Life without Anorexia

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

I am a generally happy girl who loves running, going to the gym and eating food!! Though my life has been very different.
I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia & purging tendencies & over exercising. I was depressed and self harmed. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
After alot of struggles, lots of ups and downs, suicide attempts, tears, anxiety, panic and never thinking i would be healthy.
I am now declared healthy from anorexia nervosia.

I have been blogging for 4 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 am happy and healthy and living my life. Going to school, meeting friends and trying to find myself in this world.

I write about my daily life, but also try to write posts about how it was when i was sick, advice and tips.
I am open and friendly, so dont be scared about writing a post or sending me an email at:

Friday and my last weeked before school starts again....  I have mixed feelings about school starting again. haha

Today has been a really good day!!! First off i had a workout session which went awesome :) And then i came home and ate a small, light meal (3 egg sandwiches ,.... does that count as small, its small for me anyway!) and then i waited a while before we went to pick up my step dad who was at work and we all went out for lunch.

We went to a vegetarian buffet and at first i was only half interested... it was a buffet but it was behind a counter, so someone else put it on the plate and i was a little apprehensive to that. I mean, how do they know how much i want? But actually it was ok, it was just to tell them if you wanted more. However the options available werent alot, but what i did eat was delicious!
  And the combination of hummous, falafel, beetroot and sundried tomatoe is a new found favourite combination!!! Mmmm
 Double portions for me... i didnt think i would manage 2 plates, but i did. The rest of my family only ate 1 plate... hahaha, Sometimes i worry about my stomach capasity!!!

After that it was some walking in the shops before we came home. And only an hour after being at home i was hungry again so ate some dark chocolate and fruit...and that filled me up until a late dinner!

Tomorrow is the race i have been longing for but at the same time worried about for the past few weeks. But i am now 100% decided that i will run it. My ankle feels fine though as its concrete the whole 10km i am a little worried about that :( And also anxious because its so late... i dont know how energetic i will be. However im guessing that when i stand there at the starting line i will have lots of energy && chocolate and an energy drink as prerun :) :)

Tomorrow is also a special day for another reason, which you will find out tomorrow morning :) :)

Now its time for a night snack and im thinking, Peanut butter right out of the jar? and some series watching!


  1. I hope you enjoy your run tomorrow and your ankle doesn't cause you any trouble!!

  2. Izzy good luck with the race tomorrow, i will cheer for you!! >_<

  3. Have a nice race tomorrow!

  4. Have a nice race! You will do great!! Ooh wonder what the reason is. Maybe it has to do with your love life... Just a guess ;)

    1. Thank you.... not really love live (wish it was!!!), more health!

  5. I know why tomorrow is a special day for you. I'll keep it quiet tho. :) let's just say... Congratulations on all of your hard work and commitment to your health.


    1. hahah :) everyone will find out tomorrow (today) anyway... though its no secret, i just havent talked so mucb aout it?!
      And thank you!!!

  6. i'm's your health-iversary? :) :) :) :)

    1. yes!! ^_^And i like that name, health-iversary!!

  7. By the way- don't sweat the concrete. I have ankle issues (netballer) and most of my runs are largely on concrete. The advantage over grass is that it is less unpredictable- no holes etc :) But just remember- don't push through the pain if it's below the waist!

    1. Thats true, however i feel that it becomes so much pressure when its concrete and can feel pain in my knees from it... but im going to make sure i sort of flow forward and slow down when i feel it starts becoming heavy, so that i dont just stomp down my feet as that will most likely cause pain! :)
