It dawned on me that I haven’t taken the time to write in TWO YEARS. I jot things down here and there on my phone and laptop but I’m tired of saying “I want to write again” or “I want to start cooking again”. I say those things but I don’t take action into physically doing them. So here I am, writing again.
Post-college is strange. You go from walking three minutes to your friends house everyday to everyone moving across the country. You go from getting a beer whenever you want to applying to endless jobs. And I think the scariest thing is a tie between how fast college went to knowing you never get those years back. You’re just forced to go on in life. So here I am, going on with life.
I’m going to be spending the next 7 days doing a detox to my body. I got so caught up in the depression of no longer seeing my friends and leaving a town I called home that I neglected my body and soul. I stopped doing things that made me feel alive such as running and yoga. I think social media does this thing where it can leave a negative impact on your self-esteem so to put myself out here in such a way is scary for me and here is why:
For the next week I will be cutting out bread, alcohol (goodbye Vodka Sprite, my one true love), red meat, pasta, and sweets. It almost seems like a joke as I type that out LOL ugh but it’s not. I think I will actually stick with it if I blog daily about how I’m feeling and whatnot.
Alright, so here is to day one! I started off my morning with one serving of Cheerios (okay, and coffee because that shit isn’t going anywhere) and a 30 minute workout. I was sluggish this morning so I only ran for 15 minutes and spending the other 15 doing squats and other similar nonsense. After my MUCH needed shower I snacked on 4 veggie nuggets from Morning Star which I’ve always been obsessed with. The grandparents are taking me to Texas Roadhouse tonight for a belated birthday dinner so I’m going to need ya’ll to PRAAAYYYYY I’m not tempted with their motha fuggin rolls.
Stay tuned for the feelings of tomorrow………………………………………………………………………….
