Today I was out all day, and I did wonderful things with even more wonderful people.
Breakfast. My day started with an early alarm. I was exhausted, but excited to meet up with Daniella, Jake, and Kodie for breakfast at my work! We bussed to Cora, and had a great time. I drank a bunch of black coffee and had an egg in a skillet with veggies home fries, and plain rye toast.
Snack? Daniella, Kodie and I bussed from Cora to Starbucks, where I had a venti soy cappuccino, and ate all my foam with the help of a green straw, thank-you very much. Kodie, Daniella and I had an awesome time together as we always do.
Dinner Number 1. From Starbucks, I walked to the mall to meet up with my friend, Nour. Nour is one of those beautiful and rare sort of people, and I am very lucky to know her. Catching up was fantastic! I bought a really cute new blouse and we walked and talked for hours. Before I knew it, it was dinner time, and I knew I hadn’t eaten nearly enough for before dinner. When Nour left, my friend Zoe picked me up in her fantastic truck, and we dined at one of my favourite restaurant, The Works. I got a veggie burger with avocado, salsa, eggplant, and onions with broccoli.
Dinner Part 2? Snack? I don’t know. After great conversation and some car jams with Zoe, I came home just in time for Masterchef, and also very hungry. In order to get calories in, and also because it’s delicious, I made 2 banana ice cream with cacao powder, melted dark chocolate, dates, and peanut butter. It was delicious! After Masterchef, Sara came over and we chatted exuberantly and excitedly about our beach day round 2 tomorrow! I am so excited already.
Bedtime Snack(?) At around 10:30, Daniella texted me wanting to do something, so we picked up Jake and Kodie and literally just chilled together, talking and laughing and skipping in the park. I am blessed, beyond blessed to have these people, each of them friends I saw today and so many more. When I got home at 1:45 am, I knew I still needed more food for the day, and my grumbling stomach wasn’t all I needed to know that! I made a potato and grabbed some celery sticks and slathered both with peanut butter.
Today was filled with good people, life-changing and life-long memories. Did I freak about how my food wasn’t “structured?” Did I stress about when’s and what’s? A little bit of both. But was I present with my friends, happy, and excited about each new adventure? 110%. That is my definition of recovery. Today was about friends, not food– akthough, I certainly thank the yummy food for fueling me for fun with my friends.
