I’m Not Alone

by Lauren on September 21, 2011

So apparently, I am not alone.  So many of you shared your similar feelings on doctors and drugs from my last post.  There was some really good conversation sparked so if you get a chance, read through some of the comments.  You all have some really great input and I thank you for sharing that.

I’m going in tomorrow for some blood work and tests so hopefully I will get the chance to speak to the doctor but one thing is for sure, I’m going to make my intentions very clear.  I feel that too many people don’t take enough initiative in voicing their own opinion or concerns with their doctors.  We place so much trust in their diagnosis and that it is 100% correct but we rarely seek another opinion or venture to figure things out on our own.  If I’ve learned anything over the past several years it is that the ONLY person that knows your body best is YOU.  I’ve been to a few doctors who pulled out their laptops as I was describing my symptoms and web md’d them.  No joke!  I’m pretty sure I am capable of going a google search myself thank you very much.

Not to say that this is the case with all doctors.  Again, I want to make that clear.  I fully believe that there are many wonderful wonderful people in the medical field but they are the minority unfortunately, or at least from my experiences.  I’ll keep holding on to hope though….I always do. :)

So moving along….

I’ve noticed for the past few weeks that many people are playing this WIAW game. (What I ate Wednesday)  Since I usually document “what I ate, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday”  I guess it’s pretty ordinary for me, but still fun to play along.


1/4 C raw oats, white peach, raspberries, peach chobani, almond butter, chia, granola

I can definitely tell that summer fruits are on the out.  Still not bad per say but just not the same as they were even a week ago.

I also came to a realization while eating this.  Today, Allie mentioned that she prefers yellow peaches to white and I think I agree but I definitely like white nectarines over yellow ones.  The irony?


Greek Salad with a Veggie Burger from Juice n' Java

I had a lunch meeting with a coworker today but we decided to take our meals to go and just head back to my house for a working lunch.

Smoothie: Strawberry, Banana, Pineapple

It’s been awhile since I’ve put together a good BFD meal.  Heck, it’s been awhile since I’ve been home on a week night to cook a real meal for that matter.

Egg white omelet with spinach, sun dried tomatoes, broccoli and feta

Panera cherry vanilla bagel with cream cheese and cherry jam

Hot dang these bagels are amazing!  Toly and I snatched a few when we went for lunch a few days ago and I’ve waited all week for them.

Well, that concludes my WIAW.  Wait, that’s a lie.  I will definitely be eating something before bed….probably a bowl of fruit as I usually do but I guess it won’t be documented.  Hmmm, I’m already failing at this game….


Name the BEST thing you ate today – mine would have to be that bagel.  Do yourself a huge favor and go get one asap!  They are a limited time flavor so hurry before it’s too late.
