Fashion Friday {Fair Week}

It looks like Fashion Friday is making an appearance! It’s been quite awhile since I shared any outfits (mostly because I wear running clothes everyday) but I did dress up last week for the fair!

WIAW – Getting better

Posting 3 days in a row? I must have some free time, lol! It has been quite awhile since I took part in a WIAW… I’ve missed it!

This is Sunday’s eats. Well.. dinner at least! I didn’t take any other pictures 😉

First: Church! My church just got a new priest and so far I really like him. I think he’ll really help the church!

shirt: Topshop

maxi skirt: Kohls

I am so happy I bought this maxi skirt. I was really unsure if I’d get the guts to wear it, but I love it! It was soo comfy.

hahahahahah!

The rest of the day was pretty chill. (I had run a half marathon the day before!) Then Mom and I headed over to my aunt’s house for dinner – chicken on the grill. I don’t really eat plain chicken so I had a bowl of cereal right before and wasn’t planning on eating there. When we got there I saw corn… and the chicken actually looked kind of good. I had eaten less than an hour before and it’s totally not in my normal. It’s like I’m scared of eating meals too close together.. but I ate there too!

I’m struggling right now with only eating when I’m hungry. I’m trying to eat 4 or 5 small meals rather than 3 big meals a day.  It’s really big to me that I put aside that I had just ate and ate another meal! I know it bothers my family when we go to family dinners and I don’t eat there because it didn’t work in my “schedule”. And then I went back for a second plate!

And then my aunt brought out these…

I could have easily said no and not had any ice cream. But you know what, it sounded good, and I wasn’t going to deprive myself of it just because I hadn’t mentally scheduled it earlier! I’m getting a lot better with that. Months ago, I would have every meal planned 3 days ahead. I’m kind of liking not even knowing what my next meal will be. Don’t get me wrong, I would never starve myself or do any harm to my body. Sometimes I just feel like if I’m not careful of what I eat then I’ll end up back in my old body. I have to think of all the other changes I’ve made though, like exercising and just being more active.

Then we had a girls’ night with pedicures 😀

Whew! I wasn’t planning on getting that wordy but it felt good to get out. I really think that I’m coming to a peace with my body. I love eating and am not going to worry about it. I think it’s okay that I have a huge appetite – doesn’t running burn tons of calories? 😉

And a picture of Cleo just for good measure 😀

Hope everyone’s doing great! 

Fashion Friday {5/28-5/31} + some honesty

Long time no see! I didn’t participate in WIAW first because I didn’t take one picture the whole day and two I’m not putting blogging first thing in my life. It was getting to be more of a habit, not a hobby, and I don’t want to become obsessed with it. I know, summer normally equals more blog time.. but I am so busy. I’m only going to post if I have something to say or did something awesome. I’m not going to post just  for the sake of posting. I’m gonna enjoy my summer! I will definitely keep reading blogs though. I love reading about your lives! 😀

How is it June tomorrow?! May seriously flew by! I didn’t have school on Monday which resulted in running shorts and a tshirt.

And there you have it! I don’t know if I’ll continue Fashion Friday during the summer.. since I wear running clothes everyday. Maybe here and there I’ll share a cute outfit. I’m just so excited to be done with middle school!

Later tonight is my basketball team party then tomorrow I’m heading down to Green Bay for my brother’s birthday. It’s gonna be a really fun weekend! I’ll (most likely) see you on Monday 😉

Have a wonderful weekend! 

Also, be sure to check out Foodie Pen Pals Reveal Day!  I didn’t participate this month, but I had a great experience in March. See ya later!

Busy girl

First of all, a huge marvelous thank you to our veterans. America wouldn’t be where we are today without you!

I had a pretty packed weekend. Allll day Saturday was spent at a softball tournament. First game at 8:30, last game at 6. It was a long day. We ended up taking second place. We really sucked in the morning but as the day went on we pulled it together! Being together the whole day really helped us bond as a team. That really helps!

I did eat some yummy food that day and I didn’t even stress about it. Woohoo!

1. Breakfast- waffle with pb, Greek yogurt, and banana

2. Monkey tail! Frozen chocolate covered banana

3. Lunch- chicken pesto pita

4. Lunch dessert- banana snickers scone!

5. Dinner- massive turkey sub

6. Dessert- ice cream sundae! Strawberries and butterscotch. 😉

Sunday was a pretty relaxing day. Went to a grad party with marvelous food. I even dressed up a lil’ 😉

I also introduced some of my friends to Geocaching! They thought it was the coolest thing ever. If you haven’t tried it yet, please do! It’s so fun!

Today… something kind of big happened. More about it soon 😀

What was the best thing about your weekend? Have you went to any grad parties?

