Summer break


It’s officially summer break! It technically has been for 3 weeks, but I’ve been in California on vacation with my now-fiancé having so much fun that it hasn’t sunk in. But yay! No more school for a couple month! I registered for fall classes last night. I’m taking Human Growth and Development and Human Anatomy and Physiology. I expect to be VERY busy with these classes, but I’m excited to be working toward my nursing degree.

I have no idea what I’m going to do with myself during summer break. During the spring semester I was taking classes and doing treatment. Now I’m doing outpatient once a week and my DBT group once a week, but other than those, I’m completely free. I feel a little overwhelmed by freedom. And when I have nothing to do is when I tend to engage in eating disorder behaviors, so I need to find a way to set up some kind of schedule for myself this summer.

That said, I did really well on my vacation. I had some restricting, but I did pretty well at following my meal plan and my fiancé was a huge help in keeping me on track. He was very supportive and encouraging the whole time.

  1. I know that empty feeling when holiday comes. Actually I felt it when I was still at school/in college bc then I wouldn’t see my favourite teachers and have those cool classes. When you start working a job you 35 hours a week though you start enjoying your vacation time. 🙂

  4. Free time used to be quite dangerous for me. So tempting to over exercise or conveniently go places where I couldn’t eat, etc, etc. I found that creating structure was singular in having the world make sense in any circumstances. I see you posted this 2 days ago so am curious if you’ve given anymore thought to your upcoming freedom? 🙂
