Tracey, A to Z

In case you’re just joining us, I’m participating in the Blog Me MAYbe blogfest, the slacker’s guide to blogging every day. Because it’s Tuesday, I’m supposed to tell you something about me. Naturally, I’ve stolen an idea for that. (Thanks, Katy.)

So, a little about me, from A to Z. (And, no, I did not rhyme on purpose, but I left it in there so you’d fully appreciate my dorkiness.)

A is for age: Nice try. But I’ll just direct you here if you’re curious about my age.

B is for breakfast today: Same as always: a green smoothie. Before you scrunch up your nose and squeal “Eeeew,” you should know that it’s really good. And that’s saying a lot considering I’m probably the pickiest eater I know. Here’s the recipe:

½ can coconut milk
16-18 oz. coconut water
1 cucumber (I sometimes peel them because, especially during the winter when they’re not in season, it can lend bitterness to the drink.)
1 avocado
1 lime, peeled
1 handful spinach (Don’t worry, you don’t even taste this.)
1 scoop Amazing Grass Green SuperFood
4 1/3-filled droppers of liquid stevia
10-12 ice cubes

Instructions: Place everything but the ice in a blender, keeping the liquids at the bottom for easy blending. When the mix has been blended into a liquid, add ice. Blend well and enjoy.

C is for currently craving:
Considering I just explained how to make a healthy smoothie? Nachos.

D is for dinner tonight: Unfortunately, not nachos. I’ll probably have what I eat most nights: A giant salad with romaine, tomatoes, cucumber, red peppers, radishes, and artichoke hearts in a lemon juice–olive oil dressing.

E is for favorite type of exercise: Definitely crunches. I KNOW…who am I? But I’d rather do abs work than run any day of the week.

F is for an irrational fear: I think all of my fears are pretty darn rational: rats, snakes, bugs—especially cockroaches—and pretty much any other animal that’s smaller than my palm when fully grown.  

G is for gross food: Remember when I said I was the pickiest eater I know? Well that means I think ALL THE FOOD is gross. Okay, maybe not all of it, but definitely mayonnaise, eggs dipped in ketchup—actually, ketchup on anything that isn’t a burger or fries—runny eggs, stinky eggs… Oh, okay, I pretty much always think eggs are gross. What else? Calamari with tentacles, pate, processed meats, chicken nuggets, and, well, I could go on and on…

H is for hometown: A small town north of Boston that you probably haven’t heard of.*

I is for something important: The Man. He’s not half bad when you tune out the sports talk.

J is for current favorite jam: This survey has been especially food-based, so this might refer to a spread most often used on toast. But could it mean song I’m jamming to? NO ONE KNOWS! I’m going to take it as the latter since I don’t eat jam (the sugar and all that). At this moment, I’m rocking out to this, which fits a certain scene in my WIP:

K is for kids: Nope. But I do have two nieces and three nephews, who are cute beyond words and who I love even more knowing that I don’t have to change diapers, be the bad guy, or wake up early with them.

L is for current location: Massachusetts. More specifically, my office. Oh wait, did you not get that? MY BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW OFFICE. Ahem. I’m just excited.

M is for the most recent way you spent money: I just spent a boatload of cash on taxes, which means I can’t spend any money for the next five months. On the upside, our national debt has been lowered by a whopping $1,500. So that’s $1,500 down and $15,684,696,046,878.76 to go…

N is for something you need: Aside from $1,500?

O is for occupation: Health writer.

P is for pet peeve: I kind of have a lot of these, like people misusing your and you’re (cough The Man, cough cough), talking during a movie in the theater, and people on Facebook who say things like, “I can’t believe you treated me like that” so that the rest of us are wondering who and what they’re talking about.

Q is for a quote:

R is for random fact about you: I color-coordinate my closet.

S is for favorite healthy snack: Aside from raw fruits and veggies, I love sundried tomatoes, chipotle hummus kale chips, and roasted chickpeas.

T is for favorite treat: Well, I’m trying to limit my treats these days with hope that it’ll help my EM, so a treat for me is some form of carbohydrate. Before my health food kick? Definitely red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.

U is for something that makes you unique: Only me and about 1 in 100,000 people have EM, which makes me unique in a my-body-gives-me-second-degree-burns kind of way.

V is for favorite vegetable: Tomatoes (hush, about them actually being fruits). There’s nothing better than heirloom tomatoes in summer.

W is for today’s workout: Workout? Today? Um, well—Moving on to X...

X is for X-rays you’ve had: Whenever I do these surveys X seems to be just thrown in there, like Xylophone—do you play it often? Gah.

Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Hmm, considering I worked all day and then spent the night doing more work, I’d have to say the hour I read during dinner was pretty great.

Z is for your time zone: C’mon, time zone? Okay, okay. I’m on the East Coast. But I petition survey creators of the future to come up with something else for these end-of-alphabet letters.

Fill in some tidbits about you (pick whichever letters you want!) in the comments.

*Hipster Tracey apparently answered that question.
