Update: Acupunture, Meal Plans & Healthy Eating

Hey guys!

I know that it has been a while since my last proper written post, but here I am! I wanted to do a little update on what’s been going on lately, and the things that are planned for the future.

Firstly, a little update what has been going on health wise. The reason why I haven’t been uploading many things lately, quite frankly has been because I can’t. As I mentioned before, the issue with my hands and wrists has become a lot worse, and the terrible rainy Dutch weather hasn’t been helping! However, last week I went to see an MD + acupuncturist to see if she maybe had some ideas on what to do and how to manage with the pain. I was skeptical about acupuncture and wasn’t too convinced that I would see results, but hey, when you are desperate, you will try just about anything.

Managing with the diet

Hey my loves,

So the prospect of me living this type of lifestyle isn’t easy. To be completely honest, this whole start of summer hasn’t been easy yet. Thinking that you have had an illness for 8 years and dealing with it only to find out that you might not have it, is tough. It leaves you in a vulnerable place, in which you don’t know how to deal with the current situation.

Medical tests aren’t fun at any time, especially not in summer. I have yet to find out what is wrong with me. Even now, a week after my injection, I’m having a hard time writing down these notes on paper without screaming out in pain. Fair enough, life goes on, hopefully we will find a solution soon.

My diet on the other hand, seems to be something for life. I have been doing my best for a while now; eating clean and exercising. I can’t say that I’ve seen a difference yet, but I’ll have to be patient. Continue reading » » » »

1000-1200 Calorie Diet

Hey my loves,

I just wanted to update you all on what the current situation is over here. So as I mentioned before, I’ve been doing some blood tests and other things to see what is up with my health. Just over 8 years ago I was diagnosed with having Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in both wrists, and Tarzal Tunnel Syndrome in both ankles. It was very unusual and uncommon for a child of 15 to be diagnosed with this, so the doctors figured that I might grow out of it and therefore would not need surgery. 8 years later, and I am still dealing with almost daily nerve pain in hands and feet to the point that sometimes I cannot pick up a pen or fork, let alone type. SOOOO, we figured, this summer it would be time to finally get the surgery, which takes around 10mins per hand, and just get it over and done with.

Back in Business

Hey my loves,

I finally have some time again to start bringing some life back to my blog, it has been too long!

daily-motivation-25-photos-1719As previously mentioned, the reason why I was not able to blog much during the past 6 months was because I was in my final year of my degree. I had a massive dissertation project that was due in that took up most of my time. I am currently still waiting on the results of that, and of my exam too, so fingers crossed until that time! I have also accepted a University offer already, and I’m looking forward to a new start there. I will be studying Child & Adolescent Mental Health 🙂 It is exactly the route that I have always wanted to go down. Previously I always wanted to become a pediatrician, however that didn’t work out exactly as planned, hence me doing down the path of Psychology. Being able to work in a clinical setting with children, and having the opportunity to work with Great Ormond Street Hospital would be an absolute dream come true.

Im Baaaackkk (sort of…)

Hello my dears!

Yes, I am still alive! (more or less), it has been an absolutely hectic time lately. As I had previously mentioned, I’m in my final year of University, and had been working hard to finish all my deadlines and submit my dissertation. I have finally finished everything! Except one exam in around a week time, dun dun duuuuuun. After that, I’ll be hopping on a plane to see my family in Spain 🙂

For the meantime, I thought I’d share a few snapshots of things that have happened.
