"It is time for every one of us to roll up our sleeves and ut ourselves at the top of our commitment list." - Marian Wright Edelman

this morning started out kind of rushed (i woke up 20 minutes late!), but ended up having a pretty good day anyways. i had plans to go out with a couple of my friends this evening, but i have been a little apprehensive all day about it, and decided to cancel. i'm just not comfortable hanging out with them after they decided it was cool to smoke pot...sorry, its just not my thing.

i came home from school a little irritable, so i decided to hit up the gym, per doctor's orders. i was told to exercise at least 3x a week to keep my mood up and other unmentionables, but i just haven't. i figured today would be a good time to start, and i'm really glad that i did. i ran 30 minutes on the treadmill and did about 15 minutes of strength training. my treadmill run was in intervals (4.5 mph and 6.5 mph.) i think i ended up running around three miles or something like that. i felt AMAAAAAAZING afterwards. it has been so long since i have been allowed to have a decient work out, i forgot the feeling you get afterwards. it tends to magically make all of your troubles disapper :) however, during my run, i kept getting light-headed and i wasn't sweating even though i was tired and definitely getting a work out. anyone know why?? i mean, i feel fine so i'm not that worried, but i'm curious about it.

dinner tonight (so far, i've been munching) was a large sweet potato with cinnamon and peanut butter and some blue corn chips and hummus. deeeeeeeelicious :) jeff and i are definitely going to have to figure out meals when we live together because we are on opposite ends of the food spectrum :) i still love you regardless! :) and you will try hummus soon bwhahahhaaaaaaa.

and on the TMI side, i'm trying to figure out what is currently causing my digestive issues. it's just getting worse. fortunately, cutting dairy out has made most of the pain go away, but the bathroom problem is getting worse. i always have to make sure one is close by, or something awful could happen...and its starting to happen at school which is slightly embarrassing. if anyone happens to read this and maybe knows something that would help, i would loveeeee to hear something.

i'm turning in early tonighttttttt :) i'm starting to freak out about collegee! i'm supposed to get my decision from n.c. state tuesday night at 7 p.m.! :)

yep, that's me standing in the belltower.

ciao bella :)


  1. I miss working out, you are so right, the feeling of a good run can't compare with anything else.

    Good luck with nc state results! :)

  2. that feeling helps push me to keep my weight up...nothing can replace that high you get :)

    thank you! i actually found out last night that i got in!! no idea why they sent it early, but i'll take it :)
