I feel so incredibly out of it! I haven’t posted since Wednesday & soo sooo much has happened since then! i’ve missed you beautiful blogetteees 🙂
This past weekend was parent’s weekend, which as you can imagine was pretty crazy. I can’t even lie- I can hear my body saying “Shelley, I hate you” haha because lots of not so great things were consumed/drank/etc. but I had fun so it’s all good right?
Well… to catch you up on some eats…
Thursday I was studying for psych hardcore & so my eats were pretty standard
lunch was typical (i am SUCH a creature of habit!)
for dinner gardner took me to sunroom cafe! my favoriteee… & i tried something new. I ordered the shrimp/vegetable stir fry with the peanut sauce on the side! & it came with a salad which i had with fat free honey dijon dressing..it was soo good!
Thursday night was pretty much a shit show… went to a girl in my sororities birthday party at Uno’s & it was a lot of fun!!
Friday was relaxing because I have no classes 🙂 the family was getting in later that night but I first had lunch with the boy in the cafeteria
it was a salad with hard boiled egg & tofu & veggies, and a REALLY good soup that was like ginger chicken lemongrass soup? idk but loved it!
then me n gar went grocery shopping & just LOOK at my bar drawer now!
i can’t wait to try these & let you know what i think! I even found a seasonal clif bar 🙂
& some other goood buys…
I am so excited to try pumpkin butter! i’ve never had it 🙂
then the family took us out for a really nice dinner at Fleming’s where I had a petite filet mignon, grilled asparagus (looove asparagus), & a huuge baked potato (and lots & lots & lots of wine….) dinner was so good & HILARIOUS. we were all a bit tipsy… haha. it was a nice restaurant
& apparently it was my mom’s ‘birthday’… yes, i had a bite!
then things got so busy & my food pix suffered immensely 😦 but I did have some fabulous sushi last night for the first time but sadly I didn’t get a picture & a great lunch yesterday at sunroom cafe!
so my mom & i have a weight goal for me by thanksgiving. Last time she was here, she weighed me and she weighed me again this time. I was really nervous about it, but I had gained roughly 3 pounds since the last time she weighed me. I was so relieved! & she was really happy. I feel like i am on the right track to recovery. Honestly, the weight I am at now is still low but part of me is starting to feel a little panicked because I feel that I ate so much this weekend & it is kind of stressing me out 😦
Rationally though, I know it is ok & NECESSARY to indulge and i should let myself enjoy it! So i ate a little more this weekend with my family then I normally would, WHO CARES? it tasted good & i enjoyed it.
do you ever feel guilty after an indulgence?
now the lovely lexi tagged me to tell a ‘truth’. & this will be my truth: I love my family & I was so excited to see them, but I have to admit that part of me was terrified for them to come visit me for parent’s weekend. I knew I would be eating a lot more & probably have to go to restaurants where I can’t follow my exact ‘plan’ and that kind of stressed me out. But i’m really proud because I was able to enjoy myself for the most part and I think i showed them that I am on the right track!
i’m going to pass on the truth week to diane because she just made her blog & you should all check it out for sure 🙂
Thanksgiving is coming up- I can’t wait! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite mealsss ever.
sorry for my lack of food pix/blogging lately! i will be getting back on track this week for suree
