Dear Readers & InstaGram Followers, Turns out the only thing I take photos of these days is my food. Considering I don't have much of a life outside of work and cooking Whole30-approved meals, I suppose this makes sense. I apologize if it's obnoxious, but at least it all looks pretty put together in a collage! Believe it or not, before this week I had never cooked my own steak before. It still totally grosses me out and I'm not sure how I feel about it, but it's quite delicious. So at least I've got that going for me. Also, I'm now obsessed with coconut water and green smoothies. Awesomeness.
Dear iPhone, Thanks for being flippin' awesome. I can barely remember a time when I couldn't make my photos look 300x cooler than they actually are with photo editing apps. Dear It Starts With Food, After reading you, I think I'm going to be very conflicted about eating bread, sugar or consuming alcohol ever again.. Again, I'm not sure how I feel about this. I'm already starting to feel hostile when I see commercials with Olympians enjoying a refreshing coke (There's no way you drink soda while training! It's terrible for you!) or skinny, beautiful people nomming on some KitKats and singing about it (You're probably one of those skinny people who are secretly storing sneaky-heart-unhealthy-fat in your midsection waiting to turn into a heart attack!). Which is when I calmly remind myself that these are paid actors and that it's just the carb-deprived crazy in me talking. I'm really starting to wonder what my eating habits will be like after the Whole30 is over. There is much research and decision-making to be done in the next 19 days. Dear Weather, Chill out. Every single day I've been seeing crazy lightning and it keeps scaring me away from running outside. I know everyone has been saying it, but I, too, am about ready for chillier, autumn weather to get here. I'm ready for pumpkins and running in sub-90-degree-weather-without-bipolar-rain-storms-every-five-minutes. And speaking of running, I keep forgetting that I have a half marathon coming up! The Disney Wine & Dine is in November. I cannot believe it's almost been a year since the last one. Crazy, dude. Dear Will Ferrel, You're hilarious. If you haven't already, go see "The Campaign." I lol'd the entire time.
