A little possitve

So if you've read any other of my posts you will know by now that I'm at the beginning of my recovery process for my eating disorder, in my last post I said that it was going ok. That is still true. Considering thing are going ok at the moment I'd like to share a positive that has really helped me kinda eat more these past few weeks. That positive would be smoothies.

I know its a little weird but please bear with me on this one.

So I would say that I'm a little weird simply because I prefer fruit over chocolate, I have done for my entire life. Not necessarily because I think that fruit has less calories in it than chocolate (I have no idea if that is true, I hope it is though and I am assuming it is) but I just prefer the taste of fruit. Yes, i still will eat chocolate but I don't always enjoy it as much as everyone else, especially since I can see how many calories there is on a bar. But I'm not going to lie, before my eating disorder I would happily sit and eat a bowel full of chocolate ice cream if I was upset and thoroughly enjoy it.

Above is a snap shot of my smoothie. In an attempt to get me to eat more my mum brought me a smoothie maker as a surprise. The one she brought for me was a Breville one that came with 4 bottles that were 2 different sizes, one was 300ml and the one above is 600ml. So everyday I make smoothies, usually when I get back home from college it's the first thing I do.

I don't like eating still, but I have no problem drinking a smoothie that I've made. I find that weird as I know how much stuff is in it. I know that there's a full banana in there, sometimes two, and loads of berry's, not forgetting some sort of fruit juice. If you gave me a bowel containing all of that and asked me to eat it I really doubt I would, not all of it anyway as I'd feel full and sick. Yet I have no problems drinking all of it in a smoothie form. I have no idea why having the stuff blended helps, but I'm not complaining. 

I am fully aware that I can't just live of blended food for the rest of my life, because I really doubt blended roast dinner would be nice at all. But it seems to be working right now. Fruit is good for you, especially if you put fresh fruit in it and proper fruit drinks that hasn't been loaded to the brim with added sugars. So I would really recommend trying smoothies out if you want to eat a little healthier or eat more. I don't know if this would work for everyone, but it does for me and that's all I care about personally. But it's worth a shot, especially as you can pick up smoothie makers quite cheep now a days as more of them are coming on the market.

So yeah, smoothies is my one little positive that's really been helping me lately.



  1. So glad this is helping you get better and plus, you can have them on the go! x

Hiya all.

It's been a while since my last post hasn't it?

A lot has been happening in these past moths My life has taken a roller-coaster of a journey. One full of pain and excitement, love, self acceptance, hard conclusions and fear, lot of fear, it's been quite something.

During this time it might look like I've taken a break from blogging and in some ways this is true, I've taken a break from Acting Natural, but I've been blogging more than ever before.

So today I'd like to introduce you to Lost In The Story.

This is my main blog and is the reason I haven't posted in several moths, I've moved sites.

So why have I done this?

Reason one being that as a blogger I've started to expand and grow. I love Bloggers simplicity but as I started to write more I wished for more control of my blog and the only way I could do that was to move platforms. It's been a bit hard learning a much more complex system but I'm loving it.

I've also changed …

Growing Pains

Growing up is a scary thing and in all honesty, I can't stand it.

I don't understand that at the age of 18 and now being considered an adult I have to act differently and all my old childish but comforting habits need to be demolished. I don't understand why I get disapproving looks when I don't do things others my age do.

Now that college is over people of my age are making the exciting transition to Uni or full time work, but mainly uni.

I'm not doing this.

I've just came out of college with an BTEC Extended diploma and a Sup diploma in forensic science. It's more than enough to get me into uni but I'm going back for a 3rd year at the hell hole more commonly know as college to study business.

When people ask why I'm not going to Uni in September my reply is usually along the lines of "I have a years left of funding and I want to make the most of it." This isn't a lie. I do have a years left of free funding so I might as well get anot…

Growing up

Now that we've safely stumbled into May it is time for my college course to be coming to an end. My friends are off to start the next chapter of their lives at Uni, some are going to spend a year in full time work and others are taking a gap year to get a deeper understanding of how the world works.

As for me?

I have no idea what I'm doing next.

Sure I have plans and fall back options just encase I don't find something better to do, but realistically I don't know what I want to do.

University is out of the question as I'm not confident enough in my future to get myself into thousands of pounds of debt, I'm not really in a position to pay the several thousand for my discipleship year, nor have I got enough funds to pay for the higher education course that I wanted to do at college. I have got an unconditional offer on a place studying business at my current college for a year, this is just my fall back option though, but I am glad to have it there.

Believe in yo…
