Hey everyone! Hope you’re having a great morning so far 😀
For today’s reader’s request post, I had no idea what to write about, so I did what any resourceful girl would do: consulted my Tweeps 🙂
The last couple of reader’s request posts have been educational, so I thought it was high time for a fun one 😀 For other non-nutrition and fitness related posts, check out Skincare and Interior decorating.
So here we have it… my guilty (and not so guilty) pleasures 😉
1. Reality TV
Don’t get be wrong, I love watching intellectual shows just as much as the next person.. but sometimes, I want to watch something requiring minimal thought process.
Particularly my girls:
I just can’t look away. It’s funny though because the first time I saw Jersey Shore, I thought it wasn’t real. The pilot had to convince me that people actually dress like that 😉
I online shop like the best of them, since shopping opportunities are scarce in Valdosta. Amazon, eBay –I’m like a hawk.. at the last minute, I’ll swoop in, bid and WIN- Express and Sephora get hit up pretty often but my major obsession are these:
JEANS!!! Sevens are my favorite and I have quite a few pairs… I justify this expensive obsession because the quality is amazing and since I’ve been the same size for the past 5 or so years, they last quite a while.
You’ve seen my closet 😉
*Sigh* The only justification for this one is that a hawt purse just makes an outfit so much better 😀
1. Raw Cooking (or un-cooking, rather)
I love testing out my own recipes for raw creations. Whenever I get free time, chances are that I’ll spent it making up a new recipe.
I’m always reading something and try to balance out the fluffy stuff with the substantial stuff.
Here’s the current “fluff”
This one has taken me a while to get through.. after every section, I stop and think about what I just read and how its applicable to my life. It’s a wonderful and very interesting read.
I’m like an addict when it comes to aerobics classes. Maybe it’s my dance background, but if I could, I’d take a couple of classes every day. When we lived in North Carolina (and I wasn’t working), I took yoga, step and spin everyday, just because I enjoy the classes so much (and yes, I ate a lot more food to fuel this activity!). The thing is, in Valdosta we don’t have a lot of aerobics classes nearby –unless they’re on base, or I teach them- so it’s probably for the best. When I was doing so much aerobics, my body was in a catabolic state and despite my constant snacking, I was burning muscle away. So even though I was having the time of my life, I was also the “smushiest” I’ve ever been… just goes to show that more isn’t always better when it comes to cardio and aerobics.
I can’t believe I haven’t posted these on the blog yet!
I LOVE THESE LITTLE THINGS!
My friend Ashley introduced me to Ginger Chews when we went to Ft Lauderdale. Those little bites of ginger goodness stole my heart and I’ve had at least one every day since then. I try to have less than two, as they’re sugary little things, but they taste like sweet and spicy heaven.
So those are my guilty and not-so guilty pleasures. I tried to write about things not related to food (as we all know my love for almond butter, millet bread, mary’s crack, red wine, maca and goat cheese is ridiculous) and hope ya’ll enjoyed this reader’s request!
