20 years old - Uni Student - ADHD - Anxiety and Depression - Overweight - Ready for a change. Hi! My name is Ffion and I'm a girl who's ready for a change. It's not going to be easy but it sure as hell will be worth it. This is where I'll post about how I'm going to start controlling my ADHD, becoming fit and get to a healthy weight.

By the way :)

This is a healthblr. You won't find any bodyspo or body pictures here because I don't think it's helpful. I am always open to suggestions and I love people to get in touch with me. I track the tag #poppybird20. My Ask is always open so please feel free to say hi :)

Distract Yourself

Along the same lines as focusing your energy, do something to distract yourself from the situation at hand! Watch a funny TV show or read an interesting book. Try to develop a daydream about something happy that you would like to experience in your life. The more you…

Anxiety sucks.

So the levels of anxiety I’m currently feeling about going to uni today is ridiculous. I just feel really worried and scared and can’t seem to get my act together. I have a feeling today is going to be hard but I’m going to still go and face my fears.

Fingers crossed that it goes ok.

So I was walking home yesterday and saw this had been bleached onto the pavement. I have googled it and haven’t found anything about it. Does anyone know what it’s about? I love the hunger games and have read all the books but can’t work this out.

Any ideas guys? Share this if you think your followers might know what this is about because I’d love to solve this mystery :)

Hi guys

I decided that I was going to make a post about bodyspo because it’s been cropping up all over my dash recently from people who I usually LOVE to follow but have been considering unfollowing as a result. 

I don’t think I’m alone in my opinions about bodyspo being detrimental to confidence and very unhelpful when trying to get healthy. 

If you have a body that would typically be considered as a form of bodyspo then great, good for you. And if you’ve recently gotten healthy and want to post a picture then that’s awesome too but what I have a problem with is when there are pictures with thousands of notes just because there is a flat stomach or a thigh gap involved. 

As I understand it the criteria for ‘bodyspo’ SHOULD be this: 

Do you have a body? Then your body can be considered ‘bodyspo’. 
The convention idea of ‘bodyspo’ is NOT helpful. It creates what for some people is an unattainable idea of what a body ‘should’ look like in order to be considered attractive and that can be seriously damaging. 

My darling followers. I love seeing your stuff on my dash and if you follow me I’ll often check out your blog and I want to get to know you all if I can but I am likely to unfollow or not consider following you if you post lots of ‘bodyspo’. Please please, let’s stop this idea of what the ‘perfect body’ should look like because in truth there is no such thing as the perfect body. 

All bodies are beautiful. Every single one of you reading this has a body that you should truly be proud of. 

Please try and remember this lovely people because then hopefully society will be one step closer to coming to terms that beauty is not a size or shape or a certain look. It’s about how we feel, act and think which makes us beautiful. 

Loads of love gorgeous people, hope you’re all having a great day :)

If you anonymously send a really nice ask and I don’t answer it, I’m not ignoring you…I just wanna save it so I can reread it when I need some encouragement ok.

Here you go fantasticfruitandwheretofindthem and imhellafit ^.^

This is the recipe I loosely followed however I did make a couple of changes:

1. I don’t use maple syrup. For me it overpowers all the other lovely flavours from the spices and makes them a bit sickly sweet. Instead I use 1 tbs of unrefined caster sugar and one tbs of muscovado which is so good!

2. I also add a bit more water than the recipe suggests which just makes them a bit lighter and also you can make more.

3. Finally I also use far less batter per pancake then this suggests. I find otherwise they can be a bit stodgy and I prefer them slightly thinner and lighter.

Hope you guys like this recipe and the changes I made to it :) let me know if you give it a go :)

Oh and I got the butter from Holland and Barrat. If you don’t live in England though I think you might be able to order it online but I’m not sure. Hope you find it! Xxx
