A Successful Day

Just so you all know, the only reason I know how to spell success is because of Full House. I remember when Danny was teaching Stephanie a mnemonic to learn to spell it, and he said "Double the c, double the s, and you have success". So there you have it.

I did get a lot accomplished today. I read (When We Were Romans by Mattew Kneale), practiced my pointe for ballet, practiced cello and piano, played Wii, and did some homework. I also made some pom poms out of yarn to create this little buddy:


Breakfast featured another one of my banana fig muffins, which are just as good the second day.

For lunch, I was craving soup like made so I heated up some minestrone made by my homegirl Amy. I had half a grilled cheese with cheddar for dipping purposes. I also had carrots, an Dannon natural yogurt and a chocolate brownie zbar. Perfect lunch.
For dinner, I made Scottish Borders Rumbledethumps from Recipezaar. I've made this recipe several times and I love it sooo much! Like mashed potatoes but better, and substansial enough to be a meal on it's own. But along with it I also had a wheat roll with butter and an apple.
ED hasn't made much of an appearance today, which is unusual. When I was playing Wii, he started going "Yes yes yes keep playing! You're burning calories now, you don't need to eat today." But then I thought "Nooooooooooo I'm hungry for soup so haha." I actually do have arguments in my head that go something like that.

I have to go to bed rather early tonight to get myself back onto my regular sleeping schedule, considering that school starts again on Monday :[

keep fighting ed. i can totally relate to arguing with him in my head he tells me one thing, and my healthy voice is trying to shine through and tell me the right/true thing. keep listening to the healthy voice because ed is destructive and a demon.
great eats that muffin looks so delicious.

No no no, Amy is myy homegirl, hehe! I do loove her products :]]

I'm so glad you were able to listen to your body's cravings for soup (and what better a way to nourish your body than through delicious, hearty soup?) When you get in the habit of listening very carefully, we can see that our bodies are actually very, very efficient in letting us know what it needs!

Hope you get some sleep, girly, and best of luck in school tomorrow! I know you'll do amaazing :]]

Dommi said...

P.S. Love the bunny you made!! I think he (or she?) needs a name :]
