i had my first appointment at duke today in three months, and it was pretty good all in all. my weight is very normal and my mentality couldn't be any better. however, they do want me to continue to take my medication until the winter and then i can try to come off of it. they were proud of me, which was an awesome feeling to say the least.
on a not so good note, if you've been following my blog, you know that i'm lactose intolerant. i have been able to continue to eat yogurt though. well lately, i've been having a probably throwing up a lot of what i eat and having tummy issues and being really shaky. apparently this is in correlation with my recent obsession with eating yogurt at least twice a day. i was giving an ultimatum to not eat ANY form of dairy. i seriously teared up, i don't know what to do! we stopped at whole foods and picked up a couple of soy yogurts and coconut yogurt, but soy usually doesn't agree with me and i'm not a fan of coconut :(
here are my goodies i got:
coconut milk yogurt, soy yogurt, vegan cheddar, and i finally tried carob! IT WAS AMAZINGG. better than chocolate, i swear. those are carob covered almonds and raisins.
mini whole wheat pita rounds, baked blue tortilla chips, sf english toffee syrup, MY N.C. STATE LICENSE PLATE!, dark chocolate bacon bar, world market sea salt dark chocolate bar, raw foods blueberry crunch bar, odwalla superfood bar, and NUTRITIONAL YEAST FINALLY!
-i'm beyond excited to have finally picked up some nutritional yeast, i've seen all of these recipes and now i can finally make them!
-the sea salt bar is just as good as the sea salt lindt bar for half the price
-the bacon dark chocolate? GASMIC. totally worth 6 dollars.
-here is what my car looks like. before vs. after.
totally creepin' :)
i think the weather has had tons to do with my mood. case and point:
"holla if you're ready for some summer nights...♥"
to continue with my random posting, here was my monstrous dinner from sweet tomatoes tonight:
holy roughage. and this was afteri ate some.
honestly, i wasn't really impressed with sweet tomatoes, they didn't even had BALSAMIC! i had to use italian, which i'm sure had dairy in it. but it did tide me over for a good bit.
the rest of my life in a nutshell? the new boy is going greatt, jeff and i don't hate each other or anything, i still love casey (HOLLAAAAAAAAAAA SOULMATE!), i have a new roommate!, i'm struggling in calculus but i'm getting it together now, my rash is better except around my eyes, american idol sucks this year, soccer is amazing, i strained my left flank, we have our next game thursday night, and i leave for europe in t-minus eight days :)))))
oh, and i got a blackberry tour. heard. that.
love you guys!
