Working on my relationship with food.... it’s not a good one... it’s been a bad week... I’m in pain from hurting my back and being on my period and I’m tired from getting my IV and I’m done with being cold from winter... basically I’m being a sook and realizing how much power my emotions, especially the negative ones, have on my food intake...it was an eye opening weekend that I’m learning to process... #healthyandhappy#maintenancemode#learningnewhabits#foodisfuel
Picked this book up today. Swipe for the highlighted lines on the back that spoke to me. I have real trouble with accepting positive attributes about myself, admitting that any exist at all is challenging, I have a tendency to self sabotage, and I have a very strongly held belief that if I get too happy everyone I love will die. 🙃 Trying to undo my awful self esteem, shut down my self saboteur, and find a way to be happy without being terrified. 💪 It's a big process and I know it'll take tons of practice and rewiring my thoughts but I'm determined to see the good in myself and develop some self love so I can feel better and teach my kids better too.

The Golden Arches. Some days you have two choices... stay on keto and eat somewhere you would rather not, or, break your keto journey and choose somewhere else. So, here I am and still keto despite my perceived lack of choice....
We always have a choice about everything. We may not want to acknowledge those choices but they exist. We make so many of them every single day we forget that they are choices....
.... for most of my adult life I chose to be overweight. I chose what I put in my mouth and whilst I have B.E.D, to binge was still a choice. I’m making new choices but at the moment they’re still being made on a day to day basis and sometimes they’re still really hard. #goldenarches#choices#bitbybit#juggling#ketotransformation#onemealatatime#learningnewhabits#ittakestime#justkeeptrying#ireallyneedsomesleep
Recap of week 1. It went ok, I paid attention to myself when I wanted a craving and why I thought I needed certain foods. Somedays it was harder to stay on tract but other days it was simple. Heres to hoping week 2 continues to show promise🧡🧡
Weigh-in was 307.2 difference of 5.6 pounds. #freedomfromfood#foodaddiction#learningnewhabits#eattolive#fuelyourbody
[JAN 2] Today I started the day with an awesome workout with my sweet @natural.power.ocr. After that I was finally able to submit my application for permanent residency in Denmark!😄It was a great feeling and definitely the best way to start this 2019!🌻💃
Now part of my new night routine is to read at least 15 minutes of something (usually it is one of the many books I have bought with the intention of reading and never found the time to).I came to the conclusion that it is a matter of what priorities you give yourself when you want to accomplish somehting.And reading at least 15 minutes before sleeping is a new habit that I am attempting to learn. I choose to prioritise that over let's say watching 3 episodes of house of cards on Netflix ehehe.Let's see how it goes.😄Tonight the book is actually written from someone very special for me.💕A truly good person with a big and humble soul💕 and #learningnewhabits#smallgoals#stepbystep#progressisprogress #2019 #personaldevelopment
When your diet needs changing due to meat intolerance due to new meds you go with the flow to your next true love ... veggies 😍😍😍😍 I will try and be a good little vegetarian until my body is happy about meat again
Imagine what you could accomplish if you just started?
Imagine what it would feel like?
A little bit of excitement and those tingly butterflies?
A little bit of fear?
A little bit of anxiety?
Now imagine what it would feel like when you accomplish that goal? You have those same feelings right?
The only thing stopping you is the choice!
You just have to START, start big, start small JUST START!
That's all that's required of you, the rest is in the follow through.
START before your brain has a chance to stop you, in the famous words of @melrobbinslive 22.214.171.124.1..GO
In the spirit of starting new, starting fresh and JUST STARTING I'm inviting YOU to start on your own health and your own fitness, the only requirement is the investment in yourself and STARTING.
We will teach you how to start and stay consistent so that you keep these habits FOR LIFE. No more yo-yoing no more gaining and losing the same 5, 10, 15 or 20 lbs on repeat!. This is where that habit STOPS and this new habit STARTS
message me for info, if you have questions or just are curious.
Red potato, onion, red bell, random spicy peppers and tomatoes from my BFFs garden (@marianne_eberhardt ) fresh spinach, fresh basil, smoked turkey kielbasa, 1 egg and 1/4 avacodo. Yes I have been trying to eliminate eggs from my diet (It feeds the EBV see @medicalmedium) and have eliminated them approx. 90% of my diet!!! Great breakfast! And I'll have my wild blueberry and banana smoothie for snack.

