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!

Tuesday morning

Good morning!!!
   After 10 hours sleep i woke up feeling slightly disorientated, like i had slept too long..... going for sleeping maybe 6 hours to 10 hours, not the perfect balance really. I try to aim for 7-8 hours sleep each night as that is where my body feels best but its so hard when you dont feel tired until 11pm or 12am.

Do you try to sleep 7-9 hours each night? Not sleeping enough, or sleeping too much are both bad, so getting enough sleep is important as well!

Onto another topic... School. Today i only had 2 lessons and as i have so much work to do i felt i would much rather stay at home and work on that, as well as having to go to the doctors to pick up some things (which takes like an hour there and then an hour back... unless my mum drives me, then it takes 30 minutes there and 30 minutes back) as well as going to the pharmacy to pick up medicine!
   As well as having other small things i need to work on and such so felt that those were more important.... *Bad example* but well priortizing is what i do and today i just want to work on all my assignments, memorize my presentation, work on maths as well as having to pay some attention to my CF care with going to the doctors and pharmacy!!

So that is my day today :) Busy like usual, but i dont mind. I like having things to do and i dont feel stressed over having a checklist... i only feel stressed when i feel i dont have the time to accomplish the things on the check list!!!

I hope you all have a lovely day :) How are YOU spending your day? :)

Below.... Pictures from yesterday (feeling super tired). My afternoon snack. And breakfast this morning!


  1. Good morning!
    I try to aim 7-8 hours of sleep as I feel best after 8 hours :) though when I had a tough week with lots of days spent working then my body lets me know that it needs more rest so on the weekend I simply sleep till noon :D
    1,5 years ago that wouldn't have been imaginable for me but by time I have learned to give my body those extra hours :))

    Have a great day, Izzy!

    1. Ohh that sounds like a very good idea :) I usually do the same during the weekends... or I try to sleep a few hours more than on weekdays so that my body gets enough energy and recovery time!! When I was sick I couldn't sleep either, and hated sleeping but at the same time loved it. But it's nice now to just be able to sleep in because that's shat the body needs!

  2. I'm sleeping around 9 hours a day but I'm on some kind of medication that makes you sleep. Usually, I used to sleep somewhat around 6 hours a day.
    I'm officially graduated now and am a Bachelor of Arts!
    Have a great day and all the best for school!

    1. Ohh congratulations!!! That is awesome :) and 9 hours is a good amount. Hopefully you don't feel tired when you wake up, which can often happen when you are on medicines.
