Wow, last week was stressful. Filled with hours upon hours of studying biology! Thankfully, I think I got a B on my test (*phew*) and now I’m recuperating from the week.
I do have some eats pictured, but when stress comes in, pictures go out. I know you all understand!
You will never ever guess what I’ve been having loving for breakfast the past few days- uhh yoatgurt. obviously.
One morning I had yoatgurt with whipped banana oats, cinnamon raisin peanut butter, 365 honey puffs, fage 2% (love) and banana.
I woke up this morning and had to cram for my music 101 exam- naturally I needed brain power
The quiz went well & I left hungry for lunch!
I literally rested/lounged with Gar all day. Then, around 7:30 I ran my mile 🙂 yay for small amounts of exercise! haha.
Dinner was a baked potato with salsa, salad with feta & ham & amy’s cheddar burger, baked lays & an apple
Review: I liked it. Didn’t love it- but definitely liked it. It was a little too sweet but I would definitely get it again because it is naturally sweetened, pretty tasty, and a much healthier alternative to diet coke.
As some of you know and others could probably imagine, recovery is extremely difficult because the positive results are often hard to recognize since ed can be an extremely strong voice. I have started to notice how much better I feel and act but I feel like others may not notice sometimes. I worry they think it is weird that i’m gaining weight.
I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Before the social Thursday night, I was getting ready with my friend Libby (the pink powerpuff girl- Blossom!) and she said “ok, not to get all weird on you, but I really admire you.” She went on to talk about how much she respects the fact that I brought myself out of the disorder and how last semester I was so introverted and quiet, and now I am just so energetic/fun/etc. She also told me others have been talking about it too. That same night, another friend said something along the same lines.
INTROVERTED? hold up. me? noooo. I am the opposite of introverted. I am one of the more extroverted people I know LOL. When I heard her say this, it was one of the biggest reminders/red flags that I am so much better off without my eating disorder. I am extroverted and I am extremely outgoing. I can’t believe I let part of my personality vanish for a stupid disease.
Gertrude (my ed name for you new readers hah) took so much from me- she took my personality, she took my happiness, and she took my health. I am so happy that I am getting all those things back and more. I couldn’t be happier that others are noticing how much better off I am too. I am so glad she opened up and told me that she felt that way – it meant a lot and gave me the boost I needed to stay on track.
My questions for you– 1) Do you consider yourself introverted or extroverted? you know my answer 🙂
2) What was your favorite cartoon growing up? I loved Hey Arnold!! I also was a big Tom & Jerry fan.
Hope the rest of your weekends are fabulous!! Take some time to relax and really enjoy whatever you are doing 🙂
