I hate word verification!!!

Ack, I hope this problem with word verification gets fixed soon! I've only been able to comment on about three Blogger blogs today because whenever I click publish, a window pops up that says "loading" but never does load, which keeps my comment from getting published.

Breakfast featured a simple but delicious combination of oats topped with half a banana (didn't have time to micro it!), bluebs, and dark chocolate chips.

No picture of my almond-y AM snack as it was scarfed down in the locker room. For lunch, I tried a peach passion down under Wallaby yogurt. Yay, another score for Wallaby! Usually I don't like fruit on the bottom yogurt too much because the "fruit" is actually more like overly sweet syrup. This was nice though because the peaches weren't sweetened and they were in chunks so the yogurt had nice texture.

For my after school snack, I had a bowl of natural popcorn, and plain yogurt w/ half a banana and blueberries. I also had two spoonfuls of Better N' Peanut Butter. This has been sitting in my pantry since last May or so, when I was still restricting. I never got around to eating it because first, it was too high carb for me to eat. Then, I started gaining weight and it became too low cal! But I've been seeing it pop up on a bunch of blogs lately so I figured I'd try it. It was good. But sure didn't taste like PB! More like PB mixed with jelly, or coffee. I think I may have to eat it in ways other than straight up on the spoon.

Dinner had to be eaten in the car between cello and therapy. I had a block of silken tofu going bad in the fridge and was craving quinoa. So I cooked up 1/4 c quinoa and meanwhile made a quarter of CCV's quiche soup. When the quinoa was cooked, I tossed it with some EVOO, 1/2 c cauliflower and a bit of green pepper. Then I mixed the quinoa with the quiche soup to create... Cheezy Cauliflower Quinoa! Vegans- aren't you proud of me?? A meal without eggs or dairy! And it tasted good.
On the side I had PB puffins and an unpictured nanner.

As previously mentioned, I went to my cello lesson today. It was lovely because I played suite 1 from Bach's unaccompanied cello and that's one of my favorite pieces eva! Then I went to therapy and it was good, because I actually felt like talking to my therapist for once. I didn't mention this before because I didn't want to jinx anything, but my group therapist and individual therapist had been discussing cutting down on my individual. I told my group therapist that I felt pressured to say things that weren't true in individual, and that I had made much more progress on my own and with the group than with my therapist. So my therapist and group leader talked, and decided that I can cut individual down to every other week now! I'm so happy, this is the first "reward" I've gotten for making so much progress on my own.

Also. The girl in my orchestra who I was talking to about stupid cleanse diets wore purple tops and shoes yesterday and today. I don't know if she likes purple, or if she's aware that it's NEDAW! I'll try to get up the nerve to ask her if she's wearing purple again tomorrow.

Nighty night, lovelies!

Laci said...

That "verification" is soo annoying! Hope it gets fixed soon... YEA for puple NEDAW! I toally forgot about the "wear the color" but I definatly will tom., event though I don't think I own anything that I've ever wore to school that's purple. That "soup" (stew? cheezy grain dish?) looks faaabulous- and puffins to go, I love it!

Great job, you are so strong Kiki! So proud of you! And love your eats, yum yum! I want to try Wallaby yogurt! =D

tinyirishdancer said...

Mhmm. Microed boonana? That actually sounds realllly nummy.
I shall try it after I go on my next grocery store excursion to replenish my boonana stock!

Oh boy. I just bought some PB puffins. And I'm so excited to try them.
It's a little sad, actually.

I love cello! Not many people play it, which is a shame. It has such a lovely, melancholy sound..

And congrats for being able to cut back on therapy! I'm so proud of yooou.

Well, before I get all teary-eyed, I will wish you a happay tomorrah! Luff ya, girlie!! <3

Mel said...

Pammy said...

kiki! ive missed you lovey! and your ultra-fabulous oat combinations :D

i must try the walla-walla yogurt! i was at the co-op today and i always grabbed it. i must go back! oh and b n pb - i remember the time when i first started recovery and this was how i first started incorporate pb back into my diet [after 5 years it was always a big fear food!] but i agree that it is an acquired, sweet taste. maybe try melting it into oats?

hooray for less therapy! awesome! i think you have made tremendous progress. and what better way to celebrate it this week - happy nedaw!

love you loads girly! <333
