Never Will I Ever

Today, we’re going to play a game.

Never Will I Ever. No, although it sounds strikingly similar to the ever popular “Never Have I    Ever”, I assure you this will not result in some of your (or my) deepest darkest secrets being revealed to all of you.

Ready? Here we go.

Never Will I Ever have the long, thin legs of a super model. It’s not in my genes (lets face it, I’m 5’6″, with some junk in the trunk, and long thin legs are just NOT physically possible for me)But the legs I do have are strong, they can squat and deadlift more than my body weight, and they carry me around in this beautiful life of mine. 

It’s just not in the cards for me (or most of us). But that’s ok!

Never Will I Ever have long, thick, luxurious hair. Again, not in my genes. Considering my hair has been the same wispy, fine texture since I was about 5, I’m guessing that’s not changing any time soon. I’m not going to lie, I wish I could change this, but I can’t, so I must accept it. Since it’s so fine, it IS easy to style and dries quickly… I guess that’s a plus, right?

Bah.. As if.

Never Will I Ever be a master chef… But I CAN bake with the best of ’em. Pie Crust challenge? Bring it on! 

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie I made last year. Boom!

Never Will I Ever be able to read and follow a map… That part of my brain just doesn’t exist, I’m afraid. But I’m not afraid to ask for directions, and that’s what GPS is for anyway, right? 🙂 

Never Will I Ever eat 100% clean, 100% of the time. I’m sorry. I have my vices, I love indulgences, and I see no harm in the occasional treat if I’m otherwise healthy and keep it all in balance. But I will eat clean 80-90% of the time, and to me, that’s enough. 

Crack Pie (Yes, that’s really what it’s called) from Momofuku in NYC. Yes, it’s as good as better than you think it is.

Never Will I Ever be able to sing the way I wish I could… But I will also never stop singing in the car, because what is life without a little car dance/song? 

Never Will I Ever complete a marathon, or win any road race I enter for that matter… But I will have fun in every road race I do sign up for, especially if it is filled with obstacles, fire, mud, and/or body paint! 

Never Will I Ever be able to go back and change things in my past that are questionable at best… But I will be able to learn from all of my experiences good and bad, and can improve myself by learning from the ups and downs.

Never Will I Ever act my age. Acting your age is overrated. But I will have a damn good time in the life I lead 🙂 

Never Will I Ever be able to express myself as well through spoken word as I do through writing. But that is why I write this blog! 

Your turn. Go!

  1. Never will I ever have blonde hair! It just will not work with my features. Damned if I didn’t try HARD to make it work a couple of times though. haha!!

    1. Ha! I have tried many hair colors…Blonde is the ONLY one that works for me!

  2. Never will I ever be able to wear stilettos, because my feet just don’t have the ability to point that far.

    Never will I ever be able to wear stilettos, because I like my running shoes too much anyway.

    I love this post!

    1. Thanks!! Ah, stilettos… It’s a love hate thing for me 🙂

  3. This post is AWESOME!! That pic of you jumping over the fire is pretty badass as well 😉
    Never will I ever buy a piece of clothing over $200– I’m too much of a cheapskate/bargain hunter! 😀 I think the most I’ve ever shelled out for a clothing item was $100 on Nike Frees haha

    1. Thanks girl! I’m with you there — I’m all about bargain hunting, I get it from my mother!

  4. Never will I ever be able to dance well to “club music”. Whenever I try I feel and look stupid. But thats ok 🙂

    1. I am of the belief that it doesn’t matter what you look like when you dance… as long as you’re having fun, you’re doing it right 🙂

  5. Haha I can relate to so many of these!! I did the Warrior Dash too, although I do not have as awesome a picture as you! I love singing, even though I’m terrible and my husband tells me his ears are bleeding 😉

    One thing on your list I do have is thick hair, but let me tell you, it is a curse. I brush my hair every night before bed, but I still wake up with dreadlocks. Yes, dreadlocks! It’s painful and frustrating having to spend 10 minutes every morning brushing out all the knots.

    1. Haha, I might take the dreadlocks over my little baby wisps!! Also good to know I’m not the only terrible singer out there who belts it out anyway 🙂

  6. Awesome post – just linked it into my Monday post…might have to steal the concept!

  7. I love this post!

    Never will I ever be a vegetarian. I love fruits and vegetables, but a world without steak, bacon and hamburgers is not a world I want to live in. 🙂

    1. Thanks! And YES! I’m with you on that one… Veggie is just not for me, I crave burgers too often 🙂

    Never will I ever have a flat tummy. Slowly over the past 5 years I have come to grips with it (PS thanks for always telling me I look great and that we all have certain spots), but I do realize that although I will never have a flat tummy, it doesn’t mean I need to give up or only do the 50 ab exercises to make it “better.” Strength more than super defined muscle is my 30 year old motto now. Stupid 30 messing up my body 🙂
