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…

Fidget toys.

Fidget toys!!

Who hasn't heard of them lately?

These thing are everywhere.

Your younger sibling might have one, that guys in the street, you friends, you might even own one. It's surprisingly difficult to be in a public place and not see one. This has sparked several conversations about how useful these things really are. They're the latest craze. Some people question the usefulness of them and others are all for it, some are cautious because they are literally everywhere and can be a distraction in schools.

I'm leader at my local guide unit and last time we met several of the girls had the fidget spinners. I'm not going to include a photos because we all know what they look like. At out unit there are 4 leaders including myself (we have a big unit). One of them works at a primary school so is very up to date in what these things are, the other two had no idea what they were all about. We had to convince them about their usefulness and that they could help with pe…
