I have been very busy nanying lately in this HOT summer weather!
I have been having yogurt messes because they are perfect for on the go and tasty obvs, especially these lil packets of Justin’s peanut butter!
Lovin’ pb crackers and sudoku puzzles. I am pretty sure I am addicted to these! They have been keeping me sane and busy while the kiddos are having down time during my 15 hour shifts 😮
Subway Turkey, swiss, lettuce, and tomato on wheat with pretzels and an apple.
I had a ham sandwich the other day and boy let me tell you I was not happy with it! I thought the ham was very salty (yuck!) and would have much rather prefered my turkey but we were all out but alas mom went grocery shopping today so we are now all stocked up.
Dinner while nannying last night. Italian chicken, corn on the cob, broccoli, and sweet potatoes that I made! I LOVE making my own meals now 🙂 It is a sense of accomplishment and a good feeling in my recovery!
Trader Joe’s salmon, pasta salad, broccoli, and a roll with butter.
BBQ on Sunday at the cousin’s house. If you haven’t already noticed from my posts this summer, I go to lots of cookouts and I LOVE it! That is what summer is all about. I had a cheeseburger along with some pasta salad and some chips not pictured.
Dinners have been going real well for me lately.
I was so proud of myself for this dinner because at previous cook outs this summer (when I wasn’t doing all that well in my recovery) I would get my food and then go up in the screen porch and eat by myself. Of course this was such an ED behavior. I just didn’t want my family looking at me and the food I was eating or not eating. I mean the whole concept of cookouts is to eat and mingle, right?!
But this past cookout my mom and I arrived later and everyone else already eaten. Uhh ohhh! So what was I gonna do, get my food and go up and eat alone? HELL NO! I was hungry and I was gonna get my food and sit down at the table by the pool and eat my dinner even though everyone else had finished eating and was currently talking. I don’t know what it was but something just hit me and I did what I wanted to do and not what ED wanted to do! I got my plate and sat down and got eating and talking, it felt great! Even though I saw my aunt and grandma look at what I was eating I knew that was expected and I don’t think those “helicopter” eyes are gonna go away from me anytime soon. But I know they are eyes of concern and love and they only want the best for me!!
