Again? Yep. Rice cakes and avo are just too good to pass up 🤷🏼♀️ Dying to get back to @traderjoes because I’m out of ALL my goods from there. (Most importantly everything but the bagel seasoning 😫) Also been wanting to try out some cauliflower gnocchi and other things but that will have to wait 😕 School starts in exactly one week and I’m so ready and so not ready all at the same time. Good news is I have open 3rd and 4th block on one of my two day schedule for first semester, which means that I will get done with school at 11:20 every other day WAT?! Yeah I’m pretty pumped about that. Hope everyone that has already gone back to school is enjoying their classes and getting back into their routine! LOVE you all 😘😘
Would you believe that of all the things researched in the world of therapy, the client’s belief their therapist can help (i.e. they believe their therapist is a good fit) is nearly always the No. 1 predictor of a successful outcome in therapy?
Read more about what to expect in therapy and how to know if your therapist is a good fit in my current blog post. Link in bio.
Never ever second guess your own worth. For years, I believed that I was broken due to my molestation as a child. I believed that no one could live me. And alcohol and drugs helped numb the pain of me feeling disgusting and used.
When I found recovery, I realized how much I am worth and how much I have to offer. We are all enough! I found a fellowship of people and sought out an amazing therapist who helped me finally deal with the brainwashing that my abuser created.
I am a firm believer in sharing my past because it does not define me. It created me to be stronger and more empathetic for those who have gone through trauma as well. No one is alone, if you ever need help always always reach out! You are enough! #breakthestigma#recoveryworks#recoveryisworthit#recovery#soberaf#sober#soberlife#wedorecover#friendofbillw#aa#soberinbeaverton#morningmeditation

Whether you’re running a marathon or just walking your dog, injury and joint pain can happen at any time, any age. This pack is designed to help you ease aches and pains, naturally. Joint Flex, Apothe-Cherry and Super Xanthin help support your body’s response to inflammation, healthy joint function, soreness and free radical muscle damage. Plus, spray away daily muscle tension with EASE.
I have asthma and used to not be able to run more than a minute without coughing my lungs out. I eventually worked up to 3miles and have stayed at that for years. I signed up for a half marathon months ago, back when my train of thought was that I could prove myself I can do anything I put my mind to...with the added benefit of justifying running and working out a lot to train and the awesome side effect of weight loss. Also the possible excuse of “oh I’m training” to refuse certain foods. I tried to persuade myself it was all for health and challenge purposes (called my team outrun fear) but I now realize just how strong my ED voice still was at the time. Fast forward to today and I’ve been putting off training as much as I can to avoid getting obsessive about moving and losing weight. My clothes actually fit tighter than when I signed up and I’m grateful I took a step back to better separate my voice from the ED voice. Do I really like working out and challenging my body or does my ED want me to do this against my will? For thinness’ sake?
Over the last few weeks it’s clear that I love movement and it has been very freeing to move because I want to and not because I “should” for reason x,y or z. Also choosing yoga and learning kickboxing over daily running or working out at the gym. All about fun, not burning calories. Now I’m exactly enough weeks away that if I run twice a week I can do this half marathon. I thought I would have to run daily for months, but it turns out it’s not necessary and I don’t have to become a runner to do this. My training guidelines are simple: don’t overachieve in training and no treadmill. My goal is just to cross the finish line whether it’s running, walking or even crawling. I will use this opportunity to challenge my ED thoughts throughout my training weeks and I may just choose not to participate if I can’t do this in a healthy way and just cheer on my teammates.

