My Dad's Birthday

Wow, it's been another weekend and Saturday went by way to fast. We changed oil and washed cars. My husband golfed and I ran. We had Pizza: me Sweet Swine and him Bronco. I got an awesome package from a great company whose products I can't wait to try. I truly think I need to reevaluate my eating lately, it's been all over the place, not as structured as I like and my ED is truly taking over again.
But first I want to tribute the first half of this post to my Dad who turns 59 today and is celebrating with all my family in Pine City, MN because it's also my uncles/dad's brothers birthday today too. Wish I could be there:(
This first picture is of my dad and I at our rehearsal walking me down the aisle where I lost it and cried the whole time.
And this was after dinner at the actual Wedding for our dance. More happiness:)
Onto the wonderful package I recieved from Katie @ Vitalicious. I've wanted to try all these different varieties for a long time and was so excited when she said she would send me some to sample. I can't wait to dig in. I also hid them in the freezer so no one else would touch them. With lots of boys around this household they would be gone in an hour if I shared! My hubby will also review one later in the week.

Look at all those delicious varieties: Banana Nut and Chocolate Peanut Butter. And way more that I'm excited for, good thing these will last me a while, just don't tell anyone..ssshhhhhh:)

Both breakfasts this weekend were yogurt messes with Chobani Pineapple, last of the Cinnamon Puffins, canned Pineapple, and of course PB! As you may have noticed lately breakfast is my favorite meal and after that I sort of neglect lunch and dinner/get lazy. I have good intentions butsometimes the ED comes though and talks myself into eating nothing, eating couples bites or eating meals and feeling guilty. I need to get past this so I think coming up with an eating plan might help me. I need to get some more greens/nutritional food in there without losing weight as well, which is hard for me sometimes.
I always been a 3 meal a day girl, but thinking lately 5 mini meals would be better. I also need to up the water intake, which is truly lacking and making me feel sluggish during runs.
Sorry for the quick rant/down, but I feel stuck and living in Iowa doesn't help, not a lot of healthy options around here or much support from the meat and potatoes crew.

I'm watching the Vikings right now and going to church @ 6pm. Other that that just trying to relax my heel from pounding runs:(

What's your preference: 3 meals a day or 5-6 mini meals a day?

happy birthday to your dad!

Sometimes my ed comes creeping through as well... On the one hand to not eat and that it will be so much easier to lose weight...and then on the other hand to binge like crazy and give up. It really sucks but tomorrow is always a new day and things might get just a touch better with time :) Your breakfasts do look delicious!

YAY for Vitalicious!! Enjoy them, they're great!! :)

Happy Birthday HealthyRunner Dad!

I definitely prefer 5-6 mini meals over 3. I grew up eating 3, but the adult Emily loves more, but smaller meals.

I wish I knew what to tell you about overcoming your ED. Since you mentioned church, I feel comfortable reminding you to look to God for strength. He will help you overcome anything!

Just found your blog, thought I'd say hello!

I'm definitely a 5 mini meals/day person. Hence the title of my blog! :) I do ok with 3 square meals too if I have to but I prefer to eat a large variety of foods during the day so that's why I eat small-medium sized meals all day long...

Sooo jealous of your Vitalicious package! I've been wanting to try those forever, but the price always turns me off.

Hang in there!

Happy Birthday to your dad! I usually eat 3 meals and 1 or 2 small snacks. Of course there are those days where I eat my life away after dinner. I also feel guilty after eating like that and am still working on those issues.

Rachel said...

You look so beautiful in your wedding pics! And of course happy belated birthday to your Dad.

I love vitatops. Enjoy them!

I am totally a 6 small meals person... I am a big snacker. Sometimes that's good, sometimes it's bad (depends on what I am snacking on...)


i prefer 3 meals a day (plus 2 snacks)!

Sounds like a fun weekend, despite the difficult time with the ED. My suggestion would be to try out the 5 mini meals. I'm definitely tend to eat that way and it really helps me get in all the nutrients I need throughout the day without ever feeling too full or too hungry. It makes it a lot easier to eat what you crave and have more options throughout the day. Either way, it's important not to get too set in any eating pattern. Eating should never take over living a normal life to its fullest... you have to take care of yourself inside and out! :)

Happy Birthday to your Dad!
