Hey friends! How’s the week treating you so far?
We’re already halfway through the week, and I wound up spending most of my “blog time” earlier in the week working on an upcoming, post, so I’m a little behind “schedule.” I mean, if you can even call it that. Because, let’s be real…there’s no schedule around here these days!
I’ve been trying to decide what I want to chat about today. And I feel like I’ve got a bunch of little thoughts that have come up, so I don’t know…should we call this a coffee chat? Or something. Is that what they’re calling it these days?
First up, let’s talk about my sugar cravings. Because they are raging lately and I’m having a hard time reigning it back in! I totally know how this cycle goes, though, and when I’m in the thick of it, it’s hard to break. But I know once I finally pump the breaks on the extra sweets throughout the day, it starts to get easier and easier. Addiction, at its finest.
I’ve been toying with the idea on whether or not I want to take a month or two to go back to tracking macros. You may remember I did it consistently for about 3-4 months a little over a year ago, and it was one of the best, most eye-opening experiences. I will continue to stand by my claim that I, truly, never felt better. But it does take some commitment to be willing to track everything. Over time, it definitely gets easier, but I think part of me is either feeling a bit lazy, or not quite ready to give up my grazing habits.
Probably a little bit of both there.
So I may start out by trying to track a bit more on weekdays and go from there. If nothing else than to just be more mindful of the handful of this here, cookie there…ya know, that kinda thing.
Let’s see, what else….
I’ve found myself doing a lot of eye-rolling on social media lately. Am I getting old? Is my age really showing itself? I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s just the circle that all of my social media channels think I need/want to be following (since those algorithms, man…they are just the worst!), but I’m seeing all sorts of stuff lately like more fad diets, and more “healthy” foods, and outrageous workout programs, and over-complicating health and wellness. Sometimes I’m like, okay Court, you must be doing something wrong.
But then I remove myself from those social media circles and look around at everything else around me that’s not through the phone, and I realize that if how I’m living is wrong, then I don’t wanna be riiight.
Super corny. Had to do it.
I’ve been thinking a bit more about work, and my day job, and where I want to see that going down the road. I’ve had some really good, positive chats with my bosses/managers lately, and I feel really good about how things may wind up going. There are no major announcements, or accolades, or anything like that, but there may be some new responsibilities added to my role soon, which I’m really excited about.
So we’ll see how things pan out through the rest of the year!
I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting lately about my boys, and how they’re growing up so fast. Some days I look at them, and I truly cannot wrap my head around the fact that they’re already grown this much.
I know these sentiments are not unique to me, and I’m sure every other mom (or dad!) out there can relate, but it just truly goes by SO fast. And while I absolutely adore seeing them grow up, I also need time to slow down juuuuust a little. Just recently, someone mentioned something about the boys going off to get married someday, and I legit cried tears at the thought of it. GUYS. I’m totally going to be that mom that can’t let her boys go…!
Then again, if Alex’s current situation with not being able to let me leave him is at all telling of the future, perhaps he’ll be living with me forever.
I honestly think I could probably keep rambling here, but if I did that, I’d run out of things to share for Fun Facts Friday. Soooo, we’ll leave it at that. <3
