I saw this on Katie's blog and decided to play :)
1. Weight training body part?

The pulling axis. I don't tend to train body parts discretely these days, I group exercises together that need to be done so I move better.

2. Cardio exercise?

I'm a cardio fanatic. I love nothing more than to give the old heart rate a good shake. I love RPM, intervals, long slow distance running, cycling, swimming and everything in between. At the moment I'm having a Bodystep Renaiisance - been teaching 2x week and loving it.

3. Intervals or steady state?

Both - they have qualities that I love depending on what I'm doing and where I'm headed with my training.

4. Carbs – friend or foe?
Friend - only become a foe when they get into bed with lots of fat attached to them.

5. Cheat meal?
I don't do cheat meals. I prefer to honour myself daily with choices congruent to my lifestyle and my core values.

6. Treat?

An Indian meal out, good chocolate and pecan pie for dessert :)

7. Protein Powder?

I use Ladybird products but when I want a protein powder treat, it's Biotest Metabolic Drive, hands down!

8. Gym outfit?
Summer: workout skirt + sports bra + Lorna slogan singlet (my favourite - "Never, never, never, give up!"
Winter: Bootleg pants, workout top and Canterbury compression tops.

9. Runners/Shoes?
Brooks Glycerin, Nike Free
Casual/apres gym: Teva

10. Clean or Dirty Diana? (clean healthy food or healthy with naughty extras)
I'm a mainly Dirty Diana chick, but going Clean retunes your taste buds

11. Inspiration?
For my scientific mind: Mike Robertson and Eric Cressey
For a fit body: Sam Stosur....muscle rules! Michelle Bridges... what a career she's had!

12. Fat Loss Philosophy?
If losing fat was just about calories in and calories out we'd all be skinny.

I'm going to add a few more:

13. Favourite Fitness Related Store or Brand:

I am a big fan of Team Estrogen. It's a US based online store which has the best cycle gear, workout shirts, skirts and tops , postage is great and stuff gets here really fast.

14. Last fitness related item you picked up?

April US Oxygen Magazine, from my mail box.

15. Your fitness philosophy?

Enjoy yourself! Play your edge! And be cool...

Forgive me for being cheeky here Liz but number 6 sounds like an awesome idea for a cheat meal! Haha, I suppose it just comes down to what you want to call it, whatever works for the individual and their own relationship with food.
I haven't heard of Team Estrogen, sounds good- will check it out thanks!
