Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

At the gym!!

My first ever gym card was bought today!!! :) Yes... i am actually very happy!! :)
I never thought it was possible.. or that id be allowed!

The gym, the pool and group training!! Oh yess!!
  Of course, i now have to prove that i can eat enough to not lose wieght, and to not get obsessed with the gym and exercise!!!  

When i first went to the gym, i was so unsure of what to do... i first stepped onto the treadmill.. adn trust me.. that was mst probably a funny sight!!! I did almost fall off at first... no idea what to do... what buttons to press.
  But i figured it out! 
In total, i ran 8,5km in roughly 50 minutes... 25 & 25!
  It felt good... while i was running i didnt feel tired, but once i stepped off the treadmill after 25 minutes i almost collapsed.. my legs could barely keep me up.
  But after a 5 minute break i got back up on the treadmill!!

I really jsut want to tone up, and gain muscle but im not going to meet my like personal trainer until Friday.. so until then i guess im jsut gonna use the machines i know how... if i can even get them to work!!haha 

And the rest of the evening will be spent studying!!! :)
  So far a good day!! :)

  1. I am happy for you!
    I am not much of a treadmill or machine person, i don't know how most of them work either, i prefer group training or running outside ;)

  2. 8.5km is a LONG distance. as long as you enjoy it and keep it fun and it's not for weight loss =) power girl! the very few times I ever went to a gym I probably looked like that too, not knowing where to step and how to touch those crazy machines without being killed...

    (btw I changed my blog's url. it's now dayswithouted.blogspot.com I liked that name better)

    good luck answering all of those questions you got! I look forward to reading your answers :) I'm curious ;)
