Week 2: It's getting better

Saturday, April 13, 2013

So after I struggled a lot with hunger during my first week (I'm counting weeks this way because that's how I count time during school: 10 weeks in a quarter!) I sort of gave up on the grain-free thing. I just can't handle how hungry I was, it made me cranky and all I thought about was food.

So this week I started out eating only veggies, meat, fruit and yogurt but halfway through I added whole grain spaghetti, triscuts, raisin bran cereal, milk and cheese! I know I can manage to eat all these things in moderation. I haven't weighed myself this week so hopefully I haven't gained anything back, but if I did, I know it's just my body adjusting. I'm going to work hard and balance eating what I need to and exercising!

On another note, I'm trying to make a personal goal to be more outgoing. Since coming to college, I feel like I don't really have any friends here. I have my old friends from high school, one who I talk to almost every day, my roommates who I love, and my "work friends" who are cool people that I get along with but never spend time with outside of work. I just don't know how to meet people this late in the game. I feel like by this late stage in the year and when I'm halfway through college, no one needs friends like I do, they already know everyone and don't really care to add people to their friend group. But my roommate has convinced me that I don't need to think like that so I'm going to go with her to some social events (NOT parties because I'm not into that.) and try to stop being so shy!

    Congrats! Sounds like you are doing the spark way.... your way! Whatever works for you! We are not into condemning any certain type of food or exercise! You can be more outgoing. And I'm sure people want to be your friend. Your friend is right you can't think of making friends in that way. And good luck and have fun at that gathering!
