Healthier way of life/ eating disorder recovery


I ate more today
but I felt really bad about eating spaghetti
twice in one day
but the cafeteria was like OUT of everything I wanted
IE: Fruit, milk for cereal, etc...

I'm currently working on a list of all the good, bad, and neutral things in my cafeteria.
so I know =)
I think I'll type it up
and you can let me know if you think something needs to be switched
because I've already had some people argue with me, lol

+Spaghetti (no sauce)
+with vegan marinera
+Carrots & Cucumbers w/ Vinegar
+Breakfast bar(Nutrigrain I think?)
Around ~ 1300
very rough estimation.

My legs really hurt today
a good hurt =)
Like something is actually happening.
because I haven't taken to elevator to my class all week ^_^;
(On the 3rd floor...including a ground floor, 4 flights!)
and I've been walking
It feels great.

and also as a side-note.
I think I found a place for workstudy this fall =)
I'm excited
the ladies there seemed estatic to have somebody come in wanting a job
It's the campus Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender (GLBT) house, Alcohol-Drug abuse house, basically the place where people who have problems and need somebody to talk to or feel harrassment.
and they said they have a hard time getting people to not only work there
but to stay
and that's understandable, you know?
a lot of people would crack having to deal with people like that.

Not only do I know many GLBT, I lived with a drug dealer for like 4 years, and have dealt with people who have horribly abused drugs and alcohol.
I think it would be the perfect job for me
because I honestly don't judge people straight on
just because of what I've been through

That was just a little rant something, Chelsea if you want it behind a cut or removed, just let me know.
I just thought it was good news to share ^_^;

Hehe. Well, listen! You're allowed to eat whatever you want, it is just better for it to be healthy for you and for the right reasons. Eating spaghetti twice in a day isn't a crime! You might not have gotten the same nutrients you would have otherwise, but maybe that'll balance out with your next few meals over the next day.

So don't feel guilty. Sometimes eating naturally requires having either a.) indulge or b.) makeshift and compromise. When the attitude and motivation is still there to let food be JUST FOOD, the body sorts itself out.

it's difficult to get that mindset.
especially from being eating disordered =\

but that was a great comment, haha!
I really loved it!
Thank you!

I want to be a graphic designer, lol
hopefully also with computer programming, with some minors in a few languages, lol.
I know it has nothing to do with my job, but it's something that I can make money by doing and enjoy =)

yeah hopefully I finish my list tomorrow.
I'd love to see your list too!
I think it helps to have a list of things.

I had spaghetti yesterday too, for the first time in I don't even know how long. It was yummy :)
That's great that you've found somewhere like that to help out in during the fall where you can really help and make a difference. That's definitely good news, and you'll have to let us know how it goes.
