January 2021 Highlights

Spring semester started. I am taking a psychology research class and an eating disorder class. The eating disorder class is very interesting. I am pretty sure at one point in my life I had an eating disorder.

Puppy started Puppy Preschool – it sounds as cute as you think! Because of Covid, we are in a smaller class – which is good. Puppies get easily distracted with each other and want to spend the time playing. So far we have been working on lay down, sit, stay, and walking on a leash.

My birthday passed. Every year I am surprised that I am in my 30’s because I certainly do not feel like it. I feel like I am still in my 20’s and feel very unsure about the direction my life is headed. I am hoping that once school is over, I feel like a little more like an “adult.” For this year’s birthday, a few close friends came over and we played Cards Against Humanity and ate yummy food. My boyfriend remembered that I had mentioned I’d like to have a charcuterie board and surprised me by making one!

I found out that I have adrenal fatigue, low progesterone, and an intolerance to potatoes, wheat and soy. I’ve been dealing with a lot of health issues for a year now. And seems like every other month something new reveals itself. I have been trying to do a gluten free diet, it is a struggle, but I think I am getting the hang of it. I’ve done really well with not having any potatoes – which really makes me sad because I love mashed and scalloped potatoes. I met with my dietician and she felt like I was not eating enough. We decided to try intuitive eating – I’ve only been doing this for a week and I am not sure how I feel about it. I have already gained the weight back that I have lost since November, so feeling a bit discouraged. If anyone has any suggestions, please leave a comment!
