Eating disorder and diet change: is that possible or is it a sign of relapse or just your ED speaking? 🍍
This topic has come up now more than ever. People have noticed how I've change my diet completely and assume that due to my long and severe anorexia history, I'm in relapse when it's the opposite 🍍
We're too drawn by the idea that healthy eating and ED don't quite match. That it's always ED driven. Whereas eating unhealthy food means that one isn't in relapse, is okay. I fully understand where this comes from, it's the "norm" that unhealthy food is fearfood for an ED patient while healthy food is safefood.
But there's something we forget: individuality.
We're trying to break the stigma and spread the awareness of this disorder that we don't think how limiting this thought is 🍍
I thought that eating whatever I wanted was unrestrictive eating simply because I could eat it. I did ate fruits & veggies but because of my ED history, I didn't dare to eat more of them because that might be my ED speaking. I'd basically excluded a whole world of foods just because I've got ED history and those foods might trigger a relapse 🍍
Then life threw me a curveball and I decided to start healing. I changed my whole diet from unrestrictive to plant based. People started to question my decision: am I relapsing? I must be relapsing because of what I'm eating. People pathologised my reactions 🍍
People with ED will always have ED. They are always in risk of relapse. Once an anorexic, always an anorexic. Don't cut out this and that from your diet because it can be a trigger.
Sounds familiar? 🍍
I don't think so anymore.
I don't believe that change of diet triggers anything. If it does, then relapse has already happened in your mind. You just weren't aware of it 🍍
Back to my original question: can you change your diet if you've got an ED history?
I'd say yes. It does require painful honesty, so painful that you rather avoid it.
Why are you doing it?
What's your motivation? 🍍
Change of diet or fluctuation of weight doesn't automatically mean a relapse. We should stop pathologising everything that once was disorted.

You know those people who are like “oh I feel so much better when I put on an outfit and do my make up when working from home!!” I am not one of those people. Don’t be surprised if I never wear jeans to work again.
Mich jemanden zu offenbaren fiel mir schwer, zu groß war die Angst als Versager dazustehen. Das führte dazu, dass meine Schuld und Schamgefühle anstiegen. Man fühlt sich unnormal und innerlich wirkt die Isolation wie eine Selbstbestrafung. Ich hab mein Leben nicht im Griff, wie ich es haben sollte, deshalb bin ich schlecht. Ich möchte euch ermutigen herauszugehen mit diesen Problemen. Nicht allein versuchen, sich durchzubeißen und gefangen im Teufelskreis der ES zu sein. Höre auf deinen äußeren Schein aufrechtzuerhalten. Du wirst schnell merken, dass alles aussprechbar ist, ohne das die Welt zusammenbricht. Wenn du Hilfe in Anspruch nehmen möchtest, melde dich gern bei mir

Okay let’s chat about stress for a moment!☝️
I can think back to when I was doing my psychology degree and usually I’d be working anywhere from 1-3 part time jobs. (Definitely not the smartest choice)🤦♀️
As finals would roll around I’d always get these red swollen bumps all over my fingers and knuckles.....I called them my stress bumps. (This was also when I was in recovery)
I now have learned to take my stress levels quite serious because guys, stress causes serious dis-ease in the body.
Whether your stress is from school, work, recovery, the Corina virus, or everything combined, I urge you to start taking your stress level seriously and taking the steps you need to find some relief! There’s so many things you can do!
One thing I ALWAYS have on hand for my stress (and I wish I’d have had it back during University) is Stress Away essential oil!💧
Stress away is this heavenly blend of copaiba, lavender, cedarwood, ocotea, and lime and it can double as a perfume! (Bonus 😍)! You definitely should give it a try if your experiencing a lot of stress these days!
I’d love to know, what’s your go to stress relieving hack?👇

Today just one meal. Potatoes, tofu and beans with mashed tomatoes.
And a few sips of apple juice before sleep.

