I thought I would do a quick check in and let you know how I have been. I am in the midst of final exams right now so needless to say life is a little bit hectic. On that note thought I am very excited to be done my first year of university. It sounds weird to say that even. My eating has been ok. I am not always making the healthiest choices but overall I am proud of what I am doing. As someone who turns to food as soon as it gets stressful exam week usually means hell to my waistline.
I am looking forward to tests being done for a few reasons. First off all I am going to see Elton John up in Grande Prairie on April 26th. y excitement can not be contained, the show is going to be great! After I get back from that concert I start work full time again for the summer. I am excited to start making some money again. The sooner the summer starts the healthier my bank account is. I am not sure if I have mentioned it on the blog yet but I am road tripping to Seattle this August with my aunt and cousin. Does anyone have any must haves for places to see and eat at down that way?
This post is all about the random. I just finished a jumbo red bull ( I know it isn’t healthy) so I am full of energy at the moment. Today is one of those days that I need to find an outlet for my energy. One of the perks of going back to work on a normal schedule is having a routine again. I will be able to pre-plan work outs with a little bit more consistency. Getting my butt into gear is going to feel great! After all my first ten km race is in 36 days. It is coming up so fast.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I will catch up with y’all after exams are done on Tuesday.
This weekend was both great and horrible. Let me explain.
The greatness comes from all the wonderful time I got to spend with my friends. Lunch with Brooke, dinner with Natasha and coffee with a few random people. I never feel like I get to spend enough time with people and going forward I am going to make a bigger effort to see the people who are important in my life. It sounds really simple but somedays it is just so easy to be a hermit. With final exams coming up in the next month time is going to be at a premium and I am really going to focus on using my time well.
The horrible from this weekend is a two parter. I certainly did not watch my calories. I didn’t even pretend to. Natasha and I went to the Keg Saturday night to celebrate her birthday (Happy Birthday!!) and I don’t think you can have a light meal at the Keg. It doesn’t help that I ordered the lobster and had two cocktails. Oh well, there is nothing to gain by beating myself up for it now. Sunday morning I woke up with a migraine that left me in my dark room until about 7pm. What a total waste of the day. Even after I started to feel a little bit better I wasn’t all that hungry. I let my headache be an excuse for eating KD and Ritz crackers. On either day I didn’t food journal, and whether I am eating wholesome food or packaged junk I like to be consistent with food journaling. It helps me see any triggers or where I went wrong.
This morning has already been a better start. I am headache free and just made two blueberry pancakes for breakfast. I know I have a fridge full of berries and spinach so a smoothie is on the horizon. I am a little nervous to weigh in this week but all I can do now is make good choices and try and get my but in the gym for some cardio. Here is to a better week!
