Weekend challenges, Sunday morning, and exciting stuff

November 22, 2015


Hi my amazing readers – this little kiss above is for you! ♥

You know what?! I DID IT! My challenge yesterday as I wrote a little bit about here. Liz and I went downtown after lunch and did some errands and then headed to a cafe. I didn’t want to write about it in detail beforehand for some reason, but now, when I’ve done it, I will. The challenge was for me to drink a latte or something (read: not plain coffee at a cafe), and I did! It was something I’d planned with my therapist and nutritionist to do just in order to be more flexible when being out and about so I don’t feel like I have to run home at the exact time for my snack, but can have it wherever I am. Just to be clear, a latte is actually not completely enough as a snack for me at the moment, and the next step is to eat something with it, but you have to do this step by step, and this was the first one. Yes. I even enjoyed it a little bit!

So it’s Sunday morning. Pretty early and we’ve been up for a while. I have a weird sleep schedule nowadays which I’m not a huge fan of…but oh, well. As of right now, though, I am enjoying sitting here, blogging with candles lit, coffee beside me, and a cozy cat in my lap.

We have some exciting plans this afternoon, but once again, I’ll leave it as a little cliff hanger since I don’t really know what the outcome will be, and therefore, is better to tell you all afterwords. Hehe, pretty mean perhaps..I do really wanna write about it..but at the same time it feels a bit weird doing it before I know more stuff..so to be continued.

Love to you all!

    Well done darling! Well done! I know so little about eating disorders truth be told, but reading here that a latte can be such a challenge is heart wrenching – you are doing so well – keep with your challenges and I hope each step along the way becomes easier for you, less of a battle and something that will grow your flexibility bit by bit!
    Happy Sunday Lina xx

    Your accomplishment is super wonderful! I don’t think you’re being mean at all by not sharing some things ahead of time. If it’s something that I’m not completely confident I prefer to wait to tell it too. I don’t enjoy having to go back and say “false alarm!” I have complete faith that you will succeed in doing what you set your dear mind to, even if it takes longer than you’d prefer. You, Can. Do. It! I swear we have such extreme opposite problems with eating. I feel especially helpless around sweets. Too bad we can’t meet halfway on this, huh? Hang in there, Lina! Brighter days are ahead! 🙂

      Thank you for your sweet words and support!! It means SO MUCH to me!! If we could meet halfway would have been such a good thing…too bad it doesn’t work like that :/ I’m cheering you on, on your fight to a healthy and good life <3
