Pinterest tells me that random nail polish colors are (FINALLY) back in style. The whole world tells me that Harry Potter is fantastic. Commercials tell me what to eat, wear, and buy.
I believe last Monday I told you that I jumped on the SheReadsTruth bandwagon. I’m loving it so far! If you’ve thought about joining in for even a second, you should do it. You can start now, you don’t need to catch up. Each day is a COMPLETELY new verse and devotional, so there is absolutely no reason you can’t just pick it up today!
But for the post part, I’m not a huge fan of bandwagons.
Bandwagons I will not be jumping on: Naming my child something that starts with a vowel, 50 Shades of Gray, the word “adorbs,” sushi, and Green Monster smoothies.
I’m AM on board with bandwagons that are beneficial to your life. Yeah, I’m sure a Green Smoothie would be a better breakfast choice than Pop Tarts, but I don’t think it’ll improve my life enough to justify the cost, time, and taste. So no. SheReadsTruth is nothing but beneficial.
A week and a half ago, by Best Blog Friend Forever introduced The Cardboard Box Diet. I read about it, well, because I always read Lauren’s posts, but I shrugged it off. I’m not interested in diets and I’m certainly not interested in working out. Sure, I’d love to fit into my pre-pregnancy jeans and I think it would be fabulous to wear a bikini again, but I’m not really the type to work for that sort of thing.
Well the gym Stephen goes to recently made a change. Some other company bought them out and one of the new perks is that he can bring a guest every time he goes. Yeah.
He has been pressuring me to go. It basically has made me want to kick him in the groin, but the truth is that there is no reason I shouldn’t. Oh you know, besides the fact that I HATE WORKING OUT OMG.
Here is the honest to goodness truth. I have good genes. I can’t just completely let myself go, but if I live a pretty responsible life, I’ll stay thin. Also I’m 6 feet tall, which means weight is much harder to see on me. And my thought is this: We will eventually have another kid. Why work to lose weight if I’m just going to gain it all back??
Not a good mentality, I know. So I’m not going into this full force. That’s not me and it never will be me. I would be completely miserable if I dedicated a huge chunk of my time to fitness. I will work out once or twice a week, but mostly I will be more aware of what I put into my body. I have started to drink a lot more water (mostly because I think
it helps my GPN, but that’s probably in my head) so I think that’s a great start.
I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to weigh myself. I weigh the same today as I did before I got pregnant, my body is just SO DIFFERENT. So I think I may just ignore numbers and stick with judging the progress by how I feel and look. We’ll see.
Anyways, she blogs about this every Thursday and you can link up. Obviously I’m not trying to pressure you into joining, but it is my duty to tell you about it, right? If you’d like to join in, we’d love to have you. If not, just encourage us along the way!
