It’s Friday!!! For once this week actually went by pretty fast. It was probably because I didn’t have much homework. You know what that means? Next week I am going to be swamped with things to do. Bring it.And since it’s Friday, I figured I would do a Five Things Friday post. Five things that have been going on in my life, and five things you all really want to know, I’m sure.
1. Yesterday marked the first day of Alex’s Sugar Free Challenge. And that’s exactly what it is…a challenge. So many of my favorite foods have sugar in them. Frozen yogurt, I will be back for you. I will admit, I did eat a Nature Valley bar yesterday after giving blood. I mean, I didn’t want to pass out or anything so I just had to 😉 But besides that, I have been on top of it. No pumpkin butter, sunflower seed butter, chobani, or frozen yogurt for this girl. Wahhhh! Sweet potatoes have been like candy…and I have one left.
2. I gave blood yesterday for the first time everrrr. And it will probably be the last. Just kidding, just kidding. The worst part was probably waiting for 2 hours. That’s right…2 hours. For somebody who hates needles, I cannot believe I actually did it. And I am happy to say that I didn’t pass out. Win! I made sure to not look at the needle or blood bag. I would have
probably passed out then. Would I do it again? Yeah…I mean I wouldn’t spend my Friday nights giving blood but I saved a life, so it was worth it.3. I am stoked to visit my sister in Portland next weekend. Since it’s Veteran’s Day, I don’t have school on Friday. That means 3 day weekend. Holla! I haven’t seen my sister in 2 months so I need to get my dose of sisterly love. Plus, she’s in Portland…PORTLAND! I freakin love Portland. One day, I hope to live there or Seattle. Either way, I love that city and am super jealous that she gets to live there.4. I have found so many great gift ideas on Pinterest. (P.S. Are you guys sick of me talking about Pinterest? Yeah…me either.) Since I am a poor college student, these DIY gifts are going to be perfect. So far I have found something for my mom, dad, sister, best friend, brother’s girlfriend, and cat. (Yes. My cat.)
5. I decided that I am going to run the half marathon on Sunday. I don’t care if I have to crawl or walk…I’m going for it. You guys gave me lots of great tips. So I am going to take today and tomorrow off. This is going to be hard. I am not used to having two days of rest but I know that it is what’s best for me so I will just have to push away any ED thoughts that come up. I am going to continue to drink water like a mad woman. My water bottle will be by my side these next couple of days. I will also make sure to fuel my body as best as possible. My mom told me to up my protein a little bit, and since Mom knows best, I will do that. And of course, I will listen to my body and play it by ear. If I wake up on Sunday light headed or weak, then I won’t do it. But fingers crossed that it all goes well!
