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!

Picture An Hour Challenge 8am-8pm

Hello :)
  So today i have taken a picture every hour of what im doing... so here you see my day! 
-I had plans for today but they changed so i ended up not doing anything important today... so a sort of typical rest day for me :) hahaha. Nothing so exciting, but i decided i would do the challenge anyway!

Woke up at 8.30am and made myself coffee, ate some nuts and raisins and then began answering emails and doing my CF care.
^^This is what happens when i dont answer my emails for a few days. (And know if you dont get a reply your email has either gotten lost or ended up in junk mail. I rarely check junk mail, so sometimes they end up there)

Went for a 10 minute walk with Daisy, did some foam rolling, talked with my family.

10am: Ate a proper breakfast. Did some blogging. Cleaned my room.

11am : Spent the whole hour answering emails. Drank coffee, ate fruit.
^^I know it says 18th - my computer settings had gone wrong.

12pm: Took a shower, washed my hair, painted my nails, talked with my family.

13: Made a list of goals for 2015, prepared lunch, watched some Youtube videos,

14: Ate lunch - i was so hungry so i was pretty much eating my lunch while making it, and i wasnt in the mood to try to make my food look good or even photo it, so instead you get to see a photo of the ingredients (quorn meatballs, vegetables, quinoa, cottage cheese, crisp bread and spread (i love putting meatballs on the crisp bread!). Did the dishwasher, continued to wash clothes, watched some youtube videos.

(I didnt take a picture this hour.. so you get this picture from earlier instead :))

15: Continued watching youtube videos. Cuddled with my dog. Took selfies with my dog/of me. (I read that there is a thing called self addiction? And its an actual diagnosis.... kind of weird. And also people who are addicted to mobiles... ive thought about this and whether im addicted or not. But i dont think i am, its just boredom that i use it. I put away my phone when im with friends and family and such... though i think i could use some training to not use it as often!)

16: Snack time... a big bowl of vanilla yoghurt with quark, nuts and raisins & tea... left me feeling too full -> My lunch was pretty huge. Helped decorate the Christmas tree... or i mean, i stood there and took pictures. Thats the same thing right?

17: Photos and family time:
Jump for joy... or something like that!

Deleting photos on Picasa as i had used up all my 100%... and after deleting hundreds of photos it just brought me down to 98,5% crazy!!!

- I forgot about taking a picture so have no picture from this hour and have nothing to take a photo of anyway! - 

Dinner time. Watching youtube videos. Wrapping Christmas presents.

20: Blogging. . 


  1. You should to this once a week or every other week. Its something new on your blog and i like it.
    But i am sure that it takes a good memory to take pictures of every hour.

    1. Thank you :) I can only really do it during breaks or weekends as otherwise i forget about it!! And yeah its hard to remember to take a picture every hour, haha!

  2. Hey Izzy,
    I wrote an e-mail a week ago to your outlook account, think it ended up in your junk ordner?

    1. I haven't answered all emails but I would resend it just in case and ill keep checking my junk mail in the next few days :)
