TGIF!

Hooray for my second post! I’ve already met/introduced myself to some of the wonderful bloggers out there and love how sweet and welcoming you all are ;). Gee, you sure know how to make a girl feel special! Spanks very mooch.
I planned on posting something the past two days, but didn’t get around to it, thanks to Calculus mumbo jumbo. Arghh, it’s been sucking the life out of me! Good to know Spring Break begins next week. I’ll be going off to ‘le hometown’ of Ecuador on Wednesday. Could I be more excited? NEGATIVE.

Wednesday was a day that made me realize something very tragic; I barely have any clothes containing my favorite color: green! I had to TOTALLY imrpovise and throw on the closest looking green thing. I think I did a pretty decent job:

Not to shabby,eh?¬†I need to go green shirt shopping. Grr…

Thursday was SUCH an inspiring day. For Aerobics, we have to get into groups and make up a 20 minute workout. We decided to divide the work evenly, so I was responsible for the cooldown. Ofcourse, I made sure it was yoga. When we were through, coach told me I should be a yoga teaher! It made me SO happy! I’m gonna be like my momma, who happens to be one of the coolest yoga teachers of all time ūüėÄ

Today, ended up being a good day. It started off horrible. My mom and I got into a HUGE fight, first thing in the morning. (I don’t even remember why to be honest.) However, every time we argue, it always ends the same way; my eating disorder being brought up. I can’t help but blame my eating disorder on EVERYTHING.

I know for a fact it has caused a lot of family stress, and I can’t help but feel more than guilty for adding any problems. Saying it kills me inside would be more than an understatement. So, by the time I got to school, I was nearly crying. But then, I had a realization; I can’t let this eating disorder effect me the way it has been lately. It’s already done A WHOLE LOT of damage.It’s already robbed me of enough. I can’t let it tear me away from my mom. Our relationship is WAY stronger than that.

Sure enough, I texted mommy and apologized and told her everything that I wrote here and then some. She let me know that I have to stop blaming myself for every single problem the family has, because my eating disorder isn’t the only cause for all of the stress; there are many other factors involved. Knowing I’m getting a WHOLE LOT better has already taken a lot of stress off her chest. It made me feel much better ūüėÄ

Friday’s are usually good days because for one; it’s Friday! And I get to go to mommy’s yoga class. And that I did. It was awesome! It was much needed. Areobics¬†class has¬†been kinda tough lately. Plus I went for a jog before class, so I needed to loosen em tight hips.

Well, I’m off to bed. Gotta wake up for work tommorow (I work at a grocery store as a cashier. Yeah, very exciting. Good night (if anyone is actually reading!)

Hello world!

Bienvenidos! Welcome to my blog! This is my first¬†day, and can honestly say that I have been looking forward to this moment for a long time! I’m thooper excited! So let’s get this show on the road! Learn all about me in the “The story” section of¬†here (for those of you that had a hard time figuring out that yourselves! Haa). I have been reading food blogs for a while now, and its about time I started one of my own. Ahh so here we go!

Today started off pretty darn hectic from the get go. You see,¬†my alarm, nor my mothers alarm went off this morning. This is a bad bad thing, because I’m always running late to school on a regular day, could you imagine what¬†happens when we wake up late? Oh man! School starts at 7:40, and let’s just say¬†the alarm went off @ 7:15 (it takes us around 10-15 minutes to get to school.)¬†The first thing I usually think of when I wake up in the morn’ is food, (thanks to the obssesion). I was looking forward¬†to eating my <“>Kashi Go Lean cereal, but knew that was impossible (I’m a VERY slow eater!) There were a million thoughts racing through my mind (what am I gonna eat, wear? I can’t forget my gym clothes!) I finally just threw on the closest piece of clothing that I could find, and rushed downtairs. I had two minutes to decide what to eat for breakfast.

Damn! Just heated up a corn tortilla with PB&Co’s White Chocolate Wonderful (‘gasm in a jar!) and called it breakfast. Jumped into my moms van, and got mentally prepared for Aerobics (which I happen to have 1st period). You see, school starts at 7:40, thus giving us 10 minutes to change into our gym clothes. It was already 7:35, and madre and I went weren’t even close to school. So, I decided to change in the car. Was that and experience.

By the time I got to school and made it to the locker rooms, the coach was already locking up the room, allowing me to put my books and other shizz my locker (thakfully). Wow, I had just woken up! It was insane. Rest of the day was pretty normal, I ‘spose. By the time lunch came around, I was starving! My breakfast is usually something heart (yummy oats!), but for obvious reasons, today was not the case. Luckily, I had made myself a PB&J sandwich the night before! It was yummo.

Got home from school, and decided that today was the day to start a blog. And that I did. Around 4 oclock, i started to¬†Really look into it (I had looked into blogging before, but not profoundly like the past week or so)¬†while snacking on some carrots with hummus (yum!) I decided to go on a walk around 6; I LOVE to walk in my neighborhood. I live on a golfcourse, so it’s the most relaxing thing I could possibly do.

Before doing so, however I snacked on some apples with cinny.

That was one tasty apple! The walk lasted about 1.5 hrs (I really like long walks). It was fairly cold for South Florida (like it has been for the past month!) Urghh, sun, come back por favor!? Got home, and plopped myself down to finish creating the blog.

Dinner consisted of Veggie Spareribs wrapped up in a whole wheat wrap, coleslaw and peperonata. Yum! Peperonata is basically sweet and sour bell peppers. I felt inspired when I got home from the walk, so I whipped up this recipe that I had found a while ago. Here’s the recipe for the peperonata:

  • ¬†4 bell peppers, seeded, and cut into 1 inch peices
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • About 1/4 cup balsamic
  • 2 tbl olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sugar (I used Truvia)
  • 1/4 cup craisins

Directions:

  • Place oil in a deep frying pan over med hi heat. Add onions and bell peppers and cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Add vinegar, sugar, craisins, and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil.
  • Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve.

  

That was so easy yet so yum! I cleaned the kitchen, made daddy’s lunch for tmw, and now I’m here,¬†being distracted by the computer/blogging for the first time, doing my Calculus homework. Hmm, time for me to the hit the sack, I’m tired! Hm.. I want chocolate. Diana’s babies, here I come! (These things are highly addictive! Yet, I don’t feel the least bit guilty eatin em! Ahh so good, and pretty healthy dessert!)
