Apptastic: 30 Day Squat Challenge

Do you love squats? I frikken love squats. They’re my favorite “workout.”

But I don’t do them enough and as often as I’d like I need to. My current ass is testament to that, and it’s not like I’m doing anything about it. I’m super lazy these days and it doesn’t help that I have a desk job. I can also come up with 88 different excuses on why I can’t dedicate 15-20 minutes a day to working out. (It’s a talent.)

So praise high heavens for apps like the 30 Day Squat Challenge!

Food Diary: Diet Diva

I’m back to dieting! I’m doing it primarily because I’ve been feeling like shit and I’m tired of it. A bit of weight loss would be a great side effect, though!

Thankful Tuesdays // 1

It’s so easy to get caught up in negativity.

Heavy traffic on our way to the office can have us cursing and bemoaning this stupid city we live in.

A snafu at work can unleash a slew of curses, driving us to the point of wanting/threatening to resign (like it’s just that easy).

Spotty cellphone reception and shitty data services can have us berating powerless individuals just trying to do their jobs.

I’m not saying we should trivialize our problems or our experiences but most of the time, we tend to forget how good our lives actually are. I’m very guilty of this and I’m trying to change that.

Every Tuesday, I’ll be listing down three things I am thankful for, as a reminder that “hey, things aren’t so bad.”

This week, I am thankful for:

1. My body. I gained a lot of weight in the last few years and I’ve had people on the internet (haha) try and make me feel bad for it. Fortunately, I’ve come to accept and love my body— fat rolls, lumps, and soft fleshy bits.
