I’ve been so bad about posting lately! I need to get better!!
So thanksgiving break happened between my last post and now. It was a much needed break because now everything is starting to get crazy with studying for finals! Less than 3 weeks to go and I’ll be halfway through my freshman year! I can’t believe that, the time has gone by so fast.
Back to thanksgiving though.
So I think I mentioned in my first post (maybe not) that I love food. Who doesn’t love food? So Thanksgiving is naturally one of the best holidays. Plus I loved getting to be at home for awhile even though I was actually pretty busy the entire break! I tried my hand at making a homemade apple crumble pie and also homemade crescent rolls and for my thanksgiving they both turned out really well!
As for my boyfriend’s thanksgiving on Sunday…
I may have tipped the pie while carrying it and caused the topping and some of the filling to flow over the side leaving a gooey mess. And I also might’ve burnt one pan of the crescent rolls. But not to worry, I made a new pie Sunday morning (right after I discovered that I ruined it) and we cut the bottoms off of the crescent rolls and they turned out just fine.
My diet sorta kinda maybe went out the window a little bit over the break. I sat in the cold at the Husker game on Friday and watched them (sadly) lose and obviously concession foods aren’t the best, but sometimes I feel like you shouldn’t have to always sacrifice bad foods. You don’t want to look back on something and be like “omg that day sucked I was so hungry the whole time because I was on a diet and couldn’t eat anything from the stadium!” I wanna look back and be like “I hung on to that Runza for dear life while walking over the super slick bleachers because my stomach needed to be warmed by that Runza!”
Best philosophy? Probably not. But I think sometimes it’s okay to just go with the flow and try not to get too down on yourself.
I type this while remembering the fact that I haven’t weighed myself this week. Probably best that I haven’t.
Tomorrow marks a sad day because it’s my last session with my trainer 😦 she’s really a wonderful lady and none of this would be possible without her and her push-ups and burpees and pull-ups and other hard things that I always groan about when I have to do them but am actually really thankful for in the long run. She’s taught me to be so much more mentally tough and that’s the kind of push we all need in our lives.
In other news, I’ve decided I want to transfer from my current college, and I really would like to go out of state. That’s scary for me but I really feel that I’m just one of those people that needs to explore other opportunities and get out there a little bit. It’s not a final decision yet (gotta talk to mom about it) but it’s a decision I really want to go through with. If I could start a GoFundMe for my out of state tuition I would! Lol, that’s not selfish is it? I think what’s the scariest is that my friends and family are here and it’d be hard not knowing anyone if I left, but sometimes those are sacrifices we have to make. I’ll keep everyone updated on that.
Also a girl in my speech class gave a speech over the paleo diet and while itd be hard for me to do with an on campus meal plan, I’d like to do it in the future. Does anyone have good/bad things to say about it? Giving up dairy and grains would be hard for me because I love milk and bread! Lol. But like I said before, sacrifices.
I think that’s all I have to catch up on. I need to post more!
