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!

Feeling happy and strong

What a good day!!! I just want to smile all evening :) it's such a nice feeling :)
My day started in the best way possible, sleeping in (until 9, hahah) and waking up beside my boyfriend! I also washed my hair which instantly makes me happy and  good about myself! It's funny how such a small thing makes such a difference!! We ended up eating breakfast really late today and then spent the next 90 minutes trying to decide what to do and eventually decide to go out for lunch and then I had a workout planned.

My boyfriend had gone a month without pizza so we decided to go to a pizza place so he could finally eat one again :) as I don't like melted cheese (or cheese in getneal) I went for a chicken salad which had sundried tomatoes and other delicious things with garlic bread on the side!!! Filling and soo soo good!! I can eat pizza but I don't personally like it (trust me I've eaten it several times to prove to my family and myself that it's not a fear food.) But if i get to choose I choose to not eat it.
Then I headed to the gym filled with energy and followed my new create workout plan and it was soo much fun. The time just flew by and I had so much energy and strength. This new motivation and energy found!! And afterwards I was just smiling, even when I missed the train and had to wait 10 minutes I felt so happy!

This is what I need.... New goals, a type of routine and some sort of schedule. This new workout plan is going to make a difference in my mood,in my life.... not feeling so lost. But focusing on strength, new energy found! I love it :) and can't deny, it would be nice to notice progress (not meaning physical, but i would mind a bigger butt XD) in the next few weeks! :) Whether that means +/- some kilo i dont really know or care, whatever happens happens!

Then home and plans to eat delicious food and watch a series and go to bed early. Because tomorrow I have the first day of my annual CF check ups where they basically test everything and do all these types of tests. And tomorrow I need to fast until after 12pm and I need to be at the hospital at 7am :( and I'm not even allowed to drink water unter after 12pm.... I have no idea how I will manage :( I mean I'm not normally so hungry in the mornings but after being awake so long (have to get up around 5/5.30am) i know that I will have low blood sugar and be super hangry. Hahah. Good thing I'm going alone so that I don't act like a bitch to anyone! !! Though I think it's stupid I have to fast so long. :( Hahahah I can barely go 2-3 hours in the day without eating,  but I am going to eat a super mega huge night snack and hopefully that will give me energy :)

Also now when I think about it.... no coffee tomorrow :( already have anxiety about all the tests and spending a whole day (and thursday) in hospital,  but now no coffee, food or water :( #problems


  1. Yeah! Good for you! My day went great as well. I wrote 6,5 pages with ease and trapped a mosquito under the toilet seat lid. What else could you ask for?

  2. Hi Izzy, I'd love to know if you have ever got stuck in a exercise rut. I love exercising, I always have, and I lived in the mountains so I had more activities. Now I live in a city and I go on my stationary bike or elliptical, all the time. I'm getting bored with the same thing but I can't afford a gym membership and its hard to do anything outside. I want to do other things and be more spontaneous but can't think of any other things to do that's actually fun. Any ideas or tips on getting into strength training?

  3. So glad you're feeling better! ♥♥ I'd love to hear this new workout plan for the butt, mine needs a bit of a boost too!! Haha ;)

  4. Nice to hear you're feeling good today! :) I recently had to fast (no food or water, or gum or anything!!!) until 4 pm. I hated it. Although it made me wonder how the heck i managed to go without food for days when I had Anorexia. Man, recovery rules! ;) Happy you have figured out a workout schedule. Which exercises are you focusing on now? :)

  5. Glad to hear you're feeling so good! It brings a smile to my face! It sounds like you had a lovely day. I hope your next few days at the hospital go ok, and hope the fasting isn't triggering or too hard for you! Xx
