Healthy, cheap, and lasts for several meals–I always forget that pasta hits the trifecta of food awesomeness. Also, that sauce has vegetables in it, so BOOM on my usually non-existent daily veggie intake. Bonus points: gluten-free pasta is good for my hypoglycemia. Keeping me balanced in more ways than one.

I’m not normally someone who plans my meals in advance; I can’t even shop for more than one meal at a time when I’m at the store. But I decided to keep my entire day in mind when I went shopping today, and this is what I came back with (along with egg white and kale, tomato, goat cheese sandwiches).

I also cleaned my bathroom and washed my sheets and comforter. That’s a heck of a good re-plug! I haven’t done this many productive things in one day in awhile.

But this post isn’t about checking as many things off my to-do list as I can. It’s about celebrating even one minor victory of accomplishment. I haven’t been the best at keeping up with this blog everytime I do something that causes me to plug back into productivity. But that’s okay. I’m here now. Today is what matters. What can I do…today?

Furthermore, anytime I want to feel guilty that I’m not doing adventurous, educational, or philanthropic things to share here, I look at where I am in my life. Barely hanging on to one, insufficient job, struggling to stay in college, about to have a drastic change in my living situation that I am ill-prepared to handle, oh YEAH, and focusing on my recovery. I have to be a little selfish right now. The past few months have been survival mode; that by nature is selfish.

So the point is what I can do today. Sometimes, that means just not cussing anyone out. Other days it just means shutting myself away for a day of rest and relaxation. And days like today? I’m glad to have ’em.
