I am sitting here in my dorm room digesting the greek yogurt I just ate. I had about 3 spoonfuls of plain greek yogurt mixed with a spoonful of sugar free grape jelly. Here’s my dilemma…aside from the fact that I’m rushing this because I have to be at my next joyful and uplifting class called “Death as a Fact of Life” in about 10 minutes…and for a first post it’s probably not going to be that great, My dilemma is FOOD! Not necessarily food in general, but food at Manhattan College and probably all colleges in general. I am not overweight…I’ll start by saying that. I don’t want that to be confused…I am 5’4 and 130ish pounds depending on the day, time, and time of the month I weigh myself. I left for college last year this time at 118lbs. So I’ve gained a substantial amount of weight. I feel uncomfortable and unhealthy. I want to be back to feeling light and healthy. I was at the infamous Lockes Loft last night with my boyfriend Bobby. (This is the all you can eat restaurant on the 4th floor of Thomas Hall at Manhattan College) I was trying to find something semi-healthy to eat when I came across BBQ ribs. Obviously this isn’t healthy but I didn’t think it was going to be this unhealthy…For 1 plate of ribs it was a little over 1100 calories and over 2000 mg of sodium…ARE THEY TRYING TO KILL US?! I wound up having a salad which consisted of Lettuce, tomato, a cut up cheeseburger with no bun, red onion, and a little bit of light ranch dressing. Basically…IT WAS DISGUSTING.


Health, love, and survival…Carissa
