Look on the bright side

Hello hello hello

This is going to be a quick post because I am on my way out with the fam, but things are OK.

I’m still super bummed, but I talked with my dad, and he was up for the idea of me going back in January, and just about an hour ago, my mom suggested me going to school, but just taking a lighter course load, and coming home every weekend. So I hoooopping that will be the case. Going back at all would be fantastic! So I am keeping my hopes and my head up πŸ™‚

Yesterday was tough, but I got through it, stuck to the plan, and I felt good by the end of the day, and had enjoyed quite a few lovely eats.

Breakfast:

To begin bringing me out of my slump, I had a breakfast favourite. πŸ˜‰

2 eggo apple cinnamon fibre plus waffles, 1 banana, cottage cheese and some coffee.

I loveeedd these waffles, it was my first time trying that flavour, and they were yummmyy, and definetley helped put a bit of a smile on my face πŸ™‚

I talked some things over with my dad and mom, and it was a little intense. So after that, my mom and I took a stroll to the neighbouthood starbucks, to blow off some steam, with some steamy drinks:

Double shot tall soy latte, and a chocolate chip peanut crunch clif bar.

I had this flavour before, and it was just as good this time around.
But nothing beats the maple nut. πŸ™‚

I only had about half the bar, cause this girl was a little stuffed. I just planned to finish it later.

After this we went grocery shopping (as you notice, my mom was trying her best to cheer me up) and we got some very necessary grub which included la tortilla wraps, kashi crackers, turkey, apples, peanut butter puffins, some more clif bars and some juuiiice.

With my shiny new wraps I whipped up this DSC01753lunch:
Tortilla with lemon pepper tuna, laughing cow cheese and tomato slices {panini times} along with baby carrots, apple slices, and some pomegranate blueberry juice.

I was only able to eat half of this before I had to run out the door for my yoga session.

Yoga was the usual, super nice and relaxing. I always leave feeling so much more connected and in tune with my body πŸ™‚ love love love it.

After yoga I promptly had my post workout snack the rest of my lunch, and read some blogs.

Before I knew it, I was off to therapy. Which went well, I would explain if I had more time, but basically he was able to clear some things up for me, and helped me to see the positives of the situation, rather than focus on the negatives. [such as having proper time to get better, spend more time with my brother who will be in the city this year etc.]

I needed some more comfort food, and what better than a littleΒ cocoa:

Liberte Vanilla Yogurt and a cocoa mint jocolat larabar.

This is the only jocalat flavour I have tried, and I love it so much that I have yet to tear myself away from it to try the other flavours. Some day..some day..

I crumbeled it into the yogurt, and it was loverrrlyy.

After this snack, I finished up my blog entry, and got myself ready for my friends BBQ, only to get a call from her saying it was no longer a BBQ (due to some rain), just a party, and I should get myself over there just a litttlee later.

I was all dolled up with no where to go (yet)
So I just pranced around the house for a bit, and then made myself this dinner (BBQ inspired):
DSC01758 Chicken burger on a whole wheat pita, with melty cheddar cheese, mustard and ketchup.

Steamed veggies, kashi crackers and a laughing cow cheese wedge.

After one bite, I felt the burger needed some more pizzazz, so I put the LC wedge on the burger, and put that baby on the panini, again. Problem solved. This burger deserved prizes.

Photo credits go to mom, who remembered for me to snap a photo πŸ˜‰

Then I was off to the BBQ. It was really fun, saw some friends, met some new people, had a drink, and felt a little more normal again. It made me realise how much we neeed interaction to be healthy. Just being with other people, and being out of the house made me feel so much more at ease with myself, and with the wholes situation. (though it did suck when people from other schools started talking about how stoked they were to come visit us at our house next year..but im keeping my hopes up! I will be there at some point!)

I headed home sometime after midnight, kinda early, but peoples had work, so it wasn’t an all night raging vibe anyway, gotta save some energy for the weekend πŸ˜‰

Once home I was ready for some sleep, and tucked myself right into bed.

Well girlies, as always here is yesterdays sweet concontion:
DSC01759
Cookies n Cream Ice Cream, some skor bites, the rest of my clif bar (I didnt forget πŸ™‚ ) and some chocolate milk

I am off to sushi with the fam, we’re gonna try and just put all this drama aside for a night, and just enjoy some time together.

Then tomorrow morning I have the weigh in with my dietitan! Hoping for the best!

Have a lovely night girlies!!

Hellllooooooooo!
First real post, here we go πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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

am snack

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:

DSC01668

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 πŸ™‚

By the time I got home, it had been a while since lunch and I was sttaarrvvingg.

DSC01673

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 πŸ™‚

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:

ddiinnnerrTuna 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:

DSC01677

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 πŸ™‚

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!!
