I've always been lucky to work with people I get along with...or at least the people I work closely with always seem to click with me. To the awkward people that sound like they are excluding you basically cause you're new, I say kill em with kindness. Maybe don't try engage in their conversation, but always be super polite to them. They may change their bad 'tude. Does that make sense?
Hello! I am so sorry to read about your ankle! I hope it heals quickly for you!!
In response to the comment you left on my page (back on the 8th - sorry it's take me so very long!!), sticking with it really is something many of us struggle with. Like you, I LOVE food too! So it really is a matter of deciding how/what you want to eat. What flavors do you enjoy the most out of food? We can season things to taste the way we like, often without adding a ton of fat or calories. Play around with spices, this might help. I'm a BIG fan of chocolate...thankfully dark chocolate! I bought a bag of dark chocolate hershey kisses. I'm allowed 3 a day, and I spread them out, and really treat myself when I need it the most. Some days I only have 1. While I try to eat clean most of the time, I'm a relist, and know that I enjoy things that do have sugar, and that is OK. I don't believe in cheat days. I think those are dangerous, but everyone is different.
So my best advice is to just keep trying. Things don't happen overnight. Be patient with yourself and allow yourself time to find what will work best with you for food. I hope this helps you some. Oh, and as far as frozen, contrary to popular belief, frozen is just fine! Any fruits and veggies of the frozen type are good (but with fruits don't get anything with added sugars). Go for frozen skinless chicken breasts, they are good to have on hand. Chicken can be cooked up so many different ways, have fun mixing things up!
I will be around more now moving forward, so feel free to stop by and I promise it won't take me weeks to get back to you!
Good luck with the ankle...stay strong! Set backs happen, but they don't have to destroy us!
