I told you I’d be back.
Cue creepy music and a currently post. It’s time to catch up because we haven’t spoke candidly in a long while. Grab some coffee, a cocktail, a cocktail wiener (ok that last one is just weird) and let’s hit it.
Current Book: here’s a nod to the books I read in 2018. Forty in all; not too shabby if I do say so myself and I totally do. Besides, the Outlander books are like 1,000 pages each, so they should count as multiples. If you look at it that way, I probably read like 80 books. Go me.
Current Drink: smoothies. The tiny human and I have been making and consuming them on a near daily basis. Peanut butter chocolate is her favorite, although I’m partial to the fruit filled concoctions.
Current Food: all the veggies. Since the middle of December, I’ve been making it a point to up the nutritional value of my edibles. Spinach, cauliflower, asparagus, broccoli, and carrots are on constant rotation with the occasional artichoke or potato thrown in for good measure.
Current Non-Guilty Pleasure: saying good-bye to the Week in Review link up.
Current Confession: honestly, I’ve been phoning that blog post in for months now. It was high time to step back and say ba-bye. Sorry I had to put you through all that.
Current Bane of Existence: I’m officially on a diet, like counting calories kind of diet. I hate it, but I dislike the excess weight I’ve been carrying for three years even more. (Note: I weigh more now than when I was 9 months pregnant, so yeah it’s time for a change) The first few days of counting were absolute hell, but I’m starting to get a handle on it, and some days, I even have room for wine. Thank god because parenting a toddler without booze is daunting.
(I’ve been eating this Cauliflower Chickpea Salad on repeat. Thank goodness I like my veggies.)
Current Excitement: I’ve successfully dropped six pounds in the past four weeks, which is a reasonable and healthy weight loss. Y’all know how I feel about fad fixes and restriction diets so this is hugely important to me. While I am counting every morsel (grumble, grumble), I’m making sure I enjoy life too, and I’m already looking forward to the day, I can switch back to maintenance mode and stop crunching numbers.
Current Obsession: aside from the whole calorie counting thing, I’m in love with my 2019 planner. Structure and planning gives me the warm fuzzies, even when I do fill in the wrong week (oops).
Current Blessing: everything. I have my health, my husband, my family, my business. Sure there are days any number of those things makes me bonkers, especially the tiny human who peed all over the floor last night, but at the end of the day and a mopping session later, I know I’m beyond fortunate.
Current Mood: happy. Life is good.
