The weekly report: I just really like food.

Haven't done one of these in a while so thought it'd be fun and a nice break from those looooong ass posts I've been writing lately. But really, the number 1 thing on my mind right now is food, so that's what I'm going to talk about. It's really all I ever think about. I have a problem.


Does anyone else love to peek in other peoples grocery carts?? I think it's fascinating. Or again, do I just have a problem? 

Really though, I've been on this seriously healthy kick lately, like writing down everything I eat and how many walks I take a day, and I've even been adding up my daily sugar total because DID YOU KNOW women should limit sugar to 25 grams per day???


Like this ^ has 18 grams itself. And it tastes amazing so no wonder. I know I'm always talking about sugar, but seriously once I started added it up every day, it was bad. I've been trying to stick to like 30 grams a day, and it's hard. Yesterday I had cereal, a protein bar and some peanut butter and I was at 42 grams. And I was really bad earlier this week...I was feeling a little sicky on Monday and found myself at Walmart for supplies and left with...break-n-bake cookies. By the way, those are the worst! I still ate like 6 or 7 of them but still, the worst! AND then I also found myself in the McDonalds drive-thru because I was craving a cheeseburger so bad. I gave myself a pass for Monday, but other than that I've been doing pretty good...except I have another donut date later this morning and this place looks amazing. I'm already looking at their website deciding what I want to get. I've never had bacon on a donut, is that really good? I really just want chocolate everything. Or blueberry. 

But I SWEAR OTHER THAN THAT HAPPENING, I've been doing pretty good this week. And I've been to the gym twice, and plan to go again either Saturday or Sunday, so it's all good. "Balance Morgan." (That's me talking to me.) I really liked Kristen's idea of snap-guilting herself into working out everyday for 31+ days, but I think I bother everyone enough...so maybe I better not. I'm trying to stick to 3 days a week and I've been writing it down on the calendar and it feels really good to see "gym" filling in the days, but if that stops working I might have to take it to another level to keep myself motivated. I keep telling John that I'm "getting in shape for 28" because I'll be 28 in May. (I just admitted my plan so now I have to stick to it right?)

Moving on to things other than what I ate this week..

I know I already talked about books this week (although I don't really expect anyone to read those reviews lol), but I have got to talk about this new book I just started. It's called Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking and if you consider yourself even half an introvert READ IT! My mind is like, blown. I've been reading it in bed every night and highlighting everything and talking Johns ear off about it. I might actually do a legit review about it because it's just so interesting. 

And I'd like to say that I have nothing to report on the Netflix end....but guilty. I watched the entire season of Love (liked it, didn't love it), AND am already planning on binging Fuller House all weekend. I still remember watching the very last episode as a kid and crying. (Didn't Michelle fall off a horse or something?) I have really low expectations though. The trailer already looks disappointing doesn't it? I hope it's not like the Boy Meets World remake. I couldn't get past the overly fashionable kids. And WHY is Stephanie's haircut the exact same? And why are they still saying "you got it dude" to Michelle? Like did she not grow up past 9? She had no other catch phrases as a teenager? I'm always tearing things apart for not being realistic. I tried to watch Pretty Little Liars this week (mostly for background noise) and I got so mad because they all have perfect hair. They had been out all night dealing with "A" and fires and running around avoiding death basically, and afterwards they were all sitting around talking with perfect hair still. Why? And they never bring backpacks to school. Only giant designer purses. Does that bother anyone else? (Or again, just me..?)

So anyways, I'll stop there before I go on any more...but that's what I'll probably be doing all weekend. Full house binge, reading a book about why I try so hard to be cool, hopefully having a date night with my lover (who doesn't have to work!) and then going to the gym to work off these donuts I'm about to get.

Happy Friday! xx

  1. I'm on my way home to watch Fuller House right now and I can't wait! It'll probably be over the top cheesy but I don't even care haha

  2. hahaha I was thinking the SAME THING about fuller house! I started it this morning (still need to finish episode 1) but they still say all the same catch phrases and it's funny once like "oh haha the old catch phrases" but if they say it like every episode I might cry a little. I LOVED full house so I am kinda nervous about this ruining it for me. And I agree with PLL, they always wear perfect designer clothes and always look perfect even when A almost kills them 500 times an episode haha. Ok and onto the food talk. All of the food you've been eating (like donuts) sounds so good. But if you REALLY want to hate food, just get pregnant! ;) I like stuff but pretty much the only things that don't make me wanna throw up are healthy things so I am forced to eat healthy (but obviously torture myself a lot with unhealthy food and then pay for it by feeling sick) but really, that's the secret! Have fun with John this weekend and take lots of pics of the donut you pick so I can pretend I'm the one who gets to eat it (obviously I'm desperate)

