Slow paced morning for me… in a good way! One of my classes got canceled don’t have class until 2 today but instead of trying to run around like a crazy person I’m letting myself be productive in a relaxed way because I know I have work late tonight again. Last night for dessert I had this new granola bar, it was good not phenomenal I probably wouldn’t buy it again just because there are better ones! DSCI0003.JPG

When I finally got back last night I was starving and craving barney butter of course so I paired it with some baby carrots (and a few honey twists…duh)

I covered 13 random miles in 62 minutes on stationary bike this morning while reading some great articles in Self on pleasure diets and relaxation… great relaxing and energizing start to the day! Before I left I had 1/2 a banana with cottage cheese and cinnamon.

I came back for a MPPIAB with vanilla protein, topped with raspberries, chopped salted cashews and a little coconut butter blob

Sprinkled with some ginger and green/key lime tea

I just would like to mention for one second that this week is National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. I don’t want to go into too much detail or statistics or anything but I will say that this is an issue that hits VERY close to home for me. You all are somewhat familiar with the disordered thinking habits that I have and am still overcoming but I will also say that I have a large familial pre-disposition to this kind of thinking.

The biggest point that I would like to make about ED’s is that they are not a choice, they are a mental illness that cannot be helped. If you know someone suffering with any kind of severe ED (anorexia, bulimia, bingeing) or just from some disordered thoughts or habits the best thing you can do it give them a friend and encourage them to seek professional help.

There is a campaign for awareness this week on my campus and I’ve been seeing these all around, I love them!

Have a great day!

Peace!
