Hollah atchya and Happy FRIDAY! I hope you have been enjoying summer thus far because I know I have! I have been busy working, relaxing, and taking day trips, I think that is what summer is all about! Oh yes and of course I have been eatin’ good food as well 😉
Breakfast has of course been lots of yog messes! Since I nanny in the AM I tend to bring my breakfast meals with me and yogurt messes are perfect and easy to pack up.
Yesterday morning I broke open my new jar of Trader Joe’s Almond Butter!
Holy yum! This almond butter was very creamy which I love because I was able to drizzle it all over my yog mess and it tasted exactly like I was eating almonds!
Why haven’t I tried this AB before is beyond me! So I just had to have it again this morning 😉
I have been taking a lot of day trips recently which have been super fun! Last week I went to SIX FLAGS with my aunt, uncle, cousins, and sister. I knew it was going to be a very hot and long day filled with tons of walking so I made sure to pack snacks for the day. I had to keep myself fueled throughout the day.
pretzels, pear, almonds, Kashi Chocolate Caramel Crunchy! bar.
Lunch at the park was a turkey sandwich with a sweet granny smith apple and unpictured pretzels.
Yesterday afternoon I went to the Red Sox game with my dad 🙂 Even though they lost it was a great game and it was a beautiful day to spend in the ballpark!
Yawkey Way! Fenway Park is by far the greatest ballpark there is, hands down!

Lunch at the ballpark was a huge turkey wrap with cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes along with a bag of Miss.Vickie’s chips.
The other day I got a lil something something from Larabar! Even though the NEW flavors don’t come out until July they were kind enough to send me some early!! So excited to try them…Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip Brownie, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and Carrot Cake. Thank you so much Larabar 🙂
Since it is summertime you know what that means…lots and lots of barbeques. The past 3 weekends I have gone to different bbqs but I ain’t complainin’. After all it is sweet summertime 🙂
barbeque chicken wing, fruit salad, pasta salad, and a bun.
I tried this Eggplant Parmesan from Trader Joe’s.
I have never had eggplant parmesan before but it was good and I loved all of the cheesey goodness on top.
I also had yet another Trader Joe’s frozen meal. I think I am becoming quite addicted to TJ’s 😉 I forget what exactly this meal was called but it is a winner in my book. It is brown noodles mixed with tons of veggies and has a nice spicy kick to it.
It’s back…yes the Lemon Poppyseed & Chicken salad at Panera Bread. This salad just screams SUMMERTIME to me and I just knew I had to have it along with a fresh baguette.
I know a lot of you have been wondering how I am doing recovery wise. I will be honest with you and I am just doing OK. I have been meetin with my therapist weekly and my nutritionist every other week and I am working well with both of them which I am happy about! I can’t afford to keep living my life with ED. It is so NOT worth it and I hate the feeling of depriving myself, not recovering, and not being able to live my life 🙂 As my dad’s favorite motto to me lately has been “JUST DO IT!” and that is what I have been trying to do 🙂
I am off to get ready for the day and then I am going out to eat with my mom and Grammy yet again and then nannying later this afternoon!
Happy Friday and enjoy the weekend!
