Okay, so I know that taking a almost a four week hiatus was totally unacceptable in terms of running a blog. But I can assure you that it WILL NEVER happen again. The reason why I was gone for so long was because I was on vacation on the East Coast and I got tied up in everything that I was doing that I completely ran out of time to post. Life also got in the way and I found that experiencing new things were more important than making sure I updated my blog. So I am deeply sorry about my lack of updates and I promise that I will update at least two times a week.
Now, onto what this post is actually about: MY BRAND NEW 32 OZ. MASON JAR WATER BOTTLE!!!!
I was just strolling through the store, minding my own business when I saw THIS BEAUTIFUL OBJECT. Yes, I know it’s a plastic water bottle, but it truly brings joy into my life. It’s very beneficial for me personally because I like to keep track of what I’m eating and how much water I’m drinking and instead of having to keep finding water bottles to drink or having to refill a smaller water bottle, I have this! I am actually bubbling with excitement as I write this blog post. I think that I was destined to buy this bottle. It was the very last one on the shelf!!!
Well guys, that’s about all I have to say about this wonderful water bottle. I know this post was probably boring and not my best, but I am in a rush right now and I decided that I would just type up a quick post to let you guys know I am still alive and that I will continue to post. Sorry again for my semi-hiatus!
It’s never easy changing your eating habits. If you’re used to eating fast food two to three times a week, it’s extremely hard. Up until about two months ago, I’d eat fast food at least three times a week. After a long day of being on my feet, I was too lazy to worry about my calories or working out. In fact, both of those things were the last things on my mind. Then one day, I woke up and realized how horrible my eating habits were. I turned to salads and water and cut fatty foods out of my diet.
I made quite a few mistakes when I first began my fitness journey. I wasn’t eating enough calories at first, and I would also still have two cheat days a week. When I wasn’t stressing about my calories, I was constantly weighing myself. Although I did end up losing six pounds in one month, I had one week where I ate really unhealthy and gained two pounds back.
The most important thing to remember is to eat enough calories. My all-time favorite app to count calories is MyFitnessPal. All you have to do is plug in the calories of the food you’re eating, how much water you’re drinking, how long you exercise for, and how much you weigh. It takes everything into account and then supplies you with a specific number of calories you should be eating each day.
It is crucial to not obsesses over the amount of calories you’re eating or how much you weigh. What’s crucial is your goal. You have to keep in mind that you will not reach your goal if you obsess over each and every calorie you eat and every little ounce you weigh. If you meet your calorie requirements, work out daily, and eat healthy, you will reach your goals.
If anyone has any questions about my own specific fitness journey, my workout routine, or the food I eat daily, just leave a comment below and I’d be more than happy to answer them.
Big changes are coming for me and I’m very excited. I’ve recently restarted my fitness journey (I say restarted because I was on vacation and decided to not workout for a few weeks.) and I am super excited.
I’m also super excited to get this blog up and running. I know it’s sort of boring right now, but as I travel to more places, take more pictures, and come up with better blog posts, it will be a lot better. My blog posts will be a little longer as well.
I’ll be posting pictures of my vacation to Chicago in the next few days! I’m leaving for Michigan next weekend and I can’t wait to take pictures and post them as well.
