workin' on my fitness

do any of you struggle with fitness?
i know i do...

in fact, until recently, it wasn't even something i struggled with,
because i didn't care at all.

then i realized that i was kind of acting like a 15 year old boy
minus the exercise.

how do i know this?
because i have a 15 year old brother and our eating habits were almost identical.

it's scary, i know.
but i wasn't aware of how crazy i was acting...

then a few people (my boss, my mother, etc.) decided to point out the error of my ways.
& now i've been struggling trying to change.

going on walks, eating healthier meals, cutting back on sweets,
these are some of my new goals.

if this sounds familiar, please share your tips with me!
i need all the help i can get :)

the good, the bad, the ugly

dear hollywood,

today, i thought i'd take a minute to highlight some of the bizarre things going on right now.
(because i don't know about you guys, but is my favorite website)

let's start with the good:

the duchess being pregnant, obviously!
i woke up at 4 am to watch the royal wedding, and i will love this child as my own.

now for the bad (don't hate me):

tay swift is killing me! her music may be straight from heaven,
but she has got to stop dating 18-year-old boys. it's creepy and not helping her reputation.

& the ugly:

no shocker here... miley's new buzz cut is revolting.
and what is with that stripper outfit? it makes her look large, and she's really not!

so, there you have it.
my analysis of current events that affect my life in no way...
what more could you ask for?

happiness is...

happiness is, happiness is,
different things to different people!
that's what happiness is.

(yes, i stole that from a camp song, and no, i'm not embarrassed.)

these are a few things that happiness is to me...
  • eating too much at a hibachi restaurant
  • truly surprising someone you love
  • enjoying a nice dinner with coworkers
  • reading through a sky mall magazine 
  • (& laughing hysterically at all the ridiculous things they sell!)
  • realizing it's 5:30 on a weekday and turning off my computer
  • watching LOST with my family
  • sleeping in on the weekends
  • eating delicious cookies even though i know i shouldn't
  • changing into comfy clothes (hello, nike shorts...)
  • walking on the beach - preferably w/ andrew ;)
  • & finding a blog that inspires me
...what is happiness to you???

dear kendahl, thank you for my wonderful new layout,
and for always inspiring me to post :)

dear victoria's secret fashion show, you are oh-so-entertaining.
