Well following the realisation and acceptance that I am 100% responsible for my life and achieving my goals I am finally feeling the ED slipping away into the background. Truthfully, there is just so much else going on that I would rather focus on.
Moving into College:
Next year 2011, I want to be able to move in to live on campus at university. It is a really exciting prospect and I would love to do but of course I have to be well enough first. Anyway I have made the first step, I have started completing the application form!!
- I have applied to join the university's leadership program. It is very focused on networking, skil development and international contribution and I think its a great opportunity and I am keen to try and participate. Again, filled out the application form and sent it in. Fingers crossed.
I am taking 100% responsibility for my own eating. From now on, if I am going to put something in my mouth, I am going to take full responsibility for doing so. No more excuses. I managed to go to the supermarket unaccompanied twice today without buying any extra food even though I wanted too. I am really really pleased!!!!
I am currently on leave from my job because I have had uni exams and so this week I am going to phone up my boss and organise what days she wants me to come back once exams are over instead of waiting for her to phone me. New and responsible Amy!!!
I have organised to see my friends this weekend. I have made concrete plans and committed to showing up and going out on both Friday and Saturday night. I am really nervous but I am still going to go!! I always have a ball once I arrive, its getting ready that stresses me. Following the vein of Marnik's wonderful advice, I have accepted getting ready stresses me out and made it really simple. I am going to keep it super simple and be one of those effortlessly beautiful girls.
