Diet Update, Wednesday and Magic?
For the entire day I searched my brain for something to write and publish today. Initially I was going to write a post about mental health and the holidays but that has been postponed (but will be posted soon). Yes, I have fallen prey to the seductive succubus that is procrastination. Furthermore, I am currently working on three different books so I am pretty drained creatively. And I took a break to watch Wednesday so I didn’t have too much time for a longer post.
So instead, I decided to write a little something about me, myself and I. Because you can’t spell Lifesfinewhine without I.
As most of you know by now if you have read my recent posts, I am embarking on a journey towards healthier eating. I very much dislike calling it a diet because I find that the word “diet” is often associated with losing weight. I have no intention of gaining or losing any weight at the moment. After a long time, I am finally happy with where I am at. And it’s nice to be at that place.
However, I have been eating too many unhealthy things this year. And that’s why I wanted to start eating healthier. More raw fruits and vegetables, almost no oil and just overall very healthy foods. I’m not going to lie, I thought it would be very difficult. I’m someone who likes my junk food. But it’s been two weeks now and it’s really not that bad at all. In fact, I’m quite enjoying eating healthy and it’s really helped my body. I sleep better, I have more energy, my concentration is better and my mum (who is also on this diet with me) said her eyesight has gotten better. And I really don’t feel like I’m missing out because even without oil my meals have been delicious. Everything we have made so far has been amazing and so my mum and I are continuing to eat this way. I will be sharing some dishes I’ve made in the very near future.
I have finally started watching Wednesday. For those of you interested in the show, it’s on Netflix. And here is the trailer:
It’s based on the Addams family. Wednesday and the Addams family have always been #goals. At least for me. Ever since I watched The Addams Family for the first time as a teenager, I loved it. And Wednesday is one of my favourite characters from any movie ever.
And that’s why I was terrified when I heard about this show. When it comes to Netflix it could go either way. It could be the best show ever or it could be an insult to all that is Wednesday Addams. I have only seen the first episode so far with my family and we quite enjoyed it thoroughly. Glad Netflix did a good job with it because Wednesday is iconic and I would be so mad if they ruined her character. Of course, there is still time for me to hate it so let’s see. I’ll share more thoughts on it once I am done watching the entire season.
I also don’t normally hit on TV character (that’s a lie I do, I’ve had a huge crush on so many of them) but everyone in Wednesday is exceptionally good looking. And not in a fake botoxed way. I feel like a teenager again. Sometimes I forget that I am almost in my late twenties now. Being an adult is weird. Can still very much relate to Wednesday though.
This is not really a topic deserving of its own subheading but I like writing my heading in threes. I have been drinking a lot of tea lately due to my horrible cold and it’s been lovely. The tea I mean, not the cold. The cold has sucked to the fullest. I forgot how much I love hibiscus tea until just now. As I type this I am sipping the most delicious hibiscus tea after so many months. I’ve been so engrossed in trying other flavours that I forgot about this one. I will most definitely be having more tomorrow morning.
