In all seriousness, I'm so happy that everyone can enjoy the fun ride of legal marriage. The cherry on top of that is reading the comment section on Fox News stories and seeing people's heads explode.

In other news, apparently I'm not immune to normal human things like struggling with avoiding weight gain after starting an office job.
The issue is threefold: switching from a reasonable active SAHM mom lifestyle to a desk job, eating too much unhealthy shit, and getting older. I know, this is a shocking new problem that no one else has ever had. I could lie and say I'm trying to get on top of this issue for health reasons, but mostly it's vanity and my desire to feel less like a sausage in casing when I wear certain clothing items. For clarity, I'm talking about maybe 5-8lbs of weight gain. It's enough that my shorts aren't fitting comfortably but not enough that anyone besides me notices or gives a shit.
I have a pretty elaborate plan for remedying this situation: track what I eat and stop eating so much junk food.
I've been using MyFitnessPal for a week now and I've learned a few fun facts about myself.
1. I eat SO MUCH sodium. I knew I liked salt, but shit man. That app is always like "Bitch, are you serious right now with all this sodium?"
2. My food is not well distributed. More so on workdays, I'm eating about 50% of my food at night. I know this because the website helpfully shows me how much I suck at nutrition with pie charts.
3. I might have a slight sugar problem. When people say "I'm addicted to sugar" I never had a "Oh, me too!" reaction. In my mind, being addicted to something means going beyond just enjoying the taste. It's not like I'm hiding sugar packets in my bra and sneaking off to the bathroom for a fix.
The only significant diet changes I've made is giving up Coke on most days (I KNOW) and lunch dessert. Yes, I was eating lunch dessert. Yes, I was completely surprised when my shorts got tight.
I'm pretty sure it will take me as long to fix this issue as it took me to create it, so brace yourself for a few months of bitching about that judgy MyFitnessPal app.
That link is actually for my food and exercise log so read along and enjoy some schadenfreude on a Monday morning. Feel free to email me with nutritionally focused taunts.
What would be the hardest thing for you to give up from your daily eats? I dream about Coke. I thought cutting back to one can a day would be enough but nope.
