Lazy Sunday

I had my SO wake me up early this morning so I could FINALLY satisfy my craving for pancakes. I made buttermilk ones. Really simple recipe. 2 cups self-rising flour, 2 1/4 cups buttermilk, splash of vanilla extract, 4 Tablespoons melted butter, dash of salt, 2 eggs, and 3 Tablespoons of sugar. Don’t overmix because then your pancakes will go flat and chewy. No one likes chewy pancakes.

Not pictured, but my in-law’s Golden Doodle got his own little pancakes. The animals in this household totally aren’t spoiled rotten. Speaking of spoiled animals, Velveteen got to have cilantro since my MIL made taquitos. I made a TikTok of her eating, so you can check that out if you liked the last one. I’ve included some pictures of her stuffing her face.

After those really hard, bad days, taking a short break from the diet was helpful. I didn’t gorge myself or anything today, but I tried to take my mind off food. I decided that since I was up so early, I’d try to get a few more things done. I printed out some DBT cards I found on Etsy. I definitely recommend these DBT cards. They’re only $12 and a great way to practice DBT as well as mindfulness coloring.

My anal retentive side side spotted one mistake on the cards with font. I shot an e-mail over to the creator who has fixed it! Thank goodness, because it was driving me nuts. Now I’m just trying to remind myself that I don’t have to reprint all of the cards … temptation is strong. That used to be a huge problem for me in high school and college. I never could get my notes done in class because I’d rip up the page and restart writing things.

I grace you with pictures of my orange cat. He cannot fight his way out of a paper bag… SIGH…

Sorry for not having plethora of things to say today, but I mostly did a lot of self-soothing activities and worked on distracting myself from how bad I’ve been feeling. I didn’t really practice any DBT, but at least I attempted to look at the flashcards and considered the different skills available to use. Even if you can’t perfect it, having the knowledge that you’ve got the tools available is a bit comforting. I’ve got this! It might not be handled, but it’s coming along…
