Had a friend come to visit that I haven't seen in quite a while and she is going to visit....

Cleaned my house! Well, as much as I could until my back screamed at me. (I know most don't think of this as a 'do for me' topic but I do, I can't stand a dirty house!!!!)

I got my nails done! Hehe.
And I'm going to see friends tonite for a movie night, which means we're gonna watch a million movies and crash on the couch.
And I'm seeing the boy before he goes to California cry.gif I'm gonna miss him sooooo much.

I've been pampering myself to no end.
When we got the hotel room for the Tori Amos concert, I sprung for the master suite... omg, so amazing. I feel like a princess. A princess with no money anymore, but still. tongue.gif

This may not seem big, but its HUGE for me ~ this evening i ate a meal (or rather a pizza) out at Pizza hut with my brother. dance.gif
This is huge because recently i have had real issues with eating, and particularily feeling sick (and at times making myself sick) after eating.... but i managed it ~ i can't say it was easy, because it was hard.... but we ate out at pizza hut (so no opportunities to be sick) and then we went to watch a film at the cinema, it was good and i feel so much stronger for eating ~ i hope i am getting back on the right pathway with eating.

I didn't let hubby drag me into the game. For me that's a major accomplishment!!! I did that for me, not him. I wasn't in the mood to get into the "us" discussion, so I didn't. I wasn't rude, I wasn't mean, and I wasn't about to explain my feelings again for the 120000000000000000 time.

So I came over to my mother's, where she's out of town to work on her computer. Feeling pretty calm these day and loving it! dance.gif

I took a nap today because I was feeling pretty down and exhausted. I also cooked a good dinner (instead of the cr*p I have been eating since mom left) and cleaned a bit of the house

I ignored the dishes, and ate an ice cream bar with no care in the world. It helped!

I worked out today, even though I didn't really feel like it mentally (but my body, bless it, wanted to, so I did). I'm glad I did. I feel so much better when I'm exercising regularly.

I am also working on a plan for my trip next week to give myself some support while I'm away from home and my usual supports.

i took the day off work to do some self-care for once.
and then i called my T when i ended up hiding all day instead of self-caring because i was hurting so much.

then i took a 3 hour nap and felt a little better.
