....Lose weight, exercise — good health can be such a chore. But indulging in guilty pleasures may be good for us. One of my favorite things to do is spending the day in bed--wearing pajamas and reading a good book. It doesn't happen very often, but it's something that gives me pleasure.

My pleasure (no guilt involved) is a home made milkshake - 1 1/2 containers of Ensure (because I need to gain weight), a blob of almond butter, and enough vanilla ice cream to fill the blender. Mix, pour into a huge glass, add a straw, and enjoy. Mmmmm!
My guilty pleasure is putting our favorite comedies, new and old, on DVR and watching them when my wife and I need a good laugh. From shows like The Goldbergs to Everybody Loves Raymond we find our escape from the news and drama of the day. We feel a little guilt for spending time in our chairs watching TV but there's always time for a good walk after a good laugh (or more).
