What I Ate Wednesday Posted On A Thursday
I wrote this throughout the day yesterday but forgot to post it #disclaimer.
I woke up this morning feeling less sick than I had since Friday, which was a blessing. I didn’t know what to do with the extra energy so I did a quick workout, caught up with my little sister, and studied for my midterm. Right after the workout I had a good breakfast of a cup of oats with cherries, sliced banana, and peanut butter.
Thinking about not wanting to spend money on food, I had lunch at 11:15 before I headed out the door, which was, for some reason what I wanted, a bowl of shreddies with almond milk and peanut butter.
I had a few thoughts on the bus that “this was too much food for a morning,” “too much fat for before class,” but they didn’t last long and I was able to focus on studying.
After the midterm (eh), I met with Laura where we had hilarious and awesome conversations like always. I had a couple handfuls of almonds for a snack while we sat there.
After running into a friend I hadn’t seen in a while, I met Johnny and we walked to his house together to do the tiniest amount of homework before giving up and just spending time together.
By 6:30, I headed back to school and met Maddie and Bethany for a dinner date at the university’s restaurant. I had a pad Thai that I’ve had there before that is challenging because it is REALLY oily, and this time I had a bad stomachache after which made thoughts worse. I prayed and thanked God for the meal and He brought me to peace in thankfulness for the food, in His rest that it wouldn’t harm me and the thoughts would only lead me away from Him. I spent the night at Johnny’s, watching the second Hobbit movie (so good) with him, his brother, and sweet best friend, and we stayed up a while and I listened to them share memories and tell stories. Often listening is the best position to be in, and I was so happy just to do that, hearing about all these important things to them.
I am thankful for every downfall and bad thought because at the end of the day they are only reaffirming that the enemy’s hold on me must go, I only want more of Christ, and in Him I can overcome any battle for His purposes.
