Trouble eating

Thursday, February 14, 2013

I have been having a pretty good last couple of days. It has been non-stop but not bad at all. The fact that I bought a car sunk in! Ahhhh! What did I do?! I love it though, but my goal is to pay it off ASAP. My old car, even though I should sell it because of its high resale value, I'm giving it to my mother-in-law because she doesn't have a car, and hasn't owned her own car in years-- she always has been needing to borrow my sister-in-law's car. I'm happy that I can help her-- but I know that I'm biting myself in the butt because 2,500 - 3,500 could be going towards my car TODAY! I'm driving it up there next month, and riding a Greyhound bus back. All for around $160. Not bad shipping costs! Car shipping companies were quoting me 700+. No thanks, I can do it on my own.

Eating-wise honestly, I've been having trouble eating ever since I got sick with that stomach flu. Don't know why. Everytime I eat I feel like my stomach is SO full, doesn't matter what it is. Happened today with a granola bar. I forced myself to eat a veggie burrito at school. Ugh! I just feel like throwing it up! It's obviously not that bad, but this "disgust" toward food thing is kind of annoying. Especially when I'm actually hungry! But I much rather have control over what I'm eating than feeling like I need to eat 75% of the time like I use to. I'll be honest, I haven't been counting calories. Just listening to my body the best I can. I hope it does me well on the scale this week-- but we'll see. If there is a problem I'll get back to tracking. I just feel like I haven't even been eating enough to track.

I feel my anxiety levels have diminished a lot, especially in the past week. YES, this is so good. I was really jittery for a while but I think it's finally going away. I still have brain fog, still tired, but at least I don't feel like I absolutely have to have a nap. Today I'm exhausted but only because I stayed up until 1 AM last night writing a paper, and finishing it at 6:30 in the morning. Two exams and a 6 page paper on Valentines day, I feel the love! Haha. I haven't been sleeping much at all this week it feels like. I'll definitely try my best to catch up tomorrow morning (even though I know catching up doesn't exist).

Everything has been okay. Just stressed because of my responsibilities. I still wish we could find a way to move to Miami ASAP. I feel like school takes foever, and am looking forward to the day when I can just work. Forget having kids in the next few years, I wanted one by the time I'm 25 but that sounds like an absolutely crazy idea right now. I think I can probably happily hold off until I'm 29 or so.

I sometimes think even my dog is needy! Haha! Although right now I want nothing more than to cuddle in bed with her and Andrew. C'mon, she's so darn cute! Hope everyone else is having a great week!

    It takes a little bit for a person to be able to eat normally after being sick. At least you're not going to be overeating.

Waiting to have kids is something many people are doing, I didn't have mine until I was 28 and 30, which seems to be the normal age for parenting now.

College stress is never fun, but it will be worth it in the end, no one can take away knowledge from you.

I'd be cuddling with that puppy too! What a cutie!

    Holy cow!! Who is that cute little bugaboo there??????

As far as your food revulsion.. if it was me I would just eat or drink what tastes good to me at the time until your nobody gets back into sync..
that may be crackers and jelly or cheerios and chocolate milk, but who cares?? Baby that tummy and spoil it so you do not lose our lunch,,, poor thing,, I hope you start feeling better soon.
