Working On My Fitness: Quest Bars

Back in January I joined crossfit.
I didn't know much about it, other than you workout like crazy and their members tend to follow the paleo diet.

After months of being confused by the jargon that accompanies crossfit and committing social suicide on the regular at classes, I've finally got the hang of it.

Every few months my xfit gym does a paleo nutrition challenge and I decided to try it out since it was around my birthday and I wanted to slim down.
It sucked alot for the first couple of weeks until I learned how to make paleo desserts...which I'll of course post later.
questnutrition.com


Anyways, we were allowed to have protein shakes and bars as well as quinoa..
So this challenge was technically light-weight paleo.
The results were good and I lost 5lbs and some body-fat and such within the 7 week challenge. Of course, I cheated here and there but still..I was pleased by my results.
I'm now on a pseudo-paleo maintenance plan and it's been rough to get back on the horse.

It does help when you come across good food that's approved for the challenge and with that..I've discovered Quest bars.

I'm currently obsessed with the cinnamon roll and cookie dough flavors.

Seriously.
They're amazing!
I got mine at GNC, and with my gold membership a package of 12 was around $23. Yes, it's pricey but worth it when you want a treat without cheating and sacrificing your waistline.

Drake Watch: Drake Disrespects Diddy, So Diddy Clocks Him

********* Update**********
 Since this blog was originally posted, we have an update on why Diddy felt disrespected and it all has to do with the beat on Drizzy's 0-100 single...so he punched him in the shoulder over a song.

TMZ:

Our sources say, producer Boi-1da had given both Diddy and Drake a song to record more than 8 months ago. We're told Diddy sat on the song, which frustrated Drake because he wanted to record it. So recently Drake recorded the song on his own and it did well, which pissed Diddy off.

Diddy saw Drake at LIV Monday for the first time since the song was released. Sources close to Diddy say he confronted Drake, who just blew him off, and that's when Diddy said, "You'll never disrespect me again," and then punched him.

We're told Drake ended up at an ER because in the ruckus he hit his shoulder and exacerbated an old injury.


Sooooooo.......

You've probably seen the tweets and the hilarious memes over the Diddy-Drake altercation at Art Basel in Miami.
If you haven't, please search #drakevsdiddy on Twitter and Instagram...NOW!
Drake, the sensitive rapper we love to poke fun of and Diddy- the OG Hypeman....got.into.a.fight.
Are you dying of laughter yet?
urbaninformer.com
Rumors were swirling that the fight was over Diddy's girl, Cassie.
However, according to TMZ, that isn't the case.
The celeb gossip site says the whole fight was caused by Drake disrespecting Diddy and the Bad Boy mogul wasn't having any of it.
So what'd he do?
Clock Drake outside of the MIA nightclub LIV.
"According to our sources, Diddy confronted Drake just outside LIV nightclub -- where they'd both been partying -- and the topic of conversation was business. During the tete-a-tete, voices were raised and according to eyewitnesses ... Diddy said, "You will never disrespect me" ... and then clocked Drizzy. "
*BOOM*

Now....here are the memes, which is the best part about this fracas.




You're welcome.....

              Since I've seen the movie poster with just the glass slipper, I've been waiting for the new Cinderella movie.
This is definitely a different one than Drew Barrymore's version once upon a time ago.

Lily James (from Downton Abbey), is young Ella.

This Kenneth Branagh-directed film, also stars Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden and Helena Bonham Carter.
As you can tell by the trailer, Blanchett is the evil step-mother and Bonham Carter is the fairy godmother.

Solange Knowles Gets Hitched

The Knowles family broke the internet this weekend and they didn't have to go nude to do so.
Beyonce's little sis aka Proud Family song Solange married her longtime boyfriend Alan Ferguson in New Orleans this past weekend.
Knowles, 28, and the 51 year old music video director have been dating since 2008.

Everyone usually hates that Solange is constantly in her sister's shadow, but that's changed over the past few years with her singles, DJ career....oh, and elevator-gate.

However, this wedding surprised me because it was so fashionable. Knowles strayed from tradition by wearing a chic cape with her gown, then sporting an uber-glam jumpsuit.
It was the most gorgeous hipster-chic wedding.

