It’s friday already? This only means, time for me to be really cheesy and post some [dot dot dot] discoveries!
foodie-discovery: The most filling, voluminous dinner I’ve had in a while.
This is a monstrous salad from our favorite neighborhood creative Italian place, Rose Angelis. Almost everything on there has copious amounts of butter, cream, and cheese – and I was really not in the mood to eat any of that stuff. They always serve a giant salad like this one as a special, but in all my years of coming here, I’ve never ordered it. So glad I changed that.
summer-fun-discovery: new favorite summer nail polish color.
self-discovery: Yes, this is the second week in a row I’m doing one of these, but that’s part of the reason I created this blog. I’m gaining weight again – and no, it’s not muscle, I haven’t even looked at a scale. I can see and feel it in my thighs, arms and middle, and it’s throwing me off. I have tried to eat and exercise intuitively, but I’m not sure my brain and body are quite communicating. I did recently stop chewing gum, but I’m not sure that is the cause. My schedule with work and meals has been really off (on a normal, afternoon work day I eat ‘lunch’ at around 4 and ‘dinner’ around 9…). I have very little consistency at the moment, and it’s been harder to gauge my eats. It’s taking everything in me now not to break down with guilt and self-doubt. I’m turning to the blog world here, because I know there are people out there that can identify issues like these.
I hate being such a downer, but part of me trying to repair my relationship with food comes with not hiding anything anymore. So here I am, telling it all!
Headed to the family’s beach house tomorrow, after a day of working the booth at the Taste of Chicago. Happy Canada day, and 4th of July weekend!
Got any awesome weekend plans? do tell!
