omg I really just want to be a nutritionist. Like, I want to quit going to school where I go right now and start working towards a degree in nutrition. Like, thinking about it makes me excited! :)
So I think I might be changing my major…
I am currently majoring in English with a minor in art.
I was originally going into the education program to become High school English teacher but I realized that wasn’t what I wanted to do. I have always wanted to major in English and I always wanted to be a writer but lately I just hate school and my major so much It isn’t want I want to do at all.
I want to be a nutritionist. I want to be a nutritionist and go in to nutritional sciences, which, is COMPLETELY different from English classes and reading Shakespeare lol.
What I want to do is finish out my English degree and then get my masters in Nutritional sciences. But, in order to get into the program I need to take physiology and biochemistry at a certified university as a perquisite to getting into the program. The only problem is, these classes have perquisites, and the perquisites have perquisites lol. So, If this is something I want to do I have to start NOW!
Hopefully I won’t have to change my major. I hope I can graduate with english and still get into the program to be an nutritionist so that all my hard work these last couple of years aren’t wasted. But I need to go talk to an advisor at both my school and the school that offers the nutrition program.
In the mean time, I am going over to the community college down the street from me to sign up for general chemistry this summer so that I can get started on all of this. I know it is kind of impulsive but I really want to be prepared!
Omg guys I’m excited! And I’m nervous! And I’m annoyed that I didn’t think of doing this before!!!!!!
So I woke up this morning and I was kind of sore from the gym yesterday. My arms are a little achy and so are my abs. I am also just getting over my period but I REALLY wanted to get on the scale. Today has been a week since I started eating vegan-style. It’s also been about 2 weeks since I gave up ALL processed food.
The scale gives me a lot of anxiety but I really wanted to see how my body has been reacting to my new “diet.” (Diet as in how I’m choosing to eat, not diet as in a plan I have to stick to).
Anyways It has been about a month since I have gotten on the scale so I went ahead and just went on. I lost a pound and a half and am down to 209.1!
This probably doesn’t seem all that significant but I am really excited because I was super nervous that the scale wouldn’t have moved because my pcos tends to be cruel that way :/ Also with sore muscles and water weight from my period just ending I wasn’t sure. So since it says I lost a pound and half with these factors, I’m hoping in the next week or so it will be down a little bit more :)
My highest weight was somewhere around 270. I’m not sure exactly just how high but it was right up around there. My highest known weight was 261 (which was recorded by my doctor. I was so heavy I didn’t even go on the scale myself). My starting weight on this journey was 257 (I had lost some weight on weight watchers previously). But this last year and a half has been the most successful year and a half I have ever had in terms of weight loss. For the first time in my life I am losing weight the healthy way and keeping it off : ) I have had a few bumps in the road along the way but I am trying my best every day.
Now, I am in the final countdown towards FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY being out of the 200’s!!!!!!!! I CAN NOT EVEN WAIT!!!!!!! :)
Post work out snack:
Dinner: *** dinner is always weird for me because I usually either have to eat before work around 3 or after work later at night. Tonight I got out fairly early so I ate around 8 pm. I didn’t want a whole meal but I felt like I needed protein and was hungry***
Dinner/ “dessert” *** I had a protein filled shake with my “dinner” but it was sweet and tasted like a milkshake :) ***

Other than the honey everything about today was vegan :) I was going to have some of the whole wheat pasta salad that my mom made but there was a lot of cheese in it and I honestly feel so much better not eating dairy :)
Tomorrow night I might end up going out to eat with my dad and my sister where I work. I think I have mentioned before that I work at a steakhouse (hypocritical I know) but If I go I think I will have a salad with no croutons (they are baked in butter) and no cheese. I will probably add almonds to my salad. And I think I might have some Ahi tuna on my salad. The Ahi tuna where I work is light and healthy and I know how they cook it. I know that isn’t vegan but If I can go a whole week where the only “non vegan” foods I eat are
Then I think I am doing pretty good. This is a perfect example of how I want to eat. Vegan most of the time.
I also want the non vegan foods I eat to be mainly honey or fish occasionally. I think my body feels a lot better not eating dairy!!!!
