WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY | 31/8/16

Yesterday I went into Glasgow with my boyfriend to collect my student card so I thought it would be a bit more interesting to document what I ate on a day where I was out and about. I was reunited with my beloved Boots meal deal and had my third (yes, THIRD) pumpkin spice latte of the season.

So, without further ado, let’s get right on into it.

A RECOVERY PLAYLIST

I love music. It’s one of the few things that has remained a constant in my life through both the good times and the bad. There is nothing I love more than finding a song that either has a super catchy beat or is made up of lyrics that I can 100% relate to. It’s natural for us to lean towards songs that we can connect with and in recovery, music can provide us both with motivation and as an outlet to help express our feelings.

I’ve decided to share my own ‘recovery playlist’ in hope that I can make any of you who are currently struggling’s lives that bit better.

‘PARALYZED’ – AGAINST THE CURRENT

This is one of those songs that can instantly lift my spirits and give me that extra push of motivation when I’m feeling down and defeated. The lyrics are fairly self explanatory and you can relate it to many situations whether it be mental illness or if you’re just feeling a bit lost. The lyric that has always stood out to me the most is “Who is this monster wearing my skin?” When you’re in the grasp of any mental illness it feels like a completely different person has taken over you. This song is a reminder that you can kick ass and overcome your struggles.

WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY | 24/8/16

I recently started a new part time job at Sainsbury’s and with this means that I need to bring some food with me. I work 6pm-10pm which is a bit of an awkward time as I usually have my dinner around 6ish. Due to this change in my ‘eating schedule,’ I thought I would show you what my food looks like on a typical working day.

GETTING BACK YOUR PERIOD

If you’ve struggled with a restrictive eating disorder then you may have experienced something that’s known as an amenorrhea – the loss of your period. As much as this may seem appealing – no period pains is definitely welcome – it’s not a good thing. No period means your body is physically not healthy and can also damage your chances of having children, so the sooner you’re able to get it back the better.

Since my period has thankfully recently returned, I thought I’d share my experience and also some tips on how to get your menstrual cycle going again.

WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY | 10/8/26

Today marked the day that I finally bought myself a new phone after needing a new one for about a year. It also marked the day that I was finally able to play Pokemon Go without it crashing. Better late than never! In order to fuel my new found Pokemon hunting it was important to keep my energy levels up so as always, a day filled with delicious food was necessary.

RECOVERY TALK

This week I uploaded a video talking about eating disorder recovery and opened up about my thoughts and experience. So, today’s blog post will tie in with that as I know that not everyone watches my videos and I want to try and help as many people as possible.

The main point that I want to raise is that recovery from an eating disorder, or just recovery from anything, isn’t a straight road. There are going to be multiple bumps and obstacles to swerve along the way. I’m going to share a bit of advice that I have learned through my own experience.

‘SQUIRREL SISTERS’ COCONUT CASHEW REVIEW

I first discovered Squirrel Sisters through Sourced Box a few months ago and I have been obsessed ever since. Unfortunately, it has proved hard to get my hands on the snacks but thankfully both Sourced Box and new snacking service My Vitamins have sorted me out a few more times with these divine bars. I recently got to try the coconut cashew flavour and let me tell you, it was worth the wait.
