snapshots from my week | arm workouts, cobb salads, and birthday cards

hi guys!! welcome back to maggie’s doodles ๐Ÿ˜

how pretty is that featured image! the shade of purple ahh ๐Ÿ’œ

it’s time for a life update! i’m writing this right before the post goes live at 7 AM EST.

i keep feeling not like myself. it comes and goes, and i find that in being mentally uncomfy, i’m wanting to change my hobbies up, cancel plans, and hide away for a while. it’s a combination of low hormones and different changes happening around me, not even to me, that are making me unsettled.

it’s little things like wanting to change my featured image style, or post a doodle lyrics today instead of these snapshots, or feeling dissatisfied with my content. changes like this aren’t bad to make, but when i want to because i’m unhappy or feeling negatively, i don’t like the outcome later. i have to hold back and not let my emotions take over everything.

in the past i’ve thought making a bunch of changes would help, but really what i need is peace, and things to primarily stay the same. when i’m feeling more balanced again, that’s when i can evaluate one change at a time and know for sure that i want to be doing it.

i wanted to share that because if you’re feeling some of the same ways, you’re not alone! i love you guys and i know we’ve got this ๐Ÿฅฐ

let’s check out last week’s snapshots now!

i’ve LOVED working out recently! especially arm, leg, and ab workouts, and various full body workouts. OH~ and i found out that i love barre!

wanna check out two iconic workouts i fully recommend? there’s this standing abs workout, and this barre legs workout! they’re both by fitbymik, my fave fitness instructor at the moment.

my aunt got me a birthday card!! ๐Ÿฅฐ i thought it was really sweet, and i love the design and colors!

OKAY~ but doesn’t this cobb salad look gorgeous?? the artistry is smackin’, haha!

so this super interesting plant is called a spiraea! we have teeny spiraea bushes at cfa and the flowers are incredibly tiny. i love how the picture above turned out!

look at the buds! they look like… little rolled-up paper balls:D (interesting comparison, huh)

my dad has been driving me to cfa most days i work! i appreciate him driving me. these mornings end up being so beautiful ๐Ÿ˜

georgia can’t decide what season it is?? it was BAKING hot a couple days last week like summer, my allergies were hugely flaring up like it was spring, and now it’s cold and blustery like it’s late fall ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‚ c’mon and decide!

lololol may the fourth have been with ya! i had fun playing around with samuel’s new star wars toys

i got taco bell after work one day! the chips and cheese dip were bomb, the pink lemonade/sierra mist drink was EPIC, the cinnamon twists were delish, and the cheesy gordita crunch? YUM

another view of the sky!

i helped clean up the girls’ room! we need some new containers to be able to start on organizing their toys. we’re making progress ๐Ÿ˜

thanks for reading! i hope you had a great week. let me know what your plans are for this week! i’d love to chat!

which pic/s were your fave?

  2. Yep, I had a great week. Thanks and it looks like you did too. Hope you feel better. I felt like that for a while last year and it was terrible!

    Those dumbbells are a beautiful shade of pink๐ŸŒผ. The card is really cute! Girl that salad and taco bell do be looking good. And a little (just a little bit) too pretty to eat๐Ÿ˜‚. That flower is really pretty and the buds do look like little balls of paper – very interesting and spot on comparison๐Ÿ˜‰.
    I always appreciate my dad driving me to literally anywhere I have to go. Hope you keep making progress with the girls’ room and that you have an amazing week๐ŸŒˆ
