As you all have noticed, I haven’t been blogging quite as frequently as I would like. The thing is, I think this is best for me. I blog when I have time and am trying not to get stressed over a feeling of obligation to blogging. I blog because I like it 🙂 No need to do it every day!
lunch wednesday was a veggie burger on whole grain bread with swiss cheese, cheddar bunnies, and a pear.
wow, my memory is pretty pathetic right now haha. Wednesday is a bittt of a blur. I ate my snack during a class and didn’t photo it (oops!) and then dinner was at one of my favorite restaurants on State Street called Mia Za’s! You can make your own salad, pizza, pasta, or panini! I made a salad because I honestly love them! They are humongous!! There are so many topping options.
Mine had turkey feta, lots ofveggies, craisins, raisins, almonds, & sundried tomato dressing and I also ate an aple and Rachel’s baked bbq chips!
See what I mean?? massive!!!
2 packets of instant oats, 1/4 cup egg whites, baby food (yep) stirred in with cinnamon raisin swirl and banana… perfect! I got the baby food idea from Danielle and I loved it!
Part of my dinner was this salad. I also had a pear, annie’s chocolate chip bunnies and other munchies!
(i’m on the left!) It was an ok night. There was all this hype for this stupid frat party and it wasn’t that great. Granted, it might have helped if I knew who Mike posner was haha but that is besides the point..
I wound up at Gardner’s. no big!
Today I consciously made the decision to not take food pictures today. Why? because I didn’t feel like it. I think that part of being a “normal” eater (for me at least) includes not photographing every meal. Obviously, not everyone blogs and I LOVE blogging but I just don’t want to feel like I need to photograph every meal because it only will add to my obsessiveness tendencies- u know? So some days I will picture it, and some days I won’t!
I know I am doing so well in recovery. I am like 5 pounds away from target! I joked with my mom “I gained the freshman 15″ hehe. I kiddd (though not really haha), anyways…
Yeah, i’m doing well but then WHY do I still have fat talk rollling in my head like 90% of the time? So frustrating! & on top of that, my old jeans are starting to fit again. I am happy, on the one hand, but on the other hand i’m like whaaattt?! kinda freakin out. I think it is time to throw away my anorexic clothes… thoughts?
oh, & of course.. I’m going to answer questions!! I didn’t forget loves 🙂 I have a lot so i’m trying to figure out the best way to go about this- I’m probably going to do one post with like 5-10 of them at once, but for now i’m taking them question by question.
A few people have asked me about where i eat/do i eat in the cafeteria/do i prepare my own food/etc. I can’t remember everyone who asked, but I’ll sum it up for you all!
Ok, so here’s the dealio. I do eat in the cafeteria a majority of the time. I tend to bring stuff for breakfast. Like if i want a yogurt mess, i’ll bring my yogurt and use one of their bowls and bananas, raisins, etc. I used to be worried somewhat would look at me and think it is weird but now i could really care less! I laugh about it with my friends and usually my friends are jealous 🙂 I like being in the cafeteria for the social aspect so it works out. I get sandwiches from the caf a lot and sometimes i’ll bring my own like pretzels/laughing cow cheese/etc. Now & then, I do prepare my food in my room if I am busy or it is easier! Sometimes, though, I totally just go and wing it with my friends! Usually those meals aren’t pictured 🙂
Also, a lot of people asked what I am studying/majoring in!
Psychology!! I started pre-business but was really uninterested in it and after taking intro to psych, I realized I was so interested in psychology! I hope to be a counseling psychologist and work with either children or teens/woman with body image issues (I hope one day I am 100% recovered and am able to not only help them, but be able to relate to what they are going through!)
Have fantastic weekends!! Tonight i’m taking it easy and seeing a movie with one of my best friends 🙂
soo in sum, I have some questions for you- 1) what ARE majoring in/what DID you major in/what WILL you major in? 🙂 (whichever applies to you of course!)
2) what are your feelings on anorexic clothes/throwing them out/etc.?
3) weekend plans??
