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: email@example.com

Its Tuesday (though ive thoughts its Wednesday all morning) and my only sleep in day!!!! I got to sleep in i.e 90 minutes more than usual and still had time to go out for a morning run!!!
On Thursday we have a cross country race (5km) with school and really, 5km isnt that much, but still.... im nervous. Infact, i could do a test on the ABC's and i would still be nervous and think i would fail ;) ghahaha. But its this pre-race nerves.... and also, i have this pressure and expectation to do well! That i have to do well, which isnt really the case... but it is an actual race. Not like the colour run or midnight run where there were hundreds/thousands of people running and not a race. But now its time that matters!!!
I went out for a 6,4km run and it felt like my lungs were on fire....Now when school is so busy my CF care isnt going as well :/ and also, cant do so much cardio which = Finding it harder to breathe.
I wrote that i saw The Fault in our Stars on Sunday, and if you've seeen it, or read the book and how Hazel talks about her lungs... lack of breath. How walking up the stairs can make her feeling light headed... Yup, thats how im feeling at the moment.
So it was just to fight through those feelings during my run as i know that running (and swimming!) is one of the best things i can ddo for my lungs and CF care.
My new September goals are to begin doing HIIT again (and running!). Since i sprained my ankle i havent done HIIT at all, i.e almost 3 months now... so i think its time to start doing that again ;)
I still have lots of time before i have to leave so going to try write some blog posts, maybe answer emails if i have time and if i still have time (though unlikely) maths homework needs to be done!! :)
Have a lovely day everyone, i am sure i will!!!
