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!

Running is a form of therapy

With new music on my playlists, the sun shining and a smile on my face i let my legs carry me forward in the sunshine. It really is beautiful where A lives, however i do think that running in the forest is my favourite. When there are loads of cars driving by and its concrete for most of the way its not as relaxing, but still very enjoyable. Running gives me time to think, i can process different things in my mind and gives me time to think rationally about things, not stress about certain things going on in my life or things that worried me.
  It's a form of freedom and therapy for me, though all exercise is but with running then its like i dont have to think about that one last rep or think about proper form... my body and legs know what they are doing so my mind has time to wander.

Running in nature is my favourite, it feels a bit like flying as well as being able to see so many new things as well as knowing that you are actually moving forward, not like on a treadmill when you see the same thing for the whole time you are on the treadmill. But everyone has their preferences and thats ok :) Everyone is different, thats what makes us unique!!

After my morning run i refueled with a second breakfast and for the rest of the day i am just going to study, answer emails, try to get around to answering comments as well as writing blog posts... so basically the next 6-8 hours i will be sitting infront of my computer working until A comes home!!! :)

How are you spending your day today? :)


  1. That's how I feel when I go kinda clears my head and I feel much calmer afterwards. :)
    Just being outside with nature is 'uplifting'.

    Today i'm clearing out old clothes that don't fit and (to help me have good body image thoughts), I am going shopping to buy some that fit - and make me feel fab! x

    1. Exactly, just being outside is great :)
      And sounds like a lovely day, you are doing the right thing by throwing away those clothes and buying new ones which look and fit better :) I hope it goes well and you enjoy your day!!
