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:

What i do when i am home alone

So.... im the type of person who when my family are home i spend 85% of my time in my room and the other 15% of the time is spend looking in the fridge or int he cabinets or preparing food ;);) I.e maybe not the most social person. Not because im anti-social (ok... a little :)) More that i feel i need my own space and well my mum, step dad and sister all do their own thing anyway so it doesnt matter so much. Though i do usually study in the kitchen and eat dinner with my family when everyone is home ;)

So what do i do when they're not at home.....
   Spend extra time in the kitchen... haha. But its true when they arent home i might bake or make pancakes or make food which i might not usually make when they are home because i take up too much space in our small kitchen.

I walk around in shorts and a sports bra.... even in winter ;) hahah Cant do that when my mum or step dad is home, but when my sister is its fine :)

Take an extra long shower... i dont really like showers but i mean a 5 minute shower instead of a 3 minute shower... that feels long to me :) (I dont like showers because they're too warm or too cold - good observation.  hahah. But i am always so warm so i hate taking warm showers, but i also hate taking cold showers... So you see the problem? :)

I play music on loud speaker :):)

I walk around the house... i dont snoop or anything but i feel that i can go lie in the sofa (which is not a comfortable sofa at all so i dont usually do that :)) or stand around in the kitchen or do headstands etc etc

But i mean generally... i dont really do anything different haha. Sometimes id ont even notice that anyone is gone.
  But i do like coming home after school to an empty house... its usually then when i have low blood sugar and basically if anyone talks to me ill give them a murder look ;) So its nice to come home to an empty house because then i can just eat something, drink coffee and by the time someone comes home i am back to my good mood again :)


  1. Haha I am much the same when nobody is home. I love it.
