Morning Off

Omelette breakfast

This morning I didn’t have Chem lab since it is the first week, so I slept in late, went to the gym (which wasn’t crowded like the last time I tried to workout) where I ran 2.25 miles on the treadmill and then had a late breakfast of an egg white omelette with olives and blue cheese, fruit, and coffee to go. I have to say that I was disappointed in the omelette. It was dry and too salty with both the olives and blue cheese. Next time I think I will try one with veggies and regular cheddar cheese. It was partly my fault because I went so late that they ran out of the good toppings like tomato and mushrooms. Now I think I will go check out the library for the first time and maybe get some homework done. Cheers!

What’s left of my coffee



Hello there,

Orientation week is now over and classes start tomorrow. That means I will finally be on some sort of schedule and hopefully not staying up too too late. This week I have started to learn how to adapt to my new lifestyle as far as eating and exercising. Today I tried out the bigger campus gym (just did the elliptical), and ate in the cafeteria for breakfast and dinner. I am happy to say that there are plenty of healthy options available, but I am sure I will get tired of the same cafeteria foods repeated over and over. I still have a lot more learning and exploring to do in the coming weeks, so stay tuned! Sorry I don’t have many pictures, but here is one from breakfast:

Four Days Until…

College!!! That’s right, I move in on Tuesday, so that means I have been busy packing lately.


I started the day off with a yummy mushroom and cheese omelette and a cup of Joe. I made the omelette with one egg and just the whites of another, fresh mushroom pieces and a slice of sharp cheddar. This was only 170 calories and it kept me full for hours of packing. I am just about ready for college!



Do you think it’s too much? Haha

I have decided to try to cut out most carbs, especially sugar, because last time I followed an Atkins Diet sort of thing, I lost 5 pounds, but then I stopped. I think the best part of it is that I am pretty addicted to sugar, so this forces me to avoid sweets. Last time I felt more energized and slept better too, and I didn’t even miss the sugar! I not going to be super restrictive this time because I am trying to make a lifestyle change, not a short-term crash diet. My slogan: everything in MODERATION.

I am now ending the day walking on the treadmill while watching Mr. Popper’s Penguins. Have you seen that movie? It’s kinda cute so far.
