I’m alive 🙂
School has been crazy- i am not used to school work, and I am already a little bit behind. Zoology 101 is going to be so tough for me- i am not a science person at all 😦
I feel like it’s been so long since i’ve posted and so i’ll try to recap what has been going on as best as I can 🙂
Wednesday I woke up and ate this breakfast which was 2 packets of instant oats, raisins, banana, cinnamon, peanut butter, slivered almonds & chocolate milk- what a messsss.
I didn’t take food pictures for the rest of the day because I ate with friends and stuff- nothing wrong with that :). I was actually really proud of myself. My friend invited me over for dinner. I had eaten my snack an hour before so I kind of started freaking out because I didn’t want to eat so close together and I didn’t know what she was making (note: this girl is known for trix yogurt, fried chicken, and pizza hahah). I decided, though, that I would go, eat a little and get a real meal in later!
I went and she made a chicken, veggie & rice stir fry. I had a little bit, was there for a couple hours, and then got a real dinner! yay 🙂 I was so happy I chose not to isolate myself and instead enjoy a meal with my friends.
Thursday I started the day with a yogurt mess featuring vanilla oikos. It also had a cup of cascadian cinnamon crunch cereal, peanut butter, raisins, & walnuts..yummm.
I was so excited to find that I had a package waiting for me in the mail- CHOBANI SAMPLES!!! Thank you so much Chobani!
Then I came home and relaxed & did some work. I ended up eating dinner with the boy in the cafeteria! I brought my own sunshine veggie burger and had some cheese with it on pumpernickle rye bread, an apple, soy vanilla milk (YUM), and a salad!
Then I went to a party that was a lot of fun..it was great to catch up with friends…. view my transportation of choice 😉
I have Friday classes this semester- booo- so I woke up at 8:30 for my 9:55 class and ate breakfast. I tried Chobani Plain 2% in my yogurt mess. It froze because I put it in the wrong fridge (oops) but i actually lOVED it frozen!!! it tasted so good. Thanks again Chobani 🙂 I added peanut butter bumpers, dark chocolate dreams, raisins, craisins, and a banana.
class was ok but ahhh I was so lost in zoology— someone helllpp!! haha. Lunch was rushed. I went to Gardner’s and made a quick wrap, grabbed some cheddar bunnies & pretzels (unpictured) & then took an apple and some veggies to go. I had to go to my 1:20 discussion and it is in the most confusing building ever. I literally ran around the whole building before I found the room. This is all I pictured of lunch by the wayy.
Even though I had greek yogurt for breakfast, I really wanted to try the strawberry banana flavor! I loved it. Usually i’m not crazy about flavored greek yogurt, but this one was amazing. Strawberry banana flavored things are my favorite! I added some granola, cereal, & peanut butter and put it in my fav bowl. love it.
Then I got ready, socialized, all that stuff & ate dinner before going out for the night! I had a baked potato with butter & ketchup, an apple & a kashi red curry chicken frozen meal… the frozen meal was amazing! Kashi never disappoints 🙂
This morning I ate yet another yogurt mess. My meals might be a little repetitive but honestly it is only because I am too busy to take a lot of time planning new, exciting meals. I think this is probably a good thing though because as long as i’m following my meal plan I don’t necessarily need or want to spend so much time thinking about food! I’m just livin my lifee 😎
This featured vanilla chobani. I loved it. It was thick and had a really good taste- I could definitely eat it plain. I’d recommend it 🙂 I added cinnamon cascadian crunch, bananas, dark chocolate bunnies (yumm) & almond butter I bought at Whole Foods!
so that’s that. I’ve been following my meal plan to a T and it feels really good. I actually am starting to truly just feel ambivalent about the whole thing. I mean, to be honest, I usually am hungry enough to eat the food on my meal plan- so why not enjoy it, you know?
There is another thing I wanted to bring up. Lately i’ve been struggling with feeling like I always have to be the one to initiate plans when I want to hang out with people. I got kind of down about it yesterday but then after I complained and whined, at 6:30 three different people called me. Of course people like me and want to hang out with me, I just am way too stressed about being on a schedule and was being way too insecure.
This made me realize that as important as a schedule is for things like eating and following my meal plan right now, I don’t always need to know what i’m doing for the night hours in advance. It isn’t how the world operates and it isn’t how other people operate. Spontaneity is such a fun part of life and I need to just slow down.
Do any of you struggle with letting your need to be on a schedule stress you out when others don’t?
What foods can you not get enough of? For me it is yogurt messes & turkey wraps 🙂 I think you all know that haha.
