Today’s Happy Note: Guess who just finished her junior year of college? 🙂
And boy am I ready to be done. This week has been exhausting. I am very ready for summer! I actually like working a lot and I feel more adult during the summer. I don’t tend to run wild and I love how the season lets me get into a rhythm and a schedule in the way that the school year really doesn’t. I am planning a few exciting little projects to keep me entertained so stay tuned!
I decided to celebrate my little junior year graduation with two of my favorite things: Oprah magazine and frozen yogurt!
I like to have a balance of food and non-food rewards, so a frozen treat combined with a magazine is perfect for me! My next big accomplishment will probably be rewarded with a massage! Hmm, I’ll have to think of something to accomplish 🙂
Do you reward yourself? If so, what is your favorite little treat?
Finals Health Week Challenge:
Yesterday (day 4) was kind of meh. I had a lot to do so I knew I wasn’t really going to have time for a workout. I might have had room for a walk if I hadn’t procrastinated so much. People are always shocked to hear this but I am actually a major procrastinator! On everything. And it just turned into one of those days where you almost don’t have the energy to think up meals or snacks so you just eat cereal all day. Does anyone else ever do this? Hey, I had a lot of frozen fruit with my cereal. That counts for something!
Mash-up of eats from yesterday and today:
Lots of healthy nom nom noms.
I think I did pretty well today (day 5). I did a relaxing but pretty quick nine miler this morning and walked another two or so miles this evening. I think my amount of physical activity today probably made up for not doing too much yesterday! I’ve had a nice mix of treats and nutrition, too: dried berries, popcorn, raisins, peppers and broccoli, chocolate, spinach, frozen yogurt. You get the picture. I had two really nice, clear mental moments today too: once was after I finished writing my contemporary civilization exam (my last one). I suddenly realized that I am a smart woman! I just wrote, like, 15 pages about the implications of liberty for human equality in the political state! I don’t think I’m stupid. 🙂 The next moment came this evening at the movies with friends, when we were goofing around and taking funny pictures of each other. I saw a picture of me and one of my friends and for the first time in a long time, my immediate reaction was “gosh, that girl looks pretty and interesting”, rather than “that girl looks fat.” Sounds silly, but this is a big deal for me!
I did have an Adventure today for Adventure Friday (saw Ironman II with friends — surprisingly good) but am too tired to write about it! I am planning on having an adventure tomorrow though so you guys won’t be too adventure deprived.
I think this picture pretty much sums up the evening! My friends and I are quite silly…We were trying to pose in front of the Sex and The City poster but it didn’t really work out.
Has anyone done an Adventure Friday post? If so, send me the link and I would love to read it and share it with my other readers!
I hope you all have a most wonderful weekend filled with lots of laughter and contentment! And pretty May flowers too!
