Let me tell you this flavor was amazing! I chilled it in the freezer for a half hour before drinking to get it nice and cold and it was perfect! It tasted like pecan, butter, and vanilla. I feel like I was like drinking a delicious milkshake but really it was a yummy nutritional drink ;) You will DEFINITELY be seeing me drinking more of these in the future!
Now onto breakfast this morning featuring yet another yogurt mess! Gotta have the key components such as...Brown Cow yogurtKashi Go Leana banana (I only had 1 but I took a picture of our lil banana holder)Party with Potassium ;) I thought it was cute.Crazy Richard's creamy pbthe end result!Ok so as much as I love my Anthropologie bowl I must say I am kind of getting sick of looking at it every day on the blog and I assume you are too! I need to get more cute breakfast bowls ;)yogurt mess all mixed up like it should be! Perfect and delicious :)Morning snack was a Vanilla Boost with a serving of almonds. Then my mom and I went to go vote for the Senate Race. Yeah for voting!!
Lunch was a turkey panini on whole wheat bread with american cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes with some pretzels, an apple, and milk. I must say I am kind of getting sick of apples as well, so I WILL be switching it up in the near future.
Then it was time for my doctors appointment with my mom! I was super nervous and anxious to see what was going to happen.
So to back track to last Saturday when all hell broke lose for me. The director of Health Services officially told me I had to take a medical leave from school to seek more medical attention and come up with a plan with my doctor before returning back to school.
So as of right now I am currently on medical leave for school for the next few weeks. I am only allowed to miss up to two weeks for medical leave or then I will be too far behind in my classes to catch up and would have to withdrawal for the semester which is NOT what I want to do since I had to withdrawal last spring for my ED (not fun!)
On Saturday when I was in tears after I found out I couldn't go back to school, I thought I was done for the semester and I would definitely be going back to Walden. I thought that was my only option. So I did call like I told you all and then on Sunday I had my telephone intake and then I was scheduled to be admitted this morning.
Well over the weekend I did a lot of thinking as to what I was going to do. I mean I couldn't afford to miss another semester of school but I also need to get healthy, strong, and get my life back. I had so much going through my mind!
On Sunday when I totally took a 360 turn in the right direction, I decided I was sick of this ED ruining everything and I wanted it to change! I knew I wanted to get over this ED, move on with my life, and get back to school. That was my goal and I was determined to conquer it.
So even though I told you I was admitting myself to in-patient treatment on Saturday I still had other options. I wanted to meet with my doctor to come up with a plan as to what I should do to get healthy and be able to return back to school.
This afternoon my doctor, my mom, and I all met to come up with a solid plan we all felt was going to be successful for me. My doctor basically told me Health Services slammed the door in my face this past Saturday but is willing to open it up again for me! In order for me to return back to school I must have a plan in order. Like I said before I can only take up to two weeks off from school for my medical absence before having to withdrawal for the semester. So for the next two weeks I need to show some major improvement not only to myself but to everyone else as well. I will be having several weigh-ins at my doctors over the next few weeks to make sure I am doing well and I also will be seeing my therapist weekly. These next two weeks at home are crucial for me to do well! As long as I can keep it up over the next few weeks and do what I need to do then hopefully I will be able to return back to campus. I just hope I can do it! Well actually...I know I can do it! Ever since Sunday morning I have a totally new positive attitude towards recovery:)
Oh yeah I also had to get some blood work done and get an EKG while at the doctors this afternoon as well.
With that being said as of right now I will NOT be going in-patient at Walden, at least not this week. But however if I am not doing well at home over these next few weeks I will most likely be going back. I am sorry for saying on Saturday I was admitting myself to Walden. I know a lot of you were all so happy for me that I was going to going to get treatment. I only said that was because I thought that was my only option, I didn't know there were other options I had. But over the weekend I did a lot of thinking and I decided what I wanted to do and what I thought would be best for me.
So again I am so so sorry for telling you I was going in-patient and now I am not. I bet a lot of you are disappointed in me but I feel as though I made the right decision in my recovery. I didn't mean to lie to you or anything at all. I hope you all understand where I am coming from!
Okay so moving onto the foodie front...I may or may not have a lil obsession with Clif Bars now ;) No shame! I don't know why I never ate these bars over the past summer rather than having Power Bars all the time. Well actually I do know why! ED always told me Clif Bars have a few more calories in them than Power Bars so that I should stay away from them. That's why! But really what does ED know? Oh yeah...NOTHING!
But ever since having an ED and recovering from it I have learned a whole lot about food and nutrition. I must say I am now a fan of Clif Bars because of their great nutrition, taste, and whole organic and natural ingredients!
So basically I am saying I have a new found love for Clif Bars ;) And you could probably guess what I had for an afternoon snack! If you guessed a Clif Bar then you are right. Blueberry Crisp Clif Bar that is!
Tonight I went to my sister's high school basketball game toinght with my mom and lil sis then came home to have some dinner. I am currently watching The Biggest Loser with my dad and then I am gonna have a Strawberry Boost before going to bed!
Tomorrow morning I have a Nutritionist Appointment! I am actually looking forward to meeting with her since I was supposed to see her last Wednesday but I had to keep re-scheduling with her because she has been sick. My mom and I both have lots of questions for her and I can't wait to see what she has to say! I hope it all goes well.
Night chicas :)
