How to deal with weight gain after restriction

Sunday, September 17, 2017
When you first start restricting calories, you think you have found the one solution to this long, ever lasting search for weight loss. When you really commit to the calorie restriction, you see results. Results you have been dreaming about for years. Those results start making you happy. They give you this rush, almost a high. They start to influence your happiness. They become part of your identity. Slowly they become the only reason for your happiness. Without the restriction you feel empty, lost and not yourself. You can't imagine a life without it. Giving it up sounds scary. It feels like that day will never come. But believe me, there will be a day where you can say you want to change, and really mean it. There will be a day where you are ready to stop. Where you're ready to heal. 

Once you made this decision the excitement kicks in. You're motivated and ready to change. You don't want the old behaviors anymore. You don't like them. They stop feeling like your identity, they stop feeling right. So you slowly start to eat more. Your body loves it. It notices that you're giving it the fuel that it needs to function like normal again. After you have been in a constant state of hunger your body needs a lot to make up for all that time it lost. It wants all those calories it had to miss. And preferably as fast as possible. So you start to eat, more, and more and more. You feel great. You have energy. You feel happy again. This cloudy fog falls away. You're you again. You're awake. Everything is great again. And you're still skinny. You start to wonder why you ever felt the need to restrict calories in the first place. "I was just being stupid back then. I can eat whatever I want, how much I want, and not gain weight. I can eat a normal diet, with the normal amount of calories a girl my age needs to survive, and not be fat."

Get me through the exams playlist

Saturday, August 19, 2017
It's August. Summer vacation. Normally I would be at a festival having the best time of my life. But I am not. I am at home, studying. So obviously I am fucking depressed, and have been for the past month since I started  with this "trying to study" thing, that's obviously not working out great... In two days I have my first exam and to get me through this miserable time I decided make a playlist that is making me feel a little better, and maybe if you are also in the same ship as me, it will make you feel better as well.

A spontaneous trip to Berlin

Wednesday, August 02, 2017
Let me start by saying that it rained 80% of my time in Berlin. I know this shouldn't keep me from taking pictures, but sadly it did. So I have barely any shots of the things I was hoping to get. But here are a few. 

Berlin has my heart. Despite the rain it was one off the most beautiful cities I have ever visited. I thought of it as the most breathable city I could think of. No super busy, crowded dark streets. I almost forgot I was in a big world city.

I never feel the need to only really visit the very known and famous spots. I don't see what's so special about that. I enjoy discovering a new city and coming across special spots. One way or another you will pass all the famous places and still see them. I spent the first day wandering around the streets without a plan. Hopping on and of the metro. Surprised every time I stuck my head above the ground with what I would find. Of course in my time being there I passed some famous place, and I am glad I did. They were pretty epic. But I never did any research of this city before hopping on that plane. So my knowledge about what was famous and what not was pretty unknown to me. But I could always tell by the amount off tourists standing in one spot how touristy and famous something was.

My skin and hair routine

Friday, July 14, 2017


SKIN
My skin is very very sensitive. I can't put anything to harsh or special on it, or it decides to break out right away. And not a little, it will break out really bad. I have struggled with acne for 2 years now. And I am so over it. In this time I tested so many products to keep my skin under control. After a long search I finally found a routine that works. I don't break out that crazy anymore. My acne is mainly caused by hormonal reasons but it get's triggered by using the wrong products. I've learned if I just keep it very minimal my skin looks almost clear, and I don't have that much trouble with it. So my routine is now super simple, vegan and fairly cheap. All products I use are by Rainpharma. Their products are all 100% vegan, hypoallergenic, free from preservatives and lokaly produced. All their ingeredients are so nautral and not harsh on the skin.
So let's go over the steps:
