The first week of my sophomore year is officially over and I would deem it a success! I am really excited about all of my classes.  I know I will have a lot of work to do, but I am excited to get into the good stuff! Speaking of good stuff...our new Rec Center opened on Tuesday! Needless to say I was there everyday I've been at school since it opened.
Me, Monica and Jenna (two of my suitemates) ready to take on the new fitness center!!

I've been doing the LiveFit trainer this week and it has been intense! The third week of phase 1 has really stepped it up and my body was feeling it.  The first two weeks I was able to do additional cardio on top of the weightifting, but this week it became a bit harder.  I came home Friday right after class for the holiday weekend and haven't had access to a gym, since I gave my PF membership while I am at school. I have decided I am just going to start over week three this week when I get back, and really step up my eating game.  I have not been doing awfully, except I have had some unnecessary ice cream since I have been home and tomorrow we've got some yummy desserts planned. After this weekend I need to get back on track.  Is anyone else on board with me?! Together we can work to defeat the gut, get lean and train mean!

Like I said before, I came home for the weekend.  It is a long weekend and it's perfect because it helps ease me into being at school and if I forgot anything I could just get it, like my broken microwave! Yesterday my dad, my brother Ben and I went to D.C. to the Nationals game, playing none other than our favorite Cardinals! And it was a great game! I don't think I have ever personally witnessed more homeruns in one MLB game. The Cardinals game out with the W and we couldn't have been more happy!
That's how close I was to Yadier Molina(for all you Cards fans)! Today I spent more time with my family and got to see one of my best friends Carly, at her school, Messiah!

I've been thinking about how I am going to blog about my meals for the semester. I think I will blog on Monday's making it known as My Meals Monday. At school I won't really be making many meals, but when I go home and make some meals I will most likely blog about those meals when they happen...like today!

Today I made a stir fry for my family.  It was a huge hit! How do I know? My brothers had seconds! It was even packed with veggies. I made the main dish with shrimp and vegetables then made chicken in a separate pan for my brothers. 
Look at all those yummy veggies!
I used terriakyi sauce in place of regular soy or Szechuan sauce.
My brothers loved the chicken terriakyi.
The finished product! Yumm!

Veggie-Shrimp Stirfry:
Serves 5
1/2 large white onion
Snap Peas
Mushrooms
Medium sized head of broccoli
1 can of water chestnuts
1 Red Pepper
1 Green Pepper
2 1/2-3 Cups uncooked brown rice
3 eggs
Olive Oil
Terriakyi Sauce
2 lbs. Shrimp

Cook the vegetables (really up to you how much you want of each vegetable) with some olive oil and terriakyi sauce until vegetables are almost fully cooked.  Then add shrimp and mix occasionally until shrimp is cooked.  While veggies are cooking get rice ready.  Once veggies are finished remove vegetables and leave some of the sauce to cook the rice in.  First I would cook the a little first to almost scramble them, then add rice in.  Stir in eggs until cooked, put in bowl and you are ready to serve!

I hope everyone enjoys your labor day festivities!
