1. "Ugh fruit has so much sugar omg it will totes make me fat." NO. Fruit is very high in water and has little to no fat (with the rare exception of things like avocado… which is God’s gift to man so we should eat that anyway). The sugar it contains is natural sugars which are good for you.
  2. Speaking of sugar, it has way less than things with added sugar. 1 whole cup of strawberries has about 7 grams, while 1 can of soda has about 30 grams on average. I’ll take my strawberries with some lemon squeezed on that because there simply isn’t enough fruit for me in just the strawberries.
  3. Have you ever tasted pineapple? Yeah. That shit is delicious.
  4. Fruit smoothie? You mean the healthy delicious treat that is the perfect amount of smooth and cold and is just the icing on the cake of a hot summer day? Yes. Please direct me to the nearest Jamba Juice.
  5. Oh, so many pretty colors. I think even dogs can see that beautiful piercing pink of dragon fruit.
  6. Antioxidants. All the antioxidants.
  7. Weird is good. There are weird fruits. See this list for proof.  
  8. There is lots of dietary fiber in fruit. Who doesn’t like pooping regularly AMIRIGHT?
  9. There is no cholesterol, extremely low sodium, and low calories.
  10. It all just tastes fucking delicious and if we are so paranoid that something as healthy as fruit is making us fat I am probably just going to leave society and live in the wilderness amongst the fruits. I will live with the fruit and I will eat it and be happy because it’s good and lets all just have a great day and eat some rambutans god bless.

Number 10 is perfect.

Weight loss is a process. It is not a steady decrease in weight, there are both ups and downs. The only way to see results is to stuck with it.

So… I’m in a relationship!!!

…and it’s totally been throwing off my healthy eating and fitness stuff. haha. While I’ve been contra dancing every friday and learning how to waltz on wednesdays that’s about all that’s been going on. I spent all day yesterday walking around at Awesome Con in DC which was AHMAZING, but my boyfriend (still feels crazy being able to say that) and I spent all day today lazing around. And all I’ve had to eat today were pancakes & a granola bar. I guess we’re in that “honeymoon phase,” where basically all we want to do is cuddle and make out (that burns calories, right? haha).

Soooo this week I am making sure I get the necessary nutrition and I’m going to try and be more active. I think I’m going to try and get in some yoga tomorrow and hopefully a walk with my dad. And I told the boyfriend the next time we hang out we’re going to do something outside of the house. He’s in love with biking so that might be in the plans next weekend.

And lastly, sorry for the lack of updates! Besides having a boyfriend (first one ever :O) A LOT has been changing in my life. On that little suspenseful note I will probably post later about these changes, cause it’s time for me to head to bed (a.k.a. reblog a lot of things and then actually go to sleep.

GOOD NIGHT TUMBLR! It feels good to be back :)



No seriously. It’s natural sugar that your body craves instead of man-made sweets. Spread the word. Fruits and their sugar are good for you.

Just had to have a “no I swear fruit is actually good for you,” conversation with my coworker today. Whoever is educating people in the “evils of fruit sugar” really needs to stop. Like yesterday. Eat some fruit.

I’m back in the land of MyFitnessPal!

Working on getting back to being aware of what I’m putting into my body. I feel like MFP is always pretty helpful when trying to get back on track. Add me! My username is Chocabookaholic.


This Week

-I’m starting a series of posts called “this week” where I post goals/plans for the upcoming week.

-I’m going to do yoga at least 3 times.

-I’m going to have one green smoothie a day

-I’m going to focus on core strength

-I’m going to creatively write for at least 15 minutes a day (because I freaking miss writing).

That is all for now. Good night lovelies. Have a fantastic week :)



Did you ever realize how much your body loves you? It’s always trying to keep you alive. It’s making sure you breathe while you sleep, stopping cuts from bleeding, fixing broken bones, finding ways to beat the illnesses that might get you. Your body literally loves you so much. It’s time you start loving it back.
