While all of my friends have ben debating on what to give up for Lent whether it be facebook, alcohol, or chocolate, I have also been giving it great thought. But it really didn't take me any time to figure it out. I not only want to give this up for the next forty days until Good Friday but I want to give this up for life, and that would be my ED!
Last night my dad called to see how everything was going and how I was doing. I have been talking to eaither one or both of my parents each day since I got back to school on Monday. They are great support and they keep me going in the right direction. I am not only doing this for myself but also for them! I can't let them down this time again, they have done way too much for me :)
This morning for breakfast I had a yummy yogurt mess with Vanilla Brown Cow yogurt, Kashi Go Lean, a sliced banana, and Crazy Richard's creamy pb with milk on the side.
I did have a picture pre-mix up but I don't really know what happened to it? But I will leave you with these.As hard as it was this morning to drink my Boost along with my almonds, I did and enjoyed it! Take that ED. I win and you lose!
Since today is Ash Wednesday my dining hall is not serving meat anywhere on campus. We are a Catholic college, could ya tell?! I knew exactly what I was going to have...a veggie burger! I have heard great things about the veggie burgers here at the dining hall but never actually tried them myself, so today was the day!
I had a veggie burger with swiss cheese on wheat bread, Cheddar Pop Chips, a pear, and milk.
I tried the Chedddar Pop chips which were obviously good. I only two more bags left to try but then I got some coupons to use so no need to worry!
Alright so I must share some news with all of you! This afternoon after I got back from classes and ate lunch I got an e-mail from Karen at Health Services saying she didn't have any openings tomorrow so I should come in this afternoon to meet with her. This was so unexpected since I wasn't planning on meeting with her today. So I quickly got up and walked on over while calling my mom on the phone to tell her I was going to my appointment because I was super nervous. I just kept thinking about all of the possible worst things that could happen. I was nervous about my weight going down or them sending me home already after two days. I was a WRECK! I was totally psyching myself out. I have been doing everything I should be doing so really I shouldn't have been nervous, but yet I still was.
Once there in her office I started to cry :( I just wanted her to weigh me, do my vitals and blood pressure and be done with it. I took one huge deep breath before getting on the scale. Since I do a blind weigh-in I wasn't going to know if it was good or bad but when she put up her hand to give me a high five I started to cry again. I was just so happy! Then she checked my pulse rate and blood pressure and those were both within my parameters. OMG! You don't know how excited I was my appointment went well, now I just need to make sure every appointment each week goes as well as this one. I know need to keep reminding myself I can't take a break just because I did well for one week, I gotta keep going in the right direction :)
After I called my mom to tell her everything went well and she began to cry as well! She was so proud of me! I love her.
I am now off to do my service learning hours for the week at Girls Inc. But before I go I am going to have a snack to get me through til dinner. These girls have so much energy I am gonna need that snack to keep up with them!
Have a great Humpday :)
