I was an anorexic teen too. But can safely say I was cured in my teens. Running does help but I also love food now too which also helps. I am careful but do love my treats too, keeps you sane.
I understand too as without running my life falls apart but it can also make you very ill too especially un fuelled. We are just worried Lotte. You are an amazing runner but an amazing Mum too as CM says.b
Yes I know how you feel. I have periods of posting on there, and then periods I just use the running club pages. I don't try to be witty I must admit!
My depression has been mostly cured by the HRT, but yes August, September and October were awful for me. Then I had two weeks on and two weeks with the first HRT trial, hence this new variety. Still have bad days. I didn't cope too well on Monday with Roly dying and felt like I was sinking again but I seem to have resurfaced this morning OK.
Can't be faffed with making my own houmous. I make so many things from scratch I feel things like houmous, pesto etc are so good I do buy those ready made. I do make all sauces from scratch though.
Not 'met' Pip yet. Sounds like congrats. Pip I am Mum of twin boys aged 7.5 and wee girl who is 4 in May. I am nutter marathon runner, quite quick but getting old and not as quick as I was sadly, and always injured at the mo as been running too long!! Currently also been diagnosed with early menopause too so am on HRT mix of coil and oestrogen tablets which is working well and stopped the awful blackness I had in the summer, plus all the other awful big M symptoms.
Boys all off to see Yeovil vs. Ipswich tonight. Late night for the boys as will be 90 min drive home, but they are soooo excited. Best get some tea in them. Sophie and I are staying at home !! Sophie doesn't know yet!
Oh yes TT. I scoff loads of things like Beetroot, carrots, loads of other root veg mostly raw, except for parsnips etc. Loads of green veg. I do eat musesli still but with loads of seeds and nuts etc, but sometimes after a hard training session a big bowl of pasta or rice just hits the spot so well I don't eat bread anymore, unless I know it's been made properly and even then not much of it. Its not wheat with me though its yeast. I do eat rice cakes but do find them bloat me up for some reason a bit like bread?
I also eat full fat everything now too And eat plenty of dairy cos of my lack or oestrogen.
Houmous is fab and I eat stacks of it as do the kids. Shame eggs are upsetting you, we love them in this house. Maybe we will go down the chicken route!!
I couldn't be vegan or veggie for that matter. Life is too short
Just had physio. Needles in my back and gluts, IT band and quad tendon. Ouch!! Nice! Back again Thursday. He is still optimistic I will make London, but if I do it will be a training run for my ultra. I might even practice some food!! Anyway, small steps. Will try and run again tomorrow.
