Thanking your ED

Thanking your eating disorder. A blasphemous notion. A notion which, a year ago, would have caused me to scoff in angry disgust. Why would I want to thank something that has taken away so much from my life; something that has caused me to lose relationships and provoke worry in my family; something that has made me into someone I don’t know; something that took away my dream. Not even my hospitalization suggested such a notion. And then…

Kale Pesto Recipe (plus WIAW: The Gym Was Closed…)

Today I bring you a super delicious, super colorful and super nutritious recipe for Kale Pesto. A lightened up, less expensive take on the classic – but with all the flavor that’d you expect (and twice the nutrients!).   Hi everyone – and welcome to my “new and improved” site. I’m still figuring stuff out and seeing if I like this current layout etc, so bare with me as I…

Thanksgiving

To all my fellow Canadians – Happy Thanksgiving! Today is Thanksgiving Monday, which means this weekend was (and may continue to be) full of thoughts of family, gratitude, fall colors, friends and turkey. Thanksgiving – and all holidays – always bring their tug-a-war of ups and downs. It’s hard being away from family, and just the fall air can fill you with nostalgia and homesickness.  And eating disorders…. hate holidays. Sigh. This has got to…

Fear of Failure

In the Artists Way, Julia Cameron poses the question, “What are your procrastinations with moving on from here? What is the payoff to staying stuck? What are your hidden fears?” After some digging, and letting myself be 150% honest with myself, there were three words that summed up everything. Fear. Of. Failure. My whole life, I have felt like a fraud. I have always been “that girl that could do everything.” “Miss perfect.&#8221…

Update. Goals, Strategies and Moving Forward.

In alluding to my last post… I am in reset mode. Even before this last weeks’ event, I could feel myself slipping into cautious territory.   I wasn’t giving into symptoms so much that they were once again taking control, but the thoughts were beginning to gain strength. When school began, my routine completely shifted and control of my days was taken away… something I have greatly struggled with in the past. I found myself sitting &#8211…

Reset.

Hi all, I haven’t written in a while. Well, I’ve tried. I’ve written or started a number of posts actually, but each one ended up in the trash or put on hold. I’ve been all over the place. My thoughts, my feelings… I haven’t been able to grasp what I am feeling or thinking or what I want to do at any given time. Each time I wrote I…

Thinking out loud: Those little things.

Speaking of “thinking out loud,” have you read Michael Singhers’ book, “Untethered Soul?” I just started it for the second time. I actually think this is the first and only time I’ve ever voluntarily read a book twice. I read it last fall around this time, and just kind of picked it up again on impulse a couple of weeks ago. The week before starting school/ending summer, I was beginning to feel…

…”I’ve been waiting my whole life for this.”

New beginnings.

Like most of you, I am feeling a strong sense of the “end of summer” emotions vibes.  A lot of looking back, a lot of processing, a lot of reminiscing (a lot of “oh my god I only have 1 week to do EVERYTHING I said I’d do!!!). And as always, some guilt about not doing some things I said I’d do. But…It’s been a good summer. Since I…

When it just doesn’t feel right.

source Recovery is a very strange thing. (cough cough… uh… yeah, duh?! you say) I don’t think you could ever describe to someone how it feels. For me, its been a very long, slow and gradual sense of shift. I don’t think I’d even use the word “change,” as even that sounds too abrupt. It’s been small shift… after small shift…after small shift… until…
