the worst day of the year. And now I choose to run 13.1 miles for fun.

Santa Cruz Half Marathon 4.13.14-7

8. Hiking and exploring the outdoors

When snakes and lizards aren’t involved.

9. Dessert

You don’t name your blog, Fitness Meets Frosting, without loving dessert. Favorites: frozen yogurt, angel food cake, non-chocolate cake in general WITH frosting, candy (sweet and sour gummy things), Snickerdoodles, etc. I could go on for a whole page.

  1. This is so sweet. I love everything about it (and everything about you actually). I adore the last one. I am such a dessert lover. When I first told Rock about your blog he knew he liked you at frosting. We will get a dessert just to eat the frosting πŸ™‚

    1. Aww you’re too kind! LOL OMG I think the 3 of us just became best friends. I’m sorry but a cake without frosting (my only exception is angel food cake) is just an overly sweet muffin. πŸ˜‰

  2. I haven’t yet ventured into making my own macarons (though I’m an expert at eating other people’s) but yours look so good! Some of my loves: Joe, Slider, Stevie, running (obviously), traveling, cooking (prefer cooking to baking actually!)

  3. Can I just tell you how obsessed I am with your hair in the photo of you and Kyle. The volume is making me jealous!!

    My loves: A (my husband), Paisley/Kinley/Bentley/Scotty (animals), family, sweet tea, and running.

  6. I love candy too! I’m all over the place and an equal opportunity abuser- sweet, sour, hot, love it a lllll

  7. Nice Amy, nice! I’m with you on some of these. I do love running, traveling, etc. But I love cooking – not baking – I don’t like being restricted to measurements.
    Something else I love? Well, I find that each pre-dawn morning that I get ready for a run, I always go to the kids’ rooms and kiss them goodbye and tell them I love them. They’re asleep, but I think they still hear.

    1. Haha I think Kyle would agree with you about the cooking thing! Since I’m anal and super type A, measurements are super important to me haha πŸ˜‰

      GAWWWWWWW OMG that’s the sweetest thing ever! I bet you when they’re older that will be one of their fondest memories. They’ll say that “Dad thought we were asleep but…”

      1. Ha, so should we call your ‘anal girl’? πŸ˜‰

        Thaaaaannnkkk you! That’s so sweet! I know they are knocked out, but that’d be sweet if your prediction came true!

  8. You guys are seriously the most photogenic couple I’ve ever seen. Some of my loves are the same (family, friends, exploring outside, running). I also love reading, playing games, and singing on long car trips
