Yesterday I went up to Gainesville to move out of my undergrad college apartment. I am spending the summer at home but the move out date is July 31st so me and my mom picked this weekend to go finish getting my stuff out of there. My new apartment move in date is not until August 18th so moving my things has been a very complicated venture. The day involved lugging my heavy items up and down the stairs in the very hot summer heat so I was definitely sweating and getting a little exercise haha!
We came back home today but throughout my overnight trip I think I made pretty good food choices. When we arrived at lunch time we went to pita pit which is pretty much the pita version of subway.
You can get any pita as a salad so I had chicken on a salad filled with lots of different veggie toppings. Then for dinner we went to a new restaurant and the food was sooooo good! I got a salad but it had so many great toppings on it such as corn, beans, salsa, and avocado. It was topped with a huge piece of chicken with chimichurri sauce that tasted great! I only ate about half the salad but I was completely satisfied because it was very large. I saved the second half and had it for lunch today. There were so many great juices in that salad that I barely even had to use any of my light dressing.
The best part of the trip was seeing some of my friends that I haven't seen since graduation in May. They all haven't seen me since losing weight and they all said that I looked really good. It was so good to hear that others really do see the progress I'm making. It gives me a boost to want to continue on further to impress everyone when I go back up to school in the fall.
Anyways here are a couple photos of me so you can kinda see the person behind the blog :)
