Answers to the questions asked by Marion for the Leibster awar 

What is a great personal insight you want to share?
In life you have to work hard for everything you want.There will always be obstacles like tests to see if you really want it.

3 favorite songs and why you like them.
With or Without you - (David Guetta ft Usher)  & Scream and Shout - (Will.I.Am feat Britney Spears) : both this are on my playlist for running..they just change my mood and I run faster
You make me happy (Sophie Madeline)  - this is such a sweet song

2 favorite movies and why you like them.
Patch Adams : I'm totally in love with the philosophy of using compassion and laughter to heal people, I feel this way of living can be applied to all aspects of life, building a connection and sharing a smile is very important for me to be happy
Devil wears Prada : love all her clothes :) and love her attitude of not giving up..

2 books (or articles, if you can't think of any books) you have read that influenced your life/thinking.
Veronica Decides to Die - Paulo Cohelo
(This book is a reminder for living my dreams without worrying about what anybody else thinks about me. I usually think a lot about what everybody would say before taking any is a little difficult but I think I do worry less :) )
The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah - Richard Bach
I love the quotes in this book, somehow all of them make sense to me at different points of my life.

Who is your favorite fictional character and why?
Tom and Jerry (I know..I know only kids love them..but this show always makes me smile)

What are 2 specific topics that you would like to see addressed on fitness/weight management blogs (including mine)? 
Weight loss vs being fit (a lot of people focus on weightloss and not being fit, which might depend on totally different things..I'm constantly looking for benchmarks for becoming the fittest I can)
Whole life nutrition - I saw this on Workin' it Out loved the idea and I want to know more so I can start too :)
Now that I'm done with telling you a lot about myself I should get on with my nominations
