Royal Round Up, Vol 4: Week 13

 What a week.. it was another weird one that was half fast, and half slow. I didn't feel like myself; allergies and what I think was a little non Covid related virus. I feel better now, physically, but mentally I'm so/so. I know I just told you all that I quit WW and changed to just counting calories but that's changed again.

Over the past few weeks I've felt a change in my body; I'm more bloated and it's a little harder for me to lose weight. I woke up this morning, saw on the scale that I gained two pounds and was sent into a spiral. I immediately signed up for WW again because I feel like that's the only way to maybe get rid of the weight. It's worked in the past and maybe my three month break will help me mentally.

I also made an appointment with a nutritionist (before I signed up for WW) to figure out what's going on with my body. I just don't know what the issue is if I work out daily, drink tons of water, and eat well. It's really frustrating and if I'm being totally honest, it ruined my day.

Right now, I'm in my bed, watching Dateline and trying to stay in an upbeat mood. Tomorrow is my best friend's bridal shower which is definitely an occasion worth celebrating and then Sunday will be more low key with food shopping, meal planning and some writing. 



I hope you all have a great weekend, let's get into the roundup.

Pink Positivity of the Week

Despite my so/so week, I did attend a writer's workshop with my favorite author, Hannah Orenstein. It was through a new platform called "Study Circles" and I loved hearing her book writing tips and just interacting with other people who want to write a book. It was awesome! 

I also had my first article published in HelloGiggles. This was a little different for me because I did more research than my usual feature articles and interviewed a doctor. It's about doom scrolling and how you can stop the habit... something I think we're all guilty of and need some help with.

What I Bought This Week

It was my unofficial end to Lent this week. I got my stimulus, needed to buy last minute outfits for the bridal shower, and just said hell with it. I went a month without frivolous shopping and I think it helped me break the habit. I went a little nuts this week with things I've been wanting but also stopped myself from a lot of shopping too!
