What I'm Eating :: Breakfast!

Hi Guys!

So with my new training for the Warrior Dash, one thing I've been doing is eating healthier (although I could be doing better). One meal I love to make is breakfast! I have the same thing at school everyday, which I'll share with you when I get back, but this is what I eat for breakfast at home.

So this picture is awful and taken at a strange angle with my webcam. Haha

But basically everyday at home I have a Broccoli & Cheese omelet, a clementine, strawberries, and 1/2 a grapefruit. My drink of choice is usually water but sometimes I'll have those Starbucks Frappucinos, which I shouldn't....but they're so darn good!

Sometimes I switch out the fruit for different kinds (cantaloupe, apples, pears). It adds a nice variety. 

This took all of 10 minutes to prep too. I just cut up the fruit while the eggs were cooking and set it all up! Give it a try, healthy breakfasts can be easy and yummy! Enjoy!

What I Got For Christmas!

I got so many awesome things! Here are my favorites :)

(My photo-editing skills are bomb, obviously.)

1. Stuffed Animal Seal (from Save The Bay, where my mom works)
2. Atlas Shrugged
3. 500 Days of Summer (my favorite movie that I finally own)
4. First Season of Boy Meets World...Win
5. Lego Harry Potter Yr 1-4 XBOX360
6. Alan Wake XBOX 360
7. Physician's Assistant Practice Exam Book (going to be so helping with Grad school!)
8. XBOX Live Gold Membership (Netflix on my TV...hollah)
9. Anatomy Flashcards (These are awesome! Could have used them this semester though...)
10. Squirrel Socks from my brothers girlfriend
11. A Loofah. (haha thanks mom)
12. Clue!

I also got Sims 3 Pets for my Mac but it didn't work. Some stupid patch issue with EA Games that I would have had to start all over and reinstall. No thanks. I traded it in at Target for Atlas Shrugged and ink for my printer. Haha

And for my all time favorite gift..... Drum Roll....

Bunny Footie Pajamas!!
(You can tell I had tons of room to take this picture -__-)

I LOVE these things!! Comfy fleece pjs with bunnies on them? Awesome. Only cons are that my feet are too small for the bunnies so they slid off and that I have to take the whole thing off to pee...and my house is cold (I didn't want to take them off!)

My super awesome momma also got me a pair of tights from We Love Colors! (yay!) But they haven't arrived yet (awh). But when they do, I have the perfect dress at school to pair them with and I will give you my first outfit post! Stay tuned!!

What I'm Watching (Wednesday)

I haven't been dead; well...kind of. Just super busy and have had no time to blog whatsoever. I'm going home for Christmas on the morning of the 23rd. I suspect the posts to be piling in then. I promise :)

So here's what I've watched recently...

A Christmas Carol
I love the story of A Christmas Carol but I didn't really care for this version. The movie seemed to be just for the 3D look, some scenes main purpose was to wow the audience. But there was a lot more symbolism and made the storyline much darker. Definitely not for young children. Overall, I don't regret watching it, but probably won't see it again. I'll stick to my Muppets Christmas Carol :)

The Last Song

I watched this because I'm going to see the Hunger Games in March and hadn't watched any of Liam's work before. He's attractive...the movie isn't. One word. Bad. 

Miracle on 34th Street
I loved this movie! I've heard the older one is much better but this is the first one I've seen so I think it's awesome. A cute story about Santa Claus :) I loved it. Will definitely watch again and again.

Alice in Wonderland
This wasn't a remake. It was a sequel. Alice come "back" to Wonderland and the movie feels just like Narnia. It wasn't bad but I won't watch it again. Special effects were amazing; Helena Bonham Carter was fabulous. But overall, the story was lacking.

That's all I've been watching. I have two tests and a job interview today so its pretty crazy. I'll try to post this weekend if I have time between studying for finals.

Short Sunday!

These shoes!

Love this guy!

Pretty pink kitchen

This phone from ModCloth! Eek! :)

This is all I have time for today! Homework.homework.homework.

Busy Busy Busy!

Hi guys!

I've been super busy lately catching up with school work that I haven't been posting. One thing that I'm going to start sharing with you is my journey into getting fit and healthy!

Recently, we had a small obstacle course at my college that I had a blast running through! & I learned something about myself. I CAN DO IT! I really enjoy races like that where you don't need special "sport" skills to succeed, just your own willpower and endurance. I'm getting some friends together and I'm planning on completing the Warrior Dash in June. I printed out the training schedule and I'm starting Monday. I'm going to try and revamp my eating habits as well. Being the heaviest Exercise science student, it's about damn time I start this! There's also a 10K I'd like to participate in during April. With the training schedule, I can do that! This is crazy and a big jump for me, but I honestly feel like I've found something I'd love to do (athletically). A few of my friends are doing the Tough Mudder course, which, I don't think I'd be ready for just yet. But maybe in a year or two.

