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!

No school Monday & some positive things

Its Monday and today i have an inset day in school, or a so called study day! Which i am super thankful as i really do have alot of work to do :( By Christmas time i will be mentally exhausted. But im working on my stress management and not worrying/stressing too much... its already affected my body loads these past weeks. My body feels and looks so different compared to summer due to all the stress -_- But im going to skip the body talk on here, and instead go straight to my breakfast which was quark, raspberries & my home made chocolate granola which tastes delicious (its not crunchy buts its still delicious!), coffee and an orange :)

Last night i watched the movie 27 dresses with my sister - ive seen that movie plenty of times but i still love it! Infact, i should put it on my list of favourite movies :)

As i have no school today i got to sleep which felt great and was much needed, but at the same time felt strange waking up at 8am today when i usually have to wake at 6. The thought of having to go to school tomorrow is not a fun one... i wish i could just make my own time schedule :( And it doesnt help with it being kind of dark still in the morning at 8am and by 3-4pm its almost pitch black outside. But i digress..... Its Monday so lets think positive, set up some goals for this week :)

  1. Study and get my work done - but not stress too much
  2. Run or do HIIT 2-3 times this week
  3. Laugh everyday

And some positives about today

  1. My breakfast was so delicious so i went to take a half portion more :)
  2. I have no school today
  3. I can wear my new sports bra at the gym today.... hahahah XD
  4. My breathing has gotten a little easier :) (For those of you who dont know i suffer from Cystic Fibrosis)

:) Some goals and positives for this week/day!! Why dont you try the same thing :)


  1. Remember: It's a new day, a day to focus on the present and not let the stress continue on from yesterday. Hope your day goes well Izzy!

  2. I think starting off the day positive is a great thing! It sets the mood and you start you day off right. I should really start writing down the positives in my life. What's the point in always focusing on the bad. Thank you for promoting health and happiness and light, Izzy! I'm so happy there is a place for people including me to get so much support and reassurance and good information. I just want to remind you how helpful your blog is and who super mega thankful and glad I found your blog. I don't know where I would've been or want I would've been doing if I were to not find you blog. Thank you<3
    Hope you have a great day!
