Back Again

Hey girls!  I think I’m ready to get back to blogging more.  Hopefully.  :)  I must say, it has been wonderful not worrying about taking photos of all my meals.  In fact, I think that’s what I’m going to start doing – only taking pictures of certain meals.  That way, I won’t get stressed out and obsessed about it. 

What have I been up to?  Well, I saw my nutritionist on the 7th, got restricted to no exercise, had to start drinking 8oz of soymilk at breakfast, lunch and dinner, and was told to not weigh myself.  I’m happy to say that I accomplished all of my goals for those two weeks until I had my next appointment.  The no exercise goal was my biggest challenge – the first week was horrible, I was a cranky mess but by the second week I was feeling much more at ease about it all.  Baby steps!

I went back to see her yesterday and she was very happy that I accomplished everything she set me out to do.  My goals for these next two weeks are:

1.  Continue the soymilk at meals. (do not replace soymilk for other foods)   *I did end up replacing some of my calories with the soymilk; that’s why she gave me this goal. 

2.  Add Boost with dinner if you feel you haven’t eaten enough.  *She basically told me that this goal was up to me to decide.  I’m happy about this – it shows she trusts me. 

3.  Do not write down calories in food.  *I write down my calories in my food journal for her.

4.  Talk with a friend to help support you during lunch. 

5.  Try a bagel *This is my fear food challenge; she wants me to try one before I see her next.

6.  Do not weigh yourself!  *She will be weighing me at each appointment.

I have been eating a little bit more during these two weeks but my weight did not budge.  When she told me that my weight was the same, I was shocked!  I was expecting an increase, even a tiny one.  But no.  Nothing at all! 

It feels good to be back that’s for sure!  I will be back later on today girlies.  I hope you have a wonderful Thursday!  It’s almost FRIDAY!

Slight Hiatus

Hi girls!  I know I’ve been a horrible blogger but for right now I’m going to take a quick hiatus.  I know I haven’t been blogging for very long anyways, but I don’t want to quit.  I will be back, but I know I need some time off from all the food blogs. 

I’ve hit an all-time low weight today and I’m not feeling good emotionally.  Today is the day I see my nutritionist, so I’m hoping that it goes well.  I’m not holding back anymore; I’m tired of feeling this way and letting ED take control.  No more. 

I will be back!  :)

Howdy Strangers

Good morning and happy Monday girls!  I hope you all had a great weekend and are off to a good start this morning.  :)  What are all your plans for this week??

Breakfast this morning was something I haven’t had in a couple months: greek yogurt!  In my bowl I had:

  • 1/2 cup Kashi GoLean
  • 3/4 cup Trader Joes 0% Greek Yogurt
  • 1 frozen naner

This was very yummy, since I added some cinnamon and a splenda (bad!!) on top.  All in all, this was a great start to my morning.  I’m hoping that it keeps me fueled well for my day at work today!

After I get off work I plan to hit the gym for a bit, then come home, clean up and then have some lunch! 

I have a hair appointment tomorrow which I am sooo excited for, since I haven’t had my hair cut in anout 3 1/2-4 months and I also need some highlights.  :)  I’ll try and remember to post a picture tomorrow when it’s all purty. 

Again, sorry for not posting a lot recently, I had gotten sick and just didn’t feel well nor did I eat anything exciting.  See ya later girlies.

So Sorry

I feel terrible that I haven’t posted girls!  I promise I will be back tomorrow though – I haven’t been feeling that great these past couple days and have just been laying low at home. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  :)

Lazy Bum

Sorry I haven’t posted yet today girls!  I’ve been a little lazy and just slacking on everything lately.  I blame my blah mood – I haven’t felt like myself these past couple days.  I hope I snap out of it soon for the sake of everybody!  I hate being a debbie downer.

Anyways, I hope your Friday has gone off to a good start!  I can’t believe how fast this week has gone by.  Make the most of the rest of your time off, pretty soon it’ll be back to work and school for everyone.  I know I didn’t get a break at all but I’m kinda glad because I don’t have to kick myself in the pants to want to go back to work.  :) 

This morning started off the same as always, I had my english muffin with cream cheese and Barney Butter, along with a banana and my cup of crack.  No picture, but it looked just like yesterdays. 

