November 5th

So, it's been forever and a day since I posted!  Well, really a month and a couple days, but that's still a LONG time!  This past month has been quite the long one-I'll admit I didn't stay fully on track food wise, but according to the scale at the gym today, I lost a little bit of weight. I'm not going to count it until Monday, but so far so good?  But anyways, this month was all about change.  I started a new job (read: paid internship) and it's taken a bit of adjusting (and I lost LOTS of extra time!).  I've also encountered midterm season (which didn't seem like it would ever end).  I've been swamped with LOADS of sorority stuff!  And just in this past week, I broke off my friendship with Blake.  Yes, you read that right. BROKE IT OFF.  I couldn't do it anymore-that entire friendship wasn't worth the effort I put into it.  So, here we are.  We're now no longer the four of us-it's me, and the three of them (Lucy, Chase, and Blake).  Though, there is a new guy friend in my life: Alex.  I won't tell you his actual name, but he's quickly becoming a good friend of mine.  After this last month, I'm stoked about that :)

Onto the food for today, since that's what everyone's expecting, yes? :)


A cup of coffee with 2 splendas and 2 tbsp. skim milk and a cherry nutri-grain bar (not pictured).  I had service this morning SUPER early, so I didn't have time to eat :(


One of my sorority sisters wanted to get lunch after service, and how could I resist?  She's one of my favorite sorority sisters (I may have talked about her before, but I'm not sure, so I'll just give her a new name-Kailey), and it was nice to be able to talk to her one-on-one :)  But, we went to this food court-esque place on campus, and I headed to the salad bar and got a salad with tomatoes, cauliflower, garbanzo beans, and two slices of chicken with a tad of balsamic vinegar, some pesto pasta, and sauteed mushrooms-YUM :)


I had this before going to the gym-sliced apple. YAY :)

and this was before dinner-I was hungry but I tried to wait for my roommate (1 tbsp. Whole Foods Black Bean Hummus and 5 Falafel Chips-YUM!)


CHILI!  We usually have Turkey Chili, but the Turkey I picked up was very questionable smelling, so we got some of the beef out of the freezer and used that-still tasted pretty good! :)

Exercise:  I went to the gym and went on their track and alternated running a couple laps with stretching.  My body is not used to working out I guess-a little bit of a problem I must say...  I figured I'd start off with baby steps and work myself up to running a mile.  But I felt great going, so I'll be going back lots now :)

Pros:  Yay for eating well and getting back to my blog!  Also yay for exercising and drinking lots of water! :)

Cons: I need to work on my emotions-they're out of wack :(

Hoping for a better tomorrow! :)
