October 2nd

So sorry for not posting yesterday-it was pretty crazy!  But I'm following my schedules, and we'll see how it looks :)

I went to Founding Farmers (this AMAZING restaurant that uses only down to earth ingredients and local produce) with Lucy, Mary, and Sally.  I looked online before and found this and it sounded AMAZING! :)  It's their "Drag through the Garden" Egg White Scramble with some grits and a piece of Toasted Ciabatta-DELISH!
I also had to have a cup of coffee (in my room) with 2 tbsp. skim milk and 2 splendas :)

Snack 1:
I had to eat something before I went to the gym, so I decided to try my Late July Cheese Sandwich Crackers-AMAZING!

Snack 2:
After the gym, I had this wonderful Luna Bar-Chocolate Dipped Coconut (which they now sell at Whole Foods for 99 cents, instead of $1.99 they charge for it everywhere else on campus), and a Medium Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Coffee with 2 tbsp. skim milk and 2 splendas (not pictured)

My sorority family and I went to Bertucci's for dinner-I had two rolls (not pictured) and this awesome salad!
Then Blake texted me after I came back and said his roast was ready, and I HAD to try it-YUMMY!

Snack 3:
I was really hungry still (for some bizarre reason), so I sliced an apple-YUMMY :)

Exercise:  I did 30 minutes of strength training at the gym today-SUPER exhausting!

Pros:  Yay for eating my fruits and veggies, drinking 12 cups of water, and going to the gym!

Cons:  I need to cut down the carbs and snacks.

Hoping for a fabulous tomorrow (and WI day!)

October 1st

ALL CAUGHT UP! YAY :) and it's the First Day of October-HECK YES :)  I got so much done today-I'm so pleased :)

Updates:  I made a new food/workout plan for the week, and I'm going to try SUPER hard to stick with it.  It shouldn't be too bad-I LOVE sticking to these, and I added in my meals out, and put one copy on the refrigerator, so that's good :)  Also, I'm not going to use MyFitnessPal for the time being.  I think I've become overly concerned about caloric intake and how many calories I burn while exercising, and not enough concern is about how my clothes fit, how I feel, and the freshness of the food I'm eating.  So, I'm going to stick with my plan, and eat as much good food as I can, and we'll see what happens.

Breakfast:  We ate with the boys!  I had 2 365 Organic Pancakes, 2 Egg Whites, 1 Chicken Breakfast Sausage, and 1 Slice of Turkey Bacon-SO SO SO GOOD! :)  My roommate also got me a Venti Triple Shot Skinny Hazelnut Latte from Starbucks-YUM :)

Snacks:  I had 1 small brownie, 1 pumpkin chocolate chip cookie, and 1 cup of coffee with 2 splendas and a creamer.  We had a sorority event that went from a cookout to an indoor potluck.

Lunch:  I had the last piece of Pepperoni Pizza and a Fat Free Raspberry Yogurt that's been in the fridge for quite some time.

Snacks:  I had 1 tbsp. Chocolate Hazelnut Butter, 3 Late July Organic Cheese Sandwich Crackers (YUM!) and another Venti Triple Shot Skinny Hazelnut Latte during an interview with a soon-to-be pledge!  I don't know this girl as well, even though she's friends with a former roommate of mine, so it was good to talk with her!

Dinner:  I got dinner at Whole Foods with a friend from freshman year-I'll call her Sarah.  But I got a tiny bit of Macaroni and Cheese (Blake loves it!), some Chicken Caesar Pasta, and some grilled Chicken-DELISH!  I also had a Pistachio Cupcake for dessert-AMAZING!

Also, two NSVs that I haven't shared (one happened yesterday)!
-The night before I came back to school, I went shopping with my mom and got two black pencil skirts: one that was my size, and the other that was the size down (and too small).  Well, I wore the one that fit two weeks ago and it was fine.  But when I tried it on on Friday, it was a little big, and so I decided to try on the smaller one, and IT FIT! YES! I WAS SO SO SO EXCITED!  My roommate thought my waist looked TINY and I was so pleased :)
-This is two different scenarios but the same point.  So when I was at Starbucks tonight, I was talking with my old roommate's new roommate and she was telling me how my old roommate (who's a little big) talks about how she's fat all the time, and how she, my friend, was telling her how hot and fabulous she thought I looked, and I felt really good :)  Then, when I was telling my roommate this, she told me how she was talking to Chase about something, and he was like "you know, she (meaning me) looks really good" and she was like "yeah, she does" and he was like "no really, I mean, really good".  It makes me SO happy that other people are noticing-makes me want to keep going!

Exercise:  Not today, but I'm DEFINITELY going tomorrow!  It's on my calendar and everything :)

Pros:  Yay for not going crazy even though I'm not counting and drinking water! :)


Hoping for a FABULOUS tomorrow!

September 30th

So today was pretty great-I've had such fun! :)

Breakfast:  I had 1 cup of Cheerios with 1/2 cup skim milk, 2 diced strawberries, and 1 cup of coffee with 2 tbsp. skim milk and 2 splendas. SO GOOD :)

Lunch:  I had a phone interview, and didn't think I was going to make it to lunch with some friends, but it finished early, so I got to go to lunch! :)  I went with Blake, Chase, and another friend, Julie, and headed to Mehran's, where I had 1 Piece of Naan, 4 pieces of Tandoori Chicken, some Jasmine Rice, a small cucumber and carrot salad, and some lentils (at least...I think that's what it was).  But anyways, it was FREAKING DELICIOUS! So very worth it :)

Snacks:  I rewarded myself with a Strawberry Cupcake-it was DELICIOUS!

