Good morning! I’m typing this from my new apartment (I think you’d call it a MIL apartment attached to a house where 5 other girls live) after a 2 mile run this morning. It’s a good thing that I have a few more weeks before my half marathon because I am definitely going to need to spend some time training in this new elevation with all of these hills (although I purposely chose a course that is mostly downhill so it shouldn’t be too bad).
I left Chicago last Tuesday morning, spent a few days in Washington, drove to Montana to see a friend on Saturday, and then finished up my drive yesterday, ending up in Provo. Classes start in 2 hours and I desperately need to make a trip to Wal-mart because last night I slept on my bath towels with my kitchen apron acting as a pillowcase (I’m really glad I brought a pillow!) and a fleece blanket from my car as my cover (thought I didn’t need it much because this room is much too hot for my sleeping preferences).
During that time I ate horribly, and I am really feeling the effects of all of the refined carbs and sugars I ate, especially on the drive down. All of that’s in the past though, because I’m starting Whole 30 today! My fridge and cupboards are stocked with exclusively Whole30 approved products, and once I’m done typing this I’m going to go borrow a pot from my new roommates so I can hard boil some eggs for my lunch. I know I’m going to be missing some things a week from now, but early this week will be a celebration as I flush all of my previous poor choices out of my system.
Time to shower and assemble my lunch and make my way up to campus for my first day of class. I’d love to hear how things are going for you!
