Breakfast is Bran Flakes with milk, a yogurt cup, orange juice, and a spoonful of peanut butter from the jar for spreading on the banana 🍌. I hope that everyone has an amazing day filled with friends, joy, and as little eating disorder thoughts as possible! #edfighter #eatittobeatit #nourishtoflourish #nourishnotpunish #foodisfuel #edwarrior #prorecovery #foodismedicine #recoverywarrior #anorexiarecovery #fuckana #anawho #recoveryisworthit #strongnotskinny #boobsnotbones #mentalillnessrecovery #foodisfood #nourish #bravery #eatingdisorderrecovery #anarecovery #antiana #breakfast #wellness #balancedeating

Some days we eat all the veggies and cook from scratch, but some days this is supper.
Today was rough. Maddy is sick again, which meant someone had to stay home with her yesterday (that was me). She still had a fever last night, so someone had to stay home again (I took the morning, Adam took the afternoon).
Missing that 1.5 days (in my third week back, and on a short work week) really f’d me up. It fd me up to the point I nearly had an anxiety attack in front of my coworkers. Those feelings of feeling incompetent, and overwhelmed, and like I made the wrong decision to go back to work, all hit me like a ton of bricks.
I have had my general anxiety disorder pretty much under control for the last couple of years, but I can feel it tugging at me again. It hadn’t even gotten this bad with school this last semester.
I’ve realized just how important my routines have become to me. I know to some my weekly routines can appear anal, but they allow me to cope when the uncontrollable happens.
This week, none of my usual routines were in place (namely my Sunday planner time where I see what I’m up to, meal plan, and chore plan). That lack of preparation meant that when the uncontrollable fact of a child becoming sick hit, everything has gone into a tail spin.
So ... McDonald’s for supper. I didn’t have anything planned for dinner, I ended up being at work an hour later then I planned, and I was mentally f’d up.
Part of me felt like going through that drive thru made me a failure. But after taking some time to talk with my hubs, and spend quiet time on my balcony, I’ve calmed my mind and know that I am not a failure for choosing food. Some may disagree, but they’re not me and I’m not them. ***

No idea...but ill eat it
#weird #foodisfood

nourishing my bod with greens and things!
today I wanna chat about FOOD NEUTRALITY.
it’s this idea that food is just food.

there are no “good” and “bad” foods.
(cookies are not poison and kale is not a super food) a cookie is a cookie and kale is kale.
once we ease up on the judgement of food we are free to eat based on our Body Wisdom and what will make us feel most nourished and alive in the moment.
while this is an important and powerful mentality to have, i think this description is missing a vital distinction.
you see, personally, i’ve never really put kale and cookies on the same level like this description would imply meaning i didn’t really stop judging food completely - RATHER i stopped judging MYSELF for eating food.
it’s not that cookies were no longer a “bad food” in my mind instead I decided “I was not bad” for eating cookies. (and so we are clear I am not saying cookies are in fact bad, again food neutrality is still important but there is more to the story)

in order to get to this judgement free zone with myself and what I ate, I had to become weight neutral.
once you no longer judge your self-worth based on weight, you will no longer judge yourself for eating a certain way.
you will stop obsessing over food when you stop putting pressure on yourself to be skinny.
food loses its power when we become weight neutral, not food neutral in entirety.
head to my blog to learn more about this very important distinction IMO. and if you’d love to get to this place of food and weight neutrality, send me a DM 🤗happy thursday babes! #caraskitchen #bowlsbyC

I had lunch out with a friend today! We went to Williams Fresh Cafe and I had an avocado, spinach, egg on a bagel with a cup of soy milk. I missed this! Going out with a friend and having a good time opposed to letting my eating disorder bully me out of enjoying my life because of food. Win for me :) #edfighter #edwarrior #eatittobeatit #anorexiarecovery #edrecovery #nourishnotpunish #nourishnotpunish #weightgainiscool #lunch #cafe #fuckana #foodisfuel #foodisfood #foodismedicine #prorecovery #anawho #antiana

