Oh the Stars

14 Apr

I’m sorry for my absence. It’s safe to say that I am a person that never gets stressed out. It takes a lot for me to worry about a situation or to even cry. This week, however, has been entirely stressful with piles of homework and a scholarship application due tomorrow. Also, my senioritis has kicked in to about full blast.

I’m feeling less stressed now though. My application is done and my homework is finished. Not that much longer until I graduate. Whew.


Like any American, I read the tabloids. Apparently I believe Charlie Sheen affects my day to day life because I have to pick up those gossip magazines any time I am in the store just to get my quick fix of Lindsay Lohan or what Katie Holmes is wearing this week. As for the Royal Wedding, can it just happen already? I’m sick of those beautiful people and their beautiful accents.

Any time the tabloids feature a celebrity workout and diet, I pick it up. I don’t know why I care, but I do and I find it genuinely interesting how they stay fit. (FYI, I am not on a diet or looking to lose weight. I just like reading celebrities’ diets.) Granted, some probably don’t eat, but for the most some are actually rather healthy.

I adore Cameron Diaz’s body mostly because she is tall. I’m only 5’2. I also really admire her arms.

Katy Perry claims she stays fit by, of course, working out. Additionally, Katy Perry has everything in moderation and indulges every now and then (like we all should).

Okay. I have a confession. I am obsessed with Kardashian family, especially Kim. Kim has one voluptuous body and she is absolutely gorgeous.

“I never aspired to be a size zero. Although one time I tried on a dress with a size-8 label when I thought I was a size 4. It turned out it was a UK size 8, so actually it was my normal size. But it made me think, “Why do I even care?” I couldn’t care less if it said 14. It’s just a number. “

Then there is the lovely Anna Paquin from True Blood, which is one of my favorite shows.

“Anna is a very easy going, fun person to be around,” says the True Blood star’s long-time trainer Clay Burwell, owner of High Performance NYC gym. “She is also an incredible athlete who can run ten miles a day, box for over an hour and then do Pilates – all before 11 AM. She truly loves exercise, and to her, it’s just fun.” 

 I am also a huge fan of Emma Roberts. I recently read her interview in Women’s Health and was just really impressed.

“Sexy when I was younger always meant boobs, and I’ve never had boobs in my life, so I always felt that sexy was out of the question for me,” the Scream 4 star tells Seventeen‘s May issue. “I used to really want to be that kind of voluptuous girl, and I’ve just kind of embraced that I’m not.”

And obviously I appreciate any celebrity that runs…

Yeah, Scarlett Johansson is wearing Vibrams


Thank goodness it’s almost Friday. I have some plans for the weekend too. My mom is going out of town (holla party at my place) so Saturday night I will be seeing Scream 4 with some friends. I see frozen yogurt and thai food in my future. Then, Sunday I am going to a running expo/meeting at Lululemon. I’m nervous since they are doing a short run and I don’t want to run if I hurt at all. My foot for the most part has been feeling better and not so painful. Maybe like a 3/10.

Now on to some honorable eats. Sorry for the crappy cell phone photos.

Ice cream + cottage cheese + cereal + apple cake

Are you obsessed with celebrities like me?
Any favorite celebrities?  

How do you de-stress?

    I love people magazine. My celebrity fitness idol is jessica biel. She looks ripped, in a good way!
    How did you like the cherry pomegranate yogurt? I packed it for lunch tomorrow!

    OMG, there has been so much fuss about Scarlett Johansson in the photo. Who cares about her stomach, she is running in vibrams, and she is gorgeous!

    And yeah, I totally read gossip magazines!

    Have a good weekend 🙂

    I actually don’t read tabloids too too much. I like to see celebrities working out but I’m more obsessed with models I think.

    • lifttorun April 15, 2011 at 1:12 PM #

      I tried getting into America’s Next Top Model, but I never can. I like certain models though.

    I hope you are feeling less stressed! I have been so unbelievably stressed this week as well… Grrrr

    I’ve been doing a lot of yoga and meditation lately to chill out.

    • lifttorun April 15, 2011 at 1:13 PM #

      Good idea! I am planning some yoga in this weekend for sure.

    I loveee cameron diaz’s body (and her too, haha). I just discovered this blog called katemiddletonforthewin.tumblr.com and its hilarious.

  8. Jenny April 15, 2011 at 11:21 AM #

    I think it’s fun to watch celebs and see what kind of training they do. I hate when they get too skinny though and call themselves “curvy” makes me laugh.

  9. Sweet Cheeks April 15, 2011 at 7:52 PM #

    I am with you; I find it so interesting as to what celebrities eat/ do for workouts. I guess I find that interesting with anybody though since I read food blogs. 😀 I never realized that Cameron has GUNS! Her arms look incredible.

    Love the icecream and cottage cheese combo!

    I destress by exercising or baking/cooking in the kitchen. Talking to my husband also helps me destress. 🙂

  12. megan @ the oatmeal diaries April 15, 2011 at 11:58 PM #

    Glad to hear your stress has gone down! I love stalking celebs… Reese is always one of my faves and I LOVE Rachel McAdams! All your food looks yummy. I love the kashi choco pretzel bars and the mojo, although my mojo bars are in different packaging! Maybe they switched it up and I haven’t noticed yet!

  13. Stephanie April 16, 2011 at 8:37 AM #

    I also like looking at celebrity diet&exercise regime, and especially Victoria Secret models. I personally like Miranda Kerr (although she’s super skinny); she has a blog of her own and I love how she encourages girls to have healthy mind and to embrace oneself 🙂 It was personally a huge inspiration for me.

    • lifttorun April 16, 2011 at 12:46 PM #

      What’s her blog? I totally want to check it out.

  14. Matt @ The Athlete's Plate April 16, 2011 at 4:33 PM #

    Loving the booch 😉

  15. AntosDoesLife April 16, 2011 at 5:13 PM #

    OHHHHH my. Lance Armstrong is a hottie. I’m actually not a fan of Scarlet, for some reason she just seems trashy to me.

    But I do love True Blood too! 🙂

    • lifttorun April 17, 2011 at 8:42 AM #

      True Blood is so addicting. Gahhh. I wish I had HBO to watch it all the time.

  16. Jess April 16, 2011 at 6:58 PM #

    I love reading about celebrity’s “health” articles in mags!! Thanks for the updates 😀

    I LOVE Jessica Biel’s body. She’s so rock solid! And you can’t forget Jillian. 🙂

    • lifttorun April 17, 2011 at 8:40 PM #

      Jillian is on the new Shape magazine I think.

  20. my little celebration April 18, 2011 at 4:12 PM #

    Fun post :D. I used to read all of the celeb mags but it started taking up too much of my time. So now I just get my fix by peeping at all the covers when I’m in the grocery store :D.

    My favorite celebs are Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore. Cameron for her amazingly athletic body and Drew for her quirky, hippie personality :D.
