WIAW: First week in college

  Hey guys! I am going to show you all a day in the life at college. Last week was very laid back and we had a lot of meetings to attend.   I started off my morning with an english muffin with cream cheese, microwaved egg whites and raspberries and banana. I sat in the lounge…

College is… different

College is different. It was a scary transition because I am so used to making my own meals, not being on the go all the time and had time to myself. College is the complete opposite and let me tell you, I am not used to staying up late. I literally have big bags under…

Gaining More Than Pounds

Recovering is not just about the weight. Recovering is fighting for your actual life back as well. Fighting a nasty disorder brings out a whole new person. You might not be the same person you were before but it’s because you have gone through a life changing situation. Nothing in the world wrong with that-…

Getting Settled In College!

Wow. College is so unbelievably different than what I was used to at home. To sum it up: a LOT more walking, never having alone time, and most meals are out. Not going to lie, the first day I felt like I was going to pass out from exhaustion. Moving was stressful and so hot….

The Big 18

Get Angry

It’s time to get angry. Get angry at your eating disorder. Stop yelling at your parents and loved ones for trying to help. Stop blaming and feeling sorry for yourself. Stop isolating because you think you have no friends. Stop acting like there’s no way out. Get angry. Fight the evil disorder that is taking…

Banana Mugcake 

When it comes to baking, you need a really moist ingredient such as pumpkin, yogurt, applesauce for it to come out nice and moist. I hate trying out recipes and it coming out so dry you can’t swallow. Well, I haven’t used banana as much which is why I gave it a shot. This recipe…

Extreme Hunger

When I first started refeeding my body with an adequate amount of nutrition (3000 calories a day), I felt extremely full a lot of the time. However, there were times whether between meals or right before a meal that I felt STARVING. It was a feeling of if I didn’t get food soon I would…

WIAW: Home Alone

My parents had left for a long weekend to a wedding and I was in charge of keeping the house in shape. I spent a lot of time with my doggy (Bailey) and 2 cats. They are very entertaining! I’m going to share with you all what I ate the first day on my own….
