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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

Evening yoga

Today i ended (sort of) my day with yoga! Kundalini yoga to be exact, as my mum is a Kundalini yoga teacher. Ive gone to her classes several times before and never really found that yoga connection despite being a yoga child when i was younger. Its not really my thing anymore, though i believe 150% that yoga is good and has alot of benefits and i truly wish i liked Kundalini yoga, though its not for me. Even this time when i tried it, i found it wasnt really my thing. Though it didnt help that i had training pain in pretty much every muscle so that each movement felt 10 times harder and my thoughts wandered each time there was rest or meditation.
   I guess i just need to find another yoga form which is more my style, my mum has no problem with this. She would just like me to do yoga and meditation more often for my own benefit!! And i think it can help with restlessness, stress, anxiety etc

Ive tried it anyway which is important, try things a few times before you say you like it or not!!

Do you do yoga? Which type? :) 





I made a not so lovely face when i made this pose, hahaha so had to blur my face!!

    1. I second this. Jillian Michaels Yoga Meltdown and Bob Harper Yoga Warrior are great ones. Although, I think the Bob Harper one is more fun.

  2. Try vinyasa or power yoga. If you type ali kamenova yoga into youtube, she has loads of videos for all levels. I do them sometimes and they are really hard (if you're doing them right!) they are really dynamic and you sweat with them but also feel stretched out.