As you can tell, Solange had an all white everything bridal party and it looked incredible. The wedding festivities kicked off on Friday with a movie night . They watched the movie the couple watched on their first date, Mahogany. 
Then on Saturday, the couple biked to the ceremony....yes biked.
How adorable can they get!?
After the ceremony, the couple and guests lit sparklers and celebrated around the French Quarter. 
No, Bey didn't perform...
But Solange and her son Juelz performed their own choreographed dance to No Flex Zone

Kim Kardashian Goes Full Frontal for Paper Magazine #NSFW

Yes, I've never heard of Paper Magazine until the record stopped on November 11th...that was until we saw the full monty the day after.
Kim Kardashian, Paper Magazine
Kim Kardashian, Paper Magazine
I can't believe Yeezy allowed her to do it!
The cover of the magazine shows Kardashian exposing her infamous bare-behind with the words "Break the Internet" which she chose to hashtag on social media. Funny, because social media was on fuego after these photos were revealed.

Of course, some celebs chimed in. Like Glee's Naya Rivera whom some of accused of copying Kardashian West's steez in the past.
All in all, it's just what Ye likes, controversy.
Turns out Kim did the shoot while in Paris for Fashion Week. She wasn't paid for the shoot because basically, the magazine couldn't afford her. However, it was the opportunity to work with famed photog Jean Paul Goud.
" Mickey Boardman, editorial director of Paper Magazine, told Yahoo! Style "Kim’s attitude was, ‘If we’re gonna do it, let’s really go there.’"
"He continued, 'And it was her idea to take off her clothes and show more than her butt. But we didn’t say, ‘Let’s do a cover with your butt hanging out.’ She said she was willing to take her clothes off and one thing led to another.' "

Although, the memes have been hilarious.
Here's my favorite:

RHONJ Coouple Teresa and Joe Giudice Sentenced to Prison

radaronline.com

It's a sad day for the Giudice family.
I really didn't think they were going to jail!
 

Real Housewives of New Jersey stars, Teresa and Joe Giudice, were both sentenced in their fraud case.
Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice was sentenced to 41 months in prison, while Teresa was sentenced to 15 months.
The judge staggard the sentences so there was one parent to stay home with the couple's three girls: Gia, Gabriella, Milani and Audriana.

"I fully take responsibility  for my actions," Teresa read from a letter in court, per the New Jersey Record. " I deeply love my family... My four daughters are my life."
Originally Teresa was facing a term of 21 to 27 months.

Prior to Teresa's sentencing, husband Joe was sentenced to 41 months in prison.

In addition to the prison terms,  each also were sentenced to two years of supervised release, and ordered the couple to forfeit $414,588. Additionally, the judge fined Joe $10,000 and Teresa $8,000

Teresa, who once famously said that living in a house somebody else lived in was "gross" along with her husband pleaded guility to bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud back in March. Joe also pleaded guilty to tax evasion. 

Teresa has been ordered to surrender Jan. 5, 2015, and Joe's term will not begin until she is released.
Joe, also faces the possibility of deportation. He immigrated to the United States from Italy when he was a baby and didn't know he wasn't a citizen.

"I stand here humiliated before the court and my family and society," he said in court before Judge Salas lowered the sentencing boom. "I disgraced many people, including my wife and four daughters. I take full responsibility for my actions. I promise to be a better person."

Back in 2010 Joe had a run in with the law when he got a DUI. His lawyer Miles Feinstein told the court that Joe appears to have a drinking problem, the Salas said she will "recommend a facility" for him to go to within the Bureau of Prisons.

The federal case started when the couple filed for bankruptcy back in 2009. Back then the couple was accused of failing to list their income and assets. They also failed to list the $110,000 they were promised when they signed on to the Real Housewives franchise.

Joe was also charged with five counts of failing to file income tax returns on roughly $1 million in earnings from 2004 until 2008.
 
