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:

Running music tips?

I am in need of some new running music so i thought, i will turn to my blog and my readers and see if any of you - hopefully - have any good music? I dont mind whether its old or new... i do like an 'up' tempo and a fast beat.
If you have any suggestions or you just want to share your favourite workout/running music then please comment!! :)


  1. I like pendulum they are a good band for running , particularly the song 'watercolour' or I LOVE lady Gaga, especially the song 'manicure'. I go through phases though , but like you I love up tempo stuff , good luck today

  2. Some Disney songs are great for running use, good examples being I Just Can't Wait to Be King from Lion King and Zero to Hero from Hercules. Janet Jackson has one song that I really like, Rhythm Nation (not sure if it's enough upbeat though, but at least it's sassy). I Don't Feel Like Dancin' is one hell of a classic. Candyman and Ain't No Other Man by Xtina, Everybody by Backstreet Boys (!!).

    Then there are the Ducktales theme, Pokémon theme, Nyan Cat..

    Welcome to thw Jungle (Guns 'N Roses)

    Superstition (Stevie Wonder)

    More Backstreet: The Call and We've Got It Going On

    Beyonce's Run the World

    By MJ: Scream and Black or White

    → I hope at least one of these is pleasant :D my taste is mostly quite... unordinary, I guess

  3. Some Fall Out Boy songs like XO, or Champagne for my Real Friends, Rat a Tat, She's my Winona, The take Over the Breaks over, This Ain't a scene it's an arms race, Thnks fr th mmrs,
    I also like My chemical romance: Boy Division, I'm Not Okay (I promise), Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)

    Lol they're kind of pop-punk songs, but they have a really good beat

    some others are: Harlem by Good politics, Ready to Go by Panic at the Disco, Still Into You by Paramore, Gangnam Style by PSY

    I could give you so many more.. Haha

  4. Anything by icon for hire, their songs are so inspirational
    unbreakable, stronger than you think by fireflight
    never look back by the nearly deads
    live is evil spelled backwords and dead serious by picture me broken
    I write sins not tragedies by panic at the disco

    Those are just some songs from my playlist

  5. Some songs I love running or walking to are 'Beautiful day' by U2. Queen is pretty upbeat. 'They don't need to understand' by Andy Biersack. My favorite songs to run to would have to be by Arctic Monkeys. Here are some of their songs: 'Yellow bricks', 'Arabella', 'Why'd you only call me when you're high'. Hope this helps :)

  6. Faster songs;
    All the Single ladies- Beyonce
    Blurred lines- Robin thicke
    Animal- Neon Trees
    Poker Face- Lady Gaga
    Thrift Shop- Macklemore

    A little slower songs;
    Life in Color- One Republic
    Shake it Out- Florence and the Machine (gets faster in middle)
    Maps- maroon 5

    And good old disney ;)

    Kiss the Girl- by Ashley Tisdale
    I'll make a man out of you- (from Mulan)
    Trashin' the Camp- (from Tarzan, has a good beat)
