I want to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. I want to get more confident being uncertain. I don’t want to shrink back just because something isn’t easy. I want to push back, and make more room in the area between I can’t and I can.Kristin Armstrong (via yourhatemademe)
Absolutely killed my workout today after being out for two weeks. Both my RDLs and squats were weaker than before (120 and 115 respectively) but that’s to be expected. It felt so good to get back in, and I am looking forward to getting stronger :D
Update: I just made an egg, avo, tomato sandwich and my stomach feels like it is imploding on itself.
I haven’t eaten “solid” food since Monday night. The last thing I consumed with caloric value was coconut water, which I chugged in order to finish it by last night at midnight. I know I need to eat but I don’t think I can. Fuck all these chemicals that are preventing me from eating.
If there is anything I’ve learned this semester, it is to take each day as it comes to you. Don’t let the shit of tomorrow affect the way you live today. Recognize it is going to happen, plan it into your schedule, then forget about it and go on being happy. It isn’t worth it.

I just are an entire batch of chickpea cookie dough dip because 1) I can finally eat legumes again 2) I was hungry 3) It’s delicious 4) I finally felt okay enough to lift today 5) I have to follow a clear liquids diet all Tuesday and then fast from midnight until 5:00pm Wednesday and I’m worried about losing my gainz (and the hunger pains)

I am such a bio major. I get excited over complicated crosses and pedigrees. Oh boy, oh boy!
