Fledgling Shadri Goes to Herbology Class


Dusk

Recommended Posts

I've been on a little bit of a Harry Potter kick lately. And by a little, I mean a LOT. Seriously. I have more pride for my house than I do for my actual real-life school. 

 

As some of you may know, I am a (very very very) proud Hufflepuff! I've done a Hufflepuff-themed challenge in the past, but I wanted to revisit it. I feel like maybe I didn't do it enough justice last time.

 

Hufflepuffs generally have a special knack for Herbology. I, unfortunately, do not. So this challenge, I'm going to spend some extra time in the Herbology greenhouses.

 

AKA: I'm gonna try and re-learn how to eat well and stay in my macros.

 

- Continue tracking food using MyFitnessPal

- DON'T SPEND ANY EXTRA MONEY ON FOOD

- It's okay to be hungry sometimes. You can wait until dinner, you silly badger. You don't have to go buy all the things the moment you get a rumbly in your tumbly.

 

Aside from that, I'm gonna hopefully be keeping up on my other activities that have become (mostly) habit by now, namely going to the gym and/or exercising two or three times a week. 

 

Week 1 of the challenge falls right on Final Exam week.

Week 2 should be fairly normal.

Week 3, I'll be on vacation visiting some family.

Week 4 is the first week of my PHYSICS RESEARCH INTERNSHIP.

 

This challenge is gonna be hella crazy.

 

Bring it on.

I was quoting Trufflehunter the Badger from Prince Caspian in an attempt to go meta on the Badger love. For anyone who wonders I am also 100% on team Hufflepuff.

Ohhh, ok. I was wondering if you were quoting something. Its been for fracking EVER since I've read those. I need to bump them up a little higher on my to-read list... :)

Day 0.2 - I forgot to track. AND I bought extra food at school (a breakfast burrito, cos I didn't bring enough post-workout food). But, most of what I ate was fairly healthy, at least. And it's still zero week anyway.

 

In other unrelated news, I just bought the special edition of the BBC Pride and Prejudice miniseries and I AM SO EXCITE. <3 <3 <3

 

Also, I am getting my hairs cut on Saturday!

 

And I only have 6 actual school days left!!!!

 

SO MANY EXCITING THINGS HAPPENING.

Ooh! Ooh! By BBC Miniseries, does that refer to the Colin Firth version? My mom watches those regularly, and while Elizabeth's mother's voice just about drives me up the walls (like nails on a chalkboard, they cast her so well) it is a very good adaptation I must admit. :D

Yeeeess it is the Colin Firth one :3 They're so brilliantly done. I've only read the first half of the book, but from what I can tell they did it pretty spot-on. (Plus Colin Firth is GORGEOUS.)

THIS.  I always go to the store and spend tons of money and then don't even make the stuff.  Simple is better.

 

Yep... it's difficult. I've been thinking it over, and I just don't think this whole "being an adult" thing is gonna work out. :P

It's been an age and a half since I read the book, but definitely remember being pleasantly surprised by how close they kept to the source material. Hehe, it isn't even my favorite story (or close to) and it's impossible not to be impressed by the BBC adaption. From the casting (Colin Firth is indeed gorgeous, wow, and then of course Elizabeth's parents are perfect, as is Catherine de Bourgh- I want to tell her off for her rudeness every single time) to the costumes, dialogue, acting, and everything they just did a truly marvelous job. <3

Yassss! And that's a good pick for summer reading, too. Just a nice fit, especially if the weather's nice. But it makes a good winter read, too, preferably curled up in a comfy chair with a quilt, fire-crackling sound effects, cuppa tea, soft music...shmancy feelings, basically. ;)

Aww what a cutie!! ^_^

So, I didn't know that Sunday was the first day of the challenge until... well, Sunday. I do not like. So, today is my first day, and I'll just go an extra day at the end :P

 

(Not to mention, yesterday I went to the theater to see CAP'N MURICA and ate terrible food while I was there, so it was not a day I want on my records.... ;))

Didn't realize the challenge started yesterday either, so it was a good thing I picked that dial to start dialing in my noming habits.  But even if you didn't, Monday is always the perfect day to start fresh.  ;)

Yaaay Hufflepuff! Right now, I'm just pumped to get finals week out of the way... only two days left!!!

 

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

 

Day 1.2 - Tracked food. Only a little bit over on calories, but like a gazillion times over on carbs. Also, bought food at school cos we didn't have anything easy to bring along from home. Why does all the affordable food at school have to be so carb heavy??? ARGH. 

 

Today is studying... and tomorrow is my final battle with the evil Magneto! At least, I hope. The final exam is worth a HUGE portion of the grade.... so I'm pretty freakin' nervous. I'm sure it'll be fine though.
