What I've been up to

I wanted to talk about things that have taken over my life recently.

I've started a diet called Medifast on March 5th 2013. I still have problems sticking to plan sometimes which is a real fail on my part. I do love this diet and I truly believe it works even though I have no self control sometimes. Medifast has taught me to control my portion sizes and I drink a lot of water a day. 

Along with this diet, I joined a gym April 24th 2013. The gym I joined is Lucille Roberts. There are tons of gym choices in NYC. Why did I chose this gym? 

1. It's cheap. I pay a little over $16 a month and a $15 biannual fee.

2. There aren't personal trainers walking around. I been to a few gyms and I always feel like the trainers there are like vultures, staring at you, about to swoop in and tell me I'm doing something wrong and I should buy there classes and its the right thing to do and charge me an arm and a leg whilst sounding righteous and not buying their package will only be harmful to me. Now I have to leave a caveat after saying something like that. I am sure not all personal trainers are like that but I have not had good experiences with any of the ones that have approached me and this is purely my experiences.

3. They have a ton of classes. I am not the type of person who can go in and run on a treadmill and work on machines. I don't have the discipline and frankly it bores me and I won't be able to do that in the long run. They offer 45 minute classes like Zumba and toning classes which I love. You sweat and ache but it feels amazing.

4. It's an all women's gym. Now I didn't care about going to a gym with guys before but I have noticed that I feel more relaxed at my gym. Also there isn't the horrid gym smell. Not sure if the absence of males has anything to do with it.

Somehow this post turned into gym talk and almost sounds like a promotional post lol.

So why have I been gone for over 2 months? Simple. I am lazy. I am also losing interest in beauty. I still love to put on makeup and going into Sephora and swatching colors and browsing. But after years of purchase after purchase the excitement is no longer there. I buy something and chances are it will sit on my shelf or a drawer when i get home. There hasn't been much excitement for me. I still browse the displays every time I go into a drugstore but there is nothing new. Nothing that makes me yearn. Luckily I appropriately named this blog. When I first started I was passionately obsessed with beauty. I will include other things that I am loving. Hopefully the won't turn too many of you off.
