Karate Kid

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Remember this guy?


He was my first celebrity crush, back in the late-80’s.


I also loved Corey Haim, Scott Baio, Joey McIntyre, and Kirk Cameron, and, of course, I hung their photos from 16 Magazine and Tiger Beat all over my bedroom. I probably stared at them while listening to my Pocket Rocker. I was cool like that. 😉


For breakfast, I enjoyed a lovely jar of oats this morning.


Again, I had to rescue this mostly-empty peanut butter jar out of the garbage. I had a little “talk” with my husband this morning.



In the mix:


And, as always, I enjoyed a glass of iced coffee with vanilla soy milk.


Question of the Day

Who was your first celebrity crush?



  1. Jon Bon Jovi, I cried hysterically at school when KIIS fm reported he got married. You know, because I really had a shot with him at 10 years old. In college I was OBSESSED with Dave Matthews, posters all over my walls, ceiling, etc. In college my roommate had a poster of JTT on her wall (kind of as a joke but we both thought he was hot), which was AWESOME considering he’s a good deal younger than we are.

  2. My first celebrity crush was actually the guy from Early Edition. I don’t even know his name now. I had a thing for older men…

    And my first girl crush was, of course, Xena Warrior Princess.

  3. ralph was my first crush too – and i’ll know you’ll be jealous when you hear this – i met him a few years ago. we were at an awards show and i babbled like a teenager. he was very sweet. i was also in a play with tamilyn tomita, who played his love interest in karate kid II, which was so surreal b/c all i did when i was a kid was wish i was her so i could kiss ralph macchio.

    i did a whole post recently about the new karate kid movie and how i’ll refuse to see it.

  4. Joey McIntyre. HANDS DOWN. I remember sitting on my front porch when I was young and blowing a kiss out into the air and saying “send that to Joey!” mmm I wonder if he ever got it 😉

  5. If we’re being honest here…Billy Ray Cyrus. I had SUCH a crush on him when I was, like, five years old! After that I really had a crush on the son from the John Candy movie “The Great Outdoors.” Then I moved on to greener pastures, with JTT. Obviously.

  6. Ralph Macchio was a little before my time, although when I discovered him in my later years, I found him quite dreamy. My first celebrity crush was a tie between three (I can’t remember which I liked first!): Leonardo DiCaprio, Devon Sawa and Jonathan Taylor Thomas (JTT!!). I’m surprised my mom let me buy the magazines with the pin-up posters, but she did. Probably because she remembered what it was like to crush on Shaun Cassidy in her teenage years. 🙂

  7. Leonardo DiCaprio (I saw Titanic 11 times in the movie theater for him!) & Lance Bass from N’SYNC (before he came out)

  8. I can’t believe no one’s said Neil Patrick Harris/Doogie Howser! Not only was he adorable, but he was smarter than adults, was a doctor, AND was an early blogger. (Remember how he used to write in his diary on his computer at the end of each day? Oh yeah, Doogie was a blogging pioneer!)

    But yeah, I may or may not have drawn several pictures of him when I was 9. And I may or may not have hung them all over my room.

  9. My first celeb crush was Joey from friends! I remember having a YM (yep so old lol) and he was on the cover. I’d bring it to school everyday and all of my friends and I would drool over the pictures lol! Oh to be a little girl again would be so fun! No work, all play lol!

  10. Ohhh, this is hi-larious. So many good choices here … but I think my first celebrity crush was Leonardo DiCaprio when he was in Romeo and Juliet. I was in seventh grade. I was a late bloomer when it came to celebrity crushes, I guess! 😉 But, oh, I loved him for awhile! A group of about 15 girls and I went to see that movie for someone’s b-day sleepover and we spent hours before hand pretty-ing ourselves up to go to the moive theater. Cause, yeah, Leo was going to see us through the screen and all … ha ha, too funny!

    Oh man, I think I had a crush on Nicholas Cage for awhile too, yuck! Ha ha! City of Angels, what can I say? lol

  11. My first celebrity crush was Andrew Keegan… I can’t even remember what show he first starred in, but he eventually had a role on 7th Heaven (by then I’d moved on to Justin Timberlake – who is still my crush to this very day). I, too, would cover my walls in posters from Teen Beat! 🙂

  12. My first I think was Micheal J Fox…when i starred in thoe Return to the future movies. One of the biggest crushed I had was Jordan Knight. And I also had my walls plastered with their faces all over.
