Up All Night


So I was up all night for no reason. Occasionally insomnia or just too much caffeine. Yesterday I went to the store and bought a notebook to start a food journal. But then laying there in the dark thinking about everything under the sun, I thought why not finally start a blog. My boyfriend and I have been joking about it for months. I’m semi obsessed with other people’s food blogs but never quite got the courage for my own. What’s even better than a food journal for accountability but a blog that other people can see. This all started because I can’t seem to lose these 6 or 7 pounds that I have put on over the last year and it’s starting to make me a little crazy. It seems to be that whenever my weight crept up  a little I would eat a little better or work out a little harder and it would come off. But not this time. I can make all the excuses that “I’m getting older and my metabolism sucks now” or “I’m running more so my legs must have gotten bigger from that” or “the scale must be off’. But the truth is probably more likely due to what goes in my mouth and I know it. I could drone on in this post about all my past body issues and unhealthy eating habits that have caused me to lose and gain weight over the years but that is for another time. I’m just really excited to get this blog started to have some accountability. Wish me luck.

After a long day or boredom my boyfriend came back and we got to cooking dinner. I did the supervising and filled up on some yummy beer. We split a couple of these. Troegs Dream Weaver Wheat Ale. Nice and wheaty just the way I like beer!
