The recovery burnout is real…

In case you haven’t noticed, I haven’t published a blog post in about a month. It’s not because I forgot or because I was too busy or because I had writers block- it’s because I’ve been experiencing some major recovery burnout.

Being in recovery from an eating disorder or disordered eating, in my opinion, is a full-time job- and as with any full-time job, or any job for that matter, you may get burnt out.Read More

don’t just take it from me…

If you’ve read my blog before, then you know I talk a whole lot about Intuitive Eating (IE) and Health at Every Size (HAES). Maybe you’ve been introduced to these topics before and put them into practice every day, maybe you’ve only read about them on my blog, or maybe you’ve never heard of them before and just happened to find this post! Wherever you’re at, welcome- I’m so glad you found this blog post (it’s a good one 🙂 )! Read More

I didn’t know I had an eating disorder…

Have you guys ever seen the show, “I didn’t know I was pregnant” on TLC? Have you ever wondered “how in the heck did that person not know they were pregnant until the baby popped out?!” I have too. But as strange of a comparison as it is to make, that’s how I felt about my eating disorder (ED).

I don’t know about you, but when I hear the words “new years resolutions”, I start to panic. That’s mainly because for the majority of my life, new years resolutions included eating less and working out more. If that doesn’t induce panic in someone then I don’t know what will. Read More

my playlist for life

Music is a powerful thing. It’s gotten me through some of the best and worst times of my life. Whether I’ve felt happy, sad, joyful confused, excited, angry, or anything in between, music has been there for me- making the most profound impact on my life. To me, it doesn’t matter what genre of music it is- I love it all (except screamo…my ears can’t take that haha). I love the feeling I get when I connect to a song. Read More
