The Realization That This Is How It Is: Getting Jacked up #2

For those of you who stopped by yesterday, thank you. Yesterday’s post paints an image of how I am feeling, in a general sense, now in my life. Something I am very thankful for. I write posts like those to keep reminding myself what true health, happiness and nourishment means to me, especially maybe when those thoughts start to dwindle. Like… last week. Last week, guys, was brutal.   I got jacked up. Again.  &nbsp…

Week In Review: Baking Self Care And Sugary Treats

Goodmorning, I’ve had a really tough week. Just… ugh. I haven’t been very mentally stable. A lot of anxiety. A lot of guilt. Very ungrounded. Negative coping. Tough feelings. I wrote a post about it, actually – thinking it would be my Week In Review. But then I realized I missed my normal way of ending the week: by listing the little accomplishments that soothed my soul. So I’m back focusing on just…

My Journey With Hypothalamic Amenorrhea Continues: Digestion and Traditional Chinese Medicine

My journey with hypothalamic amenorrhea continues.  My journey recovering from an eating disorder… continues. Even though I can say with utmost certainty that my eating is in a good place, restriction is few and far between, and my mental space for self love is better than its ever been, I still struggle with low body weight and zero menstrual cycle.  You know, sometimes when you’ve been dealing with these things for so many years, you…

Feelings and Food: My Struggles With Intuitive Eating

Goodmorning friends,  I’m currently sitting at a McDonalds having an early morning breakfast and (decaf) coffee. I have an appointment with a dietician across the street, so I’m just having some sit down time before going in.  This dietician. I saw her for the first time about a month ago.  It wasn’t really something out of my choosing, but rather a request from the nurse I’ve been seeing.&nbsp…

Levels of Stimulation: Where Is Your Sweet Spot?

Mmmmm how bout THAT for a titlating title, huh!? Don’t worry, we’re keeping things PG here on the spoon. Just doing some thinking out loud.      So the other week I was going into a coffeeshop to spend an hour or so doing some writing, as I often do. I’ve mentioned many times that coffee shops are my happy place. They are where I get the most done and…

How Hitting Rock Bottom May Be A Catalyst For Change

Yesterday (Tuesday)… was the worst. Like, one of those days that, as it is happening, you file into your top ten collection of worst days…ever.  I got on the wrong transit route not once, but twice. After having a driver miss my stop, then running four blocks, then having to take a taxi in a panic so I wouldn’t be late for an audition. Then riding the transit for two…

How I am Learning to Unplug and Slow Down (Part 2)

In continuation of yesterday’s post… I’d like to share what I have been doing to unplug and slow down. And I do mean practice. This is work. Even after the initial discomforts, it is something that I’ve been needing to consciously put into place. Even schedule and plan. Maybe this is not needed for everyone. But for anyone like me who is sensitive to overstimulation yet finds themself…

Why I Am Practicing Unplugging and Slowing Down (Part One)

  I had much I wanted to say about today’s topic, so I am making this a two-parter. Today I am writing about the anxiety levels I have experienced over the last couple of months and the connection I found it to have with technology. Come back tomorrow when I will continue by listing the ways I have been practicing unplugging and how I am consciously making an effort to decrease my anxiety.  &nbsp…

Week In Review: Updates from a Puddy Brain

Like last week, blog posts just aren’t flowing these days. I have much I could say. Many things, many thoughts, many transitions, many changes going on…. yet I’m having trouble grasping them all into a cohesive blog post. Anyone else find when they have more going on it is actually hardest to write? Or maybe this is part of a transition I’m finding myself currently in. Whatever the case, its…

It Was A Week Where… (Week In Review)

It was a weird week. A week where I had enough feelings go through me for an entire half year. In fact this is the first time I’ve sat down to do my Week In Review and just can’t get a grasp on where to start.  …what happens when my hair person is late. #notmyspecialty It was a week where…   I ate doggy bagged sweet potato fries and onion rings for dinner…
