Day 380: Monday

So no, it’s not my birthday, but today I did realize that I was going to be 25 in January. It terrified the crap out of me. Am I going to have a quarter life crisis like John Mayer? It just kind of hit me like a ton of bricks. It was just a weird realization to have. Even though it was a sad realization, it was not a bleak realization like it was two years ago. In my old life, the word “if” was a caveat. I would think about 40 years down the road and think “if I’m still able to walk.” “If I’m even still alive.” Depressing thoughts like that about if I can make it to 62. My grandma is 94 so I have the genetic make up to live that old, so why I wouldn’t make it that far in life it would be my own undoing, me abusing my body with food and lack of exercise.

The difference between then and now is that I love myself now enough to not to die for some disease that would be cured by diet and exercise. I know a lot of people say it, but I really was watching my life go by. I let it go by by not passing up on the junk food and other crap I was putting in my body. If you feel like I did back then, really evaluate where your life is going and do something about it. You got this!

Breakfast: I just had some grape nuts and granola. Deliciousness.

Lunch: I really need to bring my own lunch again. Today I bought a pizza lunchable from the Circle K across campus. It was not as good as I remember, but it was still okay I guess. Like I said, I need to bring my own lunch again.

Snacks: When I got home, I had some sunflower seeds and a Fiber One bar that was flippin’ awesome. I think the key to my success last week was not grazing through out the week and I need to work on that again this week.




Dinner: Last week, we bought some sirloin at The Fresh Market so we finally cooked those babies up. They turned out really well! I cooked up two pounds so Megan split a pound and then I cooked the other one for fajitas tomorrow. I’m so stoked.

So like I said, I really need to work on my grazing keep it in check because at this point I don’t have enough points to eat that much. We will just see how it all goes. See ya tomorrow.

  1. Oh, friend, I completely understand this whole turning 25 business. My first good high school friend got married Saturday so I did a lot of reminiscing. Until around this time last year I was going through the motions, watching my life go by. I had taken a hiatus from school, was getting zero exercise and was just generally eating myself to death. Now I’m back in school and ready to face the future. Thanks for continuing to inspire me, yo!

  2. Nathan, Thanks so much for stopping by my new blog and giving me some encouragement. It really means a lot to me. In 45 minutes, I’ll be at the gym, and hopefully won’t tucker out as quickly as I did yesterday. I’m looking forward to making a positive post about it.

    Turning 25… wow that seems a long time ago! I’ll be 31 in January. Oddly enough, 25 was a bigger deal then 30 for me. 25 you can drive a rental car in California… hahaha. 30 you just realize you’re almost at the top of the hill. I did start setting goals for myself last year though- some I attained, some I didn’t, but I tried hard at all of them. I’d never done that before.

    Thanks again!

  3. It’s always tough for me to keep from grazing, especially since all we ever really have around the house IS grazing food. I’d much rather have a meal that satisfies me than to continue to rack up calories by grazing and grazing.

    And 25 isn’t that old. It’s just one more than 24, remember?
