Guess what?? I’m back at school. Like a normal student. I’m all better now, living at school, and taking a full load of classes again. I got sick 6 (?) weeks ago and now here I am again! New quarter, fresh start. I’m now trying to figure out a new workout schedule. I signed up for unlimited spin and yoga classes for the quarter, which I am excited for. I feel like I have so much freedom with my schedule now though!

Ok, let’s do an Easter recap. Breakfast was the best cinnamon toast: cinnamon twist bread with butter and cinnamon sugar. Plus an Easter egg of course! Ok, and there may have been some jelly beans involved…ImageImageMy sister came back for a little Easter egg hunt with her boyfriend. We found them all this year! And of course those plastic eggs make the best cat toys…Funny story, we found one like 3 months ago that the kitties must have kicked around…Last year was an interesting one with the eggs though. The plastic eggs with candy inside were hidden in a yard, and a squirrel grabbed one, carried it up a tree, and chewed through the plastic.

After a few pieces of candy, we headed out for a fancy brunch at a nearby hotel. It was a beautiful buffet. Now let me just warn you, I take my holiday buffets VERY seriously (especially Thanksgiving) and I usually want to try some of everything. The food was delicious and beautiful.ImageImageImageMy favorite things were the shrimp gnocchi and the warm bread pudding. Also pictured on the dessert plate is a fruit tart, random baby mousses, and a mystery cake believed to be mango green tea. Oh, and a baby eclair! Somehow I managed to get honey all over my food….I blame the cheese plate. The set up was so pretty. There was even an ice sculpture on a bunny!ImageImageImageImageImageThe rest of the afternoon was spent relaxing, napping, and watching TV. Dinner was low key and easy, artichokes, and macaroni and cheese from a box. Yumm healthy, right??ImageSome See’s eggs may have rounded out this meal….

Sigh. But today it is back to the healthy habits. I woke up still stuffed from yesterday. Is it possible to gain 10 pounds in one day? Haha. This morning I went to my abs class at home before going back to school. I ate a quick breakfast of my favorite mangos, and an Easter egg.ImageMy first class was at 10. My classes seem interesting this quarter, but I can already tell I am going to have a TON of reading to do. I have to retake Organic Chemistry since I dropped it last quarter when I got sick, so that should be funnn. Right now my schedule is very M/W/F heavy. I don’t have much Tuesday and Thursday. After I was all done with class for the day, I had planned to run, but that run turned into a nap. Eh, I need to listen to my body, and if it says sleep, that’s what I’ll need. I already know I am going to need way more sleep this quarter. 

Today was the return of dining hall food. 1 meal in and I’m already tired of it. There just aren’t very many options.ImageAt least the line for the grilled chicken was short. I also had some melon. Upon retuning to my room, I ate about a third of the banana with sunflower butter and am saving the remainder for tomorrow’s breakfast. And I didn’t have any yogurt today! GASP. Ok, off to figure out my workouts/start my homework. I may sneak in a run later today (it is still light out). Tomorrow’s workout is still TBA; I was planning on spin, but it doesn’t start until next week. Good night everyone!
