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:

Extra food = Extra energy & Lunch and studying

This morning after my delicious and energy filled breakfast i headed to the gym and i just felt so motivated - so ready to give it my all!!! One of those days where i just knew i had 110% energy.  And i know it came from my delicious food yesterday as well as my super breakfast this morning. Because i was super strong and increased my weights and just had loads of energy, even did 8 minutes HIIT .... hahaha, doesnt sound like alot, but after an hours leg session it feels like forever! And then i had to continue my HIIT - almost - by running for the bus, which is the worst thing to do when your legs are already tired.

Lucky for me when i came home, i already had lunch ready which was the leftovers from yesterday (just heated up some vegetables and might a cottage cheese, garlic and salmon sauce). And my lunch was just what i needed, and afterwards i had some chocolate and coffee - Yup, i eat chocolate almost everyday! Im ok with that, thats what i want and enjoy.

Since i came home its been studying for the past 2 hours 45 minutes...  and now my eyes are hurting from staring at a screen too long and my legs have gone numb - only got up once to make myself some tea!

Now its snack time and then i think im going to my aunts place for coffee and maybe cake? We'll see whats offered, hahah!!! :)

Hope you have all had a lovely Saturday - what have YOU done today? :)
