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:

Its finally the weekend!!

Today i didnt have that Hallelujah, its the weekend feeling when on the bus home from school. More just a tiredness. However, once i got home and started preparing my snack then that feeling finally came!! Infact, when i was in school this morning i sat and thought...i am going to make a super delicious after school snack! I dont often think about food like that, I dont prepare or plan food before i eat it, but today that was just what i did and my cravings werent wrong!!!

Also when i came home my dad was here (he's here for the next few days visiting from Ireland). He is aware of the fact that i have lots to study this weekend but i am planning to prioritize school work and then spending time with my family and im not planning to workout this weekend as i dont feel i have time for it and that it would just add more stress instread of relieve stress. But who knows, maybe i will find a patch of time.

Let me know if you have any post requests - any topics you want to read about or read more about. And i will try fix them for the weekend :)


  1. The rest of my family is coming next week and I haven't seen them in a couple of months, so I kinda know how you feel right now ;)
    Is that some kind of bread? What's on top? Very interesting and looks yummy!
    Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. That sounds really nice :) I hope you have a good time with them.
      Yeah its my microwave bread (from yesterday) & spread and chicken!

      And thank you, i hope you have a lovely weekend as well!

    2. Ahh, thank you :) mmm, chicken. Thank you so much!

  2. I wondered if you could write a post on when exercise becomes excessive. As I've previously over exercised I don't really know what is normal/too much now. I enjoy doing it but I love it so much I don't have a clue when to stop as some days I feel like I could keep going for hours. Thankyou! Hope you have a lovely weekend with your dad! :)
