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:

Day in town with my family

Its 8pm and im finally home again, wondering where the time has gone..... At the moment i am incredibly tired, or my body anyway - alot of walking, but mentally i am wide awake. Makes for a very weird combination :)

Today has been a really good day, though so different from my daily routines!! And food times has just been small things here and there. For me its always super important to have food with me when im out in town, my family dont get as hungry as me. So when we are out in town for hours i can just pull out a bar or fruit or something when i get hungry and not have to worry about going to a cafe or finding a shop because my blood sugar is low. My family dont find it weird either that i carry around bottles of water and juice and snacks ;);)

After my studying session this morning - didnt get so much done - 2,5 hours just wasnt enough. So more time tomorrow! i ate a small, quick lunch and then my sister and I met our dad at the place he is staying. And then we headed into town where we walked for about 1,5 hours and then we somehow wandered into an Irish pub and there was a Chelsea match on (My dad is a HUGE chelsea fan - hence why my middle name is Chelsea ;)) so we sat down there and my dad said we might as well watch the match and that he would order us dinner if we wanted. It was 4.45pm then and i wasnt super hungry but i figured, he's paying and i might as well eat something. So both my sister and I got a salmon,prawn and avocado salad with a sour cream and chive dressing! Super delicious and also filling!!

When the match was done we stepped out into the cold weather once again and walked for about another hour before we took the train home. And stopped into the shop for some snacks :) Going to watch a movie tonight :)

However as my mind is alert ive just finished writing on one of my essays - i feel the stress creeping up as i have quite alot due and just dont have the time necessary to get everything done as i also want to spend time with my dad. However, i dont want to stress about it. Its not worth it....
   But now im going to eat my snacks and watch a movie with my family :)

Have a lovely evening everyone :)
