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!

Summer plans & plans for the future

I got asked 2 questions which i thought i would answer in a post :)

What are your plans for the summer? 

This summer, like most of my summers i have no plans at all. This can be both nice but at the same time a little anxiety filled, because i hate the feeling when the days just pass and it feels like all ive done is be at home and eat?
  Most of my friends are away this summer so i'm just going to have to find fun things to do anyway. My parents often plan things on their own... they take the boat out for trips, take a weekend away etc etc and im not always counted into those plans. But im hoping we can take trips to the beach and forest anyway!!
  Most of my summer will be spent out in the sun, going for walks or runs. Going to the gym, eating...

This Midsummer however i might be going out to an island to celebrate... depending on what my friends are doing etc
   And in a few weeks my step dad turns 50 so we have rented a cottage where we will stay for a week and have a party for his birthdaty!!!
  Apart from that, no summer plans. I will just take things as they come, try to make some plans everyday!


What are you plannig after you finish school?

I am going to continue studying, in some form or another. My whole family is telling me to go to university as  i am one of those people who finds it easy to study and gets good grades. Has always been good at maths etc
  However i dont know if thats what i want. I want to be a health coach - health, fitness, nutrition. So i guess i can go to University and study nutrition etc but there actual programs to become a health coach, which isnt exactly university, but its still school.
  I havent done so much research into the actual programs... but i know i should.

Sometimes i doubt myself, dont know if i want to bea  health coach. But i know i want to help people... i want to help people reach their goals. And i love exercise and health, I know for sure that i want to work with that, aswell as helping people. However i dont want to be a personal trainer. 
   Yesterday i was talking with my sister about what i want to do... and maybe i will just create my own job? I mean why do i have to just do the same old thing as others? I can create a new job, my own business.... 
  I dont know! The future scares me, its so uncertain. I dont know what wil happen... I can only make my choices, try to steer myself towards my goals, but in the end i dont actually know what will happen 10 minutes from now, none the less in 1 year or 5 years from now!

  1. what about a psychologist/therapist alongside being a health coach? you would be a great and cheerful (& smiley!) one :)
