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:

My Saturday so far!

Hello :) :)

Because of my day off school yesterday it feels like today is Sunday.... (Unimportant information, i know ;))
   I started my day with a sleep in!! I had forgotten to turn off my alarm from last week so when it rang i just turned it off, deciding that i wasn't ready to get up.
   Then when i did wake at 9am it was breakfast time and room cleaning to be done!

I had no motivation to go to the gym and just lift weights, infact what i wanted to do was aeroboxing but my mum and step dad are gone this weekend so i decided instead, this weekend would be a rest weekend. So i brought all my study things to the table, sat down with a coffee and water and decided to spend the day there. But then my sister came and asked if i wanted to go to the gym with her, My response at first was no. I didnt have energy for it and felt i needed to study. But then she said we could do boxing... and then she used the tactic, Please do it for me :) (And ill buy you a celsius!)
   hahaha. How could i say no?

So we headed to her gym and i got to be an instructor and do one of my favourite things - aeroboxing!!! Boxing and functional training, body weight exercises and using what is around you! And after 20 minutes it looked like we had been in a sauna, but we kept going for another 40 minutes!!!
 It felt so great and at the end we just burst into laughter because we were so tired and looked like we had taken a shower, but it was a good feeling!! Variation is key to motivation!

(I am sorry its been so much about exercise this week, i'll try avoid it. But i guess when it is a bigger part of my day i like to write about it, but i know it can be triggering. So ill try avoid it ;) ;))

This afternoon however i will spend studying... trying to anyway!!!


  1. Ahaha! I know that tactic, my sister does it to me from time to time ;) sounds like an awesome workout! Btw what's the mix on top of the yogurt? I see almonds, cashews, seeds but what are those flakes? Just wondering 'cause it looks yummy :)
