What I Ate Today 3/17/14

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  We don’t really celebrate, but the kids’ Dad was Irish, so Woohoo! Spent all morning cleaning grease and sticky fingerprints off of the kitchen cabinets and walls around our house.  Crazy kids! 🙂

Went on a walk and was feeling a little wierd about not knowing what is going to happen in the near future- after I graduate, we are just going to play it by ear.  And then I decided to take a slightly different path than normal and I saw a beautiful tree that reminded me that sometimes taking a risk can bring amazing surprises.  So I felt mostly better.

And it was a good eating day for me.  As someone who used to have an eating disorder, I still struggle with allowing myself to indulge.  And I felt indulgently healthy today.
