Okay so the donut was actually Justin’s (I’m allergic to red dye so there’s no way I was eating that) but I couldn’t resist snapping the photo on my new Sony a6000 camera!
Anywho, where were we. Ah yes, three things.
1. I clearly have a new thing for resting donuts on my iced coffee, and I’m sure you’ve noticed that too if you follow me on insta. I am soooo trendy, right? Ha! Usually once a weekend, I treat myself to *GASP* a flavored nonfat latte! Sugar overload, I know, but it’s the only thing that keeps me sane while trying to lose weight. J-man was annoyed because I was using his donut as a prop for pictures while I played with my new camera. Haha poor guy, I almost felt sorry for him until I remembered we JUST ATE A REAL BREAKFAST so he wasn’t dying of hunger anytime soon.
2. Speaking of dying from hunger, I am kinda-sorta watching what I eat more now. Not a diet per se, just watching. I feel like my whole fitness history has been like one big roller coaster and I’m looking for more of a straight, flat road. That’s possible, right? I’m not counting calories or macros or anything like that, just being mindful of what I eat and trying to consume lots of produce and lean protein. I really haven’t felt like “myself” in over a year, because I weight more than I used to and quite frankly no one likes feeling like a fluffy version of their younger self. So for right now, I’m just figuring out what works for me in terms of losing and maintaining my weight without deprivation or anything crazy.
3. Last but not least, KEMBA baby! Why did no one ever tell me that having a puppy is like having an infant?! Getting Kemba is still one of our top 3 best decisions, but geesh he is really draining a lot of my energy. Thank goodness he has some redeemable qualities! ;) Kemba’s newest kick is to be super hyper at 12am, 4am, and 6am. I don’t know how I raised a nocturnal dog, but please someone help me correct this fast. Despite the dark circles he’s causing me, I’m still obsessed. I take him to the grocery store, to Target, to take out the trash, and he even waits outside the curtain while I am showering haha. We even had Justin’s parents “puppy-sit” when we were going to be out late one night. So embarrassing! I’ve become one of those people.
