So first of all, the comments on my last post pretty much brought me to tears. All I can say is that you guys are SERIOUSLY amazing. Amazing. I would like to give all of you a big hug. Thank you AGAIN for reading and for coming back and I promise to always stay true to myself and be real, as that’s what most of you said you liked the most. Also, I got some requests to touch on my past ED and stress fracture a little bit more, so expect that in the future.
Also, remember when I mentioned I had a doctor’s appointment on Wednesday about my stress fracture? Well, apparently I’m a medical mystery. They did another x-ray and according to those results, my stress fracture has not improved (but also has not regressed) in the past 6 months. Fabulous. BUT the question is why I’m having pain WHERE I’m having it. I’m experiencing pain in my hip area while the stress fracture is a good bit lower than that, which confuses my doctor. SO, I am supposed to have a MRI Monday (which may not happen as we’re supposed to get dumped with snow) to see if there’s an issue with my hip and if so, we are going to try a shot of cortisone in my hip..ouch. And if there’s no issue with my hip or that doesn’t work, my doctor is going to try other things to figure what’s going on. Finally, we’re getting somewhere. I’ll be sure to keep you up to date with the goings on!
And now, what you actually came for… the FOOD! As most of my last posts have been word heavy, I have a good bit of pictures to unload on you so here goes! And some may or may not have been from back in December…oops.
Cheerios, almond milk, and a banana.
An INCREDIBLE salad full of lots of veggies, croutons, almonds, and bacon bits. YUM.
RED VELVET cheesecake (to DIE) along with a sliver of gooey butter cake.
A bag of cookies my secret santa sent!
Which were AMAZING toppers for oats…
Along with Barney Butter.
Best decision ever.
Chicago style pizza in Orlando!
From Giordano’s, courtesy of a suggestion from Meghann!
The most amazing dessert ever… vanilla ice cream topped with Ghiradelli chocolate FUDGE in Orlando.
I may or may not have been dreaming about this dessert since the last time I went 2 years ago…
A bowl full of goodness! Brown rice/quinoa topped with roasted okra, mushrooms, and green beans. YUM.
Real Madagascar vanilla that I bought in Orlando MADE these oats!
In the mix:
- a dash of half and half (makes it super creamy)
- an apple
- apple cinnamon granola
- fresh ground almond butter
- maple agave nectar
Holy yum. And I’m finding that I enjoy oats without the banana?
Random dinner but oh so good!
Leftover collard greens…
A Quorn faux chicken patty…
A taste of homemade macaroni and cheese…
And a sweet potato.
WAFFLES! You know it.
Van’s Whole Wheat Waffles
One topped with almond butter and Crofter’s, along with bananas and blueberries
A yogurt bowl with Whole Foods peanut butter cereal, apple cinnamon granola, yogurt, and a pear.
A Mickey Rice Krispie Treat from Orlando!
OIAJ! Well, overnight oats in a jar… My dad is currently obsessed with peanut butter and goes through about a jar every week or so. And leaves me the empty jar. I’m not complaining 😉
I threw in some Annie’s Graham bunnies… MADE it!
Another yogurt bowl with Greek yogurt, peanut butter cereal, blueberries, pineapple, and Kefir.
Mmm… Kefir, I missed you.
And dinner last night.
Boiled shrimp, a baked potato, a fried scallop and shrimp, and hushpuppies.
I then continued the night with a fro-yo date with a couple friends, a Bonfire with another friend (which are highly overrated… I STILL smell), and then going out… I slightly overbooked myself as I’m not used to having a Friday night off. But hey, you only live once!
How has your weekend been?