potato rosti, caramelised onions, spiced borlotti beans, avo, garlicky spinach and cucumber mm!!! actually rly proud of how good this tastes hahaha. also ft my happy socks 🌻
3 giant pizza slices and two cake pops later I’m at work felt fine at first but definitely feeling a little overwhelmed right now. But I’m telling myself it’s fine because I have to eat I’m doing the right thing and yes my belly is puffing out but that’s okay it’s just a belly and I’m gonna love this damn belly no matter what it looks like. So I’m gonna put my happy face on and keep going on with my day. It’s okay to feel down at moments that’s normal as long as I don’t act and use old behaviors it’s fine to feel like this. We are allowed to feel sad, upset, frustrated, angry, but I have to do the right thing which is eat and hold my food down and take care of my body this mood will pass and I know it will all be worth it in the end l #selflove #lovethebelly #itsokaytonotbeokay #edrecoverywarrior #feelinganxious #bulimiarecovery #fucktheed #igotthis

Oggi è una giornata speciale, io e @cercando_un_equilibrio abbiamo fatto la #mifidochallenge
È stato molto bello e devo dire che questa iniziativa creata da @laragazzamaxibonofficial e @vera_pischedda è davvero bella e geniale.
Questa Challenge mi ha aiutata, per un giorno non mi son preoccupata e scervellata per cercare e capire cosa mangiare. Sono stata più tranquilla e devo dire che è una bella cosa. Perciò vi invito tutte a farlo❤
D'altronde oggi non è stata una giornata molto interessante, in mattinata ho studiato ed ho avuto la videolezione si inglese che è durata quasi due ore. Un suicidio in pratico.
Mi piace l'inglese ma la mia prof parla in continuazione, non smette di parlare neanche con una bomba. E tra l'altro parla di cose stupide, magari parlasse di inglese davvero.
Dopodiché ho studiato ed ho studiato anche sopo pranzo.
Poi mi son sciolta le treccine e mi piacciono abbastanza, sembrano frisè e poi è un buon modo per non piastrarli sempre.
Per il resto non ho fatto nient'altro, ho guardato un pò di tik tok e ho provato a farne uno, ma niente da fare, sono impedita.
Oggi aspettavo con molta ansia il pacco di prozis, ma ancora non è arrivato e questa cosa mi rattrista un pò. Ho chiamato l'esistenza e dopo miliardi di volte che li chiamavo mi hanno risposto e mi hanno detto che il pacco sarà rintracciabile da stasera e poi si vedrà quando arriverà. Spero il più presto, perché non vedo l'ora di provare le cose che ho preso.
Ho avuto un pò di pensieri, ma ho cercato di tenermi impegnata per non dargli retta.
Adesso termino la mia cenetta e guardo qualcosa su netflix
Buon appetito a tutti
Hi guys! I thought in a bid to get up talking I would let you know a little about me and you can do the same in the comments below!
🌼 my name is Tali, I'm 22, Deaf, disabled and DELIGHTFUL!
🌼 I have this new-found love of cooking (I used to like it but went off it for a while when my OCD was really bad, now I'm back at it!!!) and having turned flexibly-plant-based I thought I might post some of these lazy recipes on here!
🌼 I have battled various eating disorders since I was quite young but am learning to not just eat because I have to but to ENJOY making food again!
🌼 I have ehlers-danlos syndrome type iii, functional neurological disorder, tourette's syndrome and NEAD (among others 🙃)... my body is a bit of a pain in the ass but gotta love it as it's the only one I've got/will ever have!
🌼 I am vegetarian all the time but try to eat mostly vegan, but allow myself something if I want it and havent found an alternative because in life- we must break the rules sometimes! Hence: fexgan/flexitarian!
So heres what I'd love....
🌼drop your name and a bit about you (even if we already know each other)
🌼drop your all-time favourite food (no judgements here!)
🌼@ your favourite account(s) on here.... from your best friend to anyone random!
🌼 say hi to someone else who has commented (if anyone actually does eeeeek) before you!
Just wanna feel connected to humans again tbh!

