I didn’t know

19 Oct

I didn’t know what busy was until I came to college.

I know I have said this in pretty much every post since I’ve started this semester, but it just keeps getting more and more true, haha. For the sake of going easy on my brain, let’s sum up things in bullet points:

  • This week I started training at my new job. I now have an official title as a “fitness tech.” Now they are stuck with me because I have my very own name tag and employee cubby, mwahaha!

NewImage<—- me blogging and lifting: multitasking at it’s finest, eh?


  • I crammed for and completed two major exams…and it’s only Tuesday.


  • I got approved for my first apartment for next semester!!!


okay, so maybe it isn’t that swanky, but it’s still pretty nice and I am in love with it! I have a countdown for my move-in date going on my computer as we speak. I can’t wait!!!! I don’t regret going the dorm route this semester because it’s been a good experience for me to have, but it’s just not something that I personally want to do for any longer amount of time. There are definitely cons to this way of living, so I am very fortunate that I am able to move forward with an apartment.

  • The weather has been freezing, so I’ve been drinking/eating my weight in hot teas and soup from the cafeteria



  • Cam, from one of my favorite shows: Modern Family was in my town yesterday and made an appearance here on campus. I die. He ROCKS.




I’ve still been eating some pretty good stuff, but I’ll admit I’m really starting to miss having a full kitchen. But now that my apartment is “official” it makes it easier to stick it out a little while longer. Plus, it makes going home that much more of a treat!

Eats as of late:

pumpkin egg white oats with Trutein chocolate peanut butter cup “frosting” (just mixed with almond milk!) and sliced almonds

IMG 2468

Salad bar

IMG 2477

sprouted grain toast with peanut butter and banana = good study fuel

IMG 2475

I tried out some miracle noodles recently! Yeah, they look like worms. Yeah, I freaked out my roommate. Yeah, I don’t really care because they were good! This was an easy dorm room meal that I paired with a salmon pouch, steamed veggies, a dollop of cottage cheese, and Annie’s honey mustard dressing. Plus some toast and almond butter!

IMG 2478

another new-to-me product, Seeds Of Change indian rice blend (with chickpeas and mung beans)

IMG 2479

along with a tuna pouch and veggies. Seeds of Change has awesome products! This one was no exception.

IMG 2476

choco-pumpkin protein pudding with raw cacao nibs and peanut butter: 1 scoop protein powder, 1/4 cup pumpkin, 1/4 cup greek yogurt, 1 tbsp dark chocolate cocoa powder, almond milk to mix it up.

Q’s for today:

Have you ever met a celebrity? Cam was my first!

Favorite tea kind/brand? During the day, it’s been all about my old stand-by: Lipton Green Tea. At night I’ve been loving Yogi’s relaxed mind!

See you all later!

    If you like vanilla flavored things, then I recommend Bigelow French Vanilla tea – I also think they have Caramel Vanilla, which was my fav, but I have a hard time finding it at my grocery store. Seriously though, best tea ever!!

    hey girlfriend!! so good to hear that life is busy in college! thats what its all about! I learned so much about multitastking and how to prioritize in college…such great skills and as the time goes on you will get so much better at balancing everything!

    thats so great about the new apt! I cant wait to hear about it! Your eats as always are so well balanced and creative for a college student, you are certainly giving some others out there some great ideas and you just prove it IS possible to eat healthy in the dorms!

  20. dancefitnesshealthnut October 21, 2011 at 3:26 am #

    Hey there! I was just wondering… is living in the dorms worth it? I’m trying to debate living on campus or not? A lot of people were telling me to live in the dorms, but I don’t know! Have any opinion on it? Much appreciated thanks!

    • Sweetly Fit October 22, 2011 at 10:46 pm #

      It is a good way to make friends in a new place and definitely a good thing to experience. It’s a personal decision though, everyone is different!

  21. Allison's Delicious Life October 21, 2011 at 10:38 pm #

    Those are mouth-watering foods, healthy and delicious. With those pictures, it shows that healthy foods doesn`t need to be boring and tasteless. It needs a creative mind to come up with an appetizing menu.
