Aloha, Spark friends! I've missed y'all. I went AWOL from SP for a bit but now I am back and ready to rock!
Long story short, things were pretty awful the past month or two. Grad school is stressful enough on its own but my "having roommates" experiment became unbearable and I just ran out of willpower to balance staying on top of my schoolwork, dealing with my roommates, finding an apartment mid-year in a college town, AND trying to focus on eating well and exercise. Sad to say, I cut out the healthy-stuff and reverted to some old bad habits. You know, there really is a remarkable amount of gluten-free junk food out there. It's quite unfortunate!
Anywho, long story short I have FINALLY found a new place to live! So next weekend I'll be back in a teeny tiny apartment all of my own, no terrible roommates, no kitchen conflicts, and totally able to eat, sleep, destress, and exercise as I please. Oh, freezer space...it'll be SO much easier to eat healthy when I'm able to store homemade foods again! And buy meat in bulk. And cook large quantities of foods on the weekend, and actually sleep through the night without loud roommates stumbling in and banging pots and pans at 2am. Also, I will be living adjacent to yet another bike path through the woods, walking distance to campus, which will be great incentive to get out and walk/run as often as possible. Ah, I am so, so happy to be moving!
It's good to be back, Sparkfriends. I hope you're all having a happy, healthy, festive start to the holiday season.
