Only have about a half hour until 2010! I know it's cliche and typical but I have some resolutions:

  • Do amazingly in nursing school (straight As!!)
  • no procrastinating whatsoever!
  • keep room clean/organized
  • learn to drive
  • lower body fat %/build muscle
  • read more books
  • be an athlete! (run 5k?!)
  • exercise EVERYday. even if it's just for 10-20 min!
  • practice more meditation/yoga
  • eat clean and vegan as possible
  • be the strongest, most beautiful, intelligent, amazing goddess I can possibly be :)
That's it for now...until next year!

question everything

I'm having a good time doing nothing. But it's not really nothing, I'm learning. Questioning my political and spiritual beliefs which is exciting. It's good to be open minded.
Question everything!

INSANITY: sweatyface

That's my post-Insanity sweatyface~ I've done Insanity about three times now and only when I haven't been able to go to the gym. It definitely lives up to it's name: it literally is insanity. Speaking of doing new sorts of workout routines, a class called boot camp conditioning is now being offered at my gym. My mom and I are probably going to go Thanksgiving morning, so very excited!
Until then~

my favorite

This is the first semester that I haven't gone to school in years, 16 years probably. It's been mostly boring and I've been missing school. I start nursing school (ikr!) in January so now I feel like I need to take advantage of the time that I have left doing things that I love such as: drinking tea in my favorite mug, riding my (new!) bicycle, going to the library,reading, exercising, shopping at thrift stores, being on the internet, watching movies and documentaries.

 Yesterday I made myself a delcious carrot, celery, and apple juice. I love to have some sort of fresh drink whether it be juice or a smoothie. like right now I'm drinking a chocolate and peanut butter smoothie ;D
after riding my bike around for a while (actually my dad's bike), I stopped by Whole Foods to get some lunch. It's all vegan and delish. I also picked up a tea that I've heard so much about and it was half off! I can't wait to try it, it's my kind of tea!

 This is my cat, Luna, laying down in someone else's backyard..... she escaped from me and got me quite frustrated but thankfully she jumped back over and I caught her. Spoiled cat.

I also took "before" pictures that I probably won't post until it's "after". I think I will write about my weight loss/fitness journey sometime soon.

 Yesterday I went to the grand opening of the first H&M in Arizona! It took two hours by bus and got there around 9:30 AM, it opened at noon. I got some free stuff plussss 25 dollars to spend which I did :D. It wasn't what I expected but hey i'm sure they're going to get better stuff. I'll make the two hour trip again sometime in the future if its worth it (or get a ride, sheesh).

minor setback

So halloween was uneventful which is a good thing really because not much candy was eaten.
Yesterday while riding my bike with Larry going to school, I was hit by car. It was such a shock and blur, I didn't know what to do. The driver kept asking if 911 needed to be called but I kept saying no. I got up right away with minor injuries (lots of road rash and bruises; today I'm very sore) and a broken bike. I felt so stupid and mourned the loss of my bike (I loved it :<)
In other not so nice news, I won't be able to go to the grand opening of H&M on thursday because of my brother. Buuut I'm thinking that I should wait until I look better (lose that last bit of weight!) to buy cute new clothes. So it's a plan! For Christmas I can go there and buy clothes that will look amazing on me because I will look amazing :)

Today, I went to the doctor because I needed a physical to make sure I'm healthy enough for NURSING SCHOOL. Yes I got into one and will be starting in January, scary and exciting at the same time.

From depression to bliss

This morning after I came back from a run in the park/dropping off my brother, I made a delicious smoothie. Peanut butter chocolate smoothie: AMAZING and creamy! Seriously the best ever and I love how it's not only delicious but healthy. Oh how I love my healthy lifestyle.
 This is me. In the afternoon, still wearing my workout clothes and braiding my dirty hair. I look tired but I am happy. Two years ago (for stupid reasons) I was very unhappy and depressed but now I am the complete opposite. Sure I'm not living an exciting life at all but I am satisfied with what I have. The other day my mom told me I now have a very positive outlook on life and such (despite many angry rants on subjects that I'm passionate about) compared to how I used to be. She said it was really hard on her to see me go though those times. Now that that's all over I'm relieved and content with my life no matter how dull it is because it's only going to get better.

The weather was lovely today. I finally got around to buying a new natural peanut butter and this one is divine! I wanted some to eat with celery om nom nom.

 Not the best picture, I know! But today I made a vegan pineapple upside down cake. It turned out alright but I'm not a big fan of sweets that don't contain chocolate. I didn't have a proper pan as you can see but I made use of what I had. 
Later this week is halloween so I'm going to be making a lot more delicious things. yaaaay
