I realized that I title most Friday posts either TGIF, or Thanks goodness it's Friday. Now that has changed because I've come up with a new phrase for TGIF to stand for! Tigger glows in florescents. I feel like I spelled that wrong, but oh well.
Again, thank you all for the support! I feel like I say that all the time but it's because you girls are just so amazing and give wonderful advice! The thing about coming to a compromise with my dad is that he doesn't really know I still have food issues. When I started recovery, I was so relieved that I didn't have to starve myself and overexercise anymore that I just.. ate, with no problem. There were a couple meals where you could tell that I was having trouble eating, but I have never flatly refused to eat something. And since I'm manipulative and plan a lot of the family meals, there isn't really an opportunity to see me have trouble eating. All the challenge foods I eat, I mentally prepare myself for so I know I can eat whatever it is. So to say the least, my dad would be very surprised if I said that I didn't feel comfortable eating his darn enchiladas and could I please eat a bite and then have just some salad instead? I have a feeling that this is going to happen anyway but the thought of it makes me want to bang my head against a brick wall. BANG!
Okay okay, ze eats. Breakfast was the last of the banana muffins :[, eggy doodle, apple and antioxidant oats. Blueberries, chopped almonds (plus 3 for garnish) and dark choco chips. Yum-o.
Lunch was usual PB sammich, yogurt, carrots and oatmeal bar. As part of my snack this afternoon, I had a big pile of lentil dip with whole wheat cheddar bunnies. I have pretty much been eating this dip non-stop since I made it. My dad and sister haven't eaten any, possibly because of the color, but that means more for me!
Din dins was rainbow chard with figs, garlic, pine nuts and feta. Dried figs and feta are two of my favorite foods, so I was really excited for this one. From looking at the other reviews, I was expecting that it would knock my socks off but it didn't. Maybe it was the chard? I picked this recipe because I though chard was in season now, but no, that's kale. I can't keep it straight. It was pretty good though and I'll try to make it again this summer. I put mine over smart taste pasta.
I am so happy that it's the weekend! I pretty much only had one and a half days of school this week but that was more than enough. I've got ballet tomorrow, so hopefully the mirror-body checking stuff will go alright. Hope you all enjoy your Saturdays!
