WHERE does the time go?!

22 09 2010

Hello ALL! Wow, oh WOW. It’s been a LONG time since I “really” posted.

I have missed y’all of course and I’ve missed blogging, BUT the “break” has been nice. School is absolutely KICKING my B-U-T-T. Uganda really taught me SO much…I’ll be honest. I miss it a lot, and I am SO emotional lately. I miss my babies, my kids, the LOVE, the people…everything. America is so..different. I think of them ALL THE TIME. My locker is filled with ADORABLE photos and my room has a “uganda flair.” This summer was the most life-changing summer I’ve ever had. My perspective has been COMPLETELY altered. To witness 6 year olds waking up at 4 AM to go carry a 25 lb. can of water down to a well EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. just so they can wash clothes is MIND-ALTERING. I could go on and on, but I will stop! :D

Between LIFE, working out, eating, my boy, school, soccer games..etc, blogging just HAD to take a back-seat. I think posting 1-2 times a week is gonna be my max. 5 honors classes, taking the AP Euro test in May, the PSAT AND PLAN in October, research paper, starting to have to think about college, life is just BUSY!

My workouts have been SLAMMIN’! Here’s pretty much what I’ve been up to…

  • Cardio: one long sesh (45 minutes)+ 1-2 short sessions (20-30 minutes)
  • Strength: 4-5 times a week (including ABS, ARMS, AND LEGS)
  • Yoga: 1-2 times a week

I have noticed a huge change in my arms, getting much stronger. YAY!

Food photos anyone?!

Banana bread!! Sugar free (AGAVE!!) and “normal!” (Both almost 100% whole wheat & ridiculously GOOD!)

And now, my favorite photo of all…

Your banana bread looks good, I’m glad agave and ww flour worked, because sometimes, substitutions like this can end up desastrous (I am a living proof)

It’s cool that you are spending more time ‘living life’, aka school, friends, working out and stuff like that :) I now post less than once a week or so…but I’m happier!

xoxo

Kudos to you for sending time with people who really need help! And how amazing is it that in the end we are the ones who benefit so much from the people we help?

Have fun living your life offline and don’t apologize!! Blogging is nothing compared to the real world. :)

I know what you mean- life just gets busy and it’s hard to post everyday- I’m lucky if I get in 1-2 posts a week. Sometimes on the weekend, I will make a draft post ahead of time and have it ready for a day in the middle of the week and just push the publish button. Love all of your eats! :D

oh wow, you must have some interesting stories to tell! i can imagine perspective would change after witnessing such a different lifestyle. not that i can compare my experience with yours, but after moving to Sydney i’ve met SO many people from every corner of the planet (no joke) and i LOVE listening to them talk about their homeland. it really does make you realize you are not the only person in this world. it’s good to have that reminder sometimes. :)
