RIP Coffee Addiction

Current Coffee :: Starbucks Christmas Blend

It has been almost 3 months since Christmas but I absolutely LOVE Starbucks Christmas blend. I bought it whole bean and grind it fresh at the beginning of the week in my Magic Bullet (I'm not sure if a Magic Bullet is even allowed in the dorms, but hey, I'm a rebel ;) )

The Christmas Blend has a slightly spicy taste along with a nuttiness which reminds me exactly of Christmas, without being overpowering.

About a month ago I went to the doctor and found out some HORRIBLE news.

I have to cut back on coffee!!!!!!!!!!

I about cried right there in the office but I held it together until after I left. I have fibrocystic breast disease (which sounds 10 times more scary than it is haha) but I have to cut out as much caffeine as possible. :(

So I decided to drink only one cup a day... I decided to give up all but one cup of coffee for Lent to help me along the way.

It's been an interesting journey going from 3 cups a day to 1. I have a much easier time sleeping at night which is a HUGE HUGE plus. However I find myself downing 5 Hour Energy shots when it comes to my long study nights.


Btw, I don't just drink coffee! I drink tea too! (all the time actually!)
That's why I'm completely in love with this giveaway!
Check it out! She's giving away a ton of Tazo teas and a french press!!!!!

Fresh Start

It has been months since I have posted. Since my last post I have been back at school for almost 2 semesters, become treasurer of my sorority, gotten an amazing boyfriend, and also gained weight.

This is the heaviest I have been in a long time and I need some serious butt kicking to get back on track.

This picture was taken during my first month of Freshman year of college. [no clue about my exact weight]

This was taken the summer after Freshman year... I have pretty much maintained this weight for a long time [145]. Side note: short hair = a big NO NO for my face.

This picture [and the next] were taken last week during spring break.

Current Weight: 147
Goal Weight: 130-135

I know I will have to make a lot of changes in what I eat and my level of exercise. Changing what I eat is going to be difficult while living on campus and being tied down to a campus meal plan along but I will figure it out!

I've missed blog world!! I hope starting up with this again will help me loose the weight and maintain a healthier life. This isn't just weight loss for me, I want to live a healthier, more active life.
