Lots to Say, Little to Look At!

7 04 2010

Hey gorgeous gals!! I hope everyone is having a FANTASTIC beginning to your week!

It’s been a hard week, so far! I have lots to say, so let’s do a list!

  • 38 Days of school left! HECK YES. It has NOT been the best year, but a memorable one. No one said being a freshman is easy! But it’s still been one of the best years of my life! I’ve really enjoyed it; it’s just been really hard.
  • Doing some college/my future research and I gotta say that I LOVE Naviance (my high school’s college guidance website that they use)
    • college board is a great website too
  • I’m slowly understanding what I need to do, the classes, etc…I think I’m going to meet with our college guidance counselor as well
    • Physical Therapy here I come…but I’d LOVE to be a dietitian too!
  • Currently watching: Uconn vs. Stanford (women’s championship game!)
  • You know what’s frustrating? When a teacher expects you to know something that’s chapters away…OK RANT DONE.
  • I had a BEAST workout yesterday—will share in a minute!
  • I was hoping to make it to yoga tonight, but I couldn’t so I did 45 minutes of Core Yoga #1 (yogadownload.com) and it was glorious! Worked up a FABULOUS sweat!
  • Soccer today was great! We played bare foot, which was SO FUN! Helps with passes and touches as well!
  • I have a 11 page research paper due tomorrow! But I finished…YEAH!

I dearly wish I could share photos with you, but my darn Camera Broke! I have a phone on my camera but

    1. It’s not fantastic and it’s hard to get a photo, plus I have to email it, then copy it…
    2. I have been eating pretty “typical” food for me: PB, Greek Yogurt, apples…

LOVE y’all!

You did enough workout for the both of us. Thanks, because I was feeling lazy today 🙂

I can’t believe you only have 38 days left! Summer is so close 🙂

I played soccer barefoot the other day too. I’ve actually been doing a lot of things barefoot because I haven’t been wearing the right shoes to play outside in. I like being barefoot anyways, I feel like I’m little again!
