I've been running around everywhere today! Almost 100% moved out of the Kappa Chi Corral, which is sad :( I'm going to miss living with Hannah!!

500 crunches down. Who woulda thought THAT was possible?!

I had a 16oz. Strawberry Nirvana from Jamba Juice for a snack today, yummy :)

500 more crunches to go!

Tea Time

Yum yum green tea with mint :)

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 :)

This is my Happy Place

Candy and Lollypop Cupcakes « The Cupcake Blog

Because I can't eat this stuff in real life... I just look at them all day.


For lunch, my family and I went to the Sanford House to celebrate my parent's 30th Wedding Anniversary.

I didn't bring my phone in, though I wish I had so I could capture how beautiful the place and food were!

For lunch I had:
-Black Coffee
-Une crêperie avec des fruits de la mer
-Steamed zucchini

For dessert:
-My mom, brother, and I split the Chocolate Decadence (and it was JUST that)

The Sanford House is absolutely magnificent and makes you feel as if you've left Arlington.

(and now my mom is insisting that I have my wedding reception there?? I'd have to get engaged first.. Thanks mom.. A little ahead of ourselves)

Ta ta my loves!

Petit Dejeuner

There we go! Off to a good start today :)

-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.

Interesting huh??

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 :)

Today was an awful food day :(

Minus the fact that I did pretty well at dinner..

There was my grandma Jean's famous potato salad in the fridge when I got home.. (had a few bites..) and then there were cheese-its...


Alas, tomorrow is a new day. (since the world didn't end & all..)

Still very much in love. And he is still very amazing.

Dinner Out

Scary thought.. Actually going OUT to dinner.

We went to Chili's butttttt I think I did well!

-Grilled Salmon
-Steamed broccoli

I didn't eat the rice (but I did cheat with unsalted chips & salsa....)


As of this morning though - I've lost 7lbs!!!!! Woooo!! My BMI is down to normal. And THAT my friends is something to be happy about!

Also.... The world didn't end.

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.

Happiness for the Day

"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."

Note to self:

Work out BEFORE dinner.
I am so hungry right nowwwwww. I can't eat after dinner! Not allowed!

Making an epic playlist though (since I can't make a CD of just 24 favorite songs).

Work it Out!

I feel good about this :) this summer is going to do my body good!

- Marie Louise


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.

- Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone


So I decided to start a blog to keep track of my diet and all things that make me happy (not like I don't have a tumblr, twitter, or facebook...)

I really wanted to focus on my diet through this blog, so HERE is to almost a complete day 1 of my diet!

I will be adding a picture of my dinner soon, the chicken is still marinating :)
