Move in and first meal

So I'm officially in my new apartment and loving it so far!  I still have a long way to go as far as decorating and organizing my room but its coming along nicely.  Today after my parents left there was a pool party/potluck that some other first years in my program organized. By the way I'm going to school for physical therapy and have orientation tomorrow!  I was pretty nervous about it being a pool party because I didn't want to have to get in my bathing suit in front of a bunch of people I don't know yet.  Although I've lost a pretty good amount of weight so far and see some changes, I still don't feel comfortable presenting myself to the people I'm gonna be spending the next 3 years with in a bathing suit.  Luckily for me, it started raining right about the time the party was supposed to start hahahaah. So everyone quickly changed plans and we had an indoor meet and greet instead.  It was fun and everyone was really nice so I'm excited to get started.

When I was home for summer, my mom cooked pretty much all my dinners so now I have to get back in the habit of cooking.  I know keeping up my healthy cooking will be harder when school starts but I had a pretty good start tonight.  I made tilapia with sugar snap peas and a sweet was yummy :). I also got my workout in today before dinner.  A great part about being back at school is the amazing gym that UF has!! There are sooo many different types of cardio machines and the machines are really high tech.  Each cardio machine has an individual tv on it and you can connect your ipod to the machine and pick songs from the touch screen.  Some machines even have little fans you can turn on!  You can also set the screen to look like you are biking or running through a city or other setting. Overall its the best and I'm excited to take full use of it.

Not sure how weigh in is gonna go this week since I've been kinda off diet during the move in but I'm gonna try and be really on track until thursday..which will now be my weigh in day instead of wednesday due to my class schedule.

Have a good week!


  1. I used to love the machines with built in fans :)
    Good luck at orientation!

  2. OMG I miss Tilapia so much! I used to have it at least twice a week and my host kids loved it (I was an au pair). I cannot get it here though :S

    Anyways congrats on the moving and good luck!
