Helloooo😘 we have arrived in london (where we’ll be spending the next day), just sat down for a cup of coffee ~ you can take the girl out of america, but not the america out of the girl ~. anyways, yeah just checking in to say hey and that my soul is so happy traveling again. sign me tf up for jet lag and sleep deprivation if i get to explore new places 😍
Dinner- i am still trying to count calories. once my psychiatrist told me that my new medication has to go along with more than 350cal meal, i set this bar line of 350 as the minimum and maximum calories i will have for dinner. #latuda 💊
i ate my dinner 2 hours earlier than i use to. that was because what happen this afternoon. since i took my medication yesterday super early, i have been acting strange around the house as my husband told me... i kept having anxiety attack but don’t know how to get out of it. 😧i certainly don’t want him to worry two days before i leave. i will stay on my own for two months in aspen, but mentally i’m not ready for it.
although restriction sounds bad, at least i can control my appetite on this med. i hate how some meds make your appetite go nuts... now i can finally move on and do projects other than thinking about food.😌 the dinner tuna wasn’t as good. i still prefer the thai chili better.
tuna -70; bun -120; egg whites-100; swiss cheese-70; mayo-10; total: 360
“every diet has the same (false) pretense: “it’s a lifestyle change, not a diet!”
but they all require you to restrict. and to a person struggling with an eating disorder, restriction is a death b**w to recovery.” - recent article on @recovrywarriors blog! .
this is an extremely important message. with the health + wellness boom we see ‘perfect diet’ recommendations everywhere, but no ‘diet’ is appropriate if you experience disordered eating. •••
