I took the plunge and ordered my first pair of @gymshark leggings!!!!!!!
Everyone's butts looked so good in them so I couldn't resist!!!!!
I will admit I was skeptical. All of my leggings are religiously from Lululemon so I didn't know how they would compare.
The verdict: AMAZING. The waist band doesn't slip. These ones are NOT see through. They are very stretchy. They don't give me the classic Lulu camel toe (although they do kinda look weird sometimes in the vag region, but nbd). They fit short people like me without being too scrunchy at the ankles. AND THE CONTOURING DOES WONDERS FOR THE BOOTY OMG.
My only complaint is I wish they were more high waisted. I find the band sorta cuts into my hips but maybe next time I'll size up and see if it helps!
Even with the exchange (because the Canadian dollar sucks) they were still cheaper than Lulu and have the same quality, maybe even better which I am very surprised and impressed by.
Definitely will be buying more!!!!
Not sure if they pill like Lulus do? But guess I'll find out.
I ordered XS and am 5'2/5'3ish and weight I have no idea cause who really cares lol
And of course I had to do the classic booty pose I apologize πŸ™ƒ

FINALLY HOME. It's kinda bitter sweet.
I'm so happy to be home but I'm also sad because this trip has been such a huge recovery win for me.
From going out to eat everyday to taking time away from the gym.
Now that I'm home I'm realizing how silly it would have been to miss out on those things because guess what? I AM OKAY!!
In fact I feel better than okay!!! I feel so damn good!!!
It sucks it took me so long to find this happy place between recovery/fitness/living life but I feel like I'm finally finding it!
Its nice to just come home, not feel the need to get back on track (cause I never felt off), be excited to eat my own food again and actually be excited to workout again!!!!!! But for now, I'm off to cuddle with Mim and Beans because I took the red eye home and feel like a zombie right now.

ANOTHER DAY OF HAPPINESS.
Sometimes I feel repetitive AF but I remember even a year ago thinking I'll never be free. I felt so stuck. So hopeless.
And now here we are on a beautiful Sunday, I just had the best vegan pancakes ever and I'm just so genuinely happy!!!!
So if you're struggling right now, I hope you know that you won't be stuck forever. Yes, it takes time. But I promise it will be worth it. The days you feel like a busted can of cinnybuns will 100% be worth it to finally be able to experience days like this where you feel nothing but genuine happiness!!!!!

Deciding to take 2 weeks off of the gym to travel and explore has been one of the best decisions I could have ever made for myself.
For those who struggle with travel anxiety, I know it can be hard but think about it this way: 2 weeks is 14 days. 14 days out of 365 is really nothing in grand scheme of things. YOU WILL BE OKAY.
The gym will be there for you when you get home but for now I just want to experience things that I never felt like I could before aka pancakes at midnight or Olive Garden breadsticks.
These 2 weeks I truly couldn't feel any more at peace with my body, self or this decision and it's times like this where I realize how far I've really come πŸŒΈπŸ‰

When people say you shouldn't show your body. Hmm can't relate. Hate to break it to ya but we all got bums!!! PS: I spent literally half my life hating my body so the days I feel good yes I'll embrace it!

Dress shopping because I leave for Vegas tomorrow!!!!! I'm literally the most introverted person in the world and oddly enough LOVE Vegas. Very strange, I know.
Also, as you can tell I've been having fun trying new food so any good Vegas food suggestions are appreciated.
I hear there is a Cinnaholic there? MY BODY IS READY. THE CINNABOOTY IS SO READY FOR IT!!!!!!

MY FIRST CHURRO EVER!!!!!!
I'm sorry for all the food pictures but I've conquered so much this trip in terms of food. This is such a big deal for me.
I've ALWAYS wanted to try one of these but my brain would always tell me NO.
"Too may calories, too many carbs, its deep fried, you're gunna gain weight".
It's so easy to live in our little safety bubble. Missing out. Wishing we could eat delicious food.
WELL I DON'T WANT TO BE THAT GIRL ANYMORE!!!!!
I wanna eat the damn churro. I wanna make memories. Even if it makes me uncomfortable. Even if I have to deal with the thoughts that come after eating it.
Because I know eating food like this is hard but a hard day in recovery WILL ALWAYS be better than another day stuck in your disorder.

Had my first Olive Garden experience last night and all I can say is where have those bread sticks been my entire life?!?!
This trip has been absolutely amazing.
I haven't felt this genuinely happy and free in a very long time!!!!

I AM IN VEGAN PARADISE!! 🌱🍚
The best part about this trip has been not feeling limited when it comes to food.
Instead of worrying about my food, I'm more focused on just enjoying myself and making memories while I'm here.
We found this cute little vegan cafe to eat at today and IT WAS SO ADORABLE!!!! I got tofu rice paper rolls as an appetizer and for my main course I ordered the teriyaki tofu and veggie stir fry with a bowl of steamed white rice on the side 🍚🌱 This food just makes me feel SO good. Food freedom makes me feel good.
And knowing I'm helping my fuzzy friends out along the way makes me feel even better πŸ”πŸ€πŸ·

Recovery win #1 of my trip: EATING MY FIRST EVER PIEOLOGY VEGAN PIZZA!!!!
Last time I was here anxiety, fear and guilt stopped me from doing this.
BUT NOT THIS TIME!!!!!!
My goal this trip is to get out of my comfort zone and moments like this make me realize how freaking far I've truly come in my recovery.
A year ago I could never even imagine myself doing this BUT HERE I AM TODAY DOING IT - no guilt, no worrying, no overthinking and most importantly with the biggest smile on my face!!!!!!!!
