So how can a clean eating diva such as myself have the ballz to buy all this shitty food?
Food is fun. I use the tasty-healthy foods for fuel and health, but sometimes I just like to have a little sinister fun and buy some crap. Years of practicing moderation (and finally getting it right over time) has given me the ability to enjoy crappy food indulgences without going overboard. I trust myself around sweets, so every once in a blue moon I allow myself to
go buck wild enjoy these kind of treats.
The Apple Jacks and Devil Dogs are for me. That is all.
The cookies, doughnuts, cinnamon buns and Fruit by The Foot are for the Greedy Family. I don’t eat their stuff. I don’t like their junk food choices.
I tried to do the cold turkey thing with the family and force them to eat healthy all the time and totally restrict their junk foods, but that didn’t work. There was bitching and whining and uprisings. So while I still (sometimes) buy them the crap they request, I’ve been very successful at slowly introducing healthier options into their lives that stick.
In the midst of the junk food crap you see pictured, I’ve already got the Greedy Family enjoying healthy options like brown rice, fresh salmon, whole wheat instead of white flour products, Greek yogurt and fresh fruits, where they refused that stuff relentlessly in the past. I let them have some crappy foods as a compromise as I continue to slowly (and unforcibly) encourage better food choices. It’s been a process.
As for me? I’ve already had multiple bowls of Apple Jacks and plan on a Devil Dog for late night snack (gasp!). Once my treats are gone, they’re gone. It’ll be weeks before I enter into this kind of greedy glory again. This is how I have my cake and eat it too – all without gaining any weight.
So tell me: what’s your own greedy-eating philosophy?
Hey guys! I’m feeling kinda random today, so I wanted to let you in on some news and stories I came across that are definitely worth reading (and the last story is a real doozie). Have a great weekend!
Vegan Sweets On Parade
So what if it’s vegan and you “don’t eat that way”. These sweet creations from spabettie.com are beautiful to the eyeballs and no doubt happy on the taste buds. There’s New York Cheesecake and Chickpea Cookie Balls to name a few. Go check out the parade!
Garmin Unveils New Tool For Multi-Tasking Fitness Buffs
It’s the new $.99 Garmin Fit app for Android and iPhone. Do we really need another app that tracks time, distance, calories, etc.? Decide for yourself. Learn more about the Garmin Fit app.
CDC Director Arrested for Child Molestation and Bestiality
“Dr. Lindsey and her boyfriend allegedly involved the child during sex, and DeKalb County police claim they discovered photographs of Lindsey performing sex acts on a couple of her pets… Some of you may wonder why I’ve chosen to discuss this story. Some may think it’s in poor taste and doesn’t belong in a newsletter about health. However, I believe it’s relevant to be aware that someone in charge of your child’s health is allegedly engaged in child abuse. Her actions raise serious questions in my mind about her level of concern for the health and well-being of children in general.” Read full story at Mercola.com.
My favorite pair of workout shorts is from a brand called Marika. So I figured I’d go to Marika.com to see what else they have to offer. I thought it was pretty cool that right alongside all the other models on their website, there were also some curvy gal models in the mix on the same sports bra page.

I didn’t have to type “plus sized” into a search box or click on some type of “plus sized category”. This is the first time I’ve seen curvy gal inclusion while shopping online for fitness clothes. Has anyone else noticed this? Is it a new trend?
We all need sports bras, dammit. I’m glad Marika gets. I also saw this same type of curvy gal inclusion on Zappos.com. Hopefully more brands will recognize a curvy gal’s need for workout clothes, making it more convenient for them to find what they want and have more choices.
Too bad I’m still in need of some new sports bras. My favorite bras are infested with fitness funk that’s so powerful, it can longer be washed out.
So what do ya think about this one? I think I’m gonna buy it.
What’s your favorite sports bra brand? Lay it on us. We need to know!
