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!

Rest and recovery

Yesterday was a day where i did practically nothing... infact i stayed in my 'pyjamas' all day. I cant remember the last time i didnt leave the house once in the day... i am the type of person who goes a little crazy if i just spend the day inside all day, even a 2 minute walk to the shop is better than just being inside. But nope, yesterday i didnt want to leave the house at all. And my parents drove out to the forest and took Daisy for a long walk so i didnt need to worry about that at all.
    So what did i do? Well my standard series watching. Lots of food & handfuls of nuts and dried fruit throughout the day.
    The day just seemed to fly by and before i knew it, it was time for bed and i was actually feeling tired despite me not doing anything!

This morning i woke up with double the amount of energy!!! Yesterday was a well needed restday!
   Today i have some unofficial plans, so im not going to mention them yet.... incase i do end up just spending the day doing nothing, but i hope not.

On another note....I have barely been replying to emails recently and i really dont know when i will begin with it again. And im really sorry. I do reply to a few emails when i get a chance, but recently i havent had so many chances when i can. But also school starts in 2 days so that will also make it harder to reply... but i am trying my best :) Im only human!

I hope you all have a great Monday!


  1. Glad you got to rest up izzy!! I am sure if you felt tired than your body needed it :) and especially considering that school will be starting soon :) for the person from a previous post who commented that izzy is exercise addicted, well, obviously she is not... :)

    1. Yeah, rest was well needed :) haha... im sure i could write that i have rested for a whole week with no exercise but someone would still come and tell me i do too much exercise or that i have orthorexia etcetc But i know im healthy, i know why i exercise etc so it doesnt really matter to me what others think :) But thank you!
