Well hello there. Long time no see my friends. I think it’s only fair that I explain myself….
The truth of the matter is that when I started my blog I was beyond passionate about it and hopeful that I could reach people who struggled with the same things in life that I did, and still do. After a couple months of blogging, I started to really question if I should really be writing a “healthy living blog” I have no interest in waking up at 5 am to run 15 miles, I don’t eat oats that often (hehe), nor do I come up with tons of innovative recipes. What really makes me qualified to be writing a blog?? I guess there isn’t really an answer to that question. The only thing I can really tell you is that I am passionate about food, fitness, and fun. I think that reading so many other blogs about these people who run a marathon every month, or are doing triathlons kind of made me feel like a phony. I think this also led to my blog posts not really being, “Me.” I felt pressured to try and post new eats all the time, and if I didn’t work out one day I felt guilty, maybe didn’t post all the nights on the town…Well things are changing here at Hungry Dancer. I don’t want to give up blogging because I love it a lot. But I’m just gonna say screw it and write what I want, when I want. I’m 21, I love going out and having a good time with my friends, but I also like to eat as healthy as I can, dance my a$$ off, and maybe throw in some fun workout classes.
What to expect from the new Hungry Dancer
(Edit: It may appear I posted a picture of me on the toilet…but NO! I was just sitting on it with the lid CLOSED! HAHA)
– Consistent posts daily. (Mostly about whatever my little heart desires 🙂 )
– Me being, me.
– More about my crazy shenanigans
– Fun healthy versions of my favorite foods. (Pizza, wraps, pasta…etc)
Well now that I’ve talked your ear off, lets move on!! I am feeling more inspired then ever, and I hope you’re with me. Some things will stay the same: My yummy food, lots of pictures, and my grammatical errors (sorry I was always better at math than writing.)
If you didn’t know already…I have an addiction to the grocery store. I get beyond excited to grocery shop..it’s kind of scary. Well last night after work, my roomie and cousin Sara and I, went to Ralphs. We may have gone a little crazy….(-$180) Even better than grocery shopping…….knowing how many possibilities you have for breakfast and lunch!! I practically flew out of bed because I was so excited for breakfast. Since it’s pretty warm here in LA, I went with a parfait!
This baby started with plain Fage 0%, then I topped it with raspberries and Kashi Go Lean Crunch. Yum and yum! Parfaits are such a delicious healthy breakfast, I’m a fan. Not to mention the countless mixes you could make!
I would also like to share my new obsession with you….
This stuff is the bomb.com!! No joke I could drink 15 bottles of this a day!
I’m currently working all day, and then I’ll be dancing tonight! Getting to dance so much makes my life that much better. No joke, I live for it.
Since that’s all I’ve got for you on the food front so far, I’ll leave you with some fun pics from the weekend!! Enjoy.
Me and my girl Lauren!!
My adorable parents at a dance event!
I ate The Fitnessista’s breakfast cookie dough cereal for the first time…..Wow oh wow!
My cousin and I at the LA film Festival. Her movie the Inkeepers was INCREDIBLE!! LOVED IT SO MUCH!!

Well that’s it for now!
