Oh haiiii neglected blog readers!
You may have noticed that I have not written anything for almost three weeks… Or didn’t notice at all, and that’s cool. I certainly noticed, and I feel like it’s been nagging at me every day but it wasn’t enough to make me sit down and write anything. Actually, I sort of took a break from most social media in general, and it felt pretty freeing, I can’t lie. I think this is the longest break I’ve taken in nearly six years of blogging, so I better get back to it before I forget how to do it. As with anything, it’s really hard to start again.
Well, in my case, I’ve come too far to let my blog fall apart because I don’t know what to write about.
Otherwise, no reason for the break. I’ve been busy, but not busier than usual. All is well over here but nothing really new or exceptionally exciting. Wedding planning is still happening, but so far so good there and it isn’t taking a ton of time (yet, probably).
One thing I have definitely not been busy with is working out or running, as I totally fell off that bandwagon back in June after my 10k race. I ran about three times all summer. Whoops.
I know, good job me.
And I have just been eating with abandon – forget counting calories or macros or even eating in moderation. I’ve been eating it all and not caring.
So, that hasn’t been great. That coupled with the fact that I haven’t been doing my usual lunchtime walks – and I had a parking space all summer so I was driving to work instead of taking transit so my walking time was cut down significantly – and I’ve been putting on some poundage.
Not a ton (although I haven’t weighed myself so who knows) but everything is feeling pretty snug right now. Not the biggest of deals except I am getting married in six months and would like to fit into the dress that I ordered. That would be ideal.
This week I was planning on getting back on the healthy track… But then we had an event at work which included what seemed like unlimited cheese (I probably ate about a full block over two days) and those little triangle cut sandwiches and mini deli wraps, none of which I can resist. And then afterwards we went out for pints to celebrate.
Which I like, but my pants don’t. Then my coworker brought in cupcakes and she makes THE BEST CUPCAKES IN ALL THE LAND (she’s actually doing our wedding cake), so I had to eat two of those.
And then yesterday we had a bunch of assorted baked goods to celebrate said event going well…
and welp, here I am. The end of the week, not back on track. Evan and I were talking about doing the Whole30 again in November but now there’s a bunch of stuff going on, including several eating events, and we’re heading to Florida at the end of the month so…I don’t think that’s going to happen. I did sign up for the Orangetheory that’s opening up in my neighbourhood, but it doesn’t open until the end of November, so that won’t be happening just yet.
Also, blogging time has sort of been taken over by Gilmore Girls watching time lately (hence the Gilmore Girls gifs). I’m trying to get caught up before the big revival happens!
I’m sure you’ve seen the trailer if you’re any sort of fan, but here it is anyway.
Oh man, all the feels, especially about the Emily scenes. I can’t wait. But I’m only mid season three so I still have a lot of re-watching to do (not looking forward to seasons 6 and 7, ugh). Evan is watching it with me and he’s never seen it before – it’s fun to watch with someone who’s experiencing the magic for the first time. It pleases me how much he likes it.
And as for blogging, I guess I just haven’t really been feeling it lately. Although, I am feeling it right now. I don’t know, the whole blogging atmosphere has changed so much over the past several years. The whole internet atmosphere has changed so much over the past several years. Everything feels so curated and perfectly Pinterest-y, or troll-y. I’m really not into curated perfection, but I’m not sure what direction I should be going in blog-wise. When I write about my adventures it feels repetitive. I started writing about our Thanksgiving (and I’ll probably finish it) but it just felt like what I wrote last year. How many times can I go on about how much I love eating holidays? I’ve said it for six years now. (But I do love them, so much.) I’ve even nearly stopped taking pictures throughout the day, which is unlike me but has somehow been gradually happening over the last few months…so then I forget what happens. I am working on a new cartoon post actually, I’ve missed drawing! But it is time consuming. And I really want to get back to eating the world! Anyway
I’m done for now.
One last thing though. Americans, THANK GOD your election is coming to an end, I can’t take hearing about it anymore and I don’t even live there. You must be so looking forward to it being over.
Have a great weekend!
