Fun Facts Friday - Things I Won't Forgo

I almost didn't post for Fun Facts Friday. I really couldn't think of anything random or fun for the day. That is, until I had a twitter convo with my friends Jess and Jo.

They're getting snowed in my Nemo and there was some mention of having plenty of wine on hand. And of course justification of drinking the wine while snowed in - all the way down to it having antioxidants and not wanting to get sick while snowed in.

That convo reminded me of a post. A while back, another blogger friend (Christine at Love Life Surf) had done a New Year's post about the things she wasn't changing for 2013.

So, put the two together and you have Fun Facts Friday - Things I Won't Forgo.

Wine - There was a time when I actually hated wine. Jason worked in a restaurant and we could go to big wine tastings and I snubbed my nose and stood at the champagne table. Man I missed out.

Pizza - Yes, I know it's a calorie, carb bomb. I do try to make it healthier by loading up on the veggies. At home I make my own wheat crust and we use Daiya. When we go out we do light on the cheese. That helps right?

Blue Moon - I don't drink a lot of beer now that I have wine in my life. But there is something so refreshing about a cold blue moon with orange wedge, especially after a long run.

Cheese Dip - Again, horrible for you. But I can't control myself. And I'm absolutely a-ok with a vegan version too. I have a few recipes that we've made many many times.

Peanut Butter - Thank goodness this one isn't just horrible for me. Of course, I might have a problem with portion control.

I can give up sodas (been easily a year or more since I've had one), don't care about cakes, ice cream doesn't live in the freezer, no bags of chocolate, even gave up my Cheetos years back. But the above items? My Achilles heel.

What are some things you won't forgo no matter how bad they might be for you?
