WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY
Today was a smiley day.
That sounds so cheesy, but it really was.
There’s so much to be happy about. There’s never a reason to be sad if you think about it. God’s got a plan that will always prevail… Jesus already overcame the grave… that’s kind of it. Yup.
Today’s eats are I think a lot more normalized than they have been the past few months. Really haven’t felt focused on food or food thoughts the past bit at all really… this is only dangerous in that I never really have much of an appetite, so it has caused me to lose some weight, but genuinely in a way that I’ve just been listening to my body and not my disorder– not really focused on listening to my body, just sort of eating.
Today, that looked like waking and spending some time in the Word and prayer, then following my growling tummy to the kitchen to make baked strawberry oats with homemade cacao peanut butter for breakfast. It’s 100% natural, sugar free, but amazingly sweet and my all time favourite breakfast.
Just before I headed out the door with Laura, I had a big handful of baby carrots with some peanut butter.
I absolutely adore this lady. Laura has experienced a mental illness that was very debilitating and also caused her to lose weight, but was nothing like an eating disorder. It’s crazy how much we can relate without being triggering toward one another. We used to talk so much about our disorders, but now it’s all laughs and dream talk when we’re together and it’s SO GOOD. We found a new coffee shop, skipped around like maniacs, and moseyed around a beautiful park. It was a perfect day.
At around 4:30 I met Chloe for coffee at Starbucks, as we’ve literally been texting for two weeks like “are you free this day?” Never finding a time that worked for both of us. Chatting and laughing and catching up endlessly in Starbucks over a soy cappuccino was perfect. After coffee and the perfect time with Chloe I had my eye exam and they said my contacts will come in in no more than 2 weeks! I am so excited and feel so blessed by these because I am literally half blind. The doctor said “you don’t wear contacts? What? What can you see?” And he told me that I have a stigmatism since I last came in and that’s why my current glasses give me a headache… go to your eye exams yearly, peeps, moral of the story.
I was really really hungry when I got home and I made my fav dinner: a chicken breast, steamed broccoli, and a sweet potato with peanut butter. Along with another heap of baby carrots and a heap of spinach.
It’s pretty late now and I just finished eating, so I’m going o program my camera, spend some time with the Lord and my fam, and read a bit I think. Hope you all had a beautiful smiley day and prayers going into whatever God’s leading you to next.
