So, I had a supper busy day today, so a full post isn't happening. I ended up subbing this morning (after staying up way too late last night), shopping in the afternoon with my bestie followed by sunbathing (again with the bestie), then going to therapy. Also, I ate ice cream today, and although it tasted delicious, my stomach is not a happy camper at the moment. Point being: a full post is not in the works tonight.
Anyways, I was asked on a previous post what my current meal plan looks like. After reading the comment, I realized I never shared my meal plan with you all, so here it is:
8:00 – 9:00 Breakfast

I've been slowly working with my nutritionist to increase my calories. I have a feeling that a major cal increase is going to be happening next week, which I'm not too excited about, but I know is necessary. I just wish ED would understand that too.
I should also note that I don't always follow my meal plan to a tee. I try to keep the cals the same, but I honestly get sick of eating the same thing everyday, and sometimes the food on my meal plan isn't available. I try to do my best to keep stuff nutritionally the same.
Well, that's all I got for you guys tonight. I need to try to go eat dinner, but I honestly don't know if my stomach will let me. I can barely even sit up or move at the moment, much less scarf down some food.
Why does dairy hate me so much? I'm so kind to it and try to consume it reguarly, and look what I get in return....psssssh!
Happy Friday Everyone!