••WHAT YOU DO HAVE NOW••
Today, when I’m feeling the true effects of isolation, I try to notice, pause and rephrase myself:
𝐓𝐨𝐝𝐚𝐲, 𝐈 𝐣𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐟𝐞𝐞𝐥 𝐬𝐨 𝐛𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐝 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐟𝐮𝐥, 𝐛𝐞𝐜𝐚𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐈 𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐝𝐚𝐲𝐬 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐈 𝐩𝐫𝐚𝐲𝐞𝐝 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 𝐈 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐧𝐨𝐰
I may not have the freedom of travel, the same level of income or the exciting plans lined up that I did a few months ago. But I do have a wonderful home that we worked hard on at the end of last year that is now such a warm and welcome nest to spend (a lot of ☺️) time in, a pregnancy I prayed so hard for and more time together with Matt than we have in months. There are so many readily available negatives that we could all focus on right now. Let’s interrupt that pattern this evening by remembering 3 things we hoped for just a few months ago that we DO have in this - admittedly unusual - moment xxx
**picture taken those few months ago in Ibiza 🌞**

I watched Miss Americana today which prompted me to write about my own struggle with bulimia. This is for a 16-year-old who didn't know any better. .

Manche haben vielleicht Angst, einen Jungen anzusprechen; Vorträge zu halten; etwas in der Klasse vorzulesen; nicht genug zu sein; zu dick/dünn zu sein; zu kleine/große Busen/Po zu haben... usw. 🗯
Und das alles hängt mit deinem Selbstwertgefühl zusammen. Wenn du an dich glaubst, kannst du auf einmal viel mehr machen als normalerweise🌟
Stärke dein Selbstwertgefühl. Mache Übungen dazu und informiere dich darüber🖥
Ein Beispiel, was bei mir geholfen hat: Schreibe positive Sätze auf Post-its und verteile sie bei dir zu Hause, oder stelle Wecker mit positiven Sätzen. (z.B.: „Du bist liebenswert!“, „Dein Outfit sieht heute gut aus!“ oder „Du schaffst das!“)♥️ 💭Wie stärkst du dein Selbstwert?

HOME. MADE. GNOCCHI. OMG. i had gnocchi for the first time around a month ago and i’ve been obsessed ever since! this was my first time every trying to make it by myself! it wasn’t the most amazing thing i’ve had LOL i didn’t cook the potato long enough so i would most definitely make sure to cook it closer to half an hour than the 15 min recommended by the recipe but u live and learn! the recipe was just -1 potato, boiled, peeled, and mashed
-2 cups flour
just boil and mash the potato, then mix them all together. i didn’t do anything fancy a making it lol i just rolled it into balls, then boil for 3-5 min! i put vodka sauce on too😋
Just in case you haven’t done any of these today 🦋✨💗
Sending you love today 🙏🏻
John 8:26 says “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” Yet unhealthy habits, eating disorders, discontent with our bodies, and health struggles can make us feel enslaved. If the Bible says we are free, why don’t we feel free?
Sometimes we forfeit that freedom.
Sometimes we get comfortable living with our pain.
Sometimes we choose the safety of what is familiar, no matter how painful, over the unknown of change.
Sometimes we rely on our own strength to fight our battles rather than relying on God.
Sometimes we settle for a lifestyle of suffering instead of reminding ourselves of who our God is.
I want to remind you that freedom is yours.
Freedom from diets and food rules.
Freedom from trying to be perfect.
Freedom from letting your health struggles rob you of joy and peace.
Freedom from unhealthy habits that aren’t serving you.
Yes, even in the middle of our struggles, we have freedom.
And you can choose to approach food, exercise and your body from this place of freedom.
Jesus set us free, but it is up to us to choose to live out that freedom.
It’s time to walk it out, talk it out and live it out.
Freedom is yours.
*How does the truth of your freedom change the way you approach your health struggles?
God has given me freedom and I choose to live in that freedom, relying on God’s grace and strength every step of the way. I am free indeed.

