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!

Friday 14th August

Hello there :)

It's Friday and a new day, i really can't complain. I love Fridays and I am hoping that today and this weekend will be awesome :) This morning i woke up feeling refreshed and ready for the day. Waking up with a smile on my face and ready for a good day.

The morning started with a short run, this time instead of my mind protesting, it was my lungs. Couldnt get enough oxygen, the best way to describe the feeling is imagine running, or just living life with a really tight belt around your lungs (half way). So you can only really breathe in half way into your lungs, so at times you get this suffocating feeling. A panicked feeling because you arent getting enough oxygen (which can also make me feel light headed and dizzy). Or a bit like when you want to yawn and take a huge breath in, but you can't and it becomes this annoying feeling inside of you, an irriation because you need to breathe in deeply. That was how it felt today, so a little worried about tomorrow, but i know that worrying won't help. Running and running races is for fun, so i juust want to enjoy myself, i really dont care about the time. But the experience and the enjoyment of running!!

As usual during my runs or walks, i get the most creativity and lots of ideas. So 10 minutes into the run i just stopped and began typing posts on my phone. Didnt want to forget my ideas and thoughts!! As to not make myself look strange i did some stretching at the same time, hahaha. Multitasking at it's best :) If you ever get stuck writing an essay or something else, then go for a 10 - 15 minute walk, trust me it can be very helpful. Or just jump around for 5 minutes, Get the oxygen and blood flowing and the creativity will come! If not, well then give yourself a break and the creativity will come back soon (as well as the ideas!)

Anyway, i just want to wish you all a great day and hope you have an awesome Friday. Lets all focus on making this a positive day!! :)
