Life without Anorexia
My motto is 'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'
I am a generally happy girl who loves running, going to the gym and eating food!! Though my life has been very different.
I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia & purging tendencies & over exercising. I was depressed and self harmed. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
After alot of struggles, lots of ups and downs, suicide attempts, tears, anxiety, panic and never thinking i would be healthy.
I am now declared healthy from anorexia nervosia.
I have been blogging for 4 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 am happy and healthy and living my life. Going to school, meeting friends and trying to find myself in this world.
I write about my daily life, but also try to write posts about how it was when i was sick, advice and tips.
I am open and friendly, so dont be scared about writing a post or sending me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Dinner at T.G.I.F on a Tuesday
Before bed I usually plan my day, what I'm going to do etc this gives me a sense of control and ease which is what I need. I wouldn't say I'm a control freak, not like the past. But I still need some sense of control.
However recently my days have not turned out as planed at all.
Woke up later than planned as there were people using fire crackers and other things outside which made daisy bark and panic so was up until about 2am, when the noise finally stopped. After getting ready, eating my delicious breakfast and taking daisy for a walk I headed to the gym. Though I ended up consuming a little too much caffeine so began losing feeling in my body and felt dizzy, so after 40 minutes I had to leave. Reminder to myself to not consume too much caffeine at once, it leaves you feeling dizzy and a crazy fast heart beat!!! Hahah.
I then headed to a shopping centrum as i head to get a pair of tights and also found a top on sale. When I was going to buy those items I noticed that there was a ladybug on the top!!! It's not everyday you see that, but it put a smile on my face anyway :)
Then some necessary food shopping followed by lunch the cleaning the house, answering emails (Im sorry I still have so many emails to answer. I promise to try get around to it. I feel so bad that I haven't gotten around to answering you all.)
Lunch: Quorn meat balls, falafels, potatoe salad, bread with spread & watermelon and nuts for dessert.
Then I quickly got ready before meeting my boyfriend and heading town to go to our usual place for dinner.
Today I ordered a delicious salmon salad and actually ordered a drink as well. I never drink, like never. But I have on my 101 things to do to drink 5 alcoholic drinks at TGIF and so I decided to try one because I was craving one. As simple as that :) and it was delicious, but I must say... I felt a little affected by the alcohol!
Drink: Blackberry Long Island Tea: Vodka, gin, run, Bols Triple Sec, Bols raspberry, fresh blackberries, lime juice, lemon juice, lemon-lime soda
And to finish it off I drank a bit of my boyfriends chocolate milkshake. I love chocolate but chocolate ice cream or milkshake is not my thing. Not even Ben and jerrys chocolate ice cream is nice. ... strange really!!
After dinner we took a walk and then home again!!! Feels alot like Friday, but that is beacause we ate at T.G.I.F, hahaha :)
