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…

Friday Five! Roses and Buds.

I’m finally linking up for a real “Favourites Friday,” post! I think it is so important for me – and everyone – to take time and remember the things that made – or are currently making – me smile, or something I accomplished and am looking forward to. Even in the hard times, I need to remember there is always something to celebrate. So here we go! What was happening this week, “five style&#8221…

WIAW: “Acting your age”

It’s been a little heavy around here lately. I apologize. But… I also don’t apologize because this place is for honesty and showing up in whatever mess you find yourself in. It’s just been one of those patches. But ALAS, enough of that!! Time to lighten things up! And what a better way than by simply celebrating .. FOOOOOD. Thanks, as always, to Jenn for the link up! These are my eats from Monday…

What Am I Learning?

Ancora Imparo: “Still, I am learning” (Michelangelo) This weekend was full of lessons. I learned that relationships require complete vulnerability, and that this vulnerability requires that you uncover all the things that do not make you perfect. The things that prove you, too,  are flawed and make mistakes. I learned that it may fill you with deep sadness to have those truths unveiled. Those truths that you have always known about yourself, but have secretly hoped no one…

Life. And How To Get Yourself Back.

Life. It just loves its roller coaster rides, doesn’t it? It just loves to take you up up up, then throw you a mighty curve ball.  Testing you constantly. Like that damn high school teacher always pulling pop quizzes on you… but only on the lessons where you just so happened to nap off in class. Anyway. This is going to be a wordy, maybe not quite comprehensive post. I just need to write. Right now I…

Thinking Out Loud: In the Brain

Thanks to Amanda for letting me spew out some thoughts that are crowding my brain this week.  I already feel lighter! 1. Smiles: Crunchy peanut butter is so much better than smooth. Like, wow. I bought some last week after years of just having the smooth stuff. I think I knew I liked the crunchy better but I was probably scared of the added pieces of nut… Ugh (#foodfearSMASH).  I never see any other butters offered crunch though&#8230…

WIAW: Same same, but different.

Hello all foodie partyers! Sadly, I missed the coinciding “first day of fall” link up last week. But you better believe I was celebrating. The beta-carotene over dosing  intake has definitely been in full swing. Is my skin turning orange yet? For this week, I thought I’d go extra special and bring in TWO days of eats. My last two school days, to be precise. I had to laugh a little at myself when going…
