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

A day of socialising and eating
8.30pm and the first time I have to update my blog. But that's life and it's kind of nice as well, to just live life. My day started very early as I was going to breakfast with my sister at a hotel. I had a gift card where I could go 2 for 1 at a hotel and I thought it would be fun to go with my sister. So as the breakfast was from 7.30-11 we decided to meet at 9.30 so we would have some time to eat!
It was my first time eating breakfast /brunch there but it was a really nice place with really good food, especially the scrambled eggs!!
Once we were done and filled up with delicious food we took a shopping round where I bought myself a birthday or new years outfit. Not sure which event I will use it for but I loved the jumpsuit!
That crazy hair when i dont have time for long hair XD
Then after a while of browsing shops my sister decided to head home and get some rest and she is still half sick and as I had plans to meet friends I sat at a cafe with a coffee and a yoghurt and nut mix and then worked through some emails. It's been a long time since I've answered emails so I felt it was time to answer a few anyway. So I worked my way through some emails before I met up with 2 of my friends and we went to a cafe and I decided to eat a late lunch /early dinner while we sat and talked for a few hours. Though I felt that after an hour I completely zoned out. I couldn't focus at all and what they said just sounded like buzzing so I had to excuse myself to the bathroom to take some time to just get back into focus. I felt how my energy had been drained and I just felt tired but I went back out with a smile and was able to continue socialising before we headed our separate ways and I met my sister again to go see Mockingjay part 2! And of course cinema snacks are a must so some chocolate covered nuts, 2 types of chocolate for my sister and she also bought some type of "cinema snack/chip" that we shared. What did I think of the movie? I thought it was very good though not one of those "ph my gosh amazing" movies but it was a good way to end the films and there was alot that happened all the time! Have any of you seen the movie? What did you think? :)
Was tempted to buy donuts even if i wasnt craving one, but just to say that have bought and tried a Dunkin Donuts... but ill buy one when i am craving one so it can be enjoyed :)
And then after the movie we walked a few stations and then headed home which is where I currently am.... and oh my what a long day XD not used to so much in one day and has definitely taken some of my energy but it has also been a good day. I knew that if I had headed home after the shopping round I wouldn't have wanted to leave again so it was good that I just sat at a cafe to work. Tomorrow it's crossfit then some maths studying and then an evening to myself at home which is very much needed!!
I hope you have had a lovely Saturday :) Realised that this also became a type of food diary, hahah you get to see everything I have eaten today. Though I don't need to write out amounts I ate of the cinema snacks as that isn't relevant! XD
