Hello humans! It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a recovery-related update, and I think a lot of that is because life is good and any issues I have with mental recovery are quickly forgotten about due to how busy I have been! Of course I still have weight to gain but I am no longer at that critical weight where I have to essentially just sit and eat all day.
Life is good. I’m busy–I have a lot of work in my classes, my dance season has started, I’m applying for reporting jobs for the summer and next semester and I just feel like I’m constantly go-go-going. I also still have doctor/nutritionist/therapy appointments so that takes up time as well. I’m always tired due to boyfriend’s stupid work schedule, but hopefully I’ll get over that.
Mostly, I just want to inform you all that just because I haven’t been constantly blogging about recovery does not mean that I’m falling behind. Quite the opposite, actually. I’m challenging myself often and just enjoying life. I have energy to dance and I’m working on figuring out my future. It’s hard to dwell on an eating disorder when you see how amazing life is outside of it. Feeling down that I don’t have a 6 pack? So what, I have energy, a butt, clear skin and get to eat tons of food all day. Screw abs.
I register for my last semester of classes in a few days and that is crazy to me! I only have one real class and then I’m taking dance classes and a yoga class. 🙂 Then graduation! I could have taken that one class over summer and graduated in just 3 years, but I decided to stretch it out to 3 1/2 because I love school and holy crap, I’m only 20. I plan on getting a job at a news station and beginning to work next semester, as well.
Anyway, life is good! Have I mentioned that yet? Jarrett and I are good and I’m doing well in my classes, I’m loving dance and just enjoying life. Speaking of Jarrett–our one year anniversary is tomorrow! It honestly feels like it should be our 20 year anniversary. Not joking.
I’ve been vlogging my week, so there will definitely be a vlog this weekend. I have spring break next week and I have a fun professional documentary project I’m working on involving sleeping on the streets downtown. I’ll fill you all in on that later!
I kind of need to shower. I should go do that. Okay, I think that’s a good short little update for you all 🙂 I have been struggling to put on weight lately as I think I’ve hit a plateau and I don’t see myself realistically eating more than I am right now. We’ll see–at least I’m not losing any weight! I think I’m about 93-95 right now. No, that’s not enough and only puts me at BMI of about 15 but it’s a heck of a lot better than 11!
Okay, talk to y’all later!
