WTHM: Week 1

For the first week of the Working Towards a Healthier Me series, I have decided that I will post this week’s plans/ goals to hold myself some what accountable and hopefully make it more realistic for me to accomplish by sharing.

I will report my progress at the end of the week!

Exercise Routine:


I will be trying this routine I found on Pinterest for the week. I may make changes to certain exercises but I will be following this day plan and will write a detailed post on the reps and duration along with how it worked for me at the end of the week.

Food Plan:

I am currently in the middle of renovating my house so I do not have access to a stove. Therefore the plan for this week is to just be as healthy as possible while still ordering things I want. So if I get a burger, I will make sure to substitute my fries with a salad or fruit or something. If I can I will try to make the two recipes pictured below because they can be made in my microwave oven. Also, I will be working in at least 24 oz of water a day (about two deer park bottles).

Things I Want to Accomplish:

I hope to finish my Python coding class and finish the Spanish course on Duolingo.


Installment 1: Pre-College Jitters

For some reason, I have this notion in my head that everyone is supposed to reinvent themselves for college. I range from moments of being so excited and hyped up to go to moments of incredible fear causing me to want to curl up in my bed and never leave my room. Luckily the moments of excitement out-number the moments of fear.

I’ve decided that sense this is a pivotal moment in my life and others I would share some of my fears and excitements and hope others post their own as we weather out this storm together.

(even number = excitements, odd numbers = fears)

  1. One huge shared bathroom:

I am dead-ass terrified of having to share a bathroom. Why? Because 1. people can be disgusting, 2. No baths, 3. I refuse to sit my ass on a toilet seat that is not my own, 4. The trek back to my room during the winter months will prob be freezing.

2. Moving to Boston

While I am going to miss my hometown, I am excited to live in a city where the public transportation doesn’t suck and I can actually walk places! All the times I have visited Boston, it’s been easy to get around and I just love the feel of the city overall.

3. Freshman 15

Even though I try not to be I can be a little vain and I am relatively happy with the condition of my body right now. That said, I have always bee naturally thin and rarely work out and love to eat so I’m a little nervous of what might happen if I don’t get an exercise regime and eat well.

4. Choosing courses and learning things I’m actually interested about

After 7 years of being bored out of my mind ┬áin history courses I’m so excited to finally start taking courses that relate to my major and choosing other things I just want to learn about to fill my other requirements.

5. Maintaining contact with high school friends

I suck at keeping in touch with people so I’m gonna need to work on that.

6. Sleeping past 8 everyday (no classes before 10:30 wohoo!!!)

Like, no one understands how hype I am about this. I have never in my life imagined getting to wake up after 8 every day. I am so so so happy.

Please share if you have any of these same fears and/ or excitements as well as your own!! Let’s get through this together! *sings high school musical*
