Thinking Out Loud ; 5/15

Happy Thursday everyone!  😀

Seeing as both Amanda and I have a strong dislike towards intros, I will keep this short and sweet and get straight into the thoughts. Shall we?


1. I am happy to report that I took my final last exam yesterday! Man.. those three and a half hours were brutal. I am happy to say that I think I did pretty good on it though! I had peppermints to keep me calm throughout the test, I took my deep breaths, and I really focused in on the work. AP has really kicked my booty, but I can say that I ended up being the victor in the end. 😉

2. In the past week since moving, I have had Sonic twice. I’m saying this because ever since my E.D. days, I haven’t stepped foot in there. With the stress of moving and school, I just had to get something quick and wanted to (I guess you could say) ‘conquer’ another food fear. I haven’t gone all out extreme, but the grilled chicken sandwich with fries is good enough for me. One day I will try the shakes.. one day.


3. I have also put exercising on the back burner these past few days as well. I thought that exercise on top of already stressing about studying for school would make things much harder on myself, so I decided I would go a few days without it. My mental being is really thanking me for that.

4. Ever since Amanda brought back the facts, I have been scrolling through @Uberfacts on Twitter endlessly. Some of the stuff on there is crazy..

5. Along with bananas, I cannot eat blueberries on their own. I have to have them in either a smoothie or oatmeal. I tried having plain blueberries yesterday while studying, and was I feeling some serious stomach cramps. Oy vey..


6. Sleep is a VERY glorious thing. I cannot emphasize it enough on how much I love sleep.

7. I’m craving summer pretty much all of the time now. I cannot wait for all of the family time, friends time, hikes, swimming, smoothies, fruit, doin’ my thang, etc. Who’s with me?! 😀 T-9 days!

8. I will finally be able to get baking this weekend in the kitchen! Everything in the house is set up and I have some idea flourishing in my head. It’s crazy how much of a break from baking can really spark your imagination. I’m ready to get the goods baking and my house smelling like wonderland.

9. A few more dresses are in order to be bought for summer. Primarily sundresses, but any will do. 😉

10. Oh! Christine! How I have been getting my hair so thick and shiny is from increasing my healthy fats intake primarily! I have been eating a lot more peanut butter and tuna lately. I’ve also been having avocado (but not as much). I have been aiming around 8 -9 hours of sleep a night. I don’t wash it everyday, because that strips away the natural oils. I haven’t applied to heat to it since last year. I think my increased blood circulation from working out has something to do with it as well. If I think of anything else, I’ll let you know! 🙂

I hope you have an amazing day! ❤

  1. I can definitely relate to needing to put exercise on the back burner sometimes. As wonderful as it is, it’s still an extra source of stress on our bodies that can sometimes do more harm and good. Also… your hair really is wonderful 🙂 I need to spend a little time coaxing some life into mine after the winter basically killed it. Woof.

  2. Regardless of how you do it, your hair is gorgeous! I feel like mine gets drier because I’m literally the worst when it comes to touching my hair. I play with it ALL the time and because of that, I need to wash it almost everyday so it doesn’t look oily haha.

    CONGRATS on finishing your exam! So happy for you 🙂

  3. My sister just finished a tough first year of college and put a lot of hard work into her exams, so I know how much of a relief it must be for you to have finished yours!
