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:

Ive gotten a few questions recently i thought i would answer :)

How often do i drink soda/diet soda?
At the moment i am drinking quite a bit of diet soda... it sort of naturally happens when it gets warmer or when i have 'movie nights'... and its been alot of movie watching recently. And i rarely drink normal soda but if i am out and that is what they have then i might drink it, depending on how i feel.

What is my favourite snack?
This is almost too hard to answer because well... i love snacking and there are so many good combinations! But i will say my top 5 snacks at the moment:

1) Egg white oatmeal (with extra salt... Mmmmm!) with casein, nuts and milk!
2) Vegetables with dip
3) Protein/caseinfluff with just about anything... granola, nuts, fruit, berries, on its own
4) Cold food as snacks.... Recently ive been snacking on left over dinners somedays and i love it. I've always loved left overs and it saves preparation time!! A snack doesnt just have to be yoghurt/oatmeal.. it can be anything really!
5) And of course... waffles/pancakes. Topped with cottage cheese, nut butter, nuts, berries... MMmmmmm!

What are my plans after graduation?
Well the plan was to work, but i havent gotten a job.... (havent been actively searching either as i havent had the time.) so my plan is to study 4 complementary courses for 1-2 years before i then start my university course (Nutrition) and also doing some courses on exercise and such! And hopefully sometime i will get a part time job so that i will have a good economy for when i study.

What are my plans during the summer?
Like mentioned above, i havent gotten a summer job so i will have alot of freetime. Unless i get a job offer... which i am hoping i do. (Of course i want free time, sunshine etc but having an income is even better!) So my plans are to just relax, run a few races, maybe travel or go camping with my boyfriend, spend time with my friends before they leave to study in different countries, enjoy some free time and some me time!!!

Have i ever thought about writing a book?
Yes  I have and i have even written a few chapter drafts... however finding the time to write is hard, but also its quite a big step. Because if i write a book about my life and what i have been through then I make myself even more vulnerable and my story becomes even more Google-able (??) There are both pros and cons to writing a book, but yes... i would like to. But then i dont think it would just be a biography, it would include helpful tips and advice :)

Do i prefer running or walking?
Feels so tough to answer this because i love both... and it depends on the circumstances. I love running and the feeling of flying forward, being free and moving fast. But then walking is super awesome as well... you just plug in a podcast or some music and you can just walk and walk and walk. And i love walking places as well, getting off a station early and seeing the new location, walking down small routes (not in the scary parts of the city!! XD) But i love just wandering around, seeing new things!! Thats what i love about going on holidays, when you walk around the place and see new things... stop and take an ice cream or sit in the sun/go into a cafe and drink some warm coffee its a cold place you are visiting, take photos... i love it!!! :)


  1. I haven't read your blog for a few months and missed out on you getting a boyfriend! I've been a fan of your blog for years. Can you please tell me the story? :-)

    1. Ohh haha, must seem quite confusing then :):) We began talking online at the start of January and then we went on a few dates and then became official at the end of January - so we've been together 3+ months now :) I mention him quite a bit as i spend alot of time at his place and such!! :) If you have any more questions just let me know :)

  2. Who says the book has to be published or be read by others? You could write it for you! :)

    1. That is very true :) But i dont know if i would want to put down all that work just so that i would read it... because i mean, i already know my story. I know what i have been through, and there are lots of things which havent been mentioned on here which i have been through. But i have learnt from them all and they have made me who i am!
