I woke up to a BEAUTIFUL sight out my window…..which was closely followed by clouds and more sleet-y rain 😦

Before I got all bundled up for class I had an apple, and I packed a Pure Protein Bar for after class and I also sipped on some coffee with a frothy top ( from the instant coffee and coco powder I added<— tastes like a MOCHA :))

Then I went to BIOLOGY CLASS and bought some books…. ( $234 for an ORGANIC CHEMISTRY book :0) and yes I’m taking organic chemistry *sigh*

Around noon I met up with some girls to get lunch and I made a decadent salad. It contained: tomatoes, cucumbers, shredded carrots, pasta salad,corn feta, tofu,sprouts and a big artichoke on top ( which I tried..but didn’t like)

If you haven’t noticed by now my college salads include ALOT of different things. I like to add alot to my salads to keep them interesting and all the food keeps me full. Luckily my school offers tons of options!

After a statistics and chem class I went to KICKBOXING at the gym. It was SUCH a great work out. An hour of jumping, punching, and abs.

I’m so happy to be working out again. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Speaking of which…. I have a goal to go to the gym for the rest of the week. I really do miss it and I sadly feel like my body is loosing a bit of it’s tone. ( only something I would notice of course)

I used to set monthly goals. But I’m trying this new thing to set WEEKLY goals. It’s less intimidating and less stressful for me.

Do you set weekly or monthly goals? If so what are they??

Mine for this week are: to get back into my work out groove and eat smaller portions ( since I can sometimes get carried away at meals in a buffet style dining hall) .. ALSO I promise to start posting dinner pics. 🙂

Goal for down the road: When I come home for summer I WILL MAKE A RECIPES PAGE AND START COOKING 🙂 ohhh how I miss the kitchen.

ALSO! I will now be writing health and fitness articles for hercampus.com ( the Umass section). My first article should be up by next week and when it is, I will OBVIOUSLY be linking it here. so STAY TUNED!


Nighty night errybody♥
