The boyfriend and I trying to catch them all haha!
I’m sure a lot of you are sick of hearing about Pokemon Go because it’s seriously everywhere. I just wanted to share a few thoughts and maybe explain the game to those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about. The infamous Pokemon I would call it a brand by now because they have everything, but they started out with the playing cards and gameboy games that my little brother used to play along with some of the kids my age back in the day. Fast forward to 2016, there is a game/app where you can actually catch Pokemon in real life. No there aren’t real Pokemon scattered everywhere, they are scattered everywhere through your phone using GPS and you use your camera (unless you turn AR off which I highly recommend if you have terrible aim when the screen is moving haha) to see the Pokemon creatures in front of you. The whole idea of this game was to get kids OUTSIDE again. I don’t think I’ve seen this many people outside since my generation of kids grew up. Adults who were kids playing with the Pokemon cards at one point are also playing. A lot of infamous internet memes have been started and some of them are really funny. I personally play the game while I’m walking because it brings more excitement to my walk, or my friends and I will play here and there. Now, mind you, I’m in my late 20’s. I don’t mind if people make fun of the game and think it’s stupid because you’re entitled to your own opinion, but once you start insulting and making extremely unnecessary and rude comments about the person playing that game, that’s when you’ve gone a little too far. There was a veteran who wrote to Nintendo stating that he has PTSD and thanks to this game he was able to interact with strangers again and feel like a normal human being because his son got him into the game. There are good and bad things about this game, but people just let the Pokemasters have their fun, they just gotta catch em all.
Round 2 of 21 Day Fix
I start Round 2 of the 21 Day Fix on Monday! I’m pumped (insert gains emoji here). If you don’t know what the 21 Day Fix is, it’s a program which teaches you the proper way to eat, what your intake should be, and what your work outs should be. I’ve learned how to cook a little bit thanks to this program. The 21 days is to get you started and you cannot have cheat days. Once you’re done the woman who started 21 Day Fix, Autumn, states that her motto is as long as she’s eating clean 90% of the time you can cheat that extra 10%. My cheats aren’t even cheats anymore because I’ve gotten so used to this program. This isn’t a diet, it’s a complete lifestyle change. So far I’ve lost 13 lbs, and inches all throughout my body. I’ve had multiple people tell me how much weight I’ve lost, some of which are coworkers that I don’t even think they know my name haha. The great part is, I’m only halfway to my goal. I think once I start losing a little more I’m going to start a health and fitness series just like I had two years ago. I can teach you little things here and there that I learned throughout this process and maybe even give you some tastey recipes!
Slacking on YouTube
I want to greatly apologize about my YouTube slacking. I have not uploaded a video and the worst part is I have all of these ideas for videos but either haven’t edited them or haven’t even filmed them. I’ll try to get some more things together this weekend, but I can’t make any promises. This healthy eating thing has consumed most of my life haha!
My baby boy’s 11th birthday was yesterday. Alright, he’s not a boy, he’s a dog, but he’s a baby in my eyes. I got him when I was 18 for my birthday and he ended up becoming the family dog because since I was always working or at school (even though I commuted to college, I was still always there) so he ended up getting really close with my mom. I can’t believe he’s 11. I remember when we first got him and he was small enough to fit in my hand. I want to wish him an extremely happy birthday with more years to come!
41 More Days until Poland
Y’all, I have 41 more days left until I leave for Poland. I’m super excited because this year I’m going with my mom. A lovely girls trip back to the motherland. Unfortunately I won’t be there for 2 weeks like every other time but I’ll be out of the country for 10 days. I’ll try to stay a little active on social media, especially Instagram but I can’t make any promises. I will also have posts prepared for while I’m gone.