Here I am. Four years old. Smiling because im being told to, but behind that im not happy. I don’t think I’ve never known true happy. I’ve been diagnosed with depression my entire life some days are so difficult I think “when will it end? When will I be normal? When will I be okay?” And I don’t know what the answer to that is. I finally took some major steps, taking a break from a job that I love more than anything to go through a therapy program that will end this week... and I feel more or less the same. Each night I take seven medications, starting next week I go back to work for only three days a week and the rest of the week I attend more therapy... when does it end? Can some people be fixed? I get scared. I get scared that maybe I’m that one person who has too many issues. I know so many people who have had traumas in their lives and have bounced back just fine.. why can’t I? Im doing everything im supposed to be doing, and im not giving up. But im tired, im sad, im hurting. Self soothing is hard, retraining my brain is hard, learning new habits is hard, fighting this battle is hard. I’m doing it.. im trying.. but it’s hard. I’m sharing my journey so maybe you guys can understand why im a little more sad in person than most people, why im a little more sensitive, why I take things a little more personally. That doesn’t mean you should treat me differently. This is my fault, not yours. Im working on it... it’s just hard. Healing is so hard. I’ll keep trying. Im not asking for pity or advice. Thank you to those who have reached out during this difficult time.
Recovery from depression has been extremely difficult due to this horrible lack of sleep. I’m not asking for advice or pity. I’m just letting you all know, if you’re noticing yourself feeling less than usual.. it’s probably lack of sleep. For us who suffer mental health it can be the difference between a panic attack and a great day. Im learning to practice self care more and more, wont you practice with me? Tonight I pray I sleep. I don’t think it’s Freddy making it impossible... I’m pretty sure it’s my depression. So tonight I will try to clear my mind. I will take my medicine and I will clear my mind.. it may work, it probably won’t but I will try to start this new habit of completely clearing the toxic thoughts from my brain so I can sleep. It’s all about teaching my brain new habits, which takes time. All I can do is try. Again, I’m not asking for advice, help, or pity. I have my doctors I have my medication. I’m just sharing my journey. I hope I’m beautiful and bad in my dreams..but I’ll settle being able to cook decent French toast.

We did some deep cleaning in our home yesterday. All the Tupperware came out of the drawers. All the pots, pans, and dishes came out of the cluttered mess of cabinets. We sorted. Discarded what we never used. Put the really nice stuff you use once a year in a different room. We purged. And it feels good!!
It made me think about my counseling sessions. I’m purging my insides. Cleaning up the mess that no one can see. And I won’t look any different on the outside...
But I feel good that I’m not hiding all my mess. That I’m walking through it. Learning new skills. Figuring out who I am not, so I can discover who I am by process of elimination. ⠀⠀
#plasticfreejuly plastic hit list. So I poked around my kitchen cupboards and fridge and realised I'm doing alright at avoiding plastic...but there's still a way to go. .
Here's what I found in plastic:
Pasta, flour, noodles, dried fruit, nuts, hemp seeds, salt, turmeric powder, coconut sugar, rice cakes, spirulina powder, muesli, frozen berries, cheese, vegan cheese, spices, pet mince, chips, biscuits, muesli bars, ice creams (the last 4 being the junk food I let my son have). Chicken grain and dry dog food come in bulk plastic bags and dog poo bags are plastic. .
Every day this month I will post something that I have replaced with a plastic free alternative.
Looking at the list, most things should be easy to source plastic free - just by shopping at the bulk food store or growing my own or cooking/baking/dehydrating.
Some items I can't think of an alternative for so will be asking for suggestions!
Let me know if u r trying to reduce your use of plastic and your top tips. Let's make the world a better place - protect the environment and the animals that live on it!
DAY 1: Starting with something easy - replace flour bought in plastic with flour from the bulk food store. .
I went to the bulk food store yesterday and can buy most things on my list there. YAY! The challenge really will be to either find substitutes for the other items or decide whether to stop having them if I can only get them in plastic. Image 1: participating in 2018 plastic free July .
