My Relationship With Food And Why Diet Culture Sucks

My relationship with food is confusing. I have all the knowledge I need to know what foods to be eating more or less of, I know all about portion sizes and I even know about macros. However, when I see food, my mind pretends to know nothing and just grabs whatever it can.

My Autumn Bucket List 2020

Summer has been a pretty odd experience this year so I’m glad that it’s finally coming to an end. Although, I would say that about summer any year because I just really don’t like the heat too much.

I’ve always been a bigger fan of the colder weather so naturally I prefer Autumn and Winter over Summer. Autumn has just always warmed my heart. It makes me think of fresh starts and beautiful aesthetics.

Whenever it starts to feel a little bit cooler, I start to look forward to movie nights under a blanket with a hot chocolate and marshmallows.

But anyway, since Autumn is here and has been for about a week now, I figured I would share my 2020 Autumn bucket list with you all…

Starting a new month has always been a pretty exciting time for me. I love the idea that a new start is here and I get to reevaluate my life and my goals. Am I making progress on my goals?
