One thing I have really been thinking about lately is how sometimes I tend to look at the negative in things and how I really want to stop doing this! It gets so easy for me to think about how many things in my life have not gone as I planned, yet in the end I have to constantly remember that everything happens for a reason.
Sure I never thought I was going to get an eating disorder and isolate myself away, yet it happened and it made me realize how strong I really am! Every day I am constantly battling those negative voices, yet all it takes is one moment to center myself and realize how much I have in my life to be thankful for!
I have a wonderful family, supportive friends, I was able to get a college education at a top university, I have a fantastic job in the field I want to pursue, I laugh every single day, I am in good health despite how much I put my body through, I have a roof over my head and food to eat, and there is just so much good in my life that I often take fore granted. So, today and this weekend and hopefully in any tough situations I hope to remember how much I have to be thankful for and use that as guidance to push me through life!
Sun butter & berry overnight oats. All I can say is I love this breakfast, but my challenge for next week is to switch things up a little!!
I also completed spin class this morning at the gym! My nutritionist recommended I try some different classes and activities so on a whim I ended up doing spin and totally was reminded of how much I love it! I used to do it all the time in college, but since moving home it had sort of phased out. However, I think now I am going to try and make the Friday morning class when I can because the instructor was awesome and it was nice to add a new workout into the rotation!!
Lunch today is not pictured, but was a roasted veggie pizza! I went out to lunch today and as soon as I read that this pizza was topped with tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, zucchini, peppers, onions, and tons of other veggies I was hooked! It satisfied my pizza craving and was meat free (since Fridays in Lent I can’t eat meat) and left me happy, full, and ready for the weekend!
Anyways I will be back Monday with my weekend recap so get ready for that and enjoy your weekends as well!!
And you know I just had to throw in this old pic of me for good measure! haha good times as a kiddo!