"The indictment returned today alleges the Guidices lied to the bankruptcy court, to the IRS and to a number of banks," U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman said in a statement when the couple were charged. "Everyone has an obligation to tell the truth when dealing with the courts, paying their taxes and applying for loans or mortgages. That's reality."
Today after court, Fishman told reporters at a press conference, "The fact that she's a celebrity played no role in her punishment."
The couple will sit down with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live this Monday at 9 p.m. for their first interview post-sentencing.

No matter how you look at this story, it's just unfortunate for the couple's 4 young daughters.

Amber Rose Files for Divorce From Rapper Wiz Khalifa

Welp, here's another one.

Yup, a year ago and now it's over.

Amber filed for divorce on September 23rd. The couple began dating in 2011, and got married on July 8, 2013.
The timing of the split is surprising given that just two weeks ago, Amber took to Instagram to wish Wiz a happy birthday with a romantic message:
Happy 27th Birthday @mistercap I'll love u forever.... Hope this year is an amazing one for u sweetheart ❤️

Though on Tuesday, she did post a this cryptic tweet:
While Wiz on the other hand, gave no hints on their sudden split on his social media accounts, when he tweeted about "positive energy" Tuesday.

Lauren Conrad's Wedding to William Tell in US Weekly

usweekly.com

Basically America's best girlfriend got married over the weekend and I couldn't be happier.
I mean, I've been following her since her Laguna Beach days.

On the cover of this week's US Weekly, Conrad shows off her Badgley Mischka gown.

And of course Conrad- the Paper Crown and LC Lauren Conrad - designer was hands-on for the entire process. "She was involved in the process the whole way," Badgley told the magazine. "She had a really clear notion," he added. "And she stuck to her guns." She would fly to NYC every few months to work with the designers and even took the reigns with alterations.

At one of the meetings at her condo,  she decided to ditch the sleeves on her dress. "I felt like I couldn't pull them off," she explains in the issue. "I don't have super long arms." She joked that when the Badgley Mischka tailor was hesitant she threatened to take matters into her own hands. "I was like, 'Sir, if you don't cut them off, I'm going to use my kitchen scissors and cut them.'" Not to worry, it didn't come down to that!
In the end, Conrad walked down the aisle in a two-tone Chanitlly and Alençon lace dress with crystals, pearls and baby glass beads. With a 10 ft. train!

According to Us, Conrad summed up her gown with three words: Glamorous. Classic. Simple.

I expect nothing less from good ol' LC.

Rihanna Theme Song Pulled from "Thursday Night Football" Amid Ray Rice Issue

http://music-news.redigi.com

Just last week, CBS and the NFL announced that Thursday Night Football would be debuting a new theme song by Rihanna.
However, all that changed after new security footage emerged showing former Baltimore Raven, Ray Rice, beating his wife Janay in an Atlantic City elevator. Since the release of that video, Rice has been indefinitely suspended from the NFL and cut from the Ravens.

Since all of this is going on, CBS decided to axe Rihanna's pre-recorded performance of Run this Town ft. Jay Z. The network also took out a comedy sketch that was set to be part of the show opener. 
Instead, CBS This Morning anchor Norah O'Donnell will host a pre-game show newscast.

"It's important to realize we are not overacting to this story but it is as big a story as has faced the NFL," CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus told SI.com. "We thought journalistically and from a tone standpoint, we needed to have the appropriate tone and coverage. A lot of the production elements we wanted in the show are being eliminated because of time or tone."

 Rihanna is a victim of domestic violence and the Baltimore Ravens play the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight.

Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and other celebrities Fall Victim to Nude Photo Leak

empireonline.com
If you haven't already heard, celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Ariana Grande and Kate Upton are among the many whose private nude photos were leaked online by 4Chan.
I'm not going to provide a link to the site, because I personally do not agree with giving them free publicity.
4Chan is a site many of you have never heard of.  According to the Washington Post, 4Chan has been described as the “darkest corners of the Web” by a New York Times writer and the “ninth circle of Hell.”
On Sunday evening, the website dumped numerous nude photos of celebrities allegedly from their phones. Personal photos and videos that were thought to have been deleted apparently weren't completely as these hackers got their hands on them.

