You know those “What I Want to Be When I Grow Up” essays you were assigned in sixth grade? Some kids wrote about wanting to be a rock star, a teacher, a mailman, a professional Sega Genesis player, an Olympic Pog champion…and you sat staring at your blank paper.
With the recession guilting me into sacrificing unnecessary luxuries (oh, multiple, daily Starbucks runs, how I miss you!), I’m wondering how others are handling their own sacrifices. Our daily indulgences have now become something to shake a finger at, but many industries are still thriving by playing into our addictions.
I love to have a big, hunka meat right in my face, teasing and seducing me. I'm talking about dinner, you dirty birdies! My fave plate of anti-vegetarianism is without a doubt the beloved meatloaf. But that's one meal that can easily turn bland and pack in the saturated fat like Brit Brit on a junk food binge.
When I tell people that my boyfriend is in the Army, I usually am met with the same response: “Oooh really? I don’t know how you do it. I couldn’t be with someone in the military.”

Remember Natalie Dylan, the girl who wanted to auction off her virginity? She had a degree in Women’s Studies and herself a feminist. Kind of contradictory, huh?

Hitched or Ditched poses the ultimate ultimatum to a rocky couple: Get married in a week or end it for good. Viewers are drawn to the drama and suspense of whether a couple will say “I do” or be publicly humiliated with rejection.

A trip to the campus bookstore is an exercise in self-assurance. When you spot an intriguing book that you cannot wait to read cover to cover, you may or may not have the cajones to bring it up to the counter. Why, you ask? Hmm, maybe because its entitled The Going Down Guide: Tongue Tips and Oral Techniques for Men and Women!
Did you do your part to celebrate Earth Day this year? Maybe you showered with your man to conserve water or skipped the cardboard sleeve on your Starbucks to reduce paper waste. As for me, I went to a showing of DisneyNature's new documentary film, Earth.
Health guidelines and facts are constantly changing as we learn more about the human body and what we need to stay strong. To maintain optimal health, you need to keep up to date with the newest in fitness, nutrition and medical research. Check out the latest headlines about that unique body of yours:
The sun is shining, the breeze is warm and Spring is in full swing. Who wants to waste such a beautiful day slaving away on a treadmill indoors? Research shows that sharing your sweat session with Mother Nature decreases your stress levels and ups your calorie burn due to the varied terrain and fluctuating temperatures. It's time to lace up your Nikes and head to the nearest park.
It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. And in the game of Bad Habits, you will always come out a loser. As I laid in a tanning bed, I thought about how this bad habit was going to affect me in the long run. Even though I love the immediate benefits of this vice (golden, sun-kissed skin!), I can't help but worry about my future as a leather-skinned freak.
It was Sunday night, which means a spread of Diet Root Beer, a chopped green apple, a turkey sandwich and my TV tuned to VH1's Tough Love. Last night we saw Steve challenge the girls to be low maintenance.

When you see a perfectly sculpted star on the cover of a magazine, don't let yourself be fooled. They may look like they pray to the treadmill gods each day, but they are also just as human as we are.
The ladies of Tough Love were back last night and, as on the first two episodes, sexy Steve had a sexy lesson up his sleeve. He instructed each girl to set up their own photoshoot where they demonstrated what "sexy" means to them.
