"For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him" #john317 (at UC Davis Quad)
I read this article last week but didn’t get a chance to post about it until now… and man I am still mind blown. “Orthoreixa: someone who is overly concerned, often to the point of obsession, with eating right or healthy.” While this is still a pending eating disorder, it’s very widely recognized. I’m posting about it today because I believe that it still needs a lot more attention.
A lot of you guys reading this probably just think it’s ridiculous, like “eating healthy is now an eating disorder?” It’s not so much of the eating healthy, but being OBSESSED with eating healthy - to the point of where your diet is completely inflexible. For someone who struggled with this mindset for 8 months, I experienced so much anxiety, guilt, and self-loathing whenever I strayed from my regimented eating.
The reality is that orthorexia is something very real and prevalent. In a society that is obsessed with appearance, health, and fitness, there are only more and more people developing dangerous lifestyle habits that are threatening to both the mind and body. Eating healthfully is not about how strict and forbidding you can be, but about eating wholesome foods with balance and flexibility. Being healthy is a lifestyle, but I had to learn that eating healthy is not my life.
Oops… I’m a day late now, but…
Tumbler sent me an e-mail earlier today (April 30th) notifying me that today is my tumblr’s 3rd birthday!
Dang… SERIOUSLY?! Has is really been 3 years already?
Time really flies… hahaha. It’s been fun using tumblr for the last few years. And not saying that I’ll never come back, but I think I’ve retired from tumblr (not that it wasn’t unknown before this post).
Anywho, I was thinking about deleting my tumblr because I no longer use it… but all the memories and fun posts I’ve made. I just caaan’t. Why am I being so sentimental? Sigh sigh apple pie.
It’s been a looong long time since I’ve been this upset. But no worries friends, not talking about any of y’all - I’m super upset with myself. I am SO disappointed and frustrated, the level of self loathing I have for myself at the moment is pretty ridiculous.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been THIS hard on myself, and especially over an exam. Yes, I’ll be upset if I don’t study hard enough or procrastinate, but so far I’ve always somehow pulled it off. Put nope. Not this time. I reaaally messed up this time and I can’t believe how much it’s affecting me. Like, usually after a bad test, no matter how bad it is, it’s over and there’s nothing you can do about it to change your results. But today… Wow. Just wow. I literally want to cancel all plans today, cry, not do ANYTHING at all… So bad that it doesn’t even seem like anything in the world can cheer me up. No friend, no boyfriend, no Disney movie, no anime… This is seriously so dumb. I need to stop this RIGHT NOW.
Whiiiiich is why I’m currently using tumblr to rant. No matter how upset I am, I NEED to move on with my life lol! UGHHHHH
I feel a little bit better writing this out…
Siiigh sorry everyone. Hope you all have a great week, much better than how mines been going so far TT^TT
And the best boyfriend ever award goes to… 💐💕💗
He told me to meet him at the MU today at 12 PM sharp. Now I know why!💗❤️💗 #itsnotevenvalentinesdayyet (at Memorial Union Flagpole)
LIFE HACK IF SOMEONE IS REALLY EXCITED ABOUT SOMETHING TRY TO BE EXCITED FOR THEM OR AT LEAST PRETEND TO BE AT LEAST SLIGHTLY INTERESTED BECAUSE NOTHING FEELS WORSE THAN EXPRESSING SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY ONLY TO HAVE PEOPLE TELL YOU TO CALM DOWN OR IGNORE YOU COMPLETELY
Please enjoy this absurdly cute picture of my hamster😅
