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
