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!

(Stu)dying and taking a break to enjoy the sunshine

What a weird weird day it has been.... nothing has been normal today. That doesnt mean its a bad thing, but everything has just been so different!!
  I finished early today so i then went and bought myself something to eat, because i didnt have the time to start fixing something at home, so that resulted in a salad with chicken, sun dried tomatoes, avocado and cottage cheese & a little stevia sweetned bar which was on sale!

^Note.. it was a snack, not lunch.

And then i sat 4 and a half hours studying with onl 2 bathroom breaks. I have so much to do so the time just flew by. Then when i was getting ready to lie in bed and take a little study break my sister asks if i want to go workout with her.... and the physical part of me wanted to as i had alot of energy, but my mental side was saying 'no, im too tired' so i said no, though only feeling 90% convinced, because i did want to workout with her...  But instead she suggested we take a powerwalk and well, the sun was shining and i thought... might as well get some sunlight and it will make me feel better! Which it absaloutly did, so no regrets about folllowing with! Instead some sister bonding time and some playtime at an outside gym! I also saw the first 'snake' for this year... my sister screamed and panicked, i crouched down and took pictures...  Not really sure which reaction was best, haha!!

This evening i need to continue with assignments :( But now i have more energy so it doesnt feel so bad! I love spring/summer and when its warm and light outside so you can go for evening walks :)


  1. I don't think you need to point out whether the meal was a snack or dinner. It's your own business and besides, to my eye, they actually are usually pretty much the same. I'm not saying that you shouldn't do that but you have no duty to explain your food to others anyway (after all, none of us really wants to do that).

    Neat pictures you've got there! Have fun with your assignments.

    1. Your right I don't need to do it... but I know if I don't ill get a comment like "why don't you eat carbs for lunch" or"that's not enough for lunch" etc ... but who cares anyway really. I eat for myself and my body!! And thank you :) how is school going for you?

    2. Ah, true for the comments.
      Thanks for askinh! I'm super jumpy with my school for now. There is not that much to do and my final exam week is going to be easy, but the idea of the last two weeks of school ahead is enough to make me nervous - it's _almost_ over! Still, there is excitement too - I've taken up a couple of voluntary challenges and feel very confident with them. So, I guess I'm just waiting for all this to be done!

  2. Ahh I love these kinds of posts! Sounds like a productive day and your food looks amazing! It almost reminds me of summer! Also is that 'outside jungle-gym' at a park or something or in you back garden? It looks like the perfect form of procrastination! Have a good day and good luck with the last bit of school! I've got just over five months left of school!
