First off, this is my 50th post!! I can’t believe I’ve already done 50- love blogging 🙂
I’ll admit it, I’m a Real World follower– proud of it! ha. I can’t get enough of that trashhh, I remember watching Vegas & loving it and i was way toooo young to be watching haha.
I was pleasantly surprised when, while watching the Real World DC, a real and important issue was discussed. One of the roommates, Ty, told Callie (another roommate) that she wasn’t skinny enough to be in playboy. Callie deals with self-image issues like so many of us do. This brought up the issue of body image and how messed up it is that people have to feel like they must be so thin in order to be accepted. I was impressed that Real World brought attention to this issue- yay!
Did any of you watch this? What did you think about it?
Anywho, onto what you foodies really care about… the food! ha 🙂
Lunch yesterday was pretty standard & consisted of a flat out wrap with turkey & cheese, almonds, pretzels, pears, & apple straws & carrots- a very large (in volume) lunch!
Dinner was with Gardner’s parents & my parents- it was a good time. Our parents bonded with some drinks haha.. Our Moms may or may not have done a sake bomb..yep! Now, I was sort of freaking out because the roll I ordered ended up having fried stuff in it- but I ate it anyways and it felt so good to just ignore that terrible, Gertrude voice telling me not to eat anything fried. I felt like i ate alot but after talking it out with Gar, i realized it wasn’t too much… it was what I need.
I got miso soup, a chicken salad, & a roll that i ate like 3/4 of. It sounded soo good because it said it had acorn squash in it but the acorn squash was fried 😦 delicous nonetheless
Me & Gar were awesome and played Mario Party for the rest of the night – I won, duh. I am always Mario & he is always Yoshi. It’s what we do.
My afternoon snack featured this bar
My Mom got ticketes to the OSU v. Wisconsin basketball game so we went to dinner at Longhorn Steakhouse (where I could look up nutritionals and make it fit my plan) & then to the game!! It was a fun night & a great way to end my winter break.
For dinner I got a cup of shrimp and lobster chowder, 7 oz salmon filet, & a sweet potato. It was good but i felt really nauseous later- not sure if it was from something I ate?
So here I am, going to sleep before going back to school tomorrow for my second semester. I am so incredibly lucky to have gotten through my low point and be able to go back. I am determined to stay on the right track so that I can stay in school and live my life the way I want to. Life will never be perfect. There will always be struggles, victories, failures, successes, disappointments, surprises, and troubles but getting through those times (good or bad) and being stronger because of them is what life is all about.
“See” you all in Madison!!
In my next post I will update you all about meal plan/ed stuff/etc. but I need to get some zzzzzzzzzzzs.
Have a great Sunday!!!
