It was so cold this morning.. I think I finally regained feeling in all of my limbs. Chrissy, that's horrible! I think some people are very ignorant. I wish I could see what they would act like if the roles were reversed. The two girls I had today did great.. It's great to see what being around horses does for the disabilities. And talking to yourself is totally okay haha it just means that you're a good listener as well.


I've been waiting for my boyfriend to get here for the past hour.. I wonder if there's traffic on the Meritt or something. I also had a Chai Tea Luna Bar that was delicious. Does anyone have any suggestions for good protein bars that aren't too high in sugar? I'm experimenting because I used to love Nature Valley Bars, but I don't feel like I get enough out of them.

Karey - Yeah, I'm really excited to see him. College is rough for long distance relationships, but it's worth it in the end. He's just staying Sat-Sun, and leaving sometime early afternoon I would imagine. In terms of plans..there's a football game, amongst other things. It's all really up in the air right now.

Chrissy - That's the reason I lurked for a few days. I didn't want to join a weight loss or weight gain group, because while I still have a little ways to go until "normalcy", I wanted an environment where maintenance and eating normally was the norm. I'm going to fight the urge and I'm going to win.

Debra - I love yoga! I took a few classes this summer and I wish I was continuing it right now... Do you know what type of yoga you're going to take?

I have to wake up in about 6 hours.. Oooph. I volunteer at a therapeutic riding center which is great. I love working with the horses and seeing the smiles on the kids' faces after their lesson is great.

Oooo Fro-yo and ice cream.. I'll have to remember that when I'm home because I absolutely love those two. We have ice cream and soft serve on campus but it's the devil because I never know how much a serving is.

I know I'm not there yet.. But I had around 1800 calories today and I feel good. I don't feel like I hate myself or that tomorrow I'm going to have to seriously compensate. I feel good. I like this feeling. 

I'm also really excited because my boyfriend is coming up tomorrow and I haven't seen him in 6 weeks.

Karey - I'm happy to hear that you're able to move around! I hope you get better quickly. Progress is good though!

Laura: My routine started shifting at the end of the summer - throughout the summer my exercise was 6 miles max, but usually just 4/5. When I shifted back into college mode, I mildly freaked out since I wouldn't be able to count calories as intensely, so to compensate I pumped up the cardio. I think my mind was telling me that if I burned almost all the calories that I had eaten/would eat, then I would be fine. Clearly that was wrong. I don't know when my routine started to shift, but over the past month or so it's slowly adjusted and the past 1.5 weeks I've really made a conscious effort to change. I think it was really one night where I was upset over things and turned to google and realized that if I kept going on the path I was going on, I could end up with an ED. So, I was determined to not let myself get to that point, and even within that short time, I've noticed a big difference in myself. I really want to keep this up and stay healthy, particularly now that winter is coming and once one person on campus gets sick, EVERYONE gets sick. It's the curse of the small liberal arts school..
