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!

Running: Better than therapy!

Yesterday i wrote that i wouldnt be doing any cardio until i felt that my legs were better and what do you know, i wake up and there is no pain in my legs and i have lots of energy! I was undecided about whether to go to the gym or go running, but as i really wanted to run yesterday and still had that motivation i decided to go running. Also the fact that today i decided i needed to stay home and focus on my CF care as well as study.... running and cardio is part of my CF care, so it was a good idea to run!
  It was foggy outside but that didnt stop me... infact i just sort of flew (??) forward, but had to stop and walk all the time because it was so icy and slippery. But the parts that i could run i loved it, i didnt want to stop!
  My running motivation is deinitely back now and all i want to do is run everyday.... Run outside anyway. Just the thought of having to run more than 10 minutes or a treadmill makes me bored!! haha I can run 10km easily outside but that is a real struggle when you're ona  treadmill. So it makes me kind of sad that my running motivation comes back now, just before it starts getting icy and slippery outside :( But as often as i can, im going to try running outside now :)

^^Im the freak in this case :)

For the rest of the day its study. study. study & extra CF care. Though im not sure whether ill go to my afternoon lessons or not, it all depends on how i feel!

Days like this, i like to call CF benefit days ;) Got to get something good out of having a chronic illness.


  1. It looks so cold and misty in Sweden, does it snow at all this time of year? Over here we pretty much have sun all year round except for the occasional thunderstorms. I kind of like it when it does rain, guess that makes me opposite of SAD. Haha. X

    1. Usually it snows by this time in Sweden. Last year or the year before it had already begun snowing lots in the middle of October... so im sure within a few days or weeks there will be snow. Its already very icy!
      I wish i lived in a warm country!! haha :)

  2. Hi Izzy!
    Hope you had a nice day, despite all the thoughts about your blog. My advice is to maybe take a break from blogging and see how it feels and do a list of what is positive about the blog and what is negative. Just to clear your head. You are so young and should not feel any pressure about not being able to help everyone. And negative comments are terrible burden to a such a sweet girl as you.

    And about running, it´s the best!!! I would run much more if my knee and hip wouldn´t start hurting when I run long distance.

    Hugs! startingtofightfitlife

    1. Thank you.
      I might just do that, but im going to see how i feel maybe talk with my family and see what they think as well :)
