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

What I Learned Today From a Model

IMG_9910

Today I sat next to a model in hot yoga. She walked in with her perfect top knot, BPA free water bottle and the most gorgeously wonderful Bambi legs in existence and every girl’s face instantly froze like,

“Bitch, please please pleaseee don’t sit next to me. Please. PLEASE!!”

Then they look up to the heavens and apologize for the bagel they had for breakfast. No more carbs after today. Tomorrow’s the day. Officially. I always start diets on Mondays.

Of course the model (let’s call her Top Knot Tammy) lays out her mat right next to mine. All the girls relax. I die inside.

Even her damn mat is skinnier than mine. My mat curdles in shame. Slowly I morph into the downest of dogs (so cheesy, but really this is what I thought. You try being me.)

Excuse me Top Knot-T, hunny, Ms. Independent? GO AWAY. I come here to help my anxiety not give me an additional Bambi leg complex. Trust me, I’ve already got complexes on complexes. I came her to learn the facets of deep breathing, not deep loathing.

Tammy girl, has the Taylor Swift body mixed with the exoticness of one of those brunette VS models. She was Beyonce booty with the effortlessness of Kendall Jenner walking through Coachella in that long jean shorts and vest look. She just sorta waltzes by.

Let me compare it in another way.

I’m 5’1.

She’s 5’11.

She has Bambi legs.

I have Bambi’s sadness.

She’s a model.

I am not (do selfies count?).

Today after yoga, I went and got the biggest, fattiest, chocolate muffin I’ve ever bought in my life. Like I literally thought of the idea in Chavasana (buying a big and fatty chocolate muffin) and then I did it ($3.50 at Whole Foods). I didn’t give a fuuuuu.

Because sometimes you just have to indulge and not give a crap that there’s a supermodel next to you. You gotta face the facts that there are supermodels in life and they are there to tear you down. Pastry companies actually build them and send them out into the world just so muffin prices will rise. But YOU gotta rise up girl, you gotta RISE UP LIKE PASTRY DOUGH.

IMG_9913

You gotta realize that Bambi probably never eats chocolate muffins after yoga, but then again she probably does. Because only DNA mixed with model girl genes could possibly shape her legs like that.

So watch out Bambi legs, because yes, I am jealous of you and yes you are enough to make me go I kissed a girl and I liked it, and yes you probably live that jet setting Saudi Princes buying you gold watches, exotic puppies, love, affection, 10 ft. yachts and wait….what was I talking about?

Make me a Meowdel,

Ally
