I had a lot of time to think today, especially about my last post and everyone's responses towards it, and I have come up with a plan of some sort. For one, I feel as if my 'addiction' to the blogging community also has a lot to do with the fact that I have a lot of free time given that I'm still on my Christmas break. On the days that I am very busy, I don't get really stressed out about not being able to read everyone's blogs. So, since I am starting school again next week, I am going to keep up with this until then, and see what happens once I have a pretty busy schedule. If I am still finding myself spending too much time reading, comparing, and pretty much spending WAY too much time on here...then I will take a break. But I want to be okay with this, because I just ADORE the people here, and typing about my days really helps me mentally. I just need to cut back on the blogs that I DO read, and focus more on the person, not the food they are consuming.
OKAY. Now on to more interesting things.
I had a doctors appointment today, and it was a good one! They don't tell me if I maintained or gained, but either way I did not lose! This means that I am 100% going to school next Monday! My next appointment at this place is in March, and I LOVED being able to make that appointment and waltz on out of there! (don't worry...I have plenty of doctors at school to keep tabs on me and my health! =] )
While I was in the waiting room, I was reading my book when I came across this sentence. It says "Size in a matter of perspective." I thought this was an extremely interesting statement. I haven't had much time to really think about it, but I'm just letting you know to expect some sort of post in regards to this statement too. I just think it holds true in so many aspects of our lives. I see women who are absolutely beautiful, and in my opinion such a healthy "size", yet if I were to find out their weight, it would most likely be a lot more than I, myself, weigh. However, I look in the mirror and see a different size than I truly am. Perspective I tell you. Perspective.
Well, I also got a text from my friend while I was in the waiting room. She said there was a 10 for 10$ sale on ALL nutrition bars at CVS. So, of course....I hit that on the way home!
There's a few Newbies in there. INCLUDING Jaime's beloved Turtle Kashi Roll Bar! Can't wait to give that a whirl! Also, despite never seeing them in the blog world, I picked up a Pure Protein bar! Baby steps my friends, baby steps. =]
OH, and this is something I've been waiting to see pop up:
I can't wait!!!
BUT DO YOU KNOW WHAT I FORGOT ABOUT?!
The fact that I was expecting a package of bars from our dear Lauren! And of course, since I just purchased NUMEROUS amounts of bars, I would get another huge (and SO much appreciated!) shipment of bars in the mail!!
LAUREN- I WAS SO EXCITED TO OPEN THIS PACKAGE!! I think, I was more excited than Christmas morning. Oh gosh...I think I need to attend a Nutrition Bar Anonymous meeting.
She remembered to include a note (sorry I forgot Lauren, I still feel bad!!) But I plan on taking this to school with me. It's impossible to look at this and not smile =]
Now, I know I said I was going to save these for school. But I'm thinking that Banana Bread Nakd bar isn't going to last a whole week untouched!!
That Yogurt Wallaby bar is kind of calling my name too ;-P
Lauren- Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!!
I'm just in such a good mood right now. I had a FANTASTIC workout, I'm completely relaxed because my appointment is over and I am positive I will be able to go back to school, I have an OVER abundance of bars, a possible job at school, and I have a plan for the blogging problem. Oh, and there MIGHHHTTT be a boy named Tom appearing in these posts. But, that's a might =]
