If I’m just being honest, I’m getting a little tired of Weekend Recaps. They are so so nice to look back on (like a virtual scrapbook!), but to some extent I also feel pressure to make my life seem interesting when more often than not it isn’t. Sure, I occasionally go to some cool event or try out a new restaurant, but a lot of the time I make pancakes, marathon TV shows and if I’m lucky, sleep A LOT.
I’ve mentioned this before, but at times I feel like I’m too connected to my phone. While it allows me to keep in touch with so many wonderful people and photograph moments I want to remember, it also takes away from my ability to just be in the moment. I’ve come to learn that if you try hard enough you can make anyone’s life look fabulous over the internet/social media, but I don’t want to be that person. I have said from the start that I always want to be authentic and transparent with you.
My life is very average and I am more than okay with that. But here’s where you come in. I’m asking for your feedback about my non-food or fitness related posts. Do you like them? Clearly I am incredibly narcissistic so life recap posts would never disappear for good, but I’m wondering if they need to happen on a weekly basis. Would you rather see more recipes or workouts? Would you prefer restaurant reviews or my Random Ramblings?
I feel kind of weird asking for advice because at the end of the day I blog for me. But at the same time I’ve developed a relationship with you, my incredible readers (please tell me it’s mutual!) and I would never want to let you down.
It would be so helpful if you could give me some feedback! For now here’s my interesting or not-so-interesing weekend recap. I’ll let you decide.
We’re officially 13 days into January and I’ve managed to only miss one day of my Salad-a-Day mission. Not bad! I think this massive salad I had from The Berkeley Cafe on Friday made up for my lack of greens on Saturday. Agreed? Please say yes.
The only upside to waking up early on Saturday was having time to make these Apple Chai Pancakes. Unlike Amanda who doesn’t have the patience to make pancakes for breakfast, I don’t have the patience to do a full-out photo shoot, so like my Mexican HoCho Pancakes I’m gonna make you wait for the recipe. Please don’t hate me.
Pancakes make me feel like I have superpowers or something so I hit the gym for a killer leg circuit. It turns out that pancakes cannot protect you from DOMS. My legs hurt…
If you know me well then you know my lack of patience for waiting in lines. Probably the #1 reason I left NYC. Khao San Road on the other hand is 100% worth the wait. Seriously amazeballs. Get the Green Curry and Bangkok Pad Thai. Just looking at the picture makes me want to eat the whole meal over again.
Sunday was productive but I’ll spare you the details unless you need a bedtime story (email me…). I did however manage to polish off an entire bowl of my White Bean Kale and Artichoke Dip while watching the Golden Globes except I didn’t have any plain yogurt on hand so I used strawberry. I would highly suggest you don’t make this substitution…I ate it anyway.
So there you have it! If you skipped through the text and just scrolled through the pictures you may want to read the first few paragraphs where I admit to my boring life. Not sorry about it at all.
Would SO appreciate your feedback on Weekend Recap posts so please share! Love em’ or ditch em’?