I'll keep you posted and stay tuned for a Super Sunday tomorrow!

Also, I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving!! (I've been working) :P

Room Plant

A week ago, I got a Christmas Cactus for my room!

I can't wait for it to have flowers on it! It should fully bloom right around Christmastime. But already, one flower is starting to open up!

This one is the biggest bloom I have! There are others but none like this one. My mum did a fabulous job picking out this plant for me :)

UPDATE: This flower has literally tripled in size and is starting to open up in just under 24 hours! :D

I'm trying to make my dorm room more like home. First step: Get it Cleaned & Organized! :P

Crunchy Sweet Potato Fries (ahhhh they look SO yummy!)

Beautifully Organized Pyrex :)

I LOVE Zooey's outfit :)

This would make my bike SO badass :)

I LOVE this laundry room! :)

Would love to decorate my room with these!

Have a great weekend! :)

So I've still been sick. Turns out its bronchitis or something so I'm on two antibiotics and I have to breathe with a nebulizer. Not fun. So I've just been watching Netflix & learning to crochet!!

I started making a small blanket. Mostly for practice because I've never crocheted before! :)

(dont mind my nasty sick face, I'm a mess)

I've already done all this since last night. I've always knit but I YouTubed crochet videos and I really love it! It's so much easier than knitting, quicker, and easier to fix mistakes, too. I'm also working on knitting a scarf. I'll post pictures of both when they're done! :)

I Love...

Getting the perfect message from a Raspberry Chocolate :)

This made me smile. I've been giving second thoughts to a lot of decisions I've made lately and worrying about the future but you know, I need to just think about the now. Because this is very true :)

Have a fabulous day errrrbuddy!

What I'm Watching (Wednesday)

The past two weeks (since I missed a post) I've watched:

Hot Tub Time Machine
I feel like this movie was very underrated. It was hilarious! Mostly because it didn't take itself seriously. It's a jokey comedy that was very entertaining! I really don't need to explain the premise, it's kind of obvious. This is a very funny movie, I recommend you see it! :)

I can't say I was disappointed because I came in with very low expectations. It fulfilled those. It was choppy, short, and the plot was lacking. It was humorous at times but I definitely wouldn't watch it again or recommend it. Unless you're bored and theres nothing to watch. I loved Katherine Heigl, however. But then again, she is pretty awesome.

The Crazies
Okay, so I LOVE anything zombie/apocalyptic/dystopian but this movie is just...perfect. It even had a nice government conspiracy-like plot to it that makes you think. The graphics, character development, story line, everything was just perfect. Although you don't really see what happens after this apocalypse in the end, it's a satisfying ending. I will watch this again and again. One of my favorite zombie films to date. (Aside from Dead Snow, of course)

Love & Other Drugs
This movie was good. To be honest, I kind of mixed it up with Crazy Stupid Love when it came to the plot, I kept waiting for Ryan Gosling to come in. haha But overall this movie was good. It had the perfect balance of touching and humor. It dragged at some points but generally I'd recommend you see it! Although for me, it's a one time see.
By the way, this isn't available on Netflix. I watched this on HBO ondemand.

My Weekend

This was my weekend :(

I've been sick since about Saturday. It started as a bad allergic reaction to my cats and my friends' then spiraled into a sinus infection/horrible cold. Been getting about 4 hours of sleep a night. I AM feeling better however, today I went to class and my fever is gone.

I will be posting more now that I'm better.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, Everyone!

As promised, I wanted to show you what Halloween looks like in my area of northern Mass....

I spent today, having fun with my buddy Shannon as she rolled down the snowy hills in Fitchburg. as you can see, we have a lot!

Shannon is Bat Girl and I am...

(this picture is from last year, but its the same costume, whatever!)

As we drove around today (because our classes were cancelled) we took some pictures of the local damage from the snow.

Trees are down ALL over, and the parking lots are so empty because all of the stores were closed due to no power. We went to Target but they didn't have power, just generators for a few lights and the registers. It was weird, shopping in Target in the dark. But yeah that was my Halloween. 

How was your Halloween? What were you dressed up as? :)

Super Sunday!

These BEAUTIFUL paint by numbers. I just love how they look in this yellow stairway!

Mini garden! Like a terrarium...only cuter :)

These super cute potholders! :)

I love this quote. It seriously motivates me to get off my butt!

LOVE this shirt! One of my favorite books!

This adorable sweater!

I live in Massachusetts and we got hit with the snow storm that I'm sure you know about. We have a foot of snow on the ground and our power is going off frequently. I had some time to throw this post together but tomorrow I'll take some pictures and post about the storm. Many trees are down all over the campus. It's a mess. 

Well, enjoy the rest of your weekend!
