Feelin' good

I've had a good week so far. Since Tuesday, anyway. I ran 90 minutes today and yesterday, had an intake around 900 cals of really good, healthy food, got out of the house a few times (nothing special though, just Safeway)... It's been good.

I've been eating lots of fruit lately - apples, watermelon, strawberries & oranges are my key offenders. I need to go to another shop to see if I can find cantaloupe, and I really want Thompson grapes but they're out of season. My snacks have mostly been things like Wholemeal English muffins with low-sugar jam, muesli bars, sometimes oats, yoghurt, fat-free puddings... Fairly good stuff. Getting lots of fiber & potassium, getting over 100% of my Vit A, Vit C & Calcium (though I really lack in iron).

I've beaten one of my fear foods - sandwiches. Eating two slices of bread at once is hard. But I'm doing it! At the moment, it's generally my Four Seed bread, WW canola spread, a FF cheese slice, grated carrot & lettuce. They come in a smidge under 200 cal, so that's lovely. I've still been eating baked potatoes with Caesar dressing/parmesan/bacon 6/7 nights a week for a month and a half now. Maybe a slight issue? Anyway, I'm trying a sweet potato (alongside my regular spud, but half the size) tonight. I've never had them before. I'm gonna try it with S&P, maybe a little cayenne or tomato sauce. Any suggestions (the Internet seems to favor marshmallows :x)?

Oh, also, J picked up the last of his shit today (after two and a half months!). I am so glad to have it all gone. I am doing so much better without him. I am managing my ED, I have gained strength, happiness, and a desire to live. No regrets about slamming the door in his face (except I would've made sure it hit him!)

Anyway, I'm rambling. But I feel really good about myself today, and I did yesterday, too. I hope you're all well.



  1. I realy hope the best for you!
    keep fightig !

  2. I'm so proud of you. Eating a sandwich is such a massive step, you're come so far I'm so impressed.
    I hope you find a really delicious recipe for your sweet potato, I've never cooked one myself before, so I don't have a recipe suggestion sorry.
    I hope you're okay, take care and stay amazing.

  3. Hey, you sound awesome, I'm glad you're doing well. The lovely bones is right, eating a sandwich is great! They are one of my fear foods too, I eat toast when I'm binging, but I never eat sandwiches just because.... Anways it's nice to hear you're getting a bit of variety in your diet :)