It doesn’t feel like Monday. Long weekends mess me up! 😉 6 more days of school!!

Fashion Friday {5/20-5/24}

This week just flew by! I am counting down the days left of school… 6! So excited!

How are you spending your long weekend? Relaxing? Work?

Whatever you do, enjoy it! 😀

I am loving spring outfits!

So, I had a track meet yesterday. To sum it up, I did pretty good. My first event was shot put which I threw 20’11”. Considering we had to throw the guys ball, it’s not bad. Then I had to wait for about 2 hours for my next events. 800 was first. I didn’t break the school record, but I did win in 2:45. My heart seriously felt weird after this one. I think it’s because I’m used to running long distances and not sprints! I had an event’s break, then I ran the 2400. I wasn’t going to go super hard since I just ran and to save myself for the half marathon on Sunday(!). Somehow I ended up winning though, in 9:38! And even better, I felt like I could’ve kept going at that pace. Score! Right after that I ran to the discus where I threw 50’something. Hey, it was my first time doing it! This was such a long meet. After a Subway stop (where I tried avocado on my sub- I like it without better!) and an hour’s drive home, I hit.the.sack. I slept so good last night. Now I’m taking it easy today and tomorrow because my first half marathon is on Sunday! 

I’m getting new shoes this weekend. Any suggestions? Please help! 

Any tips for a first half marathon?!

Have a super weekend! 😀

Tomorrow is the big day. It’s the 5k. That I organized. Oh I just really hope the weather holds out! It rained today! I’ll write a whole recap tomorrow, don’t worry 😉 I think it’s gonna go really well.

Any races coming up for you?

The half is next weekend! Ahh!

Fashion Friday {4/29-5/3} + a big step!

This shirt is very significant. I bought it last year. But I refused to wear it because I looked fat. (I wasn’t fat, but the shirt was not very flattering). When I tried it on…  it looked good. It just showed how much I’ve changed from last year.

I was supposed to have my first track meet today but it was cancelled but I still wore my uniform to school anyway. First time I’ve worn sweatpants in quiiite awhile.

Something big happened after school.

I really like this picture

I bought a bike!

I’ve been using my cheap old bike for so long and I needed a new one so bad. I’ve looked before but I am the worst decision maker ever and couldn’t decide to save my life. Too much money? Ugly? Uncomfortable?  But I just said whatever and bought it! That was a really big step. I let change happen. And it has a super cute design on the spine!

I have a busy weekend ahead. Birthday party tonight, big Geocaching event tomorrow, 11 miles (longest I’ve ever done) on Sunday! If I make it you’ll hear a recap 🙂

Do you bike ride? Have a hard time making decisions?

Fashion Friday [4/22-4/26] + a few extras

Is it seriously Friday? This week just flew by! I’ve got a school dance and then I’m sleeping at a friend’s tonight. I’m forcing myself to be more social since I would happily sit in my living room this whole weekend 🙂 I’m looking forward to it though! My mom has been irking me lately. I need to get out of the house!

About my mom. I think I’ve been relying on her too much. We haven’t talked much the past couple of days, but I’m actually really happy. At school, practice, by myself. I feel really good. Maybe I just needed a break from her!

I’m also not worrying about food as much. We didn’t make dinner together, we just ate whatever we wanted (how we used to be). I feel like I listened to my body and it wanted carbs. So I had pasta the past two nights in a row!

Whole wheat rotini with marinara, spinach, chicken, and an egg. I saw the egg on Sunnie‘s page and I’ve wanted to try it since. It adds so much flavor!

Whole wheat penne with broccoli, chicken, and alfredo. Definitely added more sauce after this was taken.

Race planning is going amazing! I am a super busy girl. I had no idea it would take off like this. We’ve got radio stations, newspapers, Facebook, everyone is getting invovled! Check out the flyer below 🙂

Have a fantastic weekend!

Fashion Friday

Hey everyone! Happy Friday!

friday3

I’m gonna start something new. Instead of doing a post for every outfit, I’m just gonna post all my week’s in one post! I figure that won’t get as obnoxious as a post everyday 😉

I am just so excited for the weather to get warmer and not wear jeans! I want shorts weather! Sadly, it doesn’t look like that’s coming soon. It’s snowing right now. Go away!!

I get most of my clothes from Kohls. (Lauren Conrad, Mudd, Candies, JLo, Elle) Love that store. Of course, as soon as I get home, the sweatpants go on 😉

I made a Minougirl Instagram and Twitter! Check them out.

The rest of this weekend isn’t too packed. Birthday party tonight, car wash (weather permitting!) on Saturday, 10 miles on Sunday- the most I’ve ever run! Oh my gosh… the half marathon is a month fromtoday!!

So what do we think? Yes to Fashion Friday?

Have a super weekend!
