I went to type the title of this blog and I have apparently already titled a blog the same way since autofill put it in for me. The entry I had before though had a question mark at the end, and this one has no question mark. I had a "bad" week and a half, but it was a great week and a half, and I deserved it. I graduated from college, and I wasn't about to stop myself from celebrating. I have definitely set myself back, but nothing is forever, and now I know that I would prefer to eat healthy. It was also just really hard since I moved and I didn't have any of my healthy foods as I went through trying to use things up.

I have a few worries - one is that now that I will have a lot less free time so working out will become very scheduled. This might help, and it might hurt. Time will tell. Food wise, I have to get used to my new grocery stores and figure out how to live with the two new roomies. For one thing, I haven't gone grocery shopping yet for real because our fridge is filled with BEER. FILLED. ENTIRE BOTTOM SHELF!!!! And we're not going to drink it that much. It's full because we overbought for a get together and they all went in the fridge, and now my roommate won't take it out because she says it will go bad. Frankly I defer to her on the alcohol information, but it still pisses me off a little because I'm not sure that's entirely true and my yogurt will DEFINITELY go bad if I can't refrigerate it. I'm also a neatnik in the fridge/freezer, and right now everything is just shoved in there, so this could be a problem as well.

This is a new chapter - and it's going to take forever to settle in and figure everything out - I need my kitchen to be food friendly and right now it is so far from it I'm really nervous that we'll never get there. But I know we will. I also need to figure out laundry...sigh. New life.

One trouble goal: Work out EVERY DAY, at least for ten minutes. I have fallen way off that wagon and I think I have to start over again with the habit, especially because I don't have the same resources I had this past semester. I'm posting it here so I have to stay honest. I used to think I could just squeeze in a workout later in the day if I skipped one earlier, but I know I won't actually do it. So no more excuses.

    Sorry about the beer problem... maybe try and give some of the beer to your neighbors, haha. Or convince your roomies to drink some of it.

    Sharing a kitchen with roommates (especially roommates that are not trying to eat healthy) is a big challenge... I shared a kitchen with two guys... one definitely who would never consider eating healthy and the other was my boyfriend .... it was really hard to eat healthy. Maybe stock up the freezer, on the canned goods and on any foods that can be left on the counter (bananas, whole wheat bread, etc.)

    Good job on making a goal to do a workout everyday! I'm proud of you! Congrats on graduating! emoticon
