Branden's Baptism

This summer my eating habits have gone off the deep end. I've been eating anything and everything and in large quantities and it's time to veer back on track before I kill myself with all the Ramen and cookies.

I've noticed that the way I eat has a HUGE effect on me not just physically, but spiritually and emotionally. These last few weeks I've been depressed and my anxiety has been keeping me from doing things with friends. The biggest reason I feel this way is because I'm not happy with myself. And I'm not happy with myself because I've been eating badly. It's a cycle.

Also my acne is erupting. It's so red and it's just worse than it's ever been. It's disgusting. I know that if I eat healthier my skin will get better.

Today for breakfast I had berries. The strawberries and blueberries are just so good right now. I snacked on them all day.

At about noon I had overnight oatmeal with cocoa powder, chia seeds, almond milk and banana.

For dinner I had brown rice, black beans and leftover asparagus.

Then for a snack later I had 1/2 banana with almond butter.

This was my third day eating like this, no dairy and no sugar. And I feel so much better, and it's only the third day! My head feels really clear and I didn't feel depressed or sad once today.

Branden's birthday cake that I made turned out really good! This was before I got back on track with my eating. Ha ha.

I played piano at Branden's baptism last Sunday. He got to be baptized on the exact day he turned 8. It was really special. I was really scared to play the piano. But I had been practicing so hard. I was so nervous and I messed up a little on When I Am Baptized but I played I Am A Child Of God well. I've been playing piano for exactly one year now. I'm happy that I am developing a talent that I can use to serve the ward.

  1. Yeepers, eating healthy is super hard to begin with, but it gets easier every day! And you're right - it makes such a difference!

    It's SOOO awesome that you played for your brother's baptism!
