Rules of the tag: List 5 Obsessions/Addictions that you have, and tag back to the person(s) that gave you the award. Post the rules and tag an additional 5 people.
So here I go:
Magazines: I am obsessed with magazines. I subscribe to so many that I can't keep up with them and they stack up in all corners of my house. I'm still unpacking old issues from when we moved! But I honestly love them for inspiration, ideas, recipes, etc... And it's way cheaper to subscribe than buy individually
Clean sinks. Ok this may be a slightly weird one. But I have a hard time going to bed if our sink isn't empty of dishes. And we don't have a dishwasher- so this is definitely an everyday thing... and I hate doing dishes. I don't get myself :)
Like LA, I heart photography. I stalk photo blogs like it's nobody's business! And I'm always the camera gal on trips with our friends. Here's one of my own:
I could live in Anthropologie. The candles alone make me never want to leave and the Sale section always keeps me coming back for more
And last but not least, the coffee shop experience: Strong black coffee, pastries, good music, an interesting novel or the paper, and I'm hooked. And if this stop happens in the middle of a spontaneous road trip, that doesn't hurt either :)
Now I tag:

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies (notice I couldn't stop myself from eating them before I took the picture)
All you need is a box of this (Any brand is fine):
And 16 of these:
And you've got this gooey goodness. Just follow the directions on the box, and once you've poured half the brownie batter in the pan, throw in 16 of the Reese's Peanut Butter cups, and then remaining half of the batter on top of them. Then cook for the directed time and you're done!

Music is vital when I workout. It keeps me energetic, focused, and happy. I hate when I forget to bring my ipod to the gym. The background music is quieter. I'm not guaranteed to like it. And the fact that I can hear my dying gasps of breath, (and of the person next to me) doesn't make me feel pumped up either... I feel like I should shut my mouth, save myself and stop whatever the heck I'm doing.
This is why I get totally stoked when people share their playlists with me. I'm really into mine for the time being, but just like doing the same workout repeatedly, I know I'll get bored of it after a while.
My Cardio Playlist:
- Hot N Cold- Katy Perry
- Never Going Back to OK- The Afters
- Tonight- The Afters
- Munich- Editors
- So Alive- Ryan Adams
- Bullets- Editors
- Hero/ Heroin- Boys like Girls
- Here I Come- Fergie
- U + Ur Hand- Pink
- Age of Consent- New Order
- We Could Run Away- Needtobreathe
- Mercy- Duffy
- So What- Pink
- Breakin' Dishes- Rihanna
Any suggestions? What gets you movin?

Day 1 Tip: Log your bites. Knowing that I had to write down what I ate later definitely made me more conscious of what I was putting in my body. I started off good- Cup of black coffee, bowl of cereal with skim (Lactaid for me) milk, and a biscotti. But then came lunch. Danny and I decided to try out a new restaurant and well... I kind of had a meatball sub. But because it was so insanely filling and large- I only had half... which I think counts for something right? :) Come dinner time my senses had come back. Plus I had just worked out so I didn't want to ruin what I had just worked my butt off for. So I had one of my old favorites: Brown rice mixed with scrambled eggs, seaweed, and a little bit of low sodium soy sauce. May sound strange- but I've feasted on this filling and yummy treat ever since I was little.
