Hello my loves ♥

I hope everyone is doing well.

♥ ♥ ♥

Things have been kind of crazy around here.  I am trying to get use to my new school schedule (getting up at 5am is a total change from being able to sleep in until 9am) but I am working on it.  It’s really not the fact that I have to get up so early, because I am honestly a morning person and don’t mind it.  But it is also switching around my eating times that I find the hardest to get use to.  I am not use to eating at 5am and really can not make myself eat a full meal.  But we’ll get on to that later. Because it is of course What I Ate Wednesday time!

But before we get started, we all know I make you guys go thank Jenn at PeasandCrayons for hosting this event.  Without her, this wouldn’t be possible and I wouldn’t be able to drool over all of your delicious looking eats and be extremely jealous of what I’m not eating.  But it just gives me ideas right?

And how ironic that Jenn had the idea of veggies February, because the star of my breakfast, yes I said breakfast, includes veggies!

So as I said my meals have kind of had to change. It went from me having time to prepare breakfast, even if I went to the library to me being rushed out the door.  As I said I just can’t bring myself to eating a full heavy breakfast at 5am. So breakfast have been looking like this lately.

return of the green smoothie!

I was actually kind of excited because I am a weirdo and really really like green smoothies.  When Matt and I were out I made sure to stop by the store real quick and get some spinach.

green smoothie in a green cup. makes sense.

In my mix was:

2 heaping handfuls of baby spinach

1/2 frozen banana

1/2 cup frozen cherries

a handful of blueberries that we had leftover

1 scoop Sun Warrior Chocolate protein powder

~1tbsp raw agave

This thing was pretty tasty.

I however do not enjoy scenes like these.

6:00am. cold. not happy.

Please excuse the messy car. I think a good detail is in order. I really do look like a pig by the looks of this. I swear my house doesn’t look this way…all the time.

Ok, you caught me. I’m a bit messy. Secret revealed.

But really my meals have been kind of boring. I just really can’t seem to get back in the swing of things of preparing exciting fun new meals.

Something that I did have recently that got me excited.

cereal in an almost empty chobani container

I haven’t had cereal in forever and was totally craving it.  And I also re-united with a long lost cereal love. Cinnamon Puffins.  I’ve had a box of peanut butter Puffin’s laying around for awhile and they just don’t do it for me.  I know everyone seems to be obsessed with them and are the flavor of choice, but not for this girl. So the box has been sitting and sitting. Since I don’t eat a lot of cereal I just never picked the cinnamon ones up, but the last time I went to the store I just had a calling for them. So glad I went with it.  Now, I know cereal is cereal, but this bowl of  cereal was amazing.  There was also some corn flakes and an organic cinnamon crunch in there.  But I’m telling you the cinnamon Puffins hit.the.spot. Mixed with the left over Chobani and chocolate almond milk. It was one tasty breakfast.

I was so excited about my cinnamon Puffins, that my snack turned into this.

mini greek yogurt mess

In my mix went strawberry greek yogurt, topped with cinnamon Puffins!! And also some strawberries. Although I do love my strawberries I can not wait for berry season again.  These were good, just not as soon as when they are in season.

With my new schedule I really want to work on having better meals.  But lately I have not been doing so well mentally with my eating.  I think I, or at least ED, secretly liked that I was so busy through out the day and had smaller meals.  I totally used school as an excuse.  Now that I actually have time and am home for more meals, I am finding myself upset at myself and scared that I am eating too big of meals.  I look in the mirror and know I need to gain. I am no where near where I need to be, but why does the actual process scare me so much????

It is so frustrating and I get so down on myself, and with everything else going on it just all is really piling up.

I feel an emotional breakdown coming. Fingers crossed I’m wrong.

But to end of a good note, because hey, we like to keep it positive around here.

Two of my favorites. Dead to the world.

i don’t know which one is cuter.

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week!
