Sensory Overload

“Every second of every day, our senses bring in way too much data than we can possibly process in our brains.” – Peter Diamandis

Sometimes I feel like my brain is on shuffle. There’s just so many things I want to do, people I want to see and places that I want to go. And let’s be serious… foods I want to try is always top of mind.

So, let’s take a few moments and go through all five senses based off of things I encountered today 😉

1. Sight

What I’m planning to watch tonight (or at least by the end of the weekend).

Fed Up

A friend’s mom let me borrow this a while ago and I keep putting it off. Mainly because I’m slightly petrified at what I’m about to be enlightened with.

And to put this cookbook to use.

Thug Kitchen

I bought it because I liked the title and was pleasantly surprised when I got home to find the humor, but more importantly the story behind the movement. I didn’t even realize the cookbook was vegan friendly, but hey, not complaining about that! I plan to make every recipe. No joke.

2. Hearing

A couple of weeks ago, I made a video with hundreds of pictures in memory of my cousin who had just passed away. One of the songs I used was a cover of Coldplay’s “Sky Full of Stars”. I don’t know why I’m so obsessed with this version by Boyce Avenue right now.

3. Touch

I’ve never been huge on wearing scarfs, but when we got the Soulscarfs at Pure Barre, I fell in love. Bonus: They donate 20% of the proceeds to charity. Look good and feel good.

4. Smell

Loving Ralph Lauren’s Midnight Romance that was given to me as a gift not too long ago.

5. Taste

I couldn’t stop thinking about Cookie Chips ever since I saw a Facebook post about a giveaway that they were doing. I stopped at Rhino Market on my way home to grab a bag. I don’t know why I love them so much.

If that wasn’t bad enough, I walked around the corner and saw these and had to give them a try. Unfortunately, I really like them. I love the assortment of products that you can find at Rhino Market (more to come on this place soon!)

Jalapeno

Oh well, I’ll do damage control on Sunday morning.

Work out

Have a great weekend!

  1. Let me know what you thought of the movie! I have been wanting to see it so bad but so bad I am afraid to. Honestly, I love mcdonalds chic nuggs. Yes I really do with their honey mustard sauce. I don’t eat them very often but when I do, I just like them. So do I really want to know what is in our food, probably not! But, I do have a strong desire to get and stay healthy and to learn to treat my body kindly. So let me know what you think. You make me smile!

  2. Giving up sugar is definitely something I need to do. Let me know how it goes for you, take good notes for me, so that maybe I’ll survive when (well, if) I give it up. 😉
