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!

Get out into nature

Hello :)

After todays wonderful workout with my sister where i acted as an instructor - i keep creating new moves which i love and also feel more confident in the role of an instructor!! So i want to keep training at it and who knows, maybe one day i will hold a class with strangers? Might be a good partime job during summer if i can manage to get people to come... and pay! haha.

After our workout we took a few photos which you can see below..... you can see the happiness in my face which i love :) Its fun to do different workouts! Though when you love all types of exercise you just want to do it all in one day, which isnt possible! haha

^^How i actually look when im not posing!

Once we came home i made myself lunch and then sat by my computer for the next 3 hours where i did school work and answered emails!! By now im feeling super tired and my excitment levels to go out tonight are -5, haha. But im sure that will change once i start getting ready and drink some coffee :) But for now it might be a little nap or just some lying in bed with a series and a 2 or 3 questbars.... I cant help myself, one just isnt filling!!

I hope you all have a nice evening/morning/day and can face whatever is troubling you or giving you anxiety. OR you can stay positive and happy if that is the case :)


  1. Izzy what do you do on bad body image days or puffy days with anxiety? Maybe a post on that or some quick tips for the moment? I don't want it to ruin my day !

    1. This post might help you :)

  2. Your are gorgeous and glow! you are the definition of health! Thank you for sharing everything with us

  3. Could you do a post in how much its ok to sit/relax/chill during a day? I get anxiety when I rest, but I know thats unhealthy. And maybe how much you do to?

    1. When im not at the gym or working out or in the kitchen making myself food im either sitting and blogging or studying or lying in bed watching series ;);) So like 95% of the day im resting :) And thats ok... its ok to rest 100% of the day as well. There is nothing bad with that and you definitely shouldnt feel guilty for it :)
      Find a good film or series to watch and watch that.. and if you need something to do wtih your hands, download some games on your phone or do some knitting or drawing or doodling etc while watching a fiml or series. Thats what i do :) I always draw or am on Tumblr or on a game on my phone when i watch series and that :)

      When im in school then i get up, get ready, either workout before school or during a long break, sit all day in school, sit and study/watch a series when i come home, go to bed... and just get up when im walking to transport or going to the kitchen/bathroom :)

      Resting is ok, its fine for your body. Nothing will happen because you sit for 30 minutes or 3 hours :) Its just that you can feel a little stiff :) haha
