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…

Eats From the Week and Adding Calories

I missed out on WIAW this week. It’s been a busy week with many late evenings out of the house. But there’s been some good eats, so I’m using this Friday to recap some of the goodness that’s been keeping my belly happy. I’ve been adding extra calories, since I, you know, officially made that a thing and all.  I can’t…

Current Thoughts On Food and Working Out

  So I started back to working out this week.  Well, ok, I was never completely not going to the gym.  I was still going, on occasion, over the last number of months, but my visits were so unfocused. Most of them were just walks on the treadmill or bikes on the stationary bike as a means to read my scripts or let my mind wander.  I would do some occasional all…

A Rant: Why Do I Feel Like I Eat More Than Anyone Else?

So I actually wrote this post over a month ago, and then chose not to post it. But over the past couple weeks, I’ve had a few experiences that brought me back to see what I had written.  Specifically – I was in the dressing room (oh the wonderful things you hear when you spend hours a day in a small dressing room filled with women looking at themselves in wall sized mirros).&nbsp…

WIAW: The Steps I HAVE made

When looking over my summer thus far, it could be very easy to slip into a self deprecating mindset. I have not made the strides or steps that I had initially thought I’d make in my recovery. And to that, yes, I am disappointed in myself. But more than disappointed, I guess I can say I am humbled and accepting of how obviously hard this work is, and that I no doubt set too lofty…

Friday Top Three #3: Recommitting

Linking up with the fabulous Kate for a wordy Friday Top Three! Top Three Highs:   Tuesday’s mood. On Tuesday – the day after returning from my 5 days away at the folk festival – I was just in a really lovely mood. My work decided it apparently wasn’t important to inform me that my evening shift had changed to a 9 am start, so if I hadn’t called the night before just…

What I Ate Wednesday: Just Keep Swimming, Just Keep Swimming…

I’m sorry guys. I feel like I’m swimming through the trenches this week, and dragging you in with me.  Life is just taking everything I have right now. I don’t know where my emotions are at. My stomach is in a perma knot of fear and anxiety. I have zero focus or clarity about anything. I mean – I’ve tried working on three different blog posts now and can&#8217…

Week In Review: Pushing Through Lethargy

Last week wasn’t that fun guys.  I’m just feeling so. bloody. tired. Physically, like crud. My body doesn’t want to move. All week I felt heavy and could barely keep my eyes open – even at work standing up. And with that, my mood has been pretty low. Motivation and care is nearly zilch. I don’t know if it was more the weather (rainy and cloudy all week), &nbsp…

Week In Review: If Only We Didn’t Have to Sleep

Good morning friends,  Coming to you at the end of a very rainy week. Currently sipping away at a latte and staring aimlessly at the grey sky and pitter pattering sidewalk. I actually love this scene. I like my sun but there is something comforting about a rainy, yet still mild, morning or afternoon. Probably my favorite type of weather (for a short time at least).  Rainy days and lattes To sum up what was/could have…
