Fresh Vision

Sunday, September 16, 2012

I need to remember that my goal isn't just to survive freshman year, it's to learn to thrive as an independent adult - caring for my body, loving the people around me, excelling in my work, but most of all, glorifying and enjoying God.

So I'm recommitted to sleep. I'm recommitted to eating quality over quantity. I'm recommitted to running/walking every morning, even if it's just for ten minutes.

I have homemade hummus and quinoa in my fridge to kickoff a new week under a new vision. I am romancing food, learning to enjoy the patience of cooking and savor every bite. Then move on to the next adventure, and savor that too.

Okay. College, take two.

I'm done bulimia. I'm done all-nighters. I want to do this right.

    It sounds like you are on the right path and armed with the right mindset! Kudos to you for taking time for your health as well as all the exciting things you are experiencing at college!

You know, you always hear people grumble about the freshman 15, but I'll share something with you: I actually LOST 15 pounds within the first 6 months of my college experience. Yeah, dining halls have some bad dinner choices, but there are also tons of good ones too, all ready for you! Plus if you feel like enjoying the weather at 1 PM and wanna go for a walk, you can! (As long as you don't have class! :P) Have a great time!!

    Yahoo! I like fresh starts. Stick with it, but don't be too hard on yourself - you can have another fresh start when you need it. (Just don't let that be an excuse to lapse!)

I want to hear more about the yummy things you're enjoying. Romancing! Fantastic. Food should be a source of joy and nourishment, not a source of angst.

And yay for running or walking every morning! That's fantastic. Balance is a wonderful thing.

What other adventures are you savoring? emoticon

Keep it up! We've got your back. emoticon
