These last couple months have flown by – now there are only a few more weeks of this semester and I’m off for holidays! While I’m looking forward to Christmas, I have to say that I really love school. I’m already looking forward to coming winter semester in January.
Here are some bits and pieces of my life lately (via Instagram)…
I’m happy to say that I’ve only bought from the cafeteria once (yay!) and I’ve been packing my lunch every day. It doesn’t have to be a boring sandwich every day. On Tuesday I packed some delicious cauliflower soup (from the amazing Pioneer Woman’s cookbook) that my sister made. It was such a warm and cozy lunch!
I loved learning about the muscles of the body – lots of memorization, but so fascinating! In anatomy/bio we’ve now moved onto histology…not quite as much fun.
There are some really practical classes too, and I just finished writing a paper which mentioned about how important it is to warm up. I even wrote a post about my favourite warm up moves. It’s funny how I never used to worry too much about warming up, but now I never start a workout without some dynamic stretching.
Somehow I was one of the winners to Vega’s Energizing Smoothie contest, which was a surprise. Now I’m happily stocked with some of my favourite products for quite a while now…happy, happy.
I’m still doing a lot of low carbing and I love it. With a little creativity, I’m thankful I can still enjoy some of my favourite treats (hello Starbucks!) low carb.I deal with a lot less cravings and I feel so good when I eat this way. This makes it almost 2 ½ months since I’ve eaten gluten, so I’m still going strong (and I barely miss it!).
Did I mention how much I love working out at the gym? Seriously, it’s one of the best things ever. I know most of you hang out at the gym all the time…but as a country girl, I never had a gym close by, so I did my own workouts at home just by running, workout DVDs, and lots of sports. Now, I really love being able to target train my whole body with machines (or free weights). It’s another source of happy.
Hope you have a fabulous day rejoicing in all that God has given us!