Кто-нибудь смотрит на YouTube такую девушку, как «Always Hungry»?) Ее зовут Ливия, она из Германии, нживет на две страны: США И Германия, так как ее парень из Флориды. Она его часто там навещает, а иногда он конец прилетает. Она снимает разные видео в стиле «cheat day». Кстати, ее парень тоже имеет свой канал на ютубе - Nathan Figueroa. Он что-то типа competitive eater - снимать всякие фуд челоенджи, cheat days и просто видео про еду. Осень харизматичный и веселый парень)
Так вот, о Ливии. Она снимает на английском языке, не переживайте) видео выходят раз в неделю, так как она делает эти «чит дэйз» раз в неделю. В прошлом у неё была анорексия, которая длилась где-то 7 лет. И вот только пару лет назад после знакомства с парнем она начала процесс рекавери: начала нормально питаться, адекватно заниматься спортом и открывать для себя вкусняшки. Так вот, делает она эти «чит дейз» раз в неделю - в субботу. В этот день она позволяет себе все, что угодно и в неограниченном количестве. Обычно свой день она начинает с пончиков, ибо это ее страсть. В остальные дни она ест одни овощи. И она придерживается intermittent fasting ( когда ты ешь 1 раз в день большую порцию еды). И ест она обычно одет салаты. И вот в эти субботы она обычно очень часто переедает. И как-то в одном видео она сказала, что она восстановилась после анорексии и что она позволяет себе вот такой «ем, что хочу» день раз в неделю. И что ничего с ее телом не происходит, то есть она не толстеет и так далее. И это, по её мнению, нормальные отношения с едой после анорексии и настоящее рекавери.
Я так не считаю. По сути, она ограничивает себя всю неделю, чтобы обожраться в один день, а потом Асю следующую неделю это о рабатыватб в зале и урезать себя в питании. Разве это рекавери? Разве это здоровые отношения с едой? По мне, рекавери - это, когда ты ешь, что хочешь, когда хочешь и не отрабатываешь потом в зале как резаный, не урезаешь себя в питании, тем более на целую неделю одними салатами раз в день. Это бред. Она сама себя обманывает, но упорно доказывает, что это нормально и что ее это устраивает. Продолжение в комментариях⬇️⬇️⬇️

I don't know how many people notice my scar. When I see pictures of myself, it's a blaring mark on my skin. I hate it. I've hated it for a long time, but it reminds me of my strength.
When I was 15, I was in a severe car accident. The details are horrendous and I don't think I'm ready to share them so publicly just yet.
Regardless, I was intubated to help me breathe, and as a result my trachea was scarred. I had to have a surgery to have the scar tissue removed.
I'm glad I survived the accident. It easily could have gone a different way, but I lost my signing voice.
Through elementary and middle school, I was in chorus. I was a decent singer, I think. I still love to sing and since I posted that video of me singing the other day, I've been thinking about sharing this.
With a lot of singing in the car and shower since the surgery I sound better than I did, but I barely have a fraction of the range I had before. I'll keep doing it though because it brings me joy and I know if I practice I'll keep getting better.
If you relate in some way let me know.
Anyway, thanks for reading if you did actually read through. It's way more real and personal than what I usually post about, but I felt the need to share.
Brunch at @roosleiden and it was delishhh! Ik had 2 broodjes met avocado smash (eentje met aardbeien/feta/munt, eentje met more avo en een eitje) en een klein soepje. Was een beetje té enthousiast en mijn ogen waren groter dan mijn maag😂 dus niet helemaaaal op maar het was wel heel lekker! En heerlijk bijgekletst met mijn schoolvriendinnetjes en t was zo zo leuk ze weer te hebben gezien! Sad thing: zij beginnen over 1,5 week weer met school (loop nu al een jaar achter) en ik begin over 1,5 week weer met een nieuwe intake en dus wellicht een nieuw traject😩 SAD.
I actually went to bed at 12am and slept for like 12 hours which is v unlike me! guess I really must've been #tired. it's almost like I can hardly remember yd. I felt so sore and my entire body was SO SO stiff when I woke up, stretching took me twice as long as usually and I made this ⬆ first before I eventually decided to get a workout in and stretch some more. I just couldn't bring myself to eat. it seemed so disgusting and unnecessary. having it just now anyway but I'm literally too tired/unmotivated to dig into the food, bring the spoon to my mouth and swallow it. I don't want to taste it and feel the textures in my mouth and I didn't want to feel full again! motivation is rather non-existent today but I vacuumed part of the house and might wash my hair