I'm still not sure where exactly I stand w recovery. I did make myself some positives rules (I'm not so sure if they are triggering tho, so I'm not mentioning them)
I'm trying to reduce my exercise finally. It's so hard since now I'm trying to eat 200 kcal more than what I burn through exercise 😶
The three food pics are the dinner I made for mum and me (Ramen, vegan burger and nice cream)
I love cooking/baking way too much but my mum likes that she can relax since I take care of meals. There are still so many recipes I wanna try lol
For the last part, some positivity. My cat that, like always looks a bit stupid but whatevs I still love my boy. And a selfie because wow I finally didn't feel all too ugly omg 💕💕
Hope you all keep fighting, be strong 💕💕

-tired of online classes that never seem to end🥱
-under 👁 circles deeper than my soul
-what is even makeup anymore?
-any clothes besides pijamas? We don’t know them🤫
-sleep deprived (a MUST😴)
-ohh and hungryy ALL DAY🍕
It’s been quite a while since my last post, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I have had a great year. Of course there were trials, but everyday I am doing better to focus on the good, to see the positive in everything. I’ve learned a lot about myself this past year. I’ve made friends, lost friends and reconnected with others. Through struggles, I’ve become more confident in who I am as a person. It’s not perfect, but seeing progress is always something to be proud of, no matter how small. Through this time of quarantine, use it for self improvement. Use it to focus on forming healthy habits, while we are less distracted by our normal lives. 💛
Sick during recovery
For the past three weeks I've been dealing with a sickness. Not quite sure what it is, but I know it isnt covid-19. I thought maybe writing about my struggles with this may help some of you feel less alone in this :)
The first few days I had almost no appetite, which was scary. Trying to make sure you're eating enough isnt the easiest when you cant tell if you're hungry.
I COULDNT TASTE FOOD
Which was probably the worst part about all this. Craving food and not getting the satisfaction of how they taste was awful.
Despite all this, I'm taking an antibiotic and it's getting a lot better! I can taste food better now and my appetite has returned :)
There's going to be a lot of ups and downs in recovery. Some times will be much harder than others. You may even consider quitting and giving in to your eating disorder. But it gets better. You will always make it out of the hard time. You need to go through rough things in order to appreciate the good ones ♡

Good morning friends!☀️ ⠀
Here’s a post to remind yourself of the basics. Sometimes I forget these things, so here’s a post to not only remind YOU of these things but ME TOO! ⠀
🌸TAKE YOUR MEDS! I set alarms on my phone which helps a lot! I also use a pill holder so I already have them put into the right days and times and that way if I look at it, I can know right away if I have taken them or not and I dint need to stress! Taking your meds is so! important! Without them our brain can go wack and back to old thoughts and moods only worse because it would be withdrawal. So take your meds!!!! ⠀
🌸BE KIND TO YOURSELF! Simple, but difficult. Show compassion to yourself; if you wake up later than you wanted, don’t beat yourself up. If you’re having a rough day, don’t. beat. yourself. up! It’s okay to struggle; let it go. ⠀
🌸DRINK WATER! Water is just as important as food guys!!! WATER IS FUEL TOO!!!! ⠀
🌸LISTEN TO YOUR BODY! If you’re tired, rest. If you’re hungry, validate that and have your snack even if it’s later than usual or earlier than usual! Don’t push off what your body is trying to say to you. It’s important to listen to your body and what it wants and needs. ⠀
🌸SHOWER, BRUSH YOUR TEETH, ETC! This might seem silly, but really!! Sometimes when we are in a depressive state, all we want to do is lay in bed and sleep. To be alone. To not get up. But it’s so so soooo important to still take care of yourself even if you feel like it will be too hard or take too much energy. Sometimes even just doing those things will HELP LIFT YOU UP!!so ya, get up and do the things! ⠀
🌸GET UP AND MOOOOOVE! This can be tricky. Especially if we have struggled with compulsive working out or what not. But what I mean is just using movement as a way to be connected to others and be at peace and love with your body! Also, a little movement can go such a long way, and make you feel so much better!! Yoga, a walk, swinging (yes, that’s movement!!) being in the backyard with your siblings, dancing in your room to your favorite songs!! Yes!!! ⠀
🌸LASTLY: EAT! THE! FOOD!!! Following a meal plan is so so hard. But fuel. Food is fuel. We can do this!!!
I’m a VERY emotional person. It’s hard for me to stop little things from completely taking over. And usually, in those moments, I have really heightened senses, so anything (whether that’s the scent of candles, or the texture of fabrics, whatever) can be overwhelming. That’s why things like taking a bubble bath or listening to music can feel impossible.
For me, self care looks different. It can be anything from bringing out the inner mom in me (get a snack, speak calmly, if i’m wearing “normal” clothes-change into comfy stuff), or being a little more tough-love-y (setting small but realistic goals, pushing myself), or whatever works in the moment.
If meditation and baths work for you, that’s great!! My point is, find what works for you, and what allows you to look after yourself best:)
Will you be standing on your doorstep tonight and participating again in the heartwarming Clap for Carers?
There’s no denying that the men and women in our healthcare system, and throughout other essential and frontline services are doing an amazing and praiseworthy job in such exceptional circumstances.
But who knew that this tidal wave of respect and appreciation for such individuals could even become a motivation to recover from an eating disorder.
Has the pandemic caused an unprecedented new thought process for you in terms of your eating disorder and your recovery?

