Sorry I’ve been absent since Friday…
Classes started Monday!
So I officially have 3 days of my junior year of college under my belt.
I’m not gonna lie…the past 3 days have been super overwhelming. I transferred from a university of about 1,500 undergraduates to a university of about 25,000 undergraduates.
Ummm…it’s been a bit of an adjustment, to say the least!! Between trying to find my way around campus, figuring out where to purchase textbooks and trying to get a handle on my schedule, I feel so stressed out.
In fact, when my mom walked in the door last night and asked me how my day was, I immediately burst into tears. I wonder if I’m ever going to grow out of having childish meltdowns? :)
Luckily, I’ve had a few awesome mood boosters that have helped me adjust my attitude and turn my week around. After pep talk from my wonderful parents and a Skype date with my sweet boyfriend, I was soon feeling much better.
Last night’s dinner also helped boost my mood…
Two crunchy ground beef soft tacos with lettuce, tomato, homemade guac, cheese, and hot sauce alongside some refried beans. Tacos used to be like my all-time favorite meal. Seriously. Whenever my mom asked for dinner suggestions when I was growing up, I’d say tacos. We haven’t had them in ages. They definitely hit the spot!
For dessert, I ate one of these gigantic peaches that my mom bought the other day:
Please notice that most of my mood boosters have to do with food. Like how I recently discovered and fell in love with this cereal…
Another mood booster of the week was that I don’t begin class until 10:00AM everyday, so I’ve gotten a couple of great workouts in the past few mornings!
Monday morning I did one of my favorite Firm video workouts.
Yesterday morning, my mom and I took my dog on a little run/walk – we walked the first mile-ish and then ran the last 2. When I got home, I did a little interval elliptical workout that looked similar to this, but I shortened it up a bit.
This morning, I headed to the gym around 6:30 and did my own thing on a spin bike while I rocked out to an awesome playlist for about an hour. I missed spinning sooo much when my knee was acting up. It felt good to be pedaling away again! Being able to run and bike without pain is definitely a mood booster.
Last mood booster of the day? Stopping at my favorite coffee shop for a blended latte.
By the way, thank you so much to all of you who gave me some advice on long-distance relationships! I already miss Ryan so much! So feel free to keep the tips comin!
I hope you’re having a great week!
