I can always tell when I’m having bad days or thought overload by the infrequency of my posts. The past 5 days, including today, have been filled with lows, highs, and lots of self reflection.
Thursday was parent teacher conferences which meant it was also ‘eat a bunch of junk from the break room’ day.
Friday I had the privilege of answering phones for KHIS my local listener supported Christian radio station during their semi-annual fund raising event. What could be better than 6 hours sitting next to a friend who is just as loud and giggly who also loves to eat? Not much! I managed to limit my intake to 6 donuts, lots of coffee with chocolate sauce, and Chick-Fil-A for lunch. But that’s not all!!! I ate a bag of Frito’s to soak up the sugar, then had BBQ and fries, then cupcakes, cheese and crackers, and a chocolate bar. What a day!!!
Friday evening with a friend also included what I like to call a ‘come to Jesus meeting.’ I’ve spent my entire life hating myself which causes me to hate everyone and everything around me. Being alone is easier than constantly worrying about whose feeling ill hurt next. So… I’m on a mission to love me. Everyday for 7 days I have to come up with one positive thing to say about myself. Friday: I have nice feet (they aren’t fat). Saturday: I can assemble a nice outfit from my closet. Sunday: I can cook healthy meals and encourage others to eat healthy. Monday: I help a child in my school with her spelling. Most people would think this is a silly exercise, but to me it’s torture to say anything nice about myself – even just reciting the Bible verses about how God sees me is hard.
Chicken sautéed with onion and zucchini, spaghetti squash, and a salad with apples and walnuts. Approx 300 calories. Yum!
