As many of you might already know, a few weeks ago I talked about gaining weight. I did gain those last few pounds (they were probably all chocolate! haha..) But reaching my "goal weight" started a whole new problem. I have been struggling. No, I haven't lost weight. I have had a completely different struggle all in its own. Ever since my problems started, I was a avid calorie counter. After I saw a Dietician I counted food groups. Sadly, I have reverted back to calorie counting. The number I have stayed at is a number to maintain my current weight. I have met that "goal" every day. The thing is, I don't want to have a "goal", I don't want to plan meals, I don't want it to be something to stress over. Eating should be natural and enjoyed. When did I loose this? I am happy with my weight and everything, but I think the whole reason behind counting is that I dont wait to GAIN or LOOSE weight. How can I trust my mind, and my body to know what is right? I don't know what "normal eating" is. Because of this, I have been searching for a different dietician to see. I have an appointment tomorrow. I think this would be the answers to all my problems. Someone who knows that they are talking about. The funny thing is, my new dietician is a guy! I never thought that would happen. But in my opinion, I think a guy would be a lot more upfront and helpful (no offense to us girls), but I've always preferred male doctors!
WHEW! I had to get that off my chest.
So what have you all been eating? My family has been stuck with a million leftovers! As I mentioned before, when my grandma cooked beef, I brought chicken! I don't like to eat a lot of meat in one sitting (it still kinda gives me the creeps) so I have enough chicken for about a week! Last night I wanted to try something different!
I had a sandwich like this in a restaurant, and I loved it! I got 2 slices of bread. 4 OZ (cooked) chicken, Tomato sauce, and 1 OZ cheese! I just broiled it in the oven for a few minutes, and it was gooood to go!
and of course, I always start my days with oatmeal! I don't know what I'll do in the summer!
can you see the difference between fake and natural lighting?
I still haven't shown you guys a couple of my presents! Can you guess what they are? I'll *use* one later tonight!
have an amazing monday!
