Abs are made in the kitchen. But so are cupcakes.

At this point, who hasn't heard the expression "abs are made in the kitchen"? It's on Pinterest, Instagram and any health-related blog out there. But can I just point something out? Cupcakes are made in the kitchen too. and pizza. and ice cream. and bacon. and all of the things that taste like heaven.

I love to exercise, and I'll be the first to admit that I love the aesthetic benefits that come from it. I have an internal battle every once in a while about whether or not I should really buckle down, cut the crap(py food) out and unveil a little bit more of the muscle that hides beneath the layer of desserts. After many of these internal battles, I've come to the conclusion that moderation is my friend. I know abs are made in the kitchen, but personally, I have to live a little. And for me, living means savoring a dessert every once in a while or going for the cheesy potatoes when I "should" opt for the asparagus. 

I seriously mean it when I say more power to all of you who eat lean, clean and green 100 percent of the time. But as for me, I'll take my abs with a side of cupcakes.
