Chickpea Greek Salad

It’s weird, like, I have all the time in the world right now.

Yet less motivation than ever to make healthy choices.

For a minute there, I was a real big workout guy. Lifting weights and exercising hardcore everyday. All before my work day began!

Now my lazy behind is snoozing until 7. I’m lucky if I get up, ride the lil stationary bike and go for a quick walk around the ‘hood. I’m just really taking this time of rest to a new level. Let’s not get started on diet, either. I’ve basically dubbed myself the quarantine snack queen. I found a box of graham crackers in the back of the pantry and just destroyed them. I’m a bottomless trash panda. I think I’m letting myself go because I really don’t plan to interact with humans or take photos for the foreseeable future? It’s kind of nice not to be totally consumed with my appearance for a change, though! Or just my general health and wellness.

I’m gonna fleek when my motivation returns right smack dab in the middle of bikini season.
