Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

I am a generally happy girl who loves running, going to the gym and eating food!! Though my life has been very different.
I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia & purging tendencies & over exercising. I was depressed and self harmed. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
After alot of struggles, lots of ups and downs, suicide attempts, tears, anxiety, panic and never thinking i would be healthy.
I am now declared healthy from anorexia nervosia.

I have been blogging for 4 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 am happy and healthy and living my life. Going to school, meeting friends and trying to find myself in this world.

I write about my daily life, but also try to write posts about how it was when i was sick, advice and tips.
I am open and friendly, so dont be scared about writing a post or sending me an email at:

Tired and a powernap

Going to school after c.a 5,5 hours sleep just isnt a good idea... or my first 3 lessons went fine, but my last lesson? I was actually worried i would fall asleep and hit my head on the table.... and the fact that there were only 5 others in the room meant that it would have been very obvious if i ended up falling asleep XD XD But thats life.... sometimes you dont get enough sleep.

However when i came home because i was so tired i was also really hungry and undecisive so both oatmeal with raspberries and pumpkin seeds as well as lactose free yoghurt with nuts. My plan was to keep myself awake until around 8 or 9pm, but by 6.30/7pm i decided to just crawl under the covers, turn off the light and take a power nap and im just after waking up now at 9pm. So nice to sleep and it was only 2 hours or so, so i hope that after eating some dinner now i will fall asleep again!!! XD

^^Felt like that today!!

Anyway, i thought i would just do a little update :) Hope that you are all doing ok!!!


  1. Hi Izzy,
    I have a question. Is quark really commonly eaten in Sweden? I live in Australia and they only stock one small tub in the whole supermarket and no ones really heard of it. Cottage cheese is slightly more common and we eat heaps of yogurt but just not quark. What's it like? :)

    1. can't speak for izzy but in Denmark it is very common now to eat both quark and 'skyr' think it might just be the same. it is very high in protein, filling and super delicious thick and creamy. whenever i go to sweden there are loads of quark options so it seems just as popular there as in Denmark

    2. Its SUPER common in Sweden, its ben like the 'new' thing for a while. Sweden is known as quite a 'healthy country' and there are lots of people who workout... but there are of course llots of people who dont. But because quark is high in protein and fills you up its a good option for many :) And like the anonymous said, there are lots and lots of different quark types and brands to choose from :)
