first I want to start this post by saying thank you SO much to everyone who has been so accepting of me in the blogging community! Seriously, I appreciate the comments/advice/support more than you may realize. It’s great and has made this sometimes difficult road sooo much easier/less stressful. :]
the rest of my weekend was pretty relaxing/uneventful & spent studying/chillin w/ friends/spendin’ quality time w/ the boy/enjoyin the unexpected beautiful weather!
Saturday it was super nice out so me n gar decided to go for a run outside. This was a big deal because I pretty much avoid running outdoors at all costs :-[. I know it’s bad…. but I’m such a sucker for the treadmill because I can flip through a magazine, listen to music, watch tv, etc. etc.
But this run was hands down the best run of my life. It was so freeing. I didn’t even think about stopping, I just thought about how beautiful everything was that surrounded me. Not to be super cheeseball, but I honestly almost got a little choked up because I felt so lucky to be running outside with the most amazing boy and just to feel so alive.
at some point on Saturday this bar was eaten
it was dark chocolate almond nugo bar and to be honest, I didn’t really like it. like a 5/10. It just wasn’t that good? but the nutritionals weren’t too shabby at all.
Saturday night dinner SUCKKKED. not even going to lie. for some reason whenever I eat my cafeteria’s plain grilled chicken breasts, I feel sick :-\ idk why. Nonetheless, I shot some pix!
my eats Sunday were soo standard & because I realized how boring I was, I didn’t even photograph them. But can you blame me- I am in college after all!! –> options = limited.
dinner was delicious though! after a sorority thannng i met my boyfriend at one of my fav quick restaurants.. COSI!
I got the Shanghai chicken salad, an apple, & whole wheat bread– soooo good
cosi was always a safe option when i was super restrictive but I would always order the lowest calorie salad (188) with a side soup that had like 100 calories and eat some carrots with it. I was proud of myself because this time I ate the whole piece of bread. I NEVER eat all the bread…ever. seriously.
on the way back, I stopped at Starbucks because my g-ma sent me a 25 $ gift card randomly!
got my fav– grande americano with a shot of sugar free hazelnut! yummmm. LOVVEE the holiday cups so much!
do you have a starbucks drink you always order? If so, what is it?
Monday has been a pretty typical monday. Started out with a yogurt mess that went unpictured because I was super rushed to eat it 😦 I met with my TA & she went over my paper and said it was good. I was relieved! I also drank my ensure around 11
Lunch was delicious… & still photographed despite it’s repetitiveness.
for a snack I had the key lime pie lara bar!
it was pretty good, but i’d give it like a 7/10 because I really LOVE my key lime pie and i was slightly disappointed at the lack of limeness in this bar.
dinner tonight was a really delicious salad from the cafeteria! it was contained spring mix, diced tomatoes, onions, carrots, red onions, mushrooms, hard boiled egg, feta cheese, chicken, & lite olive oil vinagrette dressing.. 🙂
tonight has been spent studying & drinking an ensure.
something excited happen. Now for all you bloggers in college, you know how exciting it is to get a package. I saw I had a package slip so I was super excited… I saw it was from my cousin who just got engaged. I opened it up & inside was a fortune cookie.
I naturally cracked open the cookie & read the fortune & it said…
“I am so fortunate to have you in my life. will you be my bride’s maid? Love, Carly”
I was so excited! i’ve never been a bride’s maid before 🙂
not to mention- it was SUCH a cute way to ask.
on another note- with the weight gain, i have seen an increase of about 1.5 pounds. while this makes me happy, there is still part of me that is resilient to gain. I don’t understand why! It makes me so mad. I know i need to gain weight, but yet I still have this weird mentality about it :-\
well i’m off to bed.. i need to catch up on some zzz’s. hope you have a great Tuesday!
