|Outfit Photos or Lack Thereof|
Yes, I know I've barely taken any outfit photos. That's mainly because I am not happy with the way I look lately plus I can't stand being outside trying to pose for photos when it's humid, sticky, and gnats are flying at my face. I am working on that though for Fall and Winter so I will definitely have some posts up! But yes about my body......Earlier this year someone (I will never reveal who it was) that I don't see often, saw me and asked me if I was pregnant. REALLY?! It was a man, lol, needless to say. That should have been the turning point for me but it wasn't, although I did bawl like a baby for days and days. Once I moved into my new house it became more possible to actually do things to work on my nutrition and fitness needs. Which leads me to my next few points...
I am a cooking machine lately. I am trying new recipes and making up some of my own. I used to think I hated cooking. And then when I had my own kitchen and my own house I realized it's so easy and fun. I think that's what held me back all these years because the only other time I had a place where I was free to do whatever in the kitchen was my apartment but that was when I was 22. I cared more about drinking than cooking back then. I guess it's never too late to start eh? So yea, I cook a lot and I post it all on Instagram so be sure to follow along!
Along with that, I started doing meal planning and I use my own DIY planner inspired by Blissful and Domestic! I know, I could easily buy a premade meal planner but I've tried that before even with a fitness journal and I just don't take it as seriously as I do if it's something I made myself. I think I take more pride in it when I write it all out and create the calendar. I love meal planning now. I've only been doing it for like 2 weeks and I'm afraid it might be difficult to keep up with the expenses for fresh produce and stuff but we will see.
Well for the first time I may have found a schedule I can stick to. I used to try to exercise almost everyday. The problem with that was that the second I was too sore I would skip a day or two and then lose my routine. So now I'm comitted to working out 3 days a week. And instead of doing the same workout each time and getting bored with it quickly (another reason I stopped exercising), I have decided to do 3 different ones. Saturday or Sunday I usually do this brutal kettlebell workout, Tuesday I do Abs with this or this video, and Thursday I do this video.
Oh and it also helps that we have a home gym area in our basement! YAY!!!!!!!
Yes, Hell hath frozen over. I'm considering growing some of my own veggies. Any tips? I'm in Pennsylvania so I'll have to start in the spring but I'd like to grow my own cucumbers, herbs, and tomatoes.
I tried out a new product - Secret Clinical Strength Antiperspirant that I got for free as a BZZAgent and honestly it does a great job with my sweaty self. I always have issues with sweating so this helps get rid of the embarassment and it lasts so long!
So anyways that's what I'm up to lately. What are you guys up to?
