‎"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him" -Isaiah 64:4

"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.
-Albert Einstein

“When I was young, I thought confidence could be earned with perfection. Now I know that you don’t earn it; you claim it. And you do that by loving the wacky, endlessly optimistic, enthusiastically uninhibited free spirit that is the essence of style, the quintessence of heart, and uniquely YOU.”
-Cecelie Berry

“It isn’t necessary to know exactly how your ideal life will look; you only have to know what feels better and what feels worse…Begin making choices based on what makes you feel freer and happier, rather than on how you think an ideal life should look. It’s the process of feeling our way toward happiness, not the realization of the Platonic ideal, that creates our best lives.”
-Martha Beck

"Many of us have spent a lifetime trying to be what we’re not, feeling lousy about ourselves when we fail, and sometimes when we succeed. We hide our differences when, by accepting and celebrating them, we could collaborate to make every effort more exciting, productive enjoyable, and powerful. Personally, I think we should start right now.”
-Martha Beck

Fitness Minutes: 5,844

My Goals:
My goals are constantly changing, but right now they are...
1) Get back to a healthy weight (I am 5'4 and usually weigh around 105-110 but with school, stress, and and newly living on my own, I've gotten down to an unhealthy 85 lbs).
2) Maintain a 4.0 GPA (gotta get into pharmacy school!)
3) Learn to cook!!!
4) Get a body like Brigitte or Marilyn :)

My Program:
SparkPeople's calorie guidelines aren't exactly set up for weight gain, so right now my plan is to try to eat above the recommended calories it has set to maintain my weight.
This is a problem for me; I don't eat a lot of calorie-dense foods (lots of fruits/veggies, deli meats, etc).
Right now, I'm restricting all cardio exercise (except my daily walks to class). I do allow myself yoga and strength training a few times a week.

Personal Information:
I'm currently in my third year as an undergrad. I've decided to pursue pharmacy as my career of choice, so working towards getting into pharmacy school takes up most of my time.

Other Information:
I'm always up for a good (& cheap-- I'm on a college budget!) recipe suggestion :)

    I will definitely tell you how the book is. I need to finish my other one first! I always find way too many little things to do all day long and I never give myself time to actually read it! But I'm determined to finish it by April so I can go see the movie.

    I read your blog about your counselor and OMG. I can't believe that. I don't know much about it, but ARE there actions that she can take? That's ridiculous. It aggrivates me so much - when people seek help for themselves and there are still a million things in the way. I hope you find someone else to go to - maybe even report her. That's awful. I'm sorry :-/ I hope you still stick with it though. You can do this!

    Hope today finds you well, strong, and motivated :)

    Hey Girl!
    Just posted Fiesta Rice recipe in my blog. Sorry it took so long! Thank you for the message ! I'm glad that you have been able to walk a lot lately!! I need to find somewhere that I feel comfortable walking. We have a nice townhouse but not such a nice neighborhood. I probably watch way too much Cops/Americas Most Wanted type of shows hahahaha! Did you watch the Bachelor re run of where Chantelle took Brad to that Morge place and showed him the compartment he would be cremated in!??!?! I had really been going for her!! Oh well hahah I knew she was gone when that happened. The other Chantelle like with the long brown hair that told him she "loved him" first....I guess I like her best BUT I don't really honestly see it happening for him with any of those girls for different reasons. Who are you going for? One thing I wanted to note was when he went to Chantelles house they were dripping RICH and literally after being with Brad for like prob an hour her dad gave him permission to marry her!?!?!! Did that strike you as odd! LOL talk to you soon!

    Just saw you commented on the Grilled Hummus Sandwich. Oh My Gosh. That sounds amazing. Can't wait until summer! Here's another simple one for you, if you like avocado. I could eat this every day. Toast two pieces of Ezekial bread (it's in the freezer section. Spread half of an avocado over the two slices( you want the avocado to be a little chunky, not all smooth). Then sprinkle with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Heaven!!!! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
