Today + Weekend: Feed and The Girl Before

This Google Chrome Extension Momentum is great. This morning’s picture is just breathtaking. 

Currently I am sitting drinking coffee, writing this post and enjoying my essential oil diffuser. I don’t have anything fancy, just an inexpensive diffuser and essential oils from Walmart. Works like a charm though. 

Plans for the day:

  • Evaluate a 3 day food log
  • Create some handouts
  • Catch up on magazines

Got a pretty tough schedule….ha!

But I will also be checking out some new blogs to read/new people to follow on social media. 

This weekend plans:

Watch the movie “Feed”: Have you heard about this one? I have already heard better reviews on this movie than “To the Bone,” which is great because I wasn’t a fan of “To the Bone.”

I spoke on my social media outlet my feelings toward the movie. 

 

I’m already excited about this movie because just from the trailer you experience the ED voice, the trauma that started the ED and the sense of control, and the trauma an ED can cause (ex: tube feed insertion.) This trailer already shows more about eating disorders than “To the Bone,” really portrayed.

So like I said, I’m pumped about this film and will give my review on it after I watch it this weekend. 

I also hope to read more of my book. I subscribe to BookBub emails. This sends me one book that is on sale each day. Or you can login to your account and see all the books on sale. I sometimes will buy them when they are 0.99 or 1.99 for my Kindle, but most times I’ll check the library ebooks and see if I can put my name on the reserve list. That’s what I did for this one.

Guilty slow reader over here (I don’t know why since I have so much time now,) but I was half way through All the Missing Girls and am waiting to check it back out, so I started a new book called The Girl Before. Both books are thrillers, because ever since I read Gone Girl and Girl on the Train, I have become obsessed. Why does the word “girl” have to exist in all the titles though?! Anyway, you can click my affiliate links below to read the description of each one!

So like I said, I hope to catch up on some reading over this weekend. Maybe if it stops being so gosh darn hot (heat advisory,) then I’ll pop out for a run outside. I’m looking forward to next week’s weather already!
Have a great weekend!!

Victoria’s Secret Giveaway!!

To catch everyone’s attention first of all I have $10 to giveaway for Victoria’s Secret. I bought 2 swimsuit tops and they came in the mail today and in with them was a gift certificate for “$10 off minimum of $10 purchase”

It isn’t good on clearance purchases though. So if you want to enter the giveaway just leave a comment telling me what you would buy with it!

It expires the 31st of July so let’s choose the winner on Saturday and you have until the end of the day Friday to enter. Sound good?

Now did you miss me this weekend? I went home and had a nice relaxing weekend. I have a lot of reviews ahead so hopefully you don’t get bored!

To start off, Friday morning before work I was making tuna salad for a sandwich to take for lunch and look what happened to me.

This egg was stuck in the carton and I was trying to pull it out and of course cracked it and then it splattered all over me.

Good thing I didn’t like the top I was wearing anyway. It was friday and friday is jeans day Smile

Lunch! I seriously have fallen in love with the Snyder’s Peanut Butter Sandwich Pretzels! I bought them with a coupon and wish they weren’t so expensive because they have become an addiction, not going to lie.

I saw Harry Potter this weekend and pretty much think this one was THE best out of them all. I loved every second of it.

I also went to Walgreens in hopes of getting Sally Hansen Crackle nail polish because I had some coupons to make it a bit better price. However, sitting right next to it was the brand Pure Ice and they came out with crackle nail polish too and instead of 6.99, these were 3.99. So I got it to try out!

Sorry for the picture quality, my phone was the only thing near me at the time.

I did run the past few days, I just didn’t take any pictures.

Thursday and Friday were both 6 miles
Saturday was 6 miles
Sunday was 8 miles
Monday is an off day

I also spent time icing my legs because they have been FATIGUED

And last but not least, I went to Target to get some good deals today after work.
