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: email@example.com

Randoms from my day
Going to start this post with one of my favourite pictures:
It was taken after my race on Saturday. You could use different props and i of course wanted to hold the huge trophy because well, what are the chances that that will happen again? I might not have won the trophy but i can pretend that i did!!! Hahahah. After the picture was taken i realised i must look a little crazy, i hadnt seen how i looked or checed my hair or face or anything, i was just so caught up in the after race buzz and when i saw that you have photos taken i went in there, got my photo taken and afterwards realised i had no idea how i looked, haha.
But the picture turned out ok for being a little "out of it" XD
Also found this picture online which is kind of accurate:
Of course compared to some sports running isnt that expensive and if you dont want fancy earphones, super expensive runnig shoes, no gps watches and no super fancy brand workout clothes then it isnt that expensive. But for some, running isnt cheap either...
The good thing about running though is that it can be done almost anywhere... if you travel somewhere you can still go running, depends on where though. Not all places are safe, but still... pack with you shorts, sports bra and running shoes (if its somewhere warm!)
Though... maybe i am just really bad at packing but i always have like one big bag filled with running clothes and shoes (i.e need for cold weather and warm weather & gym clothes incase & need several different sports bras, tops, shorts, socks, underwear etc) and that all takes alot of room. And then i try to fit in normal clothes which takes up 10% of what i pack... hahha.
Runner problems i guess? :)
Onto a positive of the day.... 48 cans of deliciousness arrived today! Or well, i had to go to the post officed and carry it back... roughly 17kg. Endurance training... i like to lift things up and put them down. Not lift them up and then carry them for 5 minutes and up loads of stairs. XD But it was worth it! Now i can bring them with me on holiday :)
They are actually my favourite, yes i am an ambassador for True Transparency but i drink them because i think they are delicious :) But i do still drink other energy drinks as well, but i love these flavours :) I wouldnt lie about that.
I also found some "sweets" which i want to test.
Not even sure what they are or how they taste... but if they will make me extra strong then i dont care about the taste. hahahaha.
I didnt buy them, but next time i will... just to see :) They might be spicy, super sweet or super something.... who knows. XD
Also i realised today that a medicine i have been taking for the past 6 months or so is actually a chewable one... hahaha, i didnt have to swallow it XDXD it actually tastes good as well. Sometimes i dont read the labels on my medicines, i have so many of them that i lose track XD
Otherwise... i am freezing cold to the bone. The type of coldness where no amout of layers keep you warm. So i am loading up on loads of vitamins and minerals, just in case... dont want to end up catching a cold, it would be such awful timing.
Anyway, these were randoms from my day which i wanted to share!!
Do you have any randoms or anything you want to share :) Remember you can be anonymous so you can share whatever (nothing triggering!). But maybe you saw something funny, did something fun or maybe you made progress which you want to share :) Let me know!!!
