I have just been focusing on the present and that is what really keeps me going lately! The more and more I recover it has been getting easier and easier and I have less ED thoughts. I used to constantly think of food and when my next meal was going to be and what was I going to have etc. But now I don't think about food as much and I don't think too much about my next meal, I just take care of it when the time comes around. Because worrying about the future is gonna get me anywhere!
I have also gotten to be very flexible now a days with what and when I eat which is a huge step and I am so proud of for. I used to eat on a very rigid time schedule and I would wait until the exact minute to when I could eat, or should I say to when ED would allow me to eat. I now try to eat every 2 1/2 hours or so but if I am hungry before that then I will just EAT! No biggie! And then before I would always rush to eat if I was late and not following my time schedule, ED would totally get me going and I hated it. But now the timing of when I eat doesn't all that affect me. Sometimes I am not hungry for dinner around 7pm so I will wait longer and then other times if I am out and we eat at 6pm I am fine with that. Time doesn't really bother me anymore. I have learned to just go with the flow and everything really does work out and if it doesn't then you just work around to fix it.
So enough blabbin' I will now show you some of my eats lately ;)
Sushi!! I was totally craving it one night so I ran to TJ's to pick up some.
Strawberry Poppyseed & Chicken salad with baguette. Love this summery salad!
CHIPOTLE! Burrito bowl with rice, black beans, chicken, salsa, and cheese! Holy yum.
OMG! This might have been the best veggie pizza I ever had. It was topped with broccoli, tomato, onions, mushrooms, peppers, and ROASTED eggplant (which was soo delish) and cheese but not that much sauce. Could have used a bit more in my opinion. But overall it was yummay!
Asian Salmon Spinach salad from Ruby Tuesdays.
And of course summer cannot be complete without barbeques!! I must tell you I go to at least one just about every single weekend, no lie. My family loves getting together and I love it as well! We have so much fun
Here are just a few pics...
Well that is all I got here on this hot Monday evening. I am off to watch some reality tv...Bachelor Pad and Housewives of NJ. You know it ;) Then gotta hit the pillow early because I got a early day of nannying ahead of me tomorrow and it's gonna be a hot one!
