I know everyone is all omg it’s light out when I leave work- this rules! but I’m like really depressed that its so dark in the mornings now. I’m all for spring/summer and the days getting longer, but I don’t like the hour/light swap currently. I want my sunny mornings back. Can you tell I’m on the struggle bus adjusting to daylight savings?
I’ve been eating enchiladas for breakfast. I made these lightened up beef enchiladas on Sunday night for dinner and I’ve been enjoying the leftovers with an egg on top. It feels indulgent to be eating meat at breakfast but I kind of love it. I also may or may not have eaten my leftover turkey burgers on Sunday for breakfast. Meat. It’s what’s for breakfast?
I’ve been spending way too much money on fruit. I have had some CRAZY fruit cravings lately. I cannot get enough. I’ve been buying the pre-cut containers of mango and kiwi and watermelon from Whole Foods + organic strawberries… not economical by any means. Whoops. I feel sort of guilty about it. But it makes me so happy and I’m convinced there are worse things to be spending money on.
Like eye shadow. I bought my first real thing of makeup (and by first I mean, first ever- up until yesterday I had only purchased drug/pharmacy store makeup) from Urban Decay. I hate myself and love myself at the same time for this splurge. It’ll be worth it.
I have not been in the mood to workout. Usually the motivation to get up and move just comes naturally. Lately though, no. No thank you. All I want to do is sleep. I think it’s just a sign that I’m tired. All this running and 1/2 training has been hard on my body. No doubt about it. I’m glad my training plan was only six weeks long- otherwise I’d be in major burn out mode. I’m hoping post-race that I’ll get back into it by switching things up with my old bootcamp classes and spin.
In my spare time, I have been popping into stores here and there to try on dresses and warm weather pretty things. A lot of things I can’t afford. Like the dress below. But I’m still trying to figure out the shape of my body and what looks good on me so I like to just try stuff on when I can. I did buy one dress from H&M for like $15 that I plan on wearing for a wedding I’m going to next month. Again. Not the gorgeous one below, but its still nice.
For as worried as I can be about gaining weight and all those Ed shenanigans, I’m also so over the idea of weighing myself and calories. As soon as someone starts to talk about calories like they’re the be all end all of thing, I just shut them out. I have no time for it. It’s amazing how different my view on the subject is today than it was six months ago, a year ago, two years ago. But that’s what happens when you further your education and continue to seek out information regarding subjects that are important to you.
I know I’ve gained weight in the past handful of months- but I truly believe that it’s good weight and weight that my body needed. My eating habits are far better today than they ever have been. I’m a huge advocate behind the idea of quality over quantity (eating for health/nutrition versus calorie counting) and I think that the way I eat now will keep me healthy for the rest of my life. That’s a bold statement to make, but I wouldn’t make it if I didn’t mean it. I’m 100% confident in how I’m doing things now.
Keep it wicked healthy xoxo
