Sorry I’ve been kind of tardy on the posting front, but things have been so crazy here I’ve been hardly able to catch my breath. Not that I’m complaining though, because a lot of great things are happening.
I’ve started working since Monday and to be honest it totally threw my perfectly planned schedule for a loop. Meal times, work outs, free time – all these things have been sort of “go with the flow” for me. Add a few nights out with friends into the equasion and you’ve got yourself a busy little bee.
I also want to thank you all who commented on my last post and offered your words of encouragment. I am so lucky to have people like you behind me. Things have gotten much easier on the eating front and those urges have almost totally faded. Actually I’d dare say that working and being in this new enviroment is freeing me from the last bits of ED hang ups I had, because now everything is up in the air and I need to learn to just go with the flow and really listen to my body and what it wants. After all I need all the energy I can get for my job, and I’d really enjoy any to spare for my social life 😉
But with all this craziness there is on thing that has still remained the same – and that is my morning breakfast ritual (which I have actually come to treasure all the more).
I’m maintaining a very easy going approach to exercise at the moment – especially while I’m trying to get in the groove of things and work with my new schedule. My job is pretty active, and aside from that I do yoga in the mornings or evenings and go for walks.
But then how can you blame me when you have something like this to go to.
Added perks and all
I am totally enjoying the ubundance of fresh blueberries that I have growing almost litterally outside my door. Right now I’m eating them fresh, with soya milk and cereal or adding them to my oats – but I’m totally looking forward to baking on the weekends.
I really appreciate the people I am staying with at the moment for being so accomadating of the fact that I don’t eat meat. The first few days I was in a bit of a shell shock as the only things in the house were bread, meat and cheese – not a veggie in sight. As I’m used to a very “fresh” diet naturally I felt somewhat uncomfortable with this new development. But I decided to stop worriying about something so petty and go with the flow – a few days without vegetables won’t kill me, and it’s good for me to break out of my comfort zones and old habits. And thankfully, today we went out grocery shopping and I got my vegetable fix.
And boy they never tasted quite as good before 😉
Alright that’s enough rambling from me. Hopefully I’ll be on here more often then not, but no promises :P. Hope you all have a wonderful week!
