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:

Messy buns and dark circles under your eyes

My day can be summed up with tiredness and messy buns.

Whats better than spending the day in your bed and just resting when you feel like this! I was going to take CV photos today, but my family had made other plans :/ So i guess i will do that next week instead. Its better off anyway as my hair is a mess (I always have the problem of... "im going to workout/run tomorrow so there is no point washing your hair now" dilemma. hahah.) and i am feeling kind of tired anyway.

Tomorrow is my run and i am actually excited for it now :) I cant pick up my number bib until an hour before the race -_-  Kind of sucks as i love seeing the number, and just getting ready in the morning and able to put on the number bib or wear the top you get with the race!! I've always told myself that if this run goes well (havent been runnning so much recently due to knee pain and lack of motivation) then i am going to sign up for a 10km run next Saturday :) So if it feels good in my knees tomorrow then i'll sign up, if there are places left for the race next Saturday.

This evening i am going to load up with food so that i have extra energy tomorrow, always a good idea before a race :)

My room is a mess at the moment, hahah. I am not even going to apologize XD Spending so little time in my room at the moment and when i am in there i am either in need of rest or busy writing posts/emailing, so dont have time to clean my room = clothes everywhere.
