Up and down.

The past 24 hours have felt like a roller coaster. Besides the fact that I left home and the BF's yesterday and was pretty bummed about it, I got my letter of acceptance from the other grad school (the one that I'm leaning towards going to) when I got back to CP. So of course I'm really excited about getting in, but I'm also pretty stressed out about the life decisions that I'm going to have to make soon. It's pretty scary that I'll be pretty much out on my own after this summer. I spent the whole night looking through the 2 different schools' websites and thinking about all of my options. I hate being stressed like this, especially when it keeps me from getting quality sleep. I'm so happy, but I'm also so nervous.

Anyways, eats have been pretty good and today should be getting back on track in the health department. I surprisingly didn't gain any weight while I was home, so I must have been doing better than I thought. I was totally feeling what Lara @ Thinspired said about either being "on or off" with healthy eating. I just need to be on again.

Breakfast yesterday was made by the BF. I had 2 scrambled eggs with a slice of toast with spread.

And a thin slice of Mom's banana bread :)

Yesterday was the BF's mom's birthday so we went over to his sister's house for a little celebration. I didn't take pics because they all don't know about the blog yet and I didn't want to start that conversation yet. But I had 2 slices of pizza and a smallish slice of caramel cheesecake.

I hit the road at about 7pm last night. It takes me 2 hours to get to CP from his house, so I always like to have some snacks available. I had an apple and a bag of Honey Cashews from the new Royal Farms that just opened. They kind of tasted like Cracker Jacks.

At home was a late dinner consisting of an Amy's burrito.

I have been wanting to try these for a long time and finally bought one on sale. It was a little bit of a let down. It was good, but I was expecting more of a contrast in flavors. I would probably still buy them again.

This morning was a little bit of a change up. I had a mini cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese and an Oikos with ambrosia blend trail mix.

I feel like I'm not going to stay full for very long, though. I need to go grocery shopping today and hopefully I can fit everything in our fridge since my roommates have it pretty full right now. I'm going to try to de-stress, but that can be hard for me sometimes. I just hope that I can get through this week without too many bumps.
