What a week it has been

Thursday, November 4, 2010

What a week it has been! This past weekend was HALLOWEEKEND and it was one of the best weekends I have had in awhile!! Friday night my sister came up to visit me as well as my roomie's lil sis and we had a great night :) I was glad my sister finally was able to visit me since she has a crazy schedule. I was an 80's workout girl Friday night.Then on Saturday I was "risky business" and I went to visit my best friend at her school for the night and had a blast! I am defs going to visit her soon ;) Now this was the friend I mentioned before and we definitely had a hard time during my ED but now I must say things are right where I want them just like they were before!And they have a Dunkin's on campus...how cool Nothin' sounded better the next morning than a blueberry iced coffee with an egg & cheese on an english muffin with a banana. I was happy because I didn't bring any food with me and just went with the flow and ate what was available to me. I was missin' my AM milk, but I made sure to just have it later on at dinner, no biggie!Snackies.I have come to the conclusion I am addicted to hummus...it's official.Big ole salad topped with lettuce, maccaroni salad, green peppers, 3 bean salad, cucumbers, toasted corn, and wasabi peas with grilled chicken and a dinner roll. Filled my tummy up quite well!Chocolate Frozen Yogurt with Reese's peanut butter cups.
I have been switching up my evening snacks rather than having Boosts every night. I am also trying to wean myself off of the Boosts soon and eat real food rather than having to rely on Boosts. Just tryin' on some of my 'fits now that I don't look emaciated in them and look somewhat decent ;) Sooo as I mentioned in my previous post I said how I did not have my weigh-in last week and I got the week off. Now this was a huge step because I have never gone a week without my weekly weigh-in appointment, and last week was the first! So I had my appointment this past Wednesday and things went fabulous!! My weight increased and I am finally at a weight were I am going to be able to start incorporating exercise back again, just a little at a time! I have not started yet but we are going to see how I do next week and then go from there. I mean I have yet to drop any weight at ALL since being back at school as I have only going up so I don't think next week will be any different!

Have a great weekend and I will keep you updated :)

Well I am off to bed and it is FRIDAY tomorrow and I am just lovin' my new healthy life!! I can honestly say I AM LIVING MY LIFE :)

Jenna! Keep going, but you look so much healthier and more importantly, you look HAPPY! Keep going! Imagine how good you will feel when you meet your goal :) You are doing so amazing. Something really clicked this year. Keep the momentum going and you are gonna be even better than you are right now. Those eats look delicious too, by the way. Amen for going with the flow, not panicking over something unplanned. That's what life is all about, rolling with the punches. :)
