PD has been a little crazy recently with the amount of products I've been receiving to review - and there are TONS more to come, trust me! - that I decided to take a little break today and just have a nice, simple post!
This week has past week been really crazy for me, has anyone else had one of those weeks? Last Thursday I had all sorts of projects and assignments due, mock interviews, Chipotle plans, RA staff meeting, and a Forensics crime scene photo project to work on. It was nuts. But you know what? I plowed through it, and here I am now!

Then, it's on to Christmas. I feel like Thanksgiving has been pretty much skipped this year because everyone around me already has their Christmas decorations up. This is a problem. Thanksgiving is a holiday too, people! And a good one! Has anyone else noticed this? What do you think?
However, I have been struggling a lot with one thing this week, not related to the Thanksgiving/Christmas battle, school, or the stress that comes with it: my weight.
Pretty much every women and some men struggle with this topic. I have always struggled with it. I'm really upset with myself right now because I love to snack, even when I'm not hungry, and that snacking is leading to some unwanted weight gain.
I originally lost about 27 pounds, but now I've gained some back to where I've only lost about 15 pounds. Still a good amount to lose, but I'm frustrated. The thing is, I don't have much time to work out unless I wake up at 6:45am (and I DONT want to do that...), and when I could work out I'm extremely lazy and would rather lot. Plus it's hard to fit into my busy schedule.
Then there's the problem of my continuous snacking. I just love food so much that I constantly want to eat! It's terrible! I've been trying my best to stop this problem and take control back, but it's not easy. What to do? Has anyone else had similar problems?
I have another struggle I've been debating: whether or not to stay "vegan." I love food, and I want to taste things... although I really enjoy being vegan and I know all of the health benefits, I want to forgo the label and just call myself a vegetarian. I would be trying to still eat as healthfully as possible and would still be eating and using many vegan products, with the occasional bit of dairy in my diet. I've already been doing it recently - been calling myself "95% vegan" and indulging in small bits of dairy-filled foods daily. I feel like just trying to eat as healthfully as possible is fine as long as I don't eat tons of dairy all the time. What do you guys think? Has anyone else been through this struggle?
How do you prevent yourself from overeating/constantly snacking?
What do you think of the battle between Thanksgiving and Christmas?
Have struggled with the "vegan" label?
