Hello, my friends! It has been a minute… or two… or five… or uhh, two months actually since i have blogged. That is awful lol. I can’t believe it has been that long but the time is flying by. I swear it was just my 26th birthday like uhhh… last week. But nope, that was over 4 months ago now. Crazy. *Mind blown*
So, i don’t really have a game plan for today’s post. It is probably going to turn into a whole bunch of rambles so i hope ya’ll are okay with that. I’m just going to take some time and update ya’ll on what’s been going on in my life.
The most exciting thing that has happened in the last month or two, is that Morgan and I finally moved into a new apartment. As some of you know, or maybe you don’t, my move to NOLA was just a wee bit unexpected. Because of that, that meant me, moving into Morgan’s small, studio apartment. Not exactly ideal for two 26 year old females with a lot of clothes and only one closet. Finally, the stars aligned and we moved into a two bedroom apartment in the same complex. Packing, moving, unpacking, is never a fun time but our place is slowly coming together. We still have some furniture to buy, decorations to hang but slowly but surely. (Pause. Where do ya’ll buy your furniture and home decor? Keep in mind, we’re ballin’ on a budget. We love cute decorations that don’t break the bank, so leave your decorating tips in the comments!) Perhaps i’ll show y’all some pics on here once everything is hung and put where it needs to be. So yeah, that’s very exciting for us… i finally have my own bedroom with a door, people! #Blessed haha.
I’m still working as a server at the Cheesecake Factory. We have gotten some new cheesecakes in the last few months… the Celebration Cheesecake (think funfetti cake and cheesecake had a baby), the Pumpkin, and the Pumpkin Pecan cheesecake ( a pecan pie and pumpkin cheesecake hybrid). ALL so delicious. I’d be lying if i said i haven’t had several pieces of each of these the past few months lol, don’t judge me. I just love cheesecake okay?? I have been saying that i was going to start searching for a new job, in my field of study (Nutrition), for about 2.5/3 months now and i haven’t…. until today. I took the time today to update my resume and apply to some Nutrition related jobs here in NOLA. Yay, adulting! I just got complacent and comfortable working at Cheesecake, but it’s time to start looking at what’s next. I’m going to make it a priority to keep looking for a new job and if things go the way i hope, i’ll have something new by the end of the year. My fingers are crossed.
What else has been going on? ….hmmm. One thing about me, you may or may not know, is that i can be a bit of a homebody. I always say that if people ask me to go out, or do something, i will say yes. Usually, i say no or come up with some reason, or excuse not to go. Well, for the last month or two, i have been working on actually saying “yes” to going out and socializing. I’ve gone on a couple dates, gone out for dinner and drinks with friends, spur of the moment things, and i have actually had fun. *Gasp*. Who knew, right? Haha. I feel like in the past, i have used sticking to my diet or sticking to my gym routine, as a crutch, or as an excuse, to be antisocial. I can’t complain that i don’t have any friends or that i never do anything if any time some one asks me to go out, i say no… Anyone want to go out and do something?? Haha.
In regards to my diet and training, i am still (mostly) tracking my macros and going to the gym 5-6 days a week. Ish. Some weeks, ill make it to the gym a little less because of working doubles at Cheesecake and that’s okay. I have been adding more food into my diet since my “mini cut” for Vegas which has been great. Some days I don’t hit my macros and that’s okay. I’m a lot less stressed about not hitting my numbers and the number on the scale than i have been in previous “off seasons” . Yes, I feel like it is important to be consistent with my nutrition and food choices, but if i go over my fat macros for the day because i had pizza watching football, than that is fine by me. The world will not end. I feel happy with how my body looks right now, I am confident, and I am eating good food.. what’s not to love about that?
What else is going on? I think that’s pretty much it… It is now officially “Fall” however, it is still hot AF down here in NOLA. It was only a mere 90 degrees today. I don’t mind though lol, i despise the snow and cold weather. The basic bitch in me loves ALL THINGS pumpkin spice so my taste buds are happy. It’s football season again, which has me so excited. (Go cowboys!) I scheduled a hair appointment for October which is very badly needed so that’s also great news for me.
And yeah… that’s about it. That’s my life right now. With only 3 months left in 2017, I am hoping to finish off the year making some positive changes. That also includes FINALLY getting back into a consistent blogging routine. I know, i know, i say this literally every time i blog and then you don’t hear from me for months at a time. *face palm*
So with that being said, What types of blog posts would y’all like to see? Nutrition, fitness, food ideas, recipes, favorites, more blog posts from @mbkellyy? Please leave a comment and let me know, because i would love y’alls insight.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read my rambles and my little “life update”. You’ll be hearing from me again soon, i promise.
