What a difference a month can make. The difference between my fall break a month ago and my Thanksgiving break (which ends tonight) is astounding. As I’ve written about, my eating disorder tendencies resurfaced about a month and a half ago. I binged basically the entire time I was home on fall break. The binging and guilt put me in a terrible mood and I was unable to enjoy my family or friends while I was home. I’m happy to report that my Thanksgiving break was MUCH better. I have to be honest and tell you that I did have some “fat feelings” and I did break down in tears one time over food I ate, but I didn’t binge or restrict. I had a wonderful time with my family and my second family (the Kummerers!) And I’m completely rejuvenated to kick some major butt on final exams…which start in 2.5 weeks..AHH!
I thought I would do a little photo recap of my lovely Thanksgiving break.
Darren and I ran a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning. It was a 3 miler, my longest distance to date, and my first time running with other people. The last half mile was hard, but I had an amazing time. I am definitely looking forward to doing more races in the future!
Emergency Diet Coke run right before our Thanksgiving feast. I clearly need the caffeine.
My mom makes a mean thanksgiving feast. Her stuffing is to die for! I had a plate full of stuffing, corn, mashed potatoes, and a dinner roll. Yes I skipped the turkey. I only like turkey in lunch meat form. I’m aware I have weird food preferences.
Pumpkin pie was for dessert! Made by yours truly
Following the feast, we played board games.
And put up Christmas decorations! Westley wanted to help.
Friday I and my sisters made cupcakes with our adorable cousin Carly.
They were from a box mix, but they’re so darn cute! The hats were cut out from graham crackers. I do not recommend putting yourself through that torture.
Friday night I went out to dinner with Darren’s family. I ate a yummy chicken burrito thingy and had a really good time. Darren’s family is super nice to me. Saturday was spent watching the OSU/Michigan game with Darren. Michigan won which I’m super grateful for because Michigan win=happy boyfriend! Sunday Darren’s mom took Darren and I out to breakfast. Then, I packed up and headed back to school where I am now currently watching my lastest TV obsession, “Once Upon a Time”.
Happy Sunday evening
