Are You Hungry For Happiness? Follow Me On My New Journey

If you have read my blog from the beginning, you already know that I did something terrifying last year. Something that made me feel so exposed. I literally had to hide my phone because I was fearful of people’s reactions and responses. Little did I know that embracing my fear would open so many doors for me. It introduced me to so many amazing women and lead me down a path of even more healing and hunger for happiness. When was the last time you did something terrifying? Scroll down to the bottom and let me know in the comments! …

2021 Vision

2021 Vision

Hello 2021, and hello everyone! I have been absent for 6+ months. As much as I wanted to be on here blogging, journaling, sharing my thoughts, my work and journey of continuing to heal my relationship with food and my body got in the way of that. I initially started this blog with the intent of sharing my story of my disordered eating and my unhealthy relationship with my body. Opening up about that on this platform busted down so many doors for me this year. The most transformative result of my openness was my realization that my story is …

Surrender to the things that do not serve you.

Surrendering to Our Feelings

I have been absent from blogging for the past week because I have been busy writing blog posts from other people. Which is exciting as I am getting paid to do something I just realized I loved doing. But it is also taking away my energy from my own blog. I decided I needed a break from writing for other people because I am super excited to tell you guys about what I have discovered this past week! Obviously it has to do with Surrendering to Our Feelings. If you search on Google, Surrendering seems to associate with negativity: “cease …

My Journey

My Journey to ending my 10 year battle

I don’t want to wake up in 20 years and wish I had done something when I was “younger”. Nor do I want to wake up in 20 years and still be struggling with food, body image, anxiety, confidence, comparison, shame, guilt, etc. I want to begin working on my journey to ending my 10 year battle, with all of these things. When I first posted on this blog and admitted to the internet world that I had an eating disorder, at that time I thought I was all “better”. That was only 3 months ago! But now, as I …

You are not your thoughts

You Are Not Your Thoughts

“You are not your thoughts.” Out of everything I have been working on internally, with my mindset and self-love, this is been the hardest thing for me to address, “You are not your thoughts.” My inner critic is my most powerful struggle and she can be so harsh. And the most ridicuolous thing is that it is coming from my own self. I am giving my mind permission to think these thoughts about myself. How many of you do the same thing? When was the last time you looked in the mirror and thought to yourself that you are beautiful. …

The Boston Marathon Saved My Life

If you are not up to speed, then I recommend reading part one of my eating disorder story, Eating Disorder? Well that was out of the blue. I left off with saying that I truly believe that the Boston Marathon saved my life. My disordered eating did not develop due to my running habits or from a desire to have less body weight in order to run faster. I did not meet and fall in love with the marathon until well into my eating disorder. Now I do know that eating disorders can be coupled with over exercising. In my …

National Eating Disorder Awareness

Eating Disorder? Well That Was Out of the Blue.

As I sit here and type out this post I am in awe of what I have been through, both physically and mentally. Literally, I am thinking to myself, “Eating Disorder? Well that was out of the blue.” The last week in February is National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. For the past 5 years I have created an Instagram post to talk about my eating disorder and recovery. And for the past 5 years I have erased that content before publishing. Although I felt compelled to share my story, I always had a voice in the back of my head …
