So, I had a little slip last night. I found myself having another snack...and then another...and another. And before I knew it, I had gone WAY overboard. =[ I was doing so well yesterday too, so I don't know what happened. As bad as I felt about it, I woke up this morning determined to not worry about it, and just focus on the day ahead of me. I've always loved the quote by The Format that says "If you fail, well then you fail, but not to us." I always tell my friend (who has an ED as well) that she would never fail to me. NEVER. And I know that no one is telling me that, but I tell myself that a slip is not a failure, it's just a bump in the road. And no one gets held up on a simple bump, now do they?
Also, Amy talked about her experience having to leave school a year ago (Amy, tell me if you want this taken out of my post!) and it was such a great reminder to me that something like that could happen to me at any moment. I get checked by the medical doctor here on a weekly basis, and if I go below the weight that I am at now, or if my heartrate is low they have permission to send me to the hospital in the city. I don't know what you think, but this is terrifying! I need to remind myself every day that I am still so far from being healthy, and that ED needs to stop telling me otherwise. But a note to Amy- stay strong. You're such a wonderful person, and "anniversaries" can be tough, I know they are for me, but look at where you are now and keep being such an amazing, smart, and healthy girl!
Before I forget though! Has anyone tried the pistachio Lara Bar? My school only has 4 flavors, this being one of them. And I think it sounds delicious, but they are a bit pricey so I would love opinions first!
I don't have many pictures today, I'm sorry! I did have fun fooling around with my Chobs earlier though (I just love nicknaming my food!) (oh, and I threw my vanilla chobs into the freezer to see what happens. Has anyone ever done this?!)
(how is this fat free?!?! I think the chobani company is lieing to us =P )
Just a warning to everyone- I have essays GALORE to do tonight, and blogs have distracted me one too many times, so if I don't respond to your comments/posts until tomorrow, that's why! I hope everyone has a great GREAT evening tonight. Take it easy, and enjoy every minute of it!
