How Pinterest is Trashing My Diet

Ok, so I’m somewhat surprised about the recent explosive growth of Pinterest, a new social network that has been around for a while now (in social network terms). However, that being said, I’ve been spending a lot of time on it lately. I like to say it’s mostly for work, but we all know it’s mostly just a harmless distraction.

Unfortunately though, it’s putting a strain on my new healthy lifestyle. How, you ask?

The food pins!

If anything sabotages my diet, it’s going to be the food pins on Pinterest (and surprisingly not the fact that I work above a pizza place). So far though, I’m being extremely good. I’m still drooling over the photos, but that’s all.

Drool, repin for later, and move on.

On another note, I watched The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last week with my book club. I thoroughly enjoyed it, probably more so than the Swedish movie. First of all, Daniel Craig. Second of all, Trent Reznor. Third, the changes they made in this movie were a little more tolerable than the changes they made in the Swedish movie.

I still haven’t read the second or third books in the series, although now that I still have the first book fresh in my mind, I’m thinking of reading it while I have a lull (I’m a month ahead on my reading for my book club so I have a few weeks to fit in another book.

I did start reading a book The Queen’s Fool: A Novel (Boleyn) (affiliate link) by Philippa Gregory. I’ve never read any of her books before, but I tend to like period novels like this one plus I’ve heard a lot of good things about her.

Today is just going to be a quick update. I’ll probably post a video update on Wednesdays o stay tuned!
