Evening y'all! Hope your Thursday went swell :)
I am still heading in the right direction even after my appointment which went well yesterday.I just keep reminding myself I need to continue to do this and I cannot stop here. There are no more taking breaks! Doing well for one week is NOT recovery, it is a lot more than that!
This morning I had my first Microbiology test which I was kinda nervous for because it is a hard course. But I went into the test feeling confident and I already got our results back and I overall I was satisfied with my score :)
But the worst part about the test was how I had a major headache :( Right after the test was over I immediately grabbed some lunch and then came back to my room and took some Advil and layed down for a bit.
Lunch was turkey and swiss cheese wheat wrap with pretzels, an apple, and milk.
After lunch, a lil nap, and a snack I went to the mall with two of my girlfriends and then met up with the other girls for dinner.
One thing I am currently having a hard time dealing with is the times I eat. Like this afternoon I had a snack at 3:30 and then two hours later I was already eating dinner. I feel like I am always eating :/
When I am at home my eating schedule is a bit more flexible! I tend to eat every two and a half hours which I like because when the time comes around I am usually hungry. But while at school my schedule has changed with classes and such so therefore my eating schedule has changed as well. I just keep reminding myself it doesn't really matter whether I eat my dinner at 5:30 or 7:30 because I am going to have to eat it anyways regardless of the time. You know what I mean?
And I wanted to let you know tonight was my fourth night in a row eating in the dining hall with my girls! I am so proud of myself because towards the end of the semester last year I would never eat with them, I would always bring my dinner back to my room and eat alone. Eating in the dining hall with my friends is SO much fun and I love it! I look forward to it each day. I honestly don't know what I was doing last semester, clearly I was NOT thinking as I was so stuck in my ED. This might not seem like a big deal to you, but for me it is a really big step and I am very proud of myself :)
Do you ever get stressed out about eating meals/snacks so close together?!
