It’s almost a New Year 🙂
Can you believe the new year is approaching so soon!? I honestly remember 2000 like it was yesterday… but I was only 8 years old… weiiird.
Yesterday I had a delicious breakfast featuring Bear Naked banana nut cereal (soo good) with fage 2%, banana, and cinnamon raisin swirl PB
Then I spent the day with Gardner. To be honest i’m not really sure what we did which means probably not much at all haha. typical.
For lunch I made a wrap with the rest of TJ’s tuna and ate it with these parmesan cheddar soy crisp things, an apple, & carrots.
I had IOP & an individual session yesterday as well. I wasn’t myself- I’ve been feeling low on energy lately despite my increased intake in food. The people at the center said it could be because my body is using a lot of energy to restore the nutrients? I don’t know. But nevertheless, IOP was fine and I was able to work out some of my anxiety with new years eve & what not.
For dinner, I brought this frozen meal I bought because it basically had all my exchanges in one!
I had never had Cedarlane frozen foods before so I wasn’t sure what to expect but this was soo good!! Very nutritious, all natural, and satisfying! I also bought a burrito dish that I am excited to try.
For a snack later I had a Green Superfood Chocolate Bar (yumm..it’s growing on me!) & I hung out with one of my best friends from high school which was fun!
Today I started off with a classic breakfast of mine but it was what I was craving
Then I had to go get fitted for my bridesmaid dress!! If you don’t remember, I am going to be my cousin’s bridesmaid in July.. i’m so excited 🙂
Lunch was really good today! I made a turkey sandwich on a whole wheat sandwich thin with 1 light laughing cow wedge, some mozzarella cheese and onions. Then I stuck it on the panini maker… it was amazing!! I love the taste of those laughing cow wedges. I also had some cheddar sun chips, an apple, carrots, and a few unpictured almonds (gotta get my 2 servings of fat!)
I finally have a plan tonight for new years haha. I am going to dinner at a restaurant called Haiku with Gardner & 6 other friends who are couples at 6:30 and then we will probably go hang out at one of our friend’s houses on campus (Ohio State) & then go to a party. It should be a fun night!
I’ve been thinking a lot about New Year’s Resolutions (as most other bloggers have been) & though I have so much to work on, right now I need to just go easy on myself and let my GOAL be to just stay on track, get healthy, and be the best friend, girlfriend, daughter, sister, and student I can be.
To be honest, I couldn’t be happier about the start of a new year. Though 2009 had several positives and blessings, I have gone through a lot this past year (more than I have shared on this blog) and I am ready for change. I am ready to embrace my new life and journey with open arms and I want to be able to look back on 2010 next year with a smile. Maybe then, on the brink of 2011, I will be able to have a great recap post of my year, but right now I can’t do that for 2009. I’d prefer to move on and look forward. I’ve loved reading other blogger’s recaps, but for me it is best to move on from this year, accept what I have learned and know that 2010 will bring much happiness, health, and love.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
2009 was hard, it brought challenges and it brought failures, but at the same time I learned so much about myself. I learned that I can get through more than I imagined and I learned that I am so lucky to have people in my life who I love and who love me.
Have an amazing night tonight! I’ll be thinking of you all 🙂
