Thanks so much for all your support on my last post. I know I sound like a broken record, but it feel amazing to have a support system like all of you guys behind me when I don’t feel strong enough. Seriously you guys rock.
Since my last few post have been of the “heavier” variety I thought I’d do one that’s just for fun. So here’s 10 things you should know about me.
I am obsessed with pumpkin– for real. And this isn’t just sugar pumpkin – this is anything of the winter squash variety. When I have a roasted pumpkin it doesn’t last longer then 2-3 days , tops. I think the amounts I eat it in should count as a binge – but hey, I don’t care. For me it’s the ultimate, tasty comfort food (especially topped with PB or yogurt) and it goes well with my stomach, so that’s a double plus for me.
Funny story, the other day I told my mom I was going to buy myself a treat at the store. I think she was thinking something along the lines of chocolate, because you should have seen her face when I came back with a pumpkin. Yes, I have a pumpkin and it’s all MINE 😛
I love eating breakfast out of mugs. Be it oatmeal, oat bran, cold cereal or pumpkin – I have a favorite cup that I always eat out of. I don’t know why I enjoy it so much, it must be the kid in me speaking up again 😛
I often prefer snack plates to meals. I’m a super indesisive person so I hate “commiting” to one big meal. I’d prefer to eat multiple times a day a few different things then sticking to one dish (although there is something to be said for a hot, home-cooked family dinner).
I’m obsessed with yogurt. It’s so bad for me, but so good for me. Recently, to bulk up the protein content of my meals I’ve been eating it mixed with a scoop of vanilla protein powder – yumminess.
I used to hate peanut butter. No kidding. It wasn’t even a fat thing at the time (I had no issues with almond butter), I just didn’t like the taste. But once I figured out how to make my own, and adding in the fact that peanuts are cheaper the almonds I determined to start eating it. At first it was a teaspoon every few days, then every day, then a table spoon a day. Now it’s more like 2-3 a day. I actually need to start varying up my nuts and seeds diet a bit – because it’s become a little peanut butter obsessed.
My favorite dessert of the moment is a middle eastern/ eastern european dessert called Halva. It’s ultra sweet, creamy, high calorie deliciousness. When given a choice it’s a tie between that and dark chocolate. Right now I’m sitting here absolutely stuffed and I still found space for the peice my sister offered me
I ❤ leftovers, especially if I wasn’t the one cooking in the first place . Do you ever find that food tastes 100% better cooked by someone else? I don’t know about you, but sometimes if I spend hours slaving away in the kitchen the final product doesn’t taste as good as it would have if someone else was doing the work.
I’m ultra motivated to push for weigh gain again. I have been trying and making progress, but I’m not pushing as hard as I should. Today I’ve been back on track, and boy is it rough (my stomach is currently freaking out on me). But I keep reminding myself that slow and steady will everntually win the race, and this too will pass. Just wish someone could tell me what was wrong with me though 😦