Jennifer Lawrence's camp responded with: “This is a flagrant violation of privacy,” they said in an email. “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”

Kate Upton's lawyer says, “This is obviously an outrageous violation of our client Kate Upton’s privacy,” said Upton’s lawyer Lawrence Shire in an email to BuzzFeed. “We intend to pursue anyone disseminating or duplicating these illegally obtained images to the fullest extent possible.”



According to Ariana Grande and Victoria Justice, these photos are fake.

I personally agree with Lena Dunham:

Brangelina Finally Wed and it's a Family Affair


People.com
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have finally tied the knot. Of course, in true Brangelina fashion we knew AFTER the fact. The couple tied the knot in the chapel of Château Miraval, the family's estate in the French village of Correns.
Photos of the big day are published in the latest issue of People and it turns out it was very much a family affair.
Hello! Magazine
While only 20 friends and family were in attendance to the August 23rd French nuptials, the couple's six children played a very major role.

According to the Huffington Post:
"Eldest sons Maddox (13) and Pax (11) walked their mother down the aisle, while Zahara (9) and Vivienne (6) threw flower petals, and Shiloh (8) and Knox (6) served as ring bearers. The kids allegedly helped write the vows and Pax baked the cake!

Meanwhile the children also literally put their mark on their mother's gown. Never one to conform to expectations, Jolie donned an ivory satin Atelier Versace gown adorned with dozens of her children's designs and drawing sewn into the back of the gown and veil, by Luigi Massi, the master tailor at Atelier Versace.

Brad and Angie also honored Jolie's mother, the late Marcheline Bertrand, by engraving a dedication inside the chapel in their home. Bertrand died in 2007 after a long battle with ovarian cancer. Jolie along with her brother James wore jewelry of their mother's. Angelina wore a flower ring and James wore an angel pin. Angelina also wore a golden heart locket with her mother's photo inside.

"Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late.
This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time."
-       Mara Buxbaum, press representative for Robin Williams

"This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin's family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief.

Beyonce and Nicki Minaj Collaborate for 'Flawless' Remix

Hold the phone!!!!
The internets have been a-buzz lately with rumors that Bey and Jay are on the outs, then there was talk about Nicki pushing back her Anaconda release because she was doing a duet with Beyonce.
And now....it's here.
The remix to ***Flawless.
She even addresses elevator-gate:
“of course sometimes shit goes down when it’s a billion dollars on a elevator.” 

So what does that mean exactly?
Basically, her and Jay are worth about a billion dollars together....throw in the money Solange made for the Proud Family theme song and that's about accurate. She means that she, HOV and Solange are like any other family and of course shit goes down when you have people with strong personalities in an enclosed space together.

 This photo comes just days after reports surfaces that Disick was sent to the hospital last month after suffering from alcohol poisoning.

Actor James Garner Dies


buddytv.com
For the younger generation, you'll remember him from The Notebook and from 8 Simple Rules.
Your parents and grandparents will remember him from Maverick and The Rockford Files.
Actor James Garner died of natural causes Saturday evening at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles. He was 86 years old.
The Associated Press reports that police responded to a call around 8 p.m.  and confirmed Garner's identity from family members. Garner had suffered a stroke in May 2008, just weeks after his 80th birthday.
 "His quick-witted avoidance of conflict provided a refreshingly new take on the American hero, contrasting with the steely heroics of John Wayne and the fast trigger of Clint Eastwood.    It was in 1957 when the ABC network, desperate to compete on ratings-rich Sunday night, scheduled Maverick against CBS's powerhouse The Ed Sullivan Show and NBC's The Steve Allen Show. Maverick soon out polled them both. At a time when the networks were crowded with hard-eyed, traditional Western heroes, Bret Maverick provided a fresh breath of air. With his sardonic tone and his eagerness to talk his way out of a squabble rather than pull out his six-shooter, the con-artist Westerner seemed to scoff at the genre's values. "
"However in his 2011 memoir, The Garner Files, he provided some amusing and enlightening clues, including his penchant for bluntly expressed opinions and a practice for decking people who said something nasty to his face -- including an obnoxious fan and an abusive stepmother. They all deserved it, Garner declared in his book."
 "When he received the Screen Actors Guild's lifetime achievement award in 2005, he quipped, 'I'm not at all sure how I got here.' "
