& I’m in Madison!
It seemed like I was never going to be actually living in the sorority house & back at school. I talked about moving in all summer but it seemed so far away. Move in day went pretty well though; I got an early start & even though it was hot as hellll (I was sweating up a STORM), it was fine. I am really happy to be here & hope that this year is an amazzzzing one. Here are a few pics I’ve managed to snap over the past week
My FAVORITE breakfast – I’m going to have to make it work here in the house somehow!
grilled wraps with cheese & guac & turkey- perfection. (this is not the whole meal)
We went to Cheesecake Factory the night before I left for school and I got the Asian Crunch Salad- it was SOOOO lame. It was a healthier option on the menu but honestly, I was really disappointed in it.
This is my side of my room!! We have horrendous wall paper so I covered my walls with used book pages- my roommate & I bought some fashion magazines. I really like how it looks.
Last night I started out the year right by going out with the girls. It was a lot of fun & I know this year is going to be so crazy fun! I think it is so important to live up your 4 years of undergrad because it is such a unique experience & it only happens once!
To be honest, I’m feeling pretty low with body image stuff the past couple days. Being at school reminds me how easy it is to compare to other girls and feel insecure but I do not want that to affect me- i’ve been there, done that. A lot of bloggers have been posting about confidence and I can’t help but agree with what some of them have been saying- confidence is everything. A confident person is an attractive person (not always but a lot of the time). If you walk into a room thinking you are the shitttt (pardon my french), other people probably will too. That’s how I want to carry myself, not in the sense of being ‘cocky’ but just in the sense of being confident enough to know that I am not “fat” and know that I may not be perfect, but i’m perfectly imperfect and it works.
I just try to remember that every day is a new day- “live each day and be done with it”. So I haven’t made the healthiest choices the past few days, so WHAT? Today is a new day and I can be as healthy/active as I want. I’m sick of feeling guilty for indulging and then trying to restrict the next day. I’m sick of letting things i’ve done in the past impact my attitude in the future. The best thing to do for your body after you’ve been out of routine is to go back to eating in a healthy, balanced way and to exercise the correct amount. I really want to follow what I say and I know that I have all the tools to do so.
Be back soon- I’m determined to update this baby 🙂
Questions- 1) Do you feel confident? How do you deal with comparing?
