Lately I've realized that there are two things that I probably legitimately have an addiction to. And that I just may need to do something about.
Sweets and social media.
I do not think there is anything wrong with eating sweets and have no desire to rid them from my diet. However, I do think that I eat too much of them and embarrassingly think about sweets all the time. Like the second I'm done eating a meal (even breakfast) or when I am bored walking around in circles soothing Addilyn. I do believe that I'd probably have more energy and feel better about myself if I ate healthier. I don't think I eat that unhealthy in general, but sweets are no doubt my downfall. Before getting pregnant I worked out every day which definitely balanced my dessert intake and with not working out close to every day I definitely need to eat less desserts.
And then there's social media. It's like I am antsy if I don't check my phone every twenty minutes or so. Like I need to see how many people "liked" my last instagram picture or if I got any more emails or comments on my blog post. It's as if I have to read them or see them right away or they may not be there when I check later. It's really quite ridiculous.
Since having Addilyn I spend way more time on my phone. I look at it when I'm nursing her or when she's sleeping on me. And even check it often when she's playing with me on the floor. I definitely don't think there is anything wrong with social media or using it and I have no desire to stop using it altogether, but I think I need to be more mindful of my time. Or more so how it affects my attitude since I end up doing lots of comparing, judging and assuming when I read through social media.
I don't know what this looks like with either of these, I just know that I need to work on them. I want all these things in moderation and know that I am currently using both too much.
Now please tell me you can relate? Because I really don't understand people who say that aren't "dessert" people. Is that really possible?
