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: firstname.lastname@example.org

Listening to your body
Morning sunshine :)
Its Sunday morning and the sun is shining, it definitely feels like spring is on the way!! This morning during my run i found myself dreaming of when its summer and i can run in shorts outside, or wear a cap, listen to pod casts and take powerwalks in the sunshine!!! Day dreaming :)
Yesterday didnt really turn out like i had thought at all. Like i mentioned in my post yesterday i had planned to workout with my sister however i just wasnt feeling it.... neither physically or mentally. I took a much needed rest day on Friday but felt i needed another one yesterday. All the stress and not enough sleep really took its toll on me. And i am so glad that i rested yesterday as that was just what i needed. Today i woke up with both mental and physical energy :):) Rest is very much needed for the body, there is no need to keep pushing yourself. There is only so much the human body can do before it begins to give up!!!
So instead, i studied, ate lots, A came over and we didnt do so much, both feeling tired. Then we headed to his place and made pizza for dinner followed by ben and jerrys and a film! Today i am feeling very refreshed and glad that its Sunday so that i have a day to just do whatever :) No plans yet, apart from finishing my essay and sending it in before the deadline and then i'll see what we decide to do :)
As its so sunny i am hoping we will do something outside - got to enjoy the good weather and sun when it shows itself!
