Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 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 now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

Baking saffron buns

One of my favourite things about Christmas is all the Christmas food. I love the buffets, the baking, the chai tea, smell of freshly baked buns and also i love saffron and cinnamon :) (Though i eat cinnamon pretty much everyday!)

As i spent the day at home focusing my CF care as well as mental care i did lots of studying and in between studying i did some baking. In total it takes c.a 2 hours to make the buns so when they were rising i had time to sit and study french! I also want to thank all of you who sent me links to french websites as well as french music and podcasts :) Ive begun listening to french podcasts while travelling to/from school/places and even if i cant understand it all, i think hearing the french will help me :) So im hoping that for my test next week i wont fail completely :)

Otherwise my stress levels have gone up and down all day.... going from feeling no stress at all and feels like i have nothing in school/anything to worry about to suddenly feeling like im in a state of panic because i realise i have so much to do and not enough time for it all.... So trying to find a mental balance and peace at the moment.

But taking a peaceful moment to enjoy my Christmas inspired snack - rice pudding (added LOTS of cinnamon and raisins afterwards), 2 home made saffron buns (but ive eaten like 4 or 5 in total ;)) and orange and also some chai tea.

   Im also thinking about finding a good book to read, as reading is always a good way to relax and de stress, focus on other things. And much better to read than to sit and just stare at a screen. 

And thank you all for the comments on my previous post. I know im not the best at replying to comments at the moment, but i will try my best. :)
