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:

Summer feelings

When the alarm rang this morning i was just not ready to get up so after hitting snooze for 30 minutes i decided to just turn it off and keep sleeping and then i woke up feeling refreshed and energetic at 8am! As the sun was shining and I was free from school i decided to do a morning run/walk. This week i am trying not to walk or run too much to keep my legs from getting too tired, but i also want to make sure that they are 'working properly' (hahah) so an interval walk/run in shorts out in the lovely weather!! It was around 11-13 degrees outside, not super warm but warm enough to wear shorts (when running/walking anyway... if you are just sitting still i dont know how warm it would have been).

Then when i had refueled with energy i headed into the city to do a few things followed by foam rolling and some strength training and then as i was too tired and didnt have the time to cook food i decided to just buy myself lunch: My favourite combination from the salad bar (Salad, chicken, cottage cheese, sundried tomatoes and falafels - all that is missing is the avocado :)) and then an apple and one of my favourite energy drinks on the side :)

While i was in the shop i also bought some snacks to share with my sister (and rest of family). Salted cashews, japenese mix, strawberries,natural licqourice (I love it!!) and chocolate. These are my typical summer snacks, so it feels like its the beginning of summer. Especially being free from school, having time to go for a run/walk in the morning and the sun shining..... Things are feeling positive. Even if i have spent the past 3 hours writing essays and doing research. When you have delicious snacks it goes quickly :)

Today is also my '3 months' together with my boyfriend and he surprisingly woke me up with a super sweet message reminding me of this :) haha, i dont know how he remembered. I only knew this because of the questionnaire i did yesterday!! Anyway the plans are to maybe go out and eat dinner with him, but plans are always so fluid so i'm not so sure what we'll do! But i definitely don't say no to getting my food served instead of having to cook it :)

Tomorrow will be a long day - will write about it tomorrow - but i am excited anyway, almost looking forward to it for some weird reason!! haha. All this positive energy, but its also because i have been so productive today... i can feel the work load slowly decreasing!! Days off school where you can just make up your own plan and schedule and work at your own pace and time are the best!!

For now... time to continue studying!!
