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?
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
This week of the challenge has just flown past for me. I think by now I've found junk-free meals and healthy snacks that I can depend on, so it isn't as difficult to find things to eat as it was at the start of the month. One downside is that my diet is pretty predictable.… Continue reading No Junk July: Week 3
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
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!
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
As a Depressed Person™, 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
I've never been an incredibly fit person. Apart from a few furious yet short lived bursts of exercise obsession when I was younger, physical activity has never really interested me that much. Sports are even worse. I can't imagine anything more horrifying than having to run around and interact with other people while my sweaty,… Continue reading Why I Do Yoga
The past few weeks of my life have really been sucking. I don't want to get into it right now and bum you all out on a Friday afternoon, so instead I'm going to give you a quick pre-weekend update about what I've been up to lately. As I write this post I am sitting… Continue reading A Simple Friday Update
I've been a vegetarian since I was 11. I spent a few years in the middle as a vegan, but ultimately I settled on a vegetarian diet to nourish my body while not being to difficult to make, or limiting my eating out options. Now, I'm a firm believer in the 'whatever floats your boat'… Continue reading A Tale of Two Tastebuds: The Struggles of Feeding My Army Man a Veggie Diet
