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

Race day!!

After a night of running in my dreams and feeling the need to pee every 5 minutes i wake up and time to face reality, and actually run!! The nerves and excitment are REAL. As i type this i am shaking... whether its from caffeine, excitment or nerves im not sure... all 3 i guess :) I have gotten so many helpful tips and advice from my readers so thank you so much!!! That means alot to me and i have taken it all onboard! I am sure once i begin running the nerves will go away, it is always like this for me. Even when i am going to run like a 5km school run i get so nervous even though i know i can physically run it... its the mental side that suddenly starts doubting me!!

But i am happy, nervous and excited. Its grey weather so there might be a little sunshine but there is also a chance of rain (EDIT. At first i wrote, there is a also a chance of run.... XD Guess what is on my mind? There is a 99.9% chance of run!!!) which isnt as fun, but it's just to keep running and hopefully my mum, step dad and A will be there waiting for me when i cross the finish line :)

Now... warm up, stretch, continue eating rice cakes and small sips of water. The only problem when i am this nervous is that i feel like i need to pee every 5 minutes, hahaha.

I will write a post again as soon as i can :)
