Love The Skin You’re In Tag!

When I came across this tag here, I instantly knew that I wanted to do it, too. Feeling good about yourself and building positivity and self confidence is just what I'm into. I would strongly encourage everyone else to give this tag a go, too, even if you just write it down and keep your… Continue reading Love The Skin You’re In Tag!

Am I Quitting Dairy?

Earlier this year, I did a No Junk July challenge, where I ate nothing but whole foods for an entire month (check it out here). In the past few weeks I've been reintroducing some foods into my diet, and treating myself a couple of times, and I've come to realise one thing; dairy does not… Continue reading Am I Quitting Dairy?

No Junk July: Final Week

In the final week of this challenge, I've been focusing on making my new healthy habits maintainable, and I've also learnt a lot about my previous eating habits that kind of went unnoticed. I've eaten out a few times this week, and I've been able to find whole food, healthy options without really having to… Continue reading No Junk July: Final Week

No Junk July: Week 2

After the semi-disaster of the first week of this challenge, I was super determined to make week two an absolute success. And I think I did a pretty good job. If I had to rate it, I'd give myself a 9.9 out of ten. There were a couple of challenges, like intense dessert cravings after… Continue reading No Junk July: Week 2

No Junk July: Week One

Despite by best intentions, this challenge started off with a major fail in the form of two Krispy Kreme donuts for breakfast. I haven't been to hard on myself for this though, because I had just gotten off a red eye flight and didn't even realise it was the first of the month! The rest… Continue reading No Junk July: Week One

With a new month rolling around, I thought I would take on a new monthly challenge. So this month I'm going to be taking part in No Junk July! This challenge is all about eliminating junk food from your diet and trying to eat more healthily for the month. I think I eat pretty healthy… Continue reading No Junk July Challenge!

Mental Health Mondays: Mental Health is Hard

Specifically, mental illness is hard. Like, really hard. Why's that, I hear you ask. Because you're sick. But you're sick without any of the sick people benefits. No one is cooking me soup, I don't get any days off work, and worst of all, there's no one looking after me. If you have the flu… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: Mental Health is Hard

How I Keep My Energy Up

As a Depressed Personโ„ข, I spend a lot of time being tired. Having low energy and messed up sleeping patterns are two major symptoms of depression (and lots of mental illnesses), and this is definitely something that impacts me. Being so sleepy makes my life really hard at times. I have to ration my energy… Continue reading How I Keep My Energy Up

Mental Health Mondays: Seeing A Depression Specialist

Long story short, the Prozac has not worked. 24/7 leg cramps that made it incredibly painful to sit or stand or move or lie down put an end to that one. When I went to see my GP she didn't really know what to do with me, and I was so scared that she was… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: Seeing A Depression Specialist

Mental Health Mondays: Putting the Pro in Prozac

I've been speaking about the experience of coming off anti-depressants for a few weeks now (here and here), and now comes the time to start talking about my experience with starting a new one. This is the fourth anti-depressant that I've been on in my life, and all of those in under 18 months. Safe… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: Putting the Pro in Prozac
