LINK-END ROUND-UP: August 3, 2018

Stained Couture’s weekly series, Link-End Round-Up, features interesting reads I read from around the internet this week.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: August 03, 2018 | STAINED COUTURE

So, it only took me three days, but I’ve finally come to terms that it’s really August already. Now, it’s time to get prepared for Fall. I have so many cute things I want to try and wear and products I want to try. I finally figured what hair products my new hair loves and surprisingly it’s the same products I used when I went natural well over 10 years.

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been experimenting with intermittent fasting. FYI, intermittent fasting is not eating for a most of the day and eating only during a certain amount of time. For example, fasting from 7pm – 11am and then eating only from 11am-7pm. I decided to try it once I actually thought that I don’t move enough throughout the day to earn 3 meals a day. Sitting in front of a computer for 7-8 hours a day will not burn breakfast and lunch. I do get up a few times a day to go to the bathroom and refresh my large cup of ice water, but still doesn’t add up.

Like I said, I’ve only been experimenting with this fast. In the morning on my way to work, I stop by Whole Foods hot bar and get some scrambled eggs, a couple slices of bacon, and breakfast potatoes or biscuit with gravy. It sounds like a big breakfast, which it is. However, it’s filling and ties me over throughout the day until I get home from work around 5. When I get home, I eat my second and final meal of the day, which is a only protein and vegetables. No carbs or sugar. Every since I started intermittent fasting, I don’t feel bloated, I feel lighter, and I don’t crave sweets. The latter alone is a reason to keep trying this out. It’s been a very interesting learning session and I think I’m going to keep at for awhile.

This weekend, I want to start cleaning out my closet by starting to transition summer options to fall options. Also, take this time to get rid of things I don’t imagine wearing again by tossing it or donating. Here’s to a great weekend and see ya’ next week.
