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!

A day of getting things done

Good afternoon everyone :)
I am definitely a morning person. Im not such a big fan of sleeping in. My sleep-ins are to 9am or something!! I prefer to get up in the morning and get things done... not feel like ive wasted the whole day.

Today is a day of getting things done - now that im taking care of the house myself. I've already been out with Daisy twice, been to the gym & had to buy a few things while i was in town.
  I've done the laundry, dishwasher (though i do that everyday!), out with the rubbish & recycling & recycled bottles & later im gonna clean the house and go food shopping!! Feeling like a real house wife now ;)

My anxiety and lonliness has passed (Phhhewww.... I guess it had something to do with the hospital then....) as now im enjoying my alone time!! :) No one calling me, no one telling me what to do, nothing that has to be done!! :)
  So its kinda nice!!

Now im gonna continue with my list of things to do!!


  1. Hi, please I have a question. My dietitian repeats me that protein balances blood sugar and aids in tissue repair- essential for anyone recovering from an eating disorder. Also helps to promote feelings of satiety.
    So she’s raccomended me to start the day with a nice breakfast with a large amount of protein cos I’ll less likely to feel hungry all the time. But it’s hard change habits, I’m scaring to feel satiety. In addiction I have no idea of combination. Do you have some easy idea for this kind of breakfast? Thank you, have a nice evening :)))

    1. I know it can be hard to change habits, but protein is great to eat. And now you can try new foods?
      A good breakfast is egg/egg white oatmeal (add egg/egg white when you cook the oatmeal), with some nuts (almonds or cashews have high protein) & milk & maybe an egg on the side, or a slice of bread with cottage cheese/ham/cheese. That type of meal has alot of protein & carbs which will help keep you full.

      Otherwise making a smoothie with milk & yoghurt or even cottage cheese is a great way to get protein into you. And eat that with a sandwich and/or egg and you have a great combination of protein & carbs.

      Foods with protein: Egg, milk, yoghurt, almonds, beans, fish, meat, seeds etc :)

      Making an omelette is also a great way to help you feel full - lots of protein!!
      Or even making pancakes :)

      Hopefully those ideas have helped! And dont be scared to try new things!!

    2. Thank you so much!!!You have been of use to me with your walk-through answer:)
      One at time,tomorrow I'll start to improve my breakfast with your tips.I know that egg is a nutritional treasure...but, there is same old "BUT..." uff, what a ansiety. It's time to recovery, I hope to succeded with eggs. Once again thank you, all the best
