I started my brother's abs workout yesterday (250 crunches last night). Crazy right?! He wants me to do 1,000 crunches a day, which I thought was INSANE?! But after doing 250 last night, I can SO do this.
I already did my first 250 this morning, it's almost time for my second set. Then two more sets tonight! I've got this y'all ;)
Happiness for the day: 38 days until I get to go to McCall!! I am SO excited to see him. Thirty. Eight. Days. So doable. EVERYTHING is doable right now :)
-Strawberries -Strawberry Greek yogurt -Green Tea with lemon
It's crazy, I'm becoming fuller faster. Also, diverting from the diet (even though it was JUST a little bit) gives me crazy heartburn. It's completely amazing what eating healthy does to you! It makes eating unhealthy virtually impossible - physically impossible because of heartburn.
Happiness for the day:
We're celebrating my parents 30th wedding anniversary today at the Sanford House! I'm excited, and so very proud of my parents. I can only hope to have a marriage like theirs someday :)
Gahhh I love storms! It stormed just now and it was beautiful to listen to.
I am so fortunate. I want to try to not take anything for granted.
My family is wonderful and I am so excited to see them this weekend.
I am beyond lucky, blessed, fortunate to have a man in my life who cares for me the way he does. He brings so much beauty and love and joy into my life, no matter how many thousands of miles away he is.
"When you're Happy for No Reason, you bring happiness to your outer experiences rather than trying to extract happiness from them. You don't need to manipulate the world around you to try to make yourself happy. You live from happiness, rather than for happiness."
So according to Day 1, for dinner I am going to have:
-A large portion of chicken (probably won't finish it all!)
-Any steamed or raw vegetables from the list (I chose steamed carrots)
-A Cup of Green Tea (with mint, my preference) (it's still steeping haha)
Thus far, the chicken smells amazing! It's cooking on my George Foreman at the moment. I marinated it in Garlic, Herb & Wine by Grill Mates; it is QUITE accurate to say this is the first time I've ever marinated something (self goal: to become an excellent cook by the fall semester).
Bon appetite :)
My Happiness for the day:
Taking a bike ride to campus in this glorious weather. I met up with Erica and Tyler and we went to sit by the new fountain that was built this year. Then we climbed a HUGE tree. I am going to miss them terribly, but hanging out with them today was great.
