Happy Thursday! Friday is tomorrow and then the weekend is here :) Any fun plans for this upcoming weekend? Well for me, I am not exactly sure what I am doing! I can't decided if I should go home or stay at school for the weekend. Since it is Superbowl weekend my cousins are having a party like they always do and it is so much fun and I really don't wanna miss all the fun! Plus, Monday was my lil sister's birthday and I wasn't home so we are celebrating more this weekend! But I don't know since it is my first weekend back at school, would it be better for me to stay at school or go home for the weekend? Any suggestions?!
So I have notice A LOT of bloggers doing Q & A lately so I thought I would do some for you all too ;) So here are some questions you lovely bloggers have recently asked me. Here it goes!
Julia from Taste of Living asked if I was still eating my snacks between my snacks since I am not posting them?
The answer to this is YES! Just because I am back at school does not mean everything is fine and I can stop following my meal plan! As hard while at school I still stick to my meal plan, eating 3 meals with 3 snacks. It is just while I am at school, posting EVERYTHING I eat is hard because I am a lot busier here at school! This week is very busy as I am adjusting back to school and figuring out my eating schedule with my classes, but hopefully next week once everything has settled down a bit I will have more food pics for ya ;)
Sarah from Sprinkle of Cinnamon asked if I ever thought of switching up my breakfast meals?
Although I LOVE my yogurt messes for breakfast as you all know since I have one practically every morning, I have thought of swtiching it up! It is just that when I find something that is working for me in recovery I hate to switch it up because if it is working then why switch it, ya know?! But I know this is probably not that normal to have the same thing over every day but I have had other breaskfast meals before like overnight oats, oats, breakfast cookie, and cereal. I hope soon I will be able to venture off and have other breakfast meals again.
Although I do try to switch up the ingredients in my yogurt messes with using different yogurt brands, cereals, and nut butters, but I always have my favorite bananas ;) I have tried other fruits in my messes but I always come back to the bananas!
Laura from Coffee and Hope asked me if I eat my meals in the dining hall with my friends or if I eat alone in my room?
This is a great question Laura and I am glad you asked! If you have been reading my blog for awhile you may have noticed towards the end of last semester (as I was slipping) I was eating ALL of my meals in my room, which is such an ED behavior. My mom as well as my friends at school were noticing I wasn't eating in the dining hall. I knew at the time this was not normal but I didn't feel comfortable eating with them in the dining hall, I would go with them at meal times but always bring my food back to my room. As I look back at it now that was SO weird of me to do and such an ED behavior! I was also eating at such odd times, like I was eating dinner really late like 7:30pm ever night.
While I was at home my mom, my nutritionist, and myself talked about this and said this was an ED behavior and not normal. We discussed how I need to get back on a normal eating schedule while at school so I can be able to eat with my friends in the dining hall. So my goal this semester is to eat in the dining hall with my friends! I have been trying very hard to stick to my goal and I have been eating with my friends as much as I can for mostly lunch and dinner though. Since I have all early classes every morning I always have breakfast in my room during the weekdays.
Thank you for asking me those questions girls and I hope I answered them for ya. If anyone else has any other questions for me...ask away!
Have a great Thursday night :)
