close up of my sandwich, yummy :)
The afternoon was a bit boring. I just relaxed around the house and read my PEOPLE magazine and then I later had a snack. A Vanilla Power Bar and a G2. I am getting kind of sick of the Vanilla Crisp flavor, it is alright I guess. I used to only eat the Vanilla flavor because it had the lowest amount of calories and fat compared to all of the other power bar flavors. So that is probably the reason why I am getting sick of eating them. But now I also like the Chocolate and Cookies 'n Cream, those are my two favorite!
After snack my mom and I went out to do a few errands. We came back and I later had dinner. I had a Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers meal, Cajun Style Chicken & Shrimp. I have had this meal before and it is okay. It was pieces of chicken and shrimp served over rice and vegetables with a cajun-style sauce. Overall, the meal was good and it had a decent portion.
Along with the meal I had a dinner roll with some butter and a glass of milk.
Can I just say I really don't like dinners...at all! Dinners have always been my downfall in my recovery in ED, even while I was inpatient at the hospital. Ever since I have been recovering from ED I have always started my days out strong but then as the day goes on my lack of motivation seemed to dwindle down, especially at dinner time! By the end of the day I would just be sick of eating and would "take a break", but in recovery there is NO TIME for taking breaks that is for sure!
For the past month or so I have been doing well in gaining weight, I have not dropped in my weight at all. I am going in the right direction but just at a really slow pace, a much slower pace than my parents would like :/
So back to dinners...I just have a really hard time deciding what to eat that fits into my meal plan. There is just so many options to eat at dinner that my mind goes crazy. My dinners also seem to be quit smaller than my breakfast and lunch. Lately I have been trying to add to my dinners. I need to make sure I am getting protein, veggies, and now 2 servings of grains instead of just 1. It is definitely a challenge for me when dinner time rolls around but I try real hard to do what I need to do!
I am gonna go spend some time with momma and the Bells (my dog Bella) for the night and have a Vanilla Boost later!
Everyone who is at the HEALTHY LIVING SUMMIT have fun and I can't wait to read all the blogs later! Good night everyone :)
