Playing With The Big Kids Now

I had my grad school orientation today! Not to sound completely nerdy, but I’m actually really excited. I know it’s going to be hard work and I’m definitely going to need to improve my time management, but I can already tell it’s going to be an amazing two years in this program.  Everybody was so welcoming and friendly, I can tell it’s a tight-knit group that I’ll get to know well. Oh, and I already […]

Back On Track

After a food-filled weekend, it was time to get my habits in order. I think because I had not had decadent sweets like that in a while, my taste buds went into over drive and I devoured everything in sight! Ok, not everything. But my cravings were not under control. My will-power was nowhere in sight. I think I had it under control by sunday though. Meal Food Calories Breakfast Left over Jimmy John’s sandwich […]

The lake was so much fun yesterday! As you know, we were at Daniel’s uncle’s lake house. His aunt and uncle weren’t there but two of his sisters and several of his cousins made it. It was fun to meet more of his family. The house is on a private lake with plenty of room for fun activities like tubing! Sadly, on the second run the tube broke (I guess it was pretty old), but […]

Bougie Things

Today we’re headed to Daniel’s uncle’s lake house so this is going to be a quick update. Yesterday, I didn’t workout. My left knee has a dull pain so I decided to give it a rest. Also, we were just plain being lazy. But thankfully I didn’t go over calories on my rest day.

Green Tea Smoothie

Yesterday I went on another 4.5 mile run. And I didn’t even walk the whole time! I realize that a month ago I could barely run two laps around a quarter mile track and now I can go over 4 miles while carrying a decent amount of conversation. I admit during the last mile I wasn’t able to talk as well but I could spew out a few words every now and again. Improvement! So […]

Wahooooooo!

I’ve decided to take up drinking green tea. Maybe not everyday, but fairly often. I’ve heard it has good health benefits such as antioxidants and reducing the risk of cancers and other chronic diseases. I’ve also heard it helps with weight loss but I’m not for sure if that has really been confirmed. It can’t hurt either way. They say to drink it as fresh as possible. I hope adding ice doesn’t affect the uptake […]

I made a bad decision last night. Daniel and I went to the store hungry. And you know what happens when people go to the store hungry? They buy things they shouldn’t. Like a bag of chips. And then they proceed to eat almost the entire bag of chips. Whoopsies.
