Why You Deserve to Cheat

Why You Deserve to Cheat

I’ve never been good at diets. It’s the basic dilemma that as soon as it’s off the table – that’s what I immediately crave. Fitness experts and dietitians have been throwing around the word “lifestyle change” for years and while there is some merit in that – it’s not easy to just wake up one morning and say “hey, I think I’ll be vegan today! Sounds like a good lifestyle change!” My natural instincts are more like “I Need Burger Now – extra cheese please!” – in my Wreck-It-Ralph voice. 

If eating properly is a lifestyle change, do you ever get to cheat? Moreover, is it actually healthy to cheat? Truth is that mentally, cheating on your diet allows you to have some space and something to look forward to. One of the biggest issues with dieting…

LA TRAVEL GUIDE

LA TRAVEL GUIDE

Last week, Sahir and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary in LA. We’ve never been there before and after visiting San Diego & San Francisco it had been on our list. We took advantage of the long weekend and headed to La La Land (I appropriately watched the movie for the first time on the plane ride here) to see that the city had to offer. I have to admit, it was a lot more spread out than I imagined, but we were able to see everything from Venice Beach to West Hollywood and in between. Here’s my travel guide for what to eat, do, and see in LA!

Atlanta Staycation at the Crowne Plaza Midtown

Atlanta Staycation at the Crowne Plaza Midtown

Unlike many Atlanta residents, I’m lucky enough to call the city my native home. I was born in the city and grew up in a northern suburb. I went to college at the University of Georgia and moved to the city with my husband (& now puppy!)

Food That You Must Buy Organic

Food That You Must Buy Organic

Stage two is the realization of how incredibly ridiculous the price of produce is. Stage three is a stern negotiation with yourself as to what you actually need and stage four is deciding whether or not organic foods are worth it. Once you get over the initial shock of what it actually takes to…

AUSTIN TRAVEL GUIDE

AUSTIN TRAVEL GUIDE

Austin, Texas seems to be at the forefront of a travel revolution. It’s a hipster town known for its food and up & coming tech scene, but the locals are on a mission to “Keep Austin Weird” – trust me you will hear that many times throughout your stay. I spent 3 days in this pocket of the south and had the best time. Here’s are all of the things that I did in Austin and I few that I saved for my next trip!
