I don't know the exact number of days we have been in quarantine here in Michigan, or what day it is unless I look at my phone. I do know since I have been staying at home, I have picked up some new habits. Some good, some not so much.

Unless you have been under a rock, or do not have any social media accounts - than you know a majority of people are doing the following,

  • Eating
  • Drinking
  • Binge watching TV/movies
  • Sleeping
  • Repeat

I rarely see a of mention of exercise. But who wants to see someone doing a jumping jack, when you can see what they ate for dinner instead on the 'Crap I Cooked In Quarantine' Facebook page. Am I right?

All of that being said, I am trying to balance the big three - eating, drinking, and exercise. Cooking at home has been a big change for me. I did not realize how often Nick (my boyfriend), and I went out to eat until we couldn't. We have certainly ordered to go food during the quarantine, but not 4 to 5 times a week as normal. What is killing me the most is bread. I went so long not eating bread, now I can't get enough of it - or any carb for that matter. WTF?

Here is one that will blow your mind, I have not been drinking tequila either. MIND BLOWN! Early on during the quarantine I finished what was left in the house, and have not bought any since. When I say finished what was in the house I mean 10 bottles, just kidding there was only one. Wine or vodka seem to be my go to choice now.

I guess that leaves exercise. Nick and I have been walking throughout the quarantine. This week we started more of a work out. Not making any promises, it is hard to stick to physical fitness when I am thinking about my next meal, my next drink, and my next show to binge watch.

Below is my list of good and bad habits I have developed since quarantine. So here are my answers to my own question are as follows,

Bad Habits Since Quarantine

  • Eating bread
  • Eating spaghetti
  • Eating pizza
  • Eating bread (had to be mentioned again)
  • Talking to a Cabbage Patch Doll daily, his name is Roscoe.

Good Habits Since Quarantine

  • Walking
  • Walking to get food (does that count as a good habit?)
  • Not drinking tequila
  • Cooking at home
  • I have not killed Nick for chewing too loud, breathing too loud, or for snoring. (Probably a habit I should keep).

Man, I am not fun anymore. I can't wait until I can go out to dinner and drink tequila! Let me know what good, and bad habits you have developed in quarantine.
