On top of the world

After having quite a bad cold for most of last week, I have been feeling particularly incredible this week with more energy then I can remember having for a long time. I seemed to recover from my cold really quickly and I believe that this is purely due to how well I am looking after myself at the moment. Through resting, keeping up with my Herbalife products as well as eating lots of nutritious foods, I suppose my immune system is super atrong and I also providing my body with adequate energy to do what it needed to do to get well again.

My poor boyfriend hasnt been so lucky and has been sick for twice as long as me, most likely because he doesn't look after himself so well. Although I have tried to get him eating more nutritiously, I would never try to pressure him into it as I believe it is a very personal choice and everybody should have the right to choose how they live and what they eat themselves.

I have only had one work shift this week which has really suited me as it has meant that I have had heaps of time to catch up on my university work. I still cant believe just how much I am enjoying university this time around and I know that it is purely because I am now in a much better head space then I was last time I was at uni. I know it can be tempting to try and get your university course completed as soon as possible but I highly reccommend taking a break if your not happy and just focusing on getting well for a while. Studying really can be enjoyable and it should be enjoyable but you need to be in the right frame of mind for this to be possible.

I have been trying some new gym classes this week and I have loved all of them. I feel so motivated for exercise now that I am bursting with all this energy and exercise no longer feels like a chore for me. I love the way it makes me feel and I can feel myself getting fitter and stronger too. I became so weak whilst suffering from anorexia and it feels so wonderful to be slowly reversing that.

I am heading home to Swansea this weekend which I am really looking forward to as I haven't seen my family for ages. It will be great to catch up with everyone although I am a little nervous about what my family will think about my new herbalife products. I am worried that they will be really quick to judge and jump to the conclusion that it is some kind of weight loss program. Fingers crossed I am wrong and they are more open minded to what I am acfually doing Herbalife for.

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week and that your weekend is wonderful too. Stay strong and keep fighting guys... you've got this! <3 xxx


  1. Sorry to hear you've been poorly, but I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better by now!

    What are you studying at uni? I hope it's all going really well for you!

    Have a great weekend! Xoxo

    1. Hi there gorgeous girl,
      I am studying Health Science at university which means I also get to study nutrition which I am loving. I had full intention of becoming a nurse but now I am tempted to stay in this course and eventually become a dietician!
      Stay strong Annie, you are doing such a fantastic job. I am so proud of you <3 xxx

    2. Wow that's so cool! I wanted to be a dietitian at one point, but everyone told me it was a bad idea. I kinda wish I'd pursued it, but hey ho! You'll make an amazing dietitian, I'm sure of it! You have such insight and understanding and experience.

      Thanks so much for the encouragement, it means such a lot right now, such a lot. You're awesome! Loads of love xoxo
