I grew up in a equal family, mom and dad worked, they both cooked, clean, worked outside, and raise my sister and I. I have never wanted to be the media's version of a stay home mom, but if I did... this would be me.

Oh no... I'm a Feminist

Equal rights, for men and women. WOW the media's portrayal of the feminist has gotten out of control.

What to be for Halloween...

The only option is sexy. It's sad I have been looking for two weeks and the only options for women's costums is, sexy. Disapointment.

Wedding Obsession

After the start of this blog I am always looking at women in the media and I have noticed more and more, our wedding obsessed culture. Its all about the wedding not, getting married, I have so many friend that will admit, "I don't want to get married I just want the wedding." It is another profit maker, by making women feel as if they need to spend tons of money on the dress, the hair, the location, they ruin the hole point of the wedding, to get married.

Why don't Women say NO?

Women don't say no to sex in the media. I have yet to see a women say no to sex in the media unless it was on Lifetime. I really feel like men, don't get that women do say NO! Women are not sex machines, but you wouldn't know that by looking at our media...

House Wives

I get so confused, so many messages that are being sent by the popular shows contradict what many of us have been taught at home. We all want money, so we most marry for it, then we(women) are able to have a career. All these women have gained money and career because of their husbands, they send the wrong message to young girls about relationships and becoming successful.

Just a little clip from the Toddlers and Tiaras

Toddlers & Tiaras

This show is sick for the little girls, and worse, the mothers involved.

Short Skirts Everywhere

The thing I noticed most about my night out last night was, the min skirts and lack of clothes. These girls look like objects and that exactly what they wanted to look like. I like to dress up and look good and feel good about myself, but seeing these girls, well its sad.

We went out last night...

We went out last night, drank too much and I ate two hot dogs outside of the bar. I feel like crap and all I want to eat is McDonald's, I have spent too much money on, food and alcohol, but I guess, that what college students are supposed to do.

Why is it, that if there is a sale(BOGO, get one 1/2 off)I will buy if even if I don't need it. It is like I have been programed to shop! The adds are everywhere, and it isn't a good deal if you don't need it!

Smart or Hot

I can't help but wonder if I should go back to Blonde, do Blonde's really have more fun? Does hair color really matter? Ok, either I'm smart or "hot"... Thank you for giving me the either or option.

Should I feel this bad about eating McDonald's for dinner? Felling a lot of regret right now, as I am driving home and the skinny girls on the billboards are smiling at me.
Thinspiration- As an encouragement to further lose weight, members often exchange thinspiration (or thinspo): image or video montages of slim women, often celebrities, who may be anything from naturally slim to emaciated with visibly-protruding bones. Conversely, reverse thinspiration features fatty food, overweight or obese people intended to induce disgust and motivate further weight loss.
Thinspirational clips circulate widely on video sharing sites, pro-ana blogs often post thinspirational entries, and many pro-ana forums have threads dedicated to sharing thinspiration. Thinspiration can also take the form of inspirational mantras, quotes or selections of lyrics from poetry or popular music.

This is proof the the advertising for weight loss and diets has gone too fair.

And more...

Now all I see is the non-surgical weight loss solutions. Because my best isn't good enough.

Buying clothes; whitening teeth

Spent nearly all of my pay check at J-Crew, buying clothes for this wedding this weekend, not like I don't have enough clothes. I have been whitening my teeth so much I can't drink anything cold. Maybe I need to get professional whitening, I keep seeing ads for discounts on professional whitening.

The poor Children

After going to dinner with the boyfriends family, his sister all but 90 pounds, talks to me for an hour about watching her weight and counting calories. Kill me now, after I work all day the last thing I want to talk about is weight. It's a wonder her 4 year old daughter orders a Diet Coke, she is watching her calories too. Sick. And I am expected to raise children in this world one day?

I have noticed since I started this blog, that there are more ads and product placement for women, then for men. This cartoon made me think why is that women and men perceive themselves so differently.

Fight the Temptation

After seeing the billboard on my way to work, of a young women for cellulite removal, I will not eat those bagels in the conference room, must stay away. I will have my weight control oatmeal ew.

50 Habits of Naturally Thin People

Waiting for my coffee to make, I read, in Reader's Digest, I come across "50 habits of Naturally Thin People," and realize I have no habits of a "Naturally Thin Person"...
6. Coffee saver Instead of pouring that 1/3 cup of half-and-half (a whopping 105 calories!) into your mug, replace it with the same amount of 2% milk. Saves 60 calories.... too late already pored it.
5. Be a ballerina As your coffee drips, stand sideways, put one hand on the counter, and lift the outside leg straight out in front of you, keeping it extended.... I barely have time to make my coffee let alone work out while I am waiting on it.
I must work out tonight, when I get home at 8 p.m. I have to find the time.
