Longer Winters = More Time For Bikini Bootcamp, Spray Tan Building, and Gwyneth Paltrow Gooping

It’s the most beautiful tiiiiiime, of the year….

People’s Most Beautiful 2013 Sneak Peak (People) – Somehow, Gwyneth Paltrow nabbed the cover after doing a whole lot of nothing this year.  I guess she got the Robert Downey Jr. bump thanks to Iron Man 3?

Snow at the end of April got ya down?  Well, it should.  This is ridiculous.  I had planned to be fully committed to my outdoor jogging and biking routines by now, but you can forget about that.  Maybe this is the Universe’s way of telling us we need extra time this year before bikini season.  I can’t say I disagree…

Confessions of a Spray Tan Artist (MSN Lifestyle CA) – I was going to post something about the art of spray tanning, because yes, it has crossed my mind and seems like the honorable thing to do for my high-risk skin.  Then, I found this article, about a woman who’s job it is to tell celebrities and socialites that their asses are in fact, not larger than normal.  Spray tanning how-to can wait for another day.

Shape Up: Bikini Boot Camp Plan (Lauren Conrad) – Okay, I can’t say I’m a Lauren Conrad fan.  At all.  But I know I’m not the only one out there trolling the Internet for an “emergency” summer boot camp plan.  I like hers because it’s all in one place, it’s basic enough to follow, and not as crazy overzealous as some of the things I’ve found.  Plus, if you get bored, you can click on “Lauren’s Book Club.”  That’s right- she reads, too!

Loaded Cauliflower Casserole (Louanne’s Kitchen) – I saw this after not one, but two of my fantastically gifted chef/aunts posted it on Facebook.  I trust it for 3 reasons: 1- they both thought it looked edible, 2- it’s low carb/gluten free, and 3- CHEEEEEEEEESE.  Close your eyes and it’s mac and cheese.  Bada bing, bada boom.  I also support maybe cutting some of those heavy cream type ingredients for lower cal things.  I’m sure it tastes just as good, maybe 20% less chance of heart attack.

Spring 2013 Running Shoe Guide (Active) – It’s rare that I get excited about shoes.  That’s the only 1% of Americans I will probably ever qualify for- the 1% of women who don’t give a crap about shoes.  Except for boots.  And it turns out, summer shoes.  Then I realized that I should maybe be more focused on what’s going on my feet for the many workouts I need to start doing.  I call them sneakers, Michigan calls them “tennis shoes.”  Wrong again, Michiganders.  Who really plays tennis while wearing these neon hot kicks?  Right.  1% of people.