    1. Lol if they botch it I'll be so sad, it was such a great show. I hope they focus more on the girls than the new kids lol

  3. 25 GRAMS?! For real? I was buying these chocolate peanut butter protein bars that were THE BEST...and then I looked and they had like 16 grams of sugar and like 6 grams of protein... So I went to the store and realized I was buying 'energy bars.' I bought protein bars this time which are like 21 grams of protein and 6 grams of sugar...and, predictably, they don't taste as good. But I feel better about them.

    I don't feel that great about eating Pop Tarts for breakfast and planning to go to froyo tonight though...plus coffee creamer... I'll probably end the day around 1000 grams. Hahahaha.

    Oh and bacon on maple bars is AMAZING. I promise.

    What else... OH I am absolutely 100% going to read that book because it sounds perfect for my life.

    I kind of hated Michelle sometimes in Full House. Is that mean? It just bugged me that she was always doing dumb crap and getting away with it. She never got in trouble! Hahaha. Hearing that they use their old catch phrases kind of freaks me out... I hope it doesn't suck. Also I kind of don't like Candace Cameron Buree (or however you spell it) unlike 97% of bloggers so I'm like...hmmm...

    1. Lol pop tarts are one of my guilty pleasures. Like every single flavor. I love them. And I had THREE donuts so like 1,000,000,000 grams now. Oh well!!!!! Okay and full house is just okay, I'm a few episodes in. I DO feel like Dj Tanner is leading the show though lol. But Mary Kate and Ashley would have made this awkward because they're so weird now. They're like angry little gremlins I can't see them becoming Michelle now lol.

  4. I'm starting fuller house right now! Your donut post was killing me this morning when I was starving. I've eaten an average of one burger a week for the past month including McDonald's. No judgement here,

  6. Pretty sure I go over 25g of sugar a day too. Sugar seems to be in EVERYTHING so it feels unrealistic to stay within that every single day unless you're just eating meat & veggies or something like that. I've been making my own protein bars for a few years now but still buy some from the store if they look good (like the S'mores Fiber One protein bars...). I'm about halfway through Fuller House right now! It's not great but I kind of love the old quotes & references because that show was my childhood!

    1. I know, it's really is stupid that I'm even trying lol. I just have a BIG problem with sugar, like I'm addicted so bad, so I'm always trying to cut it out. It make and feel like shit. I didn't even know you could make protein bars! I need to look that up asap. I should really just ask you any fitness related questions because you know what's going on girl!

  7. I have a sugar allergy (so annoying) so I do my best to avoid it at all costs and it is continuously boggles my mind how many things it is in. Literally in everything (and a lot of it!).

    1. Oh this sounds bad, but I would love a sugar allergy. I have a big problem. I can't even keep things in the house or else I'll eat them. I baked last weekend and I had to throw it all away because I couldn't stop. And it really is in EVERYTHING! Have you watched that documentary on Netflix? I forget what it's called off the top of my head, but it's about how sugar is killing us basically. It's insane.

  8. i am loving what you are sharing with that introvert book, very insightful and i think i need to read it! i love looking into (and judging) other people's shopping carts haha

    1. It's really good! I just always thought I was weird because I was so shy and had a hard time speaking up and being social growing up, and I didn't even know what an introvert was until a few years ago so I'm like WOW maybe I'm not as weird as I thought. It's just crazy. The book goes into how our schools and work places are basically forcing us to be like the ideal extrovert but we can't all be like that. It's just so interesting to me, and I get obsessed with things. My husband keeps referring to it as my bible when I'm reading lol. BUT yeah, I love trying to figure out what people are eating. I particularly like Costco because I always imagine everyones throwing parties or something lol.

  9. Oh God, I'm terrified of counting the sugar I eat in one day. I really should though for an eye opener, haha. Please tell me you got a bacon donut (never had one) and that Fuller House is okay?! I'm planning on getting into it this week!

    1. Lol yes I got TWO bacon donuts hahaha. It was so good. And I'm like 7 episodes into full house and at first I wasn't sure if I liked it, but it's growing on me more. I just wanted it so badly to be like the same show, but of course they couldn't do that, it's 2016 so of course everyone has cell phones and the humor is a little different. But it's pretty good.
