Happy Good Friday. Do people even say that? It’s not really a holiday, just a religious observance. Well anyway…at least I have no school! Even though I had just two days this week, I am dead. Those two days killed me. I need some sleep and some rest. But I don’t think I will be getting much of that because I am just so damn excited for DC! I have so much to get done before I leave late Sunday night to go to my grandparents house again, but all four of us, my mom, grandparents, and I will be driving down (not flying). We will be leaving sometime very early on Monday morning, aiming to get down there by 9-10am for the GW admitted students day. From there, all the fun begins ;) I’ll be going to the American accepted students day as well which is on Tuesday. But in between all that I will be acting like the DC-loving-tourist that I am and visiting all the wonderful sites I didn’t get to on my last trip. I feel like a kid on Christmas morning right now! I can’t wait to say hello to Georgetown, Mr. Lincoln, and the Washington Monument which finally has it’s scaffolding taken down! Just a few more days, ah! Still, I need to focus and get work done before playtime ;) Plus, I have those AP tests coming up in the beginning of May…better start studying for those…maybe…well yes I need to. I am not going to throw that $350 cost for the tests down the damn drain! Anyway…
FTSF is off this week so no sentence :(
Wednesday: Coconut Peanut Quinoa Flakes
Thursday: Academia In Spartenburg
Blog Posts I loved this week:
Don’t be fooled by labeling. Just because something is organic does not mean it isn’t still processed crap.
There are a lot more factors that go in to getting that definition than just your body fat percentage.
It is no easy task. Hard work, dedication, and determination.
FYI People were never ever meant to consume another animals milk. Just saying ;)
What a bad-ass ;)
Get rid of the fear and take control.
Interesting. I would be really curious what my results would be.

I totally agree with this! It does not matter what you look like when you are working out!
Great info for us bloggers!
No one else’s opinion matters on what you do as long as you feel good/right about it.
Change up your rep ranges to see different results!
A different take on “meditation”.
In a time when being healthy is getting muddied and hard to understand.
Taking your plank to the next level. You’ve got to move on sometime!

I have always felt like these could be a bad idea for a lot of people and can become abused.

Cardio & Strength Circuit. A great workout to bust out anytime!

Fashion Trends: Jumpsuiting. I’ve never tried a full jumpsuit, but when I have tried on a romper…I looked really stupid. But damn it, this jumpsuit looks so pretty!
Cauliflower Rice Paper Baked Samosas with Tangy Mint Chutney. I can actually eat these! How exciting ;)
Healthy Chinese Take-Out Sauce. Even though I have been on a major Mexican kick, I may need to start up my Asian flavor obsession again!
Oven-Baked Teff-Coated Chicken Nuggets. Why have I still yet to buy Teff? I must have a problem!
Berry Oatmeal Pancakes. I die.
A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ The overwhelming joy I am feeling right now to be going to DC! O how I have missed that place so much <3
+ Getting my official Acceptance letter/packet in the mail from GW finally! I cried tears of joy as I was reading the letter to my mom. :)
+ Receiving and getting. Selfish sounding, but I am so happy to have treated myself to new clothes last week and they all fit! Yay for not having to worry about sending them back. Plus I bought some accessories in SC. And I received a ton of packages in the mail all week. I will be sharing everything with you next week and so on ;)
+ Taking another step in crushing my fear of eating out. I still will never implement this for joy, but when I have to I know I can survive!
+ Easter weekend! We won’t really be celebrating, but my brother will be home at least. If you are celebrating I hope you have a lovely day. If not, just have a lovely day og yoga, good eats, and love!
So Tell Me:
+ What is the last thing you bought for yourself?
+ Would you ever wear a jumpsuit? I am dieing to get one, now…just need to find the right (and affordable) one!
+ Are you doing anything special this weekend?
So since I will be away next week, I will be pre-writing all my posts for the week. Recaps will come the next week, but follow me on Instagram ad I plan to be photographing every moment!
