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!
