Here is to recovery, to the process, to the individual journey we all embark on. To be alive is a gift and I believe it should be lived fully. I don’t say this lightly, I spent many years of life not wanting to be here in the peak of the Eating Disorder and trying many ways to get out because I didn’t know where I fit in. Turns out the journey is exactly about not fitting in, it is about being you. Life wanted me to be here so I worked hard to get to know myself, beat ED and celebrate that eccentric nature. I have always felt things very deeply, wore my heart on my sleeve and lived in my own world (Yoga helped me utilize both and make it work) on this journey through hard times and good times I learnt to fall in love with living and vowed I would live it fully and give back to others where I could help. Sometimes it is fun or reflectful walking in rainforest (or literally swinging off the vibes @jonesyahh
), finding your purpose and what you were meant to do so you leap out bed (dont be hard on yourself this can take a while) I like dancing and singing my heart out, spending days alone writing and others with amazing friends because I seriously have no idea how lucky I got having you all. Others days, it is acknowledging where my weak areas are and delegating when I need to. To literally living -in the natural, in the moment and even keeping it real on Insta stories. May we all get to keep experiencing this and keep putting in the work, it is worth it.. 4 years ago I wouldn’t of known the girl in this picture. Happy Sundays Babes, you got this xx ❤️❤️

Day 5 post op ( Totally in awe of my new tummy!!) 💕
Wow!! I had a really good sleep and I am feeling so much better today!
I'm now off my pain pump and have switched to oral pain medication,so not feeling so groggy now either which is a plus! 🙋♀️ 💉 My hemoglobin levels are improving slowly ( Yay! ) , still on the low side so I have started taking iron pills in hopes to bring my iron levels back up so that should also improve my energy levels too!
I had one drain taken out today which was a welcome relief as it's honestly such an expedition getting up with all if these drains, wires and what not! But I still have 2 drains in ( they can't come out until they are draining under 30ml and atm one of them is draining 350ml which is insane!) And I've still got my vac machine attached to me still but I honestly can't wait to be drain free!!! Also I my leg compression pumps came off today so nice to be just in compression tights now! 🙏
But omg seriously isn't my tummy looking amazing!! 😍 I can start to see my shape beginning to form and it just brings tears to my eyes,I feel so f**king beautiful! 😭
I'll keep doing my post op updates for now as it's super encouraging to see/hear you guys are enjoying them! 💕
I'm getting more mobile each day and doing little walks every day I'm seeing some improvement so that's super encouraging! 🚶♀️

I love this diagram, it really explains well some of the symptoms you may have which could indicate that you would benefit from a detox!
Who else feels like their bodies may benefit from a detox?
This is not my diagram, I just found it online and thought it explained the benefits of ridding our bodies of toxins!
Happy Sunday morning from sunny Romania. I prepped a salad this morning for everyone with fresh ingredients from the farmers market. 😎💚🌱

Blue skies and sunshine ☀️ Today we’ve been reminiscing about songs we used to all sing 🎵 movies we’ve loved, dreams we’ve had and achieved how lucky my parents are 👴🏼 to have lived in this amazing part of the world 🇫🇷 for over 20 years!
Dad always says, achieving your dreams is nothing to do with luck it’s to do with careful planning 🙌
He’s so right, we’ve planned everything in our lives so far & im going to continue living a life I love by design (just like he did/does) ✨
Do you live a life by design?
Do you have a job you love?
Live in an environment or him you love?
Are you in a good relationship?
Do you have your health and happiness?
If so, then hats off to you but if not then it’s time to take a step back and start thinking about how you can start making steps towards living a life you love ❤️
It doesn’t get much fresher than this. Here in France 🇫🇷 we’ve found the most amazing supermarket @grandfrais
it offers the most amazing, fresh and nutritious produce 🥕🌶🥝🍓
We’ve eaten here everyday whilst visiting Dad as it’s just over the road and brought back some healthy produce for my Dad to indulge in too 👴🏼
It’s been a fruit picnic everyday to help him with his energy levels 💪
