Dancing Around and Feeling High….

Goooooood Morning everyone!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!?!?!
Mine was filled with sweet nothingness!! 😉 I chilled at my moms, had a calm evening and on Sunday we went to a beautifull Fall-Marked and walked around for about four hours (of course there was a lot of standing in between!)! It was a little overwhelming with all the people but it had so much things to look at!
Nonetheless I was happy to be home again and enjoy the evening cooking and watching tv shows!

Here you have all the goodies!! Starting with my re-introduced Soup-Friday – which means only liquids preferable soups on every Friday. YAY!!
Oh and I finally found the ankle boots I was looking for the last few month!! Can’t believe I found them!! And found another pair of boots that are very similar to the ones I already have but are on their last legs!!
Successfull Friday I might call this!

breakfast: maple & brown sugar Quaker Oatmeal with Milk and lots of cinnamon

lunch: veggies and potato/leek instant soup

afternoon snack: hot chocolate in my favorite office mug!

dinner: instant dhal soup (normally my Soup-Friday doesn’t consist in so much instant soup! sorry!!


Saturday started really early; Woke up at 7am – started doing laundry, had a delicious breakfast (as always on weekends – I totally look forward to this breakfast all week!!) – while waiting on the dryer I went shopping for two packages I sent out afterwards 😉 😀 – as I told you ladies earlier It may take up to 14 days to arrive, sorry about that!!
Returned home to emty the dryer and fold my laundry, only to head out the door to go get my Snowboard with the new Binding! I’m so psyched and can’t wait to go snowboarding soon!! Mountains I’m coming!!
Went to my moms and chilled there withouth our regular Saturday-Walk because my mom didn’t feel to well. No problem with me because I planned to practice with my point shoes in the evening so I was glad to give my foots a little rest! I aimed high in the evning – not really! 😉 I practiced for about 15 minutes and my feet where dead!!
I’m so excited about dancing on pointe but also a little worried I might not be strong enough now!!
We will see…. I relaxed the rest of the evening and went to bed really early!

breakfast: overnight oats (1/3 oats, 2/3 water soaked over night) with a cooked in banana and lots of cinnamon,
our own apple compote, cran- and goji berries and pine nuts

lunch at moms: salt potatoes and sauerkraut (times two)
with small slices of pork belly and other pork

dinner at home again: some creamed spinache and an onion tartlett
had a few (unpictured) handfulls mixed nuts and
for dessert more of the apple compote with cinnamon and almond butter

Sunday was a late start – slept in until 9am which is really rare for me. Had breakfast and went to my moms so we could get going for the Fall Market in another City. Like I said it was beautiful – had lots of different things and of course lots of Food Stands! I wasn’t hungry at all and was a little annoyed with all of them – but the other ones got hungry around 3pm and we went and sat down in a cute little market ‘restaurant’! I had a few spoonfull of my moms soup but that was all for me! I was glad to be home again and get going in the kitchen for my pumpkin soup! I was looking forward to this soup all week because the butternut is staring at me since last weekend!! ;D
Not to toot my own horn but this soup was excellent!!! I included some pumpkin I bought last weekend at a Farm stand and the flavor of it was really nutty and just perfect combined with the butternut, onions, garlic and curry! Holy YUM!! I’m sooooo eager to eat this soup for dinner every day this week!! 😀 😀

a repeat of the breakfast from Saturday (this might easily be repeatet next weekend as well!)

my awesome soup – times two
and in the back the roasted pumpkin/squash I prepared for my lunches for this upcoming week!

for dessert I had a cup apple compote with lots of cinnamon and a tbsp almond butter again (like Saturday night!)

And this is about it! Like I said I hope you had a great weekend and oh I almost forgott:
How was your Halloween?! Tell me all about it!!!
Can’t wait to read all your stories!!

Last but definitely not least I wanted to clear something up:
After reading kasondras comment on my last post, I need to add here that I am nowhere near malnourished!
Don’t get me wrong, I know I have an ED but I’m not underweight!! In fact I’m at a BMI of 24 right now!! A lot of my weight is muscul but nonetheless I’m clearly a little “too much” at the moment!!
I appreciate every word she wrote and will deffinitely take a lot of it into consideration!

Thanks for all of your thought and comments on my posts!!
I would not be this stong withough all of you!

Have a wonderful week and take one day at a time!

Hug

Bottomless Pit

Wonderful morning to everyone!
My morning begun with a wonderful blue sky and (a little later) was greeted with sunshine!!
I love mornings like this! And in the fall it’s kind of macigal!! 😉

But I need to write about yesterday not today!!
I like Mondays – unlike the majority of humans!
It might have to do with someone named B (who works in my office) and with my ballet-class in the evening to which I look forward all day (do I need to lookout for more B-words?! 😀 )!! And this Monday was not different!!
Flirted a little in the early morning – and since we aren’t supposed to do that it’s a lot more exciting!! 😀
And enjoyed a nice breakfast around 8.30am (I usually make my b-fast around 7am and wait until 8-8.30am because otherwise I’m hungry again a little too early and this way my muesli has time to soak!)

about half a cup ww muesli soaked in water – half an apple, a kiwi, about a tbsp pb chocolate dreams topped with flax
(I had to take a pic before mixing it up – this way it looks soo much nicer!!)
The morning went by fast even though I don’t have much to do at the moment! But I had enough time to catch up with all your lovely blogs (since I hadn’t had time on sunday) and enjoyed all of your posts!! That is another reason why I looove Mondays!! ;D
lunch: approx. 1/4 cup quinoa, yellow pepper, zucchini, cauliflower
added cherry tomatoes after I took the pic and mixted in cottage cheese and topped it as usual with a seeds and nuts-mix
kind of dessert an hour after lunch – granola bar


An uneventful afternoon later I approached 4pm and had my early kind of dinner befor my ballet class at 5.20pm:
two ww cracker with a tartar (something like philadelphia) and chicken
on the side a babybell and for dessert a dark chocolate covered granola bar – which is awesome by the way!! sadly it has too much bad ingedients!


After an exhausting but awesome ballet class I came home craving someting salty:

I just prepared myself a little quick (instant) soup and had milk on the side
I had another mug later with chocolate

After my ballet class earlier I asked my teacher what she thought about me starting to dance “en pointe” and as awesome as she is, she just gave me some pointe shoes to try on and told me that she is absolutely sure that I would do great and that my feet would be strong enough and to say it (kind of) in her words “it would be fun!”
YAAAAAAYYYY!!!!
You can’t imagine how excited I was!!!! So after I showered I just had to try them on!!
And surprisingly they fit perfectly!!! She forgot to give me the pattings for them but since I plan on buying a pair of my own for my birthday (coming up soon on the 11/08) I did not care!
sorry for the overload on pics, but I just couldn’t get enough!! ;D
I probably didn’t do it right, but I just wanted to know how it feels like to stand ‘en pointe’ (of corse I hold on to my barre)
and it was unbelievable!! I can’t wait to start practice in them!!
I have no idea why but I was craving sweet and salty really bad so I had a (not so little) snack
count this times two or even three!!
sporting the point-shoes!! yay!!!
Of course I had to think about Jee from to dance among the stars… the whole time!!! 😀
I will stop now, I’m a little dissapointet at how much I ate after “dinner” but that was yesterday and know I try to do better today!!
Hope all of you had a wonderful Monday – or even an OK one!! 😉
Wish you a joyful and sunny Tuesday!!!

Lots of hugs and positiv energy to all of you!!
