Day 282

Sometimes I crush the healthy lifestyle thing. There are days when I wake up early, go for a run, make healthy food choices, and drink plenty of water.

Well, today wasn't one of those days. In fact, I don't think I ate a single vegetable today, and I only managed to get one serving of fruit. So what did I eat? Well, let's see. My day started with a coffee walk turned coffee and donut walk, then the downward spiral continued.

  • A cup of coffee with two hazelnut creamer packs
  • A powdered donut
  • A donut with purple and gold sugar sprinkles (that I documented on Snapchat--see below)
  • A glazed donut
  • A cup of blueberry tea with one artificial sweetener pack
  • A Go Go Squeeze strawberry applesauce pack (HEY SERVING OF FRUIT!)
  • A kind bar
  • A serving of Stouffer's meat lover's lasagna
  • A 12-oz can of Coke
  • 3 or 4 macarons that Rebecca left this weekend (yum)
  • 30-something oz of water (and drinking more now!)

I swear I'm my mother's daughter...but I don't wear lipstick as regularly or as well as she does.
So yeah, I didn't crush the responsible decision-making today, but I do think my actions are clear indicators that I feel empowered to make my own decisions no matter how destructive they are. What's the point of being an adult if you don't have a carb-tastic day every once in a while? I'll brush my teeth and take my vitamin, and when I awake in the morning, it will be a new day for making healthier choices. 

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Anyway, look how happy I am in this photo from this afternoon! The Higher Education Student Personnel Association (HESPA) took photos of some current students in shirts to represent their undergraduate alma maters, and I showed up to represent the best school in the land before heading to class.

Tomorrow will be a healthier day. Maybe.

Representing my alma mater and my future alma mater! 

Something that made today great: Surprise donuts in my building!
Time I woke up: 7:30 am
