In the spirit of Throwback Thursday, after going Tuesday Beauty happy and adding the 2 for Tuesday *bonus* Sweater Weather Tag, I’m accepting these 2013 truth challenges for full disclosure. Enjoy, and if you’ve done either of these tags, please feel free to comment with the link to your answers!

 * Lifestyle & Fitness Tag ~ from GetFitWithLeyla‘s Lifestyle & Fitness TAG video [Questions are in bold; my answers are in italics.]

  1. How fit do you consider yourself to be? Are you happy with the shape you’re in? On a scale from 1-10, I’d say an 8. While I know that I’m fab, I still can stand to lose some flab. 
  2. Do you play any sports? I did back in the day ~ as in basketball & tennis 2 decades ago in jr. high ~ then discovered that I’m a much better spectator @ my fave sport: basketball, than I am as a baller… Competitions in which I’ve participated as a grown-up have been races, but I’ve mainly run them to benefit their worthy causes. Now I’m proud to say that I’m part of the 26.2 (full marathon) club & have run in several smaller events (e.g., 5Ks) since then! 
    Fiesta Marathon

    Shot Gun Bang! Fiesta Marathon‘s my chance to run like a Mustang!

    STC 5K

    South Texas College 5K (where I used to teach) ~ I should’ve done more high knees!

  3. Besides those, do you exercise as well? That’s exactly what I do to stay fit nowadays! Please check out my recommendations on the Pretty Fit Way blog & the Pretty Fit iOS app
  4. Do you have any fitness or health related goals? I work out to stay healthy, relieve stress & reduce my risk for disease in the long run. 
  5. Which celebrity’s body would you like to have? Does Elaine Dispo count? I’d like to say I’m my own celeb… But if I had to choose someone other than yours truly, I really dig on Jessica Alba’s bod! Plus, I must give myself props on mocking other folks pretty well for Halloween.

    Princess Leia Wannabe

    I love the Princess Leia hair from Episode IV, but it’s her goddess bod from VI that screams SEXY!

  6. What’s your favorite and/or least favorite exercise? My #1 fave is dancing because I can do it anywhere & everywhere; as a matter of fact, I most recently caught myself just grooving to the chores without even planning to burn calories that way today! My least fave may have to be burpees (jump to plank to squat) because they kick my boot-ay, but they’re definitely effective for my boot-ay! 
  7. How important is leading an active and healthy lifestyle for you? Extremely; this is THE way of life, not just for the sake of taking care of our bodies, but also our minds & our souls ~ not to mention our hearts (both literally & figuratively) ~ all the way inside & out! 
  8. How much attention to a healthy diet do you pay? On a scale from 1-10, I’d go with a 7. Although I keep track of my calorie consumption & burn, I don’t always pass up my weakness: sweets (e.g., cupcakes)! 
  9. What’s your biggest diet secret? I don’t diet. Since I don’t believe in depriving myself from what brings me joy, I’ll at least control my portions & eat in moderation. 
  10. Do you smoke, or have you ever smoked in the past? Never ever. I don’t have the desire to mess up my lungs, heart, teeth or skin… So no, thanks! 

* Procrastinating Beauty Tag [from FrmHeadToToe Jen‘s Procrastinating Beauty Blogger TAG]

  1. Name a beauty regimen that you rarely do? I’ve never applied primer to my face. I’m not into caking on a mask, as I’m completely content with my concealer, foundation & powder (I don’t always use ALL of the above @ the same time). 
  2. Is washing your make-up brushes something that you do regularly? I don’t wash them too frequently because I want them to last, so I don’t use the same ones too often. When I do wash them, I use my M•A•C Brush Cleanser (pictured below). 
  3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish? I plead the 5th… on going past the 5th day. 
    Spring forward

    Spring forward means…

    Sports Watches

    … that it’s time to change my nail color!

  4. How long will you put off buying/replacing a beauty product, even if you need it? I seldom ever need a new beauty product because I usually have a backup supply to replenish once I run out of something. 
  5. What is your worst beauty habit? Admittedly, I’ve gone to sleep without removing my makeup & washing my face on more than a few occasions ~ not something I’m proud of, for which there aren’t any legit excuses. 
  6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time? Decluttering ~ which I’m actually doing during this Spring Break on breaks from my dissertation! Since I’m not that much of a cosmetics hoarder, I don’t have much to purge, but I did get rid of loads of Bath & Body Works nail polish 1½ years ago, way past due. 
  7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready to the last minute? Not always; I usually spare 2-3h before I’m supposed to leave for a planned event, so I can devote a little more time on my studies, a project or pleasure-______ (-reading, -surfing ~ as in channel- or net-surfing, etc.) before I take off. If I go the other way around & keep working then have minimal time to shower, hair & makeup + nails, then I don’t do myself justice. 
  8. Can you commit to spending bans? I haven’t made any, but I suppose that it’s worth a shot. Now if I only I had before my cosmetics sprees! How lame that my hometown just closed down our only M•A•C shop yesterday after being open for a short while. 
  9. How organized are your make-up and nail polish collections? On a scale from 1-10, this should be a solid 9. Check out my acrylic organizer on my dresser here, where I can find everything in place, arranged according to color & category (nails on the left, makeup on the right). The red & clear beads that help keep my eye liners, lip balms & gloss straight in the front right compartment are from the centerpiece of my table at the Sweetheart Ball to celebrate this past Valentine’s Day
