hey guys! if you couldn't tell by the title, life is great right now :) with the exception of my calculus class, but all in due time...
i had my first appointment at duke today in three months, and it was pretty good all in all. my weight is very normal and my mentality couldn't be any better. however, they do want me to continue to take my medication until the winter and then i can try to come off of it. they were proud of me, which was an awesome feeling to say the least.
on a not so good note, if you've been following my blog, you know that i'm lactose intolerant. i have been able to continue to eat yogurt though. well lately, i've been having a probably throwing up a lot of what i eat and having tummy issues and being really shaky. apparently this is in correlation with my recent obsession with eating yogurt at least twice a day. i was giving an ultimatum to not eat ANY form of dairy. i seriously teared up, i don't know what to do! we stopped at whole foods and picked up a couple of soy yogurts and coconut yogurt, but soy usually doesn't agree with me and i'm not a fan of coconut :(
here are my goodies i got:
coconut milk yogurt, soy yogurt, vegan cheddar, and i finally tried carob! IT WAS AMAZINGG. better than chocolate, i swear. those are carob covered almonds and raisins.
mini whole wheat pita rounds, baked blue tortilla chips, sf english toffee syrup, MY N.C. STATE LICENSE PLATE!, dark chocolate bacon bar, world market sea salt dark chocolate bar, raw foods blueberry crunch bar, odwalla superfood bar, and NUTRITIONAL YEAST FINALLY!
-i'm beyond excited to have finally picked up some nutritional yeast, i've seen all of these recipes and now i can finally make them!
-the sea salt bar is just as good as the sea salt lindt bar for half the price
-the bacon dark chocolate? GASMIC. totally worth 6 dollars.
-here is what my car looks like. before vs. after.
honestly, i wasn't really impressed with sweet tomatoes, they didn't even had BALSAMIC!i had to use italian, which i'm sure had dairy in it.but it did tide me over for a good bit.
the rest of my life in a nutshell? the new boy is going greatt, jeff and i don't hate each other or anything, i still love casey (HOLLAAAAAAAAAAA SOULMATE!), i have a new roommate!, i'm struggling in calculus but i'm getting it together now, my rash is better except around my eyes, american idol sucks this year, soccer is amazing, i strained my left flank, we have our next game thursday night, and i leave for europe in t-minus eight days :)))))
i missed you guys so much! i could probably write a book about my life, but i think i'll try to sum up the high points in bullets.
-jeff and i are completely over...no hard feelings though.
-casey and i aren't going to be roommates anymore, because she is going to CAROLINA! i still loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee you soul sister :)
-mom went to trader joe's last night and didn't bring me back anything. i know what you're thinking...this should be first on my list, right?
-there is a new boy in my life :)
-i thought i tore my LCL in my left knee at soccer...i hit a girl knee to knee going full speed. my knee was stuck at a 90 degree angle for a week before the doctor straightened it out because my leg was turning purple and went cold. i would have rather been giving birth than to have my leg straightened out again...i had it done TWICE. but i never got an MRI, so i hope nothing is torn. it feels better now.
-but i thought i broke my shin in my last soccer game. it's just a huge raised bruise though :) it was raining and the field was a mud pit. here is a picture AFTER i washed off.
-i've been going outt with my friends :)
-my senoir soccer season has been BEASTLYY and amazing. i love my girls :)
-i've been having allergic reactions all over for about a month now. we thought it was from a sodium hydroxide spill in my chem. II class...
my animal science class goes to the hog pens (yes my school really does own hog pens, yet takes away our college classes) and scrapes out their shit feces. we figured out a break out everytime i go, so i'm not going anymore. darn, no more smelling like butt :)
-i'm going to europe in two weeks!! london, paris, and stonehenge :)
-my calculus grade is horrendous. i've never had such a low grade, but it's because i have missed a bunch of that class due to my rash. i have two zeros in the gradebook, so i guess that warrants my 78.1. seriously, i think i defecated my pants. i've never even had a B.
-on the other hand, soooooooooo ironically, i'm doing extremely well in my ap literature and composition class. i'm such a math person, i really don't know what's going on haha.
-i bought 77 dollars worth of soccer paraphenalia and haven't told my mom yet. i should get on that.
-my 2007 honda civic's transmission is messed up. i haven't told my mom about that yet either. fml.
-i decided i think i want to go to medical school again...i gave up my dreams for something else, but i'm going to follow my heart now. and i really want to be a doctor. i guess that would explain why i watch discovery health 24/7. except for fringe and trash tv. but you already knew that, right?
-and i think i want to either transfer to the university of michigan in a couple years, or at least try to go to medical school there...i'm so freaking excited about my futuree :)
judge me. :)
-i did officially get my major changed from nutrition science to biological sciences-human biology.
-sorry this post is hella random, i have thoughts everywhere i'm trying to get covered.
-speaking of nutrition, everything on the ED front is so great. actually, i shouldn't even say ED front. literally, it's like gone. i can't say i NEVER have thoughts, but it's just so freaking liberating. i got chicken tenders and fries from applebees a couple nights ago and never thought twice. AND had a snack later. i've been staying up kind of late haha. my new hang out hours are from like 10-4 hahaa. i like to call it college preparation.
-i do have something bothering me i can't really talk aboutt and i don't know what to do about it, but i guess it will work outt.
-i'm getting a blackberry in a couple days. holla!
-i still eat yogurt messes every 0.324 seconds.
-i can't live without peanut butter or hummus anymore.
-i will visit the store in the middle of the night if i'm out.
-if you've ever seen the movie office space, you'd appreciate the present i got for my dad on his birthday yesterday.
red swingline stapler. i'll burn the place down.
-i think i've run out of things to say right now...i'm still reading blogs everyday, sorry i have been bad about commenting, but i'm still here!
-my life is basically school and hanging out now, just the way it should be :)
-i love you guys!! i'll be back if i think of anything else! i'll try to start commenting moree.