Dinner: Lucy, Chase, and I went to TGI Friday's, and I got the Spinach Florentine Flatbread, which was DELICIOUS!

Snacks:  I had a cupcake at a Sorority Event (Strawberry with Chocolate Frosting), and then later, the kid next door brought like 80 cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcakes back to his room and invited our floor over to eat them-YUMMY!

Exercise:  Not today! I NEED to get on that!

Pros:  Yay for trying to eat well!


September 29th

So today went a little better-SO SO SO glad it's the weekend!

Breakfast: 1 Cup of Cheerios with 1/2 cup skim milk and 2 diced strawberries and 1 cup of coffee with 2 tbsp. skim milk and 2 splendas, in the midst of my super busy studying!

Lunch:  I had 1 serving of Late July Peanut Butter sandwich crackers-SO GOOD, and a Luna Bar-Chocolate Dipped Coconut.  I hate not having time for lunch during the day on Tuesday/Thursday.

Dinner: My roommate and I decided to have dinner together since we haven't had dinner together all week! CRAZY!!  I had a piece of Pepperoni Pizza and 1/2 of my Chocolate Cupcake-YUMMY :)

Exercise:  No exercise AGAIN today :(

Pros: Yay for eating fairly well, and only limiting myself to one slice of pizza :)

Cons: Drink the water, eat the veggies, and go to the gym!

September 28th

So today was a little better, but not by much.  I'm still pretty eh about everything going on-sad :(

Breakfast:  I had my typical breakfast-1 cup of cheerios with 1/2 cup skim milk, 2 diced strawberries, and 2 cups of coffee, each with 2 tbsp. skim milk and 2 splendas. YUMMY :)

Lunch:  I finished the Turkey Chili today-1 cup of it-YUMMY :)

Snacks:  I had 2 tbsp. Chocolate Hazelnut Butter, 2 tbsp. Original Hummus, Stacy's Pita Chips-Sea Salt flavored :) 

Dinner:  I got dinner with one of my sorority sisters-Kayla, who I'm SO glad I got to get dinner with!  I had a Turkey Burger with Lettuce, Tomato, Sauteed Onions and Mushrooms, Ketchup, and Mustard. YUM!

Snacks: I had a Luna Bar-Cookie Dough flavored. SO SO SO GOOD :)  I also had a serving of Stacy's Pita Chips again :)  I was studying for an Anthropology Exam in Blake and Chase's room while watching Chase watch the Ducks play.  Blake and Chase's friend, Alex, came over and he's officially me and Lucy's BEST FRIEND. He was SO SO SO freaking funny, AND he's in my class too, so that made the night even better :)

Exercise: Not today :(

Pros:  Yay for eating well and drinking water, and being super productive under loads of stress!


September 27th

So today was pretty freaking sucky-mainly because of some stupid drama that was going on.  It seems that something started today and it's all going downhill from here-SUPER.

Breakfast: I had 1 cup of Cheerios with 1/2 cup skim milk, 2 diced strawberries, and 2 cups of coffee, each with 2 tbsp. skim milk and 2 splendas! YUMMY :)

Snacks: I had 1 bag of grapes, 1 Luna Bar-Chocolate Dipped Coconut, and 1 serving of Late July Peanut Butter Sandwich cookies instead of lunch-boo for five classes!

Dinner:  Hannah, Sally, and I went to Old Glory since Hannah had never been-SO GOOD!  I got the pulled pork sandwich with fried okra and a side salad with bbq-ranch, which was FREAKING AMAZING!!!!  Then we went to Sprinkles and got free cupcakes, but I didn't eat mine because I wasn't feeling well :(

Exercise:  Not today-stupid not feeling well!

Pros:  I drank lots of water and I didn't go overboard-yay :)

Cons: Blake and I are kinda in a fight right now and it's just pretty freaking awkward between the two of us-basically he became like best friends with his former best friend Tricia and I'm not sure what to make of it and now we're not talking...oh well :/

Hoping for a fabulous tomorrow!

September 26th

Sorry I haven't updated in FOREVER!  This past week has been the most stressful week EVER!  Next week will be a little better, so I'm excited for it! I have plans and EVERYTHING!

Breakfast:  I woke up feeling SUPER freaking nauseous, and knew that I could not make it to the gym and workout/weigh-in this week-oh well :(  I was kinda bummed, but it's okay I guess.  I have three months to lose 24 pounds, so I need to get moving!  That's 2 pounds a week! :)  So I had 1 cup of cheerios with 1/2 cup skim milk, 2 diced strawberries, and 2 cups of coffee, each with 2 tbsp. skim milk and 2 splendas. YUM!

Lunch: 6 slices of turkey and 8oz of Turkey Chili-YUM YUM YUM!

Dinner: I made a super yummy salad with romaine lettuce, a tomato, some mushrooms, 1/4 cucumber, and 2 tbsp. Organic Ginger Soy dressing from Whole Foods-SO GOOD!

Snacks:  So I ate throughout the day, and I can't remember when I ate what, so here it is: 1/2 cup grapes, 2 servings (26 crackers) of Late July Peanut Butter Bite Size Crackers, 2 tbsp. Cava Mezza Original Hummus, 2 Wheat Thins Flatbread Crackers, 2 tbsp. Chocolate Hazelnut Butter, 1 cup of coffee with 2 tbsp. skim milk and 2 splendas, 1 Luna Bar-Chocolate Dipped Coconut, and a Grande Skinny Hazelnut Latte.

Exercise:  Not today-starting PMS and it's not pretty :(

Pros:  Yay for drinking water and eating some veggies!
