8 days. 8 DAYS since I’ve last posted?
Truth is, I don’t even know where this week has gone.
I upload my photos today and find 53 from the week. Hmph. When did I eat that?
[overnight bowl: 1/2 cup whipped cottage cheese, 1/2 cup greek yogurt, 1/2 cup thick oats, 1/4 cup blueberries, stevia, almond butter]
[two eggs, cinnamon blueberry oatbran eggwhite panckake, syrup for dipping]
Ok, I do remember eating that. That’s been my new favorite combo! I have been eating a ton of egg lately. I always eat a lot of eggs, but it’s been even more than usual. I love them! Depending on what i’m making, I use both whole eggs or liquid egg whites. They have different uses.
But anyways, I completely missed my usual What I Ate Wednesday post….fail….in favor of knocking out an accounting project. Not because I would rather be doing accounting, but because I wanted to get it duuuuun with if you catch my drift. I’m finding out that I am actually rather good at accounting. Does that mean I like it? Well, let’s just say I’m planning on sticking with my dietetics plan.
So, yeah. I’m late. But hey, I have food pics today and that’s what matters!
[turkey, colby jack, sprouts, spinach flat out wrap, s&p cucumbers]
[three cheese omelet with mozz, laughing cow, blended cottage cheese, and garlic gold nuggets. cukes, sweet poato rounds with peanut butter and dark cocoa sauce]
I’m really glad you all understand that my life is crazy right now, and sometimes you just have to skip out on the fun things in order to take care of business.
Sometimes it’s easy to fall into the “all or nothing” mind set, but it doesn’t have to be that way. I can 100% go to school, work, exercise, blog, have a social life, etc, etc….as long as I learn to do it in the right amounts.
[2% greek yogurt mixed with 2 tbsp dark cocoa and stevia...aka chocolate mousse]
[pumpkin protein dough with sun warrior, kashi cereal, thick oats, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and peanut butter]
By no means do I need to either blog every single day OR stop blogging altogether. Life is learning how to manage things. College life is learning how to manage complete chaos, haha. Seriously, I didn’t know what hard work was until I started college. And I think I’m finally getting the hang of it.
[chinese take-in: chicken fried rice]
[turkey beef meatballs] Loved them Naomi! <3
[with roasted spaghetti squash, marinara, and toast for dipping]
It is SO EASY to let stress eat you up and make you miserable. Ugh, I’ve been there over and over again. Now I’m realizing that things are never going to be perfect and there will undoubtably always be twists and turns along the way. But guess what? There’s good news. It always works out. If you think about things that have happened to you in the past, haven’t they always somehow worked out? Even if it wasn’t the way you originally thought it would happen.

[double fudge brownie with dark cocoa powder, 2% greek yogurt cloud]
So the point is, there really is no need to worry. There is no need for constant stress, anxiety, fear, or weight on your shoulders. Why do that to yourself when things are going to be just peachy anyways?
I guess all of this talk is more geared towards myself. I admit to being hard on myself, probably too hard at times. Sometimes I just need a good reminder that life is passing by and instead of filling my mind with unnecessary grief, I should be enjoying the moment. After all, today is a gift…that’s why its called the present.
Until next time,