Today's snack is a fruit salad chopped by me 🙋🏽♀️. For me to be eating fruit is a massive achievement for me. ⠀⠀⠀
Currently with everything that is going on with the coronavirus it is causing some anxiety. Before, if I was ever anxious I would feed my worries by comfort eating. I would end up binge eating on any snack from multi packs chocolate, crisps, doughnuts to massive carb loaded bowls of pasta.⠀⠀⠀
Its a massive achievement for me to not be using food as a source of comfort during this time. Instead, I've been doing calm things such as loom knitting, baking, colouring, meditation and walking 🧘🏾♀️⠀⠀⠀
A massive thanks goes to: ⠀⠀⠀
@dragonfitnesspt Genuinely without his help I would probably have turned to food and would currently have been stuck in a cycle of binge eating.⠀⠀
To whoever invented loom knitting 🙌🏽😂- Although I know how to knit, loom knitting is so much more easier and less stressful than regular knitting 🧶⠀⠀
@beatedsupport For posting such helpful tips and for being there when I need you.⠀⠀

Soon I have an online test so I might have lunch either sooner or later! I made a shepherds pie for the first time 😯
Okay, let’s take a small reality check.
How is everybody dealing with the Stay-At-Home orders? I have to say that this situation has been shaking my balance quite a bit. I’ve been eating a lot of ice cream and Nutella while watching super cool tv shows on Netflix like “The Sinner”, “The Staircase” and “Our Planet” as a way to console myself. I’ve been feeling stuck, exhausted and really anxious about my family and friends in total lockdown back in Italy. I haven’t been feeling really inspired to communicate or create any new music until a few days ago - thank God now we are back on track and we are recording this new super cool song which I am all excited about. Another thing that has kept me in touch with myself is yoga. Any time I’ve felt particularly stressed I embraced the mat and connected to my body. We all have a few things we need to go to when we don’t feel at ease. And it’s totally okay and understandable if you are feeling hopeless in stressful times and your body asks for things you’d rather deny yourself. Don’t fight against your needs, appreciate them instead. Let go of all the bullshit and remember that the best way to see through the darkest times is keeping your soul dedicated to the things you love the most. Do that and you’ll always have a solid anchor to keep you grounded through the storm.

Jeudi 2 Avril 2020;
Aujourd'hui au menue nous avons.. .... Suspense.... (Nan en vrai j'en fais tout un plat 😂 mais s'était juste immonde 😆) * champignon à la grecque. (Tout mangé c'était pas mal)
* polenta (elle était dégoûtante sans rire donc 1/4 )
* nuggets de poissons (1 sur les 4)
* fromage blanc saveur vanille (moi qui n'aime pas trop la vanille s'était super bon)
* orange (gardé pour plus tard)
Je fais un stock de fruits dans ma chambre comme ça j'en ai pour le matin parce que sinon ils ne proposent que du pain ou des biscotte..😥 Je suis plutôt fière de mes efforts 💪
Et j'ai décidé de me fixer des petits objectifs sur la semaine à partir de la semaine prochaine. Ça vous intéresse que je les poste ?
Bisous à toutes et tous😚

