Ready for some Randomnessss?! 🙂
So breakfast was a delicious bowl of oatmeal- 2 packets of instant oats, 1 banana, 4 strawberries, 2 tbsp of peanut butter, and 1 cup of skim milk.
Random Fact: Oats probably grew first in the colder regions of Europe, and were widely raised as animal food by the time of the ancient Greeks. Oats were brought to America during the 17th century, and today the United States is the greatest oat producer in the world.
this fueled me for my walk up Bascom hill. Bascom hill is a hill in Madison that leads to a majority of the buildings my classes are in. On the one hand, i like having to walk up it every day because it makes me feel like i’m getting some form of exercise haha but on the other hand, i’m tired!!
Random Fact: if a student climbed Bascom Hill once a day, five times a week, 30 weeks a year, for four years, he or she would make the trip 600 times. Multiplied by 850 feet, the total hike equals 510,000 feet, or the equivalent of 17.59 times the height of Mount Everest, almost 97 miles.
Lunch was none other than… a turkey wrap… sorry guys, I bore. 1 whole wheat wrap with turkey & swiss, some kettle chips, veggies & an apple.
I snuggled with the boy for a while Monday afternoon and then I had chapter for my sorority. We eat dinner at 5:30 and I was kinda freakin out because that meant that I would have to eat dinner way earlier than i’m used to- no fret- I figured out how much I had to eat to make it fit my plan and then I ate two snacks later.
The food was actually pretty good– naan bread, curry chicken, sweet potato, and veggies/salad!
Random Fact: There is a 33% chance that a peanut grown in the U.S. will end up as peanut butter
sick of the random facts yet? toooo bad! i am not stoppin here 🙂
I woke up this morning and made another delicious bowl of oats for breakfast… I tried to go with a cinnamon raisin apple theme… hence: 2 instant oat packets, apples, bananas, cinnamon raisin swirl, raisins (& cinnamon after being photographed). Also had some skim milk on the side
I then walked up Bascom Hill (lovely) to go to my horrific econ 101 class. Sorry to be a negative nancy, but I cannot stand this class! The teacher is so disorganized and I can’t understand a word he says. Not to mention a girl two seats away from me would not be quiet… I kind of wanted to say something but hesitated.
Then I had my relaxation class. I wasn’t relaxed today haha but we spent like 2/3 of the class stretching and then did our standard relaxation at the end..lovely 🙂 I then went to the university health services for my weekly weigh in- gradual gain (don’t know the weight) so yayy i’m on the right track.
Met my looovee for lunch in the cafeteria 🙂
I was then off to my therapist for my sesh- luckily Gar let me use his car to get there (he had class). The appointment went really well and I made some great realizations (will talk about them later). (note: whole foods being next to my therapist’s office=bad for my money haha. don’t worry parentals, i’m using my debit)
Random Fact: If you are right handed, you will tend to chew your food on the right side. If you are left handed, you will tend to chew your food on the left side. (omg this is true! I am chewing my gum on the right side as we speak!!)
Snacktime was here before I knew it! I tried pomegranate chobani
review: get this flavor. now. it has the most delicious pomegranate taste to it and was very satisfying. Thank you again Chobani!
I added in a cup of honey sunhine, some almonds, & dark chocolate dreams.
I came back and socialized with the roomie and a friend for a bit as they chowed down on pizza.
Random Fact: 3 billion pizzas are sold annually, that’s 46 slices each for every man, woman and child in the country.
& then ate dinner with Gar! I was in the mood for a salad, I truly was. So i went with it. Still had to get my 5 carbs in! The salad had feta, eggs, ham & dressing and I had baked lays, apple, & izze clementine flavor (SO SO good)!
So that’s that- now i am procrastinating instead of doing reading.
What has gotten into me? I need to get more organized asap. I am all over the place right now.
I want to talk about the realization I discussed previously. While talking with my therapist, I talked about how I feel like I get treated poorly at times even though most of the time, I am nice to everyone.
I realized a few things:
a) I am not the only one these people are rude to, I just take it more personally. So i’m sensitive? I need to either learn to brush it off and accept those negative comments as faults in that person’s personality or just avoid people who treat me badly if i can’t brush it off.
b) I need to stop people-pleasing so much. By being so nice to everyone, I end up getting walked on at times (sidenote- this is not usually me… it is just me when trying to make lots of friends in college). So i’m going to do more things for myself and be more myself.
c) I need to do what I want to do more often and not worry so much about what others are doing. I am a nice person, people want to be my friend, so if i’m me and do what makes me happy, others will want to be around me!
Now it’s your turn
1: Give me a random fact!!
2: What is a realization you have made lately?
