Hope everyone is having a great week!! I should win the least consistent blogger award– but that is ok! I love you all a lot & know you all understand that life is busyyy.
I have been fine. I had an econ exam which was alright but other than that life is just going by. My life has basically consisted of NO down time at all. It is ridiculous- between classes, humos, doctor appointments, sorority stuff, etc. I feel like I have no time to breathe in a day. Despite my complaining, I have to say that being busy is what I do best 🙂 I don’t think I could deal with having little-to-nothing to do.
Speaking of which, I want to talk about balance in this post. First though, i’ll show you some eats i’ve been enjoying. I haven’t taken a lot of food pictures, but here are a few:
Breakfasts have been yogurt messes almost every day. Hey, it’s early, I don’t want to think about what to eat in the morning! haha. I’m lOVING that siggis plain yogurt has been on sale at Whole Foods- it is so thick & delicious.
PUMPKIN PIE HUMMUS– omg this legit tasted identical to pumpkin pie filling! They had this in the fresh market along with peanut butter hummus, chocolate hummus, maple hummus & more- if this wasn’t 5 dollars I would have bought them all!!
Dinner one night was at Quizno’s- pick two: cobb salad & turkey flatbread thing
Balance is such an important part of life and it is something we all consider each day.
We have to balance school work with fun. We balance how much exercise we do. We balance how much we eat & ideally, what we eat. We balance the time we spend with friends. We balance time spent with our boyfriends/girlfriends (if we have them). We balance studying. We balance how much make up we wear.
I could go on forever with this list. To be honest, balance is something I mentally struggle with. I often stress about things like how much time I should spend with my friends vs. Gardner, or how often I should go out on the weekend and how much I should study, or how long I should sleep for each night (what’s too much or too little?), or how often I should work out, or how much should I blog, or how much I should eat (am I overeating or under-eating?). You get the picture. Obviously, when you have an eating disorder, balance is thrown out the window, but as I have been recovering, I have noticed some of that balance is coming back.
Interestingly, I’ve found that when I worry the least, I tend to achieve the most balance. & Despite my worries about balancing all of the different aspects of my life, I like to think my life is pretty balanced nowadays. I eat a mostly healthy diet, I spend a good amount of time with my friends & boyfriend, I study and I go out, etc. I’m proud of this, but there is one thing i’m not so proud of.
I am absolutely, 100% horrible at keeping in touch. I haven’t kept in that great of touch with most any of my friends from home so I am slightly terrified for this summer. Rationally, I know that things will be fine and I will be welcomed by my friends, but I am worried that things will be awkward. I am so lucky because I genuinely am in lOVE with college & the friends i’ve made, but I also know that keeping in touch with old friends is important too and I will regret it if I don’t make more of an effort.
I guess i’m saying all of this because school is a month away from being over (oh my god, i teared up writing that) & i will be heading home for the summer. I am NOT ready for that, but things will be fine…. they always are.
Hope you have great ends to your weeks!!! My mom is coming this weekend for my sorority’s Mom’s Weekend & I am so pumped!
Sorry for my sporadicism (both with blogging & in this post)! ps, is sporadicism a word? haha!
oh, & let me humor you with some pictures when i was REAAAAAAALLLY sober (It’s opposite day…). this sums up last weekend.
I ADORE my friends
See why I don’t want to leave school?!?!?!
1) How do you deal with balance? Do you consider yourself balanced or do you tend to struggle with balance?
2) If you’re in college, do you keep in touch with your friends from home?
