I woke up at the unholy hour of 9:30 a.m. today. Guys, I wanted to die. I really did. I could barely peel my eyes open, and my mom was trying to incentivize me out of sleep with some quinoah. Don't know what that is? Oh, don't worry, I didn't either until this morning. Apparently it's some wheat-y thing from Peru that kinda tastes like oatmeal. And I'm like, really Mom? You want to lure me from the sweet slumbers of sleep with weird wheat? Why not some pancakes or even better, crepes? Or maybe a colorado omelette? But, begrudgingly, I woke up and ate my latin oatmeal. But it was rough!
Though, I'll give you that with waking up earlier, you definitely have more time to do really important things like search TMZ's website and blog and I guessssssss clean. I finally unpacked our suitcases from Bear Lake, so that's good. Maybe I'll even shower. Who knows what miracles will occur today from waking up at a normal time like a normal person!
You guys, I'm having some serious problems with watching the Animal Planet. Specifically, I can't stop. I don't flip on CNN when I'm bored, or even E!, or better yet, re-runs of Oprah. Nah, I flip to the good 'ol AP. And, before a few years ago, I wouldn't even have considered myself an "animal person!" But EVERY SHOW on the network utterly fascinates me. I already waxed poetic about My Cat From Hell, but what about Cats 101/Dogs 101? Or It's Me or the Dog? Or the winner for Grossest of them All, Confessions: Animal Hoarding? Butbutbut what about Big Cat Diary? And Fatal Attractions? Guys, I have a fever. And the only prescription...is more
You know what's cool? I've followed my mealplan PERFECTLY for going on 7 weeks now. This may not sound like a big deal, but guys, it is. It way is. I haven't had 7 weeks of straight compliance since well, probably ever. And it's really cool because yeah, I'm not super thrilled with my body, and yeah, I wish it were a bit smaller, but I'm not completely freaking out and obsessing about it like I used to when I was more enveloped in the ED. And I'm also finding out that I can eat A LOT (my mealplan is monstrous) without gaining any weight. That gives me confidence that I can eat some of my fear foods too, mostly desserts, with out getting huge. So that's definitely a positive that I wanted to take a sec to brag about. :) Food forever! Starving never!
Time for me to go I think, since this post was neither cohesive or especially interesting, and if I let myself, I think I could go on forever. Have a great day guys, I heart you and I totally approve of this message!
