Bundle of Crazy

Still working on the diet thing, while dealing with girlisms. UGH. For those who don’t know, today is yesterday was (I just missed posting this by a few minutes, drat!) October 3rd!  Mean Girls Day! :]  There was so much crazy-drama-bat-crud-randomness today, that this simple little notion was able to bring a smile to my face.  I used this multiple times today. Oh yeah! I blame my hormones for all…

For the love of Sharpies!

I have been working my butt off all day!  In the past week I’ve gone through 3 highlighters and a whole mess of Sharpie pens – this studying business is no joke! That said, my diet has been a little wishy-washy as of late. Thank goodness for the meal replacement shakes I have for the 24-Day challenge! They taste so yummy! I now blend the chocolate shake with a banana,…

TOM is HERE

Let me tell you now, I’m hormonal – which means that I’m pissy, tired, SHOUTY and couldn’t control my tears if i tried. It’s been all chick-flicks and seriously craving some Ben&Jerry’s…and then my rational mind briefly stepped in to present my health-conscience. That bitch! Trying to diet and workout these past few days has been so-freaking-hard! I’ve wanted to just curl up into a ball and lay on the…

Whoop, Whoop!

Six days down! Can I get a whoop, whoop?! I’m not starving, which is a plus. My workouts have been pretty consistent (I missed Friday night, but did get a late night walk in on Saturday, so I didn’t get thrown too far off.)My energy is soaring! I think that’s my favorite part. It’s almost like there’s extra hours in my day. Being extra-productive is epic and reading for class…

Love Affair

Day Five! I went to work and came home to the beau and one of my besties waiting for me. Coffee run (the Starbucks ban didn’t last too long, but I did stay within my caloric intake limit for the day and even got a TALL size. Can anyone say epic restraint skills?) followed by lounging and a Thai food adventure. It’s been great and the energy is still coming…

The Cleanse

Alright…so far, so good. It’s been three days and (though I feared it may happen) I was not constantly sprinting to the bathroom. Anytime I hear “cleanse” I think the worst! Spiritual cleansing is one thing, but flushing out toxins from the human body just sounds dangerous.  Thankfully, the Advocare Herbal Cleanse is surprisingly gentle. Yes, I’d been told it was kind, but I had my doubts and feared for…

Holy Chobani!

I’m officially a yogurt-convert!  Let me tell you, I have always loathed hated never particularly cared for yogurt. It’s a texture thing. No one has ever gotten it right for me. Dannon…eh. Yoplait came close with the (dare I tell you?) Go-gurt line, but I soon grew out of the flavors, as they’re specifically designed for the more sucrophillic teeny-weenie kiddies and NOT for the more adult palate. [Yes, I…

Kickin’ A Cold!

I am one of the insanely blessed persons who gets stalked by allergies, all year long! It’s annoying and awful and they manage to make things worse. UGH!  For the past two days I’ve felt siiiiiiick. Mostly allergies, a bit of a cold. The horrible sinus headaches…oh my! Bleh.  Total grossness.  I felt like this: My taste buds have been all screwy. I made meatloaf for the boys and it…

Milestones

I’ve been absent for quite a while. Sorry about that, friends! I do have fantastic news though! Life got quite crazy hectic wonderfully adventurous! I graduated! Sic ‘Em Bears! It will not be “official, marching across the stage and grabbing my diploma” until December because most of the fam couldn’t make it, and it simply wouldn’t be the same without all of them there! Sic ‘Em Bears! Class of 2012…

Test Anxiety

I have finals this week, hence the lack of posts. On top of pushing back workouts and trying failing seriously trying to not eat junk food at my desk, I also have the worst case of test anxiety. As a senior who has sent out graduation invitations and is getting ready to have a major party with friends and family…well, it would flat out SUCK to bomb my final exam….