🤔 Ar kada nors atsisakei vartoti tam tikrus gydytojo paskirtus vaistus vien dėl to, kad „svorio padidėjimas“ yra nurodytas kaip šalutinis vaistų poveikis? 🤔 Ar kada nors džiaugeisi persirgęs peršalimu/gripu/roto/noro virusais vien dėl to, kad sirgdamas numetei kelis kilogramus? 🤔 Ar kada nors pamatęs save nuotraukoje – nuliūdai dėl to kaip tu atrodei? 🤔 Ar kada nors lyginai savo dabartinį kūną su kūnu, turėtu praeityje, ar jauteisi nusivylęs? 🤔 Ar kada nors užsisakei kavinėje patiekalą, kurio visiškai nenorėjai, bet jis buvo „mažiau kaloringas/liekninantis/neriebus“, todėl pasirinkai jį ir valgei „atbulais dantimis“. ...
Reiškia, jūs patyrėte nutukimo/antsvorio baimę, dažnais atvejais obsesinę. Skatinčiau šią baimę atpažinti ir eliminuoti. Viskas, kas tampa paranojiška, yra nesveika. Jūs vienu metu sąmoningai įsivaizduojate, kad siekiate sveikatos, tačiau nesąmoningai kuriate sergančio žmogaus mentalinį pasaulį.
⛔⛔⛔ Mes gyvename kultūroje, kurioje stambūs žmonės yra laikomi netikusiais žmonėmis, daugumai jie atrodo „ėdrūs“, tingūs, nesveiki, neatsakingi. Mes esame linkę lieknumą matyti kaip absoliučią sėkmę, kaip sveikatą, universalų gėrį, lieknas žmogus atrodo atsakingas, sėkmingas, kontroliuojantis savo svorį ir gyvenimą. Tai kasdien išgirstame savo aplinkoje, žiniasklaidoje. Tačiau mes turėtume suklusti ir susimąstyti, ar iš tiesų žmogaus atvaizdas turėtų paveikti kiekvieną iš mūsų, įtakoti mūsų požiūrį į konkretų asmenį, leisti išankstinėms nuostatoms susidaryti įspūdį apie jo gebėjimus ir charakterį dar jam nepravėrus burnos . Ar mes norime gyventi visuomenėje, kurioje žmonės yra diskriminuojami, engiami, pašiepiami vien dėl to, kokios formos yra jų kūnas. Ar jie turi jaustis nelaimingais gyvendami savo gyvenimą, vien dėl to, kad negimė XVII amžiuje, kai jie galėjo būti šlovinami, kai jų kūnus kaip gražiausius kūrinius tapė dailininkas P.P.Rubensas. Būtent tada jų kūnai reiškė vaisingumą, sveikatą, grožį. 🌺
Tai ne žmonių stambūs kūnai yra negražūs, tai mūsų suvokimas yra per siauras. Daugelis mūsų negebame „matyti toliau savo varpinės...“, tačiau esame taip įtikėję, kad pakeisti savo supratimą tampa itin sudėtinga.
I hope everyone is okay. I'm trying to be. Let's try together.
So today I was awake pretty early. I am pretty tired and bored. I don’t know what to do today at all. I’m only in day 12 out of 30, and the days are dragging by. Even after my 30 days off of work I’ll go back and still have to stay home the rest of the time.
Anyways! This morning I posted a new YouTube video on how to cope with #anxiety during #coronavirus . I hope you all check it out! The link to the video is in my bio.
This morning I’m having some coconut yogurt sweetened with stevia with shredded coconut, blueberries, and almonds.
I also brewed some coffee this morning and it’s cooling in the fridge at the moment. -
I’ll be writing some new music today and hopefully find some good song ideas.