🧠 When you’re in pain, your body is sending a message through your nerves to your brain. Electrical stimulation, when applied correctly, can effectively block the pain signal, so that your brain never gets the message.
💥 Imagine you pulled a muscle in your lower back. The pain receptors in your back say to your brain, “We’ve got a problem down here,” and you interpret that message as a dull ache. Applying electrical stimulation around the pain receptors essentially generates so much noise that your brain can’t hear what the pain receptors are saying. Since you don’t get the message, you don’t feel the pain.
Thanks @pistinovak for awesome photo from Romanian Throwdown 🔥
In staat van ontspanning voel je pas écht je lijf. En dannnnn.. word je ziek. 😆 Haha potverdorie. Herken je dat? Dat betekent dat je vanalles hebt zitten onderdrukken en spanningen hebt opgebouwd in je lijf, waardoor je weerstand lager wordt. Bij ontspanning komt dan uiteindelijk die griep of verkoudheid naar voren. Lekker liggen rillen, fijn he! Die ontspanning had dus eigenlijk véél eerder gemoeten.. Tijd om te rusten, mediteren bij deze prachtige Zonnebloem en veel te slapen. Recovery time. 🙏🌿 #selfcare
I am happy and proud to say I am 60 Days Sober from Alcohol! I am so happy I gave up the thing that’s done nothing but cause my life trouble the past over 5 years ! Yes I had some good times while I was drinking but I also had some of the worst time too ! I had more bad then good ! I was heading down a road of nothing but trouble if I kept going I’d be dead ,in jail or eventually addicted to drugs ! I never wanted the life I have lived the past few years but I am so ready for the life I’m going to have for the rest of my years ! I see nothing but good coming my way ! My dreams are coming true ! I’m becoming the person I always was inside ! I still have rough days and that’s just life and apart of being sober I understand that now ! It’s not going to always be perfect and I’m okay with that ! I know I am beautiful! I know I am worthy ! I know that I am blessed ! I can finally love myself ! I’m proud because with the help from the man upstairs I did this all on my own ! Yes I wish I went to meetings more but I’m still working on getting out my comfort zone and being around new people! Also hard when you don’t drive to make it to them lol but I made it this far from the handful I been too and most importantly myself and God ! I can’t wait to see what comes these next 30 days ❤️❤️❤️ #sobriety#sober#soberlife#recovery#happiness#tattooed
я хотела умереть.
возможно, это до сих пор не отпускает меня.
первый раз я порезала руку бритвой, которую нашла возле раковины. об этом никто не узнал, забылось.
спустя год, находясь дома одна, что бывает крайне редко, заглянув в сервант, обнаружила целую пачку лезвий и аккуратно стащила одно для себя. "пусть будет, однажды пригодится" - прошептал внутренний голос.
и оно пригодилось. вскоре у меня начались панические атаки и безпочвенные припадки истерик. как-то я пролежала на полу в рыданиях час, что-то говорила в бреду и задыхалась собственными слезами. порезы помогали мне быстро успокоиться. физическая боль заглушала голоса, которые твердили, что я слишком никчемна для этой жизни, никому не нужна и лишь порчу жизнь своим близким. чем чаще это происходило, тем труднее было не обращаться к холодному металлу за "помощью". осенью все кончилось, голоса пропали и причинять боль собственному телу больше не было нужды.
однако на смену одной беде пришла другая...
может быть я продолжу однажды, расскажу подробней, может, может быть..
пишу скорее для себя)

Love is meant to inspire, protect, nurture. Love should lift up and hold close and safeguard. Love should add not subtract. Make whole not split apart. Love should be good and beautiful and simple. Not always easy but always there. You were meant to be loved not left. Don’t settle for less. ❤️ #selflove#love#dontsettle .

The rainy🌧 weather today had me feeling run down this morning, but there’s nothing a little caffeine can’t fix😉.
Today was push day and I incorporated a lil a shoulder work FINALLY! I know it’s only been a little over a week, but I’ve missed training the boulders dearly. My shoulder wasn’t bothering afterwards and I’m praying🙏🏼 it doesn’t start bothering me again.
Also filmed a YouTube video today, so I’ll try to get to get that up ASAP. It’s one that has been highly requested so stay tuned😏.
Anyway, dats all I got for you, but I hope you all are having a fabulous hump day🐪

Hi I’m Korey 👋🏻
I thought it’s been a while since I reintroduced myself!
I’m a 21 year old, Aussie-born, anxiety-driven, poetry-writing, nature-loving, açai-eating, always smiling girl 😁
I’m also a mental illness survivor, passionate communicator, self-love enthusiast and future dietitian 🧘🏻♀️🌱♥️
But where did @storyofkorey come from?
Over two years ago, I was in the depths of an eating disorder - completely transfixed on my body, extremely malnourished, clinically depressed and frighteningly suicidal. As far as I was concerned, I’d given up. I didn’t see any purpose in living anymore, and felt letting anorexia take my life was the solution.
Many people think this must have been the hardest thing I’ve experienced. Being so depressed and fed up with life. But for me, being sick was the easy part. It was my way of coping with the unpredictable world happening around me. The hardest thing I’ve ever done was trying to find the will to live again - my recovery 💪🏻
I began this account on my very first day in hospital. I didn’t expect anything to become of it, merely to find some support from likeminded people, which I did. I was surprised at my ability to support others, despite struggling myself, which gave me a sense of worth and purpose, not only for recovery, but living altogether 🙏🏻✨
I am still in the middle of my recovery, which I’m not ashamed to admit, and can recognise does limit my ability to be a true “role model”. But I’m NOT out here to depict a perfect story of a flawless recovery. I’m here to tell the TRUTH. And the truth is that recovery is f*cking hard!
From my own personal experience, hardships often lead to knowledge, insight, strength and resilience which can be channeled towards the rest of life. And not only can these skills help you personally, they can act as valuable lessons to others. Which is why I share the way I do 🙌🏻
Through your own living you can make an impact on how the rest of the world does, which I think is a wonderful thing! You may not know it, but you are an #inspiration to the people you know and love. Your life is unique and significant.

