The other night I went out for drinks with a friend. It was late, so even though I’d eaten dinner I was surprisingly hungry. We had a nice time, but I ended up eating an entire basket of fries a bowl of chili (and having a few drinks). I unzipped my romper underneath my jacket at the restaurant and felt incredibly, uncomfortably full
.
I cancelled my plans for later, partly because I was tired and partly I felt so physically uncomfortable that all I wanted to do was lie down in my pajamas. I started to feel bad about this like I used to when I would binge eat: “I shouldn’t have eating habits that make me skip out on plans! This is a big, bad deal!”
.
But then I realized that beyond being overly full, I was just tired. And perhaps I’d subconsciously stuffed myself because I didn’t have the energy to something Iater, and I knew that if I was uncomfortably full,  I wouldn’t be able to. Binge eating used to be an avoidance tactic for me, something my brain would jump to as a way to get myself out of something I didn’t want to do. (One thing that helped me stop binge eating was slowing down, taking note of when this would happen and seeing if there was a way to deal with the problem directly—cancelling a workout or plan, shifting studying to later).
.
Anyways, I went home, changed into loose comfy clothes, and FaceTimed my brother. Alleviate physical discomfort, give yourself compassion, and distract from feelings of physical discomfort—these are things I learned over many years of binge eating, and it’s what I do today when dealing with uncomfortable fullness. Physically, I knew I’d feel normal again soon—our bodies can digest a lot of food, and that’s cool. Mentally, the “I ate so much therefore I am the worst and everything is terrible” thought process only has power over me if I give it that power. And I chose not to. .
.
So I woke up the next morning feeling fine—that’s not something I used to be able to say. .

👇🏼 Have you ever used overeating or binge eating (consciously or subconsciously) as an avoidance technique? Something that “forces” you to workout or gets you out of a certain event? Maybe this resonates, maybe not🤷‍♀️ Either way, let’s chat💛.

Reflecting on my past with extreme panic disorder, health anxiety, ocd, and just general anxiety. I worried about so many things.
I made a list once of everything I’ve worried about happening before, the list is very long and the worries are so detailed. I would take a worry and think about it so hard until I felt like I had just received news that it was true.
Looking back on all my worries throughout the years:
NOT A SINGLE WORRY CAME TRUE.
Not one.
Oh the time I spent diligently preventing each and every worry. When in reality it wasn’t happening in the first place....
Let’s just say my mind is very creative.

Comment below things you’ve worried about in the past that never came true👇🏼

Eating disorders are complex mental illnesses. Anyone, no matter what their age, gender, or background, can develop one. ⠀
.⠀
Realising that you or someone you know might have an eating disorder can be very frightening, but remember that full recovery is absolutely possible.⠀

Taking care of yourself is fucking hard. Especially if you’re addicted to self-destructive habits & allow yourself to get into the pattern of not caring about yourself. Everyone has their preferred self destructive habits. Drinking, smoking cigarettes, self-harm, eating too much or too little, sleeping too much or too little, allowing intrusive thoughts & depression to consume me—the list feels endless of ways I’ve allowed myself to self-destruct over the years. & I never wanted to stop any of it. I thought I was going to wake up one day and be like “okay time to stop being terrible to myself & turn my life around!” Nah. That day never came. I had to force myself to start trying whether I wanted to or not because I knew where I would end up if I continued on the path I was on. It’s endless work taking care of yourself. Its constant effort and shifting of mentality. It’s excruciating and scary and exhausting & isolating & infuriating. But the moments here and there where I feel alive & grateful to be on this earth, the sense of accomplishment that comes with facing reality head-on instead of blocking it out, the glimmers of hope I feel about the future for the first time ever, makes it feel worth it. For the most part. Still got a long way to go but at least I am on the right path. Much love to anyone else who’s struggling in similar ways.

Are you having sciatica like symptom? There’s a trigger point to release it! #repost @acuvanture •
•
If you’re having sciatica like symptoms that radiates down the lateral aspect of your leg then most likely a tight glute med is involved. Try rolling it out with a lacrosse ball! •
•
The specific acupuncture point is called GB29 which is located on the lateral aspect of the hip joint, at the midpoint of a line drawn between the anterior superior iliac spine and the prominence of the greater trochanter.

Are you suffering from plantar fasciitis? Well there’s trigger points to release it! #repost @acuvanture •
•
Most of the time this occur is because we have tight calf muscles. It could be due to the foot wear and training you’ve been doing. Couple hours of walking or running in the wrong foot wear could bring you pain for months!

Try to roll on a lacrosse ball like in this video to ease the pain!