I hate Korea
I hate Korea
I hate that I'm Korean like you
I hate you
and I hate this country
and everything that makes up its toxic culture
Leave me alone
Stop bullying me
.. had to leave work early because some girls were endlessly touching my stomach and teasing me that I got fat. Three of them ganged up and were talking about it to me and to everyone else. Then a fourth joined in and I caught a glimpse in the mirror and there is this huge whale with a pregnant belly staring back.
The worst part of it was not the bullying but I couldn't stand the fact that I wasn't smart enough to think of a good retort to shut up those girls that were a decade younger than me. I still don't know what witty saying I could have said to put them in place. That's the hardest part.
b&p all night long and pray to god I don't kill myself in the end

🦋CHANGE YOUR MINDSET--NOT YOUR APPEARANCE🦋 .
In my personal opinion, one of the best ways to create a difficult relationship with food and exercise is to come at it from the intention of strictly and solely wanting to alter your appearance rather than wanting to improve your overall health and wellness. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad thing to have appearance-based goals (ex: more toned legs or a stronger arms), BUT I don’t think it should be your only focus of a health/fitness routine! NOPE.
That said, what I believe can happen when you put too much effort in wanting to only change your body rather than wanting to improve your health is that you place more worth in what your body LOOKS like instead of what it is CAPABLE of. .
So, when our bodies inevitably change and evolve throughout our lives, it can be really hard to maintain a healthy body confidence if you’ve based all your self-worth on what you look like. .
When we exercise more for health rather than appearance, we will be less likely to struggle when our bodies change because we know our bodies are so much more than their appearance! Plus, you will choose exercise and movement you ENJOY and are able to CONSISTENT with rather than doing what you 'should be doing' or 'what everyone else is doing'. .
Now I want to know: What are some ways that you exercise and eat for your health rather than your appearance? 🧡
You deserve kindness too!
Have you ever noticed how a surfboard rides the waves? No matter how big the waves are or how often they come, they can only ride the wave, they can't control of the ocean. If you think of your emotions like waves, you'll realize that you can't ignore them. (Imagine ignoring a 15 foot wave). Instead, ask for help, call someone, start moving, start writing, find a little peace and ride the wave back to shore. ⠀⠀

Self isolation. Social distancing. Spatial distancing. Quarantine. Whatever we are calling it is so so important to ‘flatten the curve’ but has been a massive life change for all of us!
Through all of this, I have never felt more grateful for some of the smaller, more everyday things in life.
💭What has isolation made you feel grateful for? What are you missing most?💭
Sending love to you all!
Diet culture doesn’t stop during a pandemic.
If anything, it ramps up, plays on your fears and tries to make you feel that there’s a right/wrong, good/bad way of eating that will heal you or keep you well.
The most important thing is that you’re eating, eating consistently, eating enough food.
Your eating disorder and diet culture will try to convince you otherwise but don’t buy in!
What’s your favorite food to have right now? Share in the comments or in my stories.

hi friends 👋🏻 just the gentlest reminder for you ❤️
☀️Self distancing with Sage. I’m sorry I haven’t been very active on here. I hope you’re taking care of yourself as best as possible during such unthinkable circumstances. Remember that we are ALL in the same boat right now, and if you’re riding a roller coaster of emotions that is totally normal and expected. Things won’t always be this way. The dizzying feelings will level out. And amongst so much uncertainty, this is making us stronger. What’s something you’ve found helpful during this time?
Let’s talk about how hard it is to open up to someone about being sad or anxious for no reason. Let’s talk about how hard it is to explain to your friends and family that you have this heavy feeling in your chest for no reason. Let’s talk about how hard it is to understand why you’re having a panic attack while just sitting in the comfort of your home, or taking a walk. Let’s talk about how hard it is to understand your own self and how scary it is to feel like the whole world is falling on your shoulders and you have no idea why!
I want us to talk about the things that we’ve been told to not speak off. The things that makes some people uncomfortable to hear about, because they don’t want to understand that your mind can wander without being completely lost. Let us put an end to the stigma of mental health!
Up until now I’ve spoken freely about mental health on here, but I now want to find some special place for it, which is why I want to have one day a week where I talk about mental health, disorders, recovery, inspiration, things we need to read from time to time.
I want you to help me decide which day, so I’m putting two options in the comments, and you heart the one you think is best.

