Hi Loves.. How are your weeks?!
On Sunday night I went to the Blue Jackets game with my parents & Gardner! Before we left, I had my snack which featured this bar & an orange
After the game, I got a late dinner with my parents at a restaurant called Betty’s. Betty’s is a small diner/bar but has really impressive vegetarian/vegan options! I started with black bean hummus and pita (gotta get my carbs!!) & then got the warm 3 mushroom salad with goat cheese & schwezan marinated tofu… soo good!
I decided to make some overnight oats! I included blueberry oikos, 1/2 cup of oats, 1/2 cup of water & then topped it with cinnamon raisin swirl, banana, and some cocoa roast almonds
Gardner came over & we had this GRAND idea that we would go to lunch at jersey mike’s subs(i’m trying to venture out to new placess.. i’d never been) & then sled. well the first part happened, the second part not so much :-\…it was cold!!
But i LOVED Jersey Subs.. I got THIS babbby
I got this turkey & provolone wrap- delicious 🙂
I had IOP and had to leave at 5.. as always, I ate dinner there & had the portabello mushroom veggie burger with swiss cheese & pretzels, a sliced pear, carrots & some almonds
IOP went pretty well- nothing particularly noteworthy. Afterwards, Gardner and I went to see Up in the Air & it was good but soo sad. We had a good time together and there were only 2 others in the movie theatre. I’d recommend the movie! When i was there, I snacked on a luna peppermint stick bar, 12 cocoa roast almonds, & some grapes.
This moring I finally tried egg-white oats!! I put 1/3 cup of oatbran iwth 1/4 cup of liquid egg whites & 3/4 cup of water. I also had peanut butter, banana, & a half serving of granola on top… soo good! I love the fluffiness the egg whites caused.
The other day, this girl talked about how she was completely present while knitting. I was talking to Gardner about this because lately i’ve really been working on being more present in my life & experiences. I know that it is unrealistic to expect to always be tuned into what I am doing, but at the same time, I hate the way that eating disorders can make you go through the motions without really living or experiencing things.
Life should be about the moments that you are completely in tune with what you are doing, who you are with, or whatever it may be. Last night, after the movie, Gardner & I sat in his car for 15 minutes and had really great, deep, heartfelt conversation. I felt so completely tuned in, happy & content and it felt good. I decided it was my goal to try to tune in to what I am experiencing at least once a day- no distractions, no Ed thoughts, nothing besides the present.
We talked about how nature can do that for us. It is so amazing to just take in your surroundings & really appreciate them.
Are there any moments you can think of where you have just been completely in tune with what is going on?
I hope you are all having a great week & I really enjoyed hearing about your collections 🙂 very cool!
