Just a Quickie ;)

Hi, ladies! Thanks for the good wishes for my exams. I’ve got one down—the advertising midterm—and one to go tomorrow. I’m so ready for spring break!
I just wanted to give y’all a quick update on what’s happening in my life (besides studying, duh!) Today, I wore a skirt with no tights for the first time in probably 5 months! Yes, it was warm enough for my legs to go naked (lol) and I really enjoyed it. I’m usually more self-conscious in shorts than miniskirts for some reason, but I’m planning on wearing my favorite pair tomorrow—we’ll see how that goes!
I’ve been dealing with a sore foot for the past week. I’m pretty sure it was because I was running in shoes that didn’t fit well, and I was overexerting myself when I first noticed the foot pain. It’s in the top of my left foot, but today it’s started to feel a little better. I decided to not run or do any cardio (besides walking to class) for a while. I felt a little guilty about that decision at first, but I don’t want to risk permanently injuring myself because I over-exercised. And it wasn’t worth the pain I was experiencing every time I walked—and I walk a lot!
I haven’t had too many exciting eats lately, besides the last of my Pure bars which I’m loving more and more! Definitely gonna have to get more of those when I get home for spring break. Oh, and I had one of my favorite things at dinner tonight—this vegan black bean lime soup. It’s not really soup, it’s super-thick and basically just beans, but it’s really yummy and it’s got 10 grams of protein and 14 grams of fiber in 1/2 a serving! Even though I am definitely no vegan (still love my seafood and Greek yogurt), I do enjoy sometimes eating vegan meals or snacks. They can be really delicious!
Oh the things you can buy at Whole Foods!
Spring break is just around the corner! I’m loving the warm weather and I’m hoping it lasts so I can play tennis with my dad, go bike riding, tan on my deck and enjoy family dinners outside.
Q’s: What’s your favorite warm weather outfit? Do you like to eat vegan things even if you aren’t vegan?


  1. I remember how much I looked forward to spring breaks when I was in college (didn't have them in grad school)!

    My favorite outfit would be hippie type of dresses, summer dresses, and cute blue jean capri with tank tops.

    Yes, I do enjoy eating vegan things--My sister is a vegeterian. We go to this really good vegeterian place in the city and I try different dishes ranging from plain vegeterian to vegan type of meals. It's pretty good....but I don't see myself becoming a vegan/vegeterian due to my ED though. :)

  2. PS: good luck on your exams ;)

  3. Whoo, go you for rocking that skirt. I know for some people showing their bodies is a HUGE challenge, and its awesome that you were able to wear it. And Ash, I'm proud of you for laying off the work-outs. You are EXACTLY right. Permanent injury tomorrow is not worth a little exercise today.

    Surprisingly, even in my messed up, ED-ed mind, I loved wearing skimpy summer clothing. Short shorts and camis were my favorites. I loved showing off my legs at all times, and literally most of my shorts go right below my butt. It's not really in an innapropriate, too-revealing way (I hope) just in a really light, summery-clothing kind of way. Oh, and I LOVE flowy spaghetti-strap dresses too!
    Good luck on this test!

  4. I hope you're foot feels better. :/ But, definintely let you're body heal before pushing it.

    I love that you wore a skirt! I get a little self-conscious in shorts too because I have a birthmark on my upper thigh, right under my butt. I love skirts, though, and dresses - I literally wore them everyday when I was younger. :)

    Good luck with everything and have a wonderful week!

  5. Good luck on your test! That soup looks so yummy.
    Good for you to wear a skirt and show off your body!
    Thanks so much for your supportive comments, they mean so so much.
    Hopefully I'll be able to leave a better comment soon.

  6. Hey girl!
    I'm so happy to have just come across your blog! I can relate to your story so much. I'm a sophomore in college and my ed began around my freshman/sophomore year of high school too. I'm so glad to see you're doing well!

    Good luck on those exams! Isn't spring break great?? : )
