Well hello love pies! It feels great to be posting again!! Hope you all have been fabuloso since I last posted as I have been busy busy since then. This summer I am working as a nanny and I didn't waste anytime starting my job as I started it the day after I got home from college last Thursday!
Where are you workin' this summer?!
So you could pretty much say that I am now obsessed with oats ;) I mentioned it last week but I just wanna show ya how much I am.
I had some Oats in a Jar (OIAJ) which is not like me because since I am the queen of yogurt messes I tend to make yogurt messes in a jar, but not this time!This was just a packet of oats cooked with water in the micro, then mixed with a banana in an almost empty pb jar, and then all shooken up. I must say that is the KEY to good oats in a jar. After you have everything you want in your jar, put the top on and shake it up to get it all mixed up. I swear, give it a try! It will not disappoint.finally took a picture as I was half way into it!Need I tell you how good it was?But it was not a sad morning to let that pb jar go in the recycle bin because I had a brand new jar waiting to be opened the next morning! I am also obsessed with Skippy Natural Creamy pb because it is soo good and creamy. This pb is so creamy and delicious when I eat it by the spoon I need to have a gulp of milk to wash it all down!Peanut Butter & Jelly oats!Maple Sugar & Cinnamon Oats topped wtih banana and Natural Skippy creamy pb with a glass of milk.I have been snackin' on many Kind Bars, as my favorite flavor is the Fruit & Nut Delight.Because I am a Subway kind of girl I have of course already been there since I got home having the usual turkey & swiss cheese on whole wheat with an apple, pretzels, and milk.
Are you a fan of Subway or D'Angelos?!
turkey & cheese panini with pear, pretzels, and milk.Lunch on the go. Can we just look at the ooey gooey cheese melting out? Holy yummm! Also can we look at how I managed to burn this beaut but none the less it was still delish. A lil burnt sandwich never hurt anyone!
Okay so you can also say I am quite obsessed with Panera Bread (as if you couldn't already tell). I know it's a problem and it needs to stop...actually hell no it does not ;) Who am I kidding? This would be the Salmon Mediterranean Salad with a baguette on the side while watching Miss. USA.
Now I know a lot of you are probably asking yourself why I let myself watch Miss. USA this past Sunday night as it could be quite triggering for me as I recover and I understand where you are coming from but let me explain.
Pre-ED I would have no problem watching these shows and pagaents with all the beautiful women flaunting their rockin' bodies as I wish I could be like them but then again I was quite satisfied with my body back then and never had a problem with food or anything! I was happy and healthy and loved my life :)
But now as I recover from an ED I still don't have a problem watching these shows with all the beautful woman. I don't find it all that triggering but I definitely watch the show in a different way as I did pre-ED. I now seet these women as beautiful and healthy. I noticed that NONE of the women competing in Miss.USA were ultra skinny or stick thin. They all carried healthy weight on them and looked great. But most importantly they looked happy in their bodies. It really opened my eyes and showed me that in order to be a beautiful healthy young women you do NOT have to be super skinny.
Now these are just my thoughts and opinions I wanted to share and I know everyone alse has their own! You may agree or disagree with me but that is what I think!
Miss. USA 2010 Rima Fakih from Michigan.
I am really interested on what your thoughts are about Miss. USA. Do you find it triggering to you?! Do you like this pageant or not?!
Now onto more eats... This would be a Rustic Super Veggie Pizza topped with generous amounts of broccoli, mushrooms, peppers, onions, tomatoes, and olives. Can you say holy yum?! I haven't had pizza in so long and it was just what I was craving last Friday night. I had two big slices to fill up my tummy for dinner :) Another dinner was a bowl of elbow pasta with marinara sauce topped with a piece of breaded chicken.
Well that is all I got for ya today on this rainy cold Wednseday. Summer weather is comin' tomorrow and I could not be more excited! Hello 70 and 80 degree weather!
