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:

Stressful day and seflies 101

Today has been a VERY stressful day. So much running around, being certain places at certain times. I've felt this inner stress all day and small things have irritated me all day. Though i got my little while of inner peace, of relaxation and me time when i went to the gym. I felt so much calmer and focused after that... a time for me to just breathe!!
   Otherwise, its been taking the bus here and there, climbing SO MANY STAIRS. I think ive climbed the equivalent of a sky scraper (feels like it ;)) today.
  When i finished school i pretty much ran to the bus, came home, quickly made some casein as i needed something filling i could eat within 5 minutes. Which i ate while my sister did my hair and make up and i was out the door again within 25 minutes. Then i was on a bus on the way back to school where it was then a group photo followed by individual photos and finally our dressed up photo!!!
  My idea suddenly felt very silly... I really shouldn't compare myself but i did. And also when it came to looking at the photos... all i saw was myself and how bland i look. hahah. I really do hate school photos. So instead you get my 101 other selfies i took today :)
   Why can't selfies just be our school photo? Would be so much better!

I then spent 40 minutes after school replying to many emails - let me know if you haven't recieved an email as i dont think they all sent?
   And now im finally home at 6.10pm, and writing a blog post before i begin fixing dinner-  super hungry and craving sushi!!!  Wish we had the ingredients at home... but i think i am going to have to resort to just salmon and noodles??? Almost the same thing... if we had rice it would be better!

^^Shameless bathroom selfies when no one else is in the school :)

^^Daisy when i came home... hahaha, not at all jealous that she has spent the day in bed. I would have also liked to do that :)
