This is going to be a short one! I have class until 4:45, then need to squeeze dinner, the gym, AND a shower in before 7 when I'm going to volunteer at a homeless shelter until 10:30! Tuesdays are so crazy!
First things first. Despite the fact that my last almond butter experience ended on a not-so-hot note, I decided to give the free packet of maple almond butter that I got from Starbucks a shot. And you know what? It wasn't half bad. It was no PEANUT BUTTER, but it will definitely be going on my options list.
(this picture doesn't do my snack any justice.)
A few points I want to make and questions I want to ask. Then I'm off!
1. How do you guys manage to take pictures of all of your meals? I eat all of mine in the dining hall and I just can't figure out a way to take pictures but I would really love to include meals on here! Any hints?
2. I decided to buy another LaraBar yesterday, and picked up a Coca Mole one, without realizing that this isn't just cocoa...but has a kick to it as well! I haven't tried it yet, but I was wondering if anyone else has.
3. Over this past break, I went to visit my grandmother and we got to talking about my father. He visits her every Saturday and ends up staying and talking with her for a good 3 hours or so. Well, on this particular day my grandma decided to share with me one of the things her and my dad talk about- which was me. And not really ME per say, but rather how proud he was of me. I have been emailing him a lot lately, and always end the email with an "I love you" which is something that we don't really say a lot in my family. I wish we did, but it has just never been our thing. So to hear that my father was TRULY proud of me, and loved that I included an "I love you" at the end of every email really made me smile like it was nobodies business! Ever since then, when ED begins trying to control me, I tell him "No ED. I want to make my dad proud. I want to think clearly and beat this so I will not let my father down!" I want to beat this for me. I want to beat this for him. I want to beat this for EVERYONE I come into contact with, because no one deserves any of the effects of ED- No. One.
