Eating Disorders




Eating disorders are the branch that overarches anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder.

There is nothing that is a clear cause of an eating disorder, which can make things harder for friends and family to understand. Eating disorders are serious and people with this disorder need support and care to get the right help and get well again.

Symptoms to look for if you are concerned someone has an eating disorder include:
  • ·      Isolation from others.
  • ·      Secret eating and purging through laxatives or vomiting.
  • ·      Spending long amounts of time on the toilet, specifically after meals.
  • ·      Strenuous exercise routine, even when injured or unwell.
  • ·      Severe weight changes.

·       

These are just some of the signs someone has an eating disorder. If you suspect a loved one has an eating disorder, let them know that you are worried and that you care about them.
Encourage them to see their doctor or school counsellor, but don’t force them to (unless they are significantly underweight and their health it at risk).  
Treatment Options

Therapy: therapy can address the emotional needs of your thinking, behaviours, relationships and environment. You will be speaking with a trained specialist and they can help you get through this time.

Medication: Although there is no medication that can directly treat an eating disorder, there are medications that can help with related issues.

You can find other treatment options here.

19 Things I Have Learnt In 19 Years





It was my birthday yesterday, and while it was a very chill day I reflected on the things I have learnt over the last 19 years. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly these are the things I wish I had known and have learnt over the last 19 years:



1. It doesn't matter what other people think about you

2. Crash diets dont work, it's about living a healthy lifestlye with balance

3. quality friends are more important than quantity.

4. If you don't workout and eat well 90% of the time you will get fat

5. Talk about your problems, ignoring them wont make them go away

6. Not everyone will be in your life forever

7. Relationships will happen if they are suppose to be it you force it, things won't work out.



8. Life is hard.

9. Do things for yourself

10. People are sexist af and the gender wage gap is real and shitty

11. Your mental health is important so look after it just as much as your physical health

12. You will probably hate your part-time job while at uni

13. You can make all the excuses in the world not to workout but that isnt going to hange anything

14. If you want something, go after it.

April Life Update: Back To Blogging, Mental Health And VLOGGING???






What a month April has been! Not going to lie, it has been actually pretty shit.My last blog post was the 24 of march, which was exactly a month ago. I took a break becasue I needed to focus on myself and my health. So what have I actually done??
A lot of personal things have happened however they are to do with family so I'm not goingto discuss that stuff but in terms ME a lot has happened.

Health and Fitness: The last month I have changed the way I eat, eating healthy whole foods, but also if I want chinese for donner or a piece a cake I will -but I won't over do it.I have also started walking which has turned into running. On June 11 I am doing a 5km run/walk and on October 29th I am doing a 12km. I am super excited about both of these becuse it gives me a goal to work towards that I can challenge myself with. Also I have lost 6kgs (and that was after Easter) which wasn't even on purpose. Change your mindset and stop making excuses. I am also starting vlogging so I can vlog my health and fitness journey.
