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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

New goals

Tomorrow it is June and the 6th month of 2015!! Feels like January just a month ago ^_^

Time passes by quickly! ! And recently I have begun thinking about goals in my life. I need to have goals in my life and things to motivate me and to have a plan to reach that goal. If I feel I have nothing to work towards I can feel unmotivated and feel like there is no point in anything.
So here are some of my long term and short term goals:

Short term:
Practise being an aeroboxing instructor.
Start studying my 4 complementary courses before university.
Get a part time job.
Apply to be a running coach. - the chances are slim that I will get it, but I can atleast try.
Try Crossfit! I've long wanted to do it, but it's suoer expensive!!
Go to the theme park Liseberg in Gotehnburg.  Either with my boyfriend, sister or a friend!! I love theme parks.

Long term:
Run a marathon. ... I never thought I would have this as a goal. Because running a half marathon has serried difficult enough. ... but after reading and seeing so much status updates and pictures from the Stockholm marathon yesterday I now feel inspired and motivated enough to also run one. But also people ran the marathon in like 5hr 30 or almost 6 hours... and there were people who walked like half the distance... I didn't think you could do that. I thought it was just people who could run the whole distance and run in like in like 4 hours. That's why I've never felt that a marathon is for me, but i am pretty certain I could run a marathon in around 4 hours +/- .... so now I need to save up for proper running shoes. Find a route which is more than 20km and begin practising and maybe in a year's time I will be running Stockholm marathon?

I also have a goal to travel around the world and run races!!! So much fun I am excited just thinking about it :)

Get stronger. I don't have any physical goals and my goal isn't to build muscle, but to be stronger... which does result in more muscle, sort of. But it's going to be more weights and more reps to build endurance and strength!!


Get a new tattoo - as mentioned a few posts ago! 

I do of course have some more goals but these are my main ones!!! What are your goals? :)

  2. Wow, these are some big and amazing goals. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! And it's funny you'd mention Liseberg. I've only been to Sweden once before [unfortunately] but - despite not being a fan of theme parks in general - went there with my sister. Her au-pair family had tickets so we were able to go for free - who'd say no to that?!
