Surprise Egg-ttack

….or, “spontaneous egg-splosion”. Or, “sneak egg-sault”. They’re all cheesy enough to apply, so pick your favourite! : )

That shocking story in a wee second!!

Lunch from yesterday –

Quarrel of quinoa, garden veggie tempeh, chayote squash, raw honey, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds, lemon zest, and thyme!

This morning’s brekkie…

Today, lunch begun innocently. Well-intentioned!

Hummus resting peacefully upon a sweet ‘tater…

+a happy little persimmon.

But the eggs had a different idea in mind. A devilish plan.

I microwave-cooked them, as my tummy needed immediate fillage. While they were in the microwave, no explosions took place – really special for me! I took them out, commended myself on a clean job, but about ten seconds later…

…one of the yolks popped + exploded! It hurt a little bit – hot egg was not friendly with my arm – but otherwise, the surprise was the worst part! (Has anyone else had this happen? My mom said she’d never had it happen to her before; outside of the ‘wave!)

I poked at this topic yesterday, but I’m really starting to deepen into the idea…pursuing happiness in every little nook! I want to drift naturally toward the building blocks of my life that make me feel light + happy. I want to release stress and tension through every deep, invigorating breath. I want to respect myself – I want to live a life built off of confidence and joy!

I’m also becoming aware off how off-track I’ve skidded, in terms of ED recovery. Especially, because my weight yesterday was its lowest – ever! Saying I’m going to eat more, and that I’m going to stop compulsively obsessing over food, won’t heal me at all until I passionately pursue it. I need to repair my vision of food, and simply loosen my mind…just eat with less thought! Just allow my senses to focus on food, but keep my mind out of it! I’m beginning a new plan for myself, of eating six times per day – no feeling over-stuffed, which as a result, causes me to feel emotionally uncomfortable. Alongside that, incorporating calorie-dense foods (in significant, nonrestrictive portions!!) is a small goal that I know can help me. Really, an opportunity to use more peanut butter…how could I ever let it slip by?! : ) I just need to hold on tightly to my dream of feeling healthy + vibrant!

Aaaanndd, it’s only one week until Christmas – what excuse do I have to not be overjoyed?! : D

Sweet little breakfast – 

Another Ezekiel English muffin! Jelly + maple almond butter and chocolate hazelnut spread.

Chubby persimmon!

…I gathered a small bundle of holiday tidbits while grocery shopping with my mom!

December issue of Whole Living,

+two husky candy cane friends! Gingerbread and chocolate filled. : )

Drifting deeper into the gingerbread + chocolate theme….Theo gingerbread chocolate bar! Half the bar has already disappeared. The ginger is so strong and yummy! Probably my new very favorite bar. (For now – I’ve been trying to whoosh away my diet into wider variety….chocolate = included!!)

Auditions for drama club’s February show are tomorrow! (Shoo, anxious energy!!) The cast should be posted before the end of the week – line memorization + practice is left for our own responsibility, over the holiday break. (No school = no organized rehearsals! Ah!) The new play is called “Titanic, Trial, and Tragedy”. It’s a medley of scenes from three shows: Titanic (not the movie), The Crucible, and Romeo & Juliet. I would loovvvee to play Abigail (The Crubible)…roles that are driven so powerfully by the character’s physicality + emotion are super fun. : )

Today was woven with vinyasa flow yoga, homework, guitar….and Doctor Who! I’m happy that I could help myself by relaxing, while still not putting my mind into a slump over getting “nothing done”. It feels nice to have found a gentle balance!

Now, I’m going to decorate the tree!

Bah, Humbug

Saturday – wheee!

Breakfast… soft natural light, since I’m actually eating breakfast when it’s light outside!

Ezekiel English muffin: one half with pumpkin, coconut, oats and chocolate chips…other half, same, except with chunky peanut butter, instead of pumpy-kin.

+a big sliced pear with cinnamon.

Last night, was drama’s first performance of “Bah Humbug”. (ie, “The Christmas Carol!) Backstage was absolutely hectic (maybe this is just how high school theater always goes!!), but I feel like what the audience did see went well! 🙂

Tonight is performance number two – I’m not my larger role tonight. Instead, just extra “odd-parts” throughout the play. At least from my perspective, it should flow slightly smoother! (No “microphone drama” for me tonight, yay!)

Oh, and school has been the inspiration for some doodles, recently!

For a “Create-Your-Own Political Party” project in history class:

…Mr. Eagle!

For… um, not paying attention in class! (Oops!) :

We’re getting our Christmas tree tomorrow, and my festivity is expanding. 🙂

Happy weekend!!

Mental Race

Championships…

Did NOT go very good!!

Nerves beat me up too badly before the race. My head hurt and my stomach was turning…not great physical circumstances to be running under!

I’m upset with my time, but I know I need to move past it. Still, it frustrates me–it was an easy course, and I wish I had taken a more full advantage of that! Feeling as “yuck” as I did, I didn’t even have the motivation to push myself…so, I let myself stay way too comfortable (pace-wise!) for the entire race.

I ended up running a 23:28. I really believe I could have ran at least a 21:30; in fact, a girl on my team who I’ve ran slightly faster times than for half of our races ran a 21:07. Really, I wish I could have been as confident as she had been–for me, so much of this was a mental race. And, unfortunately, I’m a little slow in that area!!

But; all is done! I need to move on. One more week in the season–wow, districts on Friday?! After running with the team for four months, it doesn’t even feel real that it’s ending at the end of this week. Hopefully, that’ll give me the motivation to push myself as hard as I can manage this week, and to kill districts. Last week…last race! No reason not to use off all the energy that’s left in me!

And, my Mother promised to let me get my first professional massage done the day after districts. 😉 Ahah, okay, now that is where I’ll be looking to for my strongest bursts of motivation!!

Anywho, dinner…

Ezekiel English muffin with organic cheese + hummus…

Kitty cup ‘o edamame…

And, chayote squash with apple cider vinegar + sea salt, pepper, and dried thyme.

Goodbye and good-night!! 🙂
