What I Ate Wednesday

What I Ate Wednesday just isn’t the same if you weren’t celebrating Taco Tuesday. This full day of eats doesn’t disappoint!

Happy Wednesday! First, I want to take a second and say THANK YOU to everyone who responded to, reached about, or otherwise reacted to my Friday Feels post last week. The love I received was amazing but even better was hearing that you were able to connect and relate. There’s comfort in knowing other people are going through parallel struggles and that there is a space for open and healing conversation. To that end, I want to give you a quick life update…

As I shared, I had a pretty major anxiety backslide a few weeks ago that left my brain simultaneously spinning out of control and completely numb. During my time of crisis, my body’s natural instincts took over to guide me through the chaos of simply getting through the day. I ate intuitively, gave my body exactly what it needed, and didn’t stress about food. I’m constantly amazed at the human body’s ability to tell you exactly what it needs…

Now that I’m on the upswing and feeling much more mentally stable, I noticed some disordered thoughts creeping back in… “Is that tummy fat on my midsection?” “Should I be making up for the week of eating whatever I want?” Let’s get two things straight right now: 1.) It is entirely possible (and very likely) that my body did not actually change in any way in the course of one week. 2.) If it did,  IT DOES NOT MATTER. I was in crisis and my body was simply doing what it needed to do to keep me functioning and alive. Plus, a little tummy fat never killed anyone. (No really, I promise.)

I’m proud that I’m able to call out these disordered thoughts but it’s clear I still have some work to do in my recovery. Every day is a step

Now shall we get on to what really matter??! This is What I ATE Wednesday after all!

Per usual, split a banana with bae on the way to the gym.

I took a quick hiatus from the smoothie game last week, but I’m straight back at it this week with my fav Chocolate Cherry Beet Smoothie.

John prides himself on picking out the largest watermelon in the store every week, even though we are only two little people. I’ve been eating so much, I think I see some green stripes poking through my skin…

Lunch was the same salad I’ve been eating forever but FINALLY shared with you this week. Seriously, you MUST make this Beet Green & Quinoa Salad. I’m addicted. (Added some  Manitoba Harvest hemp hearts for some extra protein and fat!)

You know when you were a kid and you bit into a peach and the juice ran down your chin and it was the best feeling in the world? Yeah, I channeled that while standing at my desk in the afternoon today…. I probably looked that that crazy coworker. Not mad.

Tacos. Need I say more? Ok, ok I will… I met friends for tacos and margs at Local Cantina (fav tacos in town!). I can’t get enough of the Migas taco (hold the dairy). 10/10.

Some more watermelon, a little R&R, and suddenly we’re halfway to Friday…
