Ok, so you're never going to see me on an episode of Hoarders because this...
... will never be my life. I detest clutter way too much to ever allow this to happen. Purging makes me happy. Clutter makes me want to scream at puppies.
The thing is, I've realized that I do hoard certain things. Call it hoader tendencies if you will. And if you really think about it, you'll realize you have them too.

So I go through them all one by one and rip out the fitness routines. I then put them on my desk. Where they stay, untouched.
I don't even know what to say about this because, really, I'm not sorry about it. I get too good of a

And fun fact of the day... I'm taking over at The Blog Baton on Instagram today! Stop by to see what I'm getting into for the day.
