Confessions of a Heath Magazine Junkie

by Nicci on 08/28/2010

As I pack up the apartment, more and more magazines pop out!

Kitchen, living room, guest room, bedroom, shelves, drawers… they are everywhere.

Why do I love health magazines?

fitness tips, healthy recipes, success stories and the latest fitness equipment.

(As I write this post, Chris comes from the bedroom with a stack of running magazines).

I’ve been searching for this lost stack for awhile now!

ps. My love for magazines does not come at a high price. I found this website, where every week they have magazine deals. All my subscriptions cost under $2.00 a year!!

What’s your favorite health magazine? What’s your favorite section that you love to read?

I have a hard time throwing them away too, maybe I’ll host a book & magazine swap party, after settling into the new place!

I am a junkie too!! I buy almost every single one each month (some on subscription) Health, Fitness, Whole Living, Glamour, Self…love them all! Problem is I used to blow through them on the elliptical, but I’m doing mostly outdoor runs now so they just pile up! I have a hard time taking an hour JUST to read a magazine, but I hate letting them go to waste!

i also have all those mags!!! I love reading the snacks and food section..I SHOULD be trying all those strength training moves out but I don’t! Except for the kettlebell one in women’s health!

I do the same thing!! I have about a million magazine subscriptions–I try to read through them once to cut out recipes and workouts I like and then recycle them right away so they don’t stock up ;)

I am such a junkie for magazines…I usually give them a read over once and then Im done. but I love them ALL

I used to have a magazine addiction! Last year I did a major purge and didn’t renew anything. SO much less mail!

Tiffany @ Simply Shaka August 30, 2010 at 7:08 pm

Ooooooh, thanks for the link! I love health magazines and am so bad about throwing them out. I love the recipe section and stories of success, they always so motivating!

i totally read a ton of magazines! i think it just continually reminds me to stay on track and gives me ideas

That is so funny! When I moved I had stacks and stacks of health magazines. I now try to tear out the pages I want and recycle the rest to prevent it from happening again…My fave right now is Clean Eating. I love the recipes!

Quisha August 30, 2010 at 11:27 am

Yeah, stop being a tease! Give it up girl!! Haha. I get tons and tons of magazines. I could save some money! ;)

I go to for magazine subscriptions! Check it out ladies.

fittingbackin August 30, 2010 at 9:32 am

hehe I love to pick them up too! My fave is Fitness, but I also like Shape and Self!

i’m a junkie too! my favorite is women’s health.

Jess @ Black Cat Kitchen August 30, 2010 at 12:41 am

I have the same problem – mostly cooking & health magazines. I never get to read them though! I swear I have a stack of Saveur and Wine Spectator to go to the library that I didn’t even take out of the plastic wrapping. :(

That’s funny. I’ve been cleaning out my place in preparation for a move (I figure it’ll be easier to pack if I plan ahead and clean things out) and there is this HUGE stack of magazines sitting in my bedroom. I keep saying that I’m going to go through them and just save the articles that I love but then I get suckered into reading the whole thing and forget that I’m supposed to be organizing :)

Seriously though, where do you find such deals??

Nicci August 29, 2010 at 11:04 pm

Thats what happened to me. I only threw out 2 magazines. Still working on getting rid of more.

That picture is so funny.

I struggle with magazines too. I try not to order them because I’m such a clutter bug. I promise myself that I’ll clip the fascinating stories then recycle the rest of the book but I just end up with a bunch of loose papers all over the place, including on my bed.

I like Fitness, Health and Shape magazines and I love the weight loss stories.

Yeah!!! What is the website!? I am a magazine junkie too – I love the food or nutrition section best :-)

Diana @ frontyardfoodie August 28, 2010 at 7:45 pm

I love them too. Even if it’s just for the pics of cute and inspiring women.

Meg August 28, 2010 at 6:26 pm

I can SO relate to this!!! I’ve been donating mine to a women’s shelter! The library wouldn’t take em’, what the?! Right? If you’re looking to rid yourself of some, I’d search for a women/homeless shelter to donate them :)

I’m obsessed with Shape! I love the newest issue! Kristin is awesome!

Nicci August 29, 2010 at 11:12 pm

Thank you Meg. great idea. I’ll check out the one in Denton.

Rachael @ Mrs-Adventure August 28, 2010 at 5:14 pm
