Legs weren’t havin it today.
Just another "starving college student" in her junior year trying to stay healthy, stay happy, stay fashionable, stay organized, and keep my home (whether it be a dorm or an apartment) gorgeous and functional all under a budget. It's not easy, but I am determined to prove that just because I am in college, that doesn't mean I can't have nice things, and more importantly, prove that the freshman 15 doesn't need to exist!
This blog is about being healthy (both physically and mentally), staying active, and budget friendly fashion and decorating and organizing ideas to help get you through college and life!
The contents of this blog are just the things I do in my life. I am a Psychology major at a Northeastern University, not a licensed nutritionist or dietician. The tips I give on health are simply tips I've accumulated from the Internet and from the few nutrition/health classes that I took when I was a nutrition minor. I do not claim to be a professional anything, just a 20 year old girl trying to live a beautiful life!
Feel free to ask me any questions you may have!
I am happy to help!
Legs weren’t havin it today.
Is it ever going to warm up!? The weather made this run more brutal than it needed to be, but weather aside it went well. I just cannot wait for it to finally warm up! I am deffinatly looking forward to spring weather!
All that matters is that I ran! Despite walking outside and being so frustrated by the cold, I ran. I did it and that is what counts!
I woke up this morning in my OWN bed with my family under the same roof and my cat at the end of the bed, the way it should be. I am so happy to be home, but honestly when I woke up in the middle of the night I had no idea where I was! I was so exhausted that I think it slipped my mind that I was home! It was very humerous. Anyway, I woke up, this time knowing where I was, and the warm, bright sun was shining through my window (which is super dirty haha). It is currently warming my skin as I try to wake myself up to go make a real breakfast and not something on the go like at school. I am soaking up every second being home, especially in terms of eating healthy meals and drinking water like it is my job!
Today I’m not too sure what I have planned, but I do know that I will be going for a run in this beautiful sunshiny weather, soak up some vitamin D, and hopefully go out with some friends from home tonight. As always I will be spending the day with my love, my nephew.
This run, considering it was freezing outside and that I haven’t been running in about a week, maybe a little more, went great! I started out slow and I could feel my calves tightening from this new unexpected, unwanted case of planterfaseitus, but after stopping for a stretch I felt my confidence come back immediately. I stopped, put some snow on my calves and just felt like a badass. And I love that feeling more than anything. I feel like, and not that it’s about them, but I feel like people are looking at me thinking I’m crazy for doing this on a day like today, but at the same time I hope people are getting inspired by me going out there and facing the harsh weather. I use the weather as an excuse at school, but honestly it wasn’t that bad. I think I’ve just lost the motivation that I once had and I’m working on getting it back. Listening to Lady Gaga is a BIG help. She makes me feel wonderful. Born This Way got me through this run.
I’m home for spring break and I have the opportunity to go for a run on the road that started it all! I’m so happy to be home, despite the cold weather I am going out and going for a run!
