I've felt the effects of eating junk food for days. I have been feeling sluggish and disconnected. I took some time to do a check-in with my emotions and journal about recent triggers. I haven't dealt with the triggers using recovery tools which led me to disconnect from myself and then to stop caring for my body. Now that I feel reconnected, I'm ready to take care of my body again. I'm so thankful for my recovery tools to help me get back on track when I fall off!

  • yourinnerartistRecently went vegetarian,dairy free. More avocados please. Not saying my diet choices are for everyone but I definitely feel more true to myself and grounded when I'm not eating animals. My husband rejected this for so many years and I would struggling to make meals on a budget with his desire for rich, meat meals met. Now I just focus on healthy, creative meals that bring me joy to make and eat!!

  • daughter_of_a_king_2015I am still working on this one. I believe strongly that my trauma triggered a food addiction in me. I am still figuring out how to treat my body well, but I am getting there
