Stronger and Stronger

Well hello friends! How have you all been doing since the last time I posted?! I hope wonderful 🙂 Can you believe it is already the middle of Novemeber and Thanksgiving is a week from Thursday? Crazyyy!
Since I all now you are all just dying to know how I am doing, I will tell you and the answer is FANTASTIC! I know I say this all the time but I honestly can’t say it enough, I have just been living and loving my life without ED. There is so much more to life than ED, and each day I am still getting stronger and stronger and I love it!

But anyways on to the eats! I have been switchin’ it up a bit because (honestly I thought I would never say this) but I am kind of getting sick of yogurt messes. I mean when I was deep into my ED I would just always have them and I would say I loved having them everyday and didn’t mind, but now I am just like NO! I am sick of them sometimes and want to eat something different and what I want!

Wheat english muffin with pb, fruit, vanilla yogurt, and milk. Loved mixing the different flavors of fruit with my yogurt 🙂

 Wheat english muffin, pb, banana, yogurt, and milk.

But of course I have still been having my yogurt messes 😉


Hummus with pretzels, carrots, and broccoli for dippage purposes with…Chocolate Soy Milk. So good!

Pasta e fagioli soup, salad, and a cool lookin’ 6-Grain roll.
Soup, salad, and breadsticks…Olive Garden anyone?! Speaking of Olive Garden I actually went there for dinner with my roomie and her family on Saturday which was a big step because the last time I went their a little over a year ago for my mom’s birthday it was a nightmare and since it used to be (and still is) my favorite restaurant I wanted to make this one a good experience and I did!
The other night I tried my dining halls so called “Marathon Rollwith nuts, carrots, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds. Pretty cool, huh? Well it was pretty tasty too! Something different too that I haven’t ever heard of or seen before!
You are probably wondering what this big machine is in my dining hall. Well it is our new MooBella Ice Cream Machine we got this semester! I love my dining hall.

So I decided to finally give it a try and make my own…White Chocolate Raspberry! Well it kind of melted and then I frooze it so it looks weird in the cup, hah. But anyways that’s besides the point, it was overall pretty good except for the fact that I only got ONE sinle chocolate chip! Pshh. But I am defs gonna try the other flavors as well, I heard the Cake Batter is good 😉


But nothing compares to all of my frozen yogurt I have. I am now obsessed with “froyo” ever since my roomie has it all the time and our coffee shop has yummy froyo with all different toppings as well.

My all time favorite…chocolate frozen yogurt with Reese’s pieces. There is this one particular girl who works at the coffee shop that my roomie and I love because she makes the best froyo because she puts a decent amount of candies on both the bottom and top! So we always get excited when she is working…yeah we are weird and we know it but who cares!

For one of my nursing classes we are having a Promotion Fair and I decided to do mine on, well of course…Eating Disorders since I know a lot about it and probably could have done this project with my eyes closed! Anyways, I just whipped up this baby the other night and I think it came out pretty darn good if I do say so myself 😉 I did all sorts of stuff like how to love your body, stay active, get incolved, have a healthy relationship with food etc. and I also got Dove Chocolate Promises with the affirmations in the wrappers to give away to the audience!

So I will leave you now with yet another mirror pic of me. Hah.

Gotta go get some froyo and watch Cake Boss! Night everyone 🙂

Oh and p.s. I forgot to tell you that I am now at a weight were my nurse practitioner is finally allowing me to start incorporating exercise back into my dialy routine!! But we have both agreed for me to wait until Thanksgiving break for me to meet with my personal trainor at home to help me get back into exercising! I am so excited and I can’t wait to get started and I will be sure to post about it next time!

  1. Good for you!! you look like you're glowing, I feel a sense of freedom for you. Stay positive, you look great! Oh and I can say I am suuuuper jealous of your dining hall! I want your dining hall in my kitchen lol

  2. That project that you did looks so awesome! Well done 🙂 As for switching up your breakfasts, I can totally relate. Sometimes I don't want oatmeal and I just want something simple like cereal or something different like pancakes mmm.Well done for doing so well! xxx

  3. Hi Jenna!I currently eat Luna bars for every meal, and I actually like it. It reminds of how you felt about yogurt messes when you were deep in your ED. I hope that I can someday be like you and actually desire other foods throughout the day. Your blog gives me so much hope. You just sounds so joyful about food, which I hope I can be someday. It seems so impossibly out of reach, but I thank you for sharing that it is possible!-Emily

  5. Hey Jenna this is my first time commenting but i have been reading foevs and just wanted to say u r such an inspiration!I have a question for ya, is the amount ur eating now to gain weight or will u continue eating this much to maintain normal weight too?i was normal sized, now i lost 10 pounds through working out 3 times a week and eating healthier, but my mom wants me to gain the weight back. do u think the amount you eat now is how much a normal person should eat(with a normal metabolism) or how much a weight gainer should eat?
