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!

When the body and mind call for rest
Those mornings when you wake up and you just know that you arent going to do much. When there is a sort of brain fog and a tired body, then the best thing to do is just call it a rest day and keep lying in bed for a while! Todays plans are to head home (spent the night at my boyfriend's place) and then just watch series, clean my room, maybe do some baking and also read a little. I've actually finally started reading again!! I recently got asked what my hobbies and interests were (apart from food and exercise which might be obvious) and i forgot to mention reading. I LOVE reading and when i was younger i read all the time, of course back then there were no smartphones and connection to the internet took forever, so when i wasnt out running about and being active i would be reading. Though as i grew up and internet became a big part of my life and the rest of my time was taken up by school and studying there wasnt much time left for readin if it wasnt a must for school. So the past 7-8 years i really havent read that much. The amount of books i have read in these 7-8 years is pretty much the same amount i would read in 6-12 months when i was younger ( and books that were 300-600 pages long). But back to the start.... so i finally downloaded a book on my Kindle. Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn (authoer of gone girl - which was a really good book!) and so far its good, though ive only gotten around 10% into the book (my kindle shows % not pages XD). I dont have alot of time for reading even now because i do alot of stuff online and such but i am trying to make time for it, to take 20 minutes away from the screen and just lie down and read, its very relaxing and something i love!!
I am also thinking about maybe doing some baking today - maybe one of the recipes i posted yesterday :) Something sweet and salty anyway... like chocolate and pretzels or something like that!! I am thinking about cakes for my birthday and i love going all out when i make cakes, and my birthday this year feels kind of special this year mostly because of everything i have gone through and how i have felt recently so my birthday hasnt seemed like something positive or something i have looked forward to. But also because i never actually thought i would make it to that age. So this year i want to make 1 or 2 extravagant cakes but should maybe try making them first and see if they work!!
On a sidenote, I am awful at buying presents... i seriously never know what to buy. But for my boyfriends birthday (on Thursday) i came up with a really good present idea and bought it 2 weeks ago and ive been waiting for it to arrive ever since.... but nope and i cant track it either -_- So right now i am just hoping that it will arrive today or tomorrow, because otherwise i dont know what to do.... Especially as i am excited to give him the present. Swedish postal systems suck sometimes, but thats life i guess... it doesnt always go as planned.
For now, its time to head home and continue my very non active day :):)
How are you spending your Tuesday?
