Garbage. I bet no one else in this link up is going to say that lol. Do you ever feel like everything around you is just garbage? I am sure this is Whole30 Day 2/3 talking but I keep looking around my house wondering how come I can not get out from under the hoard no matter how much I donate or throw away. Maybe if I actually finished reading Marie Kondo's book it would help. Maybe if I put myself on the strictest of spending freezes it would help. Maybe if I scheduled a weekly trip to Goodwill on the way home from work, for example, it would help. I don't know but I feel like I am constantly gathering garbage. Maybe it's just the influx of crap over the holidays. Maybe I'm just hangry. I dunno...
Basic food. After months of rich casseroles, appetizers, fun cocktails and elaborate cheese boards I am back to basic bitch meals. I know that eating Whole30 does not have to be boring at all but the whole process takes so much more work in the beginning because of the shift in thinking I almost find it easier to just keep it really simple. That means simple roasted or grilled meat, seafood and veggies for most meals, hard boiled eggs or egg muffins for breakfast, lots of fruit, some nuts and Whole30 mayo made into about 100 different sauces.
Non-Alcoholic Bevvies.Water, LaCroix (by the gallon), Hot tea, 100% cranberry juice (like a drop or two) and black coffee. No more bourbon, fireball, wine, champagne or craft beers for awhile. Capital WHOMP WHOMP.
Too Many Live Feeds. Between IG Live, Stories & Snapchat stories I find myself wasting enormous amounts of time just watching strangers do they thang all the live long day. I'll push play in the morning while I'm at my vanity and just let it play through all of the people I follow that have stories. It's fascinating to me somehow. I feel like a voyeur and then an hour goes by and I realize I should be heading to work or sleeping or whatever. Does anyone else do this? The one thing I don't get is the people on IG live who just sit there and wait for people to say things to them. Huh? Don't do that, you're weird.
I don't really make resolutions anymore per se but in the spirit of the link up I am resolving to just get thru the next 28 days and this reset. Part 2 of that is to do the next phase of that reset, reintroduction, with intention and not let myself get derailed again totally. I can do this.
