After breakfast yesterday, Gardner, my Mom & I ventured out to Costco. Gar & I were pretty excited to stock up on stuff for school & omg Costco is huge! I was in awe haha… amazing 🙂
We had some funnn…
Lunch was eaten at panera (no picture because I had the same bbq chopped chicken salad!)
I had a therapy appointment at 4 followed by nutrition group with the nutritionist, Sonja, from 5:30-6:30. I brought this dinner
Afterwards, Gardner came over & we decided to go to campus & get some red mango because we’d never been! We sampled every flavor but both got original! I put pomegranate seeds on it and graham cracker crumbles. I love froyo, I really do.
Then, spontaneously, we decided to go to a bar & get a drink 🙂 I knowww, i’m underage but sorry if this offends anyone- we do find our ways in college nowadays haha. I just had a glass of wine & he had a beer. He turns 21 in May- I can’t believe it! I almost didn’t want to post this because I was afraid people would judge me for drinking, but this is my blog, my space & I want to use it to remember fun times.
When we came home, we were soo tired. He fell asleep on me and it was really cute… He definitely was hardcore sleeping because he woke up several times and said some of the most random things EVER (i think he was sleeping when he said them). These included.
“There aren’t many Cleveland fans here….”
“You are my little freezer pack”… okkkkk ??? hahhaa.
This morning I had my first bowl of pumpkin oats EVER. Bah, it was sooo so good! I have been missing out for sure. I love being home because I have plenty of room for experimentation.
In this mix: about 1/2 cup oat bran made with 1/4 cup egg beaters and a little less than a cup of water. Then 1/2 cup of pumpkin stirred in at the end, cinnamon raisin peanut butter, bananas, and some cocoa roast almonds.
I’m meeting my friend in a little bit at pita pit because he goes to Ohio State and so hopefully that is good! I’ve never had it.
What is on your agenda today?
On another note, I want to bring up an observation that really irked me. After my dad’s standard Sunday grocery trip, I went to eat a banana. I couldn’t help but notice….
that stupid sticker. lose weight on the dole banana diet. Really??? I’m sorry, but I can’t help but notice how prevalent weight loss is. It is everywhere. When you watch commercials, I’d say at least 1/4 of them are about losing weight. For someone like me and many readers who struggle with weight issues, it is really triggering to see all these ads about losing weight. I hate how they make something as simple & delicious as a banana into a weight loss ad!
On top of that, I decided to look at the website and they are recommending a 1200 calorie a day diet… that just makes me so angry! That is really not adequate fuel for anyone.
Now, generally, I am not one of those ‘activist/feminist’ type of people– i really don’t like to make trouble, i just kinda like to live life. Usually i’d be annoyed if I heard someone ranting about something like this. But this is the last straw for me. It has been making me soo annoyed that I decided i’m going to do something about it. My mom & I are going to make stickers that say “you are beautiful the way you are” and put them next to these stickers at local grocery stores on the bananas.
What do you think? Do you think this is too much? Annoying? Or do you think it is a positive thing? I really appreciate your honesty in answering this question.
I think i’m going to do this tomorrow though, if the feedback I get from you all is positive!
Thanks for the insight
Be on the lookout for a giveaway- i’m trying to put one together to thank you all for being so supportive!!!
Hope you have a wonderful day 🙂
