RECIPE | LOW CARB CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

Thursday, June 29, 2017



Frazzled is literally the only way I could describe my current emotional state. Gracie's teething process is completely off the charts insane - we're racin to keep up with her runny tummy, nappy rash,  sore ears, grumpy face and crying (so much crying). My niece has been staying with me during the day because of school holidays. 9 year olds and 4 year olds are so different. It seems obvious, but really, they are SO different. I'm not sure I'm ready for a prepubescent daughter. My goodness.

I roll out of bed, place my feet on the floor and stand. I take a few steps forward and SNAP! I am assaulted by a sudden wave of excruciating pain. What the holy hell was that? I look down and see one of Sophie’s many Barbie’s sitting on the floor in the exact spot I just put my foot.

TW: BDD, EATING DISORDERS 

I've started writing this post so many times and I always stop half way because it's so difficult to talk about. Loving the body you have is an exercise in learning and unlearning so many things. 

A couple of weeks ago I was busy doing my 3 month declutter and I came across a shoe box full of my old journals from high school. I opened one up from my matric year and it was filled with such self-loathing it left me reeling. While reading the terrible things I wrote about myself, one thing became very clear to me: I never want my daughters to feel this way about their bodies.
