I’m not one for a savory breakfast but I do love the occasional avocado toast on danish rye bread
Bulimia nervosa is a psychological disease characterised by the episodic, uncontrolled and impulsive binge eating followed by self induced vomiting or consumption of laxatives or purgatives to avoid weight gain associated with such behaviour. This specific eating disorder I know all to well, I am a survivor. Bulimia affects mainly women and is usually found in adolescents who experience depression. I remember the countless hours spent hovering over a toilet seat with my fingers down my throat. The tears when I knew there was more to throw up that what was coming out. The excuses to go to the bathroom after eating ANYTHING! I had become so good at it that I had managed to learn to vomit silently. I suffered with Bulimia for a very long time and I was too ashamed to come forward and admit that I needed help.
The back story?
I was raised to believe that appearance was everything, I had to look a certain way, weigh a certain way and anything other than what was expected was an embarrassment. I suffered depression that wasn’t treated because I was silent. What I didn’t realise was whilst because I was doing this for so long my body was suffering from an electrolyte imbalance which can lead to organ failure and even death. I would look at myself in the mirror and think that I wasn’t skinny enough ( I was 40kgs). I wasn’t in a good place mentally or physically. I felt alone and I felt like no one would understand what it feels like to look at food and wonder how many minutes it would take to throw it all up. I got help, not until I had collapsed in the bathroom because my body wasn’t coping with the malnourishment. It wasn’t until I was put in a hospital wing for weeks on end with no contact with anyone did I realise what I was really doing to myself. The hours I had spent vomiting had created scaring in my throat. But I got better, I sought help and I recovered. In fact it’s 10 years this year since I’ve recovered, 10 years since I found myself again. If you or someone you know is going through it or you think someone may be - get help. Have the courage to get the help you need and overcome it.
Live your best life.
I'm so sick of the obsession with skinny. I'm sick of women putting themselves down,I'm sick of the glorification. I'm sick of the health obsessed preachers who are not actually healthy, they are just obsessed. I'm sick of the way fat people are treated in society. I'm sick of the skinny fitness gurus who post pictures with their tight (cut off the circulation to your vagina)pants. This is how people get sick. This is how women develop eating dosorders, body image issues, or just a general feeling of not being good enough. This is why 14 year old girls are putting their fingers down their throat making themselves sick. Do not look at a women with an eating disorder and think that it is just a disorder she developed because something is wrong with her. No no no no no. She developed it in response to her surroundings, the messages of worth. A coping mechanism. And don't look at a fat girl and think she's unhealthy. She could be so much healthier than you. Because health cannot be measured by weight. If you want to talk to me about health, talk to me about emotional wellbeing, what you feed your mind, the quality of your relationships. How you support yourself, the freedom you feel, your relationship with food and your body. But for fuck sake Janet, stop posting pictures of your ass with spiritual caption's that make fuck all benefit to the life of another woman.

Let’s talk HYDRATION💦 Especially during the warmer months, it’s so important to stay hydrated ~ our bodies are made up of 55-75% water, and as little as 2% dehydration can lead to a massive 20% decline in both physical and mental performance😱⭐️
Adequate fluid intake is also super important for digestion and gut function, prevent muscle cramping, skin health, detoxification + elimination, and energy levels🙌🏼
FUN FACT: Fluid retention can be a sign that you aren’t drinking enough fluids, so your body holds onto everything it gets!💧
Of course water is great for hydration, but when we sweat we don’t just lose water, but important electrolytes like sodium and potassium too, which makes mineral-rich foods/drinks like fruit + @purecocobella
coconut water amazing for hydration, as it provides our bodies with those electrolytes lost through sweat🌴💗🍉
One of my favourite ways to hydrate my body during summer 👉🏼 Blended frozen bananas, frozen strawberries, hemp seeds + @purecocobella
And YES, water-rich foods count towards your daily fluid intake!!
and the obsession with chocolate dessert themed breakfasts continues 🍫 this double chocolate chip cookie dough nice cream bowl is definitely the best way to start my sunday 🙏🏼 topped with frozen raspbs, my latest batch of biscoff granola and extra cookie dough chunks 😍 recipe for this one will be up soon! ~ it might be the weekend but I still have the longgggest to do list to get through which seems to be never ending at the moment! I definitely find that writing everything down and crossing it off as I go makes me more accountable of what I need to do and helps me to be more productive! what are your tips? after a couple of rough weeks i’m actually feeling quite motivated, inspired and excited ☺️ so it’s off to do the food shop before getting cracking with everything else! what does your sunday look like? enjoy ✨
Happy sunday everyone! For breakfast i had unmeasured(!!) millet porridge with frozen berries made on almond milk with kiwi, banana, blueberries coconut shrims and agave syrup(!!). I’ve never used any sweetener in my meals especially in porridges, I’ve always had it basically flavorless, just pulp with some fruits. But today millet porridge tasted 100 times better with agave syrup! ✨
It was a really exhausting but successful week, of course there was the moment of guilt, sadness, anger and panic and it happened at Friday (of course after eating pizza with my girlfriend lol, I mean my stomach started to hurt badly so unpleasant thoughts came in and I started crying), but hey I tried and I did it, my emotions and brain just started messing up with me. I’m still going to fight.
Also I broke my rule of weighting myself only at Mondays. Firstly it helped me stop checking my weight everyday, but then it resulted with having obsession that I’m allowed to weigh myself at Mondays. I did it this morning, I seriously thought my weight gonna drastically go up but for two weeks it’s staying the same. And I was shooketh because I ate A LOT for past week. But I guess my metabolism started to work normally and also my mum said I’m more energetic than I was, so yeah remember that food really is a fuel and you’re not gonna gain a shit ton of weight, of course you’ll gain in some cases, this is what your body needs to function in first place!! Also I did a memo with things I need to remember, it’s cliche but it helps me💛
Have a nice day bees!🐝💕

