Good Thursday morning beautiful friends of mine!
I’m just sitting down to eat breakfast before I head to the elementary school for the day. I’ll be working there as a part of my field study course. We are conducting surveys today to see how well our program was implemented and to learn if any knowledge about physical activity or healthy eating was gained throughout the year so far.
I worked at the school yesterday, too, and am so thankful for this opportunity! I loved working with the younger children and seeing their eyes light up when talking about the meals they had and the activities they took part in over the past few days.
As always, Thankful Thursday is the time of the week I share what else I’ve been thankful for, so let’s get sharing!
Friday, Feb 22 – Going on a peaceful walk in the evening with my boyfriend. There wasn’t a breeze in the air – it was absolutely perfect!
Saturday, Feb. 23 – A delicious dinner made by my boyfriend just for me! My favourite part was the fruit chutney he whipped up with no hesitation at all! It was made with apples, mangoes, onion, brown sugar, and jalapeño jelly. I’m thinking he should start writing recipes for A Dash of Meg I’ll work on him…
Sunday, Feb. 24 – Having brunch at a roadside diner with my boyfriend. We both ordered broccoli and cheddar omelettes. They were good, but nothing compared to the meals he makes me at home!
Monday, Feb. 25 – Talking to Jamie for the first time! I had a 15 minute phone call with Jamie so we could “meet” and chat before her Intuitive Eating Challenge starts in March! I’m so excited to be involved in this challenge and I know it will only bring good things <3
I want to update you more about my IE journey and the talk I had with Jamie, so keep your eyes peeled for upcoming posts!
Tuesday, Feb. 26 – The two hour FaceTime conversation I had with my Mommy <3
Thursday, Feb. 28 – Rest! Normally, I go to yoga on Thursdays with my friend Emily, but last night I was feeling exhausted and new yoga at 6:15 am wouldn’t be the best decision. So, I’m taking it easy this morning, listening to my body, and giving it the rest and extra sleep it was asking for!
Before I leave for today, I’d like to address something and, hopefully, put it to an end finally.
Just as anticipated, Tuesday’s post received quite a bit of attention as well as many negative comments directed toward me. But then, Wednesday rolled around and I was still receiving hurtful comments. In my eyes, the negativity is getting ridiculous and needs to stop.
I published all of the rude comments I received, but then I thought to myself…
I always say A Dash of Meg is a place for positivity!
So, I went ahead and deleted all of the negative comments that were made yesterday.
I hesitated doing this at first because I know I will be told that I’m handling the situation in an “immature” and “irresponsible” manner, but this is how I want to deal with it and I’m ok with that. As my close friend, Kasey, always says “Be true to you!” And this is me being true to me!
So, here’s to A Dash of Meg! A blog that will document my life, the positives and negatives (because my life is not perfect), but it will never be the host of an online battle. Only online love
Have a great Thursday, friends! I love you all!
