Don't judge a day by it's agenda.

Monday, September 21

7am- wake up
7:30-catch bus
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...

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!!!