hi friends 👋🏻 just a gentle reminder for you ❤️
“I’m going to gain so much weight during this quarantine”
... how many of you have thought or joked around to something along those same lines?
Let me put things into perspective for you:
There are much worse things than gaining weight right now.
Gaining weight during this time is okay.
Gaining weight period is okay!
If you are fearful of gaining weight, it may be time to stop and address why you are fearful of it.
There are also many who are struggling with eating disorders during this time, or may be in the middle of recovering. I know this probably just made it 10x harder but keep pushing for recovery. From someone who struggled with ED’s in her past - it is SO worth it to recover!
It’s okay for your body to change. I’m no longer lifting heavy weights, so my body is changing. And that is 100% okay.
Send a “thank you” to God for a body that can move and breathe. Don’t compare yourself to what everyone else is doing during this time.
If you feel like working out, great.
If not, relax, rest and lean into it!
Now is not the time to be a jerk to yourself💗
Just did my first Instagram Live!💫 🎉
Baked up some hella tasty cinnamon rolls because ya’ll need some post workout snacks after all the instagram live workouts happenin’ these days!
110 peeps joined throughout! Honestly, way more than I anticipated!🤪
Thanks to anyone who joined! It was so fun! I’ll definitely be doing it again! Excited to interact, be a goofball, make a mess, lick my fingers, get buzzed on @boochcraft and best of all TRY to bake even tho I’m terrible at it, with y’all soon!
The cinnamon rolls I made are from @shelikes.food! And they are SO GOOD! I also make her GF pizza crust recipe often, best one I’ve ever found!
I used these cane sugar alternatives because cane sugar tends to make me feel like pewp, but otherwise followed the recipe!
Soooo, what should I cook next?! 👩🍳😆
PS it has be pointed out to me that my cinnamon rolls are sideways. HAHAHA Didn’t even realize, but this gives a good idea of what type of baking is in store...🤪
QUARENTENA, COMPULSÃO ALIMENTAR E BULIMIA :::
Esses dias falei nos stories que estava bastante preocupada com meu público que sofre de compulsão alimentar e bulimia. Na caixa de perguntas, recebi muitas mensagens sobre como tem sido difícil controlar os episódios de comer compulsivo aliado a ansiedade de se estar preso em casa. Como ex bulímica e compulsiva controlada (compulsão é algo que nunca deixa de existir, é um tipo de adição), venho hoje aqui falar um pouco sobre isso e sugerir formatos de controle de ansiedade que me ajudaram no processo de cura.
Primeiro de tudo: entendo 100% do que estão passando. Ficar em casa com uma oferta de comida na geladeira maior do que a usual pode ser um baita gatilho para compulsão. A “falta do que fazer” e tempos em frente à TV formam um cenário muito propício a comer mais. Além disso, compreendo a dificuldade de uma pessoa bulímica ao estar com a família (que normalmente não sabe dessa condição) dentro da mesma casa por tanto tempo. É estressante demais.
A minha primeira e principal sugestão é: SE OCUPEM. Escolham alguma atividade que seja demorada, que leve seu foco mental para aquilo em vez da comida. Pintura, escrita, estudo, livros, limpeza, tudo isso vai te ocupar um tempo danado. Parece uma dica idiota, mas é uma espécie de meditação ativa. Durante a atividade, seu cérebro foca nela e esquece de outras coisas.
MEDITE. Agora, mais do que nunca, chegou a hora da gente incluir essa prática na nossa rotina. Meditar ajuda no controle da ansiedade, nos traz clareza mental e é fundamental no manejo do stress. Há vários vídeos e aplicativos para meditação guiada. Depois posto aqui.
BEBA ÁGUA! Incluir mais água na sua rotina ajuda ocupar o espaço que você preencheria com o excesso de comida (atenção! Não estou dizendo pra ninguém beber água no lugar das refeições normais. Isso é um recado pra os compulsivos e bulímicos).
DIMINUA AS REDES SOCIAIS. Acho que o Instagram nunca foi tão usado na história. Mas, como já falei antes, é um mega gatilho de ansiedade. Ainda temos fotos de corpos perfeitos e vidas perfeitas, o que nos leva a crer que estamos na merda sozinhos. Obs: tá todo mundo no mesmo barco. (Continua 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻)
