I’m visiting my older sister this weekend in northern Virginia. She has two kids (2 1/2 and 6 months), two dogs, two cats, and one husband always vying for her attention, so to say this house is crazy might be an understatement. But I love it. The craziness has kept my mind of my usual thoughts (when am I running today, how far, how many calories have I had…). I babysat my nephew (the 6 month old) today. I was changing diaper after diaper and never even had a chance to miss the run that I didn’t go on today! I am feeling some anxiety about it now, but definitely not as much as usual!
I was ridiculous when packing to come here this weekend. I really didn’t want her to feel obligated to cater to my food needs, so I basically brought everything I could possibly want/need. Yesterday pretty much sucked with my appetite. I didn’t feel like eating. I wasn’t hungry. I forced myself to eat normally for me at this point anyway. I’m doing well. Just have to keep pushing! Today my appetite wasn’t much better, but I didn’t feel too anxious about what I was putting into my body since I had food that I was comfortable with (even though the food still felt somewhat unnecessary).
On a completely different note: I’ve decided to join the Meatless Mondays movement. If you read my previous post, you know that my nutritionist cautioned me against full-time vegetarianism and too much part-time. I feel like one day a week is a pretty good compromise to that. My sister has this book 1,001 Low-Fat Vegetarian Recipes that has so many recipes and looks so awesome! I’m going to pick up a copy for myself tomorrow and work my through as many recipes as possible! I’m super excited!!
Off to catch up on my blog reading since I was internet-less yesterday!!
