I know I’ve been MIA lately, and that’s because I’m literally so busy I haven’t had time to do anything but work, eat, and sleep.
I just wanted to give a little life update! ALSO, I have tons of photos on my phone that I will be dumping here in case you’re interested in that kinda thing ‘n’ stuff.
WEIGHT UPDATE: I set a goal to gain 10 pounds by my birthday (September 24) and this morning I reached that goal. HAAAY! I’m not even upset about it. I’ve gained a lot of muscle and it’s honestly all gone to my butt and triceps. Random, I know. I have a few things to thank for these gains: 1) All the food. I’ve been consistently eating at least 5000 calories a day, usually more. Mostly carbs. 2) Lifting. I’ve really been seeing progress and watching myself grow (physically and mentally) and it’s really cool. 3) Sitting on my butt all day. Working 9 hours at a desk, and then coming home and sitting down and then sleeping. Yep..the only time I’m on my feet are those 50-60 minutes I spend lifting. Anyway, that’s helped a lot.
WERK UPDATE: I’ve been working 9 or so hours a day, and yesterday I actually worked 16 hours because I worked for 9 and then babysat for 7. Needless to say, I was exhausted last night when I got home at midnight and this morning Jarrett and I slept in until 10. Something I haven’t done in…I don’t even know how long. Anyway, I’m thrilled to have this job and am really lucky to have this kind of income at 20 years old, but it’s certainly a lot of work. (Not that I didn’t expect work to be work…but ya know.)
SCHOOL&STUFF UPDATE: I’m glad to have Saturday and Sunday off of work, but I have to essentially spend all day just doing my independent study work, grocery shopping, and getting things prepared for next week. I’ve been so busy I just don’t even have time to do fun things anymore! I have to savor every single moment I get with Jarrett. We used to spend his three days off work doing fun stuff and going on dates, but there literally is no time anymore so we just hang out at home on weekend mornings and a couple weekday nights. We also have gone fishing, which he is currently obsessed with. He bought a boat. I don’t even know.
Did I ever mention that I dyed my hair mahogany? I don’t know that I did. I know it was in my vlog, but yeah. My hair is now purpley-red. I quite like it.
I have a vlog uploading right now, so the rest of my updates will be in there! I have a lot to say and a lot of posts planned, but for now I have to get back to all of my homework.
OH. Please go and buy the 1) Red Velvet bagels and 2) Pumpkin Spice bagels. MOUTHGASM / 10 would buy again. I love seasonal things. I’m obsessed with anything pumpkin right now. I know, I know..me and every other white girl out there.
Sorry this post was brief and sporadic, but I’m like in such a different head space than I have been in the past year and I’m trying to adjust to it. It’s a good thing, for sure…but it’s different. I have been having hardly any “disordered” or bad thoughts lately, and it’s honestly so amazing. If you’re struggling right now, please know it gets better. But ONLY if you put in the work.
OKAY, TIME FOR THE PHOTO DUMP. 🙂
The new Combat Crunch Birthday Cake Bar…
Would not buy again / 10.
Tricep progress 5 A.M. selfie.
New blingy phone case.
From the night I ate 8 of these bars in one sitting. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Help.
Who am I dating?
Let me know if you like photo dumps & I’ll keep doing them weekly! It’s a good way to kind of show you what’s happening in life without having to write it all down.
