Well ladies, its hump day again 🙂
These summer weeks are just flying by eh? I can’t beleive its already mid-July!!
So this hump day, I am in much less of a slump than the last one 🙂 My cousin arrived from Iceland last night! He is one of my best friends, and I am so stoked to have him here for 2 weeks! We have lots of fun stuff planned, shopping, sight seeing, baseball games, clubbing 😉 I cannot remember the last time my house was this full! Between January and April it was just me and my dad, but then my mom came back from Iceland, then my brother, and now my cousin. Full House 🙂
While my cousin knows everything that is going on with me, and that I am on a food schedule etc, I’m not gonna make him eat at my house all the time while he is on vacation! This means we will be taking him to restaurants and having some unplanned eats, but I will try the best I can to just be flexible. I’m also a little embarrassed about having to eat so often in front of him (6 times a day), but thats something I just have to get over if he is going to be here for 2 weeks. In reality, its nothing to be embarrased about! I’m trying to get better, and food is my (delicious) medicine! I am sure he will understand 🙂
Im gonna try my best to keep posting, but I may not be able to some days just cause things wills probably be a little hectic. Also, Im not telling my cousin about the blog, so food photo taking will have to be stealthy haha. I will for sure keep checking all your blogs though, no doubt about that!
Alright, on to some eats, all of these are from Monday 🙂
Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal, with 1/2 english muffin, topped with 1 tbsp DCD and sliced banana.
Please ignore the splenda pack, I caved a little. Had half of it on the english muffin, and then realised…its tastes kinda bad!
I beleive my days of splenda loving are over!
Can I get an aaaaaamen!?
That breakie kept me quite full for a few hours, but low and behold, a snack was consumed around 12:
Strawberry Cottage Cheese, All Bran Buds, and some mo’ Java.
Just as I was finishing my snack, my mom said she was heading off to yoga. I asked if I could tag along, and she was ddooowwwn.
It was my first time doing a normal class in about 2 years (I usually have private sessions, with the same teacher) and it was really fun! The stuff they were doing was a little more intense than what I do, but I just did what I could, and when the poses got too hard, I just chilled in childs pose. 🙂 It was fun!
After yoga we headed home, where I made some much needed lunch:
Brown Rice wrap with 2 slices turkey, melty mozzarella, tomato, lettuce and mustard. Apple slices, baby carrots, kashi crackers and some mango orange juice on the side. This was delicious, as always.
However, I do think that my lunches need a little more variety. Its always a similar sandwich with the same sides, and frankly, I am getting a little bored. Maybe a falafel one day? or a PB+J? 🙂 we will see what I come up with..
After lunch I did a little blogging and commenting, followed by a walk around the neighbourhood with my mom, cause on such a beaaauty of a day, its a shame to be inside for all of it!
When I got home from the walk, it was snack time once again:
Vanilla yogurt with a crumbled up fruit n fibre bar (love em high fructose corn syrups…for some reason in Canada its labelled as glucose-fructose..odd yes?) and a strawberry boost.
This was delicious and not too filling, which was key cause momma was cookin’ up a storm in the kitchen, and this time I got a picture of the magical result.
This is probably one of my favourite dinners of all time:
Salmon poached in lemon juice and white wine, steamed veggies, brown rice, laughing cow for added flava on the veg, and some apple slices for dessert. Washed down with some vanilla soy milk 🙂
This was sooo good. I used to make this all the time, but for some reason had stopped making it. And ever since my mom made this on Friday night, I have been talking about how delicious it was, so she felt a repeat was in order. I wasn’t gonna argue 🙂
After dinner we all just lounged around the house. I also got to talking to one of my best friends who is spending the year in London, England. She has had such an incredible time. She got herself a job doing lighting for play productions there, and has since been asked by bands to do lighting for their gigs, and by event promoters to do lighting for their club events. preeeettyy snazzzy. The girl is finally returning to Canada in August, and I could not be happier. Though Im sure she would much rather just stay in England (can you really blame her?)
Deep chocolate vitamffin with a kids vanilla fudge sundae cup, and some chocolate milk 🙂
This was not the best ice cream I have ever had, so instead of eating it separate, I kinda melted it into the muffin, and it turned into a kind of chocolate mush. All I can say is YUM!
In other news, I saw my dietitian yesterday and had a weigh in. She said my food records looked good, and that I was still doing really well. Only issue being that my gains are still not quite as good as they should be. For example I only gained 0.5 pound this time. So we agreed that I should try my best to get in every single serving (some days I miss one to two), and always get the supplement in, and see where that takes me. I’m gonna try my best to do that,so that I can keep seeing good results! This makes it all the more important for me to just stick to the meal plan, regardless of what my cousin may think of all the food I’m eating [too be honest, in all likelihood, he probably won’t even think about it, its prob just my ED being like: BE EMBARRASED! Lame ED…lame lame lame.]
Also, over the past few days I have gotten some e-mails from girls reading the blog, which has been really nice 🙂 Thank you for your e-mails!!
I just wanted to say that if anyone has any questions, or just wants to talk, I love getting e-mails, so do no hesitate to contact me 🙂 Also thank you all for reading my ramblings, its so great to know that some of you find it helpful, and I am really loving the blogging community 🙂
So as I said, I will try my best to keep posting, but there may be a few days here and there when I am a little less active than usual.
Hope you all have a great hump day!
