#169: Who is the strongest person you know? Hmmm…not sure.

#170: If you could take a single photograph of your life, what would it look like? Me reading with my cats while the hubby plays Minecraft on the Xbox. Boring to some, but it’s one of our favorite ways to spend a day off.

#171: Is the reward worth the risk? I don’t know. Is the reward food? And will I have to cross any heights or bodies of water to get it?

#172: For you personally, what makes today worth living? Knowing I’m about to go snuggle in bed with the cats all night. It’s been a long week. The knowledge that my hard work is paying off in a cozy little home with the people (and pets!) I love surrounding me and plenty of books & tea on the weekends makes it all worthwhile.

#173: What have you done in the last year that makes you proud? Got a promotion at work. And also, figured out how to make my own vegan ice cream at home. That’s a big deal, people.

#174: What did you learn recently that changed the way you live? My husband would like to interject here that I’m a nicer person when I’m managing my caffeine habit. Which is true. I haven’t had a cup of coffee in a week (!) and feel great. (I’m still drinking tea and the occasional natural energy drink, but I cut out coffee, soda and Monster.) I guess I’ve realized that it really is worth it to stay on a strict diet, no matter how much I hate giving up the foods I love. I just feel so much better when I’m not eating tons of carbs and sugar. Though if you offered me pizza with extra green peppers on top or a dish of salted caramel fudge ice cream right now I’d probably inhale it without chewing. My willpower flags when I’m tired. Time to go to bed and stop thinking about food!

#175: What is your fondest memory from the past three years? Probably something involving sleeping in. I feel like I never sleep enough. Or food. Maybe the last time we scarfed pizza and binge-watched Fringe. I, uh, I’m detecting a pattern in my thought process today.

    169. Me, surprisingly. People I know get too emotional and lose it.

    170. A picture of myself drenched in the rain.

    171. It depends on how bad I want it.

    172. Because my kids, family, and work need me.

    173. Taught my son how to drive.

    174. My sister is moving south and not being able to see her regularly is going to feel really different and empty.

    175. To know that no matter how alone I feel that there is always someone out there who thinks of me.
