Out and about

I have just been out and about this weekend! Friday I shopped with a friend, yesterday we met up with some other friends, and today we’re going to a different church and some other friends’ home. Fun, but busy day.

Really, though, not too much is going on….I’ve been reading some blogs and saw this wonder ful looking muffin recipe here: http://www.snackingsquirrel.com/

You know that I now have to go and try to make some muffins of my own.

Speaking of baking, I tried the cake mix cookies found here: http://pbfingers.com/2010/04/11/cookie-sunday/. I ended up substituting 1/2 cup of applesauce for the oil and using 2 eggs instead of one. I used a lemon cake mix, and the cookies tasted like Jumbles….but fluffier. The whole house smelled lemony-fresh =D and, because I don’t want to serve anything less than wonderful to my family, I tried a cookie (or two….or four) straight out of the oven. YUM!!!!!

As for my attempt to gain weight in a healthy way to beat my eating disorder, a doctor suggested Ensure shakes. Each one has 250-350 calories and they are full of essential vitamins and minerals and fats. Even hospitals use them!!!! They also taste pretty good, the ones that I’ve tried so far are the dark chocolate and the cafe latte. They don’t taste like “health” shakes, and I’ve been instructed to drink at least 2 per day.

That’s about it for me…….gonna head off to church pretty soon….so I’ll catch up with ya’ll later!!!


My poor, neglected blog

I’m sooooooooo sorry about not posting at all this weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Been out and about…don’t even remember what all I ate yesterday!

Soooo, I’ll start with breakfast today. It was pretty boring actually, a bowl of plain oatmeal and my mocha protein shake. The only difference was that the milk was bad so I just poured extra coffee into the shake and added a couple of peppermints to have a peppermint mocha. Not too bad, actually.

After that breakfast, we headed off to church, which was great. Then we had a girl’s day and went to Chili’s for lunch. I had the GG Classic Sirloin. It was a 7-ounce grilled sirloin served with pico de gallo on top and steamed broccoli and carrots on the side! I also got the Mango Iced tea and may have sneaked a couple of fries from my mom’s plate….soo good!

Then, we were home for a bit, and later this afternoon, off to help a friend organize clothes for a consignment sale. We just got home, and I had some chicken noodle soup (Progresso reduced sodium), crackers, half a purple tomato, some cottage cheese(I think I may be obsessed =P), a mini three musketeers and, randomly, a pickle. How a pickle fits into the meal, I don’t know. Come to think of it, nothing in my dinner actually went together, except for maybe the soup and saltines.

Tomorrow I have school. I’m so excited. Can’t you tell????

See you in the mornin’!!!
