Evening, blogland! Sorry for not posting or commenting yesterday. Most of my teachers decided to tell me that all the work I missed while I was sick was due by today, so I spent all day and night doing that yesterday! I think I'm mostly caught up on commenting though.
Thanks for your advice on how to eat at parties. I'm sorry to say that I ended up not eating anything. While everyone else was socializing and eating cake, I was sitting by myself with no food. I'm sure that attracted more attention to me that I would have gotten if I had been eating though. Gur. I talked about it at group and the other girls said that it just comes with practice, yipee.
This morning for breakfast I topped my oats with freeze dried acai bananas, the last strawberry, and dark chocolate chips. T'was yum.
No pic of AM snack or lunch as they were boring. For my afternoon snack, I had a whole wheat english muffin with CC and applesauce, walnuts, and a tangerine. This is now my favorite snack!
Since both my dinner from last night and my dinner from tonight were scrumptious, I'll show you both. Last night, I made quinoa stir fry with spinach and walnuts. I love putting nuts in grains!
Tonight, I made soft oven baked polenta. Polenta is my new obsession! It's so creamy and filling. I used a combo of feta and parmesan for the cheeses. I accidentally forgot to take the lid off the baking dish so it was soupy, but still delish. You should all try polenta.
I also had a side salad made of lettuce, carrots, sundried tomatoes, cucumber, and papaya poppyseed dressing.
So far tonight, I've had a very oddly shaped yellow plum from Harry and David. It was really yummy and juicy.
Today in orchestra we were chilling out because we packed up our instruments a couple minutes early. I heard two girls talking about how their friends were going on a detox diet. They said that one of their friends thought she needed to lose weight, and their other friend was just following along to be healthy. This is where I jumped in the conversation, and they didn't seem to mind. We all started venting about how unhealthy detox diets are, how they deprived you of protein and fat. Then we were talking about how it sucks that every girl has such low self-esteem that they feel the need to diet to feel better about themselves. It makes me so upset that there are girls out there who are starting down the same path as me, just dieting to "cleanse" and be healthy. I took eating healthy too far though, which ultimately lead to my ED and I don't want it to happen to anyone else! I am happy though that there are some girls who realize how stupid teenage dieting is and know that it's not the way to make yourself happy. I sort of suspect that one of the girls has/has had an ED, but I don't exactly want to ask.
Tomorrow is my mom's birthday, and we may or may not be going out for dinner. I don't know if I'll have time to post. There will definitely be cake :]
