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!

Starting to feel better & busy working

Hello :):)
   I feel like i want to apologise for terrible updating - again. But its not that terrible, its just in my head. According to all the lovely comments you are leaving me - thank you so much, that is not the truth :)

Today i am feeling alot better, my sore throat is 90% gone and i was able to go for a morning walk (or more.... morning skate? haha. Just imagine a path covered in ice, thats how it was.) it took 10 minutes just to get to the actual 'nature/forest walking part' when usually it takes like 2 minutes! But it was nice to get fresh air and to move my body. My lungs dont appreciate the whole not doing anything. Its a complicated relationship! XD
  Otherwise i am bloating extremely! My bodies way of saying that it is trying to get better from an infection? Most probably. 2+ years ago having lots of bloating would have made me feel quite guilty and i would not have liked the fact that i havent worked out. In the past week i have only done one workout. But thats life!

Onto other topics... i have some nasty deadlines due tomorrow and Sunday so that means school work needs to be done and it is the absaloute worst right now. I would like to take a break from it all, but instead im just doing small bits now and again throughout the day to atleast do something.

And i am also working on my blog.... you might notice a few blog changes in the next days (or weeks) depending on how long it takes me..... and whether i decide to make the change or not. But there is alot i need to fix before it happens and im hoping they will just be automatic changes and not really mess up anything with posts, links, following etc Not sure if i will forewarn the change or not, i'll see :)  But that is what i have been working on alot for the past few weeks trying to get things done and research and edit and fix etc :)

And onto the final topic change..... its hard to feel sleepy and tired when you have spent 99% of your day inside doing nothing. Its 10pm and tiredness can not at all be found inside my body..... guess its a good thing im taking another day off tomorrow - to fully get better. Because i feel like i wont be falling asleep for another few hours. XD

So... tell me about your day ? :)

^^Breakfast this morning

  2. Do you eat less when you feel like this? Since you aren't as active during the day?

    1. I don't count calories or think about how much food I eat so it's hard to compare. But I would say I'm eating roughly the same. But then I don't really eat a pre or.post workout snack when I don't work out. So a little difference maybe :)

  3. Izzy is it ok to have just a week of just rest from strict food and exercise? Just eating extra yummy foods like chocolate and cake, and resting/sleeping in, and laying around more? Is that alright? Will it make me gain or something?

    1. Of course it's ok :) in fact sometimes it's a good idea because that is exactly what your mind and body need :) unless you are eating extremely bug amounts then no, it shouldn't affect your weight. :) if you need to rest a whole week snö just eat ice cream and chocolate, go for it.

  4. What do you do when your depressive and low/suicidal thoughts come back sometimes? Like when you just feel pointless and upset?

    1. It's actually the container that quark comes in :) I couldn't be bothered to put it in a bowl. So I topped that with nuts! It's always a good feeling when exams are done :)

    1. Good luck with your exams :) and with the pancakes I didn't eat them all at once as I didn't have the appetite for it. But I ate them all throughout the day :)