Anyone else sick of seeing strawberries on my feed? Because I know I am😂😂 so I added them after the photo, it’s on the swipe though😂🤦🏻♀️! Protein oats😍 topped with a mini milk bubbly chocolate🍫 with strawberries🙊 for breakfast this morning! Needed something warm today as 1) the weather is trash🗑 and 2) I’m freezing and 3) I needed comfort because I’m dreading today😕 -
Dietician appointment is at 1pm this afternoon and I really am dreading it😪 as it’s in the afternoon, I’ve already told her I’m not weighing in, because that’s not fair. I don’t agree with being weighed at afternoon times...at all! It’s not fair! You have half a days worth of food in you😳 I’d rather not! As you know, blind weighing isn’t for me either, it triggers me knowing that someone else saw my weight and not me!😞 plus, I won’t even lie to you guys (I’m honest, you know that), I’ve been weighing myself and it’s not good...for me anyway🤭 Ana is loving it! I’m going to tell my dietician and I have been logging the loss so I can be truthful with her😞 I have to be! This isn’t the way to be going, not now I’ve come so far already! I know I shouldn’t be waiting for my dietician/therapy appointments to be able to sort it out but as I’ve mentioned times before, it’s like a permission thing for me from my ED team that I can eat😒 whether that’s staying in the comfort of my anorexia, I don’t know, but I definitely need to try and challenge that! I can’t stay like this forever and live a full like😭 come on sash! Please, save yourself😞🤦🏻♀️ -
I just want to say too, to everyone picking up results today...it does NOT matter what that piece of paper says! It does NOT define your worth! AT ALL! Take it from me: I took 4 A-Levels and failed 1 of them...yet here I am, getting ready for my graduation from university in a few weeks👩🎓 IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT IS ON THAT PAPER! I’m here if anyone needs to/wants to chat💜 -
Have a lovely morning guys, I’ll update you all later about my appointment🙊😞❤️

PROTEIN PASTA PARTY 💪🍝🎉 my #postworkoutmeal today was an epic plate of @sanremopasta gluten free high protein penne made from peas, lentils, chickpeas and borlotti beans! 😍 I mixed it with an oil free homemade tomato basil turmeric sauce and placed it on a bed of fresh purple kale, topping it off with several tablespoons of nooch post photo 😜👌 this meal comes to approximately 1150 calories, 90g of protein (from the pasta and nutritional yeast) and 55g of fibre! 🙏🏻 REAL TALK - lots of people don’t believe I eat this much food, and honestly I don’t care and it’s not important to me. What IS important is that I KNOW how much my body needs and wants and will always listen to and satisfy that. The portion sizes and meals I share are not what I recommend YOU to eat because we are all different, maybe you need more or less. I’m not here to say you should eat exactly like me, I’m here to show you that you are allowed to eat in abundance and a healthy amount of food for your body and lifestyle. How are we supposed to thrive and grow if we are not fueling ourselves properly? 🤔 on that note, lately I have been KILLING it at the gym! Yesterday I hit a new PR for my 15kg shoulder press and today I FINALLY was able to squat 40kg for 3x10 sets. I know this doesn’t sound a lot for some, but lately I’ve been really focusing on proper form and lowering my weights. Not to mention I haven’t been able to squat for awhile due to the fact that I tore my right glute and upper hamstring 4 months ago. I am so happy to be progressing and just wanted to share it with you all! Hope you are all thriving too 💕 #whatveganseat#penne#beans#vegan#veganfoodshare#vegetarian#postworkoutmeal#protein#highprotein#vegangains#healthyfood#highcarb#recovery#veganfood#plantprotein#pasta#healthyeating#bodybuilding#veganrecipes#recipe#marinara#tomato#healthyrecipes#healthyalternatives#glutenfreevegan#wholefoods#healthyfoodporn#glutenfree#brisbanevegans
