First off, I still have no idea how to approach the naming scheme for this series. I guess I will stick to the ol’ reliable colon with subtitle. 😅 Can’t believe April is nearly over! Slow down, time. You’re going too fast! 🕐
Here’s what I’ve been up to lately! I honestly miss writing journal entries on my blog. ~*Quality*~ posts are so exhausting haha. Can shitposting be an acceptable form of lifestyle blogging?
Planning My Meals
A few weeks ago, I started planning my meals. I’ve been lifting weights for about a year, and I really should’ve been on top of my nutrition at the same time, but better late than never! I plan my meals based on calories and my protein intake. I’m slowly getting used to counting my macros. I like to write my meals down the night before and calculate my totals, then cook accordingly.
Believe it or not, planning my calories and protein intake actually makes my life simpler. I know exactly what I’m going to eat, and I know how to prepare it. On days that I don’t feel like putting in the effort, I can default back to a plan that I know works. I don’t have to restrict myself either. If I want bacon or a cheeseburger, I can simply plug those numbers in, adjust my other meals, and enjoy my food without guilt.
I learned a lot about myself through this process. First, I really like to plan. I used to say I’m spontaneous but I question that now haha. Maybe I was more impulsive when I was younger, but not anymore. It’s fine coz I didn’t take good care of myself when I was younger. I think I operate better when I have clearer boundaries.
Second, I now know what foods I actually can’t live without. I love to eat, and it’s easy to say I can’t give up chips, cheese, chocolate, butter, and so on. Turns out I can, and I don’t even miss them. Now I know it’s really milk and cereal I love. 😛 I eat it all the time!
Rocking Plant Nanny
Along with meal planning, I’ve been keeping good track of my water intake as well! I used to have the problem of not drinking enough water and getting mildly dehydrated. I mentioned Plant Nanny in my faves post, and I’m still using it. Look at all my plants! 🌱 I’m currently growing my Totally Spy Clover. Here we goooo, here we goooo~ 🎶
Having Fun with Miitomo
And I’m still on Miitomo! This app is so fun. I’m honestly not that great at talking about myself. This coming from a blogger lololol, but I’ve always written better than I spoke. Blogging gives me time to think about what to say, and posts I write about isn’t always completely honed on me personally. Rather, they’re about my hobbies or my work or something else beyond my being.
When put on the spot to talk about myself (just myself), my answer is most likely “Oh, I’m a person, so yeah that’s cool.” That’s one reason my About page is short and deflective. How to tell people about myself without sounding self-absorbed/pretentious/vulnerable?
ANYWAY. Back to Miitomo here, I like that it asks me questions that I would otherwise never tell other people. Some are fun, others get real, and others yet can get downright weird. Anyone else got the question about sauces coming out of your pinky finger? Wat.
I’m also a little obsessed with Miitomo Drop! I wish it didn’t cost me tickets or coins. I love watching all the Miis bounce around. 😆 I just got a few new clothes from the latest Gothic drops!
How is everyone? My life lately has been routine, to be honest. I have nothing else to say about it. 😶 Work’s keeping me very busy, but I’m going on a vacation soon. Can’t wait! Hope you guys are all well. 💖
