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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

Taking my mind off of things

Hello :)
   Today, i have felt completely exhausted. Tired and low on energy.
 The day has gone slowly today and all ive wanted is to go home and to eat.... an unsatisfied hunger all day. Hormones taking over ;)
  During  my last lesson, my concentration was at zero so instead i began thinking of chocolat-y things! What i should bake or make when i get home to satisfy my craving for chocolate! (Which is not a common thing for me anymore!)
  And then i came up with the genius idea of...a healthy version of brownies with a cookie dough layer on top!! Of course, this has been done before, but i thought i would just mix together some things and see if it turns out good or not!!

So when i got home - starving, i made a huge snack and then began baking!!! And the result... amazing!! Im tempted to eat the whole batch!! And it is very likely that i will.... (hahaha!)



They turned out really good, The recipe will be up tomorrow :)

While i was in the baking mood, i decided to try to be a wonderful daughter and make waffles for my mum & P for when they get home from work! 
  Though of course my abilities to make pancakes or waffles are at about -100..... so... the taste was really good, but the waffles did not resemble waffles at all? Hahah. I guess its the thought & attempt that counts?
  I also made some coconut cream (whipped coconut milk (full fat) with some stevia) and jam aswell! 
Even if the waffles didnt look like waffles, my mum and P really appreciated them and ate them anyway! :) 

I can be nice when i try to be :) 

This evening i really needed the mental break from school and work. To not stress about having to do anything. Instead... be able to bake and stuff myself with lots of yummy treats, that was exactly what i needed!
  Its good to take a break from things - to do something which relaxes you, gets your mind off of your stress related things, and to listen to your body. 

I hope you've all had a great day :)
