Catching Up

My last public post was made in 2015.
I can't even remember off the top of my head anything that happened in 2015.

What I've Learned About "Healthy Living"

There are a lot of myths out there in the fitness world. 
Trust me, I've done extensive research, and not everything I've found has proven to be true.
That being said, I should probably note that I am not a health and fitness expert, nor am I a trained professional. You should always, always, always consult your doctor before changing up your diet - don't ever consult the Internet. It doesn't have your medical records.

How It Feels to Gain Life Back

I have experienced somewhat of an epiphany. And I'm going to share it with you. 

I've only spoken very lightly on my past struggle with an eating disorder and related anxiety. I spent a solid four and a half years constantly struggling with negative body image and dysmorphia, thoughts of purging and self-harming, restriction, obsession with losing weight and exercising; the list goes on. 

I went through therapy for four months - something I never thought I would do. I lost so much weight, including muscle mass, it was hard for me to do anything for long periods of time. I was constantly freezing. My lips were blue, even in the summertime. I wore a sweatshirt everywhere I went, and I had trouble getting to sleep at night. 

Living every day of my life that way, constantly tormented by an inner voice that nagged at me, telling me lies about myself and urging me to continue down the path I was going. The path that could very well have brought me to my death. The path I have no intention of ever looking back on again.

"Thankful" = "Happy"?

Hello again, old friend. It seems my little break turned into a 50-day complete absence.
I hadn't exactly intended for that to happen.
Seeing as it's Thanksgiving Day, I thought it fitting to return to my beloved blog and start plunking away at the keys once again. I'm actually getting a little nostalgic just now. :')

I took a fabulous idea from the lovely Carrie over at All I Know Now and decided to write out a page full of things that make me happy. Little things, like toe pads (which you will see on my humble list below), and somewhat larger things like electricity and Internet connection. 
Really, I would be very, very limited without Internet. I couldn't even do my schoolwork!
...Then again, maybe no Internet wouldn't be such a horrendous thing... ;)
