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

Running - you love it and hate it at the same time

Running! !! It's strange how you can love and despise (in some ways) something so much at the same time. But if I'm honest it's 95% love and just that 5% when you feel like dying and promise yourself never again. Though once you cross that finish line you are already planning your next run! An addiction running races, but a good addiction!! :) :)
I had to be at the starting line an hour before my race time began to pick up my number bib. So once I had done that I sat in the shadow, sipped on juice and water as it was 25 degrees outside. Then I began talking with another runner and warmed up with him and talked about running which was fun!!
And then suddenly it was 12.20 and time to stand by the start line! And then the buzzer went off and it was time to start running...... and damn! !! It was warm, there were seriously 101 uphills and it was tough.tough.tough.
  I wanted to lie down, stop to try to breath and I kept saying never again. The heat was awful and all the uphills as well as my lungs saying no. But finally I crossed the finish line with a smile (or maybe it was pain?) On my face... I'm not really sure, hahah!!!
Sitting down, drinking lots of water and juice, talking with some runners and then a km run to where my boyfriend had parked the car! !
Both pain and joy, but mostly enjoyment. Though running in this type of heat is hard, that's why I prefer my 8am morning runs.  Don't need to suffer heat stroke!!
