guilty pleasures or Oh, now I know why I am gaining so much weight

There are things you do as an adult that you do simply because you can.

You speed.
You smoke.
You drink.
You overeat.
You overspend.
You hold down the couch on your day off.
You play video games or watch movies for 7 hours straight while eating candy and junk food.

You get the picture.

The following are some of the things that I like to do...simply because I can.
I think of these as my guilty pleasures. I could easily live without them...but why would I want to?

I like to shop online, filling up my cart with the lavish things that I WANT, new shoes, shirts, name it and I put it in the cart. When I have had my fun I just close the browser and forget about it. I have realized over the past few years that I am an impulse shopper. Not with small items...with the big ones!
Totally dangerous. So this helps me to realize that I dont NEED any of these new items...only want.

I like to eat large, rich and totally thick and delicious cupcakes from Cake In A Cup - a local cupcake bakery. I go in to purchase two cupcakes; 1 for me and 1 for a friend.
Sike - they are both for me and I generally have them eaten by the time I get back to work.
I dont do this often, maybe 2 times a year, because they are crazy fucking expensive...and tasty.

I watch terribly trashy and stupid tv shows. I am in love with Gossip Girl. 90210. The Real World challenges. And many (many) others that you would just laugh at. Trash sells on tv.

Eating donuts. By myself. In front of the tv.

My favorite foods in the world: marshmallows, smores, cotton candy and fruit snacks. Seeing as there isnt a carrot or salad in the bunch...guess is no surprise why I am up 10 lbs. Seriously.

Hitting the snooze button each morning...about 8 times. Only to make me rush the ones I love to shave, shower, eat and get dressed - all because I wanted to sleep in. I only partly feel guilty about this b/c if they make me the owner of the alarm clock then everything goes on Schwartz time.

Having a small dinner so that I can have snacks later on.
Seriously this is sick that most of these are about food!

Okay, I am going to quit while I am ahead.

I need a beer. And some ice cream.
