Happy Valentine’s Day!!
I know people have many different opinions on this holiday- but personally, I LOVE it! I always have.
I remember being so excited in my younger years to get all the Valentines from the other kids. My favorites were obviously the ones with candy attached!
I remember picking out which valentine to give out- Rugrats?! Disney Princesses? Spongebob?! How will I ever choose 😛
Since I was a little kid, every year my Mom buys my sister & I crystals to collect. This is the one she got me this year – it is from Swarovski 🙂
Obviously now Valentines day has changed a bit for me as I attribute it more to spending it with my #1.. Gar of course 🙂 I am so lucky to have him and honestly feel like every day is Valentines Day but it is also nice for us to be able to celebrate a bit! We are going out to a nice dinner tonight at a restaurant called Blue Marlin. Should be fun!
I totally embrace the hallmark holiday! love it.
A few lovely ladies talked about how they are their own valentines this year and want to work on loving themselves. I think this is a fantastic point and you should definitely check out these posts– totally 100% worth reading!
We decided to do little gifts for Valentines day since our two-year is coming up. We obviously think alike- seeing as both of our cards featured dogs
So anyways, onto the core subject of this blog- uhh my life! haha. Sometimes I feel so narcissistic with this blog, but whatevs. As you all have probably noticed, blogging has kinda taken the back seat this past week. I have a zoology exam next week and have been living my life which doesn’t leave much down time. In a way, i think it is a good thing. I loveee blogging so much but there is a whole big world out there and I don’t want to miss out on it due to technology 🙂 you know?
And of course, thank you so much for all of your feedback on switching up my lunches! You really all gave me some winning ideas but it is so hard because i don’t have a kitchen. We’ll see how my lunch challenge goes 😛
As for the eats, i’m not going to lie i’ve totally jumped on the yoat-gurt bandwagon and i’m never getting off of it haha! These are the bomb. Here are some of my yoatgurt?yoats?oatgurt? whatev creations from the past few days. They look soo appetizing to me but I bet to a great portion of the world they look sick nasty. Gotta love the blog-o-sphere.
I did change-up my lunch a bit one day and had a veggie burger sandwich on Thursday for lunch.
I honestly don’t even really remember when some of my eats that are pictured were taken but i did enjoy a delicious snack of kefir with truvia & almonds and a bar
Last night Gar ate dinner with me but he had already eaten so he got this deliciousness:
While I got a whole wheat wrap with chicken & soy american cheese all grilled up 🙂
This weekend was a huge success! Friday night I went out with Gardner and his friends and we went to a new bar that was a lot of fun. Last night I hung out with my best friend for a while and then ended up meeting up with Gar & his friends around 12. It was also a really fun night 🙂 I’ve been able to be so much more spontaneous lately, I love it!
I woke up this morning, ran my mile, showered, got some stuff for Gar, and now i’m about to do some important stuff- aka studying. Guys, i’m struggling to study for zoology! LOL. i’m worried!
Recovery wise– things are going better than I could have ever imagined. To those of you who are stuck where I was, push through because I promise you that once you get past the really tough part, it feels great! I honestly have not been this happy in a while and I can notice that “normal” hunger cues are slowly starting to come back. I am not hungry as often and at the same time, I am hungry when I should be.
I’m not saying that i’m perfect or that i’m recovered because i’m not done yet. But i’m just saying that I know that this battle is so close to being over. I just have to push through. I’m really starting to believe that I am going to beat this for real- it feels great.
It is weird not always being the smallest girl in the room anymore. But weird in a good way. I remember I would constantly feel like I was being judged for how thin I was and sneaky Gertrude convinced me that they were wrong and that there was nothing wrong with me. I now feel confident because I know I am healthier and that allows me to be more energetic, more exciting, and more fun!
I can’t wait to dig in to those pretzels and I’ve never used agave nectar!
Thank you so much Molly!!
Have a Great Valentine’s Day!!!
questions– How should I use agave nectar?! I need ideas!! What are your v-day plans? 🙂
ps- i just wanted to thank you all so much for your support. Honestly, every comment brightens my day. You are all fab!!
