I haven’t had a chance to say thank you for sharing your thoughts and personal experiences with me in the comments and via email regarding Tuesday’s NEDA week post. When I receive even just one message from someone thanking me for helping them or questions for further guidance, I know I am reaching the right people. Sometimes, as I mentioned, I feel like we talk so much (or even too much) on the topic of amenorrhea and the female athlete triad, but clearly, it’s beyond important and necessary to continue to do so.
I was just saying to Amanda yesterday that as I look back on my own experience from years ago (when I was 22), I still can’t get over how uninformed I was on this topic, how it seemed like there was no such thing as not eating enough, that it was you were either anorexic or bulimic and if you were eating and not throwing up, you were just fine. But that’s not the case, as we know. I am sure I will cover more aspects of this subject again soon but please feel free to email me or leave a comment on today’s post with anything you may want me to cover in relation to amenorrhea and the female athlete triad. I am not a doctor or nutritionist but I am happy to help however I can 🙂
Anyway, it’s Friday! So happy for the weekend and so happy to run long outdoors tomorrow. I really missed my routine long run last weekend.
My food shopping is out-of-the-way because somehow I have fallen into the pattern of getting it done on Thursday afternoons. I think that once I went food shopping on a Thursday, I ran out of everything we needed come the next Thursday so that’s how Thursday became food shopping day…at least for now.
Nothing too new in the mix this week aside from getting fresh strawberries for a change, grapes per my son’s request and some cereal. I was in the mood for the granola Red Mango uses (Nature’s Path Pumpkin Flax) so I picked up a box at Trader Joe’s and then while in the cereal section, I grabbed the Fruity O’s too just because.
I honestly cannot formulate a solid dinner plan for next week.
I just can’t. I don’t know what we want and I don’t feel like knowing right now what we want. Instead, I have a bunch of our staples in the house that are easy to throw to together and we are going to wing it a bit more than usual (aside from knowing pizza night is Tuesday).
I did come across a crazy amount of tasty-sounding recipes this week though so instead of sharing a dinner plan, I want to share all of the recipe links with you instead.
Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowls (Paleo/Whole 30)
Other Dinner Ideas:
Cavity Bars – Brownies, cookies and cookie dough in one? May make these on Sunday.
DIY Cereal Bowl Cake – I just love how this looks! So so creative and cute.
Have a great weekend!Thanks, food shopping & recipes galore #recipes #mealprep #dinner #NEDAwareness #paleo #vegetarian #fitfluential Click To Tweet
