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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

Go to the shop and buy whatever you want

This evening both my mum and sister were craving chocolate and they asked me if i wanted to go to the shop to get some... I had so much energy, which is strange because today has actually been one of the longest and most stressful days of the term so far. (But i guess its the adrenaline/endorphins/stress or something giving me energy). So i said i would go the shop and my mum also told me to buy whatever i wanted :) And so i did!!

Really i wanted watermelon, but they weren't selling any. So after wandering the shop and putting things in the basket this is what i ended up with!!

A Pepsi Max (i have drunk a little too much diet soda recently... i think i might have to take a break from it for a while?), flavoured quark, a vanilla raw food bar (MMMmmm), marzipan bar (i don't like marzipan, so don't even know why i bought it. But i wanted to try something new!) & a BIG bag of salted nuts, salted corn and even a few chocolate pieces :)

Mmmmm!
  Not sure how much of each thing I'm going to eat... ill let my stomach decide :)






If you could go to the shop and buy any 3 things (food!), what would it be? :)

    1. When i first read your comment i thought it said grilled orange and i was like, ohh thats new. Maybe its nice?! haah
      I must admit i actually LOVE Mcdonalds french fries... or i mean, when i last at them i really liked them :) Though i dont often go there, but if i do... thats the thing i order.
      This sounds really strange, but have you ever tried dipping their french fries into their milkshakes? One of my favourite combos, though sounds weird ;)

      And thank you!

  2. Oooh!! Only three things? haha! Hmmm... I would get some chocolate covered nuts. You're always having them and posting pictures of them, which makes me want to eat some right now!! :) Pineapple!! Something new. Oh, oh bagels!! How could I forget those! I just moved from a place where they don't sell bagels (*sigh*). But now they're pretty much everywhere! And maybe throw in a protein bar or questbar or chocolate for extra! ;) ahaha! (I've never had a questbar. I want to try one as you seem to love them. But I haven't seen any yet, sadly)

    1. I know, they're my favourite treat :) Infact, i love hearing that people try them and love them!! Mmmm, bagels :) I wish they were more commonly found here, in Ireland i used to eat them more often. Infact, ive only had a bagel once here in sweden!
      You should try questbars, i reccommed either cookie dough or cookies and cream. They are a sort of love them/hate them bar.. some say they leave an after taste, but i love them :)

    2. I ordered questbars because you, Izzy, mentioned them so often and seem to be kind of addicted to them ;) So 2 months ago I ordered my first box via amazon -> I love them! My first flavour I ordered was Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, after that I ordered another two boxes with White Chocolate Raspberry and Cookies & Cream! :) I love them and it's hard to not eat all bars one after another, haha :D And I totally agree, CCCD and C&C taste best :)

  5. INBar, that's like the closest thing to a protein bar I can find here, pomelo, this fruit is just so great I'lm actually gonna miss it when I'll have to move back, and lemon&pepper/coffee flavoured dark chocolate I think. It's actually so hard to say cause here those imported goods are very often changed and replaced by new ones so you never know for how long can you expect them to be there. One of the bad points of leaving abroad though. At least you can get new surprises every time!

    1. I've never heard of those before :) That's kind of cool though to try different foods, though of course if there is a certain food you love and they might not import it anymore then its tough :)
