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:

I like to warm up with 10 sets of selfies ;)

What to do when you're excited to get out and start running but realise you have 6 hours to go?..... (scheduled post... i wrote this at 4.15pm!) -_-' I think i ate my Ben and Jerrys too early ;) hahaha. Too much energy right now!

So instead, i decided to take some selfies  :) :) There wont be so many pictures of me running so it will be before/after pictures... though i dont think anyone i.e my mum will be waiting at the end but at least me and my step dad are running the race together (though we've said that we will run in our own tempo and meet at the end!)

If you dont like my selfies, just skip this post :) But serisouly... why wouldnt you like my 101 selfies?  Self obsessed? Only when im excited!!!!

 ^^^hahahah, my desk just gets messier and messier!

hahaha, if my hairband hadnt been there it would have been an ok photo... ohh, and the chair???!!


  1. Don't worry, they're actually not selfies as you didn't take them (or did you use self timer?) :---) Just a bunch of good, happy pictures capturing an amazing lady! Good luck again, though just an idea of running after midnight makes me drowzy :D

    1. Sorry, I meant more like around midnight than after!

    2. *cough* *cough* self timer *cough* *cough*.... ill pretend someone else took them ;);) Though the full body ones my mum took?! :)
      Yeah i already feeling tired, but im gonna eat some dried fruit and crisp bread and take an energy drink before and i should be good to go! I think the crowd and 40 000 other runners should get my energy levels up!!!

  2. You can tell that you're super excited just from reading your latest posts, haha! I don't know what it is, just the way you're writing and the selfies and yummy food. I love taking selfies (most of the time anyway. Sometimes they just don't turn out good). A lot if people think it's self centered, but I personally think selfies is a great thing. You can feel good about your self just looking at a selfie. And who cares if you post pictures of yourself. It's your blog. Besides, I love how happy and energetic you look. It makes me happy!
    I wanted to ask you about energy drinks. How often do you have one? What brand? What are the pros and cons? Do you recommend it? So many questions! I've never had one so don't know much about them and wanted to know your opinion on them.
    It's great that you're running the race with your stepdad. Wish I could do that! ;)

  3. You seem so tall here! How tall are you, if I may ask?

    I want to get a tattoo as well but I don't know where to look for a tattoo model. Do you have any ideas where I could look?

    Irina :) I simply adore you...
