About me!!

Hi! I am Hayley and am currently in college and I run on my XC and track team. I love to eat healthy, run, and weight lift. Starting mid junior year of high school I started losing weight and it became an obsession. I started calorie counting and I wish I had not. I played sports all year round so I was very active. I was not eating nearly enough for the amount of exercise I was doing. I kept losing weight and senior year when I graduated I was way to skinny.  I started losing my hair and I was scared. I started upping my calories and tried to gain weight. I gained a few pounds ,but not that many before I went off to college. When I got to college I really got into working out everyday. This is my way of tuning out from the world. Now I feel as though I am even more obsessed with my wight,eating healthy, and exercising. I know that I do not have a healthy relationship with food and I am trying to change that. I am now trying to gain a healthy relationship with food and stop the calorie counting madness! I  love to cook and try new recipes aw well. I am  trying to discover myself in this huge world! I am in recovery from and eating disorder that I am going to beat!

  1. Hey! As a newbie college blogger myself, it’s so nice to find other college bloggers! I’m so excited that I found your blog, and I can’t wait to see what you post in the future! 🙂

  2. Gahh I wish I never counted calories either! It became a horrible habit.. I try to view it as just another # (it means nothing!) and that its just a unit of energy. Theres no set number to make you lose or gain, its just energy. 🙂

  3. Hey Hayley! I think we are both on a similar journey to a healthier relationship with food – I struggled with an eating disorder this past year. Thankfully, I’m much better now, although there are some days when body image issues and old habits sneak up on me. It’s cool to meet you!!

  4. Hi Hayley!! Just found your blog and I love it! Thanks for being so honest, that’s awesome that you’re making an effort to fight the ED. It’s strong, I know, but you’re stronger 🙂 Looking forward to following your blog!! 🙂

  5. Hey Hayley! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and liking a couple of my posts about me and my background. I really appreciate the support! Looking forward to reading more of your posts! 🙂

  6. Hayley, I hear you 🙂 – I’ve been in the calorie obsessed world for years now. There is Hope and Healing! I pray that you experience freedom from these things this semester and that you learn to thoroughly enjoy the way you were made. I’m working to do the same!

  8. Hey, I run track in college and have an eating disorder as well. It’s a tough thing to balance, and I really like your blog because its nice to know I’m not the only one going through this. Hope your having a good season so far

  9. You are SUCH an inspiration, I have been battling with an eating disorder since my junior year in high school but I’m slowly trying to overcome it now that I’m in college, and your recipes are definitely making it easier! So delicious! (:

  10. I know your story all too we’ll lovely lady! I used to have a very popular food Instagram and it took me so long to let go of it.. But when I did it made all the difference. I realised that I was just hanging onto the eating disorder and I wasn’t really choosing recovery at all! Everything we read on Instagram becomes gospel truth! You should try taking a break from your Instagram (or even better, just delete it all together!) and I guarantee you’ll feel so much more free! I know you may feel like you’ll be ‘forgotten’ (I did) but living life is so much better than taking pictures of food/seeing food every second of the day. I hope this doesn’t come across as rude, I promise I’m saying it all to try and help you 🙂 good luck lovely x

  11. Hayley- I stumbled upon your blog and I’m so glad I did! I always like to follow other college bloggers : ) And I too counted calories for awhile but it got so tedious! I’ve learned to allow myself to eat the right foods and sometimes eat my guilty pleasures (but in moderation) and to not feel guilty about it! Thanks for sharing your story and I look forward to seeing more of your posts : )
