Did ya miss me?

Monday, April 12, 2010

HEY!! Alright, so first of all I am ALIVE! I went on a much needed blog hiatus and it was just what I needed ;) As I have mentioned before I was feeling obligated to post everyday and I thought if I didn't post I would be letting myself down and all of you! I would be a failure if I didn't post or something bad might happen. But I think A LOT of that had to do with my ED! I think ED was the one telling me to post everyday and not me. So last Thursday was when I decided I was NOT going to post! It was a CHANGE and I realized nothing bad happened as a result! I felt good I didn't cave into ED!

But I must tell you my lil vacation from blogging was great. I mean I totally did miss it, but it was such a nice break to just LIVE and not worry about blogging each and every single day! Plus, I was really busy with school work this past week so I really didn't have time to post and why put more pressure on myself to post when I do NOT have the time?! That just does not make any sense. School work is definitely more important than blogging each day!

But now that I finally have the time to post, I WANT to post, and I don't feel obligated...I am POSTING :) It should be something I like to do whenever I want and I should NEVER feel obligated!

So I will share with you some of my eats lately. I didn't go so to say "gung ho" on my picture taking this past week. If I wanted to snap a pic, I would. But if not, then I didn't! Simple as that :)

Breakfast meals have looked a lot like this...
yog mess in a DCD jarI mean it was alright ;) But it was a sad morning when I said good-bye to this beauty. We sent some good breakfast moments together! But now I get to open up a new jar...CINNAMON RAISIN SWIRL :)Kashi Mighty Bites and Mighty Maplemixed up...only the best way to go!Kashi Go Lean and DCDOne of the best breakys I had this past week!Yup that would be a PB & J plus banana sandwich!!Fruit & Nut Delight Kind barI also tried out this new Naked juice...Peach Guava Smoothie w/ coconut water! I have been drinking these throughout the day instead of always water. They are quite good!

Lunches have been quite similiar to this...turkey wrap, pretzels, apple, and milkWith this lunch I had some apple sauce!Aka great dippage for pretzels...as well as on top of my turkey wrap! Call me weird but they were both quite tasty ;)more turkey (tomato) wraps
veggie burgers

I must admit have a new addiction to HUMMUS!
These have been perfect for an on-the-go snack! Super convenient and obviously delish :)


One of the best dinners I had was this...
Pasta with arugula, white beans, and walnuts in some kind of yummy sauce with Italian bread with buttah and chocolate milk. Very satisfying but filling meal!I have been consuming many Creamy Chocolate milkshakes as an evening snack. Of course chilled in the freezer for a few hours to make it cold and slushy!I have been sippin' on hot tea lately as well.And I have been tackling my TO DO List! I was a very busy girl last week which was a result of me not having a lot of time to blog. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE when professors pile on tons of work in the last few weeks of the semester!

Do your professors do that as well?!

I must also tell you for my English class this semester I am reading Eat, Pray, Love and it is so so good, I legit can't put it down!

Well I posted today because I WANTED TO and not because I felt obligated! I also definitely missed it! But I do not feel obligated to post each day and that has been a great feeling :)

Have a great Thursday night!!

I LOVE Eat, Pray, Love! I also want to see the movie- I was in India the same time as Julia Roberts was to film it!
And I'm also happy to see you switched up your breakfast :), looks delicious!

Lindsay Cotter said...

We did miss you! Looks like you had some new eats that look AWESOME. By the way, I love dipping everything in applesauce as well. Yum!

Alexia said...

Please say that was sarcasm about loving when professors assign EVERYTHING at the end?

I've been wanting to try that naked flavor! In fact there are so many I want to try, but they are so expensive! I'm going to have to wait for a good deal to go on a spree of new flavor trying. I really want to read eat pray love. That's so cool you get to read it for a class and enjoyment hah. Believe me girl, my teachers do the same thing. It's like I won't have anything to do and then BAM everything is due at once. I have 3 projects right now and I'm not looking forward to them. Procrastination is the devil.

Meg said...

i'm happy all is well with you and i'm happy to challeneged your ED to make a change! you are totally right, you should only blog if you want and have the time :)

LOVE IT! So glad you are back because you want to. You will notice that I post when I want to too. School is too stressful and just takes over (and it should!).

I've tried the Hummus on-the-go containers! It's good of course but I found there was definelty not enough pretzels, or too much Hummus, depending on how you look at it! I read Eat Pray Love a while back and absolutly loved it. Did you know they're making it into a movie starring Julia Roberts?!

determinedtoshine said...

welcome back! so glad your blogging to what fits in with what YOU want :)

that pretzel/hummus snackpot is such a great idea! they should sell them in the uk.

katie said...

Jenna - why do you read other people's blogs and comment things like "wow - looks delish" when its stuff you would NEVER eat. You always say you dont know what to eat but you DO know....try something that looks "delish"

Sara said...

Hi Jenna! I just discovered your blog and can completely relate to your story. Recovering from an ED is so challenging, but the process of healing makes you strong!

I just started blogging, and would love it if you'd stop by my blog and say hi!
