Recent Obsessions

Lately, I've been finding things that I really like. Once I like them, I tend to stick with them for a while. It can be anything from a favorite movie or TV show to a new moisturizer or shampoo. So I thought I'd let you know what some of my recent obsessions have been. I do have a habit of over using things though and getting sick of them, but as for now I'm obsessed with these things! What are some of your obsessions right now? Let's keep it clean folks...enjoy!

The Pacific - This new mini series from Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks has me tuning in to HBO every Sunday night. I love all things WWII and this does not disappoint. If you are behind, you can catch up this Wednesday @ 8 pm. They are replaying the first 3 episodes that have aired so far, plus I believe you can always get them On Demand if you have that capability.

Spartacus: Blood and Sand - This show is absolutely crazy! The pilot episode was not very good, but I stuck with it and I'm glad I did. Just a warning, this show is violent, bloody and can contend with soft core porn. I have not had problems convincing Tim to watch it with me. We even got his bosses hooked on it a few months ago. When they visited this weekend we all watched it together along with our neighbors. This show is available on Starz and plays Friday and Sunday nights at 10. It is also available On Demand as well.

New Moon - I have been watching my New Moon DVD religiously. If you read my previous post about my pre-order, you'll know that I got the Target 3 disc special edition which is amazing! It has the most bonus features of any of the special editions and it came with a film screen from one of the scenes from the movie (which I don't really care about). Walmart came out with the Ultimate Fan Edition that contains 2 minutes from Eclipse which I found on You Tube and watched it there.

Lubriderm Advanced Therapy Lotion - I decided this winter that I wanted to try a new lotion. I had been previously using Nivea Smooth Sensations and I didn't like that it took really long to absorb, tended to be greasy and sometimes after mixing with my skin didn't smell all that good. Then Shape magazine recommended Lubriderm Advanced Therapy and I've been in love ever since. With my skin type I usually only use lotion in the winter and when I'm sunburned. I don't need to use it every day, but this stuff makes me want to use it daily. My skin has never felt better and the lotion absorbed super fast.

Caress Evenly Gorgeous Body Wash - Normally I'm not one for soaps that smell like food; I like clean, fresh scents. Another recommendation from Shape magazine was this body wash. I was really board with the current brand I was using and thought "oh what the hell". I ended up really liking it! It's cookie scent isn't too strong and it has karite butter and brown sugar to exfoliate the skin. I'll definitely be sticking to this one for a while.

Yoplait Delights - I had always wanted to try these low calorie yogurts and just never did. Then my neighbor bought them and didn't like them so she gave them to me and I have been in love since! I had been eating Activia for the longest time and I just got so sick of them. Plus I get weird with chunks of fruit in yogurt. So far I've tried all of them except the lemon (it doesn't interest me at all). I now constantly have them in my fridge and I don't feel bad eating them since they are only 100 calories. They have become my perfect morning snack.

Reebok Run Tone Sneaker - I really wanted to try out the new sneaker fad that claimed sneakers could help tone your legs and butt. I thought the Skechers version was hideous so I ended up getting the Reebok Run Tone's which is a step up from their Easy Tone line. The Easy Tone's are strictly for walking only, the Run Tone's are better for running (duh) and wearing them to work out in. They are the most comfortable sneaker I have ever had. I wear them to the gym and to walk the dog. I don't recommend them for sports because they can be a little bulky. I absolutely love them and have already seen a slight difference in the tone of my legs, not so much my butt. The Run Tone's only come in the color I have shown or white with teal; I chose the black ones.

Lipton Green Tea - To help with my weight loss goal I stopped drinking coffee in the morning and switched to hot green tea. Coffee has been proven to increase stress levels and add to hunger pangs throughout the day. I have 1-2 cups every morning sweetened only with honey. The tea and honey helps to speed up your metabolism throughout the day.
