Happy girls are the prettiest girls


10 day challenge, day 1

Rachel over at the Mean Girl Diaries is participating in the 10 Day Challenge that is going around blogland, and I needed some blog ideas so I figured I would give it a shot! So the challenge goes like this: take 10 posts {as we all know I am usually not a daily blogger} to complete the challenge. 10 secrets, 9 loves, 8 fears, 7 wants, 6 places, 5 foods, 4 books, 3 films, 2 songs, 1 photo of yourself.

So here we  go with 10 secrets. Why there had to be so many secrets, I don't know. I think I would have preferred 10 films and 3 secrets ;)

10} I hate cleaning. I will wait until something is close to disgusting before it finally triggers this insane compulsion to clean everything in sight.
9} I would much rather be lazy than exercise, and eat baked goods and junk rather than healthy foods. I know, for shame right?! It's a constant struggle to choose the healthy life I have decided to live. 
8} I struggled with an eating disorder through most of middle school and high school. It was more a mental battle than a physical one, but still...ugh. Through lots of support from friends and family, prayer, and accepting myself as I am, I have been able to develop a healthy mindset about my body. I know it will always be a struggle for me, as those self-hating thoughts are little demons that like to pop up when you are at a low point. 
7} Sometimes I feel like walking Marlo is a burden, even though we have no yard to let her out in, and she needs her walks.
6} I'm more a cat person than a dog person. I do love the pup though, cats are just a little more self-sufficient. See above.
5} I get bouts of craftiness, but lack the drive to finish projects, so I've often bought all the supplies, or started a project and then abandoned it.
4} I'm a sucker for super hero and comic book movies.
3} I sucked my thumb and had a blankie until I was 8. I loved that blankie, it was actually one of my mom's old slips that was mint green with lace on the straps that I found when I was a baby, and had to have in order to sleep each night. 
2} I'm terrible at giving gifts. I'm not one of those people that gives the best, most thoughtful gifts, instead, I am usually in a rush to find one, then settle for something less than perfect. Sorry friends!
1} I hate surprises with a passion. More accurately, I hate when people tell you there's a surprise, and then you are left in anticipation.

Well there you have it, only a little embarrassing and anxiety riddled. Now your turn to share your secrets with me! I wan't to see a bunch of 10 day challenge posts in my gReader app soon!
