7am- wake up 7:30-catch bus 8:00-chem 9:00-math 10:00-therapy 12:00-lunch with Holly 1:00-Human Development 2:00-The dreaded doctor appointment
Needless to say, I was NOT looking forward to today. It's a monday, I need to wake up early, and I had 3 classes and two appointments all before 2:30. But you know what? I think today has been one of the best day's I have had here so far. Why you ask? Well, aside from it being the first day of FALL (yes, I count the 21 as the first official day), I had my SECOND good doctor's appointment in a row...which has NEVER happened to me before. Ever. I normally gain a little, drop more than I gained, gain a little more, drop a little more, etc etc. HOWEVER not today!!! This girl fought through all the negative thoughts last week and came out a champ! In addition to the good news at the Doc, I also got the BEST iced coffee ever, and found out I got a 100 on my term paper for HDFS. HOLLAA!!!
I have been up to a LOT this past week...and it feels absolutely amazing! My mind has been drifting away from things ED related, and it's scaring me but exciting me at the same time. I sit down at my computer now, and instead of reading food blogs religiously, and poking around nutrition and fitness websites, I watch TV shows, listen to music, talk to friends, do my homework, and just have fun! Here are a few pictures from the past week:
Bought curtains for my room/worked on my collage...
Got a drug/alcohol suggestive sign from my girl Carly!!!
Stumbled upon an old picture of my sister and I holding a baby white tiger. This is me in my element!!!
And we visited the cows....a LOT!!!
Yes....her name is Precious Phatty...
ANNNDDDD Look at the show lineup this week: Monday- 2 hour House season premiere AND Gossip Girl!!! Tuesday- 2 hours of CSI! Wednesday- ANTM....don't judge. Thursday- GREY'S ANATOMY!!!
Add in 2 exams, 2 quizzes, and a paper...and you've got yourself a very busy Laura!!!
Hello Hello! I'm quite the phantom-blogger aren't I? The occasional comment here and there, but otherwise I'm nowhere to be found! College this year is simply amazing...SO much better than last year when I was skipping class to live at the gym, and isolating myself in my dorm room. This semester I'm pushing myself to be social, eating regularly, only going to the gym every other day to do weights (no cardio for this girl!), and just loving the change. Having my car on campus is such a relief to me- just knowing that I can go home at any time if I need to is extremely comforting.
I wish I had more to say and update you girls on, but the truth is- there's just too much! I've been challenging myself (remember my weekend at my roommates house? Well they didn't have ANY wheat bread at all...so I had to eat white bread....and I survived =P). Oh...and don't forget:
PRINNY!!! (AKA Princess)She slept with me both nights I stayed there. Love. _______ I've also been walking a lot around campus, and trying to balance my meals accordingly. And judging by my last doctors appointment...I'm doing a pretty damn good job at it!
Other things I've been doing/working on:
I got together with my girl Libby from CEDC
Got a CHANEL makeover!
I've been drinking coffee....a LOT of coffee...
I've been decorating...
(curtains are coming soon to a window near ME )
And just a few random comments/questions: -Thanks to everyone who came out of the blogging shadows and introduced themselves to me!!!! I love hearing from you girls <3 -The cold turkey diet cola thing wasn't working for me, but I guarantee that I have at MAX just a cup or two a day. No more....and not EVERY day. I already feel better! -I've been working on eating less volume and more density. Not in the restricting sort of way, just in the "instead of a plate full of salad, I'm going to have a pb sandwich" sort of way. My body loves me.
One last question (actually...the ONLY question): For those of your who converted from blogger to wordpress...is it easier to use? Part of the reason I don't update so much is because it takes a while to "pull" all of the pictures down, and get everything laid out right.
I'm off to do a little thing called homework. Catch you on the flip side!!
I was having blog-posting withdrawels, so I decided to satisfy it with a pseudo post.
Recap of some major/minor (you decide) points of my life:
(I gave up diet-cola....this is my LAST one (minus a fresca last night....don't judge)
I worked on my wall collage, and wrote the September due-dates on my calendar...
I bit the bullet and added a bit of CREAM to my coffee....along with soy milk of course.
As for this weekend...
I'm seeing this beautiful lady, whom I haven't seen since my CEDC days:
THEN I'm going home to my roomy's house for the weekend. She has a dachshund. Have I mentioned that I'm obsessed with dachshunds?
But I have goals, my friends....BIG goals.
+No more diet cola (I decided I'm going to say "Unless at a party", because cold Turkey isn't my style!) +Less veggies, more substantial food! +Laugh more! +Loosen up +Continue no gym (I can't believe I'm doing so well with this!)
Hey everyone, my name's Laura. I'm a Sophomore at the University of Connecticut and am currently trying to learn how to balance school, friends, food, and everything else that life has to offer! I'm extremely friendly, so don't be afraid to say hello!
