‎"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 :)
