Tonight will go down in history (at least in my history) as epic. I am so the All-American girl right now, dressed in a NY Yankees jersey, eating a cheeseburger and fries.. No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you.
This morning, I woke up feeling a little (physically) better than yesterday. My fever went down and my head wasn't spinning quite as quickly. I met with my nutritionist and she tried to help me brainstorm ideas for meals. I find that I'm eating the same foods, in the same order nearly every day. Meal plans have become so monotonous that I dread and anticipate lunch or dinner while I'm still devouring breakfast. Just the other day, I told my therapist I thought of mealtime as a chore-- No wonder I detest food. Indubitably, my nutritionist immediately took advantage of the detrimental thoughts and thus made sure I had a variety of options for meals for the week. Afterwards I spent a decent amount of time at my favorite places-- Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. There is no comparison to walking through those automatic gates (doors) to heaven (supermarket). In fact, I was so inspired that I decided my self-care for the night will be a delectable cooking session with a radio, me, myself and I. I know I've mentioned it before, but there is nothing more beneficial to our well-being than quality time spent on self-care. This may include a bubble bath in the dark, hot yoga, a manicure, or in my case, cooking alone in a clean kitchen.
What self-care will you engage in tonight?
P.S. I promise tomorrow morning's post will be much more thought provoking.
(I just had a thought-- don't get scared. How brilliant would it be if we, bloggers, tried to keep up a book club? Or perhaps a photograph club? I know this probably sounds incredibly lame, and I'll most likely regret the idea after this post is published, but I believe it could be a great way to network and distract ourselves from that always peeving ED!)
