First real post, here we go 🙂
Yesterday started out really well.
I woke up nice and early, and decided to fix myself a breakfast I love, but also fear a bit at the same time.
Theres no picture, but I made a peanut butter banana pita panini, with some vanilla yogurt with berries and coffee on tha sidde. While I absolutely love this breakfast I tend to stray away from it, because the calorie density of the peanut butter scares me sometime. But NO MORE! Its delicious, I like it, and whooo givess a whatsit about calories yeah?
I have made the decision that this week I am going to have a TBSP of peanut butter at least every other day, and try and rid myself of this irrational fear. Should be a yummy week 🙂
After breakfast I watched some Ellen Degeners with my moms, then cleaned my room a bit..and before I knew it, it was snack time
Peach Mango Yogurt Drink, English Muffin with butter and the rest of my breakfast banana.
I wish I could say I did more in the morning, but I really just hung around with my mom, which was actually kind of nice. But I definetley think I need to get myself a hobby or something to do during the day. All my friends have summer jobs, which means most of my weekdays are pretty uneventful..maybe art classes? we’ll see
By around 1:30, I realized I hadn’t had lunch, and had to be at yoga in less than an hour! So I quickly whipped up and chowed down on the following:
Turkey, mozzarella and mustard on a brown rice wrap, panini’d, with some baby carrots, 1/2 a golden delicious apple, and Kashi TLC crackers. All washed down with some mango juice.
Then I was off to yoga! I really love my yoga sessions, which is weird because I tried yoga two years ago and absolutely hated it. But ever since starting these private lessons back in April, I have come to really love, and even look forward to my one hour yoga sessions.
As soon as yoga was done I was straight off to my therapist session (bad scheduling on my part :p )
Therapy went pretty well, we talked a lot about how I need to let my friends in more. While I have always been realllllyyy open with my closest friends, it seems that when it comes to my ED, we have all kinda silently decided not to talk about it, except for the odd mention here and there. Rightfully so, my therapist said this wasn’t healthy for my friendships, and that I should be more open about it, especially since my friends probablly have questions they don’t feel comfertable asking etc. I do feel that a distance has been created by this ED between me and my friends, and I really don’t want that to continue. My friends mean the world too me, and I just need to remind them of that this week 🙂
By the time I got home, it had been a while since lunch and I was sttaarrvvingg.
Cashew Cookie LaraBar (lovelovelove) and an Adina Indian Iced Chai Latte that I picked up from whole foods. I love these Iced Lattes, they add a little snaazz to my afternoon milk serving 🙂
After my snack, me and my dad went on a nice long walk around my area, just talking and enjoying the weather. We also called my brother, who is arriving today from Iceland (my country of origin yeaah buddy) to come live with us for a year. Im really excited to have him here for the year, and hey! he’s someone to hang out with during the week!! (but still..art classes..maybe?)
When we got home, my dad had already eaten about 3 of my Luna Bars and was not feeling up to dinner, so I made myself something I had been ccrraavving:
Tuna Casserole! …kinda.. haha
It was 1 cup of brown rice pasta with tuna, and then 1 laughing cow cheese wedge (can’t get enough of these) melted in, and for extra cheesyness, a slice of mozzarella melted on top and then mixed in. My side dish included 1/2 an english muffin with the rest of my LC wedge, and tuna spread on it, 1/2 a golden delicious, baby carrots, and some gatorade (gotta have at least one of these a day for the electrolytes apparently..anyone else have to include elctrolytes?)
I enjoyed my dinner while watching a documentary with my dad, Jesus Camp, has anyone seen this!? I won’t ruin it for all of you, but this movie is craazzy good. Although I myself am not religious, I do think its great when people have a faith they are dedicated to, but when it goes to such extremes as it does in this documentary, it can be a scary thing.
wooo, this post is getting tooo long, so I’ll just finish off with my desert and call it a day:
A crumbeled nature valley maple brown sugar bar, with some Breyers cookies and cream ice cream. A lil choco milk on da siddee.
Alright, well first post done. That was fun 🙂
I promise I will work on shortening things and taking more appealing pictures.
Hope you all have a lovely wednesday, and for those of you in Canada with mee
HAPPY CANADA DAY!!
