Eek! I still haven’t packed for our trip to Asia, so this post will be short and sweet. It’s still worth a read because the links are cool and I’ve got a sweet discount code at the end of this post. After all, you guys really are the best ever, and deserve some end-of-week savings, right?
Mel’s A Big, Bright, Shiny Star
I love this new video by my pal Melissa Joulwan on how to peel a grapefruit the correct way. It’s so soothing and illuminating. I want her to make more videos, don’t you?
Go buy her new cookbook, Well Fed 2, and make Thai Pink Grapefruit Salad pronto. And did you see that she’ll be doing a joint signing with me and Diana Rodgers on January 2nd? It’s almost to capacity, so go RSVP now!
Yay for Russ!
I’ll admit it: I’m a celebrity gossip junkie, and am an avid reader of People Magazine. But this week, I have even more reason to be impatient for the mailman to deliver this newest issue ’cause my friend Russ Crandall's featured in it!
Now I won’t have to hide the Sexiest Man Alive issue under the couch anymore when company comes over!
There’s a lot of posts about how most fitspo pictures are extremely photoshopped, and I think it’s great that people are spreading the word on that. But can we also talk about how the models are usually posing in ways that are just uncomfortable and unrealistic for real life? This applies to regular peoples’ progress photos and before/afters as well. Now, I totally understand standing in a flattering pose—it’s normal to want to look your best, and I do the same. But when you look at other people’s photos, remember that they don’t look like that all the time. In the top left photo, as well as the one right below it where I’m sitting, I’m sucking in and flexing as hard as I can. I’m not even breathing. Um, who walks around like that all day? No one. A picture only captures a moment. Not reality. The photos on the right, and the bottom three pictures? That’s reality for me. And it’s way more comfortable. The end.
Hey look, some fitspo images I’ve found on my dash in the last few hours
Lets get ~*~*~fitspired~*~*~ lollll
I would really recommend people to check out her photoshop tag - you just might find your fave fitspo photos to be actually just a result of photoshop.
I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!
