These past few weeks I've been really anxious because most colleges I applied to come out with their decisions mid-March. I haven't been sleeping very well because I'm so nervous/panicked/excited. It's been quite the fun emotional ride over here in my house! Anyway, I really am trying not to psych myself out too much because everything is out of my hands. And I know that in the end I am going to end up somewhere I love!
The past few days especially I've been trying to focus on eating well and exercising for my mental health, hah. It's true, though! I always feel much better when I'm treating my body well no matter how much other stress I'm under.

Lunch: a big salad with romaine, mushrooms, turkey, and a semi-homemade dressing (I whisked 3 tbsp of TJ's white bean and basil hummus with ~2-3 tbsp almond milk until smooth).
I also had a honeycrisp apple (LOVE!), a chocolate peanut butter Odwalla bar, and some unpictured baby carrots.
- 1 1/2 scoops vanilla protein powder
- 2 1/2 cups fresh spinach
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
- 1 cup vanilla almond milk
- 2 Tbsp lime juice
Dinner was definitely a good one! I usually just steam my veggies because it's quicker and usually I'm under a time crunch, but this time I decided to try roasting my veggies. SUCH a good choice! I simply chopped a head of cauliflower, sprayed a pan with olive oil spray, seasoned with salt & peppa, added a little more olive oil for good measure, and roasted at 400 for ~25ish minutes.
Dessert was a new-to-me cereal that is now officially my favorite - Nature's Path Crunchy Maple Sunrise. This cereal has lots of different grains and a wonderful maple flavor! It's a tiny bit too sweet so I mixed it with some puffed corn and it was perfect. And I discovered after I ate some that this cereal is gluten-free, so to all my g-free peeps: go get this cereal now. I promise it's amazing!
Today was definitely packed with lots of veggies and fruit. Three cheers for eating well when stressed out!
Here's to hoping for a good night's sleep tonight!