Buongiorno e buona domenica! ☀️ Vi scrivo mentre un autobus 🚎 pieno di ragazzi sta portando anche me a Segovia, per una piccola gita fuori porta. Non ho ancora conosciuto nessuno e molti sono già organizzati con i loro gruppetti. Ma non voglio lasciarmi condizionare dai soliti pensieri: oggi mi prendo per mano e mi dico che non fa niente, che non è colpa mia. Non fa niente se il posto accanto a me è occupato da un ragazzo con gli auricolari che non ha trovato due sedili liberi e vicini per lui e la sua amica; non è colpa mia se non ho ancora parlato con nessuno se non per dare il mio nome e il mio numero di telefono; non fa niente se alla fine della giornata non avrò fatto amicizia con nessuno. Mi regalo questo giorno, comunque vada e qualunque cosa mi riservi. A partire dalla fantastica colazione di stamattina: pancakes ai mirtilli (preparati ieri sera) con skyr ai mirtilli, mirtilli e cocco rapè 🥥. Per i pancakes ho utilizzato un uovo 🥚, un cucchiaio di farina di semola, un cucchiaio di farina di riso, uno di farina di castagne 🌰 e uno di farina di mandorle (queste ultime acquistate ieri, sfuse, in un negozietto fantastico 😍), poco lievito, qualche goccia di liquiflav alla vaniglia @bulkpowders_it
e una manciata di mirtilli. Ho mescolato il tutto in una tazza, ho lasciato riposare in frigo per una mezz'oretta e poi ho cotto i miei pancakes in una padella antiaderente leggermente unta. Il risultato? Spettacolare! 🤩 I vostri programmi per questa domenica? Le vostre colazioni? 🤗👇🏻
I had such an affirming talk with @emilycapellims
last week about how the diet mentality sneaks back in whenever we use any arbitrary, external measures to determine our self worth (or the worth we ascribe to others). I’m so grateful for the support of peers who share the belief that we are all in this together (this being the dismantling of diet culture, white supremacy and the patriarchy). We are all more than numbers—any of them.
with banana 🍌 and blackberries. In the summer up at our horses, we always used to pick the blackberries from the tree with my family and we would plan on cooking them in a blackberry pie 🥧 but we’d end up eating them whilst we were on our way home so then there would be none left. But anyway they were still really good and it was something that I couldn’t do last year but I know I will be able to do it this year😆💗
Yay.. A happy merriage is a new beginning of life , a new starting point of happiness and usefulness
So guys, menurut kamu apa sih kebahagiaan yang udah kamu capai tahun kemarin atau bakal kamu targetkan buat di tahun 2019 ini? .
bisa share di comment yuk 🤗 .

i’m almost 16
in the body of an 11 year old
with the pains of a 70 year old
it makes me so angry
that anorexia was able to trick me
into ruining the very instrument
the universe gave me to look after🐼
you don’t have to earn food
you need it.
everyday. all day.
no matter what happened yesterday,
the day before,
or what your plans are tomorrow.
you need food.
that’s the only way we can look after our gift from the universe !1!1!
F O O D ! .

Dusty Friday’s! ☀️🍂🍁🍃 It’s sad to see the tonnes of dust in the air due to how dry it is here. There was a shower of rain last night and within 12 hours the reality of the dryness sets back on 😓