I went to the gym around 11 this morning and it wasn’t as crazy busy as I thought it would be.  You can sure tell who the “resolution go’ers” are though.  I did my bike and elliptical workout, along with a 5 minute walk on the treadmill.  After that, I headed to Trader Joes to get some bananas, bread, mushrooms, baby greens and some fat free balsamic vinaigrette.  I was disappointed that they didn’t have a light version; I hate getting fat free dressing because I know I could use some of the good fats in the more caloric versions.  Oh well, when I run out of this (it’s very good by the way!) I’ll go to Lassen’s or my store to get a different brand.  I’ve been dying to try Annie’s or Newman’s Own dressings.  Anyone have any favorites?

My lunch today was a tiny bit different than what I’m used to, but still sorta the same.  I had my chicken with swiss sandwich, but instead of putting my greens on the sandwich, I just had a side salad with my added mushrooms, balsamic vinaigrette and a tiny bit of mustard.  Loved it.  I think I might start doing this from now on – I haven’t had the pleasure of making my own salads in a long time and it was very satisfying!

Sorry for the bad sandwich picture!  That’s the best I could get. 

Speaking of cameras, I still haven’t gotten my new one, but I am checking every single day to see if it’s close to being here.  Sometimes I hate that UPS tracking service – it gets addicting if your anticipating a package! 

Right now I’m drinking the evil Diet Dr. Pepper.  I won’t lie to you guys: I’ve been having one of these a day for about 4-5 days now.  Not good…I need to get off of these but they are so damn good.  Give me some inspiration girls!  :P 

Well, that’s it for now, but I just wanted to thank each and every one of you awesome girlies for commenting and taking the time to read my posts!  You have no idea how much they mean to me – each and every one I take to heart.  I’ve been slacking on the blog reading and commenting, so please forgive me. 

Tootles!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year girls!  Sorry I’ve been absent lately – I just haven’t felt much like blogging all my meals.  Anyways, I hope you all had a fun and safe night last night to ring in the new year!  I spent mine on the phone with a good friend of mine.  He was very drunk so it was a pretty interesting conversation we had.  :P 

Last night I also got the worst feeling of nausea and my stomach was acting up for a couple hours.  I felt horrible but I feel a lot better this morning, so I’m not sure what the cause of it was? 

I decided to take it somewhat easy on my stomach this morning and have a nice and simple breakfast.  I had an english muffin with one tablespoon of light cream cheese, one tablespoon Barney Butter and a frozen naner.  It hit the spot and I felt much better after eating.

I’m also enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee right now.  It’s been a while since I’ve had my crack in  a cup! 

I don’t have any plans for today so I’m just planning on reading and watching t.v.  I do need some bananas however, so I might head to the store later on. 

Have any of you heard the song Poker Face by Lady Gaga?  I LOVE THIS SONG!  It’s on my myspace page and I have been constantly playing it over and over on my MP3.  Oh!  Do any of you ladies have a myspace?  If so, I’d love to be friends with you, if you don’t mind.  :)

One thing I haven’t written about here yet are my New Year’s resolutions; I sometimes hate making them because I don’t want to feel obligated to furfill each and every one.  That just makes me one stressed out girl.  And we don’t want that happening!  I will say that I hope to:

Gain my health back, as well as maintain it.  I’ve treated my body so horrible in the past year, but my mission for this year is to treat myself with respect.  No more. 

I know each and every one of you has the strength to make this year your best yet!  Don’t let anything stop you or get in your way of accomplishing your dreams.  You girls deserve it.

Up And At ‘Em

Good afternoon lovies!  I hope you are all having a good New Year’s Eve! 

Sorry I didn’t post this morning – it was way too early for me to be on the computer, let alone write a post.  I just got home from work and I am pooped.  I’m glad it went by fast though; I had my MP3 player keep me company before we opened this morning.

For dinner last night I ended up having an english muffin with cream cheese and peanut butter.  No picture, sorry!  I also had a couple dark chocolate covered raisins after.  Yum yum.

And breakfast this morning was that wonderful croissant!  Oh my God.  That thing was so freaken good; it just melted in my mouth, and that chocolate!!  Words can’t descibe how good it was.  So nice and yummy and buttery.  GAH I want to experience it all over again.  :P

Now is the time I wish I had my new camera! This picture doesn’t do it justice at all. Trust me.

I am gonna end this now because this gal needs a nap.  I will try to post later on but who knows how long I’ll sleep for!  Oh but I have a quick question for you guys: What are your plans for tonight and tomorrow?  Anything fun?
