10 Things About Me Thursday (◕‿◕✿)

giphy (9)

Wassup my pretty little ninjas. Another day, another dolla right?? RIGHT? Trying to keep motivated on this Thursday…. did a really great workout this morning in a bootcamp style class that was half on the treadmill and half on the floor doing stuff with weights and bands. Thought I’d make a list of some stuff that I’m feelin’ right now so you can get to know me better or something like that….

My Favorite Movie

I really thought Trainwreck with Amy Schumer was pure hilarity. Colton and I actually saw it twice…two days in a row. Cause we’re weirdo freaks like that. One of my hobbies is studying comedy….the setup, jokes, etc. It’s pretty fascinating but stupidly nerdy once you get into it. Trav is also a total comedy nerd! He knows literally every episode and storyline of “How I Met Your Mother”.

Favorite TV Show:

AHS!!!!!!!!!!!

HOTEL

AND

COVEN

Was too weaksauce to watch this before….but now that I’m into it I can’t stop!!! Currently binge watching the Coven season.

Favorite game

Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer

You guys…..I just bought it for my DS. I haven’t opened yet. I’m waiting for one of those rainy day kinda PMS kinda do nothing but sit on my ass kind of days to binge play it.

I was so obsessed with Animal Crossing New Leaf for awhile!!! My friends thought I was crazy because I would keep having to cancel plans on them because I had already promised my hippo neighbor that I would meet up with him at his house at 6:30 pm tonight or something of that nature and CAN’T just not show UP! That would be so rude and I didn’t want any of my neighbors to move away or be disappointed in me as mayor. Or we would be in the middle of sushi and I’d have to turn my DS on and show up to do something for one of the animals and everyone in the REAL world literally thought I was nuts. I will say though, my cyber friends thought I was DOPEEEE.

Roommates or Live Alone:

ROOMMATES!

Something You Struggle With:

Insecurity – it’s an ongoing battle people! But that’s for another time…

3 Apps I Love

ClassPass – If you are like me and love trying new types of workouts and constantly being challenged I recommend this!

Postmates- Humans delivering other humans anything humanely possible. It makes me even lazier as a human, but that’s fine by me.

Audible – I’ve been really getting into audiobooks lately. Again, it makes me lazier, as I don’t physically have to read with my eyes, BUT it does give me the ability to do multiple things at once. This week, I’ve been taking Jesse on super long walks around my neighborhood whilst listening to Mindy Kaling’s new book, Why Not Me.

Also, I’ve been snappin’ more lately. If you wanna see stupid stuff follow me: almakixo

What I do for workouts

Reformer pilates

Hot yoga

Bootcamp style classes mixing cardio with strength training

Dance in my living room.

Eat food really fast. So it’s like I’m burning calories. Yep. Cool.

Something embarrassing that happened to me recently:

I tweeted about this but I sprayed room spray directly into my eyes burning and blinding my eyes in the middle of Kitson yesterday.

What I do when I’m sad:

Eat Sourpatch kids, Cherry garcia ice cream and watch lots and lots of Korean dramas. (FYI, Boys Over Flowers is seriously the best) Also, going to Target and buying myself something fun to take my mind off of stuff helps. I’ll get a new book, a couple of yummy candles, or a pair of fun leggings!

Something I’m looking forward to for 2016:

Traveling. A lot of it is happening.

Fav food

Sushi 4 lyfe.

Now I have a question for you…..what is something that you are LOVING right now?? It could be anything…

Love yall

Nothin’ To Sweat About ✌

giphy (8)There is a woman in my workout class who told everyone today that she doesn’t sweat. Not a bit. Like ever. She did a triathlon and didn’t have one bead of sweat. She birthed 4 children without even shedding a drop.

This was halfway through the class mind you and I’m literally dripping buckets. My feet are sweating, my eyelids are wet, my hair is sticking to the back of my neck in a nasty spiderweb type of configuration. It’s the worst. I look over to my left and this hot mama is doing her burpee sets without one drop of perspiration. The girl ISN’T EVEN balmy.  The rest of us ordinary girls just look like melting popsicles on a hot day with stretchy clothes on. In between exercises we keep looking over to see if she’s lying. I thought I saw a slight glisten but maybe I’m mistaken. Why do I have to sweat????? And if I must, then why create people who don’t that make the rest of us look bad?

And then I thought about it. And I asked Trav about it. My favorite thing about Trav is he makes everything I stress about seem really insignificant and not stressful. He’s the best. He said back to me, “Honestly, if you never sweat ever then you would be really unhealthy…”

He’s right. And it made me think about when the times are that I do sweat.

When I workout. Which means I am living an active lifestyle and burning mad calories.

When I get nervous or excited about something. Which means I’m still getting FUCKING NERVOUS OR EXCITED ABOUT SHIT. This is good. It means I’m not completely jaded.

When it’s hot out. Which means I live in Los Angeles: one of the best places in the world that stays sunny all year round.

When you’re doin’ the nasty. NUTHIN TO BE ASHAMED ABOUT PEOPLE. I’d rather be sweatin’ my way through a good sex life then being all cold and dry in my bed alone.

So now thinking about it. I’m glad I sweat. It shows I’ve accomplished something, it is my body telling me, Bitch! you are uncomfortable right now, you’re in a new situation that is challenging you and making you stronger. You got this.

So remember:

Plus, people that sweat are known to have good metabolism.

Stay sweaty kids,

Ally
