Although I try my best to lead a healthy lifestyle, I have a few setbacks…duh, who doesn’t?
1. Eating too many sweets.
2. Spending too much time on the computer.
3. Laying out when it gets sunny.
The first two are inevitable with this blog, but the last one I have no excuses for.
In high school, I tanned in tanning beds for prom and it’s honestly really hard not to anymore. Not just because I like to get a tan, but because in the winter time I just need a little “sunlight”.
Nowadays, though, I sick solely to the good ol’ outdoors. I can assure you that I was outside the very first day it was sunny and above 60 degrees and loved every minute of it! It just feels so good. Sometimes I listen to music, but most of the time I just relax and enjoy the time to myself.
Today, I indulged in all 3 guilty pleasures and I don’t feel guilty at all.
P.s. I just thought I’d give my desserts some credibility. These are my friends…just eatin’ a few cake balls.
And Kellen being a killjoy. 😉
