Yes that is right, you read my post title correctly…I HATE shopping. Especially clothes shopping when I have an eating disorder…it is no fun at ALL. I will get more on this later.
Breakfast this morning featured some new cereal, Nature’s Path Optimum Strawberry & Yogurt! This cereal had pieces of strawberries and yogurt clusters, although I could only really taste the strawberries (I think my sister picked all the yogurt pieces out to eat!)
In my yogurt mess I had Yoplait Greek yogurt, 1 cup Nature Path’s Strawberry & Yogurt cereal, and a sliced banana topped with Crazy Richar’d’s creamy peanut butter with a glass of milk on the side.I LOVE how much the natural sunlight can make such a difference on the photos! The sunlight is my new friend 🙂
After breaky I actually snuggled back into my bed for a bit as if nine hours of sleep wasn’t enough 😉 But hey a girls gotta catch up on her sleep while at home!
I then got myself outta bed to shower and get ready for the day. After I was ready I had a little morning snack of a Vanilla Boost and a Nut Delight Kind bar. Omg, remember how last time I tried this bar for the first time a few days ago I said it was very hard? Well today I swear the bar was even harder! I don’t know what is up with that?! I really do like the combination of nuts and the touch of honey the bar has but I do not like how it almost breaks my teeth. Alright Jenna that might be a bit of exageration, but ya get the point! Maybe the next bar I try will be a bit softer?
Then my my two sisters, my mom and I were off to the mall! Now don’t let this post title fool you becuse I am a MAJOR shopping! But ever since ED I have not really been all that excited about clothes shopping I mean I have worked in retail in all and love clothes but ever since ED I hate buying clothes for myself because they usually don’t look good on me or they don’t fit me right. Now this afternoon while I was at the mall I was very excited to do some shopping because I have a LOT of gift cards from Christmas and all the summer clothes are out and they are all super cute, I want them all. But then I realized as the warmer weather comes I am not gonna be able to hide my body underneath my sweatshirts and sweatpants. I am going to have to get rid of them and wear summer clothes. But do I really wanna be walking around in shorts and tanks looking like a skeleton?! Ummm…I think NOT! So it was very frustrating knowing I couldn’t buy ANY summer clothes this afternoon because I would look like a freak in them 😦 So it really hit me hard while shopping that if I want to buy these cute summer clothes and look good in them I NEED to recover and gain weight! End of story.
We had lunch at the mall and I got a turkey & swiss cheese sub from D’Angelos with a bag of Baked Lays chips and I also had a milk jug that went unpictured. Before we left for the mall I made a goal for myself that I was not going to bring my own food to the mall and that I was going to eat what was there. I need to learn to adjust to certain conditions wherever I am. I must say I did complete my goal by not bringing my own food and I was proud of myself for getting CHIPS instead of bringing my own pretzels. Although they were still baked lays they were still chips! Chips are still one of my fear foods because I typically think of them as junk food. So I kinda think of that as a lil change! But I definitely should have gotten something else with this lunch and I was kinda disappointed with myself that I didn’t 😦This afternoon I had one of my favs, a Chocolate Chip Clif Bar. My mom and I went out to visit my Grammy because she just gotten back from Florida this past week and I had to interview her for a Nursing paper I have! It was nice to see her after she spent over a month in the sunshine state! Can you say jealous?! Dinner tonight was a big bowl of pasta with one huge meatball and a glass of milk. I made sure to get those carbs in 😉
Well right now my two sisters are trying to convince me to drive them somewhere because they are bored! They are all wired up right now! Later on I am going to have a Chocolate milkshake!
So buhhh byeee for now and I will catch ya on the flip side! Have a good one 😉