Long post warning:
Never be ashamed of your story.. You never know who you are helping or how much you are helping yourself heal and recover 💕💕 From as far back as I can remember I have always struggled with body image. I remember even as early as Kindergarten comparing myself to the other girls and thinking that I was built differently. However, it wasn’t until 2010 that I started acting out on this. Bulimia began to sneak into my life around this time and really grabbed hold…fast.  It became addicting and the biggest coping mechanism for anything that went on in my life whether it was good or bad. I was able to keep this part of me a secret for quite a long time but in 2017 it had gotten out of control. I am so thankful for my friends and family who helped me see the bigger picture and that getting help was nothing to be ashamed of. The left picture is when I had just recently gotten out of a 4 month program at Atlanta Center for Eating Disorders to help get me and my life back on track. The program helped me immensely but I soon realized that the work didn’t stop the second I got out. In fact it was a lot harder. I had just started working with @heatherlwilkinson of @breakthroughstrength and remember taking this picture. It took about a million tries to try and get one that I felt comfortable with using as my before picture. My goal was simple. To view food in a healthier manner. I really didn’t think it could be done.. I was almost to the point of just accepting I would have a skewed relationship with food for life.  Macro Numbers  246 C/ 55 F/ 123 P
Right picture: 2 weeks ago. MUCH happier, MUCH healthier, and eating WAY more food. Current Macro numbers: 375 C/ 66 F/ 145 P If you would of told me a year ago that I would be eating this much food, losing fat, gaining lean mass, performing better, and not letting bulimia consume my every move I would of totally laughed. I promise it can be done. I still have a long road ahead but the more I continue along with macros the more I am realizing how much more IN CONTROL of food I am. Food has lost its power over me ( Continued in comments)

Avo toast from the gods 🥑 aka @farmersfridge. A nutty bread topped with garlic lambeh (apparently like a Greek yogurt), cucumbers, avo, a sesame/garlic/pepper seasoning and light drizzle of evoo. YUM! #overallhealth #foodfreedom #healthylifestyle #foodisfood #healthymindset #intuitiveeating

Breakfast today is greek yogurt, granola, blueberries, a glass of milk, and a piece of toast. School today :( :( Normally I like school but it's almost the end of the semester and I'm burnt out. Can anyone relate? Keep fighting this illness beautifuls. ED doesn't get to win this! #edfighter #eatittobeatit #eatingdisorderrecovery #foodisfuel #nourishnotpunish #prorecovery #boobsnotbones #nourishtoflourish #foodisfood #strongnotskinny #weightgainiscool #weightrestoration #foodismedicine #bravery #breakfast #edwarrior #fuckana #anawho #recoverywarrior #anorexiarecovery #morethananumber #antiana #fuckanorexia #recoveryisworthit

Pasta and chorizos! I went to see my dietitian this afternoon and she highlighted the amount I have achieved within a month by just developing a healthier relationship with food. I hadn’t stepped back to consider how much I have grown over the past few months until tonight. Make sure you are always your biggest cheerleader and acknowledge your accomplishments, I am so proud of myself of the process I have made in recovery #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorderreality #eatingdisorderfighter #eatingdisorderwarrior #eatingdisordersupport #eatingdisorderawareness #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisordercommunity #eatingdisordertreatment #mindfuleating #foodisfood #intuitiveeatinglife #intuitiveeatingismypath #mindfuleatingforlife #intutiveeating #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthissues #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate

You know the old saying "pretty as a picture".... that's what I thought when this came to the table. I ordered the Spasagna that I chose on my birthday cause it was so good the first time I tried it, plus they give you so much I now have lunch too.

My not very healthy lunch today.. better than not eating 🤷

Afternoon snack is a major win!!! I had two mint chocolate ice cream cones 🍦🍦:) This snack is unmeasured so I have no clue how much ice cream I actually had, which is really unsettling for me. But it tasted good and I felt satisfied after :) Keep fighting everyone <3 You're stronger than your ED! #edfighter #edwarrior #eatittobeatit #anawho #eatingdisorderrecovery #anorexiarecovery #nourishtoflourish #nourishnotpunish #bravery #strongnotskinny #foodisfuel #foodismedicine #foodisfood #prorecovery #antiana #weightgainiscool #fuckana #recoverywin #boobsnotbones #fuckanorexia #weightrestoration #icecream #snack #edrecovery #recoverywarrior #mentalillnessrecovery #mentalhealth #morethananumber #recoveryisworthit
